Very Poor Layout

The course was well kept and the holes were good in general. However, it’s disappointing that it was just the same 9 holes repeated rather than a full 18.

The midway hole crossover which is back to back is unplayable if busy, we were in front of 2 4-ball learner groups and they flooded the shared fairway, there is simply not enough space.

On top of this, hole 3 is barely playable due to a more or less non existent fairway.

Too over sold to enjoy.

Better signage required

Very confusing course in that you are playing on to the same hole from separate tees in order to stretch this course to an 18 holer. This is fine, but the course conditions are really poor and the signage is awful, so you may spend a lot of time looking for the next hole as I did.

Friendly Staff, Terrible Course

The general public walking everywhere so constantly have to wait, no Marshall so tee times weren’t spread out enough causing backlog, 4 holes share the same fairway so you are quite literally hitting at other golfers.

Worst layout I’ve ever played. It’s cheap, but still not worth it, save your money. Should really only be a 9 hole course.

The course was ok, needs attention

This course has a lot of potential but needs more up keep, being very open means this must be hard so I do understand the difficulty.
As I fairly new golfer we were constantly being harassed by other golfers that had and we’re still drinking on the course, we asked them to play through but they refused and carried on complaining so our game was very rushed and less enjoyable.

Great to be back

It's so good ot be back playing social golf!
The staff were very friendly and helpful, even sharing details about the local pub on the 6th hole.
It's such a social links course that the extended walk from the 2nd to 3rd hole is more like a quirk than a fault.
The best bit was the cold beers at the end in front of the clubhouse, but looking forward to the crowd returning outside Marney's Village Inn!

A fun nine holes

A great course if you’re looking for a quick, enjoyable, cheap and cheerful half round. This is golf at its most welcoming, least snobby and most accessible. The common grounds mean that there are dog walkers and joggers to dodge but most are keen to avoid getting hit or trespassing on your round. Myself and my son enjoyed a fun nine holes and the course was remarkably dry given the 48 hour downpour that preceded it.

Good days golf but with drawbacks

Considering the time of the year and the amount of rain we have had recently this course always amazes me how well it plays. I dont know what soil its on but the fairways for the most part are pretty dry and very playable. The course is short which suits me but it does require some accurate hitting particularly as most greens are small and there is a lot of heather and goarse around.
The minus side for the course is its built on a common and therefore there are many walkers and dogs to avoid.
