Whilst whipsnade is a great venue for golf it is also a tough trek, the rough is so punishing and rightly so. Lovely peaceful place next to the zoo, listen out for the elephants, and if you like birds, there are plenty of buzzards and red kites to view whilst between holes.

Staff friendly, course well kept, greens good, bunkers not all great

Overall decent course, I just thought it a little bit dull.....no hole really stood out thinking back on it.

However wouldnt want to knock this course, they look after it well.

Really enjoyed our round at Whipsnade. Nice mix of hole layouts, excellent fairways and greens and we motored round in just over 3 hours on a quiet Monday afternoon.

Beautiful course in really great condition and where else can you see Wallabies just roaming around on the course (in the UK at least!?). Right next to Whipsnade Zoo so you get to hear the lions too. There are some really good holes and it's quite open too although there were definitely a couple of holes that i would have benefited from knowing a little better (took too much club, hit a good shot and got blocked out because of a dogleg - 16th i think for sure).

Very friendly too. All in all really good

The course is in good condition even after a day of heavy rain however we got stuck behind a two ball which held us up as we had to wait long time to play each shot once we was let through got stuck behind another two ball so it took 4.5 hours to do 18 holes was not impressed with the speed of play.

We played Whipsnade as a birthday treat for myself, a surprisingly fairly flat course considering the surroundings I was extremely surprised to be teeing off at midday with nobody in front of us at all.

A well maintained course, a challenging test which rewarded good shots.

We agreed that it was good value for money and would look to revisit again.

The only downside was the standard of bunkers were not in keeping with the rest of this course.
