Our fast draining sub-soil helps to ensure, that we have very few days where we have to close the course. The course remained largely unchanged until in 1992, as a result of the construction of the A7 bypass, a considerable part of the course was lost, but five new holes were constructed on adjacent ground, providing a fresh challenge to members and visitors alike.
Currently the length of the course is 6172 yards with a standard Scratch of 70. Long renowned for the quality of the greens, the recent course reconstruction, increase in length and quality and definition of the fairways has provided a tough but fair test of golf to all levels of players.
A planned programme of maintenance and upgrading has seen the planting of several thousand trees to enhance and define fairways and hazards. Additionally,during 2000/2001, extensive drainage work was undertaken and has resulted in the course seldom being closed, at any time of the year, due to waterlogged ground.
In addition to the course, which offers a challenge to golfers of all handicaps, we have a friendly clubhouse, which offers a wide range of food and drinks, and changing and shower room facilities.
