Ok it's Autumn !
Ok it's Autumn so cant complain about leaves on the fairway or it being a challenge to finish a round from a 15:30 start :) but a lot of the greens had too many worm casts that made putting a challenge or a chore...
Still a very nice course to play !!
Short but fun
Lots of par 3's. And a few short par 4's. Which was great for me as i don't hit the ball a long way.. For a single figure handicapper it might disappoint. But for the rest if us golfers a really fun round. Especially enjoyed 5, 6, 7 and 8 holes. Will definitely be going back.
Great views made up for dreadful pace
Lovely views of the valley and the group in front who steadfastly were oblivious to being 3 holes behind. We skipped 13 and 14 to leapfrog their appalling etiquette. Greens drilled and sanded - we should have told before booking, some greens were literally beaches. Spoiled an otherwise pleasant course
Good day out
Friendly staff, good course, with some excellent par 3’s, I’ll be back.
Short but technical round in the pouring rain.
Enjoyed a round at Hennerton today, we played in the rain but hardly noticed. Course was in beautiful condition. Lots of short tricky holes which in the wet demanded even more precision. We will be back, hopefully in the sunshine!
Worth a visit
The course is tight and challenging in places but it really only challenges your accuracy and course management. Patience is key here. Be prepared to take a 6 iron off the tee on the short par 4's. Greed will get you in trouble as you can run out of room quickly.
It can also be a challenge to get yardages correct. For example, the 16th is a par 3 of something 180/90 yards but there is a huge dip between the tee and green making the hole play a fair bit shorter than it's yardage.
The front and back 9's make the course feel like two different courses with the front 9 being tight and short and the back 9 being a more open with longer holes.
It is a short course with a par of 65 but it is a really lovely walk (with some very steep hills to climb). The greens were very fast on the front 9 but a little slower on the back. There also seemed to be a problem on some greens with what appeared to be holes from a woodpecker making a bit of a mess. That's the price for being in such a lovely wildlife friendly spot I guess.
Two of us completed 18 holes in under 3 hours which was great.
If you want a pleasant walk with fantastic views that will test your accuracy then I recommend this course. If you want to blat off the tee with your driver on most holes then it's not for you. There are 8 par 3's!
Entertaining course, but too short
The course provided an entertaining round of golf. Some quite challenging holes with doglegs and decent accuracy required. This is offset by the fact that the hazards on either side of the fairways are unlikely to eat your balls as the neighbouring fairways are close, so offer some relief to inaccurate shots.
There is a lot of height variation on the course which I found added to the interest, and results in some very pretty holes.
The negatives are the fact that the course is very short. It started life as a 9 hole course which they have extended to 18 holes, but had to do so with limited space. This made the extended holes (the 1st 9) quite on top of each other and rather short. The 2nd 9 play a lot better.
In all it was well worth a visit, but may not be to everyone's taste.
