Mud Mud glorious Mud

Absolutely disgraceful.These courses should not be open,we played roman road course first 20/3/20 and all it was was mud with trolley trails everywhere.
Montgomerie course slightly better21/3/20 but still needs closing.We we’re due to play the twenty ten course 22/3/20 but was informed that it was in just a bad condition so gave up and came home a day early..They only care about money

Don't bother until weather improves

Whole setup is a farce.

Course is massively under water. Is playable but only by causing loads of damage to it. Tee boxes and greens are fine, but the fairways were plugging every other ball, often to the point of not finding it, and it made it almost impossible to play at times as well as making the round a long one.

We soldiered on having driven 130 miles to play. Could have told us that it was like this (apparently been so since September) as we only booked a month before. Instead waited for us to arrive, took our cash, no refunds available only vouchers that don't cover the cost of the round if you wanted to go back.

£4.10 for a coffee in the clubhouse is outrageous and although the staff were lovely, they could also tell that they were basically getting by on other's goodwill not to kick off.

Twenty ten course design is good but some bland holes, and the location basically means any winter play unlikely. If it did not have a Ryder Cup history you would not say it was a special course.

Would have appreciated the call to let us know, and the fact we were then captive in the resort just added to the frustration. Cancelled next day and went and played Bowood instead on the way home. Better condition and a decent course. Will probably not use my £45 vouchers for the round we missed as it doesn't even cover the cost of another round.

Joke of a place that will soon be under financially not just water if it does not treat guests with more respect.

course was under water !!

The Roman road course is one of my favourites and as we were booked to stay at Coldra court we thought we should play despite the fact it had been very bad weather, they did say to us that if we anted to stop after 3 holes we would get a voucher, however we soldiered on but was pretty much unplayable on the fairways, spoke to some green keepers on the 12th and they were at wits end to know why the course was open, which was also our thoughts,, stopped on the 14th as we were all plastered in red mud !!

Wet, wet, wet

Appreciate the weather has been bad but the course was in poor condition. I would say the fairways had not been cut for 2 Weeks, in fact you couldn?t even make out where they once were!
Have said this was always a good little course for the money but now other places such as Tall Pines down the road are offering 18 holes for as little as ?16 it?s difficult to make an argument that ?13 for 9 holes here is good value.

Was expecting so much from the Twenty Ten course. Such a shame it couldn't live up to expectations. The course is in poor condition, it is boggy and waterlogged and really they shouldn't be letting people play on it in this condition. I realise the weather has been wet recently but I've played other similar courses when wet such as the Brabazon, Hill Valle, etc and they haven't been even close to as shocking as the Twenty Ten. Not overly impressed with the course in general either. The 6th, 12th and 13th are great holes. The 15th is stupid - why would anyone ever use the fairway when even an average golfer can cut the corner and drive the green? - and the other other 14 holes are average at best. On the upside the service you receive is special with the tour of the locker room, clubs being taken by the concierge, and the warm up on the range, but this just does not make up for the course being in poor condition. I wouldn't ever come back here unfortunately,

The reception was different from what I have ever had before... a guy loudly announcing and pointing in the direction of the locker/shower room and pro shop and bar. I could have understood his tone if there was a bus tour but it was just me!!! The Montgomery course should not have been open it was waterlogged even the slopes to the tee boxes were dangerous if there is a health and safety officer they sure ain't doing a good job. The conditions were so bad I left the course early and slipped in the mud and I am now nursing a badly twisted knee (Doctors appointment made). Information is that even in the floods of winter 2015/16 the courses remained open. If the punters are stupid enough to pay then this business will not turn them away NO MATTER WHAT! No refund given no compensation offered. Over priced Over stated and thankfully Over the Severn Bridge.

Played mid day 6 March 2016 as part of a deal. The course was beyond boggy, 16 out of the 18 greens aireated and sandy, pace of play was excruciatingly slow 5 hours 15 mins. YOU MUST HAVE A BUGGY TO PLAY THIS COURSE... I am a fit 53 yr old but even walking from buggy to fairway was tiring, the course is very hilly and even going from green to tee you could do with a lift. As per everyone the views from the 3rd hole are good, but not good enough to make up for the rest of course. On the whole very very disappointed with the state of course and would expect far better for the status of this place. I travelled over 200 miles to play and wish I hadn't bothered.

WET !

Just got back from a one night stay with 2 rounds of golf. We played the 2010 on the Saturday and the Roman road on the Sunday(only managed 9 holes) In my opinion both courses should be closed at the moment probably the worst conditions I've played in spoilt what could of been a good weekend, whilst I know it's winter golf the course should a least be playable ....... Trust me avoid if it's been wet !

Not as good as it has been.

Good course but poorly maintained. Greens full of bobbles and tee boxes were bare in places. Bunker sand varied massively. Not good enough for a resort with this pedigree. Last few holes now don’t really work as displaced by car parks and archery centre. Feels like golf is less of an investment priority now.

Magnificent but awful

(The Montgomerie course, 2/7/17)
Not a promising start with the first tee tucked behind the driving range, a blind tee shot over a hill on a short par 4. The par 3 second is slightly more impressive, uphill to a wicked slanted green. It's the third hole where the real course starts, a breathtaking par 5 through the trees and off the side of a mountain, followed by one roller coaster of a fairway after another. A magnificent engineering achievement getting this course to stick to the usually soggy Welsh hillsides. Far more diverse and memorable holes than the 2010 course. All the greens are large, moderate slopes, wide fairways and not much trouble, very playable But.... deducting three stars as it is everything that is wrong with modern golf. Frequent 100 yard walks down slippery buggy paths, more tarmac than was used on the nearby M4, a resort setup for stag parties and D list celebs, continuously rammed with incompetent Fourballs. Allow five hours for a round. Ridiculous. I might as well post my review of the 2010 course here as well - just reread the above taking out the good bits, maybe four memorable holes total.

Good course spoilt a little by the rip off prices in the bar. We didn't stay for a drink after as we didn't want to take out a second mortgage. We enjoyed the round but wouldn't rush back it was a one off experience.
