Nice course - if a little short. Good condition. Very nice, fast greens, tricky to get close in dry sunny weather. Recommended to friends and will be back, great value for an afternoon game at the weekend.

v good condition for the time of year. Greens a bit soft but will improve with the weather. Some interesting holes, not just back and forth across a field.

I have played downshire on many occasions but this is first time this year and have never known th
e course to be in such a poor condition greens and fairways need a lot of work its a shame to see a course go down so much.

David rated 3 out of 5 - Aug 17 2015
Tee boxes were not in great condition and quite a few of them were very undulated which made it hard to get a good stance. Some Fairways quite dry and in need of watering. Greens looked after well but had recently aerated so were fairly bumpy. Nice course to play very forgiving.\\(Round played: Aug 2015 - Score: 95 Handicap: 28)

The course is in very good condition. There are plenty of dog legs and in my opinion, one must take care not to overuse driver. The green fees are not bad. The management is paying attention on maintaining standards e.g. on dress code etc.

Ron rated 2 out of 5 - Jun 15 2015
Used to play this course a lot in the 90's. It was a top course then but it has declined significantly in recent years. Greens are covered in old pitch marks and generally a bit scruffy as are most of teeing areas. Around the greens is also in need of more green keeper attention. Variety of holes is still in tact and appealing but course is overplayed and tired. For 28£ you can visit a variety of private clubs instead.
