Lack of investment

I have played this course for nearly 40 years and it’s sad to see the decline in standards.
Everything from course condition to staff hospitality is now poor.
The greens dry, the aprons need repair and seeding and most tees are bare and uneven

Lack of investment by the owner

This is not value for money.\\\\It’s pay and play weekdays and a shambles if busy.\\\\Nobody tells you a society is there on the day.\\\\Bald patches everywhere, tees not flat and mostly bare, the greens are inconsistent and unwatered, the staff just smile if you complain.

Dirty and lots of litter everywhere.

Absolute filthy with litter everywhere. Not just a one off, it?s everywhere all over every hole in the bushes and trees, all along the paths. Horrible. It?s like playing golf in a bin. Shocking.

absolute shambles

Played on Sat the 31st of Oct, paid full price for the old course. Fairways were woeful and under water greens. Not looked after by staff, upon finishing I informed them of the condition of the course however staff members were rude and didn't want to know. Absolute shambles, will never play there again

Awful condition

The course is in shocking condition. I found out that their mower is broken so they cannot cut the fairways. This has been the case for 2 weeks. I mean surely they should have more than one? Also the fairways and rough are full of uneven lies and bare patches. The tees didn?t have grass on them and are uneven. The first tee on the bottom course is the most unbelievable tee I have ever seen! Not one blade of grass just dry dirt. They also charge full price!

Open, but why.

Don?t get me wrong. Being open meant I could get a game in. However with all the rain lately the courses are still open with buggies and trolleys. The buggies are skidding on the fairways and cutting them up. All other course I have looked at are carry only. Must be the ???? sign.

Tee off at 12.45 on Saturday ?28 for the round, greens had been hollow tinned just over a week ago, which is fair enough ,but not cutting them isn?t.They bared no resemblance to the practice putting green which had been cut. 3 tee boxes are not in use, so you tee off the fairway. ?28 play at 12.45 is a bit steep when virtually every other course in the area gets cheaper after 12pm when you couple that with the shabby condition of the course you are left with a feeling of being ripped off. After this experience myself and the rest of our 4 ball chose Toot Hill for our Sunday round: only ?25 teeing off after 12 beautiful greens, excellent fairways the whole course in pretty good nick. How golf should be and at an unbelievable price compared to Hainault

Speechless!!

I grew up playing this course, and love it, and the members that play at the SEPARATELY attached golf club. What the tenants, and the council owners, have conspired to do to the atmosphere, and conditions of this course, is a disgrace, they have managed to kill anything about the venue. Absolutely no-one goes there. If you want to be grunted at by ignorant staff, play on greens that are slower than said staff, where everyone has moved on to somewhere better, then this could be for you. I'm not really sure why I'm bothering to write a review, as the small minds that police this place delete and complain about any negative reviews, which sort of represents Hainault pretty accurately. It is unfortunate that I can't upload photo's to better inform readers of the real picture.
