We found the course very enjoyable but several things made us think the people were not very friendly:- The restaurant staff were surly and their first interaction was to tell us that they had stopped serving hot food. The cold food was not that great to be honest - tuna sandwiches that were fairly tasteless. The four ball in front... More

What a place. From start to finish it was excellent! The greeting in the clubhouse was nice, not over friendly but nice. They stock some quality equipment also. We had the Woodall breakfast, and it was superb. £6.95 for a delicious breakfast, including 2 sausage, 2 bacon, black pudding, egg, tea and toast. Then the golf course (the Hotchkin) -... More

40 of us played here again 3 times , twice on the Hodgkin and once on the Bracken. Hodgkin is just world class , greens even in April in good condition. Bracken is good course and again greens were good. Worth a visit.

Excellent golf as ever combined with a lovely hotel. I went in a group of 8 to celebrate my 50th birthday. We all enjoyed the golf, even the cavernous bunkers on the hotchkin and upturned saucer green on the bracken!

The Hotchkin course is a real test of golf - the course is beautifully maintained but make sure you don't forget your sand wedge. Many of the bunkers are cavernous and capable of ruining a score. You are guaranteed to enjoy your round even if the course wins!

Played both courses as part of an annual golf tour,with a day elsewhere in between. Had a group chipping/bunker lesson at the Academy first, which proved very useful especially getting out of a monstrous bunker on the Hotchkin 5th hole to scramble my par. Our group ranged from 10-26 handicaps and all managed to get round playing off yellow tees... More
