First played on this course about 20 years ago just after it opened and you paid your green fees in a tiny portacabin.
Since then, I have played on and off at the course probably 3-4 times a year. I've seen the club house being built and watched the trees grow VERY slowly. There are a lot of fir trees, way too many in my opinion - wish there was some variety to the trees. I just wish they'd spent a little less on trees and a bit more on adding a bot of character - a few more bumps and hollows and slightly better bunkers.
They have been making some improvements of recent - they've added some pools which if anything have made it even harder to get to the green by relying on the run. They've also swapped the front nine and back nine around, why I don't know (you do have to walk past the club house now between the 9th and 10th - so maybe that has something to do with it).
The course is quite good value and isn't usually too busy - in fact sometimes it is very quiet. It does play quite long for me with a lot of long par 4's. That said there isn't much trouble off the tee so you don't have to drive huge distances to get onto the fairways. Greens are kept in reasonable condition.
Reasonable food and drink selection.
Certainly worth a visit if you're in the area
Despite constant heavy rain in the week we arrived for our sunday morning round to find the course in great condition on the whole. One temporary green in use, making the dog leg 3rd a straight "drive and pitch" hole. The only other minor gripe was a boggy tee box on the 2nd. Highlights for me were the split fairway 8th hole and just how well the course played after the adverse weather conditions of that week. Length off the tee is important, with wide tree-lined fairways allowing you let fly. Bunkers were good in the main (a few pebbles in some) and the greens were excellent. Clubshop is smaller than most. My group and I loved playing here and will return soon. £20 for 18, can't complain.
A long, & reasonably challenging course. Most fairways are straight, with a couple having slight dog-legs, but mostly it is the distance that provides the challenge. Of 3 par threes, 2 need at least a 3/4 iron, so even these are long ! Would recommend ringing before just turning up to ensure a tee time as it gets busy throughout the week. On the whole a very friendly club, & well kept course & well worth £15 !
A quite club that is maturing well with some testing holes. Non of the greens present major challenges in terms of protection by bunkers & the 3rd has nice elevated tee with the fairway lined both sides by streams. Some of the greens are uninteresting but the trees are a challenge that needs straigh tee shots. The 8th has a split fairway, with the shortest route being the tightest. Some of the greens need some urgent work but the course is still woth playing.
VISITED COURSE IN JULY FOUND AFTER THE FIRST 3 HOLES THAT THE COURSE GOT BETTER, GREENS WERE A BIT PATCHY IN PLACES BUT JUST NEEDED A BIT MORE ATTENTION.THE BUNKERS WERE AWFULL AS THERE WERE TO MANY STONES, IN OUR GROUP WE TOOK FREE DROPS AS THEY WERE UNPLAYABLE NEEDED SOME BETTER SAND.SOME OF THE HOLES WERE VERY DEMANDING AND I FEEL THAT IN TIME AND A BIT MORE WORK ON THE COURSE THAT THIS COULD REALLY BE A GOOD COURSE TO PLAY
A great course to play. Played here on the 25/5/03. The course itself is maturing nicely with the conifers along the fairways growing to full size. The greens are very well kept, but when I played here the fairways could have done with a cut. For high handycappers the course may be too demanding, for mid to low handycappers it will still test them, especially teeing off on the ong holes on the course. For some of the par fours you do well to get on the green in two. The par 5 16th is almost impossible to reach in two, even with a good drive and another wood. One bad thing about the course is the par 3 14th, its stupidly long. I hit the ball a long way and had to take a 3 wood to reach the green. The tee could easily be moved another 30 - 40 yards closer.
A FLAT PARKLAND COURSE, THAT IS STARTING TO MATURE NICELY WITH ITS MANY CONIFERS LINING THE FAIRWAYS. THE COURSE IS EXPOSED AND CAN PROVIDE A REAL CHALLENGE IF THE WIND IS UP. THE GREENS ARE FLAT, BUT PUTT TRUE AT ANY TIME OF THE YEAR. THERE ARE NOT TOO MANY MEMORABLE HOLES, THE PAR 4 3RD BEING BY FAR THE BEST, WITH THE FAIRWAY LINED EITHER SIDE WITH STREAMS. HOLES 7 - 9 ARE VERY TESTING LONG PAR 4'S. THE 7TH HAS A DOUBLE FAIRWAY, IT IS MORE OPEN TO THE RIGHT BUT LEAVES A VERY LONG SHOT TO THE GREEN WHEREAS THE LEFT SIDE IS MUCH TIGHTER. THE PAR 3 14TH IS A POOR HOLE, AND SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN FITTED IN. THE TEE COULD EASILY BE MOVED UP SOME THIRTY YARDS, WHILST PUTTING MORE BUNKERS AROUND THE GREEN WOULD MAKE IT A MEMORABLE HOLE. THE FINAL TWO HOLES PRESENTS A TOUGH FINISH. THE 17TH IS A LONG PAR 4, THAT EVEN WITH A GOOD TEE SHOT DOES NOT MEAN IT CAN BE REACHED IN TWO. THE 18TH IS A LONG PAR 3 WITH OUT OF BOUNDS ON THE LEFT. OVERALL IT PROVIDES EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONEY AND IS WORTH A VISIT, ESPECIALLY DURING THE WINTER MONTHS WHEN OTHER COURSES MAY BE SUFFERING.
Having played the course on the 16th dec 2001, I found the course to be well drained even after recent poor weather the greens are in excellent condition(firm and true) if mainly flat, the fairways again good (a good course to play after bad weather) The course is a little plain with a few interesting holes as the last guy said there are 1000's of new ferns which are now up to 12 feet high. I can see this being a very nice course when they grow 30-40 feet and you can hit straight.
Played the wergs in a society fixture recently for first time in 2 years, A relatively flat course but with many thousands of small (getting taller very quickly)conifers.you can lose up to 2 to 10 shots per round blocked out by tree's if you are'nt straight.
