Means Castle Golf Academy

This is a good 9-hole course with several par-3s and 1 par-5.. It has a good mix of types of hole for a 9-hole course and is straightforward to play. The layout was changed some years ago to speed play up and this has worked well to ensure a steady pace of play even on busy days by judicious use of the par-3 holes.

Decent 9 hole course

Enjoyable nine hole course. Four par 3s and one par 5. A decent challenge for the average golfer and nicely laid out.

My only criticism would be that the fabric of the course is a little shabby, for example a lot of unrepaired divots on the fairways. I don’t think this reflects the efforts of the staff, rather an indication of the course being well used and a victim of its own success in that regard.

I’d definitely play again and would recommend it.

Driving range

Went there to hit a few balls at driving range . Nice outlook, but very poor tee areas . The abilty to have different tee heights not customer friendly . Have to lift a very heavy Matt to change your tee heights as you can’t have 2 beside each other without it getting in way of swing . This issue badly needs updated for a better and easier experience.

Went down hill way to many members

I played this course around 1 year ago and was really good to play now however there are around 850 members and for a 9 holer I thought was a bit much and to make things worse seems they don’t appreciate the course don’t repair divots or pitch marks, staff however are very helpful on site driving range great location pity about course conditions

Course in terrible condition

Ive been to the driving range a few times and decided to try there 9 hole course. Course itself was not bad but its kept in horrible condition. The mats on the tee boxes are really poor quality and its very swampy everywhere. Also the greens are probably the worst kept ive seen. Staff are great and really friendly and as i said I enjoy the range but the course its in terrible condition.
