Superb condition and interesting holes.

Played here last summer on a Saturday and it put me off. Nearly 6 hours to get round. No starter checking on people etc. Didn't even feel like I got a chance to enjoy the course as was just waiting around for so long.

Went back today. Wonderful. We were slow (2 old boys in group) so we let people past, not something I experienced last time. Course was in superb condition. Fairways luscious. Greens running good. Few pitch marks left by players, which is a shame to see, but a great round..loads of interesting holes and all 3 of us considering joining now (again, I had this thought last year but pace of play put me off)
Shot 96 so not too bad either.

Pleasantly surprised

Played this course and for the amount of money I paid for a Saturday morning I wasn't expecting much. The course however was in superb condition and offered enough challenge for a good golfer whilst being accessible for less able golfers such as myself. The greens were a little slow but that was my only complaint, seeing deer was definitely a highlight. Staff were very friendly and the clubhouse has clearly been there a while. Didn't stop for food or drink but there were plenty of other people enjoying it when we passed through. Will be going back.

Busy but Good

Played on a Saturday morning in a 3 ball. Course was busy with mainly 4 balls but there were no real hold ups and no backing up on tees. Despite very heavy overnight rain course was in good condition. Course marshal was visible during round and staff very friendly. A very enjoyable round and will be back.
