Course in poor condition on the fairways where very little attention has been given to drainage, probably due to overplaying. Greens ok but very slow, some like putting through cotton wool. Pro shop not open so check in through the bar where no one seemed to be in a hurry, too busy chatting with each other

Friendly staff shame about the course condition

Having played both courses at Sherfield Oak over the past 10yrs, but not since 2019, my business partner & I decided to play the longer of the 2 courses as we could not get on our preferred Basingstoke course (Weybrook Park)

On arrival the staff were friendly as I checked us in, but things went downhill very quickly from there.

The state of the tee box on the first was unfortunately a sign of what lay ahead on the course; it was like taking a tee shot from the first cut of rough but with large divots where the grass had not been cut.

Onto the fairways; to be honest we were actually hoping on most occasions that our balls found the first cut of rough as at least there would hopefully be some grass under our ball!.

The fairways were like a patchy cow field with more bare patches of dirt/mud covered with a sprinkling of grass seed than any golf course I have played, we even agreed on preferred lies, but due to the sparseness of grass even that didn't really help.

The greens were in much better condition (although not difficult) & at least had a healthy covering of grass, but these were very slow as they had not been cut & were more like some course fairways than greens. However the fringe of the greens were in a similar state to the fairways, making it impossible to putt from off the green (even 6" off) yet equally difficult to chip on due to the lack of grass & overall poor condition.

We could also see parts of the Waterloo Course from some of the holes & it seemed to be in equally poor overall condition.

While £25 per person (+booking fee) is not a huge amount of money for a round of golf, it would be difficult to justify even £10 per person due to the state of the course.

Needless to say we will not be rushing back to Sherfield Oak anytime soon!

Cracking course given the conditions

With the weather being very hot and with no sight of rain, we were expecting firm ground. Whilst the firm ground can’t be avoided, It was spectacular to see how amazing the greens were kept! Honestly, some of the best surfaces I’ve played on for a while and had plenty of character to give you a challenge.

The course is very interesting, fairway bunkers and tight fairways make for a tough outing.

The only dampener on the afternoon was the slow play. With evenings being shorter it’s important for some pace of play if we can get round in an after work round before dark. A couple of parties obviously didn’t mind playing in the dark, but it was a fairly frustrating note to what was an overall pleasurable experience.

Pleasantly surprised

Took a chance after reading some dodgy reviews about the state of the greens. Was really pleased to find the course in great condition and the greens were in good nick. Mature course and a really nice layout with heavy rough in places meaning you’ve got to drive it reasonably straight. Well worth 35 quid. Would definitely play here again

Great course and greens 90% recovered

The Wellington is a lovely challenging course and the fairways are in very good condition. The greens recently suffered a disease which madecthem very pitted and bobbly, however they are now 90%+ recovered and generally very good again. Staff are very friendly and a good bar serving drinks and good quality food. Definitely recommend.

Greens are diseased

The course is lovely, however the greens are awful currently due to a disease. Recovering slowly.

Good course with excellent greens

I have played this course a number of times in recent months and despite the very hot summer the course has been maintained in very good condition. In particular the greens play very well and are consistent throughout which is very welcome. I would recommend. Staff are friendly and the facilities are very good. For fifteen pounds through teeofftimes this is great value.

Slightly above average course

I was a member at Sherfield back in 2011 so I know this course well.

The condition of the course is not as good as I remember it - but then I think I stopped playing around October back then. Greens are pretty decent but fairways were really struggling. There's also a lot of 'instant ball-lost' rough that's easy to hit into - make sure you have a decent supply of balls if you're a high handicapper.

The layout of the course it pretty decent: apart from a slight slog between 9 and 13 (where the holes get long and straight) things are kept varied and challenging. I think 'average' is the best term for most things - not too long or short, not narrow or wide, not too much rough or too little.

If you can play this for sub £25 it's definitely worth adding to the list - the club house is a nice place to enjoy a pint afterwards at least.
