Great October Golf

Stunning setting, weather was really nice, course looked immaculate. Standard Sunday afternoon pace but it wasn’t unbearable. The undulations make it a real test for club choices. Overall a great day & we’ll be back soon

Great course

Great course, ut had handled the recent rain quite well considering. Paths and some areas wet and boggy but the actual course very playable with no standing water on fairways etc. Only issue was it was fully booked and at our tee time there were still 2 groups on the tee waiting so if it gets busy expect to be waiting if you play at a half decent pace

Lovely Course and Top condition

Really good value for money, well kept course and very scenic. Sand treatment on the greens and being wet made putting difficult but is to be expected on Monday and in Autumn. Will be back.

Nice course but not if it’s raining

Myself and 4 of my friends played here after a night of rain and it was still heavy drizzle when we turned up. The course itself was laid out great and the fairways held the water relatively well. The greens however were virtually unplayable with standing water on every green. This had an impact on the pace of play and our 3 and a 2 ball turned into a 5 ball after 5 holes as it was so slow and even as 5 players we were waiting on every tee Keeping up with the two ball in front of us. After 8 holes, two of my friends decided enough was enough and walked off the course. Not long after, we decided to just play 16-18 and call it a day. I imagine if it was a weekday, the course would have been closed and it’s understandable during this time they can’t really afford to be refunding a busy days worth of green fees. Would love to play the course again in dry conditions as I’m sure it would be worth the £35 but unfortunately on this day it wasn’t worth the 30 mile drive

Outstanding again

Lovely place to play golf. Even though very wet it was still in very good condition.
Work currently being done in and around the place which will make it more enjoyable to play.
See you in the summer when the greens and fairways will be immaculate I’m sure

Unhappy 3 ball

Played here on weds 27 Feb after a lovely unusual spell of warm weather , have played here many times before as I live locally
Was booked on TeeOffTimes for £20 +the £1 booking fee each x3 golfers £63
On arrival at the course we were scheduled to tee of at 7.48 am playing partner who booked it was told we had to play off mats in the fairways and then produce 3 mats at £6 each on which £4 was returned when the mats were took back in other words charged us £2 for each mat to play
Why we couldn’t just drop to the side I don’t know , we are proficient golfers members of other clubs who know how things work
On returning the mats we vented our dismay to the lad in the shop and asked what was the purpose of paying for mats that they insisted we have obviously to protect the course
His response was the shop had paid for them and this was the way to recover the cost
Wasn’t happy with that and for the benefit of others ask when you book to play here because it will happen again
We explained that we wouldn’t return and the £63 we paid they won’t be getting again

Impressive set up

Really enjoyed our round, course was in great condition, lots of ground staff working on the course. Greens difficult to hold due to the hot weather , but very true. For the price we paid it was a bargain, played this course about six years ago, but it is better now. Would definitely recommend this course.

Beware the trees

A very enjoyable round of golf for 4 mid handicappers. A good layout with some lovely approaches and tee shots.
Par 3s are a bit similar. You have to plot your way around as the trees will block you out on nearly every hole.

Greens were in great shape with some interesting pin positions. Only downside of the day is the separate prices of food for members and visitors which I feel is a step back into the dark ages. A £2.70 sandwich costs a visitor £5 not exactly welcoming in the 19th.
