I have lived in Northampton for years but never played Kingsthorpe before. I had heard it was extremely tight, but I was pleasantly surprised that it didn’t live up to that particular reputation!
It was in great shape; particularly the greens.
It wasn’t busy when I played, so I wasn’t affected, but I can imagine it being a bit slow around those holes with shared tees and greens (and the one where you drive over the previous green) at busier times.
Tight course with tighter green undulations
Tight course with some shared tee boxes and greens.
Some of the hardest greens I have played. Play to drop it in the hole, or you are going 10ft past...
A nice course. Plenty of signs to help with next tees. Course was in good condition although very hilly. Didn't get to use the off course facilities but everyone was very friendly and helpful.
Great Value for money
Although the course isn’t particularly long the greens are top class and the best I’ve played on for some time. They have interesting slopes and they run true and at a good pace.
Great greens and an interesting day
Friendly pro shop considering the lock down etc.
Relatively short course but challenging as you really needed to be straight off the tee. A windy day meant that the course was playing longer than the card.
nor busy and it seemed that there was no pressure to keep to the order of the holes. Considering the course is near the centre of Northampton it had a very country feel.
A good round
The greens were in very good condition and were challenging and the fairways were also in good condition.
The only thing I would say is that some the fairways were tight between holes which made for a couple of close calls from wayward tee shots
Challenging 18 holes
After not being able to get any suitable tee times for a while, I found some open on the morning of Sunday 27th September.
The pro in the shop was very friendly and helpful,
We made our way round this lovely well presented course which for two high handicappers was a tough but fair challenge.
The greens were in very good condition but lightening fast compared to what we are used to!
I would say it’s a course that you have to think your way around and even better if you can shape the ball.
Overall a very enjoyable round and good value for money.
Great Greens but nothing else
The greens are some of the best in the county .
The members some of the worst.
The amount of swearing in the clubhouse bar was phenomenal.
Golf maybe trying to attract a different imagine but I'm not sure hooligans is the right one .
Play the course, make loads of pars as it's short and easy but go elsewhere for everything else.
Value for money
Good value for money - course in good condition only downside are the balls flying over from other fairways - pretty dangerous and I was nearly hit with a ball on a couple of occasions - other downside ignorance of other players playing of your fairway with no consideration for anyone other than themselves - my experience on the day .
Very hilly in some parts too
Lives up to "gem" reputation
Course in great condition and fairways could be described as lush. Always enjoy playing here. Greens staff had obviously put a lot of work into it.
Worth it for the greens.
Kingsthorpe makes the most of its location with a course that uses every inch of space well
It does suffer from a lack of longer holes and par 5's but this is compensated for by excellent greens..
An enjoyable if unremarkable course.
Lovely old golf course
Really enjoyed my days golf. A windy day which added to the challenge. Not a long course but plenty to keep you thinking. The course is tight in places but generally fair, the green are really good and very tricky, you have to know which part of the green you need to play to. Only minor complaint some of the tees could do with some TLC. Staff were great and the half way house was excellent.
Will definitely play it again.
Return visit needed!
Booked a few days beforehand when the weather forecast was good, on the day we had to contend with heavy rain instead, so only managed 9 holes before calling it a day. We liked what we saw of the course, plenty to interest at our level and some good challenges on the course. We will be back!
