Lovely course

We played this course for the first time and what a pleasant surprise! A stunning course in the city with enough hazards and undulating greens to make it a challenging but enjoyable round of golf

Gem of a course

Well worth the £40. It's a little oasis hidden in what is pretty much the city. Fairways were lush, greens ran consistently even on the higher holes. Staff very nice, and the course just looks great some nice memorial benches dotted about. Some of the holes are abit hard to find the right tee box and three holes on my Garmin came up as something different, looks like they are or have been changing the layout but I might just need to update my GPS.
Nice variety of long and short holes making it a scoreable course but one you need to think about with some strategic bunkers.
Will be coming back for sure.

I've been exploring local courses for potential membership and this is at the top of my list, lots of variations of holes to keep you interested and the greens in fantastic condition for this time of year.

Very good course in excellent condition for time of year. Will be going back in summer. Could do with a few more signs on new layout around holes 11 to 13 as we ended up on 14th tee, thanks to the members who help us back on track.

The course is lovely and the greens well looked after. Got lost a couple of times it would help if there were a few more signs telling you where the next hole is. Couldn’t play the 11th or 13th due to these being new holes in development but what I saw of them they look like they will be great to play once finished, will definitely play this course again once the work is all finished

Bad experience

Due to rain before round, the course was empty but the Pro made us wait till our exact tee off time and had linked us up with another two ball,. If we wanted to play a four ball we would of booked a four ball!! Won’t be playing this course again.
