Excellent Value

I play Downshire regularly. For a municipal course it is a reasonable challenge and in above average condition. As a senior ?15 per round during the week offers great value.

Really nice course - some tricky traps down the sides of the fairways and some well-guarded greens. Very well maintained feel all round.

Really gone down hill

I?ve been playing at downshire for a couple of years and used to look forward to a round down there. Since taken over by everyone active however, it?s really gone downhill. The course is poorly kept and the greens are a bit of a joke. I would give them a bit of slack as some maintainence work was done on a couple of greens but after a year you?d think it would be playable. I will say that the bunkers are kept quite well. I?ve played many courses for less money that are much better overall. It?s quite a narrow challenging course which helps it?s case.

Really miss the half way hut for food and coffee

Nice day for it.

Course condition reflected in the the cheap price. Played off temporary tees whilst work was ongoing with all the tees. Fairways were fairly good and the greens were a little patchy, leading to putts going astray. Staff were friendly and courteous, the breakfast (whilst simple) was tasty but a little cool.

Accessible

Good price, course was dry; driest I've played this year so far. Just played five holes as shoulder aggravated. Played 10-14. Ten is cool with a stream Infront of the green. 11 is a tough par 4 at 462 yards, dog legging left. A couple of shorter dog legs then follow before a nice short par three. First time I've been able to use lofted wedges with confidence this year because of good ground conditions: I have been sticking to a pitching wedge. Nice to see a shorter course too for beginners. Looks like a varied and good facility. Handicap 6.
