Nice course in decent condition

Decent layout with some challenging holes. Despite the lack of rain the course was in very good condition. The fairways were dry but the greens and approaches were excellent.

Nice course

A nicely laid out course, but as with most, has suffered on the fairways from the extremely dry conditions we have had. Balls would bounce off contours more than they would have if the fairways were green rather than parched and so more balls were lost in the side rough than would normally be expected. That said it is a nicely laid out course with mature trees lining each hole, so very pleasant surroundings. will be better in future after it has had some rainfall to turn the fairways back to green.
The greens though were excellent, having been hydrated.

Enjoyable round but …..

Enjoyed the round and made very welcome. The course is very flat and there os no water to negotiate. Easy walking and in good condition.. it’s a bit bland and featureless - up one way then down the next. Greens very good. A dog friendLy course - we had our black labs on leads attached to our trolleys and they both enjoyed the walk.

Unknown to us 10 out of the 18 greens were being repaired and temporary greens were put in place, which ruined our game, I wish we knew

Course in very good condition

The course was in very good condition given recent weather. The course itself was a bit repetitive with few memorable holes. Enjoyed it nevertheless

Needs signposting

This is a decent course for the beginner/intermediate. It's in good condition (some bunkers GUR).
The only negative is the holes need signposting. The 2-ball in front of me went to the wrong tee twice. I had to circle back. Luckily the regulars that day were nice and let me play through them......again.
