Golf Courses

Designed by Dave Thomas
Designed by Dave Thomas, renowned architect of The Belfry, this former Challenge Tour venue can provide a stiff challenge when played form the blue tees, at 7309 yards. The course can be enjoyed by the club golfer when playing from the white (6878 yards) or yellow tees (6566 yards). The beautifully manicured course blends perfectly with the wooded and undulating countryside.
