A great municipal course.
Conditions were good. A couple of hills but quite flat considering the location. 4/5 holes up and down the hill.
Greens were decent considering time of year.
I would recommend this course and might even bring my society.
It cost £13.50 for 18 holes playing proper greens. What more do you need.
Great municipal shame about the etiquette
Course is in great condition and kne for opening up the shoulders as most fairways are quite forgiving. Greens have been in excellent condition all summer
The problem is you get players just walking on and squeezing between bookings and play is then slow. Took me lost 5 hours and I was on my own as two guys, in Jean's and walking boots jumped on I'm front of me. I also encountered players in ripped Jean's and football shirts who played the entire round with a 3 wood...even on the green!
I'm mo golf snob but surely if you have paying members or want to charge the same rate as some private clubs this needs addressing.
Revisited after many years of not playing Townley. Had a great afternoon on a hot deal and thoroughly enjoyed our game. Course in excellent condition.
Played this course many times and always gives value for money. Greens ok not brilliant, fairways well cut. A good course for any handicap player, quite wide fairways but smallish greens, few holes with out of bounds but not many ditches. Well maintained course, car park could do with being bigger as nearly always full as shared for other amenities. Excellent value for money and would recommend you try it, not very hilly and quite good pace of play.
