Highly Recommended 2018

What the club says: An interesting and varied layout constructed over the gently rolling valleys of Northamptonshire - all three nines having some superb holes. There is also a total of 17 lakes which are strategically placed to encourage golfers to think their way round the course. The putting surfaces benefit from a state-of-the-art irrigation system that gives great year-round consistency - essential for reading the challenging greens. The 'Red' course is the longest at 3,332 yards, with the 'Blue' measuring 3,277 and the 'Green' coming in at 2,791.

Give it a try

Although expensive a reasonable park land course. Not to difficult and suitable for most golfers. Greens generally good although a little slow for this time of year.

Hard walk!

Honestly get a buggy!! It?s hills from the get go! Greens don?t take spin so it?s bump and run approach type golf. Some accurate golf required at times and off the tee can be a challenge. Sensible play is the call on most holes unless your hitting very straight or giving yourself free hits when no one is looking.

I play at Hellidon a few times each year and it was in its worst condition I have seen. We couldn\'t play the Hellidon loop for maintenance reasons and when we saw the state of the greens, we could only assume they were even worse than on the other two loops. Many of the greens we played had large bare patches, making putting a lottery. The greenkeepers had left a lot of grass on them understandably, but this meant they were much slower than on other courses.\\I had never played the Valley course so that was an interesting experience, but the lack of signs as to where the next tee was, or maps of the holes was very confusing. Other reviewers have made the same comment, so they need to sort it out. \\In its current condition, £25 or £17.50 does not represent fair value for money.

Played :- The Lakes and The Valley. The Valley course needs additional signings, from green to tee. For many of these 9 holes, one is looking to see where is the next hole tee off point. (The following group of golfers played 11 holes instead of 9 - they got lost).

A physically tough challenge

Some interesting holes, short par 4's and strategically placed water hazards. Interesting test of golf but in places had felt like the course had been forced in small corners and steep hillsides. A very tough walk, especially on a hot day, buggy highly reccomended.

Condition was average for early summer, greens very hard so balls would run through and into the rough at the back no matter how short the ball pitched. Pleasant staff and good value.

Poor condition

Played this around 7 years ago and can remember it was a nice risk and reward course. Unfortunately the condition has really gone down hill since the last time i played. Looks like the white tee boxes have gone, tee boxes scruffy and greens bare in patches. Shame as with a little TLC this could be pretty good again

Scorchio

Well laid out course. Would definitely recommend to anyone to get a buggy. It?s very hilly. The greens were quite grassy, but not that slow. Some good thinking holes, and the rough is ROUGH. An enjoyable course, better than a locally similar hotel/golfing complex.

Played this course a couple of times over the last few years and each time I have to remind myself of the challenges it poses especially with the undulating terrain. We played red and blue courses (Hellidon and Lakes). I felt that the fairways were in good nick but some of the tee boxes and greens were a bit rough. We planned to warm up in the range but it had been closed because the balls kept getting stollen.

Nice course, slow greens.

Nice testing course in peaceful picturesque location. Really like the layout and my only negative, having played it twice recently is that the greens are much slower than you'd expect. Takes some getting used to.

Quality plus mix and match

Three very good 9 hole courses which you can choose any two on the day. The Valley is probably the easiest but all three are challenging with plenty of water to navigate. The last hole on the Lakes course is a Challenging Par 3 over water which is viewed from the Hotel bar.

Nice course

A really nice course, up & down a bit with plenty of trees & water. It's in pretty good condition, the greens are a bit bobbly & slow, but it looks like they'll be great come the summer.
It's not the longest course in the world, but that means you have to decide between going for it & laying up.
To top it off the hotel is excellent as well

Looking good

The course was in excellent shape and well maintained. The greens were running true, of a little slow, could have done with a shave.
Under new management, the hospitality could use some improvement. The service was slow and someone suggested a little expensive for what they had ordered.

Quirky but interesting layout on rolling hillside course with hardly a flat lie and a few odd holes. A bit of a slog if walking. Definitely a summer course, Played in February and course was very wet and walkways rather muddy. Greens a little patchy but overall pretty good for time of year. Excellent value at £10.00
