Tees, tees & more tees

Every single tee area is littered with discarded tees. I'm seems obvious that the perpetrators are the club members due to regularity of the offence and the unique tee style. They may be wooden and biodegradable eventually, but the visitor shouldn't have to sweep them to one side just to tee off themselves. It's disrespectful on so many levels, and completely unnecessary. It has nothing to do with effects of Coronavirus because was happening before the pandemic existed.

Also, the greens are in very poor condition and not being maintained, and the fairways have so many uneven channels running in all directions that your ball is constantly bouncing off to one side or the other. It's akin to trying to play golf on a freshly ploughed field.

Generally a good round

As an almost municipal course the rough was long and challenging and pace was slow in front of us. However the fairways were good, greens a little slow and rough but they were soft and could be attacked

Disappointed very slow round

Good weather. The course was in excellent condition apart from a few wet areas first 7 holes the round was going well then we encountered a que from then until we walked off at the 12 hole (3hours later) A club competition with 7 games were in front , we were not in anyway made a where of this before we started, and it spoiled our day. I Will think long and hard before I play this course again

Okay very occasionally for a cheap round

The fact that we (a 3-ball) had to let 3 single golfers through before we finished hole 5 might have been the worst luck ever known, but along with previous experience of a culture of golfers keen to get around the course in the absolutely minimum amount of time this can be typical of what you can expect during a round here.

However, what is always annoying is the poor quality of the course. For instance, the cuts of the fairways and immediate rough are always longer than they should be, but it is the ruts that criss-cross almost every fairway which often hinders the length of your shot or redirects it to one side into the rougher areas that make this a very poor golfing experience.

We've not experienced other Progolf courses, but would be reluctant to try for the fear that the maximise for profit at the unacceptable course quality would very likely to be what is offered.

Certainly not a course in the mid or upper percentiles of Bournemouth' s and surrounding areas selection of alternative courses.

Slow play delays

I like this course but Slow play by a team of golfers caused a lot of frustration A team of 4 ladies playing extremely slowly lead to at least 4 pairs of two ball golfers walking off cause it was that slow our round took over 5hours never herd of stewards should have help the timekeeping or managed tee time better

Greens in good shape

Nice to see the greens returning back to normal after all the dry weather Fairways are ok but glad you have trimmed the rough areas but still managed to loose a ball just off the fairway ah well will play again.

Our game of golf

Played this course last Saturday would not play this course again as if you don't always hit the fairways don't look for your ball as the grass is is to long will back to Queen's Park golf course council course better than a private run course

Very boggie

I was not informed by TeeOffTimes that the front nine on this golf course was closed so had to play the back nine twice, would not have played this course if I had been informed at the time of booking.

Drainage a problem

Booked on line, so not sure what conditions to expect. Unfortunately 4 holes shut, so unable to have a proper competition. Lucky with sunny weather, so enjoyable anyway. Greens were a bit rough - never mind - roll on summer
