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!

Not impressed that the cost of the round did not match the website. I was told these were the new summer rates and the website had been updated. Bearing in mind that I checked the price before leaving home I was not impressed to be lied to! Cheeky guy then gave me change in coins not notes. Not a good attitude at all. Website changed sometime this morning (day later)

Played the upper course last Sunday for the first time in a few years and was very disappointed with the condition it was in, the bunkers we're unplayable and the greens we're very patchy and at £27 I thought it was extremely overpriced compared to other local courses that are in much better condition

Really nice course, some interesting holes and the greens are in good condition. Great bar as well.
Unfortunatly the place suffers from the complete scumbags that play it. Had a really slow 3 ball in front that could only hit the ball about 80 yards and just kept playing loads of extra balls and had a 3 ball standing on the tee box behind me as i was teeing off, chatting loudly, drinking lager and belching like pigs.
No marshalls around to check the standards.
Will not return.

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

Played on 21/7 Sunday afternoon, not a great start as a group of 8 were sharing two buggies and 2 sets of clubs. Such a shame as both courses are real tests with some great holes and the general condition is always good but they are now charging top money for what really is a pay and play where literally anyone can turn up - not uncommon to see five balls playing now, no proper booking system, half way hut owners have left and now it is rarely open - the owners have turned it into a cash cow - save your money and drive 20mins up the road to Toot Hill or Chigwell

1 star is too much.

Some greens were non-existent so the ball just ran through them and some were too thick so the ball would stop dead on some putts. Tee boxes were hacked and on numerous of occasions found my feet sliding into a pot hole. They have let the grass grow on the fringe and the fairways and it now looks like a barley field. I wouldn't normally leave this harsh of a review but charging £30 on the weekend pushed me over the edge.

If you ever wonder why the game of golf is dying!

This course has become the most expensive pay and play course in a 35 mile radius.

Great course Ruined!!

Have played this course many times and must say it has one of the best layouts in the area.However in the last couple of years it has been ruined by filling in bunkers and felling dozens of trees.Staff are unhelpful and prices have increased dramatically.

Four of us used up a day's holiday to play one of our local courses of which we have not played for a year because it's normally a 5 hour round and somewhat overpriced compared to other local courses.what a waste of a day the greens had been spiked and they also resembled a beach with so much sand . Trying to putt was a complete waste of time as the ball moved as soon as it hit a spike Mark or Newcastle this was truly an expensive game of crazy golf we could have played the abbotts weald park or Maryland's for the same money what a disappointment and someone could have been polite enough to warn us before we played to give us an option of going elsewhere

Very disappointed with this course. I played on the Lower Course (which is supposed to be the nicer of the two) and was shocked with the condition. About 80% of the bunkers on this course are G.U.R, with two foot high weeds growing in them. (even a few of the greens had G.U.R sections). I know it's a public course, but as a cheaper alternative in better condition I'd play at Hartswood in Brentwood instead!!!

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.
