Most Helpful Review

1st visit to this golf course and was disappointed throughout. Firstly I got barked at by a member of staff with a huge sense of importance when I wheeled my trolley through the reception just moments after I had been informed by the young guy in the pro shop that this was allowed to gain access to the driving range??
The course itself was in good condition however the greens had recently undergone maintenance (spiked and covered with sand) which made putting fairly pointless. I understand course and green maintenance is required but there was no mention of this as we happily handed over our FULL green fees. I feel those that are not regulars at this club should at the very least be informed of such things so that a decision can be made if visitors would like to use the course in its current state.
However, the most frustrating thing about the day was getting behind 4 members who had no intention what so ever of letting anybody play through. As part of a 2 ball we caught up with this group on the 6th tee and then had to wait to play every single shot for the remainder of the round. There were endless opportunities for us to play through but we got the strong impression that these 4 guys felt it was their course and everyone else will just have to wait.
Won't be rushing back to Chesfield Downs anytime soon - Mar 13 2015

Great course, really enjoyed it, lots of interesting holes, maybe not the most difficult, but good fun; balls generally easily found

Good course
Dry conditions but greens were in excellent condition and played true. Pace of play could be improved if 4 balls allowed 2 balls to go through.

Very slow play
Course was in great condition from tee to green but the pace of play was exceptionally slow.

No fourballs allowed us to play through so we waited on every tee for up to 15mins at times.

Have played this course many times before. It's an enjoyable and challenging course and can be quite physically demanding.

Bit cold and damp under foot but still a good round considering the breezy day we played. Have played here many times in the past and a very good track still.

A very open course but also very long. Tee's and green's are superb but fairways could do with a bit of work in places.

Not keen on the rockery ditches but all part and parcel of the course.

Good day's golf
I played in the Chesfield Downs Winter Series and had a really enjoyable day's golf. Although I'm not a member, I know and like the course and the quality of the food in the clubhouse.

First time playing here and I was very pleased, it has a nice mix of holes and distances, fairly forgiving off the tee and some well placed bunkers. Staff in the pro shop were friendly and a friendly member kindly showed me to the 1st tee and pointed out where to go for the 10th. Great practice putting green. Greens on the course in great condition. I played midweek so the green fee was very reasonable, I'll definitely be back.
