DO NOT PLAY THIS COURSE

U MAINTAINED. no effort has gone into maintenance 0%. The tees are longer than the rough. The fairway is the same level as the rough. The greens are what you expect from a poor fairway. All holes are waterlogged and there is no indication of any of this on their website. I drove up from Ramsgate as I used to play here some 15yrs ago and what a serious waste of time and effort. If there had been any sembelence of what laid ahead I would of run a mile. Avoid like the plague and play Hainault or Risebridge. The only reason I give it an excellent course layout/challenge is because it is impossible to complete a par score on this course. This is without doubt the ****** golf course I have ever played in 30 years of golf

WTF

Is this even a golf course? Horrendous!! I dont know where the rough starts and the greens finish- its all one big mess. Dont waste your time or money unless you want to take a walk through the countryside and see some flags

Gone Downhill

Greens are dead and cracked making serious putting impossible - more hit and hope. This used to be a good option for a fun day's golf - it was never anything like a top course but it was good value. Even though it's still very reasonably priced, it's not good value anymore. Whether it's council cutbacks I don't know, but it's gone seriously downhill. And despite the course being virtually empty, there were no trolleys available due to a lack of handles. I've enjoyed playing this course over the last few years but I won't be going again in a hurry.

Nice quiet council run course.

Good but not a full serviced course so not in perfect condition but is definitely kept well enough to play on and i would recommend.

This is an interim view because I really like this course. However, the clubhouse is closed at present due to total refurbishment although you can get a beer from the restaurant next door to drink outside. This is OK on a sunny day but I'm not sure what happens if it's raining. Also, on this visit, the greens were the worst I've ever known them and really need some work. As I say I normally rate this course as being excellent value for money and worth a visit for a fun day out but, until the clubhouse is finished and the greens improve, you might want to give it a miss.

I played the short 9 par 3 course and it is probably the worst course I have played. The tee off area is terrible you cannot even tell where the tee off is the ground is maintained very well and I don't even think there is a drainage system. this place will make you hate gold rather then enjoy it!!! I wouldn't even consider it as a golf course and also not the cheapest U can get much better golf for cheaper price else where

The worst par 3 course I have EVER been on. I am 10 years old and my Nan took me there today. My Nan had to ask/tell four people (and two dogs) to move off the course. Firstly, there was a Mother and Father with A BABY using the fairway as a park! Secondly, a man and two children (one on a bike!) who were also walking over the fairway. Then, a boy was running around a greenside bunker, presumably about to build a sandcastle! Lastly, a man and two dogs walked about as if he were in a park! Also, the course was in a terrible condition and not worth the charge £17. We both agreed we would never go again!

I played teh par 3 yesterday to tighten up my short game. The course was in a dreadful state. The greens were a mixture of dead grass, bare mud and moss. The tee boxes were patchy. The bunkers were unkempt without a rake in sight. Dog's everywhere, joggers running across greens. at £8.50 it's pretty cheap but i'll never go back.

Fairly flat demanding course, yet another course with very few ballwashers, but the washers at Failop had no water in them.

This course is fine for a high Handicapper/beginner like myself, the people on reception are friendly and helpfull and it wasn't too busy, so no stress about taking your time or a few mulligans!
The fairways were well kept and most of the greens were good enough although some were covered in wormcasts or goose crap!
Untill my golf improves this course is more than adequate for my needs. Recommended.

Disappointing

I used to play this course regularly about five years ago. It is now in an awful condition. The tee’s are mostly overgrown. Ninety five percent of the greens have little or no grass. All have cracks in them due to dry weather. I am not sure if I shall play there again.

Looks Dreadful

I live a drive and a wedge from Fairlop Waters. I have played a few times in years gone by and actually believe with some love it would be a good course. Went for a walk over there yesterday and I have to say I have never seen a golf course in worse condition, from the tee boxes to the greens, I didn't include fairways as I didn't see any grass cut short enough to be classed as such. 2pm on a nice Sunday afternoon in May and we saw the grand total of 3 golfers. Says it all. Such a shame!

Awful course

I played Fairlop for the first time in over 10 years today. It is in absolutely disgusting condition. I doubt any kind of upkeep has taken place for at least 2/3 years. Most greens were on the fairway. Tees were indistinguishable. No wonder it was empty. DO NOT waste your money here.
