Good condition considering the weather of late

Only a handful of winter greens, all winter tees, not great but at this time of year its to be expected- if you are a first time player definitely take a card for the map on the back as it can be difficult to navigate from hole to hole. Great experience would definitely play again!

Considering the weather - still excellent condition

For the value you can’t really complain, but even if I could, I wouldn’t. The greens are in good condition, the fairways too and the winter tees aren’t dissimilar positions from the normal tees and aren’t artificial mats so it’s a thumbs up from me.
As with golf everywhere, speed of play can be an issue but that’s golfer rather than course dependent.

Great value for the money - and a nice course!

A generally flat course, but with many strangely undulating fairways which resembled waves on the sea frozen in time!
A good mix of short and long holes - with 2 of the par 5's way over 500 yards.
Considering it was late October, the course was in reasonable condition, except the bunkers had no decent sand in them - but not much they could do about that.
As I live in Sussex, I couldn't believe the price - much better value than anything in my area!
I would 100% recommend playing at this course and I would love to give it another go in the summer.

Great Course, all holes are interesting too

Great course for the price ( we paid 10 each on Saturday) and had a great experience. Found it a great course particularly as players getting back into the game after many years so its great practice. Only thing I found was the playing speed was super slow (around 4 hrs for a 2 ball) which was a little disappointing. For the price though I think its an absolute bargain and have booked to play again next week

Played the course in very wet conditions, fairways were in great condition, the grey had been spiked but were still good. Very forgiving course if you keep out of rough. Would definitely recommend

Good test, with great staff and exceptional value

I’ve played here a few times now and it’s a good test, with some really good holes and very challenging undulating fairways. The greens yesterday were poor (had just been tined) but it didn’t affect things too much. Liam (shop) could not be more helpful - great bloke.

Fantastic Course

played here earlier in the year as hot deal for 9 pound and it was great, played again today and although the greens has been fixed or tinned it was still very playable for 18 pound each a round, fairways in great condition and tee boxes where better then a certain "posh" club in Durham for 35 quid a head. 100% recommended this course and will.be back in a couple of weeks time

On another note the bar staff and club pro shop where very welcoming which you love to see on a course

Liam and all in the club were very helpful under these difficult conditions. The fairways were in decent condition & bunkers GUR ? -the greens yeah were bumpy with tining but hey ho.

Lovely Course

First time I’ve played here and will definitely return. Course was not too challenging and easy to get around. Not too long to walk between holes. Some nice little par three’s to keep you on your toes!

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.
