Cracking course

Played in a charity day today and the course is in really good condition. Well maintained. Definitely play again. Reviews below about playing in a bog are expected in march as it rains a lot up here.

Swamp

Worst conditions I've played in. Boggy and long grassed fairways on every hole. Tee boxes were a joke.
Shame because the greens were nice and in good condition

Swamp golf

Played the course many times and a former member, however, the course was severely waterlogged and almost unplayable. Played 18 just, course should of been closed,. Expensive course to play as a one off, unjustified for this particular course. Greens were terrible which is not normally the case

Very muddy

As a whole the course was very wet and muddy, including the tee areas and the fairways. I lost several balls in the middle of the fairway and around greens, probably plugged deep in the mud... Frustrating. Many temporary greens, especially on the back nine, which is understandable given the time of the year.
The course layout is not bad, though no really any outstanding holes. the course is rather flat so probably easy to walk when in dries up (hard work in the mud today).

Note this is the first time I play this course, or any course in the Newcastle area. So can't compare with other courses nearby yet. I just moved to the area an looking for a club to become a member. I will probably come back later in the season to give this course another go under better circumstances. For now it hasn't made my shortlist.

Boggy

I had been warned that this course has drainage problems and so it proved to be. I appreciate there had been rain 2 days earlier but the fairways and tees were just mudbaths. Nearly every ball plugged which was very frustrating. The sand in the bunkers was like concrete. The only plus point was the greens were really good.

Charging Full Price for Winter Greens is a bit much!

No mention of winter greens prior to booking I’m afraid. Weather has been challenging so understandable, however being charged full price and not making people aware prior to booking is very poor.

Straight shots required

Very tight tee shots on most holes, no room for left or right. Nice greens mostly but last couple holes looked like birds had just been on and been picking at it. Overall enjoyed it but don’t think will be back as playing partners lost too many balls haha
