Fair practice course.

A honest review.... Think there are some harsh review of the course that are missing context. I will start and say the course is rough, however at £5 for 9 holes it's a bargain and much better suited to the high handicapper, a general practice or someone getting into golf. Not a high standard competition golf as I think some expect.

I played a Saturday 9.20 tee off time in June 21. Cool days with little rian over the last 3-4 days, so probably had the course in good stead.

The biggest let down were the tee off greens, so rough and in poor condition. The fairways generally where fair and I didn't have a poor lie all game, that said in heavy rain I can imagine it will get boggy in some spots, think playing with common sense to get free relief would. Putting greens could have been cut, super slow but not unplayable.

Markers on the course are poor, from tee box, signage, markers, hazards, gur (none).... Not un playable but needs the player to have some common sense.

As for public, yeah I can imagine it will get busy with lots of shots over public paths, I had it good the time I played but later afternoon might be more busy. That said holes 4 - 7 where basically private.

I'd support the course, have a play but might need to be sensible and adapt the game (make some local rules on hoof) around the course, so yeah not a comp course but a good learner/practice/friendly game course.

Needs work

Firstly, for the money ( £5 for 9 holes)
You can’t argue. It’s a great layout with some testing holes due to the streams and trees that encroach the fairways. The only grumble is the greens and fairways need a lot of work to get them into tip top shape.
When we played the pace was very slow due to a couple of groups of “1st timers” being in front of us

AVOID

This is without doubt THE WORST course I have ever played. Even at £5 per round. I wouldn’t play here again if someone paid me!

The fact it is labelled a golf course Is ridiculous. It’s fields with holes cut in the ground with flags in. Fairways are just like the rough and greens? Do they even exist here?! Grass longer than a standard fairway. Tee boxes?! Just piles of worm mud. Many of the holes have huge boggy patches in the centre of the fairways. Honestly I cannot wrote a review bad enough for this place!

No kids this time

Better to play here midweek as there is not much public about walking across the course. A few holes have very boggy fairways and is just not practical to play golf on

Very boggy

The course was VERY BOGGY and in desperate need of some drainage. Wouldn’t recommend this course unless it had been dry for weeks beforehand

Don’t bother

Probably the worse course I’ve ever played. Course was in terrible condition with one of the fairways like a swamp which smelled like manure. Save your money and don’t bother

Poor drainage, the greens are not maintained, the fairways are like the first cut. Red or Yellow tees are not easily identifiable. This would be a lovely 9 holes if it was maintained. Its in such a poor state that l feel it is the worst course l have ever played on.

Open to the public

This course is very open to the public on all holes. I passed numerous groups of teenagers during my round and the last hole was just pathetic. There were approx 30 teenagers on the fairway which made the hole unplayable and I had to pick my ball up to save grace. Did not expect this at all but I now understand why the price for play is low. The course condition was terrible too, big dirt patches in the middle of fairways and the greens were awful. As standards go this is the worst course I have ever played at and the only reason for that is the complete lack of maintenance and policing from the owners/council. If you just want to waste your time walking around this course then it’s for you, if not and you are taking it serious and aiming to improve, I wouldn’t even look at it, disgusting and disrespectful to the golfing world

Really poor

The fairways were like a bogs, greens were incredibly bumpy. There were hundreds of teenagers and families on the fairways making it impossible to play your shot safely.

Avoid, it’s a disgrace

I’ve played this course on and off for around 20 years and it hasn’t improved, always very boggy. Today’s play was especially bad! Fairways not cut. So balls don’t role, greens not maintained well. Bunkers are solid so unplayable. Played my last game there
