Excellent greens for time of year
Course was good for this time of year greens were excellant I have to say ! Course Has had some financial problems so I was told when booking in , I played knowing greens are playable all year round no temps so it’s a big plus !!
Good Value Course
This is a well established municipal course, with some tight tree lined fairways, some dogleg holes with well placed bunkers & ditches but also some shorter easier holes so suits all handicaps.
Course currently in good nick especially fairways & greens.
Our round 4.5 hours, mainly due to relaxed policy on golfers of all abilities,& golf experience, which impacts on speed of play.
Be aware some regulars only play the short loop ie miss hole 5-11, which can cause delays on hole12.
.There is no clubhouse/ bar facilities, but local pub.is ok.
Played here many times over the years as its my closest course and it's getting better each year. Some challenging holes, fairways are perfect, greens very good and rough quite forgiving.
Last played here about two years ago. The conditions of the course have improved. The fairways and the layout are better. Only downside are the greens are a little scuffed up but overall improving.
Good course but the semi-rough is very penal
Enjoyed this course again though it suffers from some areas of very soft and boggy ground. The rough just off some of the fairways I think has been left fairly thick to combat this but it causes some penal losses of only slightly misdirected balls. On a few occasions we found a number of balls in this semi-rough though not our own. Enjoyed the challenge though!
Greed destroys courses
How on earth this course wasn’t closed today is a travesty, there is no point keeping unplayable courses open just to make a few quid. Turned up today to be told only 9 holes open and it’s boggy out there...err why is it open then
9 holes may have been open, but nothing short of wellies and a pair of water wings would suffice. Shame as the course is normally good in the summer, but with insane decisions to keep the course open on day like today will only destroy it and it’s failing reputation. Balls landing on centre of fareway and being lost due to plugging are not conditions to keep a course open......terrible decision to keep open and unfair to any paying patrons.....won’t be going back any time soon
Course bit boggy in areas but overall good.
Course wet and soggy 10-13 apart from that considering weather good overhaul greens in excellent condition .
Bowring golf course
A lovely municipal course in really good condition greens and fairways

In decent condition for time of year, well looked after, slow play in front not managed well, but still a nice flat course to play.
