Greens in need of overhaul. Patchy and so slow it was silly. Fairways with mowings still on and very poor signage, found myself wandering around to find the 15 th hole no signs at all , deeply frustrating. Some holes the hole Sian was missing so couldn’t tell which hole it was. Probably best to close this course and make it an open space allowing more money for the remaining council course.
I played here due to my course being closed due to a competition & being the only course I could get a tee time for on a Sunday morning. I didn’t expect it to be of a high standard but all the same quite looking forward to it as there’s not many courses in Nottinghamshire that I haven’t played so good to tick one off the list & playing a course for the first time is always nice. The course itself is not too challenging so could make for an enjoyable round as scoring could be good & that’s about as positive as I could be...............This course is horrendous. I wasn’t expecting quality conditioning but wasn’t expecting the condition of greens, around greens & tees to be so shocking & I mean shocking!!!!!!!!! May as well pick your ball up after hitting approach shot. It’s not clear where the green starts or finishes just a flag in the ground where the fairway has been cut a bit shorter. The greens are the worst I’ve ever played in 22 years of playing golf, tbh you can’t even call them greens due to them being so poor. The tee’s were awful too but not a great concern as you can hit it off a tee peg. Also got lost after playing 14th hole as no signs to 15th tee so I played the 18th by mistake & had to walk back, so I got 19 holes instead of 18 but whilst that would be a good thing not here I couldn’t wait to finish & leave. On the 16th there was no flag so had no idea where to aim at & like previously mentioned you can’t see where the green starts/edges. When I got there still no flag but instead a bit of tree sticking out of a hole, wow. Just when you think the course couldn’t get more bizarre I had to move ball on 18th green due to a pile of chopped carrots & tomatoes on the green & that was a highlight because it made me laugh. I’ll never play this course again even if it was free. I’ve tried to upload pictures but it says a photo off a phone is too big of a file. The twig sticking out of the hole & the veg on the green would have amused you it did me because by that point after playing that awful golf course you’re at the point of either laughing or crying. I would have asked for money back but couldn’t be bothered.
Course in good condition considering the recent cover-19 situation, and suspect will improve with time, tee boxes would respond to some TLC greens on the whole where slow but reasonable. Pace of play was good and not rushed staff and members we came into contact with were very friendly and helpful.
Course and facilities well presented with friendly and approachable people, will return to play again in the future and would recommend to anyone.
Excellent value for money
Good course. Flat and the holes are on the whole forgiving.Fairways are in excellent condition however some greens are a little poor in places but still playable.very quiet during the week.
The fairway conditions were ok but the greens were horrendous! On some holes it was hard to see where the fairway ended and the green started. The back 9 was a lot worse than the front. Holes 13, 14, 15 and 17, the fairways have been made a lot narrower than I remember due to the introduction of steep banking. Overall we won't be rushing back!
Value for money
Fairways in good condition, greens need a lot of work. Nice range of holes. Club house closed so had to write scores on phone.
Having played this course two years ago, the difference is absolutely amazing.
It looks lovely.
Yes the greens at the moment aren't the best,but with more time will be .
Fairways are really good and in general great value for money.
Well done the team at Bulwell Hall.
The greens were like putting on the fairway, and the fairways were like the first cut! Not great! Very quiet though which was the only bonus....and the sun shined!
Not good at all.
Played this course for the first time today. It shall be the last time. Absolutely terrible tees, Uneven and cut up. Fairways are like the rough of most courses and the greens are the absolute worst ive played. Its hard to tell when the rough/fairway ends and the green starts.
Waste of money.
More than Fair
No one available when we arrived but it was later in the evening.. Had to find fairways as even the first cut was long and the greens weren’t in the best condition but for a small green fee around a public course it was perfectly fine for getting a golf fix in! If only we’d gotten some way of knowing how the find the 15th/16th&17th holes it would have been an even better experience! Certainly will be returning to try and better our scores, but this course allows you to either be aggressive or play simple golf!
The course has so much potential with the setting and trees. However; the teas were a shambles and the greens were the worst greens I’ve ever played on.
Considering the £17 green fee the value for money is woeful. £10 is too much. I would not recommend you waste £17 unless extensive work is done to the tees and green especially
Needs some t.l.c.
First time at bulwell hall but not the last, after reading some of the other reviews I was not sure what to expect this course is well set out in very pleasant parkland. Yes the greens need some t.l.c. but it is a good test of golf holes 15, 16, 17, make a good looking score bad? Overall good value for money and friendly staff in the cafe bar proshop will be back.
Not played this course for a few years due to the disruption of the trams. It was a ok course then and it has not got any better since. Who only cuts the edge of the greens and not the putting surface? I know the council who own the course.
For a beginner course this is ok
Really long challenging 9th. This course is in need of a little tlc in places.But it does get you using all of your clubs
Beginners at best
The staff here are friendly and it is cheap, this reflected by the state of the course, greens very long and slow and in terrible state, fairways were moderately ok, there is no dress code or if there is no one cares and no etiquette shown as rules state if game behind catches up allow to play through, our 2ball stuck behind 2 X 4ball who kept losing balls, waiting around too long so skipped holes so could get to our afternoon round. Beginners course, won't prepare you for a proper kept course!
No staff around
Booking a 7am tee and no staff start untill 08:30 played without scorecards and everything really disappointed
Good for beginners
This is an easy course and for a beginner like me it was good value for money. Greens aren't that good. We went on a Saturday afternoon and it was empty. Would definitely go again.
