2nd 9

Enjoyed our game as none golfers having a day out. The 2nd 9 was a killer, just not used to all that walking back and forth across the fairway chasing my ball lol and the hills didn't help. Great day out.

Some great holes. Great back nine

Thoroughly enjoyed the round. Front nine good but surpassed by a more mature and hilly and very interesting back nine. For time of year course was in good condition. Slightly spoilt by a slow group of 4 in front who showed no interest in letting a 2 ball through. Back nine took forever waiting on most holes. Value for money was incredible value. Had. A nice bacon roll in clubhouse too. All in all a very enjoyable
Round in 5 degrees.

Querky back 9 but course needs some attention.

First time playing the course.

Chatted away to staff on arrival who were superb; very friendly and ensured we knew where we were going. Club house bar was well stocked and also an option after hole 9 which was very welcomed due to the heat. Again, everyone was very welcoming.

Buggies are available for hire however we chanced our arm on the day trying to get one so missed out. There are a number of trolleys which were free to use however most were broken or had no straps.

Played on a crazy hot day and the fairways were playing very firm. I usually drive 240y but was hitting 280y drives regularly. Greens were very firm and suited running the ball up as opposed to flying to the green and trying to hold the ball. Despite playing a Saturday, the greens did not play like they had been recently cut as there was a fair degree of growth and they were playing quite slow. The last few greens were very slow and noticeable different in speed to the front nine.

The course layout is a tail of two courses which is not surprising given the history. The front 9 are generally quite flat and play quite straight forward. There is not a huge amount of character to the front 9 holes but enjoyable enough. The back 9 are, however, full of character and quite hilly. Hole 11 is a stand out par 3 and against the wind is a challenge. There are a fair few blind tee shots but the usual marker poles are in place so not an issue. If I remember correctly, the only blind shot to a green was hole 17.

The bunkers were generally is poor quality and I did not come across one which had been raked properly.

What let the course down was the lack of signage at each tee. Only cheap painted post were in place. This did not lead to a very good presentation. It would be greatly improved to have hole numbers and yardage signs there. A small touch but makes a big difference. Also, it looked like the first cut of rough had been cut that week but the cuttings had been left in place. This meant finding and aying the ball more challenging that I think it needed to be. (I'm no greenkeeper so dont know whether other places do that but, again, something I've not noticed elsewhere).

We had a really enjoyable day and I would recommend this course. Details of some of the course presentation let it down slightly but nothing a bit of attention to detail can't fix.

Ultimately. I'm not sure I'd look to play this course again as there are far better options in the price range. With the hot deal, we paid £32 each, however, I'd very much put this course in the £12 to £15 bracket having played similar courses.

Peacefulness personified.

Nice rural course with some interesting holes. Incredibly peaceful setting and very quiet so set your own pace of play.
Only downside was staff being annoyingly pedantic about GolfNow booking. Empty course and made to wait 29 minutes when nobody was teeing off. Jobsworth behaviour spoiled a great afternoon

Cheap and maybe not so cheerful

Although I got this as a hot deal I wouldn’t say it was good value for money. Only played the front 9 due to lack of time but the condition of tees and greens were pretty poor. Maybe the back 9 is better? Saw someone drive a 4x4 down one of the fairways which pretty much summed it all up.

Great layout

Played castle park today On a gorgeous summer day weather was perfect pretty much had the course to myself
The course itself was in great condition except for the greens really patchy and very hard to putt on as they were so slow
The real problem I had was if you didn’t know the course you could easily loose your way as there were no signs at all to show you where to go and not one tee box sign to give you any idea of the hole layout .
Having said that really enjoyed the round with its stunning views .
Would recommend if was signposted better .

Little Gem

Played here for the first time the other day. What can I say? Course is a bit out the way, but well worth the trip. Given the time of the year and the recent weather, the course was in fantastic condition. No winter greens, no fairway mats, a real breath of fresh air. Considering you can take your pick of tee off times, the ground staff were out in force, getting the course ready for spring. A fairly quirky course, it has a bit of everything. Long holes, dog legs, elevated tees and greens, this was a lot of fun. The only negatives I could really say are-theres little to no signage. You're reliant on the map on the scorecard to get around. No "next tee" signs, or even signs on the tees. And secondly, the bunkers. I managed to avoid them for the round, but every time my friend was in them, or even as I walked past, it appears they are made up of 50% sand and 50% stones. Some real club wreckers. But overall, a very enjoyable experience, and will be back in the summer.

Hidden Gem

A little out of the way but well worth discovering. A bit like 2 totally different 9’s with the first more open and flatter and the second nine hilly and very scenic. When we played in February there was snow on the surrounding hills - it felt like we were in Switzerland!!
The greens were in excellent condition- the heavy rains had made some low spots soggy put playable.
Some very well designed hole layouts 11 and 17 were memorable as was the 12th - a par 3 up an incredible climb. Great fun and would like to go back in the summer. Host was very chatty and informative.

IT'S A BELTER

This is a brilliant course in fantastic condition. The greens were excellent and the fairways were mainly divot free. Really looking forward to playing again in the summer. The staff were brilliant and couldn't do enough for you. The food was very good and not expensive.
Give yourself a treat and go play this course, you won't regret it.
