Good course.... abit slow at times

Enjoyable days golf. Very hilly shame the weather didn't allow us to have a buggy. Sometimes waiting 5 minutes on the tee. Other than that a good round of golf. Will come back in the summer

Good Value

Got a £15 deal. Course in reasonable winter shape. Had to play off Winter Tees (which reduced the length of the course), but the tees were in a good condition and didn't take away any enjoyment.
The course offers a variety of holes and some good strategic bunkering. It's quite hilly and requires a reasonable level of fitness to walk.
Overall - For £15, I'd definitely play there again.

Great value winter golf

Love this course and its layout. Good to see a starter in the winter to keep things moving. Really friendly staff and members. Four ball let us through immediately on the first tee and the pace was good for a weekend. Quite a bit of mud around tees and some sand on the greens but generally good and to be expected in January. High quality tee mats in play on most holes which is the right way to go in my opinion. Only negative was the halfway house shutting just before we got there. Would be nice to keep it open for all players but otherwise, really enjoyable as always.

Winter mats

The course was generally quite good but the use of winter mats wasn’t necessary.
Play was very slow as we followed people who were clearly not golfer which somewhat spoiled our day

Great Greens

With so much wet weather recently, combined with the cold December air, I wasn't expecting much.
Have to say I was really impressed with the greens, they were simply the best I played on all year.
The fairways and semi rough were well manicured, a real credit to the green-staff, it was impossible to lose a ball.
It has wide fairways with a few elevation changes and some beautiful scenery, water features and bags of character.
The offcourse facilities are plenty and varied with a great practise area.
I received a warm welcome and good conversation from the courteous staff.
Overall it is a classy place with a great and testing course.
If you havn't tried it you are missing out.

Love playing this course, good shots are rewarded and poor shots are punished. All 18 holes are different and good visually.

Why so quiet

Great course as usual. Reasonable test very pretty. Yes greens had recently been sanded etc but pretty standard for this time of year. Can never understand why it is always so quiet. Great value for money.

5 1/2 hour round. Terrible greens

Living locally and having played here many times, this should be one of the best courses in the Midlands ! Unfortunately the condition of the greens is way below what you would expect or accept if you were a member here. And to top it off 5 1/2 hours for a round !!! The starter was very keen to tell us about buggy abuse would be escorted from the course instantly, which was very condescending. Then teeing off 15 minutes later than booked which again is not the best start to a round. But to be held up for every shot due to the slow play was the worst of all. What are the course marshalls for ? Nowhere to be seen ! Greens and bunkers are the worst we’ve played all year ! It was so poor that I’ve cancelled my next booking.

I am very sorry that we did not look after you well and you raise some very concerning lapses in our service, I would like to look into this issue further so I can find the cause of the issue, I do hope that you will contact me directly at the Welcombe on 01789413800 and ask for Tom Waldron.

Welcombe course review

Second time I have played this course, but last time was at least twenty years ago, so only sparse memories of the holes. as this would have helped with blind shots and dog leg holes, as this course has plenty of these. overall the course was in good nick, just the tees were a little scratchy and bare. I would say a good layout and challenge, enough space to not lose your ball other than the real bad shots.I enjoyed the test of golf, i would comment that if you walk it is hilly and has some good walks between holes.

What a gem !

Having played this course about 15 years ago I had modest expectations, what a surprise it seems that they have been very busy redesigning and improving the course and facilities. It s now an excellent test of golf with some challenging and difficult holes, considering how dry it is at the moment the greens were excellent and well watered and the fairways holding up really well.
We walked the course on a very hot day so I would strongly recommend using a buggy as it can be very hilly with fairly long walks between tees but overall a great experience and we will return for certain.

Great day at Stratford

New owners seem to be getting the course back to tip top condition. A way to go yet, but great value for a decent golf challenge in a very nice location.

Slow play

Very slow play, no one letting smaller groups through to allow play to flow.
Never saw a course marshal checking the flow of play.
Playing as a 2 ball took almost 5 1/2 hours to get round.

Perfect weather

Great Greens for Winter

Beautiful surroundings and very friendly pro on arrival. We had a coffee in the clubhouse, again very friendly. On the course we were moving at our usual rate for the first 4 holes (16 & 24 H/cap) but then caught up with another 2 ball ahead. We soon realised that there were 2x 4Balls all on=Buggies in front. From there on in, we waited on every hole - sometimes standing aside even before they had tee'd off!! Obviously not club players!!!
Weather was good so did not let it detract from our overall experience. The course itself was packed with surprises and will be back next time in area.

The course provides a real rest of golf

We enjoyed our round of golf at the Welcombe.
The course is in good condition but slightly let down by the poor condition of the greens and tees.
The facilities are good and we enjoyed our lunch in the modern club house

Mid week social golf for 3

Expected the course to be in tip-top condition at this time of year.
Greens were unreceptive (sanded) and bunkers virtually unplayable. Generally whole course was a bit jaded around the edges.
Disappointed, as usually a lot better

Busy but good

Lovely course in great nick but was very,very busy when we played on a Saturday afternoon. Poor course management in my opinion,two balls should have been made to play as foursomes when play slowed to a snails pace. Would still play the course again though.
