following my comments AUG 2015, I am pleased to report the work on improving the bunkers is now well underway, I say improving ? the fact is they have been dug out completely, bottomed with good drainage stone, and topped with good fine sand as bunkers should be, so its well done on that one. The fact is the course is improving all the time, the 18th hole is now finished, and its tricky green layout is ready to make a fool of you. if you are short of time,try the top ten holes for £11.00 excellent value for money.

To be honest Im a bit reluctant to share this golfing venue secret, why do I say this is because its not over crowded, or snobbish to new comers, its possible to turn up at short notice to get a good 18 hole game for only £15.00.
However you must accept the fact that it has not got the best access, car park or club house. what you do have is good friendly ground staff, who have turned this once old farm land into a very testing course with good fairways and holes of every degree of difficulty,( the only downside to the course is the bunkers, they need some new sand and improvements ) on the plus side on your way round you will find it hard not to linger viewing lovely country side around it . To end your visit go into the clubhouse bar and get a good warm greeting, have a drink of your choice, or if their is any left I recommend the home grown beetroot and ham cobs !! not even the top courses can beat them.

Don't take on board poor comments about this course. We played as a society in July and found the course in very good condition and challenging.The layout is very good the staff are very friendly and helpful, coffee is 75p beer is £2.25,what more would you want.Give it a try you wont regret it.

To begin i was looking for a club to join on a budget,firstly reading a lot of local course reviews online brierly was on the bottom of the list.
I gave it the benefit of the doubt,to my good fortune,what i found was a club working its nuts off to improve,great golf holes and a fantastic atmosphere in the club house,now I'm not saying it's the best club in the area and there are improvements to be made but no way does this club deserve it's poor reviews in fact the people who posted them need to wake up get off their ten bob millionaire high horses and praise the club and their staff for what they have achieved,i dare say how many bad reviews come from those who got there arses kicked by the long holes and great green designs . I joined as a member and look forward to wrestling this course in the summer.
Hats off to the owner and the staff

Being a returning golfer, from a long break, due to leg surgery, we were recommended this local course when we spoke of my troubles with the more, lets say "hilly" courses, which Derbyshire/Notts sadly has a lot of.
So upon arrival you will be forgiven for having a thought of "this looks poor standard", but whatever you do, do not let first impressions put you off, even the small temporary club house, and new work being carried out in no way convey's just how fantastic this course is.
This course is a gem, full 18 hole par 72 course, with superb mix of par 3, 4, 5 holes, the Greens are better quality than some much higher priced courses in the area, and provide a challenge.
The thing for me though, is the fact they allow you to do a kind of "mini" round, because, and this why I like it, the back 9, i will not lie to you is extremly challenging because of its very hilly contours.
However the front 9, well 10, (i'll come back to that) simply the best golf course for me in the area.
The price in midweek is an amazing £10, for full 18, but you can do what we do, and they even provide a scorecard to accomodate, and that is, play the first 9, and then the course design, can take you to play the 18th as a 10th hole, returning you to the clubhouse.
And what is better, you can play the first 9 again, after a pleasant drink.
One more great plus for this place, is the first tee, and the locals, it is a fun start , which can lead to some friendly banter, as there can be a few spectators watching your first shot, must say this was Very intimidating at first, however it can be a great fun way to start your round, and the locals and staff, are the most welcoming people I have seen at any course, made us feel like we had been coming for years.
The course does have proper clothing code, no jeans and smartness encoraged.
All in all, a superb enjoyable small or full 18 challenging round, which has fast become my favorite place to play..
Highly recomended.
