Challenging course bu local standards

The course is looking in good condition and currently playing fast due to the dryer weather recently. Near Rough is cut but don?t get in the long stuff! Putter lifter on the greens to avoid taking the flags out; so we play it ?in? if it strikes the flag stick and rebounds within a putter grip away. No rakes in bunkers presently and a few are ground under repair. Putting green is large and excellent condition with flats and slopes so practice is appropriate and challenging. The Club house, Pro shop and reception all very recently refurbished so it?s looking great. A very pleasant place to visit.

Open course with whispy grass as it?s defence, bunkers were rubbish, little or no sand in them, what sand there was was dusty, impossible to play a proper bunker shot! Course in general could do with a lot of TLC!
Spending lots of money on the clubhouse, they seem to have forgotten the course! Overpriced, can get better value elsewhere

Another course adjusting after lockdown. Greens ok. Fairways dry and very hard. Bunkers have not been touched in months, not even raked. Some are being re built. Ownership recently changed hands which would explain the sudden hike in green fees.

Good course for a society day

I played at Chesfield Downs as part of a small society day of mixed standards that meets once every year. The course is a reasonably forgiving one and the high handicappers in the group did rather better than they have usually done in previous years. The course was in good condition though my usual gripe about the poor state of many of the bunkers has not been resolved. The food at lunch was very good and set us up nicely for the afternoon's golf. Everyone enjoyed the day and we would definitely play here again.

Have played this course on numerous occasions. It never seems to change. Wide fairways. Deep rough is well back from edge of fairways. Greens very fast but true. As with all 'local' clubs the bunkers are difficult as there is generally a lack of sand.
