Nice little course with friendly staff. Some facilities shut but you could still get a beer/coffee if you wanted one. Nice course however due to good weather and no doubt furloughed staff fairways were a bit dry but too be expected! I’d play again but try outside of sat morning as bit expensive for what it was.
Society day - unplayable
Unaware that there was a large society being sent out at the same time as me. Unable to play through so spent the whole day watching them looking for balls in the bushes or faffing around on the greens.
Spent almost 3hrs for nine holes which is not acceptable. Gave up after nine holes
Does what you expect
The course condition was adaquate but no better. Greens were fine but fairways were poor. Layout was decent.
Basically if you want a perfectly acceptable course that welcomes visitors, even an early tee time on a sunday morning, then this is a good choice. If you want a really well conditioned course then maybe look elsewhere.
Booked up at the last minute and was actually surprised to grab an early morning 4 ball as most other courses were fully booked.
The course plays fairly long as one of its main features with plenty of dog legs to keep you thinking on fairway positions.
Some holes played tight thanks to mostly tree lined course but get onto the back 9 and this opens up nicely.
The greens were fairly small so approaching the green had to be a met with good accuracy.
The only real criticism was the amount of unrepaired pitch marks that littered some of the greens otherwise a lovely course that you should give a try.
A decent maturing course golf
T’s and Greens in good nick, greens were slow mind! Many bunkers left to over grow and empty of sand, but over all a good course with some nice and challenging holes
Worth a round !!
• good length, great layout, usually in very good condition;
• it would be great to see a bit of TLC done midweek, the fairways seem to be overgrown on Fridays;
• management should start looking into dynamic pricing: i think it's silly to have the course empty on a Friday afternoon when you could fill it up with £15-£18 twilight green fees. keeping it around £30 all day Mon-Fri will most likely end up causing you a loss of revenue throughout the summer;
Played for the first time at this course, the course was very well looked after considering they have a been closed for a couple of months. It was busy and the tee off times were nicely spread out so that you could enjoy your game. Golf buggies were available straight away and staff were friendly. Unfortunately the golf shop wasn’t open but that due to covid-19 but we enjoyed our game of golf. Definitely recommend.
just not very nice
Ok - so COVID means its not 100% operational, but that's the same for other courses in the area too
The course was littered with beer bottles, not nice
OK course, OK condition, Poor greens
There are far better and nicer courses in the areas for the same price, Woldingham around the corner is about 100% nicer for the same price
All in Order
Course in decent Knick. Greens in good condition. Rough is penal especially with hard fairways sending the ball racing through. Barely anyone on the course so made good time. Good value for money.
Cracking Course, well worth playing!
Great course, played quite a few in and around London, I play off 14 and this truly is a test, thick rough will greet you if you miss the fairway but if your straight off the tee there’s a good score to be had. Solid 6500+ years course and if your a decent player it well worth a go
Late night round booked for 6pm. Confirmation email said I had until 9.30pm but when I turned up I was told the gates to the car park shut at 8.30pm. There were too many players packed in ahead and the pace of play was unbearably slow. Played through a couple of groups but it was pointless. No ranger to hurry people along. I played the front 9 again just to get my money’s worth before time ran out. Nice enough front 9.
Poor!! Not worth the money!!
£35 for the round was way over priced considering the course was in shocking condition. 5 and a half hours it took 2 of us to get round due to the constant hold up at each hole after they over booked. Won’t be playing here again!!!
Nice layout , fairways very good
First game after lockdown restrictions lifted. Fairways really nice , greens need work , but it’s to be expected after this awful lock down situation.
Staff extremely friendly , which is a big plus at a course. First time I have played the course , but I will definitely come back.
Usual municipal standard course, greens very patchy and had disease,bunkers unplayable.But you have to bear in mind that most staff would have been furloughed.Very busy 3 or 4 groups waiting on a number of tees,5hr round at moment, not very well organised at start told just to join the queue.
Post Covid so generally just let happy to be playing.
A few nice holes however for the most part your standard local GC.
Bunkers awful (this wasn’t just 2 months worth of lack of Covid maintenance). No sand.
Rough was incredibly thick and unfindable for many average shots which seems harsh however expect this to improve once staff are brought back in from Furlough.
Greens slow but ok.
Good friendly welcoming staff.
Overall was ok.
Today I played park wood for 1st time. It was day back after covid19 and overall was a good day. The play was slow but to be expected as people were probaly rusty haha. Greens were not great but probaly due to lack of time to prepare. Overall course was nice layout with some really fun holes. Most disappointing part of day was £30 to play. Way to expensive for a course of this nature. £12-15 would be about right
To get to the course involved going along lots of narrow roads, well that's where my sat navigation sent me. On arrival it appears like a work in progress. Arrived about 10.30am, there were only 6 cars in the car park and a massive clubhouse. After eventually finding my way to the reception I booked in and got my card and bag tag and was informed there were 3 temporary greens.
First hole was okay but when I was approaching the second I couldn't see the flag, after playing a general shot towards the green I walked towards the ball and noticed a flag lying on the floor with the base of it in the hole on a temporary green. After that I gave up scoring.
The rest of the round was similar with at least half of the flags lying flat with their bases in the hole, this had resulted in a lot of damage to the holes (Originally I thought this was golfers using their putter to retrieve the ball from the hole ) Also most holes were off the mats making the course shorter/easier
Generally the course was short and many similar feeling holes, wide fairways flanked by fir trees, lots of little bodies of water but most not incorporated into the holes.
I feel this could be a reasonable course, but it needs a bit more attention to detail and some finishing touches . It feels a little soulless at the moment.
Pros fairways were good and most greens were true, holes well separated from each other
Cons poor general signage , damaged putting cups/holes, flags on ground, teeing off mats, some temporary greens
Firstly not a £40 course, although in better condition and the 1st cut has actually seen a cut then previous round here.
8 min intervals between tee times is not enough. We started 3 holes behind nearest group. Soon caught them up in 4 holes.
We then waited before every shots.
Another example of a greedy club who try and squeeze in to many tee times in a day.
God help the members if that’s what they have to put up with. A group of which picked up and left at the 11th they were so fed up with the pace.
Either get a Marshall out their or just stop booking 4 balls 8 mins apart !!!
