Went to the peacock restaurant for a nice meal! Bar staff were very welcoming and service was great. But I was very appalled by the language I heard coming from the kitchen!

Very poorly run today.

Booked a round today (29/08/2020) and walked off after the 5th hole as it took just over 2hrs to get this far, there were some very slow player's in front of us and at one point we had to wait for 7 minutes to play our third shot into the 2nd green. Staff where nowhere to be seen and should be checking the pace people are playing and warn them for slow play. I am a member of a club in Wiltshire and I have never seen play so slow even the ladies behind us couldn't believe it. Avoid booking on weekends at least.

If you love the 1970's this is the place for you....

Driving through the estate you will have high hopes, however don't be deceived. The service harks back to the 70's, not a problem if you like to be handed a grubby stained paper token to go and get your carvery, even better to be laughed at when you ask for a vegetarian option... 'sorry that needs to be pre-ordered by phone' (even though the website states veggie options available), and then enjoy eating your limited meal in a dated dining room with no air con. Maybe I'm missing something and this really appeals to you, but personally I would say don't waste your money....

Disappointing
Mar 2019 • Family
Having rung up to book a tee time, I mentioned that Teeofftimes website were offering a round cheaper, they then offered a discount.

When we arrived they said that the tees were temporary mats. What I didn't expect was to play half a golf course, one of the tees was 150 yards down the fairway making a mockery of a par 5, both of us birdied it - a drive and a wedge to the green.

The greens were poor, with mud from green-keeping machinery and bits of sand that made a straight putt something of a miracle.

As a reflection of some of the people that play on the golf course, the greens were pock-marked with pitch marks, I must have repaired about 3 or 4 on every green and on one green the flag was not replaced properly.

Overall, it was not a proper golf course and should not have been advertised as such.

When making the complaint as feedback, the proshop offered apologies and asked when we teed off, to give me some compensation, I simply said don't bother, as they needed all the money they could get to improve the course.

I've played there on and off for 15 years and I'm not sure I'll be going back in a hurry.

On a positive my son played really well and was 6 over par - his handicap is normally 20! That tells you something.

We popped in here as a stop gap before booking into the wedding venue in the park . Wow what a fantastically stunning place to just sit and watch the world go by. We sat and had drinks outside watching a group of young children going off to learn golfing . This park is vast with lakes scattered around . When you arrive you go through the park entrance and you need to go slow as there’s only room for one car and there are passing places . This park is well maintained .
We didn’t have food here but it smelt good and many people were eating. This is a very busy place to meet and people from our group went here early am to get breakfast in the mornings.

I have played here a few times and always enjoyed the experience. Front nine relatively flat with a bit of climb towards the end of the back nine.

Fantastic Course
Jul 2017 • Solo
Visitor to the area, with no prior knowledge I stopped in for a round in the afternoon.

Long driveway through the estate to get to the club, very impressive surrounding. The pro-shop is located within the bar and restaurant, didn't have time to stop in for after but it looked like a nice place for a drink.

Before the round stopped at their driving range. There is also a putting and chipping green. Nicely presented.

The course was excellent. Nice conditions which helps but it was well maintained and peaceful. Generally the holes are short and require good course management rather than ripping drives. Plenty of doglegs and blind greens.

At £20 for the round this is great value in comparison to other courses. Highly recommended for both new and experienced golfers.
