The layout and course including condition is a pleasure to play, can get quite hilly at times but your mind is taken off that by having to manage your way round a good thinking golfers dream. The staff in the bar and pro shop were very pleasant and welcoming. The only down side but a very big and importantly disappointing fact is the state of the greens. This time of year you expect spiked greens and that’s fine but the amount of small divots and bare chunks on the greens did not leave one rolling putt all round. The pace of the greens were like lightening but at times you could have turned 45 degrees and still ended up on the correct line after the divots had changed the trajectory. It left a sour taste in what was otherwise a good day.

When we played it was windy, very windy. Ball blowing all over the place but the biggest gripe was the pace of play. Seniors, 2 groups in front of us in carts. I’m 62 but christ they pace of play cheesed us off ( put something else but the text police banned it) 4 & 1/4 for a game is not acceptable.

Still a little soggy in places some of the greens a bit patchy due to the bad weather, but I have no doubt this course will be exceptional in the next few weeks

Brilliant value, took advantage of a hot deal. First time I played the course,and considering it was January the course was in brilliant condition. I hopefully will play again when the weather gets better. I would recommend this course, a great variety of holes with plenty of water.

Having booked the "cheap" lunchtime slot at £10 each this was excellent value. We have played before and always enjoy the variety of holes. Par 3s are mostly short but we like that, with the longer holes all offering a different challenge. Bunkers and water are well (cruelly?!) placed. We certainly saw plenty of them! Greens fast today and many multi-tiered, 2 putting was the target. Nice bar, if a little quiet. Friendly and honest locals, especially the one who found my lost i-phone on the first fairway!!

We had a fourball for £12 per man, which was excellent value for money.

Interesting layout with quick greens. Friendly clubhouse bar afterwards too.

We will be back!

Four of us played the course as a warm up to a stay at Oulton Hall which is only 10-15 minutes away. The course was in super condition. Everyone was teally friendly and we had a great all day breakfast in the clubhouse prior to playing. There's a lot of water hazzards on the course so course management is key - overall a good test of golf for all abilities. Will definitely return if we are in the area.

Played on glorious but very hot day. The course was set up very well. It was our first time playing Normanton - one of us experienced and the other fairly new to golf- and we really enjoyed it although recommend a buggy in hot weather as quite a few hills to walk up.

This was a new course for all three of us on our visit and it was a pleasant visual approach as we turned off the main road and up the short drive to the club house.

We weren't disappointed with the pleasant welcome and trouble free book in on arrival.

The course was a real test of skill and many times we could have done with some local course knowledge as it is quite hilly with a lot of blind shots but we found that added to the interest and evened out the handicap range of 14 to 28.

OK, it wasn't our best scores but we weren't expecting that on a course non of us had played.

At the finish, apart from confirming I'd had too many cream scones on my previous Devon hols, the 19th was great as we sat out on the balcony in the blazing sun enjoying the relaxation and watching the other players coming in.

The only criticism we all had was that the direction to the next tee could have been better. Some holes were signed well but some were a struggle as there seemed to be no signs and various possible directions. Other than that, we all had really good days golf and highly recommend the course.
