Perfect weather
Walked

Great course and friendly staff in pro shop

The greens were in good condition and run true. The course was in good nick and it is quite challenging and quite hilly so you need to be in good shape to walk it. The staff in the pro shop was very friendly and made you feel very welcome. I never went into the clubhouse so I can’t comment on hospitality etc.

Golf Course review

Course was well maintained. First time playing there and didn't realise it was so hilly! Friendly staff. Great Course only issue was the tees were very close to the greens on certain holes but not sure this would bother me when I revisit this Course.

A very enjoyable challenging course

If you've never played here then your missing out. It's a challenging course with plenty of elevation changes. Very well designed course in a stunning, quite hidden location. Front nine is easier than the back which let's you find your swing. I'm tempted to join full membership I enjoyed it so much.

Stunning

Quite simply a stunning course, every hole is an individual challenge and will look beautiful in the summer months. Knocks socks off anything else locally and makes other courses look, well, boring

Lovely course

Cant make comment on the staff yet as i did not go into clubhouse or shop as another member of my group checked us in but the course is in excellent condition for the time of year! And the greens are on fire really challenging and quick.

Hats off to the green keepers for keeping the place in such good condition over winter, will definately be returning and strongly considering joining.

Will be stunning in the summer months

Unfortunately due to the time of year the course was very wet and we had to play off little peices of mat on the fairways, which 9 times out of 10 went further than the ball. Larger sized mats with a little bit more weight may elevate the problem. The rain kept off and we stayed dry, from the knees up. ps. It will be stunning in the summer months.

Should have been closed

We played the course on new years day it should never have been open.
Mats had to used on fairways and rough to protect a course whi h was alteady unplayable.
No staff or amenities were open, so its difficult to judge when even the pro shop was closed.
We played as far as we could but walked off after 7 holes.
Although it was new years day,no one even noticed we were even playing
