Go and see the bluebells when they are in season - at the back of the hidden 10th green they are a better sight than Augusta! The course is relatively short but testing. MacKenzie greens and bunkers make for a very interesting mix, but pars and possible birdies for high handicappers make for an interesting and enjoyable round. Nice wide fairways interspersed with blind tee shots and approaches put many of today's 7,000 yarders to shame. Enough undulation to keep you on your toes and fit! Try it and enjoy!
Played 2nd April (midweek) using a 2 for 1 voucher.
This is a good parkland layout with some good drives off elevated tees.
The greens are quite small and many have some quite severe slopes, so you need to be accurate and leave yourself uphill putts, the condition i would say was good for the time of year - they had been tined recently but were still quick, if a little inconsistent.
The fairways were also in good condition.
I would say the course is relatively easy - the only 2 demanding holes are realy the 6th at 468 yards par 4, and the 15th - a 243 yard par 3. If you hit the ball reasonably long and can putt, then you should play below your handicap as inaccuracy isnt realy punished on a lot of the holes.
My only real criticism is that when i phoned to book a tee time the day before we played, i checked that we would be paying on the winter rates (£20 or a tenner each with a voucher) - the guy in the pro shop stated clearly that this was correct. When we arrived we were told the course was now on summer rates starting that morning and it was now £40 i.e. £20 each on the voucher. they then had the cheek to charge extra to pay using a credit card - this is not a £40 course, particularly as most of the holes were still of winter tee mats.
Considering the other local courses that are on the discount voucher scheme that you can pay for less, we were not impressed.
Played this course now for the last 3 weeks as after 3.30pm its £15 per round. Due to this its very busy, but is great value for money. The course isnt long (under 6000yds) but is tight and quite a few holes cross causing conjestion in the middle of the course. The greens are fantastic and very receptive. There are a variety of different holes from short par 3's to reasonably long uphill par 5's.
My favourite hole is the 291yd 16th which played from an elevated tee is easily drivable if you're feeling brave, my least favourite is the 9th which from the yellows cannot be played with anything more than an 8 iron into a valley and then a short pitch between mounds to the green, it may well be more of a risk/reward short par 4 from the medal tees.
All in all a very nice course which I have enjoyed playing in still and very windy conditions, friendly members too.
Only problem is how busy it gets due to the positioning of the holes/tees but this is a minor critisicm.
I played here in the British Heart Foundation junior championhips with my school. was really impressed despite not being overly long (bar one par 3!) it was quite tight and in awesome condition. Best hole is definately the par 3 fifth. Can't comment on value for money coz only had to raise sponsorship money but I thouroughly enjoyed my round.
Lovely course. A superb mix of easy and hard holes. The par 5's are more than reachable for short hitters like me and the par 3's arent too easy. The greens are as good as any and the tees and fairways are well manicured. Definately worth a visit despite the extremely steep green fees.
Played this course begining of March and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Despite the very wet winter the course was in excellent condition. Only 3 temp greens and these were OK. The 5th 3 par is a treat. The tee on a high hill with the green in a valley below and a stream to traverse. The staff were friendly and the bar food was top class; Recommended. We took away membership forms.
This is a fine course close to the M62 Bradford turn off. The par 5's are long especially when windy, but you get the benefit of 5 par 3's. The best is the 5th, depending on the weather this could be a 3 wood or a Wedge. Great Course, worth stopping off to play.
An outstanding course. Well groomed. Strange arrangement of three par 5's in a row running parallel. Curious 9th hole, but still an excellent course in great condition. Fantastic par 3 5th hole is one to remember
