    Not That Bad...I'd say it's actually not that good. Certainly it's on the short side for girls/ladies at just 5,200 yards from the red tees with four par 4s of less than 300 yards and the par 3s are all under 140 yards. In fact the longest of the par 4s is less than 340 yards.. a drive of 270 yards and it's a flick from there to be honest. Hard to believe it's a par 71 as a par 68 is more accurate. Hard to recommend for serious players.

    Played in a dry spell in March so course not at its best. Taking this into consideration, however, the course was in poor condition and didn't look likely to improve much in the better weather. Fairways were very muddy, greens bumpy and inconsistent and the general opinion of the group was good layout, but pretty scruffy. Not worth an expensive green fee.

    Greens are a bit bumpy and the drainage needs a serious examination, but the views and layout go a long way towards compensating for this.

    Very badly kept for a course which claims to be good. Inconsistent greens and scruffy aprons
