Not a bad way to get a first post lockdown round in. Greens badly in need of a cutting but otherwise the course is in decent condition given it’s been closed for two months. A few excellent and picturesque holes, mostly on the back nine, mixed in with some largely forgettable ones.

Good course

The only criticism I have about the course is that the tee boxes are heavily damaged. The greens are in great shape and I think the course is challenging with a number of tight holes with OOBs present.

I would definitely play again.

Did not use the facilities for obvious reason, so have not given a rating.

Abbey Review

A typical hotel golf course. Visitors not repairing divot/pitch marks but apart from that and a bit wet under foot OK.

Nice Place, Awful Pace

I booked hoping to fit in a quick round at 5pm on a Friday. Sadly ended up cutting my losses and going home after seven holes as the pace of play was just so bad. I ended up behind a club match, 3 x four-balls taking an age over every shot. 5+ hour round pace. No chance of being let through and waiting ten minutes on every tee in 26 degree heat isn’t much fun so I called it a day. Maybe I was just unlucky but I suspect this course has a bit of a problem with slow play - the cards have an extra column on them prompting players on how much time they should aim to take, which is apparently 1:35hrs for the first six holes, 3:00hrs for twelve, and 4:30 for the round. Way too long for casual play!

On the plus side, of the holes I did play many were interesting with testing water features, and an unusual layout that winds through a housing estate. The greens were in great shape, quick and true.

I’d go back play the whole course but only if I could be sure I could get round faster.

Disappointing course

This was the first (and last) time I have played the Abbey course. The pace of play was fine but overall the course was a disappointment. Firstly its set in a housing estate which to my mind is not conclusive with a pleasant game of golf with residents watching you play on some holes and walking their dogs! The bunkers had sand but it was very hard and you struggled to get under the ball. Most of the ball washers were either broken or were dry and there were no benches anywhere on the course if wanted to sit down,. The course was fairly uninspiring and was a flat parkland course. On the upside the greens were fairly true and the fairways reasonable but the course didn't feel well maintained. We paid £20.00 per round which was not at all good value when compared to other courses we have played recently. Overall not a memorable course and we wont be going back.

Abbey on a Thursday afternoon

Decent hot day again, and the course was dry, but not burnt out, and the greens had been kept a bit longer than normal due to the hot summer, but i thought they were in very good nick, and rolled well at a decent pace.The course is unusual as it winds its way mingling with a housing estate, but the design is ok, and some good challenging holes, with water being a factor on a number of shots, overall i enjoyed the course as it was my first time on it, and felt it was value for money.

Twilight golf @ Abbey Hotel

Arrival and check-in was trouble free and easy.
The practice green was in good order.
The overall condition of the course was very poor for the time of year, the fairways were long and the semi rough indistinguishable from the rough itself.
Greens were fluffy and in poor order with much debris to clear on a number of holes.
Pitch marks were in abundance and whilst we did not pay a lot to play after 5pm it was disappointing.
We would not play this course again despit being local.
