Enjoyable round - welcome a bit awkward
On arriving at the club shop there was uncertainty whether my Golf Now tee booking would be honoured, with the pro shop staff member clearly unhappy that i'd paid £32.50 and not the £42.50 that walk up visitors are obliged to pay. It was sorted with the help of the starter (i assume) who was helpful and gave good advice on some of the local rules . The course itself was challenging with a lot of interesting little holes, where accuracy is rewarded over length off the tee. It's in great condition despite recent heavy rain. We really enjoyed the round and the great views over London and Kent.
Challenging but worthwhile
Judging from others scores (and my own) this course is about 5 shots more difficult than the average. Reasons - narrow fairways, plenty of trees,, frequent hazards including bunkers and out-of bounds, and smallish greens often with sharp slopes off to one side. So it presents a challenge and makes you think. Greens and tee-boxes in excellent order. Some fairways still showing a few signs of last summer's drought but this is clearly being addressed. Recoomended.
Excellent London Course
Been on the hunt for a great local London course to London Bridge and this has blown everything else Iv found out the water. Great well kept greens and fairways with a fun challenging layout for all types of golfers. HIGHLY recommend if your living in central London and don’t want to travel miles for a top course.
