What the club says: The meadowland course at Hobson Golf Club tests all aspects of your game and requires a full range of shots from the golfer. Whilst measuring a large 6403 yards from the tee on the first to the pin on the last and lying higher above sea level than other courses in the area, it is quite a flat course and therefore quite forgiving on the legs.

Wet grey day, hard to score in such difficult conditions but the course held up well to the weather especially the greens which have got much better over the past 12 months.

This course offers incredible value golf. I have played all over the North East and come across supposed "Top 100" courses whose greens are a pale shadow of what I was surprised but delighted to find at the Hobson.
It's a testing lay-out, which challenges you strategically (if you think "driver" on every par 4 and par 5, you'll trip up here) while not being too penal.
I was also surprised by how up and down it is - you get no sense of its contours from the main road running alongside a couple of the holes..it's genuinely scenic at times.
Throw in an ultra-friendly reception in pro shop, clubhouse and bar, and it's impossible to fault at barely a tenner a round.

Very challenging course for a par 70. Bunkers in good places and tough par 3's with raised greens surrounded by sand and water. Some par 4's with ditches that are drivable so need to pick your clubs correctly. If you hit straight you can go for a competitive score but if you go right or left you can be in serious trouble.

Nice course with a decent mixture of challenges. The clubhouse has seen better days and could do with a makeover, but overall a nice friendly course that I would play again.

Good parkland course, well maintained. Nice mixture of holes with semi rough to give you a challenge if you stray off the fairways.

Played on a Sunday afternoon for a tenner. Well worth it. A lot of fairways quite open, good for a beginner. A good course all round and excellent value for £10.
