Green Conditions were very good , Fairways were patchy but with the weather we have had it doesn’t surprise me ,Seemed to have pick a very busy afternoon ,play was very slow having to wait on very tee ,we were a two ball and we had two four balls ahead of us which didnt let us through .what should have been a three and half hour game turned into a four and half hours
Have played here a few times and gets better and better every time. What I call a proper course and is well looked after
EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONEY FROM TEEOFF TIMES
Had not played this course for a couple of years. Despite recent inclement weather the course was in remarkably good condition with only one temporary green (This was the only negative on the course as the temporary green was just plonked on the fairway with no attempt to define it?)
Otherwise an excellent experience especially the reduced teeoff time green fee!
Excellent all round course
I am only able to play occasionally so my golf game can be erratic. This course has some very long holes and is challenging for me and my partner on the day, who is much younger. The fairways are very wide and this means that we didn't have to spend time looking for balls in bushes, and giving an opportunity to recover after a wayward drive. The course was well cared for, beautiful greens and well kept fairways.
Add to that very pleasant and friendly staff and we will definitely be back soon
Great overall experience on the course and in the club house
Quite happy to come back here. Shame it’s not closer to home as I would have no hesitation taking membership. Course suits our play. Good food and drink in the club house at reasonable price.
Good course, but a lot of leaves around the course. To be expected this time of year I suppose.
Great golf course
The course was in great condition for our round of golf enjoyed the views and peace of the country side and found some of the holes interning and very challenging.Greens very fast and difficult to read this was my first time at the course but plan to return soon
Worth a Visit
Played several times as we have a playing partner who is a course.member ..... I really enjoy the course, in very good condition and some interesting holes with some strategically placed water hazards ..... Rough was little heavier than usual which I place down to the rain mixed with the sunshine recently. Greens in good order and interesting contours, pro shop, clubhouse and staff all very pleasant and friendly ..... Priced very reasonably and well worth a visit
First time played
Staff and members very friendly and helpful will definitely play this course .
It was my birthday and what a way to celebrate! This lovely course contoured around a river presented lots of challenges and the greens were faultless.
Hollow tined greens - no warning
I appreciate that every golf course has to have essential maintenance, and hollow tining the greens is part of that, but how about warning visitors before they pay good money to come and play your course! Not at any point from making the booking online, calling the pro shop to add an extra player, or when we went in to the pro shop on the day, was there any mention that the course was undergoing maintenance. It ruined the round for me and the rest of the group - I would never normally leave negative feedback, but we'd played Moors Valley the week before for half the price and it was in excellent condition. Crane on the other hand was in very poor shape! I normally love playing this course, but I won't be back for a while. I've played on hollow tined greens many times in the past, but these were by far the worst I've played on. Far too much sand had been used, and the roll (bobble) on the putts was laughable at times.
Hopefully the issues are addressed soon for the sake of any other visitors playing Crane in the near future. I would recommend this course to a friend, but not in it's current state.
Welcoming club , staff and other golfers very friendly and helpful
Have played here 3 times now and all visits were over the winter months. The course is easy in places but challenging in others so will cater to all levels of player (might be a bit too easy for very low handicappers). The course can be a little boggy in places but VERY minor and it is the middle of winter after all - also, the work that is going into drainage on the course is evident and looks like it is paying dividends. The green keepers should also be congratulated as there were no temporary greens and all greens were FABULOUS for the middle of winter (best I have played on over the wetter and windy months). Highly recommended.
Played here for the 3rd time. Fairways are in excellent condition and the greens are now running fast. Live the layout of the course with some challenging holes and some easier ones!
