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.
Did not play at all
At first the man in the pro shop sold me a tee time. Twenty minutes later he told me that I can't use my trolley and my trousers are not good enough for their caurse and I can't go on. I understand the club rules are very strict despite mud and caurse conditions. But he could not sell me the teetime and could tell me that before take money.
Course a bit shabby this time, Also partnered with other golfers.
I booked a 1 ball hot deal for a little practice round to work out a kink in my approach shots. However on arrival I found I'd been partnered with other golfers. These guys looked as disappointed as me, and it transpired they were competing in a long standing 20 year wager with each other. I couldn't play through the four ball ahead of us who were as slow as winter.
Aside from that the course was looking a lot shabbier than the last time I played I'm not sure I'll be going back even at the pretty low price I got it for.
Not sure if 'hot deal' means you might be partnered with other golfers or whether you might be partnered with other golfers anyway with any type of booking through Teeofftimes.co.uk. Maybe it's just the policy of this course? I'd like to know and it should be made clearer.
This course is a very testing course with fast greens
I really enjoyed my round playing here. It's a challenging course which I really liked, fast greens, loads of slopes, few short Par 4's but the rest are 400 yards. Overall extremely good
Excellent course in very good condition, excellent greens
A good round on a well conditioned course
The course is always in good condition, and this was no different. The greens were hard and difficult to stop the ball on. They were running true, but were slow. A few of the par 5's could be longer or made into par 4's but this may have been because of the forward tee positions. All in all, I would recommend this course, if you have £40 to spend.
Nice and decent course - great greens
Really liked this course. I've only been playing for 4 months so still a bit of a novice but great staff, lovely setting, nice blend of holes (long, medium and short) and quite open so I only lost one ball (I'm normally 3ish at the mo).
Really liked the greens. Best I've played on yet. It wasn't too busy either (Monday in January) so got around at a pace of my choosing. Would recommend it.
