Stuck in the old

Played here a few weeks ago, really enjoyed the course and found it really enjoyable until we went into the clubhouse. The staff behind the bar were welcoming and friendly which is more that can be said for their members. Old clubs like this need to catch up as those members aint going to be around for ever. Shame it spoilt a nice course.

Reviewed Jul 9 2013

Played the Old Course at John O'Gaunt on July 8th. Perfect weather, gentle wind. The course was in good condition, with excellent greens. Some really long and challenging par 4s at well over 400 yds, where par is a great score. I believe either hole 5 or 6 should have been made a par 5, making the course a par 72. Virtually no water in play. Straight forward greens, setting up a few birdie chances. The service in the proshop could have been better, and the practice facilities are ok at best. Did not feel very welcome as a visitor. Would recommend Gog Magog Old Course over this for any player visiting the Cambridge area.

Have played here (J O'G course) a few times with a member. I can think of more interesting / varied courses to play in the warmer months but it's a remarkably free draining track so a great place to play after it's been raining for ever. Very well looked after overall. They clear leaves in the Autumn and err on the side of caution re: temporary greens when it's cold overnight. Lovely club house.

Testing course

The John O'Gaunt course is a testing par 71 for all handicap Golfers.
The course was in a good condition & greens were true.
Fairways & tees were well kept & saw at least 3/4 greenskeepers keeping the course tip top.
Facilities are fine & staff friendly.
I paid ?40 as a guest of a member which was a fair price, but personally wouldn't pay more than ?50 to play there.
I would recommend playing at John O'Gaunt.

A long established old course that is a good challenge for any standard of golfer. No whole is alike and every one of them is interesting and fun, with a few that are really very special, and all in good condition.
