Decent course with good greens

Good challenging and varying holes, from short par 4’s but long par 5’s this course brings a variety of challenges and obstacles to ensure you execute your shots with thought and vision

Superb greens

Played on Thursday 22nd April, booked through Golf Now for 1.17pm. .....guys in the shop really pleasant and accommodating. ....pace of play was good even though we as a 3 ball had a four ball in front, but other than the obvious hold ups, nothing bad. The course is in great nick and and great test when the wind blows...(which is and ways! !!) The greens and ways re fantastic, tight cut, fast with subtle breaks, frustrating as he'll but a joy to chip to and putt on, all in all and great day was had by andll. ...will be back.

Golf with a Snorkel

The course shouldn't have been open, in 23 years of playing golf I've never seen anything like it. Couldn't get to 8th Tee and called it a day. Attitude of staff very poor.

Like pulling teeth

4 hours to play 13 holes ended up walking off, No one checking people teeing off we teed off at our time men’s to have 15 minutes till next group soon as we took our 2nd shot players teeing off, after 8 holes we were counting 4 groups on a hole 2 on the tee one on the green and one the fairway, four balls ahead of us who were clearly a lower standard not letting anyone through a waste of 30 quid won’t be going there again

Perfect weather
Used cart

Fairways sodden and greens severely pitch-marked

I played here twice over two days. The first day was sunny with no wind; the second was overcast with occasional light showers.
But it was the condition of the course that was poor. I only saw one ground staff on each day, and perhaps that's the reason. No only were the fairways sodden and the greens severely pitch-marked, there were empty beer bottles and cans all littering several tee areas, and many bunkers were overgrown and clearly unmaintained.
Why don't golf clubs retain litter bins? What (covid-19) risk is there - players simply throw away their litter and grounds staff removed the litter bags with gloved hands? Rant over.
