Attended the ladies pairs open on 24 September. The event was exceptionally well run with croissants and coffee on arrival. As a disabled golfer the staff went out of their way to be helpful both in parking my car and even bringing a golf buggy...More

We got a £100 fourball deal which was great. However, the standard price for visitors is £70'and that is poor value. Course was in good condition. Front nine is very good but the back nine is disappointing in particular the last three holes which could...More
