A days pleasure with a friend before lockdown

I like Farthingstone course hidden in the Northamptonshire countryside but not to far to travel. Always a warm welcome in the shop. We arrived a bit late and were fitted in no problem thanks to Paul. So we had a coffee then a little putting and down to the tee. Not a good start but we got in the swing and enjoyed the round. The course was good condition for the time of year. It does have soggy patches not enough to stop me recommending this course to everyone. Give it a go and have a good time.

Rapidly getting worse

I fear for the future of Farthingstone.

At a time when golf is growing and morning visitor tea times are rare, Farthingstone was free from 7am all day with only a handful of bookings.

And its a shame , because it has some great holes but they are not being looked after.

Some of the greens were underwater, some like the 5th were covered in leaves from the tee all the way to the green. Debris is not being moved anywhere, balls nearly lost on the green and impossible to find on many fairways..

Won't go back

Narrow course

Played here for the first time the course was very narrow and tight but to be honest I think that actually helped my game.
I’d certainly recommend to others and will be returning as it’s great value for money and all members seemed very friendly

Great Course

Just watch the one way road in can cause issue's if you time it wrong. Course is great but watch out for balls from other tees

Would be nice if it wasn’t packed

Played 2 ball today - Nice layout and challenging holes, just not the sort of course you can play peacefully if it’s busy - we had numerous fore shots coming our way from start to finish, and people walking across our fairways as we were teeing off. Course is too tight to have groups on every hole. Nice enough course though if you catch it on a slow day. Rate of play terrible today but again it happens when you pack four-balls into each 10 minute tee time. Paid for 18 but only played 9, as it took us 3 hours to get round the front 9 as it was so backed up.

Poor, Poor Condition.....

I’m going to be honest here.... This wasn’t worth £26 each to play a round, having played the course & with a little reflection, if someone said it’s a tenner to play I’d think it’s OK/fairer reflection of the place!!

Greens were very poor, in fact I’ve played better greens in winter! The course is in need of some TLC!

On a positive note the course has potential for sure, some great holes and a decent layout - very much a challenging track, that said let down by the overall condition.

I just hope the excessive money we paid is spent on some green treatment! Needless to say we won’t be returning. Very disappointing Sunday morning!

Love the layout of the course but maintenance has obviously not been top of the priority list, greens were in an atrocious condition

Tweeks needed but great little course

Course was excellent, challenging yet forgiving on certain holes, few tweeks needed however but still value for money.

Tee boxes were in a pretty worn out state and greens were also very patchy and bare in places.

Other than that as mentioned great little course and would happily return

Rude staff and poor condition

On arrival I entered the pro shop to confirm tee time and grab a scorecard. The elderly man in the pro shop informed me that he had double booked and apparently had to join someone we didn't know for the round. We were in a 2 ball. We refused as we had never played the course before and were not overly keen on joining a stranger round the course. I asked the man if we could tee off after he was very rude back to me implying it was my fault that he had double booked the tee time. I said not to worry give us our money back and we will go. He refused said we must speak to golf now. Then I asked again if there was another tee time and he initially said I would not have thought so we are really busy. 5 minutes later, surprisingly the tee time after was free so we decided to play the course any way. The tee boxes needed a cut, it was like teeing off in the first cut of rough. The greens were extremely slow. Pace of play was really slow, behind a 4 ball who refused to let us through until the 10th. The par 3s were quite quirky nicely laid out. A few good holes but overall poor service, poor greens, poor tee boxes and slow pace. We will not be going back.

Golf during Covid-19

This course is always worth playing, it has some very interesting and challenging golf holes.
Located deep in the Northamptonshire countryside, it certainly gets you away from it all.
Bare in mind we played in the middle of the Corvid-19 pandemic. The fairways were excellent the greens and bunkers mostly ok, it was a very hot and dry time of the year.
Great for a casual knock about in beautiful countryside all facilities and course presentaion are very average but GBP 20 a round, well worth a visit.

Not quite perfect, but close

Another great day on this lovely course. My only criticism is the condition/pace of the greens - they are the slowest by some distance and will damage your scoring. Everything else though was first class and I will play there again.
