Great Round

Really enjoyed this course, good variety of holes, course well maintained. Reduced fee of £15 as the greens had recently been hollow tined and top dressed so we’re running pretty slow, but for the price it was a real bargain. Would like to try here again in the summer.

Greens were in decent condition but apart from that, I wouldn't say a round of golf on this course is value for money. Paying £33 a round is to steep.

Tough course

Greens in excellent condition. Course generally in excellent condition. Very quiet - saw only two or three other golfers out on the course, surprising for a Friday morning. I am a high handicap golfer and I found it to be a tough course. Lots of long par four holes, many with a canyon of trees on either side of the tee area, allowing little room for error. Even the par three holes seem rather long, offering little respite for golfers of my standard. Perhaps more a course for mid handicappers or low handicappers. There were four of us and our round took four and a half hours. We were not held up at any point and I don’t think we were playing slowly; it’s just a long course, with lots of walking between some of the holes.

Poor day

Pace of play was painfully slow , also people just playing whatever holes they wanted , stuck behind 3 4 balls and 3 ball , ended up having to just walk off the course 12 holes in as we had already been out for 3 hours , wouldn’t recommend to anyone , not worth the money , all be it the staff at pro shop are great

A great round of golf

Ignore the other reviews this course is a very good round of golf. It has some excellent holes - I really enjoyed the high tees down to the low greens. The course map on the back of the scorecards is very good and easy to follow. The staff are extremely friendly and I will definitely be back.

Slowest greens ever and a free for all on the course.

Possibly the slowest greens I've ever encountered and I've played some right disasters. Some benefit of the doubt because maybe covid has impacted the green keeping but they really were terrible. Rest of the course was OK.

Just as big a problem was players not sticking to the course. It started on the first hole when a single player showed up just as we were teeing off bang on our tee time. He did not follow us onto the 2nd. All through the round we found out that single players jump in front and behind and wander the course playing whatever hole they want and don't give a thought that they are impacting play on a busy bank holiday. Then by hole 14 a trio of 'elderly' gentlemen did the same and the pace became even worse. We were done in 3hrs 50m so not the worst but it leaves a sour taste for a visitor and will come into my thinking if I ever come back. Not even convinced all these single players had a reserved tee time and suspect they just showed up on a sunny bank holiday chancing their arm on 'their' home course?

Great Course - early season greens

The layout of the course is great, good mixture of holes with different tests. A challenge for all
Golfers. Only slight issue was the greens, but I’m
Sure these will come good once the weather plays fair with the green keepers.
