This is a super course

First played the day before Boris locked us down in 2020. It was very very wet and the course was shortened a lot but I could see it was worth a revisit. So delighted we did return in August when it was dry. The wind blew a hooley but that added to the fun.

I visit a lot of courses and tend to judge them on whether it has unique holes that you'll remember and talk about post round. The Codrington has a handful!

Water plays a really big part of the topography at the Players with many water hazards framed by the US style wooden edges (think Sawgrass). They look amazing!

My favourites are the hugely difficult par 4 third (LOVE this hole) which is SI 3 - teeing off to
narrow fairway and water to the left...amazed it isn't SI 1!; the par 5 fifth with an amazing grass heather lined bunker 50 yards short of the green; the par 3 10th; the par 5 12th has a fabulous green. But the highlight of the course is the par 5 15th and par 3 16th. This is just majestic. I challenge you not to reach for your camera phone. These are 2 of the best holes in England.

I'll be bringing our golf society here soon and the fact there are around 10 brand new accommodation rooms now built I'll be organising a lads weekend here especially as Batch/Bristol are not too far.

I'll be back soon.

90 mins from the midlands, just 5 mins off Jn18 of the M4 (near Bath)

Played 2 rounds (4 ball) over two days. Day one was very busy and took 5 hours to play off the yellows. The following day the course was empty and the same 4 ball took 3 hours 50 minutes.
Positives; course in superb condition, staff and members very friendly.
Negatives; signage appalling, especially when trying to find the next tee. Also no benches which are needed if you have to wait on every tee! ( I am assuming they have not been removed for Covid reasons).

One of the best!

Have played over 80 courses in England, and this is right up there with the best, despite the recent bad weather the course was in fantastic condition, a beautiful sunny day showed the course in it,s full glory, greens, fairways , tee boxes immaculate, great variety of holes with lots of ponds and lakes, A very pretty course and you stand on some of the tees and think wow! Not the cheapest to play but well worth it, and worth every penny.

Overall a good golf club with good facilities and a friendly, warm welcoming staff. Thought the price for 18 on the Coddington was a tad high in comparison to some other courses i have played

It’s a nice course but compared to the other course at this venue it’s really not that great and also with no stroke savers

Very good challenging course. It’s long and the water makes most holes challenging. Superb condition and friendly staff.

Great course and really friendly staff. I played horribly but the course was in great condition a really tough course when your driver isn't working. Some greens could do with some manicuring but they were true and quick.

One of the best I've played

The Players was such a good course - great condition, long, challenging with some beautiful looking holes. The greens for any amateur golfer where challenging yet enjoyable.
Plus the staff and members where very friendly and welcoming.
