Greens not enjoyable

In consideration of the weather we've had over the past few days, the course was not in bad condition. The layout is good, my major gripe was having to pay £41.00 for the condition of the greens. I understand that they have to be prepared for the winter but having your ball smothered in sand was not enjoyable. I have played here before and would play again.

Such a shame

Nice layout but unfortunately the fairways are like football pitches the tee boxes on severe slopes and the greens had just been spiked and sanded
Not a pleasant experience for £41

Beautiful settling, challenging layout

Very enjoyable Saturday afternoon. The course is beautiful; hilly, lots of trees and some big dog-leg par 4s.

Only negative was the pace of play. Three 4-balls ahead of us meant we walked the course in 4.5 hours

Would definitely return and recommend to anyone looking for a challenging round close to London

Mixed bag

Problem was that all the greens were closed and this was not advertised clearly when booking. Temporary greens were badly mown fairway and this spoiled the game. So a disappointing round which was a pity as we’ve played a number of times and enjoyed it. Will check course conditions more carefully in future, but this type of change should be prominently advertised.

Golfers beware

This course appeared on Golfnow at a reasonable price, when many courses are charging much to high a price, exploiting golfers at this troubling time. However, golfer beware. It was in TERRIBLE condition. 18 temporary greens, that we were not warned of beforehand. Very muddy poor fairways. Overgrown bad tees. The temporary greens were shocking.. I have since seen it advertised at £28. That is an absolute rip off. Even if the temporary greens have been taken off, the rest of the course is not worth half that price. Please steer clear unti at least next spring.

Good course in poor condition

We played on a day when they were temporary greens, which were a joke. They had placed the pins in the roughest bit of fairway they could find.

This used to be a top quality course, but needs some serious investment to get it back to where it should be.

Good course great setting

Had a great day at De Vere. Staff were excellent (especially the lady in the club shop).
Course was well laid out with some challenges for all abilities and also some holes you can really get hold of .greens we’re a bit slow but in decent condition.
Overall the course and golf were great.
Only downside was the amenities after. I’m surprised so many clubs have not organised a way to get simple food available for their customers & De Vere is one of those. With so many golfers on the course they are missing out so much.

Busy day

played as a 2 ball. 4 balls in front wouldn't let us play through. Poor etiquette from inexperienced players. There was a big back log of 4 balls in the day.

Course could have been in better condition, really nicely laid out though with some beautiful holes. Elevated greens were a bit tiring after a while and the greens weren't in great condition. Saying that I would play again though but not on a busy Saturday.

Sunday Golf

Course played well in the sunny conditions. Greens and fairways mostly in good condition. Some tees have not been maintained well though.

Good mix of challenging holes and some to get the score card going. Very hilly, so a buggy is a good option here.

Lots of 3 & 4 balls back to back throughout so pace of play was on the slow side.

I paid £40 to play, I think this is slightly on the steep side overall, but would play there again.

Not a beginners course

First time playing this course, first impression could do with a little bit of TLC, you need to know your club selection, course is quite challenging , bit hilly for my liking, but gives you a good workout.

Wide fairways but slightly poor maintained

The course was challenging with the up and down hill. Most of the fairways were wide and fun to play. We were disappointed with the conditions of the tee off boxes and the bunkers throughout our game, which most of it wasn’t in a good condition. Comparing with other course with similar price range, I expected the course to be better maintained.
