We played on first the Hunting course then the Priestman course. The first round took 5 1/4 hours and the second took 5 hours. The course was so overbooked that there were 12 of us waiting on some tees. Societies were allowed to play off...More

Hunting course very average. Nearly every green was in poor condition especially for a course like this. Be prepared to be swamped with miggies.

Hunting course very good and picturesque. Good greens and fairways. Priestman course very disappointing. Fairways fine but greens diseased making putting impossible. Needs sorting as most packages inc 2 rounds on that course and only 1 on Hunting

Came to play golf on 27th November, couldn't use a buggy that came with the lodge as it was to wet, so hired an electric trolly at £15 which I thought was a bit much. On with the golf, wet and windy for first 4...More

Two great courses. Play these regularly and never disappointed. Got a free upgrade onto the hunting last time out also. It's reasonably priced and always in great condition
