Very disappointing

A very disappointing visit today having played a few years ago this course sadly has been let down badly by staff neglect. The clubhouse, shop and staff were all friendly enough but where it matters i.e. on the course it was in a very poor state presented to play. No maintenance on the trees and shrubs made it very tight and almost blind in places to play your ball. The course obviously need rain but the greens were some of the worse played for many a year by our society.

Total Rubbish

Greens in terrible condition. Don't waste your money. I was really looking forward to getting back to golf after the lockdown. Farthingstone was the only local club that had tee time, and I can see why. I have no idea what the green staff were doing over the break but it was nothing to do with the course. Fairways needed cutting but the greens are truly terrible. They had been cored (fair enough it needs doing) but the amount of sand over the top was a joke, way too much and it was in mounds and not spread out properly. Maybe this was to try and cover up the mountain like surface they had. You could not take putting seriously on them. They even had cutting left on them!! The course is a nice layout, hilly but with a good mixture of holes. Just a massive shame no one looks after it. If you just want to hit balls on a course then its ok but if you want to 'play golf' its best avoided, which is a shame.

I have been organising society days for a number of years and never had any problems. For the first time ever I decided to try using teeofftimes and have been seriously let down by them but more so Farthingstone who clearly cannot be bothered to update the system. I booked and paid for the golf 8 days before we were due to play. I kept waiting for the confirmation to come through which still had not happened the day prior to us playing. Got in touch with teeofftimes only for them to say that Farthingstone could not offer us a tee time in the morning as booked and that we would have to wait until 2pm. Absolute rubbish! I now have to contact everyone else letting them know of our new arrangements

The course needs alot of care! Most bunkers were either GUR or full of small stones. Most greens are very poor and all need alot of TLC. The actual course design is very good! There are very well placed oak trees and ponds accross the course that requires you to think about your shot choice, as well as open holes that let you open your shoulders. This course could have the potential to be a real gem but the poor upkeep lets it down drastically.

Surprised me

I was pleasantly surprised by Farthingstone. I played many years ago & didn't have great memories, but I was wrong.
It's a great lay out with some fantastic holes, many of them tree lined & a good number of clever dog legs, water hazards & green placements.
It's a test for a decent golfer, yet I could see a novice still enjoying a round here.
For the time of year it was in fantastic condition, particularly the bunkers, which were superb.
I have to be honest, the hotel is looking tired & needs a few quid spending on it, but the staff were superb & couldn't do enough for you. However you have to balance that off against a fantastic DBB rate, which included 4 pints!!
All in all an excellent parkland course, just needs the hotel to back it up.

Good price for the course

?25 for a round is a good price for a round in this area, greens aren?t great but playable. Extremely wet week before we played so course was understandable sodden in places.

Hilly cousre

A very hilly course but with some good holes. The fairways could have done with a cut as some were pretty long but the weather has not been great up to now so could well be the reason for keeping the mowers off until it firms up a bit. Greens are OK but slow. They do have some good holes with elevated tee box's and having to carry ponds or lay up. You will get plenty of up/down hill lies as well. The pro was super friendly and helpful. Overall not bad but not the best, will visit again in the summer and see how much it changes with the fairways and greens.
