Fantastic greens

First time playing this course, the greens were in excellent condition and ran very true. The course is a bit condensed with several tee boxes right next to greens and several blind shots making it tricky to know if it was clear to play but still an enjoyable round.

The Par 3s are excellent, framed really well

Great visit

This course is really good , good layout , some great holes , quirky and interesting is how I'd describe it. It's not long but long enough to keep you interested . Theres no long walks from green to tee and apart from 2 steep hills it's not a difficult walk . The condition of the course was great and very tidy . Good greens with plenty of slopes .

Thoroughly enjoyable course

Had a really enjoyable winter round, the course was in very good order, being on a hill it drains well. Every hole is unique, the course is challenging but sensible designed so that high handicap golfers can enjoy their round. Will definitely be back

Cold weather
Walked

Great all weather course

Played the course for the first time at the end of January, Have to say this is probably one of the best winter courses in the North west apart from the ones near the coast obviously..
The fairways were very firm despite the time of year and they have an almost links feel to them, the land is very natural and the course is not over sculpted or manicured which personally I prefer..
It plays fairly easy walking whilst carrying despite being built on a hill..
Greens were not the quickest but I would expect they would be fantastic in Summer with the dry weather and with hard fairways too the course would be even better.
Would not hesitate to visit again certainly for the price we paid it was a bargain, didn't go in the clubhouse but the practice facilities were also excellent.

Great course

Great course, lovely greens and fairways. Very good value for money. We played on a hot sunny day so the hot weather did zap all the energy and our cold drinks became warm despite being in the freezer pack in my bag and there was no where we could replenish our drinks so we were a little thirsty at the end. So make sure you take enough fluids and ice packs if you can. A lovely course though and we’ll worth a visit.
