Its quite difficult not to be offensive, because the course has declined to an unacceptable standard over the past few years. I have been a member for the last four years hoping things cannot possibly get worse but , unfortunately they do.
The course and greens are in dreadful condition, largely to do with only one greenkeeper who has no transport due breakdown and have not been repaired, its wakefield council are they really that skint. None of the greens have been roped off or marked to keep trolleys and buggies away from the approches which are very muddy and have very inconsistent bounce, therefore punish good shots. The greens have lacked irrigation for past two summers and so impossible to play come dry conditions.
The worst offence is the use of buggies during poor wet conditions which have trashed much of the course and are allowed on even when all normal greens are shut, apparantely the club pro receives the buggy money and therefore his pocket is far more important than the course.
Very few people pay to play more than once due to the state of the course generally.
The course was and could be very good with the right management but nobody seems to have any influence over anything and the council have refused to invest in it apart from build a new clubhouse which most members would rather see burned down so they could repair the old one which is perfect.
I could go on but I think you get the message. The council needs to see this as well as the pro and any commitee members because it is how most members under the age of 65 feel. I will be joining a different club in future this club does not deserve my membership, only OAPs who pay peanuts for it will carry being members, although their fourballs dominate the course and make for unbelievably slow play upto about 3pm - Feb 21 2012

Golf Course Reviews for City of Wakefield Golf Club
(Round played: Aug 2017 - Score: 127 Handicap: 23.9)
Staff/groundstaff were very welcoming/helpful on arrival. The course overall is in ok condition, the occasional green was bare in patches but groundstaff were working hard to correct that. I thought the green fee at ?16.80 was a couple of quid too much given the conditions on the course. The track is however a challenge for my h/cap with some clever little designs to lull you into the traps.
Got to be one of the best Municipals around. Excellent value for Money, and always a challenge
