Our teeofftimes booking hadn’t made it through to the golf centre so we had to tee off an hour later which meant we couldn’t complete our round!

Lovely course, enough for every handicap ... just pace of play remains an issue ...

If you can see that people are up against you and waiting on every tee then please wave them through ...

spoils the day otherwise ..

Good course though ...

This is a great course which is pretty forgiving but with enough there to make you think twice about just reaching for the driver off the tee. Great weather andbreaking 90 for the first time, a very satisfying round of golf. My only critiscism was the state of the greens, which has been tanged Andy heavily sanded, making them really bumpy. Great day though

Played this course quite a bit now and never lets me down. The staff are great and the course is always in great condition. Not too hard but certainly not easy. Will be returning for sure in the very near future.

I was not greeted with the warmest of welcomes, I had booked a one ball but I was keen to join others for a round. On the first tee I asked a gent if I could join him, he just said no you play by yourself.

I caught caught up to a two bit sadly they weren’t keen on me joining. Play was backing up and a fourball would not let anybody through. At one point 2 two balls played the same hole at the same time, and all four were looking for lost balls. Not once did they signal for me to play through, and on the back 9 I watched them look for 11 balls without letting me play through. Just shy of four hours to play 18 by myself! Two birdies though!!

Firstly the course should have been closed. Greens OK but everywhere else very very wet and muddy. Little or no attempt to protect fairways, etc. Going to be a mess for months.

Second they ignore any tee of time you have booked. At our booked time there were at least 5 other groups waiting to go. More than half hours wait. No Marshals to help things along. Shan't bother again.

Enjoyable mid week round of golf. The course was in good condition and made more challenging with the rough allowed to grow a longer. Two of us went round in less than 3 hours so a a good pace was possible.

Our booking was for 2pm but a Society in front had slowed the following players. By the time we reached the seventh tee we were up behind those waiting on the tee's. From this point onwards the game slowed up considerably mainly due to society players taking too long to look for lost balls (everyone loses balls but minutes were lost on virtually every hole) Even on one tee the players stopped and took shelter from a downpour instead of putting 'wets' on and continuing - somewhat frustrating! After the game the restaurant appeared 'rammed' so we went to a nearby pub but overall a good afternoon.

It's a short course but currently in great condition. The greens are fast and true and the rough beyond the first cut will render your ball lost as soon as you find it. So while it is short you need be accurate.

For the price paid (£13 for a 5pm tee) I thought the course was excellent.
