Water works

I love this course with its lake and meandering streams which I managed to find on a number of occasions. Weather wasn’t great. It was windy and raining on and off but it didn’t stop up from having a thoroughly enjoyable round.

Matfen Day

Played the course a few times and have never been disappointed with which ever 2 of the 3 9s we're playing - This time we played the Standing Stone & Dewlaw.

From booking in until we left after the round & some food , we were treated very well by both club shop pros and the catering team and made very welcome, special shout out to Nicola in the club shop who was very helpful indeed.

Spent 30 mins at the driving range, although you have to drive to it, was not an issue, guy in the range shop was friendly and can't argue at 50 balls for £3.50. also has a great short game area, and no doubt one day I'll play the par 3 course.

Now to tee off - Course was in great nick, the days rain before certainly helped with the greens being very receptive. Just a note on the greens, they played pretty true although they had been hollowed/micro tined at some point that week before we played, but did not spoil the putting expericence. Course layout has been well thought out, with some bunkers in the wrong/right place!! Sand was good, not to fluffy... Quite asthetic expeically looking back toward the Hall.

Overall experience was fantastic and look forward to playing it again...

Very poor condition

Thought we got a bargain at £15. However found the course to be in a very poor condition. I've played on municipal courses with better greens and tee-boxs. The lady at the club house was most unhelpful just giving the basic amount of info on how to get to the 1st tee. Would not be going again this year. Hopefully they get someone in to sort out the condition of the course as it has a decent layout.

Love playing here

Good course, needs a tiny little TLC. I always enjoy my time at Matfen. The only criticism of yesterday’s visit is around the greens needs some attention, otherwise no complaints.

Great for time of year

Another thoroughly enjoyable round. The course is kept open and on full greens as much as possible in the winter and it is this philosophy that keeps our society coming back.

Staff are particularly friendly and the bar/ dining area is great for a relaxing pint afterwards.

Nice course interesting layout and in good condition

Really enjoyed a round at Matfen. The staff in the pro shop were excellent and even rearranged the tee of times when one of our guys got stuck in traffic. Matfen is a good course and with its 27holes it makes it an interesting place to play. The food in the club house is excellent so overall top marks and we will be back

Course great but tees tatty

Played in a four-ball with buggies for a friends birthday. Clubhouse great and bacon sarnies fantastic!!

The course is in good condition and, with all the recent rain, the first and second cuts are a bit juicy - take an extra club!! The greens were true enough but a good bit slower than I am used to.

The only gripe is that the tee boxes were in poor condition and could do with levelling off and tidying up

Matfen Magic

We enjoyed a fabulous afternoon playing a course that rewarded accuracy, but punished any wayward shots. The hazards are all in the right places, the greens were in excellent condition, and the rough was brutal if you were unfortunate enough to find yourself in there. We had a fabulous day and will undoubtedly be returning soon...

Pace not good

The staff put us right before groups of school golf who took forever to play. Took us 1.5h for the first 5 holes. The staff could have avoided it and place us on another departure, as there are 3 par 9 on that course.
