Poor standard all round

Woman at reception took 10 minutes to find my booking when i was showing her my email and confirmation numbers. Tried to charge me £30 for a trolley for 2 hours and didnt give me a code to get onto the course. Other golfers leaving the course wouldnt let us on and were very rude when asked how to access the course (the gate needs a code) the course itself is a decent enough course but it could use a cut as the grass on the fairways is quite long and covered in daisys which makes it quite difficult to find your ball on a warm sunny day, which is quite frustrating when you hit a good straight shot down the middle of the fairway then have to spend 15 mins trying to find your ball. Quite a bit of slow play by the group infront who kept stopping to smoke and chat and wouldnt let us pass through, also quite rude from a golfer who was behind us playing one ball running and playing through us while on the middle of the 8th hole. Im all for playing past a group infront if your playing quicker but not while they are on the fairway - all in all not the best day out

Fairway needs cut.

The fairways were a disgrace. Even at this price you need to cut fairway and greens. This used to be a good little course. Also shorten the rough it's not the US Open. This will appear play up.
A little work and it could be a lovely course.

Disappointed ☹️

Don’t know how good/bad the course plays as we were not allowed on with trolleys and we were not informed about this beforehand and none of us had carry straps, wasted hour drive to get to course

Frustrating round

Booking didn’t mean a thing walk ins were allowed to take our tee time and then proceeded to hold up the whole course while a toddler hit some shots. £4.20 booking fee to Golfnow wasted money. The two adult players also played more than one ball each.
Totally inconsiderate to everyone one else. Several players behind us walked off. Some marshalling needed by staff. Most frustrating round of golf I’ve ever had. I know it’s a municipal course but some supervision needed!!

The course was very soft

The course was very soft and the cut grass could have been lifted. The new course areas if the ball entered these areas it was extremely hard to find.,

Greenkeeper needed

Bunkers all seeded over and unplayable, "fairways" more like the rough on a well maintained course. Greens in poor condition. In desperate need of some attention from a decent green keeper before it's too late.

Good practice course

Unless you want to practice putting, course is fine but the greens are
Unplayable I don’t think that this course has any kind of green management at all.

Great fun

This course is great fun, fantastic for a quick 9 holes with a few friends, it's relaxed and nothing special but value for money.
