Member Review: Mendip Golf Club
Mendip Golf Club in Somersetrecently reviewed by golfshake.com member John Standing. With a highest point 1000feet above sea level it offers unparralled views of the surrounding coutryside.
"Playing on a beautiful clear sunny day, there cannot be many courses in the UK that can boast more spectacular views than The Mendip Golf Course in Somerset. The highest point is 1000ft above sea level and all the surrounding countryside is laid out before you in breathtaking beauty.
The course was in great condition, with springy fairways and receptive greens. However, unfortunately today the greens had recently been hollow tined and sanded. That said once the early morning moisture had gone, they still ran true and at a reasonable pace. A shame because I have played here before and the greens were very fast, tricky and testing (this is why I have only rated the course V. Good not excellent, for today).
If you ever find yourself looking for a game in Somerset and the sun is shining this course cannot really be bettered in my opinion. If the weather is a bit on the dodgy side though you will quite often find yourself playing in cloud and mist due to the altitude. Speaking to a couple of members after the round, they do go out whatever the conditions, the course only closing when deep snow prevents play!
This is a fantastic golf course and well worth a visit if you get a chance. No tee times are booked, so it is worth ringing to see if any competitions are on beforehand, and to get an idea of the best time to arrive so as to avoid any members groups. Great value too, we paid Â£20 each and after arriving at the suggested time of 0830 had a free run at the whole course with only a four ball behind for company."
