Experience our 18-hole championship course

Measuring up to nearly 7,000 yards, this par 73 woodland course has won critical acclaim for its challenging yet fair features. A flat course, it’s one of the best draining courses in the area, with a range of water features requiring careful thought and accuracy.

Up for a challenge?

The 3rd Hole (Par 4) is one of the most challenging holes at 452 yards off the yellow, 470 yards off the White, and 353 yards off the red. This hole needs two good hits to make a par or better.

The signature 13th hole (par 4) features a few strategically placed bunkers to challenge all levels of golfer! With water all down the left-hand side, it’s a tough driving hole - even hitting the fairway does not always guarantee a par.

The 18th Hole makes for a great finishing hole in front of the club house. This par 5 is well in range, though the water around the green makes the 2nd and 3rd shot a gamble. A risk and reward hole to finish!

Try your luck on our 9-hole Garden Course

Beginners can learn the ropes on our 9-hole Garden course, boasting perfectly manicured greens, tees and fairways.

This par 33 parkland course is a great addition for the beginner or accomplished golfer looking to improve. With tricky tee shots and undulating greens, this will always be an enjoyable game for all standards. The 1st hole is a testing par 5, with water affecting the tee shot and second shot.
