Lovely course could do with some tlc

I am very familiar with the course having been in a member in the past. The introduction of new ditches has added to the difficulty and hopefully improved the drainage.

The course is lovely and quite challenging in golf terms with small greens and physically with the steep hills. Some of the course seemed a bit ropey and could do with some tlc especially some of the tees and bunkers.

Would certainly recommend the course to anyone in the Summer.

Very well designed course

This course is well laid out for the space and presents a challenge with the back 9 going increasingly steeper up the hill.The club house is impressive with panoramic views out to the 3 holes that lead up to it. I will certainly be retuning as finished after the 12th, you can go right up the hill to an alternate 12th green and then onto the 13th hole onwards (much further up the hill). The 18th looks amazing as the tee off is from an elevated position with the fairway going down steeply to a green by the club house. Best course I've played in Gloucestershire so far.

Left a little disappointed

Arrived really excited to play this course as it looked great online, however it soon became clear that the course was under management as the practice green and every green on the course was sandy and a waste of time putting on as the ball bobbled and kicked when running on the greens, but I am sure the greens will be in good condition after this treatment. The course in general I found hard to grow any attachment to, as many of the holes lacked character and I found myself wondering if I had already played some holes as they weave back and forth next to each other. It was not until the 12th when things got interesting and the course swings uphill to great views of the surrounding area. My favorite two holes are probably the 17th and 18th, as the 17th has a drivable green alongside water and the elevated tee shot down to the green next to the clubhouse.

A good test of your all round game

Lilley brook is most definitely a course that if you are playing well you can shoot a good score, but if your having an off day prepare to struggle! Large trees line most fairways and the undulating greens are some of fastest I have played. Despite its difficulty, it is a beautiful course (if somewhat tiring from hole 12 onwards!) in excellent condition and one I would happily recommend.

Lilley Brook is Tops

A most challenging course in a fantastic condition, the greens are as good as you would find anywhere at this time of the year. The tee off times are well controlled and the play progressed well. The staff were very friendly and the service was tops. I highly recommend this brilliant course.
