First time visit
Four of us gathered at Nailcote Hall to play this nine hole, par 3 course for the first time. The greens in particular were in super condition for the time of year. Slight issue with newly fallen leaves, but it was autumn! Good fun learning the layout the first time around, before playing the holes again. Great venue for playing some enjoyable winter golf. Highly recommended.
Great course for improving your short game !
When played regularly this is the perfect course to improve your game and turn pars into birdies. This is a very challenging course with plenty of water and we'll positioned bunkers. The course is well maintained with immaculate greens and is very picturesque. The course is generally not too busy which allows you to go round at a relaxing pace and just using your irons.
A great short game challenge
Nailcote Hall, the annual host of the British Par 3 Championships is a test for even the lowest handicappers. Course is in great condition, with only slight areas for tidying up on the day. Playing from good quality artificial tees allowed for consistency for the 1st shot on each hole and also allowed for some extra spin, which was very much required on every hole due to the small greens on the majority of holes. Despite a couple of holes being around the 70/80 yard mark, the terrain and water features on some holes means that no hole is straightforward at Nailcote and each shot requires your full, undivided attention if you which to achieve par or better. The greens were true, with very few if any 'bobbles' noticed, if not a little slow on the day I played. I played the course the day before a week's golf holiday and this experience undoubtedly sharpened up my short game for the challenging courses to come. One of the highlights was the pace of play, in a 2-ball, we completed 18 holes (2x9) within 2 and a half hours, which was ideal. Would recommend Nailcote Hall to anyone looking for an idyllic Par 3 course with a twist.
Good layout for small course
Really enjoyable morning with two friends who haven't played before-Alot harder then it looks-Great course to improve you short iron game-Lots of little hidden obstacles -Friendly/Helpful staff but not to happy about x3 coffees costing £12 .50 and no disposables to drink from-Other then that would definatly play again
Trying too hard
This par 3 course has far too many flaws that stop you being able to enjoy it. It only has poor quality mats for the tees which make clean ball striking a challenge, add into that the fast pace small greens and copious hazards and it really is a nightmare. The volume and nature of the hazards give the impression that this course is trying far to hard to make up for the shorter length of some holes.
