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.

Nice first time out

Very decent course.
A few repetitive holes that are just long and straight but with undulating fairways, you still had work to do.
Will definitely play here again!

Slow play

Second time here within a week, course is nice but both time been held up by a very slow fourball who won’t let people through even though I’m a single player. Hard to get 18 in after work with people like this ahead of you

Excellent value for money

This course is excellent value for money and an enjoyable course to play. Upon arrival staff were very friendly and said that the course was quiet so just to tee off whenever we were ready. The course had a lovely relaxed atmosphere and is a brilliant course for beginners as the fairways are wide and they are hilly giving you some extra yards on your drives. Overall great course considering the price for a round of golf and it is maintained well.
