The Course

After playing the 3rd hole proceed over the bridge to the 4th tee.
The 1st and 13th greens are separate, you must lift off if on the wrong green. Rule 25-3 applies.  
Please take care when driving from the 2nd and 13th tees as a bridleway/road crosses these fairways.
150 yard markers are to the centre of the greens.
Greens staff working on the course have priority at all times.

Just a quick note to say the course was in superb condition last Sunday – 24th of May. The course as usual is a credit to all concerned and that once again we all thoroughly enjoyed the day.

Once again thanks to all concerned for a great day out.

What a splendid weekend I had even though I had no 2’s or hole in ones. All the team I encountered were helpful & friendly. Top quality course and greens, your green keepers must be very proud of the course. I loved the layout. Some beautiful holes has to be said. I can’t think if anything bad to say. Oh maybe I lost 1 golf ball. Weather was great, you must have ordered that.

I will hopefully play again next year. Thanks again for great time.

Just a quick email to say “thanks”… we had a lovely day (in spite of the inclement weather!!) our friends enjoyed your course as much as we did. We did sneak in the prizes at 5th… to many poor putts !

The food was delicious so praise to you caterers.

Hope to visit again next year.


Thanks to everyone at South Cliff for once again making us very welcome. The course was superb and all the lads enjoyed it.

Hope to see you again next May.
