Great value for money

Fairways were very dry, meaning the ball often went a long way from where it pitched (sometimes good, sometimes bad), and the greens were also very firm meaning you had to pitch well before if you wanted the ball to stay on the green.

But overall for a tenner you can't really go wrong.

Its playable but could be better

No paths for the buggy and the entire course is so bumpy everywhere that it's much better to just walk it I think. The setting is nice and conditions fine. Too many dog walkers and no signs anywhere so the layout is confusing and slow.

It's okay but nothing special

Too many dog walkers and balls flying everywhere and the pace of play wasn't really very quick. Greens are nice and fairways in good nick for a public course it's not too shabby. Layout is a bit tight in places but some interesting holes. Just got fed up with dog walkers that's all who really don't care less about golfers. very ignorant lot

Great course

Set off 20 minutes early Great course pace no problem let though by a members 4 ball after 3 holes only one tidy little thing a few more signs with direction to the next tee would be helpful. You must keep your eyes peeled as there where a lot of dog walkers and joggers but will definitely be playing again

Ridiculous Value for Money

For only a £13 green fee and considering it is a publicly owned course, the standard of the course was really very good. The fairways, tee boxes and greens were all looking close to their best, albeit the latter were quite slow. Only negatives (very picky) is the lack of ‘clubhouse’ and the frequent dog walkers and members of the public, whom some didn’t seem to realise it was an active course at times!

Having said that, I had a great day, and will definitely be returning

Great Value

First time playing this course and very enjoyable. Greens were excellent and fairways good. A couple of tee boxes were a bit bare but overall the course was in good condition. Not a long course but some nice dogleg holes. Great value at only £14! Only drawback was the number of dog walkers and other members of the public wandering around the course. I would definitely play there again.

It's always beautiful in the first

Really like playing here, always have. Much better greens than many clubs. Especially good for the money. Just look out for all the public walking around.

Good Simple Course

Nice little course.
Holes are quite easy as long as you hit it straight
A lot of hackers on the course but very friendly and many waved me through with no issues.
Would recommend for high and mid handicappers
