Speed of play

Having paid £26 for a round we expected it to be a full round, we start at 4:44 and by 8:15 we’d only completed 14 holes. Waiting for 15 on 2 tee boxes, 6 people queuing up on one in 2 groups because of slow play wasn’t what I expected. Everything else was good.

Fab course

Played this course a couple of times recently and very impressed.

Lovely little putting and chipping area by the clubhouse to get some practice in. Lady in the pro shop was nice enough to let me go out a touch early with nobody infront of me for a few holes.

Course is in fabulous condition. Looks well looked after. Course is challenging but there are still chances to make a score. Big fan of holes 2, 6, 8 and 9 on the way out and then 10, 12, 13 and 16 on the way in.

If I did have one criticism it would be the layout over the final four holes. After plenty of different doglegs and challenges before, 15-18 feel very samey which is a bit of an underwhelming way to finish. Oh and the par 3 11th is too long if you get the wind in your face, I hit 3W and was still short!

Minor nitpicks though. Great course and will be back soon.

Enjoyable round

A simple but enjoyable golf course which has been excellently maintained. For me slightly overpriced but would happily play here again

Great value for money

We booked a twilight round of golf, and found the experience to be absolutely value for money.

Course was in good condition, greens and tee boxes very good for this time of year (clearly well watered).

Only grumble was pace of play. We got stuck behind the Thursday foursomes league who, despite only playing alternate shot, still managed to take 2hrs 25 to play 9 holes.

We had to chase down darkness and somewhat rush to make sure we made it round in time, but played the last three holes at great pace once they had (thankfully) shaken hands and finished their match on the 15th hole.

Will come back again, just not on a Thursday evening!

Member Course

This is a members course and at times I must say the members are not always welcoming which is probably why there is not too many on the golf course at times. The cloakrooms are locked to the outside visitors. The clubhouse bar staff only seem to serve members before guests. Overall though the course is excellent in the summer but a lot of the time in the winter quite a few holes get closed off.

We play this course a lot and it seems they discourage anyone joining rather than encouraging. This does not come from most of the members but the team in charge.

Course OK pace slow

2.5 hours for first 9 was ridiculous with 4 groups on some holes. Members genuinely surprised. Back 9 was 1.5 hours, thankfully.
