There are competitions every week, of which a high percentage are handicap qualifiers and various social nights throughout the year.The course is normally restricted to members on Saturday mornings for competitions. The course is open from 8am till dusk and all visitors are welcome but we do ask that all consideration is given to the other common users.
We have a old wooden pavillion clubhouse with a bar and function room, mens and ladies changing rooms. We do have social events at the clubhouse including a Presentation night and Summer disco.
We play on a nine hole inland links type course with 9 casual mens tees, 18 competition mens tees and 9 ladies competition tees. Although we have no bunkers or water on the course we do have very small greens, lots of out of bounds and even more gorse, which many shots are played over!
The competition tees are par 68 with a sss 66.
