    The Club was established in 1929 and was originally a 9 hole course. In 2005 the original course was extended to 18 holes. The course is a challenging test of golf with the new front nine holes being open scenic layout with superb greens.

    The back nine holes – the originalcourse – are much tighter holes with tree lined fairways and with equally superb greens.

    The Club House has excellent catering and bar facilities and both visitors and societies are most
    welcome.

    Played here for the first time in a few years in the recent BGA comp. Not a lot has changed since my last visit. The clubhouse is still very dated and the practise facilities are pretty poor.
    The course itself is very good though, its only short but still a decent challenge. Especially the greens which were true with plenty of movement in them so those who cannot read greens may struggle.
    Always enjoy playing here its just a pity the clubhouse and practise facilities arent up to standard

    This was my second visit in the past 12 months, a lovely hidden gem of a course with a 90 deg dog-leg par 4 4th as it's signature hole, if you have the bottle and hit big you can go for the green!!
    Some very interesting holes especially the 'Triangle', consisting of 10th (Par 3), 11th (Par 4 dog-leg) and 12th (Par 3).
    The club house is welcoming and everyone is friendly, with superb food served, but could possibly do with a little updating.
    The pro shop is the smallest i've ever come across (closed on Fridays) but it is well stocked and the professional is very friendly.
    This course is very well worth a visit if you are not travelling to far, I will be back.

    Never played here before. Charity 4 ball day. Was invited. Was glad I came. What a great little course. Not the longest but still a full challenge.
    The course was in great nick. Greens true and slick. Nice roll. Bunkers well sanded and raked (not that I was in any Lol).
    Bacon butties/chips etc were of a good standard. Don't know how rest of the menu will be but probably will be good.
    Looking forward to coming here again. A delight.

    Played on Friday 15th April T time 3.00pm and it started to rain. All T boxes open and in good nick some fairways were a little wet and were on preferred lies.The greens were good and will get better when we do at last get some good weather. I would recommend a round you won't be disappointed.

    Only a short course but certainly makes you think on the way round. No flat greens on the course so not as easy as you might think being only 5600 yards off yellows.
    Downside is the poor practice facilities and the club shop wasnt even open on a friday.
