challenging golf course
many years ago since i played this course.forgot what a challenge it was. you have to plot your way round this course. it was in great condition despite recent rains. excellent greens not superfast. staff in shop welcoming and helpful.well worth the money.
The Northern Secret
Hillsborough. What can i say? To start the 1st is a real test up the hill. Its OOB on the left but a long way to the green. Right, youve masred that lets get to the 2nd. Its ony about 125 yards off the tee but you have the wind above the trees and the green is a nigjtmare as it slopes back to front and everything seems to roll off. The 3rd is the hardest on the course and you soon realise why its straight but very tight. OOB on the left and trees on the right.
The grees have recently been ironed and are like lightning. The whole course is in really good condition and its a compliment to the green staff.
After the golf its time for a pint and a bite to eat. The clubhouse is going through a bit of an uplift but it is still offers a warm and friendly plave to be. The food was good and great balue for money.
You reall must give this a go.
Challenging, well laid out course
Course was really well laid out and was in excellent condition. Really enjoyed my day, despite not playing particularly well. Also got a friendly welcome in the club bar.
A hidden gem
was getting nervous as to where the satnav was taking us but was pleasantly suprised when we arrived at the course.
Golf pro was very friendly and courteous and allowed us to tee off early as the course was fairly quiet. A long slog up the 1st into the wind, but thereafter the course offered some interesting and challenging holes. Great views over the surrounding countryside, when you cross the road to play 2 holes (4th & 5th)
Unfortunately at this point we had caught up on a 4 ball group in front(also visitors). Despite the fact that we were only a 2 ball and we were constantly waiting to play our shots, they never showed any etiquette, to allow us through.
This spoilt our enjoyment of the round on the day, but I wouldn't let it put me off returning to play again
Hillsborough Golf course
We enjoyed a good round on a first class course in great condition given recent weather conditions and afterwards a nice bite to eat.
Autumnal weather. Quite a tight course and greens in good condition despite recent wet weather. Caught out by slightly slower greens in shaded spots probably due to lack of wind drying out the course
Great course pity it was very poor weather. Played the course a couple of times good kept course not an easy course to play. Friendly staff very helpful. Would recommend to anyone.
Great greens, Slow play
Overall the course was in very good condition the greens were a highlight. Unfortunately we got behind 6 non golfers who were visitors with zero thought for anyone behind them. We complained to the pro and he offered us 50% discount on our next visit, I understand this is not entirely the clubs fault but maybe handicap limits would help.
This however has not put me off visiting again as we enjoyed the course.
Hillsborough is a nice course which I played at the wrong time. They are obviously conditioning the greens with the large amount of sand on them so the greens are a bit poor. The fairways, tee boxes etc are all very good however, it plays very well with some easy and difficult holes. I would recommend playing there and if I stay in this area consider becoming a member. Also the staff are very welcoming and informative.
Really good course. Good variety of holes in rural setting. Tight in places but not overly so and plenty of fairway to aim at. Greens fast and true, only slight issue was that greens had been spiked and sanded but only to be expected at this time of year. Recommend this course and a steal at price we paid.
Great food in bar!
All fur coat
My playing partners and I have played this course several times between us and I can honestly say its been nothing but poor.
The biggest problem with the club is it's arrogant, rude and big time Charlie memebers that have a total disregard for other players (non memebers)
It looks like memebers can just do what they want when playing a round, basic course rules are overlooked and the speed of play can only be compared to the pace of a giant Galapagos tortoise. Before you google it, that's 0.3 mph.
Such a shame this course is like this, as it's my local course and I along with 3 of my playing partners have been considering becoming memebers. This experience has put the final nail in the coffin and just like the members I won't be in a rush....... to return.
I once played this course and there was small gentleman playing in his socks!!
Good course nice layout some nice but tricky holes and some of the views were great
Poor set up
After arriving 30 minutes before our tee time we were made to wait over an hour due to a comp being on. This meant we could only play 15 holes after literally running round. A little poor
wont play here friday morning again
was booked to play at 11 40 however,there were 5 fourballs on the first tee at that time & we had to walk to 11th to start! consequentially we only managed 15 holes very disappointed with the discourteousness of these members not letting us go on time!!
Great value for money, will definitely recommend this course
