The golf course is a full-length course measuring 6,563 yards from the men's competition tees, laid out over gently undulating parkland with wonderful views on the back nine over the downs. The greens are of an exceptionally high standard and the whole course is extremely well drained and playable throughout the whole year. The front nine holes opened in May 1990 with the second nine opening in June 1991. The 6 hole par 3 course opened summer 2008. The Course was designed by Michael Morley and built to the best possible specification. The course has over 30 miles of underground drainage and each bunker has a drain underneath it, so even in mid-winter the bunkers are 'playable'. The greens are built on a 'stone layer' and the growing medium is 70% sand to allow for quick drainage and fine grasses.
