First time in a long time that I've played my hometown course. 9 of us commenced play in an absolute downpour, that has flooded a few greens by the time we reached the 2nd green. Players in the club competition were walking off the course saying the greens were unplayable.
Within moments, the rain stopped, from then on, everything was fine, yes, a few problems with casual water on the greens, but nothing that was unsurmountable.
27 stableford points off a 9 handicap (me) won the day with 8th place coming in at 23 points.
The course is well designed and plays moderately difficult, especially difficult for novice golfers, as proved by our 9th participant who was playing his first round at a 'proper' course, scoring only 8 points from his 18 handicap.
The recent changes have taken away some of the challenges, most notably, the removal of the small copse to the right of the fairway on the 10th, formerly, it used to force you left and more often than not would end up with you having a long 2nd shot from the bottom of the bank because of the fairway falling away from you from right to left, or you'd overcompensate and end up in the heavy rough on the right. Now it's just aim for the flag and a straight shot will keep you on the right side of the fairway, leaving a wedge to the green. Excellent value for money and combined with the hotdeal, we all played for £15 each, definitely one to revisit when we consider where we're going to play next year.

Love playing here normally as it's a fantastic course and very local to me.
However on this occasion it was far to busy as I waited at the 1st for over 25 mins past my tee time as the queue was huge.
Very frustrating as this meant I was late for my work commitments after my round as all the way around course we were all backed up waiting to play most shots due to volume.
Would think again before using unless you have a spare 5/6 hours for a round.

Course was in very good condition, only thing that disappoints me about this course is holes 10-17 you suddenly become anxious about being in the firing line from overhead balls as most fairways are very close to each other.
Hold up at 14 which is common
Overall would recommend
