Course okay for the money - fairways tight, greens small - trying to stop a ball on the greens a no no - too hard. Pro just been 'canned' from the club - all i need to know - i wont be joining thank u.

To begin i was looking for a club to join on a budget,firstly reading alot 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)...is 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..
