Course Information

The Blakes Championship course, designed by renowned course architect Howard Swan, is best described as an inland links. The layout and undulations of the course are totally unique to the area with rolling fairways and sleepered bunkers giving the feel of a traditional seaside links. A unique drainage system involving a grid work of gully pots positioned on all fairways, USGA standard sand based tees and greens enable the course to be playable in all conditions. Full computerised fairway, tee and green irrigation enable all areas to remain green and lush should there be a lack of rainfall. Tees and greens have been constructed to a size that will mean that the use of temporary greens and mats as teeing points will not be necessary.

    I enjoyed this course- slow play

    Don't head here in a hurry, with the course down the road closing a few weeks ago they have had an influx and they are unable to cope. Other than that I really enjoy this course, best greens I have played over winter, can be a tough course in the summer with hard greens.

    An absolute steal for £15

    Played in the pouring rain, which meant that we pretty much had the course to ourselves. Very open and forgiving course - wayward drives just go onto the neighbouring fairways and there is very little in the way of long rough. There was a fair amount of standing water, but that was to be expected given the amount of rain. Greens played very well despite the weather. In short, can't really complain for £15. This is a fun course to play with some interesting holes.

    A little gem!

    Really surprised by the course as I have meaning to try the course for quite a time now. The greens were good and challenging and the fairways well kept so any balls off the fairway were found easily. The course will improve as the weeks progress and the Spring brings better weather. In a nutshell, really enjoyed the round and I will be back soon.

    Good layout but poor greens and fairways

    Interesting course and long enough to be challenging for even long hitters on some holes especially if the wind picks up. The greens where in poor condition and seemed to have some disease [loads of moss growing]. Plagued by inconsistent role of the ball, some greens extremely slow due to not being cut or roled enough and fairways not cut short enough. The bunkers did have sand in them but very low quality and lots of stones which was enough to force a drop outside of the bunker. If the course was slightly better maintained I would recommend it however it was not in the condition one requires to have an enjoyable round.
