It Should be 5 stars all round
The only flaw and I am sure in the drier months isn’t a flaw is the conditions of the fairways after bad weather. The fairyways were so water logged attempting to Hit the ball off them resulted in either being covered in mad or the ball not travelling very far.
I'll start by saying that I have played here many times and have always found it to be a great course and great value.
That said, I played yesterday and was shocked at the state of the course. It was a mud bath and virtually unplayable.
I'm amazed they allowed the course to be open, to be honest.
The greens were in very good condition but Christ knows how you are supposed to get to them with how wet and sludgdy the fairways were. Even fairway woods were digging down.
To give you an idea, when I arrived I was told it was carry only. No trolley even with hedgehogs,
I know it has been raining but even so......
On the plus side, I only paid a tenner but had had enough by 15 and walked off coated in mud.
Can’t do much about the weather, but what you can do is try to protect the fairways, paths.. anywhere on the course! Was like playing through a ploughed field at times, which made for an eventful yet disappointing round.
Shame because the layout and the grassy knolls are a really striking look. Could be great with better management.
Great parkland course with good views. Greens quite fast and firm. Easy for the ball to bounce through.particularly with a tail wind - must work on my back spin!
Due to covid restrictions the bunkers are best avoided. Sometimes difficult to find your ball in the rough and if goes in the deep rough don't bother to try.
Finally be careful in the car park there are some deep potholes.
A good find
Really enjoyed course, very friendly.
Green quite tricky but all in all good value .
This course is fast becoming my favourite. Beautiful fairways and greens and easy on the pocket! Planning a return very soon
Etiquette Non Existent
There were SO many groups on the course it was clear that people just turned up and played without booking (members?!). We had a group tee off 2 mins before our tee time. It made the pace of play horrendous and as we all know waiting around to play shots is not a thing golfers enjoy., Not only that. a group of 4 just joined in at the 10th in front of us which killed the pace of play even more. Then a ball landed in between us whilst waiting on a tee without anyone shouting - dangerous! Add to that each green seemed to have about 10-20 pitch marks not repaired made it feel like it was a course not well kept. Guess you get what you pay for?! Would rather pay £20 and go elsewhere next time.
Poor pace of play
Pace of play ruined what would of been a nice round at the weekend. Waiting on every shot from hole 3. Wouldn’t play again in anything other than a 4 ball at the weekend
Interesting course pleasent and varied holes.
A course of two halves. Front nine the easier of the two.
Good value for money. My only small criticism is that the course and tees were very dry and hard desperately needed water. It was difficult to get tees into the ground on most of the holes. But this did not takeaway the fact that we had a enjoyable round of golf here and would definitely return again.
