3 holes closed and many tee-markers missing
We arrived in good time as visitors who'd paid online and were told at the pro-shop we could start when ready. I needed to use the toilet but on entering the clubhouse the men's locker room had a key code I didn't know. I rang a bell on another door to be told by a staff member that visitors couldn't use the toilets (!) but at that point a member assisted by allowing me access.
Out on the course, there were 3 holes we'd been told by the pro-shop were closed (4, 5 & 6 I think), but having found the 7th tee from the 3rd's green and playing the 7th, we then couldn't find the 8th tee. A phone call to the club revealed that the 8th tee was marked as the 4th tee and was very close to the 7th green (as you might expect, and my golf watch confirmed this as we got nearer the 8th green). I appreciate they may well be reassigning holes during WIP but a sign on what may be the new "4th" tee saying it was still the 8th as of today today would have been nice!
There were quite a few tee markers missing on various holes, especially the higher ones after 7.
Overall though a very nice course with well kept greens for this time of year and when the redesign work is finished I look forward to returning.
Enjoyable, not too tough
First time round, found it fairly straightforward, not too many blind tee's, nice variation, very nice greens, some were craftily designed and would be worth noting next time round, it was mid November so a bit sticky and they were adjusting to winter tee's on some holes.A very enjoyable round was had. I found a wicked bunker guarding the ninth which coaxed me in. Also not too long to complete 18 - about 3.5 hours although 4 ball ahead did bail after nine.
Played alot of courses this year, this is a great value golf course, can be tough when windy, best greens they have had in a long time, true roll and turn.
A must visit
A very enjoyable round.
the course is in very good condition, excellent and tricky greens given the dry summer.
A well crafted course which requires thinking off the Tee.
currently undergoing some renovation work which will only enhance the overall playability of the course
Found members very friendly and a nice warm warm welcome in the clubhouse afterwards, and overall a very good experience and will be back
We were hampered by rain most of the time.
Well kept carpet like but challenging greens. Must play course
Greatly maintained greens shame about the fairway conditions
Good Old Fold
A favourite course to play for me over the years, greens are lush but fairways and tee boxes are bit worn.
Look forward to a revisit when the grass recovers.
A challenging course with wide undulating fairways. Strategically placed bunkers to catch wayward drives and approaches. Fast gently sloping greens and a few water hazards. Bunkers could be better very little sand.
Wide open fairways
Love this course, wide open fairways, bring your driver and bang-away. Though long the holes are still interesting with plenty of bunkers waiting to catch you. The whole course was immaculate - I couldn't quite believe that prior to me playing there had been lots of rain. Hitting a ball on the fairway and I was getting summer distances - the ground was so good.
Traditional course well worth a visit
The Club and Course are both well established and do things well. The course was really quiet. The course is well maintained, the fairways in excellent condition Dan fairly generous but wayward drives or second shots punished by tress, shrubs etc. The real challenge is the greens which are well protected and undulating still quick at least they were more receptive than when I played in the summer.
nice course, very fast greens and very welk kept. front 9 is definitely easier than back 9 with quite a lot of short par 4's. Fairways were in good condition and good pace of play.
A little gem - challenging and need to be accurate.
lovely, old style course with super fast greens that are tricky
On a sunny day this course was in great condition and a very nice design. People were friendly there too. First time that i had played there. Will surely play there again sometime.
Nice course, better back nine than front
Well maintained course with good quality tee boxes and tricky greens. Fairways in good condition, and a range of holes makes it interesting.
Back nine more interesting in my opinion, although front nine still fun to play. The only thing that could have improved the course is longer par 5's - but this is a small point and the long 17th and 18th make up for this!
Enjoyed Old Folds with some good friends... Despite winter conditions, we managed a good round
