Overcrowded and Slow Play!

I gave the 4 ball in front of me 23 minutes before stepping on to the tee box on the 1st hole (I tee'd off on-time). At this point, they still hadn't cleared the green (reachable with a drive) so I had to wait further to play my first shot. By this time there was a group behind who gave us 5 minutes before teeing off themselves (One reaching the green side bunker whilst I was stood on the green).
Took 7 holes before I was waved through. Despite being ready at each tee box - including a par 3 when they hadn't even hit their tee shots.
Once I did play through the groups in front were caught within a few holes. At one point 3 groups were playing one hole. An incredibly slow 3 ball, holding up a 4 ball, holding up 2 2 balls.
Speaking to members they commented on these groups being notoriously slow.
When I finished the queue to tee off was incredibly long. The club need to manage the tee off spacing and pace of play better.

Excellent course.

Third time playing this course in the last few weeks and I would thoroughly recommend it. Course is a great test and the normal greens are in great nick. Only let down were the 4 temporary greens which are a nightmare to putt on!

Great condition

Course was busy, however the speed of play and friendliness of people made it a very enjoyable day, the greens are amongst the best I’ve played this year in the north east. Great value for money and will certainly return.

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.

Nice little course

We’ve played here a few times now through Golf Now and it’s a decent little course. Greens are ok if pitch marks were repaired and the same applies to unraked bunkers.
Otherwise it’s somewhere we look for when booking and would happily play again

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.

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

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.
