Short but great condition

Fantastic round of golf, the greens were so true the fairways were in fantastic condition. The thing that let the course down was the bunkers, very little sand in them and some had weeds growing in them. Apart from that it was fantastic, the green keepers were very nice guys. They were telling us about how much work they’ve done on the greens and you could tell. Would definitely play there again and would also recommend it to others.

Another visit to Gosforth

Played here again after enjoying my previous visit. I do like this course but the same niggles I had with it last time are still there!
I wish the greens were raked after use and even worse, REPAIR YOUR PITCH MARKS ON THE GREENS PEOPLE!
It’s a shame as it now makes me consider trying somewhere different!?

Played here a few times over the last month. Nice layout and course, greens fine. 16th tee box is a bit battered. Older fella in the shop is friendly. Some bunkers could do with sand and raking but it's like that on any course I play. Teeoff added a random to our 3baller but wasn't an issue.

Gosforth Golf Course 19.07.2020

Course very well presented and in good condition. Enjoyed the round and would happily play at Gosforth again. The only problem was circa 15 minute delay teeing off and slow play due to what I understand to be members ahead of us that had arrived late and teed off late. The course needs to have a rethink about allowing members to tee off late especially at busy times.

Gosforth Golf Club

Played a round with my son. First time here and really impressed with the clubhouse, practice green and waiting area near the 18th.
The course overall was really nice to play, not long and relatively straightforward
My only complaints would be the conditions of the bunkers as they were full of footprints and not raked. I carry my own as my golf club requires you to and I addressed my own despite being pointless. Also the number of unrepaired pitch marks on the greens isn’t something you like to see.
All in all though I’d happily play here again

A Cracker

I know the course well but fir various reasons hadn't visited for a few years. It was in fabulous condition, with the best greens I've played on in the UK for a long time. Great credit to.the club and green staff in presenting a course in such good nick. Look forward to visiting again soon.

Worth Playing

The Pro shop was been decorated, but still very tidy.
The professional was very helpful and friendly.The 14th hole was closed due to new drainage been put in. This did not spoil the game as the rest of the course was in good condition. There were some winter greens in use and were very playable . I would definitely go back as the course is getting better every time I have played there

Let Down

On arrival we were informed that they were vertical draining majority of greens, yet on website and on phone message, nothing was mentioned. Had we known we would not of paid £17 to play there. There was 11 of 18 holes on poor winter greens. Cant do nothing about the weather but course was really wet in places leading to a few plugged balls getting lost, along with balls getting lost amongst the piles of leaves.
On a slightly more positive note, the few greens that were on were pretty quick and honest. Greens staff weren't very courteous either. We were offered a return visit for £12 but looking at the website they do deals for a round and bacon sarnie for £13, don't think I'd get a bacon sarnie for less than £1 if I took up the £12 offer, bit of a joke really.
