“Over the hill”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

Once a lovely golf course, now sad and unloved. Too much emphasis on making money and none on spending it.

On the best day this year,the championship course was in great condition an otherwise good golfing day was spoilt by the Golf Centre Bar refusing to serve refreshment of any kind after 6 pm.

“Great Golf Course”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

These are excellent couple of golf courses with many memorable holes. They are in very good conditions and the sand in the bunkers is also very good. It is difficult, but not impossible, to loose a golf ball. The greens are slower that you would expect but very true. The rough is OK and it is easy to find your ball. The only problem is when you hit your ball behind a tree.
You can hire a locker for a couple of pounds which is good value.
It takes about 4 hours a round and the courses are undulating. It is not too strenuous to walk however they have about 30 buggies available to hire. The views are terrific and each hole is interesting. A few blind tee shots but you are aware of the best line to hit your ball. As visitors you play from the yellow tees but it is far harder from the whites.
I played with a Golf Society and I would definitely return.
