Pros: Best course in the UK (currently)
The course was planted with holes in mind and the course has now grown into itself and Dereks dream and original design has pretty much come to fruition with a couple of great additions.
2 new holes were added in the woods in 2011 and the championship course is now a very tough par 57 that plays to an SSA of just over 55. It's tough for even the best.
There are 4 course layouts including a fun yet challenging short 16 hole course which is perfect for beginners and those trying to hone their short games
Well stocked disc shop on site and helpful staff members around
Beautifully looked after course
Cons: Prone to flooding on the bottom fields, but only after very heavy rainfall.
A couple of holes can get very muddy even in the height of summer.
Not signposted from the main roads
Other Thoughts: Great place to play, and a beautiful place to visit with the Avon river winding its way through the course. It is pay to play but definitely worth the money. The best course in the UK and previous host of British Opens, it hosts regular Britih tour events and competitions. Well worth a trip if you are visiting the UK.

Pros: This the best course in England. With tees, disc shop, refreshments, cut grass month, employees to trim, and random locals helping out.
Cons: nettals (can not be avoided in the English country side) (random people talking about the 'Long Very LONG' walk between 16 and 17) its like 50 meters with maps and signage.
Other Thoughts: After 18 years, with the same holes 3 new ones come along all in the same year. We have done this by cutting out some new holes in the woods, making for some 'real' tunnel shots. that and the combination of 6&7 making for a 'real' par 4.
hope you all enjoy.

If you`re lucky you get to play with the former British Champion and World Class Player Derek Robins
Pros: great course, designed and built by derek for a very challenging round of disc golf. a wide variety of lengths, obstacles, elevations, make each hole unique.
Cons: hard to find.
Other Thoughts: you might get to throw a round with derek, where else can you play with a World Champion most any day.

Two tees (synthetic grass) per hole. Easy-to-follow flow (except for finishing 16 requires a "long" walk back to parallel hole 17).
Map/scorecard discs, drinks, candy, etc. available at on-site shop.

/ should provide you with any information you might need.
Favourite hole #7: 260' to the basket, sitting on a left-to-right slope. OB hedgerow/farmland closing in from the left, the river directly behind the basket and to its right, with a breeze coming down the river into your face. A very typical throw is to head straight for the river, and have it fade towards the basket - and hopefully stick nearby, and not roll down the slope!
Its in England, which is beautiful and a wonderful place to visit, but unfortunately doesn't have many disc golf courses, so play those that you can find! Near Warwick Castle, a popular tourist destination.
Pay to play. Not open daily - check webpage or call.
With the river coming into play on a few holes, and a thick hedgerow between the course and OB farmland, there is some chance to lose a disc.
Being next to a river and below farmland, the ground can be quite wet in places, especially #5!
Shortest hole is about 230', longest around 325'. Average length from Blues is about 300'; Reds average near 275', and cause some (not all) obstacles to be missed, too.
Course is mostly flat and open, with some trees used to create narrowing gaps. Small OB clusters of plants/trees also used to make approaches more difficult.
Ground will typically be soft, so don't plan on long skip-shots :-)

Pros: This is a beautiful course specifically crafted to give a challenge to players of all levels. With 18 holes all par 3 there are plenty of chances to Birdie and OB. The couse is fairly open for the benefit of new players with a good mix of risk and reward for the more advanced players who are gunning for under par.
Cons: The course lacks a little distance. The course is on a river flood plain so the back 9 is occasionally waterlogged. Its fairly easy to get 'comfortable' playing this course, as it lacks some killer holes.
Other Thoughts: If it has rained recently take wellies, and a disc retriever. Dell Robbins (Course Pro and Owner) is an excellent ambasador for the sport and is always willing to show newbies around. The couse is pay to play with some consessions, and an honesty box to stick your money in should no one be around.
All in all a very enjoyable course to play in the sunshine, and a tricky one in the wet and wind.
Now stop reading this and go throw!
