A very wet course
Unfortunately the course was very busy, day before lockdown 2 didn't help and the tees were mats, which gives some idea of how wet the course is.
The greens had been hollow tined, I think a month too late, as they were very un even ad some were probably not fit to play.
However the course has some very testing holes and the weather was great.
It was raining heavily when I arrived, but was determined to play. I was joined by a very friendly member and we completed the round. We got lucky with the weather easing throughout the round. The condition was fantastic, the tee boxes, fairways and greens were excellent. Its a very fair test for all golfing abilities, and I will definitely be returning. Great price and friendly members and shop staff
Great value round of golf
I was fortunate to play on a lovely sunny day - always a bonus. Course provides an easy start with a short par 4 opening hole (4 iron/PW) followed by a short par 3 - so 2 or3 full shots to get your swing going. Easy walking for the most part with no serious uphills to navigate.
Very pleasant track, Fairways and greens in great condition. Great value for money via GolfNow. Somewhat spoiled scenically by the large voltage electricity pylons running straight through the middle of the course but lots to like on this course with a few noteworthy holes (Old Swampy index 1 is a beaut).
Unfortunately the killer of all fun on a course is slow play. We were a 3 ball of average golfers, but stuck behind a 4 ball who took very long to complete their round. It took us 4 and a half hours to complete our round.
