Caldwell Bounce Game

This was the first time playing the course. The course is a parkland course with a some challenging holes. It is in excellent condition and the greens are stunning especially for this time of year.

I have seen this course many times without ever playing but after my first outing this is a hidden gem of a course. I will definitely be playing again. Highly recommended

Great course

Great course and layout but painfully slow play stick behind a four ball and never offered the opportunity to play through constantly waiting on the tee

Cracking Course

The course was in really good condition. There has recently been work undertaken on the greens which have been re-sanded. A little residue left over as it was undertaken very recently but the most positive element (unlike other courses I've been to recently) is that the greens were very consistent (even allowing for the sand).

The sunny weather promised never arrived but the course was solid underfoot despite the recent heavy rain and the morning dew that accompanied on the round.

Pace was good, I was caught behind 3 groups of members, a 4 ball, a 3 ball and then another 4 ball. The members were apologetic, but I was on my own so was to be expected. Having said that, I wasn't held up massively as the pace of the groups was decent.

The shop was closed and I didn't take access of the other facilities so cannot comment on them although both looked well setup from the outside.

Pace too slow

Course is in good condition but game was ruined by groups of elderly lady members who played painfully slow and I don’t think they knew what golf etiquette is.

Layout

1st time playing this course which was in great condition considering the amount of rain we had a couple days before we played, greens were in great condition, we were a 3 ball and played badly felt sorry for people behind us as we held them up they were ok with it would defo go back for another round as j know the layout a bit better the pro shop was closed so cant comment but this course is worth a visit some challenging holes with plenty of birdie chances and the 1st tee has the webcam so anyone can watch, and its a very busy course people always behind you

Well looked after course

Course condition was very good especially the greens. Very forgiving course. Unable to comment on clubhouse or Pro as both weren’t open. Members were friendly as sorted us score cards and gave some advise on playing course . Great value for money.

First time player

Was very impressed, with the whole set up, (did not use the off course amenities, so no rating) pro shop staff gave good advise about course layout, details also on score card. Tee boxes and greens 5* layout and course contours keeps you thinking, and loved the 17th 491 yard par 5
Will definitely be back. BG & HB
