Lovely course, back 9 is a belter. Front 9 fairly standard parkland. Course in great condition, and lovely family feel. Will definitely be back!
Suffering from lack of rain
Cracks on the fairway, bare patches thoughout. Greens hard and recently worked on so made oputting across the green difficult. Hopefully in a couple of weeks green will have recovered and be very good but need watering as well. Tees had plenty of grass and rotated enough.
Course was in fairly good condition , greens have been improved but tee boxes need attention and need to have course info on them which would help
Very Enjoyable Course.
Despite being a sub 6000 yard track, the course has been layed out in a way where there are still a number of 400+ yard par 4s. Of course there are reachable par 4s but due to quite small greens it is often better to lay up. Greens weren't in very good condition due to recently being airrated with grooves so ready putts was impossible, once they have some rain and sun they will be back and much better. The course has been suffering with hard frosts and snow so needs a run of good weather to bring it back to its best.
You need to map to find your way around, it's not obvious where the next hole is on a number of occasions, sign posting should be added to improve the experience.
A brave golfer would attack the 18th green, get it wrong and you will either smash a clubhouse window or hammer it too long and you would hit your fellow golfers enjoying a drink on the terrace -about 20 yards from the middle of the green!! Needless to say the fear got the better of me and I duffed my approach!
Woudl recommend this course and look forward to going back in a few weeks when the greens have improved.
Course needs some attention
Stunning location and views on this undulating course. Not the longest but tight in places so demands accuracy off the tee.
Course needs some attention - greens were rock hard, uneven and very hard to stop a wedge on. Played more like a links course. Fairways had plenty of unrepaired divots, as did the tees.
None of the tees had yardage or the hole numbers marked so install an app or use a GPS watch to avoid guesswork,
A tranquil course
A nice Round of golf ,some tricky holes ,everyone was very polite ,
The course is very tranquil and quiet ,I arrived late but the pro was understanding and let me play ,
The only problem with this course is that the Tee`s aren`t numbered
Thank you for a nice round of golf ,Greens and fairways were perfect
Playing really well
Greens at summer pace. Fairways running close to summer conditions - good run-on. Recent dry weather has helped. During Covid lockdown new hard surfaces have been installed from tees to fairways - a great improvement which will stop mud, wear and tear when it gets wetter. A well-maintained course which should not be missed at this time of year.
Lovely setting and views with attractive clubhouse. Very friendly and helpful staff member.
Despite not playing very well I enjoyed this course. It played longer than the yardage suggests as very hilly in places. Keep fit for Cardiac Hill, aptly named I should add.
There are opportunities to make birdies when the greens are softer but were very firm and quick so difficult to hold the ball on the green. In defence, I'm not Dustin Johnson and we've had a long dry spell and windy of late so the greens have dried out. Extra watering please Mr Groundsman !!!
Due to Covid 19, I am unable to comment too much on facilities regards the clubhouse but a nice seating area at the back overlooks the 18th green and putting practice area. A cold beer after would have been perfect with a view across the course.
However, there is extra car parking a short walk away when the main is full. Buggies available and a net practice area between the shop and 1st tee to loosen up.
Will definitely come again, if only for that beer !
A nice spring day and the course looked great although the greens had recently been treated but putted well.
An interesting course with some surprises despite being relatively short.
Well worth a look and i would certainly be back.
Too many temporary greens
Played the course a few years ago , so I thought I would give it a go again. Weather was abysmal but I have never played a course with so many temporary greens. There were no signs saying which hole was which or where they were located, so I was playing off memory. The course is straddled by a road with holes 1 to 7 one side and 8 to 18 on the other, you would need to be a genius to work out what hole was which if you were a first time visitor...
Enjoyable round in a beautiful setting
A lovely course. The hills of the North Downs make for a decent workout and create some challenging holes. Really enjoyed this outing and highly recommend the course. Beautiful setting and a really fun round.
