I would say that in the context of the region , ie Gloucestershire and Wiltshire.... it is at the top of the list of courses in a region devoid of top quality golf.
The Cherington course is a links style inland course, fairly wide fairways and undulating greens, generally pitch it short to run up to the pins. All in its definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. It has 18 good holes but unfortunately nothing that you would call a signature hole. Drains very very well in winter and therefore a great all year round venue. Members are lucky to have this 3 course venue and as a members facility it is second to none, but on those golfing trips away with friends when you recite hidden gems or favourite courses, sadly it just misses the mark. One thing that could make this course really stand out would be to do something with either the 5th and 7th (par 3's that are remarkably similar to each other) and 8th and 11th (par 4's which are remarkably similar to each other) if money was spent to make 2 of these holes into "signature holes" you would have a truly destination course.
