    This course provides an interesting layout and can be tricky in the wind. Greens were good but black and yellow flags need to change (can see them !). Members and staff very welcoming.

    this is a nice flat course,fairly straightforward holes as is the norm for most flat courses...but the thing that made this a course a bit special was the greens...not one single green was a straight putt,each one gives you something diffrent to think about when reading your putt,and the condition of the greens was simply a credit to the course and its ground keepers.facilities are good and shower facilities are available for after your round wich is always a bonous...i recomend this course largley due to its top class greens

    Played this course today, was thick fog when we arrived, booked in at pro shop expecting to pay £15 as that was price when booked online, only cost £10 as course was on temp greens. Found it difficult going to start with due to the fog, but once fog started to lift it was much easier to see were shots going and were the flag for the green was. Nice easy walking course, can't comment on green as we played on temps. Will be visiting again in summer as was impressed with the warm welcome and the facilities.

    Wasn't very impressed by the layout of the course, it seemed very boring. Greens were nothing special.
