Been here many times but first time this year. Probably my favorite course and the conditions of the course didn't disappoint once again. Fairways, greens and bunkers in perfect condition. Everything was set perfect only for me to have my worst round of golf I can remember. I should of jumped on the back of one of the donkey sized hares and rode it back to my car. Everything was made worthwhile though when I spotted a kingfisher fishing in the pond beside the 16th fairway.Not an everyday sighting, well not for me. Only downside was I overheard a member complaining that non-members were being allowed to play whilst they were playing. You would have thought that by now the members of private golf clubs would have realised that societys and internet bookings keep there annual fees from spiralling out of control. Some people will never change eh. Couple of tips for anyone considering a game here, and your really should if you get the chance. The rough looks inconspicuous but is very dense. You won't always be able to get your second shot to the green. The greens are deceptively firm also. Lush green to look at but a devil to land and keep your ball on the green. I try and land it on the apron and let it run on. The better golfers will be able to spin and hold but thats not me. Book a round here, you won't be dissappointed.

A challenging and interesting course with excellent greens. Play was a little slow as people seemed reluctant to let others through but course was in great condition and staff were helpful and friendly.

Was looking forward to playing green drive and it started quite well. The guy who met us on arrival could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Then we got in the course. Without question the flattest course I've played on and to be fair it was in excellent condition, but, even on a warm sunny afternoon it was relentlessly dull. Hole after hole after hole flat straight featureless. Even on the journey home I struggled to differentiate one from another. Boring. Couple that with several extraordianiraly slow 4 balls and some old school snobbish elitism that I thought died out in the 80's and it made for a very disappointing day that I wouldn't want to repeat.

The course is a very pleasant one to play when the weather is nice and the ground is fine underfoot, but the day we played it was very damp and balls were being lost on the fairway as they were totally plugged. We were also informed when we arrived that 2 of the holes were closed which was something we were not advised off at booking.
In truth it wasn't really playable.
