I played this course for the first time this month and it is one of the best courses that I have played, The way that this course was presented was unbelievable, the greens were absolutely fantastic, the tree lined fairways were lush and a pleasure to hit from, and on the few occasions that my ball went into the trees, of which there are plenty, they have trimmed all of the undersides of the trees so that you can find your ball but at the same time have to just play a safety shot out of them.
There are some really good challenging holes, mixed in with some easy looking holes that can jump up and bite you badly (as I found out to my cost)
The pro staff were very helpful when We arrived, and the food we had in the club house after our game was excellent, one of the best meals that I have ever had at a golf club, and I have played many different courses in this country
If every you get the chance to go and play this course, as far as I am concerned, don't think twice, go and play, you won't be disappointed
Played here midweek December 06.
Pleasant tree lined parkland course but not one that really stirred the emotions.
The course is divided in two by a road & this does disturb the ambience a bit.
Although the holes are treelined & not unattractive by the start of the back 9 i was starting to find them a bit mundane .There was a slight lack of variety & you could sense there weren't going to be any surprises in store & that the next hole wasn't going to be much different to the one you'd just played.
However ,surprisingly from the 13th to the finish the holes became slightly different in character (more heavily tree lined & with more specimen trees)& more interesting & which made you think a bit more.
13 was a shorter more strategic par 4 with a smaller than normal green .14 a good dogleg with an unusual archway hedge behind the green .15 a lovely short quirky uphill par 3.The 18th green was almost right next to the clubhouse which i liked.
These holes made for an enjoyable finishing stretch.
The course doesn't seem to drain that well & i understand courses need to be protected in December but some tees were off the ladies & most of the flags were at the front of the green.Also three good par 3 's weren't off the normal teeing area so be warned .
The greens although a bit footprinty putted very true & the pace was just right.
The clubhouse had a nice feel to it & the main room was relaxed & exactly what you want.
