A typical hotel golf course. Visitors not repairing divot/pitch marks but apart from that and a bit wet under foot OK.

This was the first (and last) time I have played the Abbey course. The pace of play was fine but overall the course was a disappointment. Firstly its set in a housing estate which to my mind is not conclusive with a pleasant game of golf with residents watching you play on some holes and walking their dogs! The bunkers had sand but it was very hard and you struggled to get under the ball. Most of the ball washers were either broken or were dry and there were no benches anywhere on the course if wanted to sit down,. The course was fairly uninspiring and was a flat parkland course. On the upside the greens were fairly true and the fairways reasonable but the course didn't feel well maintained. We paid £20.00 per round which was not at all good value when compared to other courses we have played recently. Overall not a memorable course and we wont be going back.

Decent hot day again, and the course was dry, but not burnt out, and the greens had been kept a bit longer than normal due to the hot summer, but i thought they were in very good nick, and rolled well at a decent pace.The course is unusual as it winds its way mingling with a housing estate, but the design is ok, and some good challenging holes, with water being a factor on a number of shots, overall i enjoyed the course as it was my first time on it, and felt it was value for money.

Arrival and check-in was trouble free and easy.

The practice green was in good order.

The overall condition of the course was very poor for the time of year, the fairways were long and the semi rough indistinguishable from the rough itself.

Greens were fluffy and in poor order with much debris to clear on a number of holes.

Pitch marks were in abundance and whilst we did not pay a lot to play after 5pm it was disappointing.

We would not play this course again despit being local.
