Nice course, with some challenging holes
We enjoyed our round and found it more challenging than expected. The course was in very good condition and the greens were excellent.
Only slight negative is the absence of a pro shop!
Used to be a friendly good value course
Trolley ban because of all the rain.
Course ok but it has lost its friendliness and character.
Went into tne club house for a drink after playing they got our drinks then brought the mop bucket out obviously dont want the club house to be used
Played here many times before and always enjoy it. We played our first round of the season here, the course was in good condition generally but considering the recent weather it was a bit boggy in places. Greens were very good for early Feb.
Pace of play was fairly slow going due to a number of society groups in front of us - a usual 3 hour round took 4 hours, waiting on every tee box in 2 degree temperatures didn't do much for morale !
That aside we did enjoy it and will definitely be back for more In the spring summer and autumn !
I know this has been said a lot on here but PLEASE put some ball washers by the tee boxes, for such a small thing it really lets the course down.
I have played this course 40-50 times and have never been told no trollies on the day. the course is tiring at the best of times but having to carry made it even worse. The course was fairly dry so no idea why no trollies.
Love this course and would become a member if it had a driving range.
Great Course for a round
We had a very nice day at the Three Locks and would recommend the Course to all levels of player.
Tough 1st 6 holes as very hilly but very good fun, flattens from 7th tee, good mix of short and long dog legs
Another great round at 3 locks
Lovely course , interesting and challenging holes .
Keeps you thinking all the way round.
Free American Golf Round so took a friend and shared his green fee
Friendly welcome in Pro Shop. Course was in decent condition although bunkers had not been worked since recent heavy rains last week.
Greens fairly true but haven't yet speeded up.
Layout is fun with a great variety of holes with plenty of doglegs and water on back 9!!
All in all we both enjoyed ourselves even though we caught up with a very slow Society. Joined up for 2 holes with another pair in front of us.
Well worth a visit
Really enjoyable round
Agree with some other comments, 1st 6 holes very hilly but certainly the effort. The 1st par 3, 80 yards goes to show that you don't need lots of bunkers and long distance to make a hole exciting. Each hole was slightly different lots of doglegs and some really good thinking holes where position is more important than distance. Only criticism was lack of signs for next tee, 1st time playing and would have got lost afew times if we didn't keep up with the 2 ball in front.
Course is good and clubhouse is fantastic, greens were very slow so a bit of a let down but the rest was fairly good, maybe just a little more tlc and it could be great
Great little course
Good course and facilities.
Fantastic price @ £13pp for weekend golf.
No waiting time between holes & fortunate to have lovely weather.
Greens are in good condition although beware that pace varied (as expected) due to terrain and green placement.
As mentioned with previous reviews, first six holes are played up/down hill & the remainder are flat with woodland/ water hazards.
Enjoyable course and would recommend to all types of golfer.
Note - there was a club match & private function held on same day which led to the car park being full. Might be worth checking what's on beforehand and car sharing preferable
Best £11 I've ever spent
Fantastic value for money. First 6 holes on the hill are a test of fitness but every hole has to be worked out. Last 12 on level land give you a chance to make a score. Lovely modern clubhouse with nice patio area
Nice little course. Great for the money
So firstly, I am not one of those golfers who wants to play the most challenging conditions, shooting over ravines into heavy winds. Give me a nice day out with some sunshine and lovely views and I'm happy. And on that front this course - like many in the surrounding towns - scores very highly. It's incredibly cheap and buggies are available for a correspondingly low price.
It's a course of two halves, or one third and two thirds more precisely. The first six are very very hilly. With lovely views over surprisingly pretty countryside. You are up and down hill every hole with the second hole a short 90yard par 3 with a drop of about 30 yards or so!
Holes 7 and onwards by contrast are well laid-out and flat flat flat. To be honest, I much prefer this, and as something of a weekend golfer I prefer to start on the 7th and play back to the 6th - something the course managers are not averse to.
The only 3 stars are for the condition of the course which is fairly scruffy in parts and the off-course amenities which are basic but then... you're not being charged a great deal of money for them so you really can't complain. Highly recommended for people who want what I want from a golf course.
