Good course/good value for money
I played this course in Mid March and found it a good challenge. The course was very wet and greens were a bit slow but this is what you would expect in March. I imagine come summer the course will be in better conditions. I really enjoyed the back 9 as it was more inclosed and had 3 holes that played up near the clubhouse which makes it a wonderful setting. I will be back in the summer to try it out again.
Unfortunately the course was very wet and boggy!!
Weren’t allowed to use normal tees and every fairway / rough shot was to be taken off a piece of Astro turf to help protect the course.
However this will not stop be playing there again but will wait until it has dried up as I think it is a great course with friendly staff.
Should not have been allowed to tee off, course was atrocious , playing off a 300 cm x 100 cm piece of astroturf for every shot, should have been refunded the fees , gave up after 10 holes, only good thing was finding 12 balls in a hedge row across the 4th , least I think it was the 4th as signage was non exsistant.
Enjoyable round at Finchley. Staff were friendly and the course was in great condition.
This course did not have any ‘dramatic’ scenery. It’s good because it’s just half hour from central london but it’s not to die for or a must see one. It did the job though. So to be fair I may go again but I’m not dyeing to go back. The indications to the holes were really poor! Couldn’t find my way around it. Really really few signs and the ones available were confusing ones!
Good course and an excellent afternoon was passed
This is without doubt a very good course. It has a lovely clubhouse and refreshed pro shop. I found the members friendly and staff helpful. The course is challenging, yet fair with some interesting holes and a good, varied selection of challenges. The greens are especially good.
State of course
I play numerous courses and this one was in worst condition I have ever seen . Also so badly marked up for next hole .
slight clash on tee times with members but pro shop resolved nicely so appreciate that
some surface damage which is understandable but greens v good condition
always a good course to play
Quite easily one of the best courses in the area.
Great test for every golfer, with exceptional greens all year round. Highly recommended!
That what it’s all about
Couldn’t ask for anything more from this place... can’t wait to go back
Trickier than it looks
First time playing the course and I found there were several obstacles to make most of the holes more challenging than they might seem initially. Bunkers strategically placed, some hedges or tree lines that punished an errant drive and relatively fast, undulating greens that challenged the putting.
Now that I know I need to play the course again.
Greens were EXTREMELY TORTUROUS... I may have had a off day when I played this course but none the less...
Fast and friendly
The heatwave has taken its toll on some of the fairways and aprons but greens were in great nick. Fast and true. And playing it was fast work with little traffic in front. Great clubhouse for a drink after too . Highly recommended.
Pleasant day ***
Played this course for the first time today. Was impressed with the condition of the course. Greens were very true and beautifully cut. Because of the dry summer the fairways were burnt however there was still grass growing in places so no negatives. I would recommend the course to anyone who likes a nice gentle not too testing round. Speed of play was good our 2-ball was completed in 3hrs 15 mins. Would certainly play here again. One of the best inner city courses I have come across.
Great greens, not great layout
Tees and greens too close together on virtually every hole. Frequently waiting for someone to putt out or tee off whilst playing another hole. Greens are excellent but not sufficient to compensate for the layout. Wanted to finish off with a couple of drinks as usual, especially after a hot day but bar staff were not interested in serving so we left. Lost custom for the club and we will not be rushing back. The welcome from the Pro was good though.
A great golfing experience.
Great parkland course. Not massively long but with fast, true greens a proper test. In great nick and with a very welcoming pro shop. Excellent vfm.
