Staff very helpful, having had to postpone due to bad weather, they re-booked us for the following week with no issue. Despite not being able to see the first two greens due to fog, the course was in great condition. My only criticism would be the tee boxes were a little shabby. The greens were slick with some tricky pin positions. Having never played there before, I found there was a little confusion as to where the next tee was and a bit of crossing over other fairways and going back on ourselves. The guys I was playing with did question the stroke indexes on a number of holes. I didn't have an issue with this but on about 2 or 3 holes the ladies tees were at least 90 yards ahead which I felt was unnecessary
The club house facilities were fabulous. We didn't eat but the food smelt lovely. The changing room area was immaculate. Will definitely be playing there again. Great value for money.

Blacknest Golf and Country Club, worth a visit

Not too long a course, with some very picturesque holes. The type of course that tests you to use every club in the bag. Plenty of water scattered around and plenty of soft sand in the bunkers. At this time of year, after the baking hot sunshine, the fairways are looking a bit dry and sorry for themselves, but that will no doubt improve with a fair amount of rain. The real test on the course are the greens. Lots of small greens and a lot of undulations on them as well. Very nice clubhouse and pleasant staff. My only criticism of Blacknest is that the tees are pretty awful and could do with a fair amount of work to them. All in all a very nice course and would recommend a visit.

Always enjoy playing here. In reasonable condition though tee boxes could do with a bit of work. Greens were ok despite not looking the best and took some spin etc. Very good value and nice bar and clubhouse.

Lovely Parkland Course

Although the course is fairly short, 5478 yards from the yellows, it is far trickier than you might first think. The frequently tree lined fairways aren't the widest, but there's a good mix of holes, and quite a few of them where there are opportunities to drop shots. Water, ditches and bunkers play a part on most holes.

The greens aren't huge, but they were in a very decent condition, and with the recent hot/dry weather it made finding them a little awkward.

The clubhouse is on the smaller side, but it is very friendly and the food was good, and the welcome there and in the proshop was very pleasant.

I certainly intend going back again soon!

Mudbath - AVOID

Regrettably played this course on Saturday 27th January 2018 – we walked in after 11 holes due to it being a mud bath. There was no difference between the length of the grass on the fairways and the rough and there was what appeared to be a rabbit scrape in the middle of one of the greens. There was slippery mud everywhere, pools of water which were impossible to avoid. THIS COURSE SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN OPEN (if only to protect the course).

We spoke to someone working in the professional shop once we had changed out of our dirty clothing and his response was “you are entitled to your opinion” – not exactly decent customer service.

We spoke to a local in the car park afterwards and he said that the course is well known in the area for being in this condition and “unplayable” for at least 3 months of the year.

PLAY IT AT YOUR PERIL.

nice course

a nice course a bit damp in areas but we had rain the night before the greens were in very nice shape and ran quite fast but a great course with a few water hazards that get in way if you can hit it nice and straight its a course that you can make a nice score

Played on the Open Fairways Card - ?14 a round, had an offer on for ?15 a round. Breakfast taken in the clubhouse beforehand, excellent. Some of the fairways were very wet considering that we haven't had a lot of rain so we have labelled this a "summer course". Greens however were in good condition and the green keepers were busy cutting & mowing the grass during the round. Well worth a visit.
