In need of some TLC
Winter greens were in force and whole course needs makeover. Friendly bar lady.
My friend and i wanted a last minute game of golf so decided to go through Teeofftimes.co.uk and decided on a game at Darnford Moors at Lichfield, It was a windy but dry day and the course was in good condition for the time of year considering all of the rain we had in the days previously, it was even difficult to stop the ball on the greens which were fast for the time of the year but obviously because the course has a good drainage system and built on sandy type soil, it drains very well and is open nearly all year round. The staff were very pleasant indeed and we did not get held up on the course, only once we were behind a 4 ball for two holes, then we were called through. Even though this course is a 9 holer, you have some different tees to play from on the second 9.
I have played this course several times. I was thinking of becoming a member but sadly seems to be going downhill the more I go.
Always seem to get a deal come here because always seems to be to expensive compared to better golf courses around.
It is a lovely set up course, two sets of 9 from different tees. Not long but is protected by bunkers , water and small greens which make it stragetic and actually really fun.
On my last visit the course looked neglected the greens even had weeds and the fairways was ok. We did have abit of rain and hoping this was a reason and because I love coming here I hope it is showed just abit more tlc.
Caught by surprise
This only a 9-hole course - this wasn't clear when I booked it. Some holes are quite close together and there was some fairway cross-over . Harder than it looks!
Without doubt this course is in the worst condition of any I have ever played. The greens gave divots out of them and the "semi rough" is like a jungle. Unless there are some significant improvements I will never play there again. It's like playing on a farmers field.
The course was only a 9 hole course so had to play same holes twice for 18.Fairly straight forward course, the challenges are ponds and streams/ditches, greens could do with a bit more maintenance to remove the weeds and make them more receptive. Course maintenance could be improved it looked a bit neglected in places.
