Great morning at Stapleford Abbotts
Stapleford Abbotts provides a good challenge to the higher handicap golfer with a number of lakes and streams throughout the course.
When we arrived the staff warned us it was wet and water proofs were needed which worried me slightly but having played at other courses recently which were in terrible shape - flooded and muddy - SA was is great condition. Few slightly flooded spots on fairways and some bunkers had turned into small ponds but overall the condition of the course was great. The greens were is great condition considering how much rain we have had. Water proof shoes are defo recommended though!
Pace of play perfect with us going out first and making the most of the clocks changing and the early light. At £17 for a round on golfnow it was great value.
Good value for money
At the price I paid (£23 for 18 holes) i thought this course was spot on. It was in decent condition, the ball ran properly on the fairways and the greens were nice and putted well for the price. It's a short course but it's well designed so that you still need to think your way around it a bit. I played with a friend who is just getting into golf and it was perfect for that. Probably a little easy for anyone below 18 handicap (i ahot below handicap playing it first time and played ok but not great) but a nice course at a good price.
Too busy and too slow
Tee off at 13:20 delayed by 15 minutes. Did not finish till 18:15 due to slow play. Course was fun , interesting layout. Some holes very near main arterial, so noisy.
Course not managed !
Played this course several times, but today was really bad. Got to 1st tee & 6 groups were in line, all asking each others tee times, but should have, 1 of the 5 staff we saw when we went in to clubhouse up at 1st tee making sure people were going off in correct times. After teeing off 20 minutes late , took overv 41/2 hours & waited on every hole.
Think they are just booking in far too many time slots & no one out on the course managing it ! Nice course, will play during the week in future.
Lovely round of golf
Always a good test. It's a good track with many interesting holes. Good greens (much better than some others i've seen lately). Good practice area. I'll definitely return. (Did have to call the clubhouse to get the fourball ahead to hurry up - and credit to them they came out to sort it). Shot 80.
5 hour round
Nice course ruined by slow pace due to very slow society.
More marshalling needed on course!
Good course with some interesting and challenging holes
Overall a pretty good course with a good mix of holes. Condition is pretty good, although some of the tee boxes could perhaps use a little maintenance during the day.
The only real issue we had was groups of people from the gym and/or fitness facility on site running across the 18th fairway as we were coming down. Which is distracting at best and dangerous at worst.
Great course, does need to have some on course toilet facilities though these may have been closed due to covid.
