A good course with plenty of challenging holes, but spoiled by recent weather. The course was very wet underfoot with many puddles on fairways, and areas which appeared to have been underwater for a while.
Some of the holes are dog legs, and can only be reached in regulation by with a long drive. If your drives are on the short side, you will be playing an extra shot to get to the green.
The greens were well prepared and the ball ran well with a good putting stroke.
Several of the bunkers were marked GUR and they appeared to have been flooded recently. The ones which were in play had been flattened by the rain, and the sand was very solid.
Overall his course affords you the opportunity to be tested in particular the arrow fairways on the two back to back par threes. The staff are friendly in the pro shop but sadly one of the ladies behind the bar was quite rude to my partner who was sat in the clubhouse waiting for me to finish. It put a dampener on what was a nice day overall. There were quite a few of ground under repair sites, however this did not impact on the day. We have a holiday home nearby and I am seriously tempted to take up the option of the flexible membership given the enjoyment I had on the course. I will revisit again soon to sample the course again before committing myself to the flexible membership.
Grange-over-Sands Hidden Gem
Superb course with fantastic greens .Very warm welcome from all staff and absolute bargain. If you're in Lake District then look out for this hidden gem of a golf course
Cracking little course in dry spring conditions
Having played the course previously when there was standing water due to persistent recent rain, this round was a pleasure as the course was in lovely spring condition with no wind and periods of sunshine. The setting here is always that of beautiful countryside. The course is flat and not very long, which makes for easy walking, features are the stands of trees which define the holes, with typically one or two bunkers guarding each green. Apart from one or two greens being a little bobbly, the course was in excellent condition. Despite suspecting a full course due to the weather and the car park being full on arrival, as two fourballs we hardly saw anyone else. In summary, for £16 a head to be able to enjoy a round here with enough to challenge us as mid-teen handicappers in beautiful surroundings, what could be better!
Well worth the trip on a rainy day
Myself and 3 friends took a slight gamble on Grange as the weather was far from perfect. The forecast was light rain and, true to form, light rain and drizzle was the order of the day. The course is a little prone to standing water given its location but despite the rain there was no water evident and no real plugging of balls. Testimony to work on drainage at the course. Im a past member at Grange and its always a pleasure to return. The course isn't overly long but it is challenging with 3 good par 5s and some great dog leg par 4s. We had a great round and I carded a 78, my best there for some time. I'd greatly recommend the track players of all standards - it's not overly punitive to higher handicappers and for me is a great challenge clipping the corners off dogs legs. Friendly staff and members. Didn't sample the food so couldn't comment there. The only tiny negative which has nothing to do with the course is that my Golfshot Plus App wasn't up to date with the course on a couple of holes so I had no fly blind a little. Will contact GolfShot to update their records.
Very friendly, warm welcome!
Excellent hospitality on arrival. Perfect bacon butty. Course very wet in places but not the fault of the club, our visit followed a very wet spell. Greens fast for the time of year.
