My friends and I played the first 9 holes and found them a variety of challenges. Beware of the rough at your peril. Don the owner was very accommodating and couldn't do enough to help.
Very relaxed atmosphere where 2 newcomers to the game could play without pressure.

Stilton Oaks is a wonderful course, which is divided into two halves, one standard flat 9 holer with enough challenge to keep it interesting, and the back nine going up, and then down the hill (wonderful views btw!). The rough is certainly that, we lost quite number of balls here! It is challenging and frustrating and yet wonderful!
Also, the welcome we received was excellent, with the greenskeeper taking time out to give us a little talk round the course and some helpful advice. I'm going again very soon! Adam Carter
I have been playing Stilton for about six months now returning to golf after a 20 year layoff.
When you look at the scorecard the course looks short and relatively easy, but ignore the long rough at your peril. As most people who play it know it falls into two different 9 hole courses. The first nine are short and flat with enough water involved to keep it interesting(8 par 4's 1 par 3). The second nine combine hills and water with great views(2 par 5's,6 par 4's and 1 par 3).
The whole course is very tight, benifitting the straight hitter, with only a few grassy bunkers (and the rough of course). There are a few hedges that come into play around the course with the "do I try to hit over them or go for the gap in them" scenario. Long hitters will be able to drive some of the par 4's.
The clubhouse is adequate having a small shop and toilets (but if you want to play golf not socialise afterwards this is your type of course !!!)
Overall this is a very new course that is a MUST to play offering great value for money as well as a challenge to golfers of all handicaps. Ian Worley
Fairly short flat front 9 with severe punishment for wayward
shots leads to a very demanding back 9. Superb views as you
climb the hill to the 10th green and when up there if the
winds blowing beware!! Nigel Smith
