Great Course

Fantastic Course, had a lot of rain in the area recently and was expecting it to be really wet, but it played really nice and the greens are in great shape, look forward to playing again soon.

Charity Golf Day

Took part in a golf day and Barnham Broom is a great facility for this sort of thing. There were a lot of golfers that day, but the venue was well organised and all refreshments were well received. The course played really well, especially for the time of year - great greens and well presented throughout. Some really nice signature holes, like the par 3 7th - overlooking the beautiful setting with magnificent views and a tee box elevated some 20m.

Great golf, venue and all the staff really friendly too. Well worth a visit.

Shut front 9 and all temporary greens

Turned up to play and was only told on the desk that all of the front 9 holes were shut on the valley and could play back 9 twice, asked about playing the hills course as seemed not worth it but was told had to wait 2hrs 48 mins for next tee off, so continued to play valley back 9.

Got to the course and all the greens were temporary and ruined the day for us even though the actual greens looked in pretty good nick.

Shame as is normally a lovely course and wasnt reimbursed any amount afterwards, poor customer service

Slow and abysmal

Course martials should of been present to prevent the round lasting 5 and a 1/4 hours! Slow play, took on too many people and large groups ahead causing a back log of 3 groups waiting to tee off one hole! Normally great course but ruined the day.

Days golf

For me and my bad knees and feet it was to hilly and the steps to the 7th tee box was very hurtful and the pathways very awkward and sometimes narrow

A very good course with plenty of variety

The course is one of my favourites in the region and presents a stern test for all skill levels.

No two holes present the same challenge, and more often than not it's the cautious or sensible player who will walk away the winner.

They only issue is that it's a popular track so there is the very real danger of having to wait for holes to clear

Challenging course

Valley is an excellent course in very good condition, plenty of water hazards and various slops to test you. Staff very friendly and excellent services.

A great day!

We greatly enjoyed ourselves, the weather was beautiful, the course in good condition and very scenic. Perhpas a bit more hilly than we anticipated and some of the directions for the next tee not always clear. Some quirky holes so the next time we'll have a better idea on how to 'tackle' these......A fantastic day overall; lovely staff everywhere and good bar snacks. We look forward to going back

GREAT COURSE, BUT I HATE TEMPORARY GREENS

It was a fairly good day all round. However we (2 players) were stuck for a while behind 3 fourballs, though they all kindly called us through at some stage. My main gripe is that several of the greens were being tended by groundstaff meaning we had a number of temporary greens, which I hate. Putting out on the first green we were actually sharing the green with a groundsman spreading grass seed. Seriously! We weren't warned in advance or I might have chosen a different day.

An unexpected gem

I don't know why I waited so long to play this course, it's genuinely incredible. The course layout is one of the best I've played, with no two holes the same... long, short, narrow, wide, doglegs, straight, undulating, uphill, downhill, and none of the boring holes you so regularly come across (you know the ones, it's less a golf hole, more a 320 yard pitch and putt).

What really surprised me for a resort course was the quality of the greens, they ran absolutely true. If my putt went online... it went in the hole (except that one time where I stupidly left a 10ft par putt a foot short!).

It was very busy with a bunch of 4 balls so the pace of play was quite slow. Personally I don't really care about pace of play... I don't mind sitting an having a chat on the tee box! But it would probably have annoyed some of those speed tyrants on the courses. The bar was very pricey as well, not too big a fan of £9 for a cider, and an orange an lemonade, hence only 3 stars for that.

I will definitely be playing here more regularly. What a wonderful surprise.
