So slow we had to walk off after 16 holes.

Never seen a golf course as busy in my life. Mega slow play, standing on the tea upwards of 10 minutes and had to walk off after 16 holes due to horrendous slow play.

Great course

Beautiful weather and a fantastic course made for an enjoyable, if somewhat slow, round of golf. A few interesting and challenging holes tested us and made up for a few short par 4’s which are easy to par and even birdie. The small driving range and practice area looks good but the best feature was the water fountain on the 13th, boy were we glad of that. Just wish the local 4 ball has let the two of us through at the appropriate time. Will be back.

Greens were in perfect condition even though it’s been dry for the last month in the northeast for a nice change

great course -unfriendly members

enjoyed the course which was in great condition ,fast greens and the odd slow one to catch you out -well kept course and greenkeepers very friendly-however as with previous visits to this course the members were not accommodating and looked down upon us -this is one of the courses to avoid due to lack of respect to visiting parties from some but not all members apart from that we had a great game of golf
