Most Helpful Review

I've played Carholme a few times over the last 3 years or so and it's always been average at best. Recently went again and the course is in fantastic condition. Teeboxes and fairways are in very good condition and the greens run very true, albeit slightly slower than you might expect. Relatively short course with all but 2 par 4's under 400yards, however, don't underestimate this course. Every fairway is lined with trees and/or unplayable rough/OOB so being accurate from the tee is vital. My only complaint would be the condition of the bunkers, they are a little bit on the stoney side. All in all you can't complain when they're only charging £12/round after 2pm. If you're in the area it's worth a visit. - Jun 27 2013

The golf course was in very good condition considering we had experienced heavy down pours the day before. The greens rolled very well and true. Although not the longest its still not an easy course and you need to manage your way round well.

Nice course, not very long. There was too much sand in the bunkers for my liking as you sunk when stood in them. The fairways needed cutting as you couldn't tell where the fairway ended and the rough started, The greens where in good condition. I would play again but not till the summer. I paid ?10 for a twilight tee time which seemed fair.
