Needs RAIN BADLY plus a lot of SAND for BUNKERS

Weekend package £149 Bed, Breakfast, Evening Meal in Dunston Hall plus 2 rounds golf . Hotel NO PROBLEM 4 out of 5. I am now reviewing the Golf Course which I give 2 out of 5. Why 2 ? The cost of a buggy £25 is reasonable. The bar area both in and out very good. The Pro Shop helpful. The greens are as expected and fair to play on. However I am afraid the rest of the course, on this weekend, I found in a very bad condition. The white tees tend to be under trees , which means they are void of grass and those with grass have not been tended for some time. The fairways have not seen water for a long time and the golf ball just keeps running until it finds an obstacle to stop it. My furthest hit was 286 yards with a 6 iron, only a ditch managed to stop it. Ever thought of putting in a watering system ? Lastly and the most annoying 'THE BUNKERS' I understand the cost of a watering system but having NO SAND IN BUNKERS is unforgiveable. I have read other reviews re slow play, I did not experience any slower or faster than usual.

Slow Play

Sadly we ended our round after it took 90 minutes to play the first 5 holes. We raised this with the clubhouse on our return, who tried to suggest this was due to the early course layout. The lack of a course marshal and tee times too close together are the reasons in my view. Sadly this is not the first time I have been badly held up on this course, which is a shame as it is one of the nicest courses to play around Norwich.

I also raised these issues with Golf Now, but have received no reply, so unlikely to be booking through them again anytime soon, as customer service seems to be non-existent.

Busy Course

Played for the 2nd time in one week. Even course was busy the pace off play was very good in just over 3 hours for a full round. As usual you have to be straight off the tee or you are in trouble, which unfortunately I was in plenty of trouble. The course was in good condition other than the yellow tee boxes which were well worn with large area with no grass. Would play again next year when in the area.

Improved Conditions

The layout has always been very good and the conditions have improved over the last few years. Only slight downside was that some of the tee boxes were a bit worn and dried out. Pro shop staff were very friendly.

Great Value, challenging course

For the price of two beers you can play this great course.
Although some may say it's a tad municipal, don't be put off,. The layout and water features will keep the best of players amused. Food and drink possibly a little expensive but that's offset by very reasonable green fees...enjoy!

Beautiful Sculptured layout

Really enjoyed this course, quite challenging with bunker placements and numerous water hazards which get you thinking, which can only be a GOOD thing. Will certainly visit more often

Autumn Golf

First time visited today, course has recovered from the dry summer. Good value for money overall has excellent facilities & well stocked pro shop. Some really interesting holes but few that need attention. Definitely somewhere worth a visit if your not in hurry as even though was quite the members in front of me were very slow. Took 3.5 hours had to walk off in end missing out last 2 holes. Thank you to the greenstaff can see lot of work has been put in. Overall a good track.

Course was challenging

Excellent course although the long hot spell had dried everything out and the ball ran a long way with little chance of control we really enjoyed it. Will definitely play this course again.

Fairways Rock Hard

Always like the layout of Dunston Hall but the fairways have really suffered under the current hot/dry conditions, like hitting of concrete, though the greens were okay and were upgrading the green side sprinkler system.

Poor condition

The course definitely suffered due to recent hot weather, thought course would have had more sprinklers in place though looks like new ones were being installed
