Golf course is well maintained, front 9 follows the river, quite difficult but truly beautiful. Back 9 is more open but not without hazards. Played in the Autumn, quite wet but the trees looked fantastic.

Nice course. No two holes the same. Some really tough holes. Lots of water and ditches. Loved it. Changing facilities quirky too!

The course is in excellent condition. The front nine has a lot of water so you need to be accurate or expect to lose balls! The back nine is more woodland but you can still lose balls in the semi-rough as it sinks in! Greens...More

I played 2 rounds on a weekend away. The course had greens that were very true. From the whites the course was very demanding, but great fun nonetheless. One of the outstanding features of the course was the Dartmoor feel. Hole 10 felt like you...More

My wife and I played the course and found it in excellent condition and beautifully prepared. Greens were not too fast but this could have been because of a lot of rain the previous week. Fairways had almost no divot marks, either because they have...More

Super course. Front nine has lots of water and all holes are a bit different. Thoroughly enjoyed it as part of hotel break but £70 might be a bit steep for a day out.
