The only reason I have not given full marks across the board is due the playing winter greens. Not that I mean that in a negative way because the greens look like they will be pristine when they are back in play. Quite a golfer friendly layout, being a high handicapper I enjoyed the round as there were not many hazards which I always seem to find. Look forward to returning in the better weather. Special note for all staff at the course I was made to feel extremely welcome. Thanks

Friendly & helpful staff, in fact the Pro let us play early as the course was quiet. The fairways were in good condition considering the very hot & dry weather we have been having & the greens were superb. Thoroughly enjoyed our day golfing & will certainly play there again soon.

Played on a Mon late am by which time most club players were out on the course but no hold ups. Hadn’t played this before and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the course and condition of fairways and greens, especially given the time of year. I was carrying and found the undulating terrain quite tiring but my playing partners had trolleys so had no problem. Nice clubhouse and friendly staff. All in all great value and highly recommended.

21/10/16 13:10 Friday - Beautiful, autumnal, sunny day, 11 degrees

Summary

Well maintained course, good challenge and a good nature walk

Managed to get a hot deal £17 a head including fee, definitely a bargain

Location and wildlife

The course is leased from Wharncliffe estate which means it is surrounded by trees and hence wildlife. At this time of year there's an abundance of pheasants, squirrels and even the odd stoat

Course Layout

The course is well laid out with only a couple of points where it is advisory to hold off from teeing due to proximity to other holes - no holes cross one another or feel dangerously close. The woodland is very mature but the holes are not excessively tight so you are not overly punished unless you hook or slice severely. The holes are laid out across a hillside and some have significant rise or fall from tee to pin, you will notice walking particularly if you are carrying!

Condition

The course was in great condition considering recent rain. It was clear that the greens keepers had been extremely busy (many were working as we went round). There may have been a recent or upcoming competition as clear fencing and markings were out for GUR wherever the course was too soft.

Difficulty

This course has a good variety of distance, elevation and obstructions to make it interesting and challenging for me as an irregular, high teens golfer.

Members, facilities

There were precious few people on the course but those we met were friendly. The facilities are all in good order, and food is good value. One drawback is that the practice area is a bit of a trek

Excellent course apart from the greens had recently been hollow tined leaving the surface very bumpy.

Would have been nice to have known this before I booked as it took away the enjoyment of play this course.

Booked in with ease with the professional. Course in very good condition, greens had been top dressed but we're very true and good to putt on. The round took a little longer than expected due to a hail storm, snow and rain. Would love to return later in year when weather and greens in top condition but overall excellent value.

Course was in great condition apart from all the greens which still showed signs of hollow tining making them very bumpy to put on.

No info about this when I booked the round.
