What the club says: The Burstead Golf Club was designed by the late Patrick Tallack in September 1991. It was laid to seed in the spring of '92 and opened for play in July 1993. Although relatively new, the course already shows maturity beyond its years, with the greens in particular establishing an excellent reputation.

Much improved track

Played Burstead recently and saw a huge improvement in the course layout and the quality of the fairways and greens. Really enjoyed the course and the friendliness of the staff throughout made it a most enjoyable golf club to play.

Nice set up

Ever improving club, lot of work on the 9th & 18th holes to make it more interesting and challenging. A really nice, friendly club with all the facilities, ie practice hole, driving range, nets and putting green. Deals to be had on the green fees. Some of the tee areas could do with a tidy up but otherwise a super little club.

Quite short but a lot tighter than it looks at the start.

Fantastic course

Course in wonderful condition and the addition of the two lakes either side of the 9th and 18th greens now make these both challenging par 5s. Always a pleasure to play here at any time of the year

First time here

Really nice course, better than most locally. Not a big hitters track, lots of positional play with long irons, the greens for me are the standout, lovely condition were not patchy and ran true, really thinking of joining this club once I improve.Well done The Burstead..

Great course

The whole course from tee boxes to greens were in excellent condition, the course was extremely demanding for mid to high handicaps but very enjoyable, the clubhouse and pro shop had everything we needed, staff are very friendly inc all the greenkeepers we meet as we went round, look forward to coming back

Always a pleasurable day at the Burstead

We always enjoy our annual round of golf at the Burstead. The course is in great condition and the improvements they've recently made and are still working on at the 9th are great - making a demanding course even more challenging. We are always well looked after. The breakfasts are great and the after round dinner was superb. Highly recommended if you haven't yet played this course.

Course condition ok, membership rude

Members / other players really rude.
Wont be going back I wont be insulted again.
Lots of course was being redeveloped and reseeded but didn't mention. They obviously didn't bother to do it in the closed season so now they are neutralising some holes and the eighteenth isn't really a golf hole its a building site

Little Gem of a course

Played a society round here, have to say I wish I had payed it before as it?s only a 10 min drive away, they were doing a bit of work on her course which restricted the 9th and 18th to par 4 length but that aside it was a lovely set up that had bunker protected green decent tee box?s and ditches that were in just the right places

Not great condition

I do normally like this club, good location, reasonable green fees, friendly but the fairways were really poor. Grass needed a cut and very worn in parts. Must be a problem with drainage. Tee area and greens were fine. Disappointed
