What the club says: This picturesque 18 hole course offers a challenge to any golfer, with plenty of water hazards that will either leave you in self appreciation when landing on the green or cursing your words for the test of skill each hole presents. The course is set in the heart of the countryside and has plenty of natural wildlife, which would make any nature enthusiast want to learn the craft of the perfect golf swing. It boasts tree lined fairways which contribute to making this course one of the most difficult and green in the country.

Not impressed

Course in need of considerable attention, this must have been a lovely course at some time.
Fairways full of cut grass which "hides" golf ball
Greens patchy and full of moss
Lack of direction signs to next hole etc

Shocker!!

OMG!!! Avoid at all costs a shocking course, could be really nice but lack of upkeep make it like playing on a field that's not even fit for purpose. Greens what greens I've seen better fairways . A real shame. A thoughtful design but let down by th condition.

course bad condition

played here a few times but the last time i played with 3 other friends and the course was in a poor state, the greens are bare of grass in the majority of them and need water and feeding the fairways are not that good either, all in all the the course needs a lot of TLC and nurturing. Also booked and paid for in advance a bacon sandwich and a cuppa followed by a roast beef dinner after the golf only to be told after we finished our round by the owner that he had sold all the beef so he had defrosted 4 pieces of fish so we could have fish and chips, not happy. there was also a party of about 12 -15 lads on the course and after we finished our dinner 6 of them went back on the 1st tee and running to try and hit the ball just like Happy Gilmore only they were missing and taking chunks out of the turf there, the owner just looked and made the the comment who is that and then said oh its only them and did nothing . not good in my opinion. £15 a round on sundays think i will give it a miss from now on and dont advise anyone else to play will pay more on to play rather than Horncastle Golf

I can only endorse previous comments, the new owners are working hard to try and turn round years of neglect. The course is improving, and the food, clubhouse, and friendly staff are great.\\\\If the golfing community don\\\\\\\'t support people who are putting in real effort, we can\\\\\\\'t complain if courses continue to disappear in the future.\\\\Ok, it\\\\\\\'s not in the same league as Woodall spa, but neither is the price, come on folks, give these folks a bit of support, give it a go.

Course not in good condition at the moment as the crows have dug up a lot of the fairways looking for worms and it is quite bad. The greens are long and slow for putting but hard for chipping or holding.
I am just playing this course at the moment to keep my swing in.

Not a bad little course but the greens need a little work on them, gets better with every visit, not too busy either which is nice. the new owners are trying their best and are putting some good deals on. Good value for money.

Played Horncastle 14th April. I agree with some comments regarding course conditions. This course was only taken over by new owners in February this year having been neglected for some time by the previous owner.( 3 Toro cutting machines rusting by the greenkeepers shed) The new owners have plans to reverse this neglect and deserve support to enable them to improve conditions on what is potentially an interesting layout. All it requires is tlc and time. Help them out and give it a go. If golfers do not support this type of enterprise then it will become just another statistic on the list. The food and clubhouse welcome were both excellent and the clubhouse itself was very good. £10 for a round midweek won't break the bank .

Not a bad golf course but could do with spending a little time and care on the greens as they are a little scabby, Also a few direction signs guiding you to the next tee would be hand but all in all not too bad. Friendly staff and a nice drink afterwards.

Must be the worst course in Linconlshire. Tight uncut fairways, small greens which aren't maintained, need water and poor grass with molehills!!! Unfriendly owner with poor clubhouse facilities. Pay the extra and find a good course. Will never play it again.

Shortish tight course set in lovely surroundings, needs accurate tee shots due to plenty of trees that line the fairways, bunkers have been left to grass over, water hazards protect many of the greens which are well thought out if rather small. The course looks neglected & needs a lot of work, rough is very rough. Greens are neglected and of poor quality. My party paid £10 each for a round which before the round we thought was good. After a few holes we regretted it. Would not recommend this course to any friends in it's present state.

Has some good holes that make you play straight. Needs work on greens as they were not cut and uneven. Greens are very small. Only 1 trolley to hire.

Played on a Groupon so great value. stunning fairways. greens were horrendous, looked like they hadn't seen water for weeks and were cracking in every direction. Course layout was a bit hectic, crossing other fairways to get between greens and tees. I would like to go back if the greens were as nice as the fairways!
