A pleasant afternoon...
Played here on route to the Manchester Golf Show and really enjoyed the walk. Firstly, we were warmly greeted in the Pro Shop and in the very traditional Tudor style Clubhouse and all the members we spoke to seemed friendly. Given the rain we have had over the winter we have all been used to playing off sodden ground, so imagine our surprise when we were given 'nicro mats' to carry on our bags... to be used when playing off the fairways!! Cumbersome at first maybe, but a great way for the course to maintain the quality of the fairways - and these fairways were as good as I've played anywhere this winter(I even saw a ball bounce on the fairway!). At first glance the course doesn't seem particularly challenging but it has some long holes and whilst fairly flat, there is enough to challenge all levels of handicap. The greens were in good condition and I suspect would be very quick come June. All in all a great afternoon's golf and a course I would look forward to visiting again! :-)
This is a must play course in my eyes, why? Because of its quality.
I have played more interesting courses but the quality of fairways and greens was top notch.
Club House was well set out with an old traditional feel, what i call a real golf club.
