    Seven of us booked the Sunday Stayover,18 on Sunday,3 course dinner,twin room,breakfast and another 18 for £99.
    First impressions of the hotel were good with friendly staff and ample parking.We'd booked a 1.30pm tee off but the pro said we could get off earlier if we wished which again was good.The course was in good condition,mown fairways,rock hard but they're all like that at the moment,and tricky greens,consistent,fast and I just could'nt grasp them.Some really nice holes and 3 or 4 driveable if you're straight enough and a great clubhouse balcony overlooking the 9th and 18th.Fantastic food and service in the evening with a nice ambience about the place.
    Monday however was a different story.After a top breakfast we tee off again at 11.15.We had played 9 when we learned that the back 9 was all on temps as this was maintenance week.No one told us that when booking 2 months previous and no one mentioned it at all when we arrived on Sunday or Monday.We had a moan to the Management and after an hour or so we were compensated so it was all settled in a friendly manner.We were all disappointed though that the weekend ended in an anti climax.All in all though great value and we'd definately go back.

        This is a post script to my earlier review.
        It transpired that when I got home,the hotel had taken an extra sum of money from my credit card without my autorisation.Over a month on they still have yet to return my money and after countless phone calls and emails still havn't resolved the situation.I have had to cancel the card for security purposes and got third parties involved to get my money back.All in all,looking back,I got more trouble than I bargained for with us losing the Monday's golf (seven of us taking time off work)as well.To revise my review,check with the pro and the hotel prior to booking the state of the course,and pay in cash if possible at the hotel.Very poor show.

    A testing course with flags that hide from every angle! Short of providing a course guide the holes are an equal mix of tricky par 4's, nice long par 5's(two wood hits a must and be brave cut the corner on the long "back nine" par 5!) and illusionary 3's.
    Getting a good view of the hole can be hard work from most tees.
    The front nine in particular are like this and I can recommend taking / borrowing / hiring, a trolley for this course as it is undulating in an understatement.
    I played in the winter and it was in fine condition and a credit to the g-keeper.
    The clubhouse is very well presented and service is just as good as the food on offer.
    Doubtless I will return, with trolley! DO VISIT! A MUST PLAY.
