Today's golf

Firstly the course was wet and boggy in various positions around greens and tee boxes ,which is what to expect with the current rainfall we've had lately....the course layout was very nice and greens were very good and interesting....some of the fairways were marked to not play from and had to pick your ball up and place in the light rough as to protect the fairways....which was annoying but understandable....I would like to play it in the summer as I think it's a very nice and great value for money.£17. I've played many courses for a good £10 more in bad condition....so for me I'd recommend it ,
Credit to green staff too for the upkeep .

A decent knock.

I feel bad writing this but this course just felt kind of bland. It was in good condition and the greens were excellent but having recently played Whitburn and Barnard Castle I think I've been a little spoiled. It just didn't have the wow factor and felt like a bit of a slog. Considering the time of year the course was in excellent condition and the greens were superb. Very friendly pro in the shop and everyone we saw was very welcoming.

Cold wet but great

Cold because it was cold. Wet because it’s been raining. Dry patches to be found easily for drops. Greens in great condition.

Surprisingly good

The course was in great condition with a really interesting mix of holes. The greens were in good condition, some were quite small and raised placing an emphasis on approach shots. The pace of play was maintained by slower groups allowing you to play through (Thank you). The pro shop was well stocked and off course facilities excellent. Added to a cheap green fee I would definitely recommend Hobson GC.

Hobson’s Choice - a Great One

Very impressed with whole aspect of this course . I had once visited previously but retired injured after a few holes. Today was totally different , no injuries , great weather course in super condition , greens perfect. As a 4 ball we all thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Very impressed with the pro shop with Shaun & David doing a great job. We didn’t need to buy food but tea & coffee was perfect . Very welcoming club steward .
We will be back for sure . Thank you Hobson GC . What a great choice .

Nice and friendly course

Not the first time playing here but everyone is always so friendly around this course. Front 9 are a bit of a baptism of fire, then the course eases on the back 9

Great condition

Course was still in lovely condition even after all the rain we have had . Few intimidating tee boxes & long par fours as I am not a big hitter but loved it. Played with a relative who was up from down south & he also was very impressed & has asked me to book it for next time he is up.
