Great

Chose course due to location near motorway as meeting distant friend half way. Really nice course, quite tough as lots of trees. Good condition for time of year. Will return

Too many temps

Bondhay is an excellent, challenging course that I've played about a dozen times. The problem on this occasion was 9 temporary greens. I wouldn't have minded had this been pointed out (and priced accordingly) ahead of going out, but it wasn't. This meant it was impossible to use my GPS app to gauge distances to greens. Fallen leaves are currently making balls hard to find too. Staff were out trying to clear them though. Still given 4* as usally it's very good.

Never fails to test every aspect of your golf game. Shame players ahead were too lazy to rake bunkers and repair their pitchmarks.

Bunker r us

To many bunkers!!! Also tight fairways with plenty of small trees bunched together leaving no second shot possible. Find yourself going sideways a lot. Lovely big greens in good condition.
Lovely course just hard going if only slightly wayward.

Great challenge

Nice course with strategically placed bunkers that protect it well, particularly on the shorter holes. Needs well positioned drives to score well. We played on a Saturday when many other courses were closed, so it was busy. However, the pace of play wasn't helped by groups who must have started on 10, then joining the queue on the first! Overall, a great challenge - we will be back.

Good test

Tough course in good condition considering the torrential rain recently, bunkers were out of play and winter greens in play but we still had a good knock while most other local couses were either closed or unplayable.
A good enjoyable day very fairly priced

Very good

Considering it was October the course was in brilliant condition and the greens still fast and true. I’d love to play it in the summer months. Some very interesting and challenging holes.

Great course one of the toughest I've ever played

Bondhay is a great course you need your wits about you. Trees everywhere, bunkers, water. You need to have great course management around here. My brother used to play in the Danny Willet junior championship there. Would play again.

very tight

Good value at £12, always enjoy the drive up to car park. Course is the toughest Ive played. Think there are too many trees miss the tight fairways and you're behind a tree nearly always had to chip out sideways which I feel is wrong. Only have to be slightly off line and this happens. I;m a 8 handicap but this is to tight. Still keep coming back though so must be something I enjoys whether this is the challenge not sure..

What a find !!

Fabulous days golf. What a find this was. Course is recovering from the hot dry summer in patches but still fantastic. No boring holes. Lots of variety in layout. Thought needed off the tee due to well placed bunkers that were excellently maintained. Clubhouse really friendly. Can’t wait to go back

Tight but enjoyable

The pro’s advise was to hit it straight - he wasn’t wrong with lots of the fairways lined by trees which almost guarantee a chip out. A thoroughly enjoyable course which was largely in very good condition with only a couple of signs of the impact of the hot, dry summer we’ve had. The 18th hole is a great hole to finish - stunning.

Challenging course but enjoyable features.

Very friendly welcome. Excellent facilities for food and drink. The course is suffering from the dry conditions over the last few weeks. Some of the tees were poor. Greens were very good however. This is a long, tight course with lots of trees. Very important to be straight from the tee. It is a good challenge for all abilities.
