Review:

This was my first visit to the Manor House and given the recent spell of frustratingly wet weather the course was drier than expected. As mentioned in earlier reviews the routing leads to a few lengthy hikes from green to tee, some being severely uphill, but we did see numerous players who had chosen walk. Maybe there are a few holes that you would willingly chuck out but there is no shortage of character and due to the undulating nature of the land there are plenty of interesting holes and a handful of real Manor House Golf Course - Photo by reviewerbeauties. There are five par three's of which two are excellent. The pretty 2nd sits in the bottom of the valley, anything hit short or left will find the meandering river and the 17th, a cracking short downhiller is played to one of two small greens. You may only have a wedge in hand but both greens are well protected by the river running between them and across the front of the smaller and more difficult right one. Some of the longer holes are also influenced by the valley including the driveable risk and reward 8th where anything pulled left is dead. The 18th delivers a strong and potentially ruinous finish but my favourite hole would have to be the strategic par five 12th, a visually superb dogleg where the river, a lake and a nest of bunkers must be avoided before reaching the plateau green. The current winter rate offers pretty good value for one of the best parkland courses in the South West of England. Brian W
