Friendly people, quirky course

played on a gorgeous autumn day.
Found it difficult at times to see the flags as they were a bit faded and most were set against a background of trees and were in shade.
The layout was interesting and occasionally confusing as to the next tee direction.
The greens were small but receptive, the bunkers immaculately kept.
Members were really friendly.
Definitely worth the money!

Interesting short course

Great short 9 hole course with tree lined fairways.
Interesting approach challenges.

Course was quiet and was in good shape.

Could do with a more detailed course map and more 'next hole' signage. The bar was closed at then end of our round - shame as we would have had a few shandies!

Great little hidden gem

I have only played this course twice as a twig light golfer but I love it. There are so many quirky things to this course that test you as a golfer but also give you an awesome experience.

The third hole is a true highlight teeing off from a high perch up in the trees and dropping down to the pin below.

But it is almost unfair to pick that out as nearly all the holes have a certain character to them. (Except the 2nd - it seems to be my nemesis and my drives never land on the fairway).

Good course let down by poor maintenance

We lost several balls in what was supposed to be light rough just off the fairway. The light rough was covered in lots of grass clippings. And it was dense and not chopped down low enough. A couple of times, we knew exactly where the ball was but still couldn't find it in the grass.

We don't expect much for the low price but this was frustrating.

Apart from that, it's a great course for the cost.

perfect weather

great round with great weather. not another golfer on the course. As usual just did 9 holes which i think should be offered for £10, or at least a discount for over 65's. its a shame i have to wait until twilight to play , and even then its £15. A nine hole course should offer a nine hole price .
Otherwise all good.

What a gem

Please play this course, what a beauty. It’s an hour drive for us but we’ll with it. I rated staff down because we didn’t actually see any to review as you just park up and play. The 3rd hole is a stunner. Please everyone go play this course

Lovely, but spoiled by members

Was asked on 3 separate occasions by members if we paid our geen fees, at this point it becomes annoying

With Respect, you turned up at a different time to your allotted booking, so the members were uncertain why you were on the course. Many of the members are volunteer marshals and have the booking details to hand on their mobile phone.

Decent little course with some fun holes

This is a 9 holer with a few extra tee boxes but it's good fun, has some very nice holes and blends in wonderfully with the woods around it.

Good course, snooty locals.

Really nice course but the locals made it pretty clear they don't like the fact their course is on Golf Now if they don't want my money then take your course off the site. We we're stuck behind a 4ball of locals who all played to a very low standard and refused to let us play through slowing down the speed of play for lots of other golfers. I wouldn't recommend this course based on the local's behaviour.
