What the club says: Chalgrave Manor Golf Club is set in 150 acres of rolling Bedfordshire countryside. At 6,398 yards from the white tees, it is a good club golf course, and with 5 par 5's (one of which is amongst the longest in the country at 621 yards). The shorter par 3 tenth hole often gives good cause for memories, with the lake stretching from tee to the green. The tricky tenth also has a sloping green which has seen a good golfer 7 putt from less than 12 inches! The Captain's Charity Fund swells by 50p each time someone goes in the water!!

Really enjoyable round of golf. Wide forgiving fairways, interesting approaches to greens and some very challenging greens and pin positions. Great value.

Layout of course is great with some fantastic views. Greens are lightening fast but there are 3 or 4 greens requiring attention as there are some bare spots with no grass but it looks like this is in progress

Poor Course

Played here July 2019

I didn't enjoy this course & wouldn't play it again.I only played it to tick it off as i hadn't played it before.
It all feels a bit basic from when you arrive (walking to the 1st tee there are mounds of rubble/sand ?) to the hole designs .Also it's an undulating & hard walk round .
The green complexes are quite minimal & most greens are oval shaped with fairly flat or sloping slightly upturned saucerish surfaces & some greens just sit in a featureless open area surround with no greenside bunkering or moundings around it .I also found that on medium length approach shots the greens ,although not particularly firm , weren't that receptive & the ball would run to or over the back & if you landed the ball short the ball the same would happen.Quite a few greens had small patches of sunburnt blemishes on them .

The fairways & tees had a lot of weeds on them & the bunkering sometimes consisted of a hole with only one bunker on it & in an unusual position.
A hole layout map on the scorecard or a hole layout sign on each tee would have been useful as well as marker posts for the blind 2nd shots on the par 5 6th & 9th holes.

The 17th tee is close to the clubhouse but you then have to play a long uphill par 5 going back out away from it & we weren't motivated to play these last 2 holes .

Maturing well

As a course opened at the time when golf was dipping in popularity, it has done well to survive. The greens, which suffered from a disease in 2017, have all but recovered and putt true, with subtle borrows all over the place. Good use of water keeps the greens playable even in the severe heat of last summer. Give it a go, you won't regret it!

Good course for a beginner

A good course for a beginner with a few testing holes for the more experienced golfer. Only spoiledby the poor condition of the greens.

Avoid like the plague

What a dive. The clubhouse feels like a prefabricated barracks room and the car park is a mudhole in Louisiana type affair. The course, whilst monet has been spent in it, is a shocker. No challenge at all and extremely dull. The greens however were the crowning glory. Diseased soft muddy awful looking things. I washed all my gear and disinfected my shoes after playing here. Avoid this place. Its terrible.

good testing course, shame the greens have a disease at the moment, only charged us fifteen pounds, which was a bit pricey considering the greens were really unplayable in places.

Chalgrave Manor was in great shape, it is certainly improving all the time. Greens were better, still on the slow side though but good to putt on.
Quite a good lay out and some pretty holes.
