Such a shame they are letting this course go downhill the maintenance of the course is now so ooor the semi rough is a foot high. The fairways and greens were slightly better but had loose clumps if cut grass on them.

It’s a real shame as I used to love playing this course unfortunately the rumour is that it will be turned into a housing estate and staff have been leaving.

Unfortunately it feels like this course has given up as rumours fly about it closing and more housing being built on this site.

The greens were long and unkept which made them very slow and bumpy.

The fairways were extremely long and the semi rough just off of the fairways was neatly unplayable.

I used to love playing this course with its lovely surroundings however the poor condition has really put me off.

My expectations, based on the cheapness of the green fee was low, but I was pleasantly surprised. The course is typically parkland and so, suffers in winter but there are some well designed and challenging holes. Well worth a play, especially if you are still learning the game.

I like to play on a Sunday afternoon after 1500hrs, its good value for money. The course is not busy in the afternoon and you can have a good practice, for example taking several balls on a par 3, or practice chipping and putting on the greens.

Greater by friendly staff at reception. Being a single player, was given through by 2 groups of 2 ball and eventually joined up with another group of 2. Friendly players, course was in good condition and greens were a pleasure to putt on.

Wavendon is a no frills, no nonsense but really pleasant and enjoyable golf experience for those who value a fun round of golf over the label on the designer golf shirt! The driving range is also comfortably the best for miles around and the putting practice green perfectly acceptable. And the prices are good value, food is unpretentious "pub grub". What's not to like, unless you are someone prepared to pay £100+ for a round. Well, the bunkers could do with a bit more sand and maintenance, but that's a criticism that can also be levelled at more expensive courses.

Unfortunately played the course on a cold frosty day and the greens were frozen, so my views may be somewhat distorted. However I thought the current 4 star rating is a little flattering for this course.

For a public course it is quite an interesting one and a nice layout. It is good value for money but I feel the course wasn't in great condition (excluding frozen greens) and whilst there are some good holes, there were quite a few "nothing" holes.

Myself and my partner played here for the first time in early November. Sarah and I both enjoyed the course immensely. Sarah is new to golf, but the course was technical but not too difficult, and being slightly shorter than most, this probably help her too. Unfortunately we only got to hole 13 before the rain really did come down and we chose quit at that stage.

But very nice course, friendly locals and staff. A handy little tuck shop after the 12 green (particularly well placed on this day).

Will definitely be back.
