Friendly Course

Great course, friendly staff and members. Quite an easy forgiving course with 6 par 3’s 4 of which are very short. Took exactly 3 hours for our 2 ball to play the round and we tee’d off at 11am. Great value for money, worth a visit.

Friendly taxing course

The course is in reasonable condition. The greens were OK but not excellent The signage on the course is not good in places so some green to tee transfers can be tricky The staff are friendly and helpful and there is plenty of car park spaces. Definitely worth a visit.

Very enjoyable

We had an excellent time around this very enjoyable parkland course. A good length, around 6000 yds off the yellow tees, and with a good mix of holes. 6 par 3's, 3 x par 5's, a nice antidote to ever lengthening courses. The mix of lengths kept the round interesting throughout. The greens have some testing slopes but they ran true and at a good pace. They were fun to putt on.

Accuracy off the tee was important, when isn't it?, as the semi made finding your ball difficult. My one criticism would be that was slightly too long as it slowed down play as we looked for balls only just off the fairway. You had to be directly over your ball to find it.

Clubhouse was old school but friendly and pricing was very reasonable. All in all, I will go back and play here again. I would happily recommend it to others.

Nice course in good condition, it was wet when we played so looking forward to playing again in the dry.
A note to all golf clubs really, would be to have a single persons buggy hire at £20 as opposed to full hire at £25 which 2 people can do.
