Revisit after 3 years
My second time playing this course and enjoyed it, a mature course with character. Playing on a Monday the course was quiet, weather conditions cool but hazy sunshine and no wind. With winter conditions the Tee boxes and greens were in only fair condition. All holes had water in them. Many signposts to next hole had been blown down and need reinstating. However the fairways were sound. Afterwards the food and drink good. All staff from the Golf Pro to bar were very welcoming and friendly. Its a good value for money course if playing to a budget. I look forward to playing this course again this spring.
The last time I visited farthingstone was over 10 years ago and I couldn’t remember too much about the course so when I saw it come up on GolfNow app I thought we’d give it a try. Given the fact it was a December day the quality of the tees and fairways were pretty good. Unfortunately the greens were a bit here and there and you could tell the long dry spells we’ve had during the summer have taken quite a toll. All things considered the £10 green fee was excellent value and I’m sure the greens will come back with time. Looking forward to coming back next spring/summer.
I play the course about 4 times a year with friends we always get a warm welcome from the pro & staff which is a great start to a days golf. Its a pleasure to play Farthingstone GC. If I lived closer I would definitely apply for membership.
Had an 11.30 tee off in warm conditions with a little breeze. Course was in very good condition with just a few greens still recovering in places from the dry summer - but this did not detract from our experience.
It was a quiet round with no pressure so you could concentrate on your game. I was with my eldest son who is still learning the game- it was a good learning session for him.
Will certainly return soon.
Enjoyable round of golf spoiled by very poor greens
Don't think I'll be back and that's a real shame.
The holes are interesting, the landscape a fair challenge but the course condition is unacceptle
More sand on trees than in the bunkers. Uneven and strewn with debris.
We played gimme 2 for any time you made the surface.
A real shame
Despite 40+ .mph winds really enjoyable game of golf in peaceful setting. Some lovely holes (par 3 11th one of my favourites!!).Friendly pro in shop. Can't wait to play again in more benign conditions!!
Hills. Many hills.
My first time here, and I think it would be better if played a second time. There are several holes that are played almost blind, and the slopes seem to gather everything into small gullies of longer grass; maybe long hitters would carry them, but I’m not a long (or even medium) hitter.
The staff and members are very friendly and welcoming, and it certainly wasn’t busy on the course.
You do need a trolley though, preferably powered. Those hills really take their toll.
Great hidden gem of a course
Really enjoyed Farthingstone, playing in a 4 ball where we never waited anywhere.
The greens were a tad slower than look but overall quite challenging.
The fairways were in good order, my only criticism is the tee boxes would benefit from a little tlc.
Other than that a great course which we will be playing again very soon.
Great course with some challenging holes played on the bank holiday and it was great value and very quiet the fairways were slightly long probably due to the wet weather. Only issue is there was no driving range to warm up in before starting the round.
Nice course Nice staff
Booked a hot deal at a great price and was not disappointed. The course was in great shape considering the amount of rain earlier in the month. Members extremely friendly and happy to give advice and the staff were great too.
Great course great views and very challenging on some holes.
Nice golf course
Nice club house friendly staff pro was very informative course was in good condition greens need bit of attention but we're playable and quite fast would definitely return again
Only paid £6 each for a round at 12 o'clock great value, nice course and good weather on the day made it a good four ball. Apart from slow play by one four ball three groups in front of us slowed ot up for everybody. However will go back again just for the nice atmosphere .
Doesn't winter well
Very muddy conditions in part, coupled with very diseased greens made this a disappointing visit.
Farthingstone offer great deals for visitors/hotel stays but a few hackers on the course, slow play and shouting from hole to hole shows the challenge they have of keeping reasonable standards
Teetimes process worked seamlessly
