Pros: real baskets (quite rare in UK at the moment) great for a swift round, easy to get around on the well kept rugby pitches
Cons: in a private school can't just rock up and play
Other Thoughts: great little course that I enjoyed playing even in the rain, cos the ground is well drained

About the Pitches
One of a few, permanent, basket-courses in the UK. Makes the most of what little elevation changes and obstacles available to it.
For the most part, wide open. A few of the baskets are quite near to the fences of private homes or a farm field.
Course plays around the edges and across well-maintained open spaces that are used as rugby pitches by a private school. The two pitches are separated by a short but steep slope, and the rightmost pitch has another short but steep slope on its far side. Baskets 1, 5, and 7 are located near the edges of the these slopes to provide added challenge, as are tees 6 and 8, to provide an elevated look to the basket.
Holes 2&9 do not have tee signs. For #2, I teed from underneath the goalposts. For #9, I simply teed for next to basket-8 - not correct, according to the map, but better to throw across the open space than walk halfway across then throw!
A rare place to play disc golf in the north of England. Definitely on the open and flat side, but better than nothing!
