Enjoyable round

First time played this course in over 20 years (back when it was only 9 holes). Playing with my son we both enjoyed the course and found the greens to be both challenging and in great condition for the time of year. Layout is good and not too hilly, unlike a few Cornish courses we’ve played recently. Nice to see some water hazards which again seem in somewhat short supply at other local courses. It needs time to mature, yes, but still gives a lot of enjoyment.

Would have asked for a refund

Played on Aug Bank Hol Monday with early tee time.
The layout of the course at times is confusing, fairways in good condition, but the tee boxes were the WORST I have ever encountered, even park pitch and putt were in better condition. It was impossible to Putt on the Greens as they had been HEAVILY dressed.
All in all it was very poor value for money, with the only redeeming features being the fairways and the views, I was seriously tempted to ask for a refund.

Good holiday golf

Not too difficult off the yellow tees, but the rough is quite thick so it's quite hard to get any distance if the ball is sat down. Nice views, good for a holiday round at a fair price.

Merlin

The course is clearly new and hasn’t had time to settle but unfortunately I felt it wasn’t very well maintained. The fairways weren’t cut and defined and the greens inconsistent.
There are a couple of interesting holes but generally straightforward and providing you hit straight very low scoring.

Great course

This was a great course very well looked after. My missus and I played a round on Friday afternoon and it was very quiet. The course was immaculate and quite challenging, will definitely play here on our return
