Review:

Stayed and played here recently for a 1 night break - big mistake.The golf experience is pretty awful from start to finish. When you arrive you have to park in the middle of a muddy field - the only hard standing car park is reserved for the poor members. Refreshment in the club house was extremely limited and very expensive. They had no scorecards - we had to make do with a photocopy. Then you make your way to the course. The first 3 holes are a pretty good example of what is to come - essentially lots of bland, featureless holes on a very poorly maintained track. Tees were covered in moss, fairways not well maintained, what bunkers there were in poor state etc. The greens were Ok apart from the multitude of pitch marks that had been left unrepaired. there are a few nice holes - 5, 6 and 13 come to mind but beyond that all very unforgettable. Eventually you arrive at the 18th which has the claim of being one of the straightest holes in golf - it is also probably the most boring! Around 600 yards of arrow straight, very wide fairway, not a single bunker and a flat green at the end - very dull. The hotel was good enough, and the food was also OK, but we won't be returning. Possibly the dullest golf course I have ever played.
