Great layout

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.

Monday bargain

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.

Getting worse

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

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.

Farthingstone

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 value

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 .

Perfect weather

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
