I have played this course twice now and love it. Local golfers would be forgiven for thinking that its the "kidderminster Perdiswell" after the first 3 flat holes, however after this the course opens up and has slopes, good fairway bunkers, built up bunkers by the greens and ditches to contend with. The greens are excellent and if you are an occasional player good play will be rewarded with pars, if you are of a better standard the course will give you some excellent scores. Overall this course interests everyone, bad golfers are challenged here and can progress their game and good golfers have plenty of features to contend with. Excellent value for money too, highly reccomended.

This is an excellent pay and play 'links' style course with no sea in site!. You can turn up and play here but its probably best to book a time in advance as this guarantees a prompt start. On the day of attending (23/7/09) the price for 18 holes was £17.40 without any discout vouchers. I have played this course twice now and on both occassions there has been a friendly welcome and our booking has been dealt with hassle free. Tee times are staggered sensibly and there has been no waiting or slow play experienced during the rounds. The course is in a parkland setting with a 'links' feel to it. Fairways are generous but if you hit a wayward shot into the wispy rough then its highly unlikely you will find your ball. The greens are well kept and consistenly run true throughout all of the holes. I have played on a few traditional seaside courses and this is certainly of an equal standard. The layout has the feel of a well kept 'private' course but of great value. I will certainly be returning which is a good recommendation in itself.

I organised a society day here on March 22 2008. The week running up to the event was wet, it snowed early morning on the day, yet the course was in great shape.
It,s not overly long, but the dog-legs make you place your ball.
The practice facilities were not up to much but all in all an excellent society venue.

I played this course about 10 yars ago and thought it was about time i started to play it again toward the end of last year.
compared to some of the Worcester course, I find it quite long. (can't remeber par and yardages)
The course (especially the front nine) is quite flat. the back nine gets a little more hilly with one or two real leg killers.
the greens are of a good quality all the way round.
One thing that is annoying is the yardages. they are a mile out for sure. Eg, There are two holes on the back nine that run up and down (14 and 17 I think). The tee is by the green on each hole but 17 is supposedly 30 yards longer than 14 and is a par 5 rather than a par 4 on 14. very weird. I can reach the par 5 in two with a driver and a 6 iron. I can't reach the par 4 with a driver and a 3iron !!
I suppose it all works out equal in the end but that is besides the point.
The 150yard markers are a mile out too.
There are no real practice facilities to speak of other than a tatty old driving net. there is a very comprehensive driving range next door but the don't open at the same time as the golf club so if you have an early tee time you are stuffed.
Saying all that i do enjoy a knock roung here form time to time, but not my first choice

Played on the 4/12/2005, I was surprised that the course was open because of the snow and rain we'd had earlier in the week. But I was assured that the course was dry by the Club Professional who told me that the course was open all year round because it was built on sand.
I like the course in general, you can't get much better for £15 with a 2 for 1 voucher. It was dry as the pro suggested, except the first hole where it was a little soggy around the pin - the rest of the green was bone dry! It's not overly long, around 5900 yds off the yellows, but for my standard it is a good test of golf. (I've only been playing for 5 months) Membership I thought was very reasonable - there was different types £480 for 7 day membership, £120 for club membership (you get £7 knocked off when you play)
Overall I think it's a good friendly course.

Firstly, it must be acknowledged that our small society managed to play 27 holes on 2F1 for £10 each. However, in our 10 year history, it is one of the very few local courses we have not played, and having now been, it will be another 10 years before we return. As with other reports, the course was relatively well maintained, but it was boring, lacking in character and features. The back 9 is slightly more enjoyable than the front 9, but even so, a forgetable experience. The food wasn't up to much either. If I'd have thought they could have done better second time around, I'd have sent my meal back. If all you want to spend is a tenner, fair enough. But you get what you pay for.

Played on a society day (group of 12)
Well maintained course, flat open fairways, some side by side, meant you can open up and not get punished too badly, good large true greens, quite a few bunkers to avoid. A good challenge for a mid handicapper.
Friendly staff, nice clubhouse, excellent food and beer good value.
Everybody had a good time, would play it again.

What a great course, quite demanding with some tough holes. For middle handycappers most holes are a test and need consentration. Some great approach shots to the greens. Overall the course is very well kept, and for a change the greens run true. Well worth a visit.

Due to changes in the course layout, the Stroke Indexes have changed.
Overall a good all weather course, with a mixture of holes, which offer variety and a decent test of golfing ability.
Worth a visit

This may not be the toughest course I have ever played, but I think it is one of the more enjoyable. So much so that our golf society has adopted it for our final and tournament event in the last couple of years and for the foreseeable future.
It is nice and open with some wide fairways which always seem to be kept in good condition. The greens are good and true, there are some quite challenging holes interspersed with some less demanding ones. Possibly a really low handicapper might not find it hard enough but for most low/mid handicappers and above this will be a good day out. The reception at the clubhouse is excellent as is the excellently priced grub. Well worth a visit
