Windy day at Bushy Hall
Greens and tees in good condition considering weather, easy enough track to walk and rewarded for good shots.....unfortunately didn’t make many of them!
Excellent value round - course is in good condition and reasonably challenging. No hold-ups on course so good pace, but the bar is pretty soulless.
A hilly course
A hilly course with several interesting holes! The tee boxes and greens could have been better maintained!
I had a good round as conditions start to change joy of golf it’s different every time you play
Slow play last two visits
Have played 5 times now at Bushey , first 3 rounds Brillant no slow play last Friday & Tuesday gone Ethics of golf seem to be lost on some players.
Think it is something that needs to be said again and again to players , to let people play through .etc etc
More enjoyable 2nd time as getting to know the course
lack of marking s on course
Course was lovely , tricky but fair , green nice .
Only complaint I have is lack of marking “Next Tee “ Also when teeing off and you can not see flag , good idea if they put black &white pole so as you had some idea , where too tee off to .
Quite a few of the holes criss cross .
Overall I enjoyed it .
Slow pace of play ruins the enjoyment of the course
It is a good course and has some challenging holes in hole number 3, 5, 15 & 16. Sadly, you are likely to get held up by slow pace of play. I was held up by 3 people in front and I had to skip holes in order to finish the round before sunset. This has happened to me before. Otherwise, I would have given this course 4 stars.
Not the greatest course I’ve played recently. But was very cheap so didn’t expect too much. Greens were not in a great condition and the opening couple of holes don’t have the greatest layout. Another small thing- the numbered signs for each hole are tiny! So can be difficult to work out the next hole when new.
Overall: decent value for money course but I’ve olayed a lot better courses locally for the same price
What’s not to like
This is a fantastic value for money course. Not long but the change in elevations, trees and water test all levels. The pro shop welcome is always great and the club house staff are also really friendly. The ninth hole is a particular treat and I love the sign on the 5th imploring the newcomer not to take driver. Me and my son always have a great round here (although our scoring isn’t always that great). Highly recommended.
Bushey Hall during the dry season
Greens are still maintained but the fairways are all brown and very hard due to the extremely dry and hot weather currently.
For £13 a head you can't really go wrong with Bushey.
The tee boxes are not in great nick but the rest of the course, the greens particularly, are running fast and true.
The course is a little short, you either get a really short par four or a really long one it seems. The first Par 5 is very tricky but the rest of the course is pretty open. You can get away with being fairly wayward off the tee.
Would definitely play again, it's absolutely worth the money and far superior than other courses at this price point in the area.
Good course to play
Course drains better than most courses when it rains.
Sunday afternoon warm up
Very good value for money for a Sunday afternoon, resulting in a very busy course and pace bit slow, cant complain as a 1-ball. Expect few hackers/beginners around, so patience is required.
Having said that, decent short course in the Watford area, with the usual stupid holes (3rd downhill and 5th Par 5) where powerlines are the main danger, but very exciting backtoback Par3 9th and 10th.
Not particularly challenging or long, but good practice on Parkland layout, a steal for £13 on Sunday
Just hilly enough
Lovely course, well looked after with some challenging holes. Has a great mix of flat / doglegs & hill holes.
