amazing greens

Played Vicars Cross a few times. Played twice this year, the whole course seems to flow well. The greens were particularly good with good speed and roll.

19th hole offered a great local beer and good food. Will be back,

First Time Playing

Managed to get a hot deal for 25 pound a round at Vicars Cross. Never played the course before but heard good things and it didn’t disappoint at all. Staff really friendly and before the round had a full English which was very reasonably priced. Fairways, greens, tees the lot, in perfect condition. Was quiet being a bank holiday Monday so at some points felt like we had the course to ourselves. Couldn’t really fault the place other then only being one par 3 on the front 9 but it made up for it on the back 9. Great finishing hole also and will definitely being coming back. Very happy we got to play it in the summer.

Society Woes

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.

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.

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.

Very Wet

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...
