Great course

We played the Dewlaw and Douglas, both 9 holes are very good, greens in excellent condition and very consistent. Stay out of the rough, it’s absolutely savage!

Used cart

The course was very quiet and was in excellent condition for the time of year. There could be more markers to identify the next tee box, and more visible range markers, but overall a lovely course to play. Will definitely play here again.

Walked

Joanne & Bob Matfin

Returning to golf after 4 yrs--so i needed a easy walking course , Matfen ideal and having played here many times it was good to see progress of the course itself . My caddie (the wife) again proved to be a better putter than me.
Played Dewlar--across the road then Douglas. Both were fine but the ground was like walking on Pease pudding .
Staff great-they always are ! ..
Yes a good day & suprised i got round 18 holes especially with new clubs--many thanks Matfen from a Matfin

DO NOT BOOK HERE

Absolutely terrible customer service. Got a phone call saying two of the courses where closed due to water logging and told would have to play 9 holes only and could repeat if wanted. Told no refunds as course still open for play?! No offer of a refund or to rebook due to weather conditions.
