Dale Hill Golf Club

Stayed at the above course with a group of 20 senior players. The Woosnam course was abysmal. The fairways were ripped up. We were informed that there was an infestation of leather jackets with animals and birds creating a problem scraping /pecking the fairways. Our group were all off the opinion that the state of the fairways was more to do with poor course management. Apart from the fairways the bunkers were poorly kept - the sand was cheap and full of pebbles and most bunkered were unplayable.
Equally the greens were full of little stones.
I'm afraid this group of very experienced players with many years experience had nothing positive to say about the Woosnam course.
Dale Hill we believe have no other option but to close the course and do some major work in order to bring the course back to standard.
I must emphasise that the above comments relate to the Woosnam course only as the old course was in reasonably good condition.
Dale hill cannot expect golfers to pay for playing this course.Avoid.

Leather jackets

We booked a 16 player Society day for last Friday (woosnam course ) I. Paid £10 pp deposit £160 non refundable. And 2 weeks before we went I was told we have the leather jacket infestation but when I asked was told only 2 fairways are bad , well all fairways have been scarified. , mud no grass . I believe they new about this ages ago but still took our money , leave this course well alone for 3 years

Used to like this place but the condition of the course was terrible. We was told the greens had been treated but this was a joke. Thet had dragged all the mud and sand and just left its around the greens to go rock hard and unplayable. After hitting the 1st in 3 to then 4 putt i should have walked in. Not enjoyable, will never go back and the guys in the pro shop should have told us we would be playing in a cow field....sorry that being unkind to the farmers of the world! HORRENDOUS

May Seniors Open

The Woosnam course was the worst I have ever seen it, the leather jacket infestation and what looked like the removal of all the grass from most fairways has left the course looking very sad. The local rule allowed us to pick and place if you could find any grass to place it on. I love this golf course but found it suffering badly!

As it was a shotgun start the bar was packed and we queued for 15 mins to get a drink as only one bar was open due to a ladies match that was using the other bar! Come on Dale Hill this is just bad management!

There are 2 courses at Dale hill. I preferred the Dale hill course over the woosnam course. We stayed for a weekend and played both courses. Not much going on in the club house in the evenings.

Course didn`t hold up to well to the rain. The tee boxes were very soggy and your feet sank at least an inch. Fairways were nice and not to wet. The greens had water lying on the top of lots of them. Some nice holes on the course but TBH i didn`t really rate it that much. Westerham GC and East Sussex National are much better.
I don`t think i will return.

Played twice (Woosnam) on a weekend package in April.
The course was looking very tired and needs a lot of work to bring it up to the standard that the club is currently advertising it as.
As soon as your ball leaves the fairway, you are playing off clumps of mud, bare lies and worm casts. There is no quality to the run off areas which leave you frustrated and facing a difficult shot into the greens.
The greens were OK but certainly nothing special.
There are a number of very good holes, some of the par fives are particularly good. The course has potential but needs a lot of money spending on it.
On the Sunday that we played, the course was really busy with a number of societies playing. The speed of play was far too slow and no sign of a Marshall.
We managed to play through 4 groups of golfers! and only then were we able to start enjoying the course.
The overnight stay was fine, the room was excellent and the evening meal was very nice.
I was a little disappointed with the attitude in the pro shop, no great enthusiasm or welcome.
The driving range is particularly poor with old tired mats and a few range balls for £2.
I do hope the club can raise the quality of the Woosman Course, its design deserves it.

Rating is because the course had been hollow-tined. The greens were absolutely awful - slow and bumpy. Short putts almost impossible to read. This isn't a fair reflection of the course which is superbly designed. Just don't go there when they've hollow-tined as the club clearly doesn't know how to do this while maintaining some sort of quality (I suggest they talk to Broadstone in Poole who's greens had also been treated but still played just as well as normal).

The course suffered badly during the summer from a combination of the hot, dry summer and leatherjacket infestation, although the greens were unaffected in the main. Successful remedial work has been undertaken, and although some areas are GUR, it has come back very well. The two courses remain good value and provide different challenges.

tight fairways, penal rough, nice greens

The course played very short with fairways running fast. The greens were a bit slow, but true.
