Course Review and Comments

I was directed to the course reviews as they are the talk of the place just now. Agree in some way with every comment posted and interesting to see how visitors view the club.

As far as I can see everyone has agreed that the course is great (apart from no par 5) I would agree with everyone this is a great course and can be testing.

The condition and design of the course is magic and cannot be faulted.

Now the design of the new clubhouse on the other hand can. The one urinal is correct and I can see why people think that as that is the toilets in the actual changing facility and I think that is what the visitor was referring. Never seen people pee in the showers possibly as I am a member and know there are other toilets just outside the changing rooms although these are the lounge area toilets, I can see why people would not access them until they were changed.

Price is very expensive for the facilities but as Robert said we know why albeit do not fully understand why given the money raised through access and sell off of old club and the fact the price does not include a locker, practice area etc.

For me the price is not a major issue but can see why in this economical climate it is for some. We do need to get rid of this we are too good attitude or all of a sudden with one bad growing season we could be in a similar position to a club not so far away so crowing about how we are great is not good, listening to what people have to say matters and can help us grow as a club.

Staff etc are for me very welcoming but as I say I am a member.

Finally I think everyone’s views should be taken on board and as a club use comments as constructive rather than attack people who dare point out some small negatives.

We know the price, lack of practice area, not enough lockers per member and new clubhouse are not ideal it is what we do going forward that will keep us ahead of the game.

Being flexible and adapting in our approach in this economic climate will help attract and sustain people.
