Forgiving course with some gently pleasant variations, wide, well defined fairways & hard dry greens. Feels like a course that one can score well on yet…

This course is on the way up and has improved significantly over the last year. More needs to be done, but the greens are now good if slow. The putting green can now be used to practice putting rather than chipping. Grrenstaff are visible and doing a good job. Pricing is too low for the quality of the course.

Needs some TLC

Played here because it is cheap for Seniors.
Course needs some TLC it is in a poorer condition than when I played here last year,
Tee boxes very rough and used, (Yellow Tees), Fairways not up to standard, Bunkers need a lot of work virtually all have grass in them, Greens Very slow but true.

Free round of golf through my golf insurance. Practice facilities, included a couple of practice nets and a putting area that was fairly large, but to putt on was impossible. It was terrible. The course for the time of year was in pretty decent condition. The fairways were ok, could have done with a cut though. The tee-boxes were fine, a couple of mats, but I've played on worse. Bunkers though were pretty poor, no sand really to mention. The saving grace for the course are the greens. They were in really good condition and very good to putt on. For a council owned course, it wasn't too bad. With a little more investment, care and work, it could be a very good course. There's a good mix of holes, with long par-3's and par-4's to test your game. There is a clubhouse, but I couldn't get into it. Keycode on the door. I think it's a members only clubhouse. Payment is in the sports centre reception, no cash payments. I may consider returning in the summer to see how the course plays then. Good value for money, as it didn't cost me anything.

Play this course regularly. Normally in good condition. There had been no rain for several days. Then after a short shower the front 9 holes became a mess. Called mud on the fairways plus loads of leaf litter. Trolley wheels absolutely clogged. 9th hole, a par 3 is downhill to the green. The tee box has been moved several times of the last few years and the old tee boxes fenced off. The current tee box, which appears to be temporary despite having been there for 2 yrs has a 10 degree slope downhill. No attempt has been made to level it off. I feel the course should have been closed due to the general condition but it is a council course so maybe there is no onexto make that decision.

Great value for money

What can I say about Batchwood? It has some very tricky Par 4 holes, is very well kept for a pay and play course with fast greens, the reception staff are very helpful, and it costs about a half the price of playing on a comparable well known course.

Crazy golf

From tee to green the course was in OK condition, but the greens were bare, concrete hard, and several had what appeared to be 'motorbike donuts? all over them. Once you got on the green (anything landed directly on the green would rocket off, no matter how much backspin you put on the ball) it was more like playing crazy golf.

Great improvement

Course condition has improved several levels. New greenkeeping staff are really turning round this great layout. Greens are very playable. Flat and rolling well.

Course now represents excellent value.
