A wonderful, mature course built on chalk, with tricky undulating greens.
The first hole is a 494 yard par 5. The fairway is wide, treelined, and uphill all the way. There are two bunkers about 100 yards from the green and three more around the green, the one front right is especially mean. The green is quite small, and as flat as they get.

A short par 4 comes next, 296 yards downhill to a large green. The fairway is wide with only a few trees around, but that is not to say this is an easy hole. The tee shot is blind, the green is raised and well contoured, and the ground falls away sharpely to the right and back, and there's a large green-side bunker front right. Did I say it's out of bounds both sides?

Hole five is a real challenge, 460 yard par 4, SI 1. Out of bounds on both sides, a blind uphill tee shot, the fairway then slopes downhill and heavily left to right. There are no trees to the left, if you try too hard to keep it on the high ground there's nothing to stop you going OB. The fairway narrows toward the small undulating green, and there are 4 bunkers between you and it.

The sixth is a 403 yard par 4, dogleg left, uphill then gently downhill. Although it's treelined there is plenty of room, aim for the conifer in the distance and let it go. After a reasonable drive you still have the dogleg to play, but the only thing marking the coner is a small tree with a walking stick. There are two bunkers short left of the small square green.

A great looking hole from the ninth tee, 382 yard par 4, slightly downhill dogleg left. There are four bunkers about 200 yards out angling away from you left to right, cutting the fairway in two. You must keep away from the left and take on the further bunkers. The fairway narrows to a green surrounded by undulating ground and three sand bunkers.

Ten is a very tough 424 yard par 4. You sometimes start from this hole.

Hole thirteen is good a test of accuracy, a 147 yard par 3 with a narrow raised green and five bunkers around the front.

The seventeenth is a great looking hole, a downhill 551 yard par 5. From the tee all the bunkers are in view, two on the right then four bunched between 104 and 110 yards from the green, and one more either side of the green. Another small green with sloping surroundings.

Eighteen is a good finish, a 390 yard par 4, the fairway widens at the apex of the right dogleg about 240 yards out. The best shot in comes from the centre of the fairway. There's one bunker short right, three further along on the left, and one more right of the green. The ground falls away sharply left and back.

An interesting, challenging and well cared for course with good practice facilities and a very nice club house and changing rooms.
