Course fully open using proper tees and greens and in excellent condition throughout reflecting the time of year and recent weather. Only downside was the pace of play. To some extent the course suffers from its own popularity and the prospect of our two ball being delayed behind a number of four balls ahead resulted in the pro making the helpful suggestion that we might prefer to play the front nine twice, which whilst not ideal we did. As a result, we never saw another golfer after hole nine and flew around at the second time af asking.

I had not played here for 18 months and I found the course in better condition than previously. Sadly, it has become a victim of its own success though, as too many are playing it, due to its superb drainage in winter. Overall, it is a must play course, with the signature 17th hole an absolute joy.

Despite wet conditions during the early part of the week, the course was in excellent condition underfoot. A stiff breeze on the day resulted in leaves being blown across fairways but ground staff were tackling, albeit fighting something of a losing battle. The course provides a decent test with a variety of holes, is relatively short and easy enough walking. The greens were in good nick. The popularity of the course and all seasons play has seen a price increase but a promotional voucher offset the cost and for just £10 provided superb value on the day. Comfortable bar area although limited choice of beers. Staff mainly sociable.

Excellent drainage provides for all-year round golf. Fairly easy walking but variety of holes provides for a decent test. Condition leads to popularity but pace of play reasonable on the day. Fairways relatively dry despite recent rain and greens in very good condition. Voucher provided for reduction in green fee which has been hiked since last year but price not unreasonable relative to competition. Warm welcome by pro and comfortable bar area.

Played Rufford for the second time today, course was better than I remembered, fairways and greens in great condition, the holes all vary greatly in elevation, direction and level of difficulty, not a bad hole amongst them, some lovely views to take in, you will be hard pressed to find better value, quality golf anywhere.

A very well looked after course, which played well. Great staff, helpful and friendly. We played it twice in one week. A nice challenging 17th over the water and 7th over the valley.

Would definitely go back again.

First time on this course and have to say I was very impressed,friendly welcome before teeing off.The course was in fantastic condition the greens were not overly quick but very true. The scenery is stunning and although quite undulating the course didn't seem to taxing. A quick mention of the 17th, yes it is a memorable hole but does seems to create a bit of a bottleneck. However this is a course I will definitely play again

Really nice course but design means that almost all par 4s are driver off the tee. Could do with slightly more variety off the tee to add additional challenges.

The pro was very helpful as we didn't realise we had to pay at the course - thought payment had been taken from GolfNow.

Lovely course with great views. It has been a long time since we played the course and the trees and course have matured beautifully. Some interesting holes.

Had a very enjoyable afternoon round (2 ball). The course is interesting whatever your h/c and in the swirling breeze particularly challenging! Some lovely views, not least the brilliant 17th (try it with an inconsistent cross wind!!!). My only gripe is that the pace of play can be very slow. By the 5th tee we were waiting over 15 minutes for 3 groups to play in front of us and this obviously continued throughout the round - total 5.5 hrs!!! If you can cope with that then a course well deserving of a visit.
