I have played courses that the greens abysmal, I have played courses that the tee boxes are abysmal, I have played courses that the bunkers are abysmal but High throston has the honour of having all three. As my mate said Yul Bruner has more grass on his head the greens or the tee boxes. There are weeds growing in the bunkers that are six inches high, they have not been raked in years\Not months.Worm casts have been there that long they are solid . On complaining we were told that due to illnesses and injuries things had not been done, I asked why were players still paying top prices. If you intend playing this course. DONT YOU WILL HAVE MORE FUN PLAYING CRAZY GOLF

Neglected by owners and players

Played this course often in the past when I first started golf and thought it was great. Now I’ve played many more courses I realise how poor it is. Having played today I felt the need to leave a review. Pace of play was poor as for some reason they allowed a 5 ball on the course a few groups ahead of us. The tee boxes are not cut, it’s like teeing off from the grass in your local park. The bunkers are neglected and look like they haven’t been raked in weeks, by either other players or the greenskeepers, with some having bricks and dirt in them which look like GUR but haven’t been marked as GUR. Greens were slow with very long grass with far too many pitch marks left and not repaired. No many slopes in the green, just plenty of bobbles, not running true. The rough was far too long, which I don’t think was intentional to make the course more difficult, simply laziness. Some parts of the rough which was cut still had the cuttings laying on the top of the grass. I think players don’t respect the course because they know the owners clearly don’t look after it. Not worth the green fee compared to other courses in the area slightly more expensive but much better conditions. The course does have some good holes, which if the conditions were improved would be great, but are let down by the poor conditions.

I have played this course a few time all be it a few years ago. I was telling my friends who have never played the course how good it was, I explained it did not have a club house but that was not a problem. What a disappointment talk about courses going downhill. Tee boxes? What tee boxes it was like teeing up in the semi rough and as for the greens it was like putting on a badly kept fairway.
At £17 a round I think we were robbed.
I will never recommend this course again and I definitely won’t be playing it again.

Played this course many times ( most weekends during summer for last 3 years) and came Sunday afternoon at 3pm 20/09/15 travelling 25 mile to be told I wasn't allowed on the course because of some 'shotgun' event, no idea what that is but told course unavailable until 5pm. No advance notice of this 'event' so wasted time and money ( 50 mile round journey and 70 minutes), can't express enough how disappointing this is, A pay and play course where you can't pay and play.. I have previously left positive feedback but so angry at the service offered to a regular player for short term financial gain for the club without any consideration for regular players

Unsure.

Disappointed having had good reviews from others. Think the heavy wind may have tainted the course slightly for me, but cons amongst other things (in order of experiencing them); the green fees cannot be paid using a debit/credit card, the rough is SO thick, that I lost 4/5 balls today having only just missed the fairway, there are no yardage markers around the course making it difficult for a visitor, the layout of the holes is cramped to a point where on one occasion we played towards the 16th green from the 14th tee box mistakenly, the slow pace of play from other golfers on the course was drastic. With their being a wind turbine situated at the top end of the course, I imagine that wind it prevalent, and think there are only 3/18 holes where you play WITH the prevailing wind and the rest are into it or across it, which is quite challenging/frustrating.
On the plus side, the condition of the fairways and greens was genuinely excellent given that i've had to play it due to my club being closed due to wet conditions. Will try again in the summer.

A pleasant course with well manicured, generous fairways. The greens however are disappointing and bunkers could do with more sand. Course staff and owners very amicable and welcoming. Such a shame that there is no bar on site.

I played this course on a very cold winters day with heavily frosted greens and rock hard fairways so maybe not the best day to judge its merits! However its a very relaxed privately run club, everybody is welcome and most of the time you can play without even having to book a tee time. On the downside, there is no bar!

I am adding some more to my last course review, I was at Throston with my Golf Society. I was unable to pay due to leg Injury, all the commets made about No Dress Code were from my golf society members. But I can confirm about a some players playing in sports clothing and sports Trainers I was next to the 9th and 18th greens and next to the 10th Tee, watching to golf.
