OK, I appreciate the phrase hidden gem is a little over used but on a bright sunny October day to find this little track was a real joy. Not long but quite clever with a fair number of great risk reward opportunities, cunning dog legs and you will need to move the ball both ways if you are going to score low. Greens were in great shape... soft but true and the members have clearly got to grips with repairing pitch marks which is also nice. Can't wait to come back... now I know where to hit it! Well done Birstall.
Good pace course, has some bad features
Course is very bumpy on the fairway.
Not much to the course, not very exciting.
Greens were well maintained
I took 3 other players to this course and we all had a great day, course is in fantastic condition & the greens were very true.
All the clubhouse staff were very friendly and helpful. In fact 2 of the group are thinking of joining the club that's how impressed they were.
Good value day out
First experience of a relatively local course. Greens in nice condition but fairways had a lot of debris (leaves/logs/branches) on them from the recent windy weather and the length of grass on the fairways was a bit long. Balls were difficult to locate on the fairways and the greens staff could have been out earlier with blowers if too wet to cut the fairways. But overall a nice course and would play again in the future.
Very good course in great condition with tree lined fairways.Greens were well watered and flat considering the 30°+ temperature.The course was very interesting in its layout and will definitely be returning.
We have played this course a few times and always found it a well presented layout. We found the tees fairways and greens in excellent condition. With the current Covid situation they have installed a ball retrieval system which is absolutely brilliant which not only ensures zero contact with the pin or cup but is very useful on wet days when the cup fills with water when you get your hand wet fetching your ball out of the hole! Sadly we weren’t able to use the clubhouse under current lockdown but hopefully in the future we’ll be back to use all of the great facilities at birstall.
Recent heavy rain made it heavy going as is on Leicester clay. Greens and bunkers in very good condition. All folk come across, shop, bar and other players very friendly. Good practice area with good bunker and associated green. Overall good facilities but no buggies.
Worth every penny
Have recently been playing courses still trying to recover from a long hot summer 2018, that have been further damaged with the winter play. This course most definitely does not come into this category. Tee boxes, fairways and greens are in super condition and make Birstall a great course to play with a decent amount of challenges on each hole.
Appalling condition, walked off after 9
Very poor condition. Definitely not a winter course. Okay in the summer. Was like playing in a field. Walked off after 9 holes - very slow 9 holes, all memeber complaining also, some were walking off after 9-12 holes also. Avoid it until the summmer people...
