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

Played on a friday lunch time and it took 5 hours. It didnt start very well when we went to pay and the guy behind the counter had a strop because we wanted to pay two green fees at the same time. I mean how hard is it to figure it out. There was a starter on the first tee which was good but i feel he should of been out on the course speeding people up?

The tee areas were really poor but the rest of the course in good condition.

At half way there is a cafe type area but that leads to more delays as we had to let a two ball in because they stopped for food. When i suggested going behind us and pairing up with the two ball behind us he laughed it off. Don't people pair up anymore?

Overall course average, staff rude and very very slow.

Used to play this course a lot in the 90's. It was a top course then but it has declined significantly in recent years. Greens are covered in old pitch marks and generally a bit scruffy as are most of teeing areas. Around the greens is also in need of more green keeper attention. Variety of holes is still in tact and appealing but course is overplayed and tired. For 28£ you can visit a variety of private clubs instead.

High expectations, however greens very inconsistant, no two had the same pace and very marked and bumpy, felt a little let down for such a well written about course. Prices are not as shown here either, £20.00 on a week day and £25.00 for a week end.

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.

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.
