We are a secure environment and welcome spectators and children participating.


Please note: For Stag or Hen Group bookings we do not allow teeing off from parts of the body, this took effect 1 November 2017. A thing of the past that we know many enjoyed but it is a health and safety issue, there maybe a couple of images flloating around of this gimmick but should not be deemed that we are promoting it.  We have other Stag and Hen challenges so please enquire by sending us an email or feel free to swing by for a chat. 




We average a hole in one every 2 weeks
