In its short history the Course has been developed in 1994, designed by Arthur Spring and redeveloped in 2004, design by Roger Jones. The course is a visual treat, a test of skill and shot making for all golfers. The varied directions of play and the different length of approach shots ensures that golfers will use most of the clubs in the bag during a round.

 

The Course has matured into a parkland style with water coming into play on many of the holes. The natural springs channel streams through the course providing a steady flow to a series of mini lakes. A par 72 men, 73 for ladies it measures 6133 metres (6707 yards).

 

A members owned club, the course offers full practice, chipping, putting and driving bay facilities with resident PGA Professional to enhance your experience. Our clubhouse allows you to relax before or after a round.

 

Welcome and enjoy your golf.
