Have played this course many times before and am normally happy with the general condition of the course. It was only after I had paid online and turned up that I was told of some maintenance going on. The greens had been hollow tined (most courses are closed whilst this severe maintenance takes place) however, these greens were awful. they had been sanded and on some of the greens there was at least a cm of sand, which made them unplayable. Also the green keepers were brushing the greens whilst the holes were still in play, and thus forced you to not be able to finish the hole. The worst example of this was when we played the 17th and had to walk off the hole as the green was being brushed.....so teed off on the 18th only for the green keeper to drive past us on the fairway and immediately start brushing the 18th green forcing us to not be able to finish. To top it off we had to pay full twilight price and only completed 13 holes. This course clearly prioritises conning people out of money over providing golfers a course they are able to play. I advised this to a colleague who has now pulled a society competition away from the course. I did complain at the time, but just got told to read the terms and conditions when I book ! Your priorities are very disappointing Meyrick.
It was a pleasure to play Meyrick Park today, the greens were great and the pace of play very good.
Great course in need of rain
first time at the course found the layout challenging had to think about each hole the fine hot summer has killedthe fairways sure when the rain returns it will be be better for all levels of golfer
See you again soon
The course is normally great, unfortunately the greens had just been sanded, we should have been informed of this before we turned up to play! Would not have played there if we had known the condition of the course.
Have played this course many times and thoroughly enjoy it, a great challenge. However, our greatest challenge yesterday was the total lack of knowledge of golf etiquette by Club Members. It's common courtesy for a slow 3 ball to call through a faster 2 ball. We asked to be allowed to play through, only to be told "we don't do that here!"
We waited on every single shot, thanks guys???
Greens are fantastic!!
What a course, I would say one of the best around.
Greens are second to none. Great roll and fairs ways good condition. Can't recommend it enough. Tough though off whites.
Great test of golf
A great test of golf, good par 3s, tight tree lined fairways and the condition of the greens were excellent!
Worth the £22 green fee. Best to play it from March-September otherwise you might be playing a couple of temporary greens.
Well worth a visit.
After arriving at the complex we soon realised that the facilities and the lodge itself were definitely worth the money as were the first 4 holes on this ‘Championship’ course however as we got to the 5th Hole this all started to change. As one of us walked onto the tee box we were approached by a dog that was jumping up at us and was neither on a lead nor under control, I understand after playing that there is some public foot paths across the course (not mentioned on the website) so thought it was just a one off, which if it was the case we wouldn’t have minded so much however seeing as this happened multiple times on this course I do not believe this to be acceptable again for a Championship Course. This was not the only problem on the course, half way through mid swing there were inconsiderate dog walkers calling their dog’s names and playing fetch across our fairway, not to mention running across the green as we were trying to putt!! As we headed onto the back 9, there was someone flying a remote control aeroplane from a tee box which as you can imagine was extremely distracting as you are trying to tee off it was more like playing on a public park than playing on a ‘Championship Course’. We got to the 14th green yet again to be approached by another dog which ran onto the green and not only moved one of our balls but continued to try and chew it and run off with it, for us this was the final straw and at this point we walked off the course. After this experience we would not only never recommend it but we were certainly not playing it again the following day. NO REFUND OR RESPONCE TO VARIOUS E-MAILS.
