This course proved to be a disappointment - the front nine is flat and uninspired, and although the tees and greens are excellent the fairways were unplayable, wet and very muddy – we looked as though we had been on a building site on finishing the round! Although the fairways were slightly drier and the holes more varied on the back nine we felt a little deflated afterwards. The clubhouse is smart but has a very corporate feel to it. This course would be a reasonable test given good drainage – although close to the estuary the land seems marshy in nature. I wish them well as the club are obviously keen and striving to improve – perhaps given time this will mature into a very good course.
