Great Value - Challenging Course

A tight challenging course where every tee shot needs careful thought. Unpredictable and interesting layout (plenty of holes overlap each other but cleverly designed) which is complimented with superbly maintained greens and bunkers.

Perfect course for iron play practice with true putting surface throughout the 18 holes.

Great value for money

Superb service

Despite torrential rain through the night the course was still open. I received a call from the friendly pro shop who couldn't be more accommodating updating us on the course. We even had a buggy booked and were able to take it out with some conditions on where to go. Course played fair, weather shocking but still thoroughly enjoyable. Only disappointment was that we were too late back in the bar to get something to eat 7:30pm.

Course is well maintained and the head groundsmans move to club manager seems to have worked well in a club which has improved significantly over the last few years.

Fairways have deteriorated

It's the first time we've played the course this year. There seems to have been some improvements to the bunkers, front 9 layout and greens; and changes to the tee boxes, but the fairways have lost the quality. The back 9 used to be immaculate, but the grass seems to have died and it is inconsistent. You can hit down the fairway and still land on a patch of hard sand (front & back 9). Disappointing in comparison to some of the other local courses and in comparison to last years condition.

A Gem

First nine top of hill, good air, second nine in the valley. Opportunities to try out that new driver (for which you remortgaged your house). Also some over trees challenges, distance queries, like short the club or go for it. Occasional dry turf patches but ground base is sand with lots of mature trees, roots taking moisture in places. Some of the best green tees I've driven off and greens were not a pushover. Nice character to the place and friendly likeable pro.

Good value for money

The staff were welcoming and offered all the advice I needed. The course is well fitted to the area available. The tee boxes need a bit of attention to level them out. The fairways were a little worn in places, which may have been due to the changeable weather conditions recently. The bunkers, as with most courses need to have a consistent amount of sand. Some were good and some were bare. The greens were the best part of the course and we're in a very good condition.

The changing room was fine but the wash facilities could be modernised a bit. However, it is a frieny little course that I would recommend to anyone.

can be done less than 3 hours

I needed a local round of 18 that would not take up the whole day and this course was ideal in that it is only about 5,500 yards, has challenging holes as well as feel good recovery holes ideal for a twenty something handicapper like me after a quick fix. Have already recommended and would definitely visit again.

A lack of spring rain hasn't helped, but despite this the course was in poor condition - mist tees were heavily pitted with deep divots and lack of grass especially on the front nine. The greens were very mixed and where drainage work had been done last year the tram lines are bad and rutted.

With no fairway watering its no surprise they're browning and lack growth.

Hills and Crossovers

Coombe Wood is a very friendly course and the golf offers a great variety of challenges. For the long drivers there are times to draw the big stick and times to opt for a different club.

The pro shop staff are very friendly and offer great tips for your round so well worth chatting before you get out on the course! The front nine are based on a broadly flat area with a few undulations to offer a challenge for those with a more wayward approach to their drives. The course also crosses over itself at various points and there are a number of narrow fairways so be careful where you're hitting your shots and don't be afraid of unleashing a loud FORE!

The back nine is a big change to the front. Set on a hill its a real challenge for your club selection as you take into account the extra distance or shortened ball flight for the ups and downs.

All in all, a very nice course offering plenty of variety and challenges for those of any standard.

Coombe Wood Review

Really enjoyed the course. The pace of play was excellent. Got around with a friend in 2 hrs and 45 minutes

Some holes cross each other but if you accept this you will enjoy your round. Nice, challenging 18th hole
