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

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.

Beautiful setting, relaxing hotel, excellent food, rooms needs a bit of a spruce up. Great for a weekend away, lots of local walks or relax in one of the lounges with open fire place and good book.
