A jewel in the middle of Northampton

Beautiful course with lots of trees. Greens in beautiful condition, fast but with many undulations. Very tricky. First time we've played there and look forward to the next round when hopefully I will play it better. Nice bar and food good

Friendly welcome from both staff and members, played on a Sunday just before a competition started and was not made to feel unwelcome. Enjoyed the course but due to the wet summer the fairways were far too long and all 4 of us playing found the round frustrating as we were constantly searching for our balls. Very tight course but would definately recommend the course to others and would go back for a round if I was in th area. Always like a challenge but next time i hope the mowers have been out beforehand.

Deceptively hilly parkland course in the heart of Northampton. Not the longest but some challenging approaches and undulating greens make for a challenging round. Very enjoyable.

Greens in good shape. Fairways needed to be shorter on 5/6 holes. Tees need to be reshape to make flat.

A good course, just a bit tight and pokey. There are some really easy easy holes and a couple that are very difficult - even for a single handicapper let alone two of my group who were +18.

Reviewed Sep 29 2019 by Terry G - rated 3 out of 5
Course is in the middle of Northampton, and is quite tight, with some holes being very close to each other, in particular around the 13th hole - a 211 yard par 3, where the tee is right next to the 12th green, and is also right beside the 14th fairway, lots of shouts of "fore" at this point of the course! The tees all had long grass on them, apparently because they've had so much rain recently that the greenkeepers could not get out and cut them. This also meant that the greens were a little long, and consequently slower than they usually are. Managed to avoid the bunkers, which was just as well on the day, because a lot had rain in them, and there was even standing rainwater on a couple of greens. Some decent slopes on the greens to make them a challenge, and whilst a lot of holes are quite short, the greens made the course play harder than you would expect. Small car park, but there is an overflow car park which you get to by driving past the 1st tee and a hundred yards or so up the first hole, before going left, and parking behind a tall fence. When our society played is was quite quiet, but the forecast all week had been for rain, which must have put some people off. In the event, we had a couple of showers, one of which was heavy, and this added a little to the water in the bunkers, but meant that the greens were very receptive. Food was good, and was part of the package we booked, but I did hear one or two of our players saying the bar prices were quite high for the after game beers.

sub 3 hour rounds abound

I am a member here and I probably pick times that are less popular but I always get 18 holes in here within 3 hours.
I have played every course in Northamptonshire and I can't think of any other course that can boast that.
in these times of penalising slow play this course solves it without really trying.

Compact course in Northampton

Played with 2 colleagues around this course taking advantage of a tee off times offer. Arrived and booked into the club shop to meet the most miserable disengaging Pro you could wish to meet. No words of advice, no greeting no nothing - does not want to make you go back!!. One of us hired a trolley (winter rules) for a ?5 one of the straps was broken. The course is a very tight course and definitely challenges your iron play. The greens were in very good condition for February and the fairways played ok, a little bare in places but it is winter. The tees were a mixture of winter and normal greens so no real complaints there. Deceptively undulating so will test your stamina if you carry your clubs. There are two major downsides to playing here, especially for visitors, neither the stroke saver or the scorecard contain a course layout and the signage between holes is absolutely terrible, to the extent we missed a hole out by playing to the wrong green and had to go back and replay them - how embarrassing. The clubhouse is very modern and the staff in the 19th were warm and welcoming (more than you can say for the club Pro), overall enjoyed the game but they could do a lot more to attract visitors and make them want to return. Cost ?14 per round.

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.
