GOLF CLUB REVIEWS

17/10/2010 - Sent by Alex Stone
  This picturesque parkland 9-holer is best suited to the high handicapper / shorter hitter but a pleasant enough test for all. At just over 2200yds it comprises four par-4s all under 300yds, a single par-5 and four par-3s. You'll find bunkers on every hole, plus water coming into play on five. The fairways and greens are well kept, the latter offering good pace and variety including a couple of double-tier offerings.

The opening hole is a bland dogleg but the course improves thereafter, requiring teeshots over valleys on the 2nd, 3rd and 5th. The signature hole would be the par-5 6th requiring a well placed tee shot of some 200yds to reach the dogleg and give you the correct line for your second: over the pond avoiding the overhanging trees either side and the stream running up the left that crosses the fairway as you approach the green. The 8th and 9th need a few more features to emulate the previous holes though the 200yd par-3 closer is a good end to the test. This course does not require 200+yd drives on every hole but does need accuracy on most - a modest challenge for us mere mortals.

Facilities include a modern clubhouse with adequate changing rooms, a good sized bar area providing hot / cold food all day plus the usual refreshments.
