About the Course The course has been designed to flow with the natural contours of the land, the greens being constructed to USGA specification and strategically placed pot bunkers, St Andrews style double greens, water features make for an exciting layout and superb panoramic views...
The course has been shaped, to allow each hole to have an individual character with water and sand features coming into play and approximately 10,000 trees are being planted. The backdrop on one side of the course is a view looking out over the moors and the other looking over Plymouth and out to sea.

The course is, quite frankly, dreadful. I have played it regularly, unfortunately, since it opened and it seems to have gotten considerably worse rather than improved at all. The fairways alternate between clover, weeds and mud with rocks poking through. The bunkers are "filled" with construction standard silver sand (the cheapest possible) rather than quality sand. The greens are too firm, very patchy and pockmarked by pitchmarks all over. They neither chip nor putt well. The "water hazards" are an embarassment ... I have never seen hazards so poorly finished, with linings poking out all over the place and the large ditch between the 16th & 17th has nothing it it at all - it is just used as a rubbish dump. In addition, the course is very boringly designed - every hole goes straight up & down in the same/opposite direction over 2 large fields - like the middle 6 at Staddon Heights but for 18 holes! Finally, the course has not been built or maintained properly - there is virtually no topsoil over all the building rubble that was used to artificially construct the course, which has led to the fairways & rough being covered in clover, weeds and thistles etc., while the rough is never cut, just left to grow wild and any ball running off the slopy, bare fairways is virtually impossible to find.
There are so many better golf courses in and around Plymouth & Devon - do yourself a favour, play anything else, even if it costs you a couple of pounds more ... it will be well worth it.
