Lovely course

Second time playing here, course in lovely condition, greens are true and have a lovely speed to them. Would recommend this to anyone, just a little heads up some of the greens and tees are quiet close together so may have to wait on some holes... This wasn't a problem though during my round but could maybe be an issue during busy times.

Nice par 3s

Difficult to judge the quality of the course as it was October and we had a lot of rain last few days. Greens were very good for the time of year and the tee boxes were decent along with the fairways. The layout of the course is difficult to navigate and we got lost a few times. We even played the wrong hole and had to go back. This was due to lack of signs directing and also no hole number or details on the tee box of what hole your playing. Not sure if there in the process of updating the hole signage because it was just painted black. A simple hole number sticker would do for now so you know of your on the wrong hole. Would play the course again in the summer. Price was £23 which was is a bit expensive in my opinion compared to some of the deals out there on golf now and in the local area.

members

Played here a number of times this years, and every time the club members are difficult. I usually play on my own or with one other, the pace of play from the members and today “the club captain” is very frustrating. I understand they pay there membership fees and have just as much right to be there as anyone, but they are always very quick to knit pick with non members but they don’t follow there own club rules,
The course is brilliant just a word of warning members four balls will not allow you to pass but will ask you to move off the tee if there is queuing on any tee as they are members or “club captain”

A good test

Nelson is always fun to play, usually in good condition with friendly staff and good members.
Somewhere to go for a nice day out.
