Sorry guys - been playing Kingfisher for years. Great value for money and a varied round of golf (course) - and well kept. BUT NOW; half the course,, the half with most of the best holes, has become a vineyard, making this a 9 hole, plodding parkland course. Couldn't muster energy to go the full 2nd 9 - just not enough variety or challenge there now. I understand why you've done it, the course maintenance is still great AND it's still a beautiful tranquil location (with a lovely clubhouse) BUT you've killed the appeal of the Kingfisher (£21 is also now too much).
There's scope to mix it up a bit with new tee boxes for the 2nd 9 - you could get some radical new angles going the second time round. Otherwise it's now just a learner course (or warm up for Waterfall).
A shame, my friends and I have had MANY great rounds on the course, but hey, change happens - hope the wine is good!
Couldn't agree more. We only realised the second nine had been sold off after beginning our round and talking to another group. It's now too expensive to compete with regular 18 hole courses in the area and it has lost most of its charm. Shame
