Well worth a visit

Our first visit to wells won’t be our last. A warm welcome from the staff. Stunning views as you climb to the top of the hill. A course in good condition despite playing in February. An interesting layout with a couple of very testing holes. A good selection of reasonably priced food in the clubhouse. Great to sit in the sun and watch golf from the clubhouse balcony. Looking forward to returning in the summer.

I enjoyed the course, Tight challenging course

Spectacular views from several tee boxes.

The course is very narrow and demanding off the tee. Also, many small greens that are unforgiving of a slightly errant shot.

I enjoyed the course, but would want to play again only when I am back to an 18 or lower handicap. Not really a course for higher handicaps.

Good course, well maintained and friendly staff.

We enjoyplaying at Wells GC which is about an hours drive away. The course is challenging with mature trees offering challenges to keep the ball straight. The course does not have a lot of rough which can cause slower play so the pace of play was good. We were let through by a group of four members.
Will play at Wells again.

Great layout and friendly club

Despite this winters weather the course was in very good condition and played well. The layout is really interesting and challenging without being too clever. Everyone was friendly and helpful and there is a spacious driving range for a warm up before you tee off.

Great course and value for money

Love this place.
Very friendly staff and members.
Course was in immaculate condition for the time of the year.
A good test of golf with some long and tricky holes which make you think about position as well as distance.
Looking forward to going back soon .

Great course

Love this course, great people and perfect atmosphere.
However the pace of play needs to be monitored because some players simply do not understand the rules and do not allow players through.

Would recommend

Nice pro in the shop who was welcoming and helpful. Played a 2 ball on a Sunday morning and was quiet. Course was a bit wet in places but good for this time of year in comparison to most other courses. Great views of Glastonbury Tor from the top of the hill as well. Would definitely recommend. Can imagine it would be great in the height of summer.

Wells Golf Club

Beautifully landscaped mature golf course. Conditions were a little damp underfoot and fairway grass in need of cutting. Steep hills up and down between greens and tee boxes. Recommend a buggy if walking uphill or downhill I.S a problem. Greens beautifully cut and maintained with interesting lines.

A good day out, but attitude problems

I really enjoyed my jaunt around the course. I'd not swung a club in a few months so arrived early to use the practise facilities to warm up. They were pretty good and good value for money.
I was able to tee off early because the course was quite quiet. There was rain around and I got a few showers. It was very clear that there had been a lot of rain lately. The fairways were very squelchy in places. I had a few balls embedded on the fairway. As I was playing casually I was able to lift and place, but you'd be pretty peeved if playing in a comp.
The course was challenging with some fun holes. Not too many blind shots which is always nice.
My biggest gripe, was that I was finding myself fixing 3 or 4, sometimes more, pitchmarks on the greens. Some very lazy people out ahead of me. I really don't get the mentality of some people.
All in all a decent challenge and friendly staff and members.

A Pleasant Surprise

Normally £35 for a round on a weekend so to get this for £13 was a real bargain.
A great tight challenge which was played at a leisurely pace with time to enjoy the character of the course.
The club house was very nice too with the staff welcoming and very friendly.
Looking forward to going back again

Lovely course, but always let down by the same issue.

Let me start by saying, that Wells is one of my favourite courses in the area to play.
The layout is excellent and the condition of the course is generally V good. However by far the biggest issue this course suffers from, is the pace of play and the unwillingness of members and non members alike, to abide by etiquette and allow faster groups through, or even when looking for lost balls. I have played this course more than 20 times in the last 6 months (always 2-4 ball) yet only once have I had a round not held up by slow play in front.
Constant apologies from the pro shop are simply not enough and more should be done to address this, as it really does let down what is without doubt, one of the best courses in the area.

A little gem in Somerset

Played at midday. No waiting on any of the tees.
Course (especially greens) in excellent condition considering the time of year.
This is not a boring course - try it.
