We used to play here regularly when it was Traditions.
Decided to give it a try after years and could not have been more disappointed. Assuming the land is being primed for development and it's now a rubbish 9 hole course.
Wouldn't recommend and won't be going back!
Warning - 9 hole Par 3 course only.,
Just be forewarned, this is no longer an 18 hole course. Not knocking the par 3 course, but please be aware the 9 hole par 3 course is the only course remaining at this time.
Sad to see
Had played this course when called “Traditions” and when I booked all I express a change of name, it’s no longer an 18 hole course but now a 9 hole par 3, most holes around 140y. Felt sorry for the 1 guy who helped us, sounds like a lot of people had arrived expecting 18 holes. There were about 3 temporary greens. I can’t fault the 1 guy working there today (was on course) unless you fancy a par 3 game to sharpen up approach shots I wouldn’t bother, sad to see what was once a lovely course in the state it low is in.
This is now a par 3, 9 hole course
Beware this is now a par 3, 9 hole course not 18 as advertised. Some of the greens are temporary, shame was a half decent course before. Probably ideal place for beginners or kids to get into the game but I doubt that I will be back. The bar/facilities were shut so I can't rate them and the only staff I saw were mowing old fairways to put new greens on
Not a golf course
It's only a poorly kept 9 hole pitch and putt now. Most holes don't have greens. The rough is just fields and there are beer cans everywhere. Avoid like the plague
Great course for many different levels of golfer
I recently played at Twisted Stone for the first time, and found the staff to be very welcoming and the facilities to be very good. The course is fast improving, as evidenced by the amount of green keepers present, and although many reviews seem to complain about poor course conditions, I found the course in general to be great. There are interesting holes with many hazards, that can prove tricky for a more experienced golfer aiming for a low score, however lower ability golfers will be able to think their way around said hazards if they play sensibly - making for a great round of gold for a reasonable price no matter what golfing experience you have. Also, under 16s play free with an adult, so it is a great place for younger golfers leading the game to experience a slightly trickier course.
Overall, great round of golf, friendly staff and will definitely play there again in the future
I have played the course several times.
At the moment I am not a member of any club and play where I find a good deal.
On this particular Sunday we teed off at 14.00 and paid only £16.00.
So for value you will struggle to beat this.
Awful tees, awful fairways, horrendous greens, was like playing on a ploughed field at times. Not worth the money. Avoid this course
Could be a great course...
I played here last winter and the course was in poor condition which I thought was a shame as it has a reasonably good layout and some challenging holes. With the summer upon us I thought it would be a good opportunity to try it out again in the hope it would now be in good condition. Alas no, seems to be suffering from lack of investment. Although not unplayable, some of the fairways were ropey and majority of the greens were awful - seems they are not watered so are mainly just dead grass.
I think with investment the layout could make it a great course to play, but unfortunately I'm not going back unless things change significantly.
The course has a good layout but the conditions of it let it down. It needs a bit of care for the fairway (very patchy) and the greens (bumpy and some in bad condition) then it would be a very good course.
The staff were nice, but the food options were poor. You may need to pop out to get something to eat or bring your own (until they hire a chef).
If they improve the fairways and greens, I would be keen on playing the course again.
A nice walk. The course lay out is good. Difficult on a freezing winters day, when the fairways a boggy meadow. Par3 10th a nice hole over water. Found the greens OK tbf. Only paid a tenner, so that's about right at the moment.
have played many courses in the area and this was definitely the worst, the greens were in terrible condition, not worth paying £30 for.
Extremely poor conditions
Is just a shame that this course is in such so bad conditions because the layout is great. Fairways are dirty and the grass is not well cut. The greens are in extremely bad there was a big hole in the 10th. (I even took a picture because this was unbelievable). The general maintenance of the course is poor. There is only one practice net which is completely destroyed and there seems no intention to replace it or repair. £30 to play in this course is really expensive, you can play in much better courses nearby for a similar price or even less. I am not coming back .
expensive for the quality delivered ...
Quite breeze but was a round of prep for comp the next weekend for me, so needed to get out. Fairways were more rough than anything on the front 9 (back better). most greens were either too full of pitch mark or skanky ... I think for 25£ ... i was expecting better than that. Photo of the worse green attached. Back 9 was OK ...
Lovely layout some serious plotting holes
Greens need a good bit of care good in places but terrible in others
all in all you can see the work going in will take time the potential is massive
Be careful not to price yourself out of the game
Lots of fun
The coarse has been laid out fantastically! A really good design and probably one of the best that I've played so far. If only it had the care it deserves.
I felt that the coarse had been allowed to get in to a worse state than was acceptable. Even though it had been dry for a good few weeks, there was plenty of water there in the ponds which makes me think that the greens, which were at this point only half alive, had large areas of bumpy, dry soil where grass used to be and were clearly not being cared for properly, could really do with a new set of sprinklers. I personally would love to see the greens get the attention they deserve. It is obvious that there was a lot of money spent on the coarse when it was built.
A few of the bunkers were also looking quite in need of a little tlc.
Overall I would say it really should be on everyones list of coarses played/to play. The staff were friendly and willing to give advice. The atmosphere was friendly and regulars were quite happy to help or let you play through.
I will play there again and I am actively encouraging my friends to go too. Please don't let the state of greens put you off. It is only a small part of the coarse after all and the getting to them is the best bit anyway.
I hope you all go and enjoy it as much as I did.
Hadn't played course for some time and so had forgotten how difficult it can be!
Interesting course with numerous hazards and features which can catch out the unwary, particularly if you have not played there before. Need to be on your game to score well and high handicappers can be punished if not accurate.
A good test of your all round game.
Disgustingly slow play
Played on a Saturday at 12.42. Staff were very friendly. However, walked off after 12 holes as there was two large societies playing. Won't go back, should ask for a refund
