Course ok shame about the club members

Booked a buggy but was not told by anyone in the shop that it was golf path only. When we started the first hole it was noticeable by the tracks that everyone was driving on the course. On the 16th I was confronted by an irate member of the club who told me to get off the grass and stay on the path. I did and apologized.

The first nine holes were fun and because only two of us were playing. people let us through. Unfortunately, we then reached a rude foursome who would not let us through. They maintained the group in front of them were playing a tournament. They were not and were just playing at a painfully slow pace. A real shame that a potentially great course is spoiled by a number of rude, arrogant members.

Nice Course in good condition for time of year

Booked thru tee-off times online but had to call club to book a buggy. When speaking to club they advised there had been a system problem with tee-off times and the tee time booked was no longer available. Offered another tee time about an hour later which was ok. When checking in today staff at club apologised again and gave us buggy for just £10 instead of usual £25. Bar area very good and recommend the breakfast baps and coffee. Very nice day of golf. No temporary greens. A few temporary tee areas but no terrible mats. Happy to recommend and will play again.
