Great game of golf, greens excellent good food, great value. Green keepers do a great job
Not the hardest course. But challenging enough.
A not to strenuous walk. Bit to wet and windy on the day though.
Well maintained Course
A very cold december day but the course was in excellent condition. The greens were flat and true. Some excellent holes but 4 very up snd down holes
Course to definitely play
The staff seem genuinely happy to greet you, the course is great, the members welcome you. Just a good corse to play
Mature Parkland Course with some good views
Played this course on a Monday morning in October and there were virtually no players immediately in front or behind us. As a result the round took only three and a quarter hours to complete.
The course is well laid out with wide open fairways, in good condition and well maintained. The greens are visible from the Tees on almost every hole
Although a number of trees are present on the course, I did not lose any balls during the round, or waste time searching due to only a minimal amount of long grass around the course
Noise from planes taking off at the adjoining Bristol Airport is most noticeable on the front nine, as was the smell of aviation fuel due to the gusting wind blowing from the direction of the South West
However, I would definitely play this course again which I consider to be one of the better courses in the area.
The food in the clubhouse was enjoyed after the game.
Nice course in Bristol
Good layout. The course plays more difficult tha it appears. A lot of slope on fairways. Definitely requires employing some course management decisions. The greens were a bit inconsistent with pace. I played after weeks of drought. Ground was hard...difficult to stop the ball on greens.
Overall I enjoyed the course. Some nice views. It will be better after some rain.
Would recommend it.
Greens in good condition
The fairways are very dry with the ball running a considerable distance but in view of the prolonged period of hot weather the greens are in very good condition.
Great friendly staff, good value for money for our 4 ball playing through tee-off times, a challenging course.
A good course for a 3 hour round
The noise from neighbouring Bristol airport may put some off .
This is a good course for those looking for somewhere that they can get round in 3hrs or so.
The greens are in very good condition with enough rough on the course to punish wayward shots.
There are few challenging holes to offset those which are typical dead straight parkland.
Great course but.....
I love this course but we followed a Seniors Stapleford and frankly the organisation was poor and the lack of attention by the Seniors to pace of play, to say the least, lacked. The Seniors went of in twos and three when fours could have been more appropriate and saved time but really, respect others and move forward as quickly as possible . Filling in score cards stood on the green, not teeing off until the players in front are in the green on a par 5 beggars belief. Love this club but won't join unless players are respected.
Course in great condition bearing in mind April weather. Played when hot. Could have done with water station to refill. Overall not a single complaint. Good work ground staff.
A great way to while away a afternoon.
Greens & fairways in great condition for time of year. Looking forward to going back in the new year with a few friends.
Slow play killing this course
Great course, good club, great condition but please please please do something about slow play.
Yesterday in abthree ball took almost one hour over normal. Followed a four ball who ambled along.
That's down to course management.
Pace of play a real issue
Played Tall Pines 10+ times in the last year. At the right time, you can get round in 3 hours or less. At the wrong time, behind the wrong groups, it can take 5 hours. On this day we teed off behind two 3 balls, 3 wives and their 3 husbands. We were expecting to be held up a bit, but at a convenient moment, that they would let us through as a 2 ball, who being reasonably fit and young, would not hold them up once we got infront of them. But no hint of that, no apology for their poor and slow play. Took 3 hours to play 10 holes before unfortunately one of the group of women broke their ankle, at which point we helped before giving up and heading home. Shame as I enjoy playing Tall Pines as it's a local course for me but with the slow play issue being a regular thing I can't say I'll be back again soon.
Great course for all standards it's a very forgiving course. Well maintained.
Well Worth the Journey
Tall Pines is 40+ minutes from home, but everything one looks for in a golf course makes the journey well worthwhile. The setting is extremely pleasant once one gets used to a plane or two taking off not far away; the fairways are clearly defined, as is the first cut, and on Tuesday they were in fabulous condition. While the course offers a range of challenges ( although water hazards are not a feature) a decent player ought to accept the blame for a poor performance.
We found everybody very friendly on the course and in the bar. We are blessed with several courses nearer than Tall Pines - and we play some more frequently - but TP is consistently the best.
If you want a course with some tremendous views and a bit of plane spotting, then this is the one for you, but expect to be hearing the word FORE shouted throughout your round. This is a very tight course with several fairways running parallel with each other, when the course is busy like it was today then balls will be flying everywhere. This course is well maintained but lacks a bit of character, there is nothing that makes this course stand out apart from the views. Played as a 2 ball and started at12.45, course was extremely busy with 4 ball groups on every hole, that said the 4 balls were good enough to let us through. Wouldn't be rushing back to play this course any time soon.
A lovely course that I would play again.
Unfortunately, we (2 of us) got stuck behind a four ball on the third. At no point did they offer for us to play through. Made for a long day.
