Golf though a Bronze age fort

The course is a little rough and ready in winter conditions and one where accuracy is prized over length. It is not everyone's cup of tea and if you play it on a weekend you will be regularly held up due to riders, walkers and dual fairways so play in the week.

All that being said, name me a another proper golf course anywhere where you have to play shots to greens inside of bronze age ramparts! the views are also great.

Blind confusion

A quirky course. Very hilly with lots of blind shots.
It was very quiet so we had no-one to follow. Tough carries for ladies. My wife struggled.
Fantastic views but therefore very popular with walkers who did not always keep to the sides.
Enjoyable for me but not my wife.

Challenging but fun

We picked a weekend tee time which meant there were regular pauses to allow the many walkers to cross the fairways. The course is a ‘countryside links’, using the many natural features to create an interesting but challenging environment. Some really fun holes playing onto different levels and stunning scenery throughout.

Wet Monday

Even the poor weather could not disguise this interesting course or dampen my enthusiasm for it
Couple of improvements would be better signage (especially to fifth green!) and tee markers
Worth noting no catering on Mondays
Great course though superb views good greens and friendly helpful staff

Amazing environment, tough course, greens need work

The USP of this course is the views and scenic experience it give. The fairways and challennging natural format makes for a great roiund, but the greens on this occasion were poor. They have been stabbed for airing, but not rolled so they were full of bobbles and holes making putting not realy viable.

I don’t like to be unkind but...

I don’t like to be negative about a golf course but unfortunately this course is not particularly enjoyable to play with numerous blind uphill holes, very tightly packed together holes and as it is a public walkway you also have lots of people with loose dogs or children walking all over the course, many of which do not want to acknowledge that you are playing a shot and so they could be in danger. There are a few good holes (much prefer the back 9) but too many negative reasons to not want to come back again. VFM wise I would easily recommend Gloucester or Cleeve Hill which are nearby, a better layout and often cheaper.

Challenging

A Great testing course. You need to be on your game for this one. I would like to play again, which we will next year. More directions around the course would help. Plus directions to the course.

Great parkland course

Course was in great condition, greens were really fast, only let down by hole 3 which was out of action, due to vandalism so not really the clubs fault.

Unique Course worth playing

Really good value and a unique course - no bunkers, ponds or ditches. Overall in pretty condition. Few blind shots but all good fun.
Beware walkers (who are not golfers) and also golfers playing the shared fairways.
No catering or bar service on the monday we played - would have been nice to be told this at the point of booking. Club house and toilets shut when we finished at about 3pm.Pro did sort us out a coffee from the vending machine before we played.

Don’t be fooled

Painswick is a fantastic course to play. It is not long but is full of really interesting holes. The condition of the greens yesterday were quite simply excellent. Firm and smooth. The clubhouse was delightful. Great staff, great food and very nicely appointed. We are members of two local clubs so know Painswick GC well but we’re amazed at the quality of what they have developed. Well done we will be back.

Very difficult to navigate

The course had too many shared fairways and blind shots. Also very difficult to find the next tee on several holes. Blind par 3 was dangerous

A good course that could be better with some minor adjustments

On the day we played the rain did not stop. This made the challenge more interesting. There are several par 3 some of which are very blind. There are walkers on the course but I think due to the weather not an issue.
The map of the course is vague and really could do with improvements also some market boards would help. There are no tee markers only painted coloured spots on the ground which when we played were not visible. A nice course which with a few minor tweeks could be a very nice course to play.

A hot day

Extremely hot and so only completed 14 holes. Walkers have no regard for golfers which can cause hold ups. The course is a challenge. Be prepared to lose a few balls

a course that demands accurate drives and fairway shots.

If you don't mess up the tee shot you'll more than certainly mess up a fairway shot. If it is not long grass it is an impenetrable gully
