It could be so much better
The course layout I really liked, not driver off every hole, but a positional golf course.
It doesnt look like iits had any money spent on it in years .
Could be a real little Gem,
The course needs some TLC. Some of the greens were struggling (1st) and bunkers were in a poor condition.
A round to make you think
Despite the awful weather (thanks storm Alex) I really enjoyed my round here. It’s not a course for the boomers out there and requires thought and a straight line.
The greens were super fast, goodness knows how they play when dry! There was some damage caused by squirrels but there’s little the club can do about this.
Staff were friendly and helpful.
Didn’t have any food so cannot comment.
We will be ack again and soon.
Slower than a heard of Tortoise running through peanut butter
The conditions were perfect for a Sunday session, but from the very 1st Tee it was apparent that it was gonna be a long one.
But it wasn't entirely clear until the 4th Hole when at one point there were no less than 4 groups on the same hole.
There was the group in front of me "The searchers" (searching for every ball for a good 6-8 minutes each) on the Green.
Then us, waiting approx 60yards away, watching the shenanigans.
Followed by the group that less us through on the 3rd hole already. Waiting where their 1st shots lay
Followed by the group that had been behind us. Sitting on the grass on the tee off, looking on in dismay.
The course is lovely, but some marshaling would be great on busy days. Noone wants to be the person to approach another group to let them through.
All in all - it took 4.5hours to complete our round.
Anyway summer is on the way out, so we may see the courses open up a bit more now.
Makes you think!
Far from the longest course but each shot has to be well thought out and executed well with narrow fairways and some tricky greens. Very enjoyable
This course is not all about brute force, it's more a thinking mans golf course.
Dog legs, lots of narrow tree lined fairways, and some tricky greens keeps you on your metal.
Course was in good shape, greens were well watered and a little slow as a result.
All In all it was an enjoyable round.
A welcome beer on the bar terrace overlooking the first tee & eighteenth green finished it off nicely.
First time we have played Theydon Bois, fantastic course nice challenge and nice layout. Can’t wait till play again .
Great value for money
Excellent course layout
Course in very good condition, greens slightly bumpy
Could be so much better
I loved the layout but the course didn’t look like it has had any money spent on it in months/ years.
The potential is great but you have to look after the asset and it doesn’t appear as if the club has
NOT FOR THE BIG HITTERS!
I wished I had left my driver at home.this is a tight course where accuracy is paramount,I would definitely approach it differently if playing again.I’m not that confident with my irons so struggled here.The greens were only in fair condition but also fast,and a few had one too many unrepaired pitch marks.Also because it’s not a long course be prepared for a bit of a wait if you have a 3-4 ball in front.if some of the greens were brought up to a higher standard I can see this course being a very enjoyable experience for accurate golfers handicapped 18 and lower.
Short and sweet
Its not the longest of courses and you can either catch it in a good condition or average conditions.
I would say its a good practise course for beginners as well as intermediate golfers if they are looking for a quick tee off on an afternoon
Nice Andy great value for money
Considering it was January the course held up well - no winter greens either. It’s a fair course and nothing too difficult going through the Forest. The 3 holes over the road are in less good condition than the rest of the course. Staff were very friendly and for a tenner I have no complaints- got around quickly and looking forward to trying it out in the summer.
Will definitely play again and seriously considering becoming a member.
