One of my favourite courses
Played very early in the morning, first out. The 3rd hole on the blue course takes you down into the valley which was shaded from the morning sun so the first 5 holes the greens were pretty much frozen, in great condition though as were the fairways. Rough is cut quite close this time of year so if you tend to be wayward, now is the time to play it. Hole 6 takes you out of the valley into the morning sun. This is one of my favourite courses in the area, plays slightly longer than others but the combination of hills and valleys make it interesting without torturing you. Would consider this club for membership
The worst greens I have ever seen at Farleigh
Played Farleigh many times in the past under the previous and owners and now under Foxhills. I have got to say “ the greens are truly shocking, it’s like putting on the moon” I am not sure if they are infested with something but there are patches all over the greens on all 18 holes.
My only other issue was the ball washers they were either empty of chemical or broken or both. Apart from that the sun was shinning and it was great to get out and play on a course that is in a lovely location.
Perfect Sunday golf
The 27 holes at Farleigh enable the course marshalls to redirect golfers at the halfway stage to reduce course congestion and this worked perfectly for me. It is late May, the course is in excellent condition and Farleigh is at its best.
The Hawk and pigeon fighting in the sky wasn’t the only bird sighted that day. With birdies for all and an eagle on the par 4 second on the yellow course! Fantastic fun!
Very pleasant first outing at Farleigh
Monday morning outing, and the course was not busy, ideal for a cautious first time visitor. Sunny day with mixed weather, two occasions when the rain was intense - just took shelter. Superb greens, very fast and in excellent condition. Enjoyed the course and look forward to a return.
Whole facility is very well maintained and the spacious, bright and open planned club house has lounge seating and dining areas. Seen when in to order a take-away sandwich; was deleicious whilst playing the back 9. Interesting format for the order of play, having 27 holes that basically make up 3 - 9 holes courses, played yellow then blue ( will ask for red, next time). Unforgiving rough if straying off the fairways encourages accuracy!
Great course for the money links feel to it. Clubhouse & changing facilities are excellent with friendly helpful staff. Highlights though are the greens which are at private course standard! Would definitely recommen
Played this course with a friend. I am a 13 handicap and he is full handicap. We both really enjoyed the course, different holes and tricky but fair greens. Recommend a buggy and it would be quite a walk! The course tee times are well managed with three 9 holes and didn't wait at any tee box.
Would play again and recommend you do too
Have played Farleigh many times & have never been disappointed, the greens are in great shape as is the rest of the course, friendly staff in pro shop & bar, overall great value & well worth a visit.
Good course some challenging holes. But overall you get what you pay for
Farleigh Purple course
Always a good test of golf. Windy with some tough pins but excellent value for money.
First time playing here, we played the Yellow and the Red courses. All courses have wide welcoming fairways but any wayward shots are punished by heavy rough.
The course is quite exposed so on a windy day it definitely has an affect.
Course condition was immaculate, I've not played on better greens.
Will definitely be going back to play more, would recommend the course to anyone.
Played 4 Ball. Great company good course great value and all played well. Can't ask for anything better.
Good course with the choice of playing 3 different nines,and the pace of play was quite quick. Not that difficult in the winter but a lot tougher in the summer when the rough is left to grow
Course in great condition for this time of year all facilities were great. Will definitely be playing here again
Played up at Farleigh for two years about 8 years ago. Not been back since large investment has been made. Course a tad easier now with a lot of rough gone and some of the large humucks too. Few more bunkers appeared though. Course in very good condition, greens immaculate. Perhaps pro shop should give out free pith repairers as plenty of pitch marks are left unattended. Shot an 80 and 43 points which I've not done for a long time, which shows just how nice a playable this course is.
