This was my second time to play this course. The first was during the summer...with a bit of drought.

The course was in good shape. Greens seemed to be a little inconsistent and a few areas of poor grass on the fairways kept me from giving it the highest marks.

Overall a really good course.

Pace of play very poor as members didn't speed up when prompted to do so politely. Condition of course very good and some challenging holes and speedy greens to battle with.

Played this with my father a couple of times not and we agree it's a great course and very good VFM. The first 6 holes are pretty tough and the last few are pretty tricky too. Very, very nice greens, good grass, well watered and well looked after bunkers.

Only criticism is the customary signs urging golfers to run around the course at top speed, there is no way pensioners and women can play that fast.

Had a great day out. The weather helped as it was a sunny day. We were a two ball behind a four ball but it wasn't to slow. We were not pressed from behind. Greens were a bit slow but understandable for this time of year. Good test of golf with some lovely signiture holes. I'd recommend it for a good test of golf. Give it a try.

The course was in good condition but several holes had been shortened.....by too much in my opinion. There were opportunities to protect the existing tees ( good move) but the replacements didn't have to be 100m further towards the greens! Still a great course to play and not to be missed.

A potentially really enjoyable experience absolutely ruined by dreadful pace of play. A four ball in front who had no idea of golf etiquette and a 3 ball in front of them who spent most of the time searching for balls whilst refusing to let anyone play through. 1hr 30 to play 6 holes was enough and headed back to the car.
