“Annual Masters Sunday Driver Golf Trip”

Just returned from our second visit to Hill Valley on our now annual golf trip, as usual we played the short Sapphire course, on completion we checked in to the hotel.
We were greeted with the warmest of welcomes from the reception staff special thanks to Michelle, Nikki and Christine for their patience and excellent customer service.

The food was excellent as usual, everyone in our group complemented the quality of cuisine and the restaurant staff, again special thanks to Steph who attended to our table for the evening meal and the breakfast staff Debbie and the senior server ( I forgot his name), very professional and informative especially about the famous black pudding from the isle of Stornoway. which was excellent. Bar staff Annalisa and a special thanks to Ian for looking after us in the Masters bar, thanks for going that extra mile to make sure we were looked after on Sunday night watching Bubba win his second Masters.

Finally not forgetting the Pro shop staff Matt and Andrew for their exceptional service although we were only a small group of 12.

I can only thank you for your exceptional staff for their professionalism and whatever your training program is do not change it,

See you next April

The price on the weekday of Friday, was only £10. The course was neat and tidy, the green were excellent and the fairways crisp. We added a golf buggy for £20 and with nobody in front and nobody behind as we tee off just before nine in the morning, it was bliss. Clean locker room a well stock pro shop, although staff were hardly bubbling over with smiles, maybe because we were going out and they were'nt but who knows. Very relaxing day.

Very NIce Course

I had played this course a number of years ago, but it has changed quite a bit and the facilities are very good, plus the staff are very helpful. They have a hole fly over facility which you can download to your phone, however my wife and I have Android phones and it did not work on them and as a lot of the greens are protected by burns we came a cropper on quite a few of them, but still a most enjoyable round.

Fantastic course worth visiting

The course itself is fantastic and worth visiting. The hotel is lovely and very suitable for your needs, clean and spacious. The food once arrived was nice but small portions. The pro shop and staff in there were brilliant and very accommodating. The biggest let down and very disappointingly so was the extreme slowness of the service of the hotel bar and catering staff. You could blame the current situation but it was appalling. Ruined the 4 day break for us.

Lots of trees

One of the most challenging courses I have ever played. It's a par 73 with many trees and very tight off the tee so accuracy is very important. All bunkers were GUR due to the Corona situation . I suspect the bunkers if they had sand would have been difficult to play. There were quite a few and some very deep.

Fabulous

What a beautiful course, fantastic fairways, super fast greens, friendly staff in the pro shop; my first time playing here and I absolutely loved it. I'm a high handicapper but I can hit the ball straight, which is required due to the tight fairways.

We got a deal on tee off times, ?15 for the round, but even at the usual ?45, it would have been a great experience. The only thing that let it down was the practice range and putting facilities.

Played mid January 2017, for the time of year the course was in excellent condition and good value for money. £17 on Sat morning! Greens were good although there appears to be some repairs being made on the back 9 greens. Bunkers looked good, although didn't go in one so can't comment. Nice long course too, 5 par 5's is quite uncommon. Some good long holes, didn't take driver, wedge very often. Would strongly recommend. Score 30pts Handicap 17

Played this course a few times now as a yearly society venue. Returned again this March. Given the recent bad weather thought the Emerald course was in reasonable condition. All greens in play but a little bobbly. There had been some work on them, spiking etc and the Pro did apologize. Always good fun to play, some testing holes. Well worth a visit. Got to say however that the Sapphire course is now showing signs of wear and tear, sadly. The greens are very poor and in need of a lot of attention.

Enjoyed Emerald on first day, very challenging course. Sapphire on second day, shorter, tighter, greens a bit patchy in places, but a real test, and not a long-hitters paradise

Golfshake Team ReviewNot my favourite course ever, but not the worst.

Very hilly so if you dont have the legs you used to a buggy would be advised.

Nice mixture of holes.

I only played this course as I was staying in the area and to be fair if I was local again I would pay them a second visit.

Beautiful course but definitely not one for the faint hearted! Probably the hardest course I've played to date, I had a bad day on course anyway, but the wind today really made the course play 30-40yds longer per hole. That said, course was in great condition, even though they watered the 10th green right after we'd tee'd off.

Not one for high handicappers, our four ball was made up of 2 off 19, 1 off 24, and 1 off 26. 8 over won the day!
