An excellent course in excellent condition. Went with a society where people have a broad range of handicaps - 14 to 28 - nd there is enough on this course to make it challenging for all in that range.

This is a fairly straightforward course and relatively short with more dog legs than your average course. Conditions were quite wet and half the tees were off the mats but the greens were in great condition. All considered it was an enjoyable round and at an excellent price of under 20 quid.

My local course, but not one that has been looking that great recently. That said, lots of work is being done to the greens and hopefully that will return it to its rightful place, which is in amongst some of the best public courses around.

I also think that given the recent conditions it is a little pricey, but given the number of regular players that keep coming back to play it I guess I am one of the few thinking that.

Played Downshire for the first time in a long while- still playing good with quickish true greens. Fairways were dry and hard, showing signs of use but still better than expected. Some construction work being done on some bunkers (notably 12th) but this does not detract from the overall state of the course. A friendly smile was waiting for us in the clubhouse, serving good beer to reflect on a very pleasant day.

Nice course - if a little short. Good condition. Very nice, fast greens, tricky to get close in dry sunny weather. Recommended to friends and will be back, great value for an afternoon game at the weekend.

The course is in very good condition. There are plenty of dog legs and in my opinion, one must take care not to overuse driver. The green fees are not bad. The management is paying attention on maintaining standards e.g. on dress code etc.
