Too wet

I am well aware it has rained a lot over the past couple of weeks. Also, I enjoy a round of golf just as much as anyone and so would rather courses be open. But, when you turn up to a golf course that is open, one assumes it is in some sort of playable state (especially being charged £27 a round for an otherwise run of the mill pay and play course).

18 winter tees (mats), 3 temporary greens and one hole completely closed which my playing partner and I were completely unaware of until we arrived at said closed hole to find a green that had been dug up, no temporary green in sight and a blank "course information" board plonked on the tee/mat. Also, large parts of the course were pure mud, fit only for a drove of pigs.

Oh, and we also followed a 4-ball contrary to government covid-19 rules at the time of playing...

Hopefully it's pretty obvious to see why we felt the green fee didn't provide value for money. Having said this, the layout of the course is good with some interesting holes. I may consider returning when the weather is better, but let's hope keeping the course open in such wet conditions doesn't do lasting damage.

Wet wet wet

Despite the awful weather recently, the conditions were terrible. A few holes had make shift greens in the middle of fairways. There’s no 15th hole at all. In the summer I could imagine being great but for the price in current conditions was unacceptable.

Was glad to be out playing again and grateful to get a tee time but think the course should really have been closed due to the recent poor weather.
Far too wet still and a mud bath ,two players in front of us in mobility scooters gave up after four holes of churning up the fairways and had to get off and pull them back to the clubhouse .

It could be so much better

The course layout I really liked, not driver off every hole, but a positional golf course.

It doesnt look like iits had any money spent on it in years .
Could be a real little Gem,

The course needs some TLC. Some of the greens were struggling (1st) and bunkers were in a poor condition.

A round to make you think

Despite the awful weather (thanks storm Alex) I really enjoyed my round here. It’s not a course for the boomers out there and requires thought and a straight line.
The greens were super fast, goodness knows how they play when dry! There was some damage caused by squirrels but there’s little the club can do about this.

Staff were friendly and helpful.

Didn’t have any food so cannot comment.

We will be ack again and soon.

Slower than a heard of Tortoise running through peanut butter

The conditions were perfect for a Sunday session, but from the very 1st Tee it was apparent that it was gonna be a long one.

But it wasn't entirely clear until the 4th Hole when at one point there were no less than 4 groups on the same hole.

There was the group in front of me "The searchers" (searching for every ball for a good 6-8 minutes each) on the Green.

Then us, waiting approx 60yards away, watching the shenanigans.

Followed by the group that less us through on the 3rd hole already. Waiting where their 1st shots lay

Followed by the group that had been behind us. Sitting on the grass on the tee off, looking on in dismay.

The course is lovely, but some marshaling would be great on busy days. Noone wants to be the person to approach another group to let them through.

All in all - it took 4.5hours to complete our round.

Anyway summer is on the way out, so we may see the courses open up a bit more now.

Makes you think!

Far from the longest course but each shot has to be well thought out and executed well with narrow fairways and some tricky greens. Very enjoyable

Good Fun

This course is not all about brute force, it's more a thinking mans golf course.
Dog legs, lots of narrow tree lined fairways, and some tricky greens keeps you on your metal.
Course was in good shape, greens were well watered and a little slow as a result.
All In all it was an enjoyable round.
A welcome beer on the bar terrace overlooking the first tee & eighteenth green finished it off nicely.
