I’ve played this course numerous times over the last few years and for a municipal found it very good, even though a couple of the par 3’s are only about 100 yards in length. The condition of the course is usually excellent, especially the fairways, the greens usually well kept.

I’ve just played it again today and it’s such a shame, the state of this course at the moment. I know the weather has been hot and sunny for a number of weeks but the greens are currently in a shocking state. They are extremely bumpy and a mixture of brown patches and small tufts of grass, putts of any decent length are a complete lottery and it’s worse than putting on winter greens. The practice putting green is even worse, there are a number of large cracks in the surface because it hasn’t been watered in ages (there is no hosepipe ban yet!!).

There are no reduced fees available for this course, it’s £18.00 for an adult on any day of the week, which, considering the current state of the greens, is a disgrace. If you are flexible, regarding when you can play, there are cheaper deals available at some nearby private courses.

Wide open fairways if you lose a ball it must be a very bad shot. Best kept fairways and the best greens I've played on

Very friendly staff and course in excellent condition. They have planted a lot of new trees which when mature will make the course a lot harder. At the moment it's quite an easy course which suits us as we are only average players

I got my lowest score ever 82 yippee

What more do you want for a tenner. Course was in decent condition. Greens had been having some work done but in considerstion of that generally ok. Layout is tough with hard to see holes and yardages difficult to gauge to go along with that. Some run offs and course work that had been done which proved challenging. Overall not bad. But again I come back to its a tenner. Your not going to expect a championship course and for that I think it's decent and a good knock.
