Glorious day for golf

Turned up at 10.30am for a 11am tee off and we couldn’t get access into the clubhouse due to not knowing the security code on the door and we couldn’t see anyone inside. Just went straight on the course and played our full round without being questioned, we could have been anyone walking on and playing a free round of golf for 3 people. Apart from this small glitch it was a beautiful day for a round of golf, the course played very well with some of the greens not quite ready yet, however, all in all had a smashing day and all thanks to golfnow and Old Ranfurly.

Good value for money

Played the course on a wet day in late December and was pleasantly surprised on well it had held up against the rain. Could not fault the condition of the course. Spoke to some welcoming members who couldn’t have been friendlier.
The only thing I don’t like about the course is the layout of the final 3 holes. I feel like they have been crammed in. Playing the 18th feels like an anti-climax and think the 15th hole which greens in front of the club house would be a better fitting final hole.

Too slow

Played this course quite a lot this summer as not many others available via this app nearby so thank you to old randomly for that. Course in good condition and can be an enjoyable round but too often spoiled by slow play. Awful lot of blind tee shots where you have to wait for the bell and far too many four balls who simply refuse to let anybody through. Recipe for near five hour round. Me and playing partner walked off course today after 14 holes and near 4 hours, due to two four balls holding up whole course. Been similar experience last few times and getting worse. Had to wait almost every shot today and we are not particularly fast players, totally spoiled the day. Such a shame, golf etiquette becoming thing off the past

First time playing the course and I was not disappointed especially giving the time of year the course was bone dry giving the rain over the recent weeks and the greens were immaculate for the time year. Good test for all handicaps good variety of holes from long par 3s to driveable par 4s

Lovely course layout, beautiful views, well kept Greens

Love this wee course, not that long at 6000 odd yards, but some challenging holes well worth cash

Sunday afternoon game

We turned up early for our round and the staff were extremely helpful in allowing us to head out before our allotted tee time.
Course condition was excellent and the greens were spectacular. A single player came to join our 3 ball as there was a junior county final in front of us so we didn't want to hassle them.
To top it off he got a hole in one on the 13th which was just fantastic to witness.
Overall a great day out and we will be back!!

Poor fairways

The course has alot of scorch marks on the fairway.

Played a few years ago and the course was in excellent condition, nowadays.....it is probably worse than some £15-£20 public courses.

At present i wouldn't consider it and to stay with your local 'cheaper' course alternative.

Wouldnt complain about the layout. Yes some holes are blind but you either like that or don't like it.

No a bad track

Quirky course, 15 blind tee shots out of 18 so quite difficult to navigate your way round if your visiting for the first time, greenkeeper on course was very helpful on providing information at certain holes. No pro shop (that we could see) very kind young girl from the bar area gave us scorecards and checked us in. Staff and members we encountered were friendly although we were stuck behind a 4 ball of elderly gentleman from the 6th hole who didn't let us play through so pace of play from that point was extremely slow!!!!! the greenkeeper told us that they are regular slow players and refuse to let people play through this is obviously an issue so maybe the club should have a quiet word with these elderly gentleman about course etiquette. Greens were very true and fast also in great condition, its a well maintained course and great for an inland parkland course but quite hilly with blind shots galore. Overall I would reccomend this course

Course to Remember!

Loved this course. There are a few holes that you'll never see anything like anywhere else! A lot of blind holes. Beautiful course. Already booked to play there again before going back to Dubai.

Odd Layout

The greens were fantastic but the course layout is very odd, as an example, the 15th green finishes at the clubhouse, assuming this was the 18th in another layout. There was no mention prior to booking that a competition was on that day so the pace of play was chronic, an hour for three holes! We were so frustrated by the speed of play that we surrendered before the end (and before we lost daylight!).
