I have played here before, and it has been good value for monry. However the course was in very poor condition, the greens uneven, bobbly and sandy, and a lot of the fairways more like light rough, and the tee boxes terrible. Pace of play was awful, with the course packed with people who could barely play golf.
Nearby Cotterell Park is in far better condition, and I would also advise anyone to try Code Y Mwstwr instead.
Very challenging par 69 with some really well thought out holes. Only downside was the greens were very spongy and therefore very slow.
What a gem!
Played the Championship course mid morning on a Sunday. Despite an extended period of heavy rain the week before, the course was in great condition with very few soggy areas. The fairways were closely cut with plenty of run despite the previous weather. The greens though recovering from some grass disease ran quick and mostly true. The course layout provides a test for all levels of player, and while not the longest course there are enough holes to get the driver out and launch one if you can keep it fairly straight! Would highly recommend a round at St Mary's, and will definitely be heading back soon.
Well laid out
Played by myself, first time here so did not know course but will be bacķ.Well worth a visit. Easy access not far from M4.
What a shame! The course layout was good if not difficult to follow for new visitors. A couple of blind holes, which is not a problem, however there were no markers to provide guidance beyond the tee. The greens and bunkers were poor. Bunkers could have been raked which would have improved them quite easily. They were hard baked and poorly kept. The greens looked good, with plenty of challenges due to the thoughtful underlations, however they were spongey, with foot prints embedded! A one foot putt took a 90 degree turn!!!!! This course could be so much better.
Brilliant day on the course
First time to visit this course and I thoroughly enjoyed it. One of the shorter courses I've played but brilliantly set out. Will be visiting again in the near future
Course not in best shape
The reason for fairly negative review is mainly down to dreadful bunkers. Not looked after at all, the greens were fine but the bunkers were unkempt. The practice nets were in poor condition too and the putting green not much better. A bit of care and no doubt a great course, some cracking holes.
