Hadn't played here in some time. Course in ok condition but very wet in places which I suspected might be the case from previous experience. Bunkers out of play for same reason. Still a generally enjoyable round save for losing a couple of balls that plugged. Decent value at £32 on a Saturday afternoon. Will likely revisit when dryer next summer.

Played today for the first time at Blacknest and was pleasantly surprised. The course was in excellent condition, particularly the greens which were pretty fast! Not the most challenging of courses but I still managed to lose some balls! I’ll definitely come back.

Hi Derek,

Thank you for your review, glad you enjoyed your day with us here at Blacknest.
The course has been in great shape this year and feedback has been excellent.
However, some tees do need attention, we have a winter project in place to improve quite a few of them, ready for next season.

Played as a reciprocal to our home club, very enjoyable round, teamed up with a single player, club member (Ollie), gave us a few pointers to look out for which made it a pleasure to play, (and he bought the beers,) thanks Ollie, will return the favour when you play our course.
Greens were firm and predictable, fairways firm a bit dry due the present drought.
Will definitely come again.

Reviewed Apr 13 2022

Played the course twice over the past 10 days, fairways are firm however the greens are a little sandy and I am sure they will improve over the next couple of weeks, the course is a Spring / Summer course not an Autumn / Winter course as it has no drainage. I think it's a lovely course and will defiantly be playing again during the coming months.

Some of the comments are a bit harsh. Yes it can get a bit soggy underfoot,but its "winter golf,"
and many courses are like this. I still think its a really nice course and we enjoyed our round.

Heavy going

There is much to recommend at Blacknest. The staff are friendly, green fees are modest and clubhouse facilities are good. However (at this time of year, at least) the course is very heavy going. The greens are quite patchy and the fairways muddy. A bit of a struggle all round in the winter to be frank. Some of the holes are oddly positioned too, with crossovers and switchbacks in certain areas. It doesn’t always flow from hole to hole. Keep the course map handy. Perhaps one to save for the summer months.

Very welcoming and friendly. Facilities very good. Course seems to have no drainage and is fairly featureless apart from some water.
Just the one visit for me. All the Best and good luck sorting out some drainage. It's like playing in a rice field!

Lovely day, damp course

I had a lovely day out but this course really needs to sort out drainage. It is so muddy and the course is so damp it’s off putting. It’s a tricky course but enjoyable if this could be rectified. Shame really as the facilities are great.

Enjoyable Round

First time playing this course. I was impressed with the facilities at the Club and the course design is interesting and challenging. The Pay & Play green fees are very reasonable. Unfortunately the weather was poor (course was damp) which meant the greens were a bit bumpy but still reasonable.
I’d definitely play again
