Lovely relaxed course
Rough now grown long, so off the fairway = lost ball
Links course - 5 Lakes
Really enjoyed my round. It is very flat but still maintained interest. Rewarded straight drives and in very good condition. Will definitely be playing again.
It is lovely to have a course with no-one chasing you and no-one holding you up.
It was cold though!
No good on a windy day
To be expected for a links-type course but extremely difficult to play in windy weather. Front 9 is very samey with little variety to holes which got a bit tedious.
For the start of November the course was okay but nothing to write home about
I would have been happier if I had been told that the course was closed! With the recent weather it should be. Access to tee boxes and fairways ankle deep in mud & water. Only played 9 of 18 holes paid for. What a rip-off!!
Very wet Course
The Course was very wet in places , the greens are not in good condition , the price we paid was very low but have paid the same and played excellent courses , this was the Links course , I don't know what the Lakes course is like , some more signs up for direction to the next tee would be helpful on some of the holes
Arrived at club house . Could not have been more friendly. Walked to 1st tee 1st hole looked lovely and couldn't see a sole on the course. Greens fantastic for December .All 18 holes looked great . Did help i played really well but loved the whole course definitely going back
Good value round of golf
At £12 a round you can't expect to play a top quality course. However the greens are well kept, bunkers are nice, with wide open fairways which are inviting to hit. My biggest criticism is that the fairway grass is too long and not easy to distinguish between rough and fairway on certain holes. Overall a nice course for the money.
Five lakes links course
Been to this course now 3 times in the past 6 months and each time it has been in great condition , greens are well kept and will hold if being attacked from the fairways , pace of the round at under 4 hours was good with no hold ups at all - easy walking and no blind shots make this a layout I would suggest to all levels of player. Whilst short by today's standards it does require thinking about position for that all important shot into the small greens,, overall very enjoyable and will return soon
Great value, decent course
The Links Course is ideal for those who have a wayward drive like I do, it's open and well kept and great value for money.
Forgiving course off the tee
Beginner friendly course. No great variation between holes or length from tee to greens. Tee boxes and greens were poor. Greens had been punctured and were grainy and tees needed a trim and seeding in places. Some tricky target greens to hit, particularly given firmness and condition. Otherwise, fair value for a weekend round.
inland links needs wind.
it started as an easy course, but after a while it became more demanding. But the wind was not that strong to make the course difficult, So we had a nice walk and a good score.
