Great Greens but mediocre tees
The course was well presented and has been improved in the last 18 months or so. On the face of it is a pretty fair course but there are a couple of holes to catch you out, in particular the 3rd and the 15th. On this day the greens were in good condition but the tees were poor with hardly a flat tee off position to be found. This has long been an issue with this course but it would be nice if they could address this, even some of the worst ones would help. Having said that overall this course represents value for money in my eyes.
Ideal course to perfect your short game
Probably a bit biased,I'm off 9 and shot one over after a double on the first!! Plenty of short par 4's therefore wedging and chipping plays a big part of the round. The greens are superb for mid September and can make you look foolish if you're putting isn't on it!!! Fairways are in great nick and you're rewarded if you get your tee shot away, I thoroughly recommend giving Hurtmore a visit and the course provides a challenge for golfers of all levels. Friendly atmosphere in the clubhouse afterwards and and some cracking deals on the sale rack in the shop, I kitted myself out for the winter. Great day was had by all !!
The course is short but in really nice condition and morning golf for £17 is really a bargain. Staff were all friendly as were the members.
Course in good condition,but l can't understand why the 16th holes is a temporary tee box. I think l could count on 1hand in the last couple of years when we've teed off the grass.
Interesting course with a variety of holes. Some uphill, some downhill holes, a few holes with water (18th nerve racking). The greens this week were in very good condition.
not a bad course at all if you want a nice pleasant game of golf.Not difficult course by any means but value for money
Great Short Course
8 of us enjoyed a great game on this well kept friendly venue.
The course is quite forgiving and open which certainly helps for some shots! The tee areas need some work but overall good value for money nice course
Short and forgiving, but excellent condition.
We played a mid-week 3 ball in possibly the worst conditions of the year. Despite the torrential downpours the course was in fantastic condition, the fairways remained dry and there were only a few greens that held tiny amounts of standing water.
But the course is simply tiny, even off the back tees. There are a handful of par 4s that are driveable for even an average hitter and another few in range for the big hitters, none of which particularly punish a wayward attempt. Employing shorter flagsticks to make the hole seem further away did not fool anyone, either.
All this being said, we thoroughly enjoyed the course and will definitely be returning. It was a great confidence booster for the 28 handicapper in our group to be able to have a few birdie putts.
The staff and the food in the club house were great.
Hurtmore golf club is a great course even if it is shorter than most others. It has its own challenging holes with tight dog legs left and right. Even in the winter the greens are in good condition and very rarely gets water logged. Dispute not have a driving range the indoor simulator is great and very well priced.
Not a bad course but too short for my liking.in good condition for time of year.
Avoid at all costs
This course has been shooed into a tiny plot that would suit a 9 hole course. Most of the par 4s are driveable and under 300 yrds with just one par 5 - most of the par 4s would make nice long par 3s. The greens were dreadful like putting on the surface of the moon. Most of the bunkers were full of water and had little sand in. Play was slow due to the very low standard of players in the groups behind and in front of us. I dont think I'd play here again even if it were free.
Short but well layed out
The course is short but well layed out.
Course was busy which was ok as showed it was popular. Course was in good condition for a November day.
The down side was after the round of golf my playing partners were all hungry and thirsty and after standing at the bar for 5 minutes plus no one appeared to serve us so left unfed and got a hot drink from the vending machine in the entrance.
Nice course to practice on
Hurtmore is fairly tight so makes you think more carefully about where you hit the ball, greens in good condition and almost all Bunkers had good sand depth.
Slow day out
Course in good condition other than a few bunkers still had standing water in them from a storm more than a week earlier which seems unnecessary. Three of the greens also had oil on them from a leaked mower. Otherwise the course was good but the pace of play behind a society was dire. First nine holes took two-and-a-half hours.
First time but not the last.
The course is nice, not easy and long enough.
Value for money
The day we played many courses locally were closed after storms but aside from water in the bunkers, the course was in great shape. The design has made the most of the space, so some of the fairways and greens are close together. Forgiving rough and well-paced greens.
Great risk reward golf course
Excellent golf course well looked after staff very friendly
Hurtmore is a confidence building course that is relatively easy. I am a big hitter so it is therefore a lot of holes are just drives and pitches. There are a few annoying out of bounds and the 3rd is one of the toughest par 4s around with the 18th having the potential to be a round killer. You will be in a bunker at least once on your round so make sure you can get out of them. The facilities are good for a golf course on the cheaper side and a social event could work well here. They have an amazing new simulator set up which I have yet to try as I prefer to play outdoors. The staff can sometimes seem grumpy but overall ok.
