Matfen Hall

Really nice course, lovely layout, some great holes. A fair course to play. Could benefit from some extra bins around the course but this is in no way a criticism

Nice day out

The course is in excellent condition, firm fairways and beautiful greens. The club house is welcoming but the prices seem to be the same as the hotel.Other than that a great place for game.

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!
