The course is a classic heathland layout with gorse and broom in abundance. The free-draining sandy soil ensures it is playable throughout the year and the small, testing greens have always been highly regarded. In the summer the premium is on accuracy and, when the fairways firm up, the 'inland links' character offers a unique challenge. Situated on a hill the wind is always a factor at Tadmarton, notably in the winter when the long par fours are a stiff test for even the longest hitters.
Practice facilities include a four bay covered driving range and ample irrigated grass teeing areas. Range balls are dispensed. The new short game area has a chipping green with practice bunker and a separate pitching green is playable up to 90 yards.
