What the club says: Working with the natural beauty of majestic rolling parkland, with a wealth of mature trees and lakes, Thomas' brief was to create a course to be enjoyed by all who wished to play. With a range of tees on every hole, the higher handicapped golfer is not overwhelmed by too difficult a course, yet from the back tees in events which include the European Challenge Tour Championships, even the greatest from the professional ranks find this stunning course a challenging test of their skills.
(Round played: Mar 2013 - Score: 102 Handicap: 26)
(Round played: Sep 2012 - Score: 105 Handicap: 14.5)
Greens improving rapidly. Lots of unrepaired pitch marks on greens. Lack of rakes in bunkers. Apart from that...........Tops
(Round played: Jul 2012 - Score: 98 Handicap: 21.9)
Very much American in design with the front of the greens being protected by bunkers and therefore requiring to fly the ball all the way to the putting surface.
We paid £115 for a 36 hole stay and would have paid a lot more.
I would rate this as a superior version to Hanbur Manor and St. Pierre.
However played this course on Friday and it was back towards its best. The fairways and greens have improved massively and it is now back as one of the best courses in the County of Wiltshire.
The best ?? That's easy..............Castle Coombe. Its a must.
