Scruffy

Half the greens were hollow tined , fairways hadn’t been cut in a while so there was no definition between fairway and rough.. Disappointing and not worth the money

Very enjoyable round on a Monday afternoon. Hardly anyone else out on the course.
Greens were a little grubby and rough, but fairways in great condition.

Poor greens & slow running

Played here a few times and usually it is in mint conditions and you don’t have to do much waiting around. Played on Friday on a day where it looked like they’ve overbooked their tees. Waiting ages on every tee with a queue in front and behind us. The greens were in awful conditions too, all bumpy and looked dead in a lot of patches, not what you’d expect from this course at all.

Great course, bad greens

The course layout is fantastic. The holes are challenging and exciting. However, the greens were the worst greens I’ve ever played. The ball bobbles and doesn’t hold its line, making it frustrating to hole putts.

Only play in summer

Played on Tuesday in high winds, the greens were not great and course needs attention. Worst we got stuck behind a social group so our two ball took 4 1/2 hours

Wouldn't Recommend.

Me and a pal booked here on a whim. We were meant to play on the 27th feb but on the day we tried multiple times to call the pro shop to check for any restrictions with no joy. So we traveled the hour journey to be told we couldn’t play as it was carry only! we didn’t have carry bags.

They rescheduled our round for the 6th which was great under the circumstances. But then we played! we got stuck behind 4 members who held up 4 groups one being a 3 ball a sole ( who we let play through on the 3rd) then two 2 balls us being one. The course was really bad in parts the green are poor quality to say it’s a championship course!

I won’t be wasting my time or money going back.

14 holes for the price of 18

On previous visits heron’s has proved a useful, inexpensive winter option, as so many courses are on winter greens, mats etc.

On this occasion however, nowhere on GolfNow did it say that four of the 18 holes were closed. We paid for something we didn’t receive. Buyers beware!

Course soggy but not a surprise given the time of year. Tees very forward, so very short course but lots of plugging balls in difficult winter sun meant more than a few lost balls.

11,12,13,16 all off limits

Play this course often, shame to find out on the 1st that hole 11,12,13 and 16 were off due to weather.

Was extremely wet out on the course.
