Nice little course, not long but accuracy and distance control needed to get a good score.

Fairways good, greens excellent, bunkers okay.

BUT... Four and three quarter hours for a twoball going 5800 yards is a joke.

I have played this course many times and always have an enjoyable experience. There are a wide variety of holes of varying difficulites. The course is generally fair and the greens are kept to a high standard. With green fees of arounf £12 on weekdays this is an excellent value course.

I was a junior member here 15 years ago and it's not really changed a great deal. Challenging front 9 then a slightly easier back 9. Great value for money that I have found hard to beat. The club pro Steve Ellis and his son Matt are 2 top guys who will always give help/advice if required.

Enjoyable experience. Course not too hilly nor too flat. Plenty of variety in the holes, not boring. Sited at a leisure centre which surprised us by the cafe being closed - at 2pm ?

That was the only letdown. But we would go again.

Course is poor in winter - boggy.

Golf Facilities basic.

Staff friendly.

Course design is pretty good.

However, online costs are probably the best value around.

Overall a good deal

Taking 4 hours due to the very slow play by the groups ahead of use spoiled a good round of golf

How these players will react to new rule changes will be interesting - eg not putting the ball when it is inches from the cup amazed us

Im not kidding, grass cuttings on every single fairway - which meant you couldn't tell if your on the fairway or not! Good course layout totally let down by a dodgy mower. Proper school boy error - i've played golf all my life and never seen cuttings everywhere like this! I would suggest a pretty good winter course when the broken mower isn't out! Greens were good, bunkers usual builders sand however... I might come back for a £10.
