Not the best

Overall the round was fine but not one of the better courses in the area. Too many tee shots on the front 9 straight into the afternoon sun so no chance of tracking the ball. Even though I was told all greens were in play at the club shop more than half were temporary. Had to wait on every single tee, groups not letting people play through.

Good afternoon experience

Played with a colleague, corse fairways played exceptionally well, greens were difficult to read and quite unforgiving.
Would definitely play course again and give more attention to reading the greens.

Great course / bad pace of play

The last 3 times I’ve played here the pace of play has been very disappointing - the course in the afternoon always seems to be very very slow going - that aside I absolutely love this golf course which is why I return everytime

Sunday afternoon round

Disappointed about there being no Marshall’s out on what was clearly a busy days on the course. We teed off at 2.30 and has only got to the 14th hole by 6pm. Took all enjoyment out of our day and we walked off the course. It would have genuinely taken over 5 and half hours to play the valley course which is a joke considering I’ve been round before in under 3!! Won’t be playing on a weekend there again.

Good course in the rain

The pace of play on the Friday we went was very good until the last two holes, then a three ball refused to let anyone play through even though they were playing slow. The very heavy rain meant most, if not all, of the greens were very water logged. Puddles in the greens. Sometimes unputtable. But the layout of the course is fantastic. Good for beginners and high handicappers.

Shame too many 3 balls in front and behind! slow pace

Normally a good round can be played but there was too many 3 balls in front and behind playing which too ages to wait and you tend to lose interest after a while due to waiting and players of mixed abilities in the groups.

We all need to learn but a very slow pace this day.
