Came here with Great Expectations, left with A Tale Of Two Courses; the one we played, and the one it might have been. Had the course coped with the prolonged dry spell better I could have forgiven the bland nature of the terrain. As it was, a forgettable experience. Great greens, but not enough in other areas to justify the green fee
A great links in great condition, the best greens I’ve ever played on . Could do with more yardage markers
Great Club and Course
Course was great, the greens were brilliant - rolling fast and true. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food and drinks were good quality and great value. Can't fault it!
Not all driver
Greens absolutely mint for time of year always a pleasure to play
From the opening shot, which had the boys on the terrace clapping, to the final putt it was excellent. Very friendly welcome in both the pro shop and the bar.
We caught the course on a sunny but breezey day but the wind just added to the overall experience
Ashburnham Golf Course is a true test of golf and a hidden gem.
Ashburnham is a true links course with a real eclectic mix of golf holes. The course starts with a down hill Par 3 from the club house to test anyone's first tee nerves. The second hole runs parallel with the club house in the opposite direction with a strong par 4 that rewards a well struck mid to long iron. The third starts what is a series of challenging holes into the prevailing wind. With the highlite being the tough Par 3 6th sat amongst a sand dune.
The course follows the shore line which is rarely in view as the holes are set in the sand dunes.
The Par 5 8th hole is a risk and reward dog leg that a good drive can set up a chance to go for the green in two. A well guarded green with well positioned bunkers mean you will have to be accurate. The course then turns back towards the club house following the shore line once more. The 9th hole a dog leg Par 4 with well placed fairway bunkers to disuade you from cutting the corner to allow a shorter second shot to the green. The course then has s mix of Par 5's and 4's that test all aspects of your game before reaching a gem of a Par 3 played from an elivated tee. A short hole with bunkering short to catch anything that is miss clubbed, just s great short par 3. The finishing holes are again a great test with the 15th being played to a green placed behind dunes to catch any wayward approach shot. The 16th is my favourite as you climb up to a well elevated tee box to look down on the green. A make or break shot as it is normal into wind. The finishing hole is a shortish par 4 to elevated green underclub at your peril as your ball will be sucked down a steep slope leaving a more challenging shot to the green.
I have played this course 4 times now i just love it , I live to far away to be a member but its always be a must play when I get a chance .
A great day at this golf club. Excellent welcome - staff very friendly and helpful. Course was in great condition and thoroughly enjoyed.
Best course around in winter conditions
The drainage on this course is amazing. fairways and greens both in top condition considering weather. Difficult course in the wind but its the only course i have played recently that has remained dry under foot. A warm welcome, challenging variety of lynx holes and great value for money.
A quality golf course fit for all types of handicap
True test of golf, greens true and fast, not long from the yellow tees but you need to find the fairway, great links challenge
