Too busy. Too many members. Too greedy to get more members. All mornings block booked for senior medals and women. So when can you play?Afternoons? Perfect for me, or so I thought. But oh dear! Afternoons are also busy. Whether it’s players from the morning rearranging times I don’t know, but when I booked today it looked quiet on the website for 2pm. What a joke!\It was absolutely packed.\Golf etiquette doesn’t exist. The 14-08 tee off time behind me played their balls before I’d left the first green then their second on the second before I had finished the hole. At this point I decided to finish my 2 hole round. I have rarely finished 18 holes this summer due to slow games. I obviously will not be renewing my membership.

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.

Course in very good condition, particularly the greens and bunkers. Forgiving & generous fairways though round was played in windy conditions.

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.
