Great course well worth playing..

Super course quirky in places in great condition. Second cut is good but make sure you stay out of the rough as it is deep. Greens are very good and should be fantastic once the grass stops seeding.

Looks fabulous this summer!

Always enjoy a round at The Abbey especially this time of year. The greenkeepers have let some of the rough grow up around the top fringe of some of the bunkers and between a couple of the adjacent holes on the back nine so wild flowers look really pretty. The course is in great condition after the recent wet spell and warm weather - testament to that is the amount of visiting golf societies. Met a bunch of golfers recently who travelled up from Swansea. Just think of the top golf courses on that south wales coast that they have on their door step and they choose to travel to Redditch for a 2 day stay over - says it all if you ask me!

Well done the Abbey greenkeepers! Craig, Andy, Sid and Matt!

The option of the 2 bars is a great move and the BBQ by the practice putting green (I recommend the Cajun chicken burger!)

I've played The Abbey many times. I shot an 85 with 8 pars today and still look back on the scorecard where the course bit me hard. It's never a push over!

Love this course

Never get bored playing The Abbey, every hole is so different, and no easy holes....there is something to catch you out on every hole. Take the par 5's all needs some precision driving so you have a good 2nd shot and not blocked out by a huge oak tree.
Course is in really nice condition. Greenkeepers are grrowing the grass around the fairway bunkers which is making i look really nice - but a b**tch if you end up in it instead of the and (bit like some of the courses in Lincolnshire like Forest Pines and Woodhal Spa but not as deep thank goodness!)

It's been really busy with golf breaks over September which says it all. Even bumped into some visitors from Royl Porthcawl who enjoyed it. Says it all.

An amazing Local Course.

This really is an amazing Course that sits almost in the middle of a housing Scheme. Easy enough to find if you use a Sat Nav. Once you enter the Car park and see the Course it really does look amazing. Not a bad walk if you sometimes struggle as only a couple of holes where you have an uphill walk. Some fantastic holes and they have just completed 3 new holes which are superb. Give it a try and you will NOT be disappointed.

Just renewed membership for 7th year

It is a great course, and not resting on any laurels.

Quite a bit of work has been done so some new fairway bunkers have gone in (currently GUR) and a few closed up. All the greens have been worked on and already much improved over the last 3 weeks but still a way to go until they are 'summer ready'. But just playing early April and seeing how manicured the fairways are looking off the tee I think this course is going to be incredible over the summer.

Although a member for 6 years already and I still play 30+ other courses over the course of a year I always look forward to returning to my home course.

The club house (Tawny Bar) has been extended and is much bigger and better. Just beware you could be having a post match pint with a bunch of girls just wearing robes having let the spa for a drink/lunch........... :-)

Great course, despite weird front nine configuration

Great course, almost every hole has something that could hurt your score. Front nine configuration is weird though because the 8th hole seems like it should be the 9th as it plays back up to the hotel. So it plays like a front 8 and back 10! That doesn't, however, detract from the quality of the course.

In great nick!

As a member i play plenty at The Abbey and the course is great condition.
Guests paying £12.50 is a cracking winter deal!

Though I played 8 shots over my handicap today it is a great knock!

Course is playing nice

Great challenging course. You must be precise with so many tee shots so as not to get blocked out for your second.
Not a weak hole anyway - they can all wreck any card!
The funny thing to me is the 3 par 3's are all stroke index 16-18, but all have so much water surrounding them - all potential card wreckers - beware!
Greens are in great condition. Well done to Craig Tidmarsh and his greenkeeping staff for a tip top job this year.
Never spoken to anyone who has not enjoyed the Abbey...I've been playing solidly as a member for 7 years!
Today I had a shocker +10 over handicap - so this course can bite!

PS Best driving range by miles for miles around!

A course to test your skills

Course was in great condition for the time of year. Greens were smooth and running true. Not a course that you can take out the big dog on every hole, playing for position off the tee is essential to make a good score.

Cracking test of golf

Golfshake Team ReviewNever been disappointed playing The Abbey...it is a great test of golf. One guy i spoke to today is a member at Stratford Oaks and was v excited about winning a comp to play a 4 ball at The Abbey today. no 2 holes are the same - no boring up and down fairways at the Abbey. There are only 2 holes where if you miss the fairway you are on another fairway to play from (12 & 13) and (11&16) everywhere else you are in deep trouble for missing the fairway (like Jordan Spieth's wild tee shot on the 13th on last day of the Open!). Be straight or beware!
Final testament - the player behind me this evening was only one of the greenkeepers / groundsmen! Talk about taking your own medicine!?

Golfshake Team ReviewPlayed on Thursday 20th just ahead of a bunch of guys who'd driven all the way up from Plymouth who were making the stop off before a weekend at The Belfry! Good choice guys as the course is in great shape looking its best i have seen in 5 years. Nice to be back on the summer tees and the new look tees on 3 and 8 look good!! OK I'm in an extra good mood as I managed my best round in last couple of years yesterday as I got to try my new driver out. Used the head Pro at the Abbey to get measured up for an M2 (10.5, stiff 56 gram Fukujura shaft set 1 degree lower) and what a difference it made - getting much better flight and an extra 25+ yards and hitting most fairways now. Yee haah! Best golfing investment I have ever made . Even let my other fellow golfers today use it - and it did not work for them! So it is all about custom fitting....and it was cheaper than AG!! Just one regret - wish I had done it years ago!!
