Golf at wensum

I have played this course several times and had no problems.i played the course sun 20thmay tee time 13-56 when we arrived on the tee there were 12 or more women waiting to tee off to our dismay one group played in an 8 ball we found out that all the women were playing in a practice game to decide their team to play in a cup competition we .were held up all the way round. I have no problem with practising but why didn't they close the tee say for an hour and half this would have stopped the delay.when I complained at the pro shop there seemed to be no sympathy with our complaint.lit really spoilt our day.

Perfect weather

A course of two halves

A great course really well managed and stunning views across the Wensum valley. A course of two halves the out nine holes are reasonably difficult with a mixture of tree lined holes, well placed bunkers. The back nine being almost a different course with water everywhere except the last two! Found the experience difficult in places as a beginner but will defo be playing again. Shot a round of 98 less my handicap which is much needed finished with 70.

Gem of a course

Two mates and myself played The Wensum course for the first time on Saturday afternoon and were totally surprised by a great little golf course that has everything.

Great lay out, great condition, great natural views over the Wensum Valley & on the second nine lots of testing water hazards..

Pace was good, toilets & seating dotted about the course( why don't more courses do this) and very friendly staff in the bar with reasonably priced food too.

The three of us had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.

Playing The Valley course next week....

Great golf course

Played the Wensum, really impressed especially with the holes around the river, challenging but rewarding.

Bar area was a real let down though, urgently in need of an upgrade. Many areas were dirty and language from a group of customers was awful.

Great for beginner

I only took up golf last year and play about once a month if I can at different courses. Hadn't played here before so thought I would try with a friend. Really enjoyed the course, interesting holes with lovely elevated tee on a couple of holes. Could do with a couple of signs to make it a little clearer where to go for next hole but we managed OK, would definitely play there again.

Excellent Course - Well worth a visit

Played on the early Bank Holiday in May. Staff were very polite and super prompt in getting us onto the first tee. Fairways in great condition, the greens were super slick but some very covered in varying length grass - but really minimal. The middle section of the course has stunning scenery around the water hazards.

Overall, a great days golf - highly recommended.

Reasonable course at an excellent price so VERY good value for money. Not as scary as some reviews may suggest but four holes are VERY tricky. If you get through them without loosing a ball or two you have done very well. The rest of the course is challenging but not daunting. At the price highly recommended.
