Getting better all the time!
I’ve played this course about 10 times now & I have to say it seems to be getting better each time I play it. A few years ago it wasn’t in the best of conditions but now it’s a great place to play golf. Greens always run well here, pace of play was excellent & staff were very friendly.
Despite the weather changing recently the course drained very well to. Only disappointment was all bunkers were GUR but that seems to be the case at most courses due to Covid.
Will be back soon
Course could do with a bit of TLC
Club house need a bit of TLC
Easy to play lots of trees
The course has a nice flow with some lovely holes
Would recommend a visit
Maybe a bit wet in the winter
Lovely course but poor condition
The course is well designed with some lovely feature holes, however the course condition is poor. The chap on reception told us all of the bunkers are out of play as they are having work done to them. We couldn't see any work being done to them at all. They had just been left alone so weeds and thistles are growing in them. The tee boxes are overgrown and run down. Some of the tee boxes are temporary tees. None of this is mentioned on the website. You just get told it shortly before your tee off. Definitely not worth £35 of anyone's money in this condition, but would be if it was in good condition as it is a lovely course.
First time I have played at Gatton Manor and I will be back. It was a very cold start to the day with the first fairway covered in frost but the sun came out and soon thawed everything out. The course itself has a lovely layout and is very picturesque. A combination of water and tree lined fairways leading into tight greens makes this a challenging course but one that is a pleasure to play. The course was undergoing annual maintenance which meant some greens and tees were not in good condition. Maybe the club should considered reduced fees during the maintenance window. Overall, it was a thoroughly enjoyable round of golf on a lovely little course. I will be back.
Great value for money
Lovely course, lots of variety, some cracking holes. Greens v good for time of year. Bunkers terrible - thick muddy sand - but we had lots of rain this week so forgivable. Would defined recommend this course.
A great first experience
A great day out on the golf course. First thing I’d say was just how helpful and friendly the staff were. It really helped make a great start to the day. Seemed to really care about the customers which was great to see.
Course was challenging but accessibly so. Well looked after. It’s a very beautiful course with plenty of obstacles and water traps to up the difficulty level.
The reviews I'd read on this course were a little mixed but I found this a solid mature course with some very interesting holes.
It could do with some more attention around the tees and greens, the buggy paths are a bit of an eye sore but those are the distractions from what is a pretty beautiful location, attractive and some challenging holes.
It was pretty busy the day we played and I am sure that was because of the offers they have on at the time of writing this review. It would have been nice if the halfway house was open. We were warned so, enjoyed a tasty bacon roll and coffee before heading out. Still the opportunity to get a snack at half way would have been welcome. Yes there is a virus but social distancing can be applied and there seemed the opportunity for plenty of business.
Overall we really enjoyed our visit. A tidy here and there, some course care and this would be a top place to play however if they invested more the prices would definitely rise so the value for money is good value.
The course was in good condition and would play again. The day/time we played it was very quiet so no issue with the pace of play.. Cannot comment on the amenities as these were not used.
Fantastic couple of days
We were informed of the bunkers being GUR, but due to the past few months it was of no surprise.
The course was in fantastic condition and the greens, oh the greens, were lightning fast. A real test of course management and your ability to shape shots is a must. All the staff and I mean everyone made you feel extremely welcome. The food was of a good quality and service was spot on. Members were engaging and only to keen to take time to answer questions you had.
A real gem, we decided almost immediately that this would be an annual event.
Rooms were clean and comfortable, bathroom spotless, tea and coffee supplied.
Excellent course, nicely laid out, in good condition. Very friendly and welcoming staff, excellent food, overall simply great! The only downside for us was it was quite a trek to get there, nevertheless we will be going back!
A generally poor experience
Similar to others, this course looks like it used to be decent but is now almost post apocalyptic. Like a course used to be here, but has been left to the wild.
The pace was slow, the conditions worse and we won’t be back
We had the same experience. The course isn’t worth visiting now until they seriously get their act together.
Also the club reply is weird. People arrive late all the time - life happens this is golf not surgery. If they fitted the customer in what is the problem?
Mr Longman, you arrived 30 minutes late for a 1 ball booking on a very busy weekend!
You booked as part of a HOT DEAL promotion on Golf Now and as such would have been playing with 3 other players. We accommodated you at no charge even though it cost us a Sunday morning tee time to do this. The course was busy and I'm sure most golfers would accept that a 1 ball is likely to experience slow play on a Sunday morning, but all greens are playing extremely well and in great condition. Our staff told you that bunkers were GUR and refurbishment was commencing on Tuesday 1st. (as per our website). Its a very unfair review indeed.
Don’t be put off......
The club house might be a bit tired and need upgrading, but the course is great fun, particularly for mid-handicappers, it played at a decent pace on a busy Saturday, the greens and tees were OK, not great, but could be forgiven for me because the course layout is particularly interesting and enjoyable. Don’t be put off by any comments about a tired clubhouse - the food is really good, and of course You can get a beer, so all good. Would definitely recommend and play again - good value tee slots available via golf now
The course was excellent
The course was in lovely condition, some difficult holes but overall very good.
Course is fine, it's was in decent condition and the greens I particular we're good. It is a very short course and not really very challenging overall. Given the length and the quality of the course I didn't feel it was good value for money, I've certainly played much better courses in that price range. The pace of play was slow with a particular 4 ball holding everything up but no Marshall or anyone to be seen to chivvy them along. Nothing wrong with the place but I'm not going to be rushing back.
