Fair but challenging

Blacknest is a really good course. We play as a group of high handicappers and the fairways off the tee give you every chance. There is water in play on several holes but in the majority of instances, you can play around any obstacles. Staff very customer friendly and environment welcoming.

Monday Evening Fun

Took the opportunity to play 9 holes on a lovely evening. The reception in the pro shop was super friendly. The course dry but in good condition and we had a fun evening - particularly being a little rusty!

Would NOT recommend

Played on the 13th sep. greens were in terrible condition, almost felt unmaintained and the course layout was really odd and felt a bit micky mousey. Not good value for money and really annoyed we weren’t made aware of the state of the course and offered a discount. I personally would not play again or recommend

Enjoyable round.

I’ve played this course several times before as a golfer who hasn’t played in a number of years and am finding my feet again. This could is forgiving with a good few challenges and some really nice holes. Generally, the course is well kept but there are a few areas under repair and a few tee boxes are showing signs of a busy summer but nothing that would put me off returning as the fairways are in a good condition and play very nicely. An enjoyable round.

Poor condition even for the money

Have played a few times over the last 4-6 months with friends who are just getting into golf as it is one of the cheaper courses locally. However, even £15 for 9 holes on a twilight tee time feels difficult to justify with the state of the greens and tee boxes... Found myself assuring my friends that “most courses are in much better condition”.

Nice enough staff and has some pretty holes which I do enjoy, it really is a shame!

Very disappointed

Played Blacknest a week ago having booked 4 tee times for 16 players. The greens were dreadful. At least 5 of them had GUR patches and 1 green had the a GUR patch all the way through... so you couldn’t drop in a logical place. Worst of all, none of this was mentioned to me when booking and no discount rate was offered. In fact on the day, the pro said the greens had been worked on recently and we’re now fine. A compete lie. Every course I have played in the past would admit to the condition of the course and offer a discount, especially to a group. Seems they wanted money more than good reputation or repeat custom.

Disappointing

Played yesterday evening (20 August) and was was surprised by how bad the greens and tees were. The weather was beautiful, and I know it rained a lot the day before, but of the 14 holes we managed to play, the majority had areas on either tees or greens which were bare of grass and had GUR areas marked on them. The tees generally are exceptionally uneven making it hard to find a good place to tee from. This is a shame as there had been a lot of work done on the course and it had really improved. It is also frustrating that this type of information is not openly given out when booking, with maybe discounts given due to the poor condition. It is like buying a nice product only to find you have a b-grade/ex-demo item rather than a new one.

Blacknest

Nice course, a lot of holes are very challenging , good set up and well spaced out between Tee off times.
Greens could have been better as very patchy and looks like some other golfers don't repair pitch markes but that's not the course fault. All in all a very good course to play and will go back again

The course itself is very nice, good variety of holes. However, the greens particularly are not in good condition, which made putting difficult. I would play there again if greens were better. The staff were friendly and the food was excellent.

Although the course has a good mixture of holes that makes you use all the clubs in your bag it was let down by the condition of the tee boxes and greens. A lot of the greens have large dead spots. At ?32 to play On Saturday I think this is over prised for the condition.

Well Thought out course

This is one of those courses that no one seems to have heard of. After playing it, it is hard to believe. It is a great little course tucked away in Alton. Well maintained, loads of hazards and fairly tight fairways. This course seems easy, but you can easily drop a lot shots if you do not play this strategically. For the money, I will definitely return.
