How much does it cost?
£6 for adults for the full size 18 hole course or £10 for whole day. Children and full time students pay £4 for a round or £6 for the day. Alternatively there's a short course with 16 holes of shorter distance which costs £5 for adults and £3 for children and full time students

Can I pay by card?
Yes, we can usually take payment by credit and debit card, although the machine requires a phone signal, which is not totally reliable.

Do I need to bring a disc?
No, the green fee includes use of one disc per person.

Is there a group discount?
No, but where possible, we do try to deliver a bit more in terms of introduction and coaching

Do I need to book?
We have not yet got to the stage of booking tee-times. If by chance the first hole is busy, then it's easy enough to start on a different hole. If you have a large group of say 10 or more, it's good to let us know, just in case several large groups all pick the same time to arrive. We will also know to have sufficient discs ready to borrow. If you need an introduction to the sport and you are arriving at an off-peak time, then drop us a line so that we can ensure someone is on hand to help.

Is the course closed for any events?
We generally have 2 tour events when the course is closed to casual play for the weekend. In 2016, the Quarry Park Open takes place on July 23/24th. We may have some smaller events, but these should be able to run alongside casual usage.


What Facilities do you have on site?
There is: - a Pro Shop with hundreds of discs in stock, as well as bags and other accessories; a field shelter which has approx 6m by 4m of cover; a chemical loo; picnic benches; plastic chairs.

What refreshments are available?
We sell water, cans of soft drink, and some confectionary.

Can I bring a picnic or BBQ?
If you are paying the day-rate (£10) then yes, and if you want to have a BBQ then you need to pay the day-rate. If you are just bringing a few sandwiches and a drink to sustain you before/during/after a round, then that's fine too. If you want to enjoy a picnic in the nice surroundings and use the car park, benches, waste disposal, recycling and toilet and not even pay for a round, than that's not cool.

For what age range is it suitable?
At the lower end of the spectrum, attention spans vary, but as a rough guide we would recommend 8 and up. At the other end, the world championships has a division for people aged 70 and over.

What should I wear?
The setting is more countryside than croquet lawn. In the winter months we would suggest walking boots or even wellies. At other times of year, trainers may be fine, but it depends on recent weather and which holes you play. The 5th hole is squidgey at the best of times. Trees and shrubs are the main obstacles, and you may have to venture into bushes, so delicate or white clothing would not be wise. Venture off the fairway and you can find nettles, so socks or trousers can help.

How long does it take to play?
A group of 4 adults of average ability should allow 2 hours to play the 18 holes. It can take considerably longer if the group is large and/or people lose discs. The short course should take less than 1hr 10mins, again depending very much on group size and ability, it's quite feasible to get round in under 1 hour.

How long are the holes?
On the full 18 tees the holes are mostly 70 m to 100 m long, red tees are about 10m shorter than blue tees, and there is a even a "black" layout with holes up to 150m. On the short course, the average hole length is just under 50m.

Are complete beginners welcome?
Yes certainly! This is a new sport for most people, so we expect most people to be beginners.

Will someone show us how it's done?
Yes, there is nearly always a member of staff on hand during opening hours, and whoever is on hand will be happy to show you the basics. As there is usually only 1 person on duty we can't guarantee to give you our undivided attention for very long, if there are other customers waiting to be served.

Can I phone up?
Derek's mobile is 07780727921 but please use this sparingly, and don't be surprised if there's no answer. Derek has a part-time day job and during those working hours he has to concentrate on doing the work he is paid for. Whilst at the course calls are often missed, especially if Derek is operating machinery which drowns out any ring tone. I know it's not ideal if you want quick answer but please use e-mail or text messages if you can't find the necessary information on this website.
