Wasn’t told the greens had been hollowed out

Paid full price and the greens had been hollowed so they weren’t really playable.

Good condition

The course was in good condition, although only the back 9 was in play due to course maintenance on the front nine. Would have been happy to play temporary greens on front 9.

Will go back as I like the course, but will check if 18 holes open first.

Having said that the greens were very good and fast and true.

Great value and a decent track

The weather was awful... but we played on regardless.

The greens flooded late on in the round but that didn’t dampen a really enjoyable round.

The 18th is a great hole, not just the hole itself but then the immediate opportunity to sample the hospitality in the club!

Great value course

3rd time playing this course and enjoyed it each time. Quite a long course with forgiving fairways at times and very well kept greens considering the green fees. Couple of practice nets chipping green and putting green to warm up on. Very long par 5s especially when they play into the wind. Well worth a visit

Little Gem

Absolutely loved this course today. At only £9 each due to a Hot Deals offer... what an absolute bargain it was. Well kept course. Decent greens and tee boxes. Open fairways. If I lived locally I’d be playing on this course again for sure. Needed the course map to follow the route to the next hole as it wasn’t always clear. Would highly recommend this golf course

WOW what a course!!!!!!!

I think the greens were built by Carlsberg. Probably the best I've played on. No matter what your handicap, this is a fantastic course. I'm a lazy bugger and this course is 24 minutes drive away from where I live and I'm so grateful I played there, I shall return very soon. THIS IS A GREAT COURSE WITH FANTASTIC GREENS, DON'T MISS OUT. Oh, forgot to mention the friendly staff. Thank you very much LIAM. You are a gent.

December golf and in very good condition

Only one green was slow with water, otherwise In excellent condition.
Pace of play was a problem with a few incredibly slow 2 balls.
The course could do with spacing the tee offs a little more / enforcing people tee off when they are meant to.
Also great value for money and a short game area and nets for a good warm up.

The greens reminded me of a bunker

Unfortunately ALL the greens were being repaired which meant the ball would bounce along the holes in the green and splash up the sand on them along the way. Some warning that the greens were in this state of repair would have been useful.
Also, 5 groups went off all within 15 minutes. The first pairing went of late, the 3 in front of us went off 5 minutes after our tee off time and were slow, and then we had two 1 balls behind us. 1 who bombarded us with balls for the first 3 holes even though we were waiting for the lads in front before he played through.
Disappointing although the course was still in good condition otherwise and for the price was still decent.

Better than average especially for the price

Great central location. A forgiving course on the whole but still managed to lose a few balls on the round.
For the price it was pleasantly surprising that there was a putting green, chipping area and driving range nets to get warmed up.
Greens were in good condition.
Bar looks incredibly dated but does some lovely pints.
