Myself and another 3 friends were able to get a golf outing booking during a regular King James golf tournament. We thought it was great that they were able to assist with this. The communication with Allan the match sec was excellent. I would recommend the course to anyone looking for a decent challenge. The course itself is quite short... More

Played here as part of a society and the course was in good condition but greens a little flat and slow. Getting to the course is a pain especially for older visitors as you need to carry your stuff up steps, across a bridge and then down other side, it takes about 15 mins to walk from public pay and...

We had a great day out. Played full greens although winter ones were in operation. Condition of the course was as expected. Members of the club - very friendly. Would come back in the summer. The course is about 10 min walk from the car park (pay and display), you have to climb up the bridge which may be a... More

Getting to the Course was the worst part with trying to get a trolley up and down the stairs by the railway line. The course was good and the food in the clubhouse was basic but good. We had a bacon roll and coffee to start and were well looked after by the members. I would go back.

had to walk over bridge to get to the golf club but was worth it. nice greens and a good length of 18 holer. The club house was friendly with a good atmosphere. If I lived here I would like to become a member.

Went to the 2 man texas scrmble 10th of August, worst trip ever. You need to park in a car park and take everything up steep steps, then walk a good 1000yds then take them down slippy steel steps so steep they are dangerous. Then you get to the shop and sign in and get handed a card with no... More

You need to do your homework before you go to this course. You have to cross the river on the rail bridge to the island in the middle. Lovely course and friendly clubhouse.

Getting to the course would be my only criticism of this course. The bridge is hard to climb and the walk a bit too long. However the course itself was great value for money on "try out Tuesdays" and the welcome was second to done. A fair test of golf for those who hit the ball straight and a real... More
