Could be really nice
The good - practice facilities are good, course layout has backbone for a really good challenge, bunkers well maintained and lots of sand.
The bad - charging £32 for a round I would expect the course to be in good condition based on the time of the year. The fairways were not cut, the tee boxes were like sand pits and the greens were frankly appalling.
Having played here last year and thoroughly enjoying the course, we were disappointed that the current management have let the course "go". Could be a good golf course but my advice is to play the course nearby which is very well looked after.
A nice friendly golf club, very welcoming. Enjoyed the course and the day. My only criticism is that the fairways are very wide. Food was good to finish off a nice day out.
Cost of round
Course was in fantastic condition the only thing was not happy about paid £54 for the 2 ofusto play through tee off times if we rang the course would of cost us £18-50 when we went to check in the lady told us so will ring direct next time
Nice course' nice people but pace of play is always slow. 3 hour 15 minute course for a 3 ball' ends up way over 4 hours...please get a member of staff out on a buggy to speed up play.
Enjoyable but slow
The main problem here as with many courses is slow play' i'm 58' as a 3 ball 3 hours 15 mins for a 6000 yard course is a nice pace' but will often take 4/30 plus. People just seem reluctant to call you through' even when it's clear in front.
A Lovely Park Course
Out annual trip away, where we find a course on Tee Off Times. The course was in great condition, the greens well maintained and moderately quick. Some aspects of the course are reasonably challenging. On the day there was a club competition, so we got about a third of the way round before we started to get held up. The round took about 4 hours 15 mins, which would have just under 4 hours for our threesome. The club house is very nice, it looks quite new. I would definitely play here again when next in the area.
Game at Stratford Oaks
Very friendly staff and players. I’d had lessons from the pro here but this is the first opportunity I had of playing the course. Loved it!
Lovely parkland course
This was the fourth time of playing Stratford Oaks, the last time the greens had been affected by some sort of fungus so were in a terrible condition. I am pleased to say that this has now largely been eradicated and the greens were in nice condition. As with most golf courses at the moment the fairways were dry and scorched but at least you get a lot of roll!! Bunkers were well filled with good quality sand and there were ball washers on each tee (all full). The course is a traditional parkland so nice and easy to walk with no hills and fairly wide fairways. All in all a very pleasant course which I will definitely play again.
Excellent value for money
Course in great condition, friendly staff and great value.
Lovely course becoming a member
Have played a couple of times before early in the season and wanted to play again now it has dried out.
Course is in great condition and greens are nearly there after a long winter.
The bunkers could do with a little more work or even a little more sand and they are almost unplayable on some holes.
Very happy overall and have decided to make this my new home club.
Well worth a visit to this hidden gem.
Usually slow here but it was quiet' maybe the windy weather had something to do with it .
Nice friendly welcome from lady at reception.
The course was in pretty good nick for the time of year' apart from some drainage work they were doing' but the greens were excellent .
Got called through when we caught a few groups up' all in all a very enjoyable day.
one of the slowest rounds I have ever played; the 3 ball ( members ) in front of us would not let us play through, eventhough they were only hitting their drives 25 yards. incredibly they wouldn't drive off until the group in front of them were 300 yards ahead !!!The 2 ball behind us gave up and went home and the group behind them did the same
Lovely course....superb greens !
Booked the night before for a 07:32 tee time. £26 fee seemed fare. Really enjoyed the coarse layout and the green surfaces were fantastic ! Tee boxes well defined. Staff and members were very friendly....will definitely play here again.
A very enjoyable round of golf
Course was in very good condition both fairways and greens , despite the long dry period over recent weeks. Pace of play was somewhat slow having gone out behind several mixed pairs matches. Sadly did not complete full round due to twisting my back on a drive. Walked off after 16 holes. Would still recommend the course to all levels of golfers , super value for money.
Nice course, very friendly members
I was very impressed by the friendliness and warm welcome received not only by the staff but by all the members I came across.
Pace of play was very good, I was out on my own and got waved through fairly quickly by any groups in front without having to wait which came as a shock to the system as generally when you're out on your own not many groups let you through at other courses.
Playing off the yellow tees the course is quite short (will be playing off the white tees next time). However, the majority of the shorter Par-4s are set up quite well and require a bit of thought of the tee.
The course in general was well maintained & greens were very firm. The practice facilities also looked very good.
If you are looking to join a club or just after a round I would recommend paying them a visit, my first impressions were very good - I will certainly be back again soon.
Greens were a masterpiece
The greens were absolutely spotless. Thoroughly enjoyed my round, excellent value for money and will be playing there again!
Was not disappointed!
Booked this course for a round with my friend on a course outside of our home city and one which neither had played before so didn't know what to expect.
I've been playing a few years now and my friend is relatively new to the game. We found the course very very good for players of our standard which resulted in me hitting my best score!
Very open but you also have a lot to think about. The staff were very very friendly and not patronising like some experiences.
Can't wait to come and play here again especially at the price of £12.50! Exceptional course!
I like the course and it's usually in good nick..got stuck behind 2 really slow groups, who had an empty golf course in front of them.
I don't expect any to rush their game if that,s the speed they play at, but it would be nice it be called through....5 hours for a three ball just too slow.
