Course Review and Comments

I am a member who pays £630 a year for as the previous reviewers rightly point out poor facilities that are priced at the high end of the market.

For this price i don't even get a locker.

The green keepers if you are unlucky or lucky depends how you look at it are peeing behind their portacabin.

My biggest issue is juniors are priced at £150 each when you consider orther more clubs are £75 which free clubs run by the pro like all the other prices are over priced.

Finally they have a new associate membership which is higher than local clubs full membership at £550. Rumour has it this was meant to be set at £500 but greedy officials ruled this out.

If you check the website this price is only £240 but as all the prices are mucked up we live in hope that they become realistic either by giving regular members value for money with better facilities or reduce the price to match the current facilities. Sadly i have been a member for many years and like silly football supporters will continue to pay this inflated price for worse facilities.

There are loads of woman members some very cheeky so with equality where do we members gain...... in an inflated associate A membership which is more expensive than decent courses full membership?

With the sale of a great old facility we expect better prices and facilities. Bring back some of the older members of the committee who know how to look after members and visitors.

I must add that i do not agree with what has been said about the chef or bar staff if it was not for there down to earth welcoming attitude this club would be worse off not better off.

Course Greens/Fairways Condition Comments Green keepers doing a good job in the circumstances with no facilities there work place is poor for this facility
Course Service Rating
Course Service Comments No issues with bar staff or green keepers all other staff and some members behaviour leave a lot to be desired.
Course Facilities Rating
Course Facilities Comments Very poor and agree with the visitors below, no practice area although we have been promised a driving range and agree with toilet and bar facilities being poor. Worse of all this price which the visitors point out is vastly over priced does not get you a locker.
