Great experience being a first time player here
Challenging but not overpowering. Experiencing water, sand bunker on each hole but nothing too daunting to handle. A brilliant course for improving your game and flat enough to save your energy to use it for game strategy.
Thank you, I would definitely recommend it for all standards of players
Course in very good condition particularly the greens bearing in mind it was the middle of October
Actually played the Lakes course
Loved the course. Some really interesting and challenging holes. Will definitely be going back.
What a Bargain
Booked this course at the last minute and so glad I did, good layout, great condition and the greens were beautiful. Had most of the course to myself too. When I go back for another game I think I'll leave my driver at home, the water hazards are all in play from the tee boxes, played the back nine with a three wood from the tee and scored much better. A Wee cracker of a course
Moffat Lad's On Tour
The Dawson course at Longhirst Hall is a really good test of golf, plenty of room of the tee plenty of length to most hole's and testing green's. All in all most enjoyable a nice flat course so easy to walk, clubhouse after your round for a drink and some food perfect.
This course is well laid out the fairways are long on most par 4 holes on the back 9 plenty of water around greens are well kept due to the weather most off the fairways could do with a good downpour you can hire electric cars for your clubs nice bar on the 19th hole serves food pro shop well stocked up .
Greens need serious attention
Longhirst Hall is a really nice place to have a round of golf, the staff were great and very helpful. Unfortunately when we played, there was a senior competition a few holes in front of us and we caught them up quite quickly. They were taking ages and it slowed the pace of play down for us and everyone behind us. It ended up taking us more than 4 hours to finish the round. Also the greens were very patchy and could do with some serious treatment. When we were looking at the greens from a distance we thought we seen what looked like bunkers but when we got closer, it was just the disease on the green. We still enjoyed the day and would return with the price we paid on Golf Now but if the club spent a bit of time on getting the greens sorted we would be happy to just turn up and pay the full price.
Thanks for your comments. 4 hours is the national average for a game. With regards to the greens. Its been dry for almost 8 weeks now, there is no "disease", just a few dry patches which does occur during these periods. We'd be happy to see you again after we've had some rain and you can see the full glory of the courses.
Played the Dawson course two weekends on the bounce.
It’s currently in fantastic condition and thanks to TeeOffTimes; great value for money.
Looking forward to playing the Lakes course sometime soon.
Played this morning, course in fantastic condition, greens exceptional. Pace a little slow on front 9, but played through. Others players very helpful and friendly.
You have got to give this course a go. Not just drive and pitch, got to think, only used driver 3 times.
Will be going back, plan to try lakes course next.
Potentially excellent new course
Lots of water: few bunkers. Avoid the ponds and it is not too difficult. Greens in very good condition but not easy to read. Quite long in parts but plenty of "risk and reward" par 4's. Will be super when it matures, I think.
Slow play spoiled the day
Played this course while on a weeks holiday with a friend. Unfortunately got stuck behind two 3-balls who clearly had hardly played before.The starter seemed friendly & did say those in front actually wanted to play as a 6-ball. We have no problem with that but let the guys behind you through when they are waiting on every shot! The course was dry & firm with quite good greens when we played in the last week of June.Some of the holes were varied and interesting with a fair bit of walking between greens & tees.Would probably play again but not if the six in front were to re-appear which was a shame as I played close to my handicap.
1st time visitor
Booked as a last minute choice and was pleased we did. Course was in good condition as most are at this time of year. The greens were true while a bit slow.
We will return as it is good value.
don't play unless you have 6hrs
Played this course on Saturday 17/6/17, exceedingly slow play, I have played this course a few times and this is the second time myself and friend walked off, it took over 4 hrs to play 14 holes and couldn't take anymore and walked off. Tees not that great either. Will not be playing here ever again
great value at Longhirst.
Played on Sunday , tee off at 2.20ish. As I was on my own, I soon found myself stuck behind two four balls and a two ball.Bit of a bummer, but this was the only negative. Course in fine shape, amenities excellent, and, best of all, great value ( £13 ); Newbiggin were asking £25?!.Surely no one wants to see an idle Golf course? Anyway, I would recommend Longhirst to my friends, tho I would opine the Dawson is Slightly easier than the Lakes.
