Having lived literally a mile away from this course for 13 years and never played it today I had my first round. I was,quite surprised how big the fairways were, large sweeping wide fairways with lovely tree lines. Managed to get in front of a 3 ball on hole 3 and got round in under 3 hours. Chap in pro-shop was nice and friendly will 100% be back.
Greens were class especially after 2 days of constant rain. Not the longest course but some tough tee shots which require thought. Would definitely recommend and can't go wrong for the price.
Wow! Above all expectations - what a gem.
First time playing and I was very impressed.
Had the course to myself (a little bit of rain had encouraged others to bail on their rounds) which was delightful.
You forget you are in a city and feel like you are out in the countryside. I had a deer join me on a few holes, a woodpecker, squirrels and geese knocking around too.
The course is flat but well placed bunkers and doglegs mean you can’t just hit drivers off all the tee boxes.
The condition of the course was excellent despite rain and winter on the way.
Great course spoilt by a few members
A good experience with the only bad point being the 4 ball ahead of our 2 ball who were determined not to let us play through. A member said they were notorious, really believe clubs need to do more to address this.
Friendly welcome and advice at the clubhouse. Clubhouse was one of the best ive visited outside of top championship courses. As for the course itself it was in top condition and it was hard to believe you were not out in the middle of the country. Will return but if we end up behind the same 4 ball I doubt a third visit would be on the cards.

As the course has one in its iconic 14th I have to say this course is a "wee gem". Originally designed by Harry Vardon this is a good track with some testing approach shots into a more classical feel than the modern courses we are given today.
I would 100% be happy to be a member of this club because it has enough of a challenge to make it different every time you play it. Par 5's that give you a chance, par 3's that test and are very different to each other and a range of par 4's that do the same.
Thoroughly enjoyed the day and finding an updated, modern bar/restaurant was a joy. Tremendous decor and feel in the place supported by lovely staff. I liked it so much I became a social member!
Great day of golf in lively surroundings, well worth a game!
Great club house
First time I’ve played here the greens were in excellent condition some of the tee boxes could have been a bit more looked after weeds and long grass on the sides.
No real signature hole on the course and a bit .repetitive. Club house has just been refurbished to an excellent standard.
One of the best
Played many local courses and I would place this course as one of the best.
The new clubhouse is fabulous and so friendly we will be back.
A hidden gem
Fantastic greens and fairways. A great mix of holes and very enjoyable. Well worth the money
Great greens but a Slow round !
Course was in good nick, the greens were excellent despite the dry hot weather. .... but it was such a slow round, don’t play on a Friday !
The course was in great condition as you would expect at this time of year. The reason I gave 4* is due to the greens being heavily sanded and we were not informed. Will have to return when greens are in correct condition.
Everyone we met was very friendly and welcoming from Pro to members.
