Course Review and Comments

I felt the course was tightly packed especially around the 14th green or 12th tee or 15th tee. Trying to take a piss there was almost impossible!

The 1st, 13th and 18th hole are also a nusience as many poor golfers playing from the wrong fairway holding up tee shots and vice versa.

Walking down the 13th a ball came across the back of where i was walking, Plenty of trees to cover me from view and i now have added a nice callaway to my collection!

Greens are not the biggest and not in great shape at the moment but it is early season.

No water in ball washes, i used a towel to clean my but having shaved them just before i left the house they were in not to bad nick. A wee bit of sweat but not too bad!

Clubhouse i need not expand upon just very disappointing given this is a new build.

Read previous reviews and yes many positives for this wee course but cannot disagree with many of the previous comments especially around facilities and price. I was on free but my friend also believes his membership is inflated for the facilities and if it was not for it being on his doorstep would not join.

Too many woman and kids on the course and a great big tree in the middle of the 4th fairway which is mental, tiger woods would not get round this!

A few blow hards on the committee asking me to join and saying its the greatest wee club in the area, they really need to get out much more and visit.

Course Design Rating
Course Design Comments Many holes run pararell and at times many people playing on the wrong fairways which i found to be dangerous.
Playing up the 12 i had a ball land on the tee i was teeing off from, a pro v 1 i might add and it is now nicely tucked up in my bag i believe the golfer could still be searching for it.
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Rating
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Comments Course looked good for the time of year, greens were bumpy but to be expected at this time of year.
Course Service Rating
Course Service Comments Not pleasent and very unfriendly. Appeared more interested in talking about previous nights tv show. Never the less i was there to play golf.

Was asked did i want a dhss buggy followed by or a shinny arse buggy. I am perhpas not young in my years but no need to make comments. I had my own buggy and was asked to check your not one of these people who dig up the course spinning the wheels.
Course Facilities Rating
Course Facilities Comments Very disappointed with what my friend explained was a very new build. He is also disappointed but plays the course for the fact he lives nearby. Very poor facilities.
