Ignore bad reviews, very good course for the money
Brilliant round today - second time i've played here and its a really enjoyable course to play. The conditions were good, although rough has clearly been cut back lots on the fairways, its still fairly long especially around and on the green (greens def could do with a cut, they were slow and a bit bobbly). Pro was awesome, quickly re-gripped my club for me - golf pride - £9 which was good. Had a brill bacon sandwich and cup of tea (bacon was thick cut). Overall impressed - ignore the folks that get stuck behind societies and leave one star reviews - sometimes your unlucky but the course has to make money!! And anyway if its that bad after 9 the pro will always give you credit for another time so stop moaning!!
Four hours to play 11 holes...
Lovely course. HOWEVER, by far and away the WORST pace of play I have ever experienced. Who in their right mind would decide to plant two societies of 20+ golfers next to each other, at 7 minute tee time intervals. The course was great, but the front nine took well over three hours and we couldn’t take any more after 11 so gave up. Won’t be visiting again in a hurry, but then having said that, nothing was done in a hurry yesterday.
I’m a 10 handicapper and by no means Henrik Stenson, but I could’ve crawled my way around faster than the group(s!!!) in front of us.
Played a two ball, got stuck behind a winter league foursomes but they were very friendly.
Very nice course, just the one temp green. Held up well considering the weather we have had.
Planning to return in a few weeks as a fourball.
Don’t play in the winter
Have played the course many times and this was to be the last until spring next year. Unfortunately the heavy rain on the Tuesday had affected the course in many places and as trolleys had not been banned there was a lot of damage from them. Greens were very slow and needed a cut. Pro shop and clubhouse staff very friendly. Price was very cheap, so can’t complain of the value. Would recommend giving it a miss until spring but really like the course regardless of the negative comments
First time here and it was spectacular nice course layout ,excellent and quick greens,course in great condition, enjoyed in greatly and will be back soon.
This course is great value for the price. Varied holes offer plenty of challenge which make it fun to play. I enjoy playing here. The only thing that could make this course better is the quality of staff - they are frequently not overly polite or easily findable.
I really don't like leaving negative feedback but feel I need to on this occasion. Round was cheap and pro was helpful and friendly. Didn't think it'd be too busy on a Wednesday afternoon. How wrong I was! I think the reason for all the waiting was the fact that the grass was extremely long everywhere. If you were just off the greens then you had a job to find your ball. We were constantly held up and after the 12th we decided enough was enough. Have played here before, although not in the last few years. Greens were dead, will not be back, sorry.
Good Fun, Forgiving Set Up
Really enjoyed playing this course, not particularly long and you are not punished harshly for tee shots landing off the fairway. Surprised by the pace of the greens initially, first couple of holes in particular played quick for us but once we adapted they played nicely.
Arrived at the 1st tee 20 minutes before our booking time only to find 2 societies in front of us. There were 7 fourballs fortunately 3 of the fourballs went to the 10th tee. Once we got started we were constantly waiting for the societies in front of us. So our 3 and a half hour round turned into a 5 hour round.
The course itself was well presented as always but I think they need to look at their booking system.
In the Forrest
Super course with a good variety of holes to suit everyone's game
Good layout and extremely good value for money if you get the HOT DEAL
Would highly recommend it be given a go
Forest of Dean Course
We played on Sunday 14th May 2017. The course was well kept and interesting.
There was a Society event just ahead of our people so everything backed up from time to time. When we got to the 18th tee there were three groups waiting to tee off!
I will play there again but will check for Society events and/or play mid week in future.
Love This Course
The second time back in a month to this lovely little gem nestled in the Forest of Dean.
A great find via Tee Off Times.
Great course, value for money and really genuine friendly staff and members.
David Morris in the Pro Shop is a credit to his profession and the club itself.
Only a 40 minute drive from Bristol and well worth the visit.
Will be going back on a regular basis.
You will not be disappointed.
When I played early on a Friday afternoon the course was quiet. The fairways and greens were well maintained. I came away with a particularly good impression, partly because I played so well.
Greens very good ,fairwaysOk 4 April look forward to playing a game here later in year
Great course to walk
1st class course if you suffer from bad knee's like I do, lovely lay out and very friendly members that were happy to give advise
we were slightly late teeing off but luckily it didnt matter . Although we saw a fair few golfers to start with we were soon by ourselves . Course was in good condition and had been tidied up since last we played although greens were a bit bumpy . Didnt use amenities so cant comment
Calm and mild day after heavy rain, so course playing long. Smooth, slow greens and little run. Water features clear and attractive. Surrounded by mature woodland, varied, strategically challenging holes. Part of golf, bowls hotel complex. Great value.
Pretty and challenging
We played on a lovely sunny day marred by strong winds. The course was well set out with several challenging holes, particularly a couple of the par 3s. some blind fairways so watch out for following drives.
Worth playing forest of Dean
Course great but greens patchy and not true but lovely course and well worth money
