I played here with my Cousin on Sept. 17th.
The course is rather hilly to say the least, (there’s only one flat fairway), and you need to be 110% fit to walk it, and even more so if you’re carrying, but there are plenty of buggies for us mere mortals. (That said, the one we had was arguably the slowest I’ve ever driven, though it got us there in the end.)
As compensation for the effort, the view from the 13th tee is well worth seeing, whilst at the foot of the hills are some delightful little corners which must be lovely and peaceful on a calm sunny day (which it wasn’t!)
The layout of the course is puzzling - few holes seem to follow logically from the previous one, but I suppose it was a question of fitting them into the terrain available, and, with the buggy taking the strain it doesn’t particularly detract from the enjoyment.
It’s also a course of extremes - three of the five short holes can be reached with a pitching-wedge, whilst there are several holes where you’ll have to be brilliant to even get near in regulation.
As with other courses in this area the soil is very heavy hereabouts, so if you try a crisp punch shot the clubhead tends to dig in and turn, but that’s just the way it is, and you just have to adjust to it.
Although perhaps due for a cut, and rather slow for my own liking, the greens seemed quite true, and the general condition of the course shows that it’s obviously well maintained.
Off the course this is actually a Country Club as well as a Golf Club, and into the bargain it caters for functions and events, such as weddings.
As such, the clubhouse is quite big, with a fitness gym (didn’t try it - didn’t want to show all the others up!), tennis courts, and suchlike.
We only went into the lounge/bar, but it’s well appointed, the service friendly, the food good, and the prices not too bad.
All in all a pleasant day in good company, passable weather, and very pleasant surroundings.
Held a charity event here & it was very good. The course, after a very long dry spell, was in very good condition. Fairways good & greens excellent. It's a thinking mans course with a few short par fours but not necessarily reachable in one because of dog-legs & traps. A bit hilly at times but not rediculously so. Clubhouse & pro-shop has been extended a lot in the last couple of years offering a far greater range of facilities to visiters & members alike. Off course the clubhouse was very good as was the catering & the welcome second to none. I liked the course before this charity event, having travelled from Bristol to play there several times, I love it now! Highly recommended.
Simply brilliant. Visited between Christmas and New Year for the second year running and the quality of the course was second to none. Had to tee from mats, but fairways were beautifully maintained and the bunkers full of good soft sand. I'm used to playing boggy fairways and hardpan bunkers this time of year so this was a real treat. I play off 20 and the course provided a good variety of holes through woodland and open country. Stunning views. Members and staff very friendly and courteous. This is a 'must play' course for anyone in the area.
