Great parkland layout
Lovely course, excellent greens.
Not long, but narrow, challenging, undulating.
Lovely layout with lots of mature trees and a couple of water features.
A great parkland course, excellent value
A great test of golf - not a long course, but really tight and challenging, with a need to be precise off the tee. Undulating and variable, with some great holes, great views, and excellent greens.
Course management the key
Playing here the first time. Pro-shop offers a hole-by-hole crib sheet and yardage cards - take them.
Was hillier than expected.
As with most courses, fairways look wider when viewed from the greens.
Fairways narrowed by trees but undergrowth sparse.
Use the slopes to your advantage.
We found pitching into greens difficult, with most running through.
All in all, great value for money
GSNP Away Day
The welcome in the pro shop and club house afterwards was excellent very friendly and helpful, weather during our visit was excellent for golf and the course generally in good condition fairways and greens were excellent condition and well cared for. The course is not a long course but is not flat the undulations and shape to most holes give it the character and would suit most abilities, some areas where there is tees and greens crossovers means greater care has to be taken, on the whole very good day and well worth the visit we will return in the future.
beautiful course, quite hilly in places, few fairways criss cross so with a full course could be busy but we played in the week and few players around. Greens goodl but not perfect. Really enjoyed the course, would play again.
Lot of blind holes but we were given a detailed pamphlet with info for every hole, which was a great idea and very useful.
Excellent course in excellent condition
It has been a while since we played here and had forgotten how lovely it was.
It’s a extremely hilly course so you will have a good work out as well as plenty of practice at hitting shots in some challenging lies
Just be wary that you play the 6th hole and don’t tee off on the 8th by mistake!!
Great golf club for many reasons
A fabulous course right alongside Uttoxeter race course. Very friendly staff in the pro shop set the day off well. The course was very well kept considering the time of year - nicely undulating fairways and true greens. I will definitely be going back many times in 2019 for sure.
Beware the fast greens!
Totally amazed about the course.. Just beautiful... Friends first time playing here .. Both enjoyed it... Hilly and they thought it was hard work walking around.... We did enquire about buggies however the three parked up outside the pro shop were booked apparently... Or kept back for members... Practice putting green was slick.... And this was exactly how all the greens were.... Couldn't hold a wedge on the greens as they were so fast and slippery.... Slightly spoiled all our cards..... As chips and putts just skidded by... That aside great condition.
Tough but enjoyable course
This is a terrific course with some great views but be prepared for a hard walk as there are some tough climbs to get to those great views.
Lots of blind holes, particularly the first three so beware. Green in good nick and couldn't fault the overall condition.
Talking to members afterwards suggested this is one of the cheaper priced courses but it has the feel of a course that you'd expect to be more exclusive. would play here more often if it was closer to home.
What great condition , especially for the dry weather we are having . Greens are in great condition . Played at the weekend got very busy as the day went on . Tee off at 07:24 . The only point not to be happy at was they only have 6 buggies and it is a hilly course . Make sure you book one if you want one.
Overall bang on great course , nice and friendly not to snooty either :)
Pre World Cup golf
Teed off early so we could get the World Cup quarter final. The guy in the pro shop was first class with his information about the course. I have played here before and considering the recent hot weather the course and the greens were in excellent condition, quite a few quirky holes which keep you thinking and having to try different shots. Will definitely play here again
played on a glorious Sunday afternoon and took the wise decision to hire a buggy...a lesson well learned from previous rounds here. it is hilly in parts and plenty of blind tee shots....a good idea if you have time to drive your buggy up the fairway to get an idea of where youre going. the absence of a driving range just takes a bit off the experience but I'm being a tad picky.. all told the course is beautiful... some really good testing holes where position is better than length off the tee. the only thing we commented on was the speed of the greens...a little slower than you think.... but still true... all in all a worthwhile visit...we had a hot deal and on one of the hottest days this year it seemed apt..... Will go again.
If you walk the course you have to have a decent level of fitness, slightly hilly.... friendly staff though.
Don't miss this gem of course
Course in magnificent condition - a credit to the ground staff at the course. Course layout testing at times but still an enjoyable round. Will definitely play there again.
Challenging but a very good course
Course is very blind, hilly and very challenging. Some short par 4’s but also some tricky long par 4’s. A few water hazards that make this course good for all types of golfers
Poor Course Layout
I have played this course a handful of times however this was the first time i had played it at the weekend and it was busy. The first 8 holes are so tightly packed together its actually dangerous (back 9 much more enjoyable). Never have i been hit by a ball while playing golf however this round i was hit on the back by a ball from the group playing behind and nearly hit on 4 other occasions. Nearly every tee short is blind which is my only defense for the group that hit me, however they were all members and should know better.
£20 is not a lot to pay for a round of golf but for the same price The Manor is a better choice in my opinion and is just down the road.
Although the weather was fine, the course had suffered from earlier rainfall and was heavy underfoot. Driving mats were in use but facilitated the use of tees. Leaves were in abundance and made ball finding problematical on many fairways. Greens were in good condition. The course provides for a good test in normal circumstances. The terrain is undulating and there is plenty of variety of holes. Ordinarily provides very good value for money at a competitive price point. Practice facilities available and comfortable club house providing a selection of beers and food.
