I enjoy the round. The course has some challenging holes and is generally in good condition. The pro shop is well equipped and the staff are very friendly
Great condition but slow play
The course was in great condition and playing really well. Unfortunately there was 2 four balls that were extremely slow in front of us and seemed to take forever, we could not wait and had to skip 3 holes just to finish within 5 hours, not what you expect when you come to a course that offers visitor play. The staff in the office didn’t seem bothered by this also and offered no way of refunding or exchange, even to go back out on the front nine would have been better than nothing.
Nice layout, bar staff lovely, course and fella in pro shop not so lovely
Great layout. However greens are woeful. For £25 you can get so much better for your money locally.
Bar staff fantastic and so happy to help. However the fella in the pro shop must of had a rough night. Rude , abrupt, bit of a power trip if you ask me . Will not be returning and I wonder if this place will still be ope. In 2-3 years time. Needs investment and fast
Fabulous course, badly managed
Possibly the best laid out course in the area but the condition and presentation of the course is very very poor. Tee’s poor, fairways poor and the greens are horrendous.
Sad part is the course itself is superbly laid out. It’s pretty clear they could do with investment and that is evident as soon as you leave the main road. The whole thing looks tired. I’ve played there relatively often over the years and always return in the hope that something has improved but sadly it still appears in decline. Staff are friendly and the cost of a round is very reasonable and it’s a very pleasant place to play but don’t get your expectations too high.
Beautiful scenic golf course
Beautiful golf course. Quite hilly set in a scenic countryside setting. Very relaxing as no noise of roads, etc. I play off 12 and I found the course reasonably difficult although I wasn’t playing my best. But although I didn’t have a great game I thoroughly enjoyed my day as every single hole is stunning. This was my first visit and I look forward to returning.
Avoid you have been warned it’s absolutely disgusting condition we go back every 3?months hoping for the tees fairways greens to be improved sick of being disappointed won’t ever go back no excuses after a 4 months lockdown
What happened to the green keeper
I have played this course a few times over the years and never been so disappointed with the greens .as I was Saturday. No warning from staff when collecting score card .the only reason for such poor greens ,most be they sacked the green keeper and he has took revenge .won't be returning in a hurry .shame as is a lovely course
Course review 25/04
The golf course was great to play yesturday, the fairways seemed to be in particularly good condition with lots of bounce from the dry weather. The only thing that lets this course down is the greens, the are very Sandy and always have holes punched him then for water draining. The sand makes it extremely difficult to put and some holes it was like putting on concrete there was no grass there at all.
Greens let the course down
I have given course conditions a 3 out of 5. The course in general was in good condition however the greens were poor. Putting was a game of luck. We were warned when we started that the greens weren't in the best condition,. Based on that warning and the condition of the rest of the course, I would put this down to Covid rather than a regular problem.
I would play here again once the greens are in a better state, which with time I'm sure they will be
Interesting layout presenting a good challenge, however, greens still need work.
I played in the morning in beautiful sunshine and perfect weather conditions. The course has varying levels of difficulty of holes presenting a good challenge for any golfer.
The fairways were in great condition considering the current climate, however, if inaccurate it will be very difficult to locate your ball or you will have a terrible lie due to the many many ruts of old trees and holes from wildlife. Not really the courses fault - More a victim to its location in a heavily wooded area.
Every green still needs a lot of work with one currently under repair and been replaced with a tiny patch which wasn’t worth playing on. However, given the current global climate and the price paid, this is to be expected.
Overall an enjoyable experience with excellent value for money (£25), which is probably reflective of the greens current condition and definitely a course I will come back to play again as no doubt the greens will only get better.
Layout great potential but post lockdown needs a lot of work and most greens suffering disease. A good test of golf. Ps needs sign for temp green on long par 5 on tee so you are aware before you start.
Done a lot of work on drainage and tree trimming /removing allowing a lot more light onto the course. Looks good greens are getting there now a nice walk and course to play. I’m not the most accurate of drivers and there are several fairways that are more forgiving but a few “tests” also. Enjoyable round, Will definitely play again and recommend as I always have. Love playing here.
Great little course slightly out the way and the green wasn’t in the best nick but this course was brilliant, signs at the tee box with some great information on every course should have these.
