First the positive points, the staff are really friendly and polite and ensured pre and post golf that everyone was well hydrated and had plenty of water.

Unfortunately the greens are in a very poor condition. Putting was like playing with a marble on concrete, huge cracks on the greens and barely any grass, clearly they have not been maintaining the greens through this hot spell.

After 3 holes I lost the will as it was basically play to the green then crazy golf.

Not sure what was going on ahead of us but the round took 5 hours, which in my mind is just poor slow play.

I couldn’t recommend this course to anyone st the moment and if I had paid £1 to play it would have been £1 too much. An afternoon and good money wasted. Just glad I’m not a member here or I really would be annoyed.

The greens are in the worse condition... they were split and have huge dried crackers all over them , Unable to put on them . I don't think they have seen water for weeks .... I'll not go back there again . The staff didn't say anything about how bad they were. To be honest I wish we had walked off the 2nd green and left the course.... so I would tell anyone thinking of playing there DON'T.....

I’ve played this course a number of times and always enjoy the challenges but the course is suffering from the abnormal heat (as are many others).

The fairways are still reasonably green but the greens are going brown and cracking badly making putting a bit of a lottery. They are also incredibly hard so keeping a ball on the green is a real challenge, as is getting the putting lengths right once on the green.

All of this, coupled with the heat, badly affected our pace of play but at least no one was playing behind us.

Have played Brandon wood on a number of occasions and have mostly enjoyed the course but on this occasion I was absolutely appalled at the state of the greens (or browns!). Most have not been watered for some time so most of the greens have turned brown. Also they have slit scarified the greens for some unknown reason so on a number of greens there are large open slits that make putting almost impossible. The course is lovely but the dreadful state of the greens made it a most disappointing game and I will not be back soon. As a footnote spoke to two members in the car park who told me that the green-keeper has recently been sacked - not surprised!!!

Good course layout, could do with some investment to make it a quality venue.

Very poor greens, cracked & contaminated, fairways needed cutting down.

With fairway grass being as long as rough on other courses, grass on the greens as long as fairways, hollowtining that has made greens look like a cricket square, old hole positions clearly visible and raised and bunkers in woeful condition, even £7 was not value for money.

Other golfers in vests, throwing old ball cartridges on the floor and with no etiquette.

This should have come with a disclaimer, that although cheap, its not a proper round of golf.

At our tee off time 1218 we were behind two groups of 3 and a single golfer.

So 20 minutes after our tee off time we were off ,45 minutes for 3holes got to know the young gent in front of us ,nice guy.

Allowed to play through theThreesome in front of myself and my son ,while they drank their cans of lager,,!!

At the 13th we met the first threesome.

We played this hole and decided to go to the 18th,as did the single player,as by this time 1600 we had had enough and called it a day.and went for a beer!,

Shame but we could not get into our game with no continuity from hole to hole.

Not good!,

I think there are some harsh reviews of this course. The course overall was really enjoyable to play but could do with some water on the greens. Just becarful at the 9th hole as it is very close to the 12th.

This course is the worse condition I have ever seen it in. Use to play here a lot about 3 years ago and really wanted to go back and unfortunately it was a big mistake greens are in terrible condition. I would currently not recommend going there to any one they have really let the course go. It’s a shame because the layout of the course is fantastic and could be a very good course but looks more like lack of money and no effort put in at all such a shame
