What the club says: Glen Gorse is a very attractive mature parkland course of 6,648 yards from the Medal tees with a par and SSS of 72. Considered as one of the more exacting tests of golfing ability in Leicestershire, the strategically placed trees encountered on every hole mean that the straight hitter will extract the most reward from their round.



Most Helpful Review

I played here recently having booked through the website - paid £80 for a four ball.
I've been a few times before, but its probably been three years or so since I was last there.
Course was in good condition for the time of year and considering what their normal fees are this was great value. Some minor changes since my last visit, but all positive.
Course has some really testing strong par 4's and a good balance of par 3's.
Great 'halfway house' at the 12th hole, and good food in the clubhouse too.
Enjoyed it, definitely one I'll keep going back to - May 1 2013

Fun to play
Have played this course before but only in summer. It was unfortunate that we played it this time on the coldest day of this winter and all the greens were temporary and the ground was frozen. Having said that this did not detract from our enjoyment. The course other than that was in excellent condition with only one tee mat. I do wish however that if temporary greens are employed the larger cups were used. Food in the clubhouse was good value and substantial

Excellent greens
Course in superb condition , plenty of trees to avoid if you are to hit greens in regulation.
Greens are relatively small but fast with hidden undulations.
A mix of long and short par 4s with inviting par 5s .
Friendly reception from pro shop and bar staff , Sky Sports on the tv.

Super greens, tough finishing holes
On a Monday afternoon the course was not very busy. The person in the pro\'s shop was friendly and helpful. The course is in good condition, with fairways that are a bit dry & bouncy. The greens are excellent, cut short making them quick and true. The layout means there are plenty of tight holes; the par 5\'s are fairly straight forward and this needs to be where a good score will be made. The last three holes are long par fours where good shots can still produce a bogey.

Ian Bailey rated 4 out of 5 - May 6 2017

Cracking course, eases you in gently on the 1st nine but you pay for it dearly on the back 9 with possibly the toughest finish to any non championship course I've played. The greens were superb for any time of the year never mind early May. Went with a large golf society and it was a nice touch for the President to come and greet each and every one of us on the 1st tee. Highly recommended.
