What the club says: Branston has a full range of golf facilities with:
* 18-hole, par 72 picturesque golf course situated in Burton, Staffordshire, alongside the River Trent with excellent views over the river and into South Derbyshire. Challenging and yet very enjoyable with water featuring on 16 of the 18 holes.
* 9-hole, par 30 parkland academy course with four sets of tees on each hole. Ideal for all standards of golfer, especially those wishing to practice their short game and approach shots. Greens kept to same excellent standard as the 18-hole course
* Floodlit 22 bay driving range

Frosty on some green made the ball shoot a bit but fairways in great condition
Not my best effort today got beat by 6 shots but was not very focused and my playing partner had a blinder too
Â£10 a tad steep but for the quality of course its not to bad

Played here quite a bit as an alternative to our local club for a change, we go hoping the club and course live up to expectations but always leave feeling it does not match its own promotion and promises.
Some holes are very good and some have the feel of an idea that was not finished.
The course itself also some scruffy areas and although the booking/reception sounded helpful and said the correct things in reality the opposite was true.
Found the spikes bar to be a bit dissapointing and had the feeling from the members there that we were shouldn't be in their domain and they were a bit loud and vulgar, however once we went outside onto the patio it was a nice view with decent food. Seems no one is allowed to disturb or sit to close when the gambling school is playing!
The club house is very nice with great facilities but members not very welcoming to visitors (this is based on a number of rounds over a few years)
The course is also prone to flooding and has been not playable for weeks/months at a time
Also saw some behaviour off members that left a bad impression and gave the impression that certain members could behave in an unpleasant and derogatory manner.
Overall a club/course with potential to be something better than it is, but let down by a percentage of members and some holes that could have been designed better (the course was redesigned in 2000 so some questions should be asked about the design then).
Would recommend as place to place as long as you don't pay the full price (not worth it) and you don't play when it is a busy members time, although it is ideal for a group or society.
