This a Harold Hilton designed golf course in a wonderfull mature parkland setting. The course is in excellent playing condition throughout the year and has recently invested up to £100,000.00 in new greens to improve the drainage. I played this course quite recently and i would not hesitate in returning in the near future. The 19th hole is also very special and all staff made my party very welcome after the golf.

I used to be a member of the club, and still play there fairly regularly...
The course is quite short at Par 69, but well laid out with some narrow fairways, brooks running through the fairways and some tree hazards just where you don't want them - perfect! The course itself is a nice strole away from the noise and bustle of roads. It's not very hilly but there are some holes that have the green and approach fairway raised to make you think about your second shot. The layout of the course has the first 8 holes on one side of the road, then you cross over for the 9th to 17th holes, and then cross back again to complete the 18th which brings you nicely back to the 19th for that cold beer and a chat over what went wrong (or right)!
Some holes, especially on the back nine are made for the long hitters, especially the Par 5 16th, so if you feel you've not quite done the business on the front nine then with the right attitude you can get your score down on the back nine.
The front nine are designed for more accuracy than distance, but if you've got both then your approach shots can be easier. There are some neat and tidy Par 3's at the 5th, 7th and also the 12th being a favourite of mine with a downhill look at the green and three bunkers on the left hand side of it.
A couple of nice but accurate Par 4's are the 8th and 13th. The 8th is a slight dog-leg to the left with a tree positioned right in line with the fairway from the tees, but if you have the confidence then hit a 3/4 quarter swing 3 Wood over it and land nicely in the middle ready to appraoch the green for a chance of birdie. For the 13th you have a downhill fairway to the brook running across it and then it climbs up and to the right to the green, with trees further to the right not allowing for you to cut it. A full 3 Wood here gets you over the brook and ready for a lovely 9 iron chip or maybe a lofted PW onto the green.
For more of a challenge of the course try going off the White tees, on some holes they really lengthen and make tricky the hole where as on others they don't make too much of a difference.
The course has changed a little in the years that i've played there, and for the better. It's maintenance has got better and better and some holes changed to give something different. You might find some bunkers a little hard to get out of as they've gone hard. The greens are smooth and some have some nice dips running across them like on the 5th, 13th and 15th.
Altogether it's a nicely shaped and thought out course, you should try a round here and you'll like the way the course is different from front nine to back nine.
