Booked for 10:30, on arrival told the system wasn’t live and we were now playing at 11:00. No contact before hand to inform us of the change.

The course was very poor even considering the time of year. Tees were terrible and rough, bunkers were more stones than sand. There was an awful lot of branches on the fairways that could of been cleared. We only saw one groundsman all day.

It’s a real pity as the layout of the course means that if looked after it would be really good.

Course was in good condition despite all the rain lately. We played holes 1 to 9 then 19 to 27, holes 10 to 18 were closed for work by green staff. Greens were very good on 1 to 9, good paced and true but 19 to 27 had been hollow tined so were a bit slower and bumpier, but still ok. The course is a good challenge with some tricky to reach greens well protected by bunkers and water in places, as well as changes in elevation.

After our round we went into the bar as we usually do, to sample the food and the beer and this was the most disappointing part of the day. A pint of Peroni lager and a bitter shandy was £10.50! We looked at the food menu, sausage sandwich, (£3/ £3.50 in most clubs) £5 but only served until 11am. Egg mayo or ham sandwich £6/£7 so decided not to bother and instead asked for 2 bags of crisps which were £2 a bag. £14.50 for 2 pints and 2 bags of crisps!

There were quite a good few people out on the course but only about 6 people in the bar and they were drinking tea!

Will go back and play the course again but avoid the bar!

The fairways were a bit rough in parts and the greens contained lots of pitch marks that had not been repaired. Also it is a 27 hole course and I thought the sign posting for each 9 could have been better

day off wanted a game at a different course within 45 mins of where I live. Hot deal couldn't go wrong £12 round less than £1 a hole.. Nice condition considering dry , hot , summer. Greens as on previous visit very good. Enjoyed the round slow back nine as followed some a think beginners well at times couldn't hit the ball when they did went side ways...

Course very nice, extremely hard but greens were still excellent. Disappointing that the bunkers lacked sand so were near impossible to get out of.

Excellent course. Played 1-18 (there are 27 holes) plenty of variation to please both high and low handicap. Unforgiving rough but plenty of fairway to avoid this! A most enjoyable experience.

I Have played this course several times it use to be a municipal course but the council sold it to the hotel group so they might call it a championship course but it is not, the condition is average and way overpriced unless you go through teeofftimes,I required a buggy which cost £35 I only found this out when I turned up last year they where £20 quite an increase.the last 3 times Ive played here is through teeofftimes they always start you on holes 19-27 then you do 1-9,from coming off the 27th hole to teeing off on the 1st must be 3/4 of a mile walk so I hope your fit plus holes 19-27 are a add on and not part of the so called championship course.There are plenty of better courses in the region try one off them.

Despite recent weather we found the course in top top condition. Plenty of staff on the course keeping the course remarkably well on full tees and full greens. Definite return soon.
