Tucked in or out?

After a very warm welcome in the pro office (nice northern bloke..very very helpful..cheers), I had some older member with a polo shirt covered in white ring stains ask me to tuck my shirt in whilst on the first tee. I'm athletic so don't wear baggy clothing. I would question if this was necessary and if the majority of male golfers look better with their shirts tucked in. Is it time to modernise golf to attract kids to the game? I just hope I don't get like that when I get older, so at least I gained something from the incident. Not a great start to a round but not the end of the world.

Anyway that aside the course was in average condition compared to many I have recently played in the area. The greens and fairways needed watering (hard as...as a minimum at least have watered greens so you can try to land the ball on them) and the bunkers needed sand (basically had none).

The course didn't really have any holes that stood out but maybe the "dry not green grass' conditions effected their look.

There was a decent putting green and chipping area and a few nets for a warm up. I don't believe there is a range.

Nice course, lovely greens, friendly staff

Our first time playing at Banstead Downs. Friendly welcome. Good practice facilities. Wide fairways were forgiving. Greens were in excellent condition.

Lovely course

Have played Banstead a number of times however on this occasion the course was undergoing Green maintenance which we weren't informed about. This meant 2 temps in play. Disappointed that no mention was made by pro shop staff. In fact was told that course was in excellent condition!! Having traveled over 60 miles to get there we were less than pleased. Spoilt our game and would have gone elsewhere if we'd known.

Windy weather

Nice enough - not special

To start I have to add that I played Royal St George, Sandwich the previous day so it is always going to be tough comparing....

Banstead is a decent enough course - fair condition (greens were fantastic, tees good, fairways average and there were areas that needed tidying), pretty enough but it wasn't exciting - it was a bit straightforward and almost boring at times.

That aside it was enjoyable enough, the place is decent, the clubhouse good and the pro shop looks good and the guys in there were very friendly and helpful.

We got round quickly as a two ball - 3 hours 15 mins.

Course in good condition

Course in very decent nick. Makes most of natural conditions. Nice layout provided you don't mind crossing a busy dual carriageway to get to half the course. There's quite a few bunkers which could do with a bit more sand in them. Nevertheless Enjoyable round.
