What the club says: The Valley Course (9 Hole par 27)
This 9 Hole par 3 course is without question one of the best designed and maintained in the country. Lakes, bunkers, streams and mature trees provide an interesting and fun layout. It is a great place to start to learn the game, but also a challenge to the experienced golfer.
The Weald Course (9 hole par 35)
Top professionals play here because it's so good - so do us lesser golfers as well.
A great course with some great holes. You'll want to play it again and again - always the sign of a good course. There is a good balance of holes, some long, some short, but testing all parts of your game and making you think.

I was left extremely dissapointed by the service I received recently however. I was looking to play the Par 3 with my partner who was just due to walk the course with me. I was advised that "due to insurance" I would not be able to play alone and have a guest join me without paying. I felt this was a little harsh but accepted this and offered to pay for 2 even though the other person was not actually playing. It turn out his wasn't acceptable now. I was told she could play and they will rent clothing and clubs. I made it clear that she isn't playing but just joining me on the Par 3 course and that by paying for 2 people surely I had covered the insurance issue. I said that if it was important that she plays then she could use my clubs anyway. They said this would slow everyone down. Correct but she had no intention in playing and if she did she would definitely slow the play down!
It was abundantly clear to me that this was about money. The insurance issue was resolved when I reluctantly offered to pay for both. They wanted the extra for the renting of clubs/clothes. This is very dissapointing as I have used the place a number of times and expected a bit more of a reasonable discussion and found the staff to be overly pedantic here. "We don't make the rules, we implement them". Computer says no mentality. Needless to say I won't be returning and I'll be suggesting to my local friends and family not to go to Hobbs Cross.
As a final point, how many people does it take to work a till? 2 men at Hobbs Cross.

(Round played: Apr 2016 - Score: 113 Handicap: 24.7) Really enjoy playing at Hobbs X . A great practice ground . Fairways and greens are in good shape for this time of the year .
Good greens on this course. Course is nice and open, great for beginners, watch the 5th hole, par 5... can be tricky.

Always enjoy playing Hobbs, the course if very open but its usually windy so can add to the challenge a bit. can get a bit busy with beginner golfers but just slow down and enjoy the soft fairways and decent greens all year round. Good value for money and friendly staff.
Great 9 hole course. best in the area.
