Superb condition.

Despite the amount of rain we've had recently, the course was in superb condition.nvery lively greens running true and nice fairways.
Only gripe was ?5 to hire a trolley as they want winter wheels on trollies.
Doesn't make slightest bit of difference. Just another money making tactic.

Great course

Great value for money! ?23 for 18 holes on a great course. Challenging holes with well drained greens that are fast even at the end of October. Will definitely be making a return trip.

Course in better condition than I expected...... apart from the bunker

I had not played the golf course for many years due to the fact it is normally overcrowded and takes forever to get round. I was pleasantly surprised with the condition of the tee boxes, fairways and greens the only part I didn?t like were the bunkers, in my opinion is they were dreadful with very thick, inconsistent sand and lots of stones (which were not small)

A good course but too busy!

Played here for the first time in quite a while. Previous rounds were spoilt by too many groups and unfortunately it was the same yesterday. On the first 9 holes at times there were 3/4 groups on every hole. The back 9 opened up and bit and the pace improved but it appears an ongoing issue. Packing you on! It's a shame as the course itself is good.

Course is in good condition, just a shame a number of the bunkers were infested with wasps - they need urgent treatment before someone gets in trouble. Not nice.

Much improved since my last visit. Played the upper and bunkers and greens are a lot better. Unfortunately they had been sanded and needed a cut but they ran ok. Tee boxes still not great but ok

Greens and bunkers :(

Greens have been tined therefore very unpredictable - usually reliable quick greens at Birchwood but these were not great. Due to heavy rain there is hardly any soft sand in the bunkers - even good bunker players are likely to drop shots if they land in one.

I play here frequently and the course is usually in lovely condition but the greens were terrible this time - recently scarified and sand-filled, so it was like putting along (or across) corduroy! I realise it's standard maintenance, but you don't expect it on a Saturday in August, and it made the greens unplayable. Would have been a nice touch to have had a warning about it in the pro shop beforehand.
Also, bunkers were very poor - many very short on sand.
Rest of the course in good condition.

A great golfing experiece

I have played Birchwood Park many times before but I thought it deserved a few words this time. The course is in outstanding condition with good fairways, playable semi rough and the course punishes for wayward shots. Bunkers are generally in excellent condition and each hole provides a good test of golf which rewards the straight hitting golfer. The greens are in superb condition, well manicured, challenging and provide an excellent test although you need to be in good position or a 3 putt is on the cards. My last two rounds have been Twilights so 3 hour rounds for two of us with no slow play. A must play if you haven't before and a course I will keep going back to as it gets better and better as the landscape matures.
