Fabulous Course

Weather was great. Course was in fantastic condition. The greens were immaculate. There are a few extremely picturesque holes here on display. Highly recommended. I will be back.
Note: Could not rate off course amenities due to Covid restrictions - but there is a lovely outdoor coffee shed on the 9th hole.

An Enjoyable Return

Haven't played the course in years and when I last played it it was in great condition and if I'm being totally honest its only improved! Weather the last few days was terrible but the course held up extremely well. Stepping on the 16th tee box and looking out onto the race course is an excellent sight!! Really enjoyed it and the golf played wasn't bad either. Fantastic course. Women in the shop also very friendly and dealt with booking without any issue. Told us current course rules after weather conditions.

Every fairway was waterlogged

Extremely surprised that even taking into consideration the recent rain, every single fairway had standing water on it leading balls plugging and difficult conditions underfoot
