What the club says: Kingsthorpe provides a challenging yet fair test of golf synonymous with the design skills associated with the legendary Harry Colt. Accuracy off the tee is paramount to afford the golfer the opportunity to hit the right part of the small undulating greens. Many birdie opportunities await if you can achieve this, whilst par becomes tough if off line or faced with downhill sloping putts.

Decent

This was a decent course.
Challenging greens and overall you needed to think about your game.
Some of the fairways were not in great condition.
But overall enjoyed the course.

Would be nice if the club house was still open at 8:30pm to get a post round drink!

Best kept course

A true gem here in Northamptonshire. Tight fairways challenge your accuracy, greens to hone your judgement skills ( who needs a flat surface) . View the course flyover on the website you will want to play . Good clubhouse for your event, and a half way house too.

Played here for the first time and thought it was a very well looked after course. Greens were in very good condition. The fairways were good to. A very tight course in places so you have to keep it straight and in play. A few short par 4's to tempt you to go for the green in 1. Will play here again.

Played Sun 30th Oct 16

I had only played this course once and many years ago so was looking forward to returning. I'd found a great deal on one of the golf apps so got excellent VFM.

The course was under a sea of dead autumn leaves which did make the ball hard to find ... on the fairway ... twice! However for this late in the golfing year the greens were in fine nick and were a pleasure to put on.

I'd forgotten just how tight this course was, if you haven't been before it really does take up a ridiculously small amount of room for an 18 hole course. It's situated right in the heart of a bunch of Northampton housing estates. It's so tight in fact that there is a particular area of the course where the tee boxes of the 3rd, 5th and 7th and the greens of the 2nd and 6th are all within a half football pitch of each other. I know of no other course where this is the case, that's how tight it is.

There are a couple of tee boxes that are literally right at the side of the green that often an errant shot comes flying nearby. On no other course have I heard the cries of "fore" as often as can be heard on this course. With all that said though, this extreme tightness mysteriously adds to its charm.

It is tight but if you can hit a ball straight it is very easy to score. If you can hit a ball long and straight then it truly is a gift of a course. A number of the par 4s are very drive able, the 3rd, 10th and 11th being examples. But even after the drives on the 1st, 8th, 16th and 17th I was left with under 75 yds to go on all of them. Unfortunately it only has the 1 par 5 but hey, you'll live.

Ok so it's tight, quirky, very short, hilly and I suppose a little bit dangerous due to the proximity of tee boxes and greens on some holes. But with all that said, it's really good fun, has bags of character and can be great value for money. And to finish the round the 18th has a balcony bar overlooking it that is so close you to the green you can actually to see the fear in the putting players eyes as they know 20 or 30 pairs of eyes are watching. If you putt well, get ready for the plaudits. If you hit a stinker get ready for the banter coming from the balcony.

Very friendly course and members, we pitched up to find ourselves teeing off behind a seniors match, one of the members approached us and proceeded to inform us that we were teeing off behind them(4 ball) and there were three more 4 balls in front of them. They suggested we go off the 10th as there was only a couple of 3 balls off there and we'd get held up less. This proved to be very good advice as we were not held up the whole way round despite only being a 2 ball. The greens were in excellent condition and very consistent, an very enjoyable round.
