If Carlsberg did golf reviews.

What a stunning course and setting to match.

We played as a 2 ball in early December and the course was relatively empty, conditions were cold and windy and there had been a lot of rain prior to our visit so I was expecting a bit of water logging and the greens to be tired. I couldn't have been further away from my initial thoughts. Fairways were pristine, the greens were something else, even hitting in a low shot the ball still gripped. The tee boxes were as good as some greens that I have played on in the past.

The course itself is quite challenging and long, having not played it before there was a lot of guess work in our tee shots as a lot of the holes are dog legs or blind greens (buy a course planner)

Credit to the green keeping staff for keeping it in the condition it was, especially over the winter months. The pro in the pro shop was friendly and gave us some advice before we ventured out, the driving range facility is also good, bit of a trek from the pro shop and then back to the 1st but that is in no way a criticism of the course itself.

So many feature holes at Bowood, but my favourite had to be 17, simply stunning.

I will definitely return to this gem of a course.

Good Challenge

Very enjoyable, layout revised since previous visit some years ago which I preferred. Course in v.g. condition including tees and greens, especially ladies tees which are often neglected on courses.

Perfect weather

Best round ever at Bowood and best gross for about 10 years!

Loved every minute. Great value for money, given that I essentially had the course to myself (no-one in front, only a two-ball and four ball visible behind) and the weather was dreamy - 24 degrees and not a breath of wind. The course played quite easy as a result, as the rain of previous days made the greens receptive, but there was still plenty of run on the fairways. I played off silver tees, so only about 6500yds, but shot a 'medal play' 76 round the par 72 (hcp 11), about which I was delighted... best gross in about ten years! The welcome was good, the takeaway coffee tasty and the lunch afterwards just topped it off... what a great morning!
