Nice course, but prior to our booking a large society had teed off. They where out of a days enjoyable golf with some of the members only previously played a few rounds of golf. Result we had to wait on very tee, on every fairway shot and on every green. Result a 5 hour round. Not enjoyable. The course should, as others do, when taking a society booking use course marshals to ensure they maintain a reasonable rate of play. 5 hours not!!
Very Muddy Fairways
I would only play this course in dry conditions in future as the very muddy fairways spoilt the days golf,as finding your ball was extremely difficult and the walking conditions also bad. I think on the day that we played the course should have been closed.
Course in great condition
The course was in great condition despite the heavy rain in recent days. The greens were in perfect condition. The staff were very welcoming. Will definitely return to play this course again.
First time at vicars cross
First impressions, great layout, fairways were clean cut and fast, greens we're very adaptive and easy to read. I must of turned up on a comp day because the speed of play was very very slow, apart from that the course was crisp and clean, each of the hazards had a rescue stick.On the tee, ball cleaners bins, cloths and divot repair kits.
The course had some xcross overs but as long as you we're paying attention it was fine.
The club house has everything you need including a nice pint to finish with.
Played in afternoon. Course fairly busy but no hold ups for our 2 ball. Parkland course in great condition-some tricky holes-greens excellent. Will play again.
Really nice course and in great condition.
I would recommend this course 100%, will be going back before the end of the year for sure.
The course is a good challenge
The course with its tree lined fairways is a great challenge for a mid handicapper. The greens were in very good condition which you would expect for this course. The staff and members were very welcoming. Great day all round.
Lovely Golf Course
We got the weather and I played well so I was going love it anyway, that said, we've been twice before with a society and this is a gem of a course. Not too long, with plenty of variation hole to hole. Immaculate greens and beautiful surroundings. Food here is lovely too if you get to stay back after the round or come as a society. Highly recommended.
It is extremely hard not to like all aspects about this course.
For early in the season Vicars Cross was in outstanding condition, the set up of the course is wonderful and very picturesque. The round was most enjoyable, enhanced by this well maintained course, l have no doubts the members take great pleasure from playing it, and as a visitor l can fully understand why!
Vicars Cross in March 2017
For the time of year and with all the recent rain, the course played well and was reasonably dry under foot. The greens were in good condition and putted true. The green staff have clearly put in a lot of effort and I'm sure this will pay dividends this year. The staff in the Pro shop and the bar couldn't be more welcoming or helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed the day.
Great greens well maintained
A well maintained course with very fast greens for this time of the year which was a surprise for the time of year. I could imagine this would be great to play in the summer and look really stunning, well worth a play. Pro was very helpful and helped me out with a few hints.
Excellent condition for December
We enjoyed our round today. Everyone that we met was friendly and helpful, offering advice about buggies and playing conditions. The course itself is set in beautiful Cheshire countryside, wit lovely views over the rolling meadows. Course design is good, presenting enough challenges to make it interesting, but not too daunting for less experienced players, like me. There are a lot of bunkers, in excellent condition and strategically placed so that considerable skill is required to avoid them. A stream and ditch run all through the course, adding extra hazards. I was grateful for the helpfully placed extra large pond scoops, which did mean that I didn't actually lose any balls. The dips and hills add to the enjoyment. The greens were in magnificent condition for December, rolling straight and true. It is probably best to come prepared with a carry bag in winter, as only winter hedgehog tyres are permitted and, even then, many areas are completely roped off for trolleys. Definitely a course worth playing.
This weekend, has seen some very heavy rain, 1vicars X GC is an inland parkland course which is undulating.
The main problem for the course is drainage, what ever its built on, it does not drain well at all, even though there are drainage ditches everywhere.
Ive played this course in the summer in a open competition, so lets just say that today is not a fair time to leave a review due to the course conditions.
On the whole, Vicars X can offer a good test of golf, bring a good game there in the summer and you will enjoy it, theres quite a few undulations and you can be penalised for a good drive, your ball could find a down hill lie, so local knowledge is a must to score well here.
My 3 ball, met a group following who were a little rude, we were being shouted at for crossing a rope, bearing in mind we were carrying, so how were we expected to hit the ball only 35 ft away?
I guess they were only being a little over protective.
No heating on in the clubhouse, it was freezing, we did have a breakfast which was ok and ok as in value, crockery was cold so a hot brew was not going to happen!
( brought my own thermos anyway, didnt use it in the clubhouse though!)
Would i go back?....Nope...
