I was greeted by friendly and welcoming staff upon my arrival at the golf club, I didn't know that there was a driving range and par 3 so before my round warmed up. The greens on the golf course where in excellent condition and on some holes very fast and tricky, especially on the back nine. I would play it again probably on a winter special or at there off peak times

Fynn Valley is a course which is attractive for the low handicapper, because it is challenging to score well, but also fun for the high handicap golfer because there are enough open spaces to allow recovery from wayward shots. The quality of the greens is first class. The club atmosphere is friendly and inclusive.

Despite lack of rain the fairways were good and the greens excellent. Each year with maturity the course improves. Well done to the Staff who maintain the course.

A bit of a mixed bag. Excellent facilities, including a driving range, and friendly staff. Course was tight on some holes but open on others, so a fair test of golf. Played during the first decent spell of weather all year and although the fairways and tee boxes were excellent, it was clear they were still preparing the greens for the summer season. Roughly 2/3 had a sand mixture on the surface making them unattractive, slow, and inconsistent. At £18 off peak it was a fair price and I'll play the course again, I just hope that all the work on the greens will have finished.

Well, if you building an extension and you are short of some sand and ballast, there is plenty in the bunkers. Despite the wettest summer for years, someone seems to have dug the greens up and laid concrete instead. Nice layout,some really good holes, too many doglegs though, but the electricity pylons were a bit unnerving

Only downside were the bunkers which were truly shocking. Full of stones and in need of a good rake to fluff the sand up. Only disappointment

At £34.00 for a round on a Saturday at the end of February for such a distinctly average golf course is a rip off, I would expect the winter green fee here to be nearer £20.00 for value for money. Adding insult to injury are the numerous adverts around the course saying 2 course meat and 18 holes for £22.50 Monday to Friday!

The front 9 is pretty dull with few holes offering any real interest, the second 9 makes this course, far better designed holes and more pleasurable to play. (For the record I shot the same score on front and back 9 so this is not a rose tinted view).

The course does not drain very well and given the recent rainy season it showed as drives frequently landed and stopped almost instantly. The greens were reasonable, medium paced I'd say (unless putting down some of the severe slopes) with a few unexpected bobbles, I'll put this down to foot prints in the soft turf, should be a lot better in dryer times)

Overall, I'd play this course again in good conditions but at this price I'd give it a miss this time of year.

Poor Condition

Played the course twice this week, the course was in extremely poor condition.

Lots of work going on but everywhere is unfinished, it looks like they’ve started everywhere with no plan.

Green were especially poor, need watering & were the length of most clubs fairways.

New clubhouse is nice but took 55 mins to get a tuna sandwich & chips were stone cold. Was hardly anyone else eating either so not sure what the wait was.

I wouldn’t rush back to play anytime soon

Brilliant course

As usual, a very entertaining course, with a lovely clubhouse. Both the course and the facilities are undergoing some serious development and this is definitely one to visit next year, when the majority is complete. The new clubhouse is huge and very modern. The course has had some adjustments to some of the holes, but the most tricky is the par 4 second, as you need to get the ball over the trees directly infront of the tee, or shape a driver round them - neither of which I managed - oops !! Apart from that, very enjoyable.

Great course, excellent value

Played the course on 19/08/2018 as part of a society. Course was in good condition considering the hot weather over the last few months. The greens are true but ridiculously quick! Food & hospitality was excellent, would definitely recommend.

The only downside is the distance between tees, makes it quite a long round when walking.
