Temp greens a real eye opener

I?ve visited South Staffs a few times and always been impressed with the course maintenance and fast greens, even if one or two members have been less than friendly in the past and traditions like needing over the ankle white socks have been enforced.

Visited on Monday though and the course was on temp greens due to the morning frost, in fairness they did Tweet this but I hadn?t seen it, as it was a pre booking a phone call would have been appreciated. Necessary evil to preserve the course but it seemed that after our 10am tee many of the greens we saw had seen good sunshine and didn?t have a patch of frost on them but remained closed. The ?winter greens? were just holes on the fairway, not cut any shorter and it made putting pointless. (The cold weather was forecast so they could have been better prepared).

The real eye opener was that the course in hindsight is actually a little unimaginative and repetitive. Very flat and straight I soon came to realise all previous enjoyment had centred around the excellent greens, with these closed the course really has little to offer.

On that basis I can see why they do all they can to keep the greens in perfect condition which is commendable, however it felt as though if more members had been out (it was very quiet) greens would have reopened sooner; a phone call prior to arrival to advise of the situation and offer a cancellation would have been appreciated. Overall still a decent course with well sanded bunkers and well prepared tees. Mature trees and OOB are the only real characteristics and the fairways in places weren?t quite of the standard experienced previously here so all in all it?s one that has sadly gone down in my estimations.

Ryder cup pairs event 29th September 2018

Great communication with text for shotgun start tee position #BigThumbsUp

pro very welcoming and what a lovely vibe around the clubhouse, only downside is some tee's and greens really close and you feel in danger from stray shots, 7,16,17 spaghetti junction and 6th green 7th tee log jam but the course is good and the new holes 12 and 13 look stunning.

£18 you can't go wrong with 11 prizes and 4 pin and Long drive prizes also, a good day out. Will be back when the course is fully back to full length.

Big practice area and a single net for a quick warm up, 50p a coffee in the half way house :-) 5hrs is far too long for a round of golf sadly. Pies looked amazing.

BGA TOUR

I think this is great course, well maintained greens were excellent, variation of holes and a good test for any golfer. The club house is very traditional and looks spectacular coming dowh the 18th. Great Course.

2 holes having work done on them, which in the long run will only improve the course, minimal disruption.

Great Course.

What a great hidden course this is. Nestled in the middle of a housing scheme it is so tranquil and quiet its amazing. Some great holes as well. The 2nd is a tester and if you walk off with a par there you have done well. Doing quite a bit of work on it at the mo with 3 holes but when finished will look and play even better than it currently does.

Great day and great course. Fairways were all brown with plenty of run but the green were lush green and immaculate. Members a bit aloof but staff were very good.

Bang Average

Played last week, entering the place is strange and you do wonder what you are going to turn up to, but in all honesty it is not that bad, it has a couple of nice holes, plays short but so is everywhere at the moment, greens average at best, clubhouse ok but lots of work going on with new holes, could be interesting

Superb Course

This is a fantastic parkland style course. Amazing considering it looks like its in the middle of a large housing area. Some lovely holes. Doing a lot of work on it at the moment , but in the summer I can see this to be even better than it currently is. Great opening first hole, slight dogleg right be aware of ther water though all up the right.

It was a deluge the day before. It was a frost the night before. I played in the middle of the day and you would not have known apart from some small puddles of standing water. Outstanding condition for November, and on a Golf now hot deal, fantastic value . Only gripe is signage between some holes

Hidden Gem.

This is a beautiful course, couple of uphill holes, especially the second. Some very tight fairways from the tee but widen once you leave the tee. Overall I would highly recommend this course. They have spent a lot of money building up new bunkers etc and it now looks a great course. Give it a try if you are in the midlands.

Pleasantly Surprised

Golfshake Team ReviewWas taken here as a thank you from a friend and from the off was really impressed with not only the course but the friendliness off the pro in the shop and the members out on the course. Excellent layout with great bunkering and great if not the quickest greens. Every hole presents a different challenge to the last.
Tree lined so accuracy not necessarily length is needed. Even when you find the greens being on the "wrong side" can easily lead to a dreaded 3 putt. Definitely worth the visit for anyone in the area looking for a good course to challenge themselves on.

Confused

When I review on here I like to think I am honest having played many courses over my life as a golfer. This all day long is a 3 star venue. Its not great but it certainly is not bad. Some good some bad holes and the condition around average that you will find in the midlands with average staff levels and budgets, worth a knock

Amazing hidden Gem

An amazing course which not easy to find as the entrance is in the middle of a housing estate.
Once parked up though this course has some amazing holes. Highly recommend and please give it a try. I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Fantastic Course. Sits quietly out the way in the middle of a housing scheme. Its a hidden little gem. Some great holes that have thoughtfully been thought out as sometimes tactics are better than brute force off the tee. highly recommended for anyone to try at least once.
