Just spent a 2 day break at this course.
The course is undergoing major reconstruction. All the bunkers have been dug out and are now just holes in the ground surrounded with mud. The greens are diseased and poorly maintained, making putting a complete lottery - one of the greens even had large tractor tyre marks across it. Most of the fairways had large holes and open trenches. In places it was dangerous walking between the holes because of large holes. You will never get a buggy around the course, because of the holes and trenches.
The half way house is very good with a selection of snacks and drinks.
In 12 months time, with the necessary maintenance, this will be a very good course. But it is not at the moment. Andrew West May 15, 2006
This hotel and course has under gone a £ £7 million pound re-vamp and is in fantastic condition.
The 4 star hotel is a great place to stay while enjoying what must now be the best course in the Midlands.

Played the course a fews days ago, still little better than in 2006. Greens in a very poor state. Previous reviewer must have been a staff member or played a different course! If you want to play golf go elsewhere - another few years and with some money spent it could be ok. George Rushgrove May 8, 2008
A nice well laid out course with a good mixture of holes. A nice welcome from the Pro who had earlier rang me to say that the greens where still dressed for the winter and he wasn't wrong. Most where covered in brown sand so putting was a waste of time really. Although the greenkeepers had removed it from some and those greens where ok as they'd just started to cut them as it had been a dry and warm week. A course where you can get the driver out as there isn't too much trouble here apart from fairways lined with mainly smallish trees. Good bunkering makes you think a bit off the tee though. Reminded me of the Emerald course at Hill Valley but not as good. I would like to play this course in the summer just to see what the greens are like then. Was worth the £10 green fee but would've been disappointed if i'd paid anymore just because of the state of the greens. Lee Schofield March 23, 2009
