Forrest course review (not manor)

The Forrest course is the worst course I have ever played. Hands down. The few horses you see running around do not make up for how dreadful this course really is. The fairways are essentially akin to what you would see if you walked onto a nature reserve or farmland. There are no defining features that would tell you if you are in a fairway or In the rough. If you have ever played paultons academy course (the par 3 course that is designed for children and those new to hold before they play the proper course), this gives you a rough idea of what to expect, although I would say the Forrest conditions are probably worse. The "fairways" have no discerning features from the rough making it hard to spot your ball. The images on their website are entirely misleading. The biggest challenge is trying to work out which of the three flags you see in the distance belong to the hole you are on.There are zero bunkers. The greens are just so so. I would have said it was ok if it was 10 to15 pounds for a round. However for 30 quid, you could play in much nicer courses (almost any other course in Hampshire). We left afterwards feeling as though we had been hustled out of our money
Unfortunately we were convinced to play this course over the telephone instead of the manor course. As a result of our parties experience, we have no intention of going back to experience their other course, even though i hear it is nice. Their club house looks excellent too. Furthermore when we arrived 20m early at the golf club, we weren't given any directions to the Forrest course which is a mile down the road. We ended up 20m late for our tee time because we drove down the wrong road and the New Forrest is a blackspot for GPS and phone signal, meaning we couldn't contact the course. In all honesty the most note worthy part of the round was walking past a horse scratching is balls on a tree.
Do yourself a favour, book the other course at Bramshaw or go somewhere else completely.

What a load of rubbish! How on earth can they charge a tee fee of £25 to play the Forest course.
The so called fairways were covered in cow dung, the greens were fenced off with horse hoof prints
over the greens.

Forest course. Worst I have ever played, any cost would be too much. Every green surrounded by fences and when we played 6 greens had water pipes running on the top of the greens and water running over them making them unplayable. When we complained we were told the manager was unaware the greens were being worked on! But no offer of an alternative golf on the "other course" . Do not play this course find somewhere else.

Grows on you!

Initially I didn't think it was very good, cows and horses everywhere ! Including cow pats ???? as we went around it grew on me with some very quirky holes. Most greens had some sort of obstacle whether it was a ditch, water or bunker. Not a purest course but would like to play the Manor as that looked like a proper course

I played the forest course today and it was a pretty unique experience with some very nice holes but its not worth the £40 green fee. (25-£30 more suitable IMO)

Not bad in tough conditions

Wet in places but good in general for time of year. Great course, green keepers have worked hard to have course in condition it is.

We played the Manor Course on a Sunday in January as a society. Our bacon rolls were pre-cooked sometime before being served and were cold and tough. The club says it treats guests as members for the day but be aware that the bar is not operated by the club and the members get a 12.5% discount which we felt was reflected in the prices charged to guests.\\The Manor Course is very pleasing on the eye and was in good condition for the time of year. There were no temporary greens but there were some bunkers and other areas under repair and trolleys were allowed.\\We we\'re playing as four balls and let a three ball behind us play through but then found they were followed by a number of four balls playing a club competition. I transpired that this was a better ball with men playing off the ladies tees. Clearly, they were faster than us playing effectively as a two ball! We let a group through and were chased around by the group following. Not sure why the club failed to tell us prior to booking or teeing off?\\When asked they stated that they took our booking well in advance as the members tend to stay away in January but this year the weather was warmer! The competition was a roll up on the day so they had no idea who would participate in advance!\\We are always happy to let faster groups play through but you can\'t stand aside every hole and let groups through, the club should book tees accordingly and keep everyone informed as to what is going on on the day.\\The club told us they have over 1000 members and there are signs advertising for more starting from £350 per year! \\We felt the club are taking the cash from both members and guests with little regard to how that might work for tee times!\\I have read a lot of good reviews for Bramshaw and I am sure they were a true reflection at the time.\\The Manor course is a good test and well worth playing but I recommend a checking how the tee times are being organised on the day.

Forest favourite

We thoroughly enjoyed our three ball on The Forest course. Signage is minimalist so be sure to take a map from the pro shop so you know where you are going. Also be prepared to play over or around the cattle that roam the course. The wide fairways are quite forgiving and usually leave you a shot even after an errant drive. Some of the greens, particularly those near to the brook that runs through the course, are very attractive. Quirky but nice.

Forest Course

First thing to say is if you're playing the Forest course, don't take you clubs out of the car when you get to the Bramshaw clubhouse/pro shop. The Forest course is actually about half a mile away, and when you get there there's nothing there apart from the 1st tee and a car park.

I say this not having played the Manor course yet, but the Forest course does clearly appear to be the lesser of the two courses. We were told that the club are only allowed to do work to the greens and the tees, so the fairways are left to nature and the numerous cows and horses that wander around. Hoof marks are everywhere, along with other substances best found on rose beds. The greens and tees are very decent though.

I think I only saw two or three 150 yard markers out on the course, so be prepared for a few waits while golfers shuffle clubs until they pick one that might be right. If you were playing behind me today then I apologise for doing that!

The fairways are wide. Very wide! I think the first hole that really feels anything close to tight is the 9th, and after that it opens up again. I only saw a few holes that had any bunkers on, and most of the course's protection comes from streams in front or behind the greens, and a number of raised greens that make sure only accurate approach shots remain on the putting surface.

There are some lovely holes on the course and its certainly worth giving a go, but I imagine that it's probably suited best to mid to high handicappers.

The welcome in the (well stocked) pro shop was everything you'd hope for, and as for the clubhouse, it's just really lovely. There's a wonderful balcony for sitting out and watching the world go by. Or the Bramshaw GC bit of the world anyway.
