The course has definitely gone down hill. Having played here for many years were disappointed to see how badly the course had been maintained. The fairways hadn't been mown, bunkers had established grass growing in them, the greens were in a terrible state and the worse thing of all, they had turned the 9th hole into a putting green. It used to be an excellent hole demanding a good approach shot. Very poor and very disappointing.

Poor reviews are accurate! I have been a member at New Malton Golf Club both before and under the current owners. The course is now in a terrible state, the whole course is very badly weed infested with the grass/weeds around the \"grass depressions\" in places over a FOOT DEEP!. A four ball around this course takes around FIVE hours and with many balls lost. I write this review with regret. I have enjoyed the golf course for quite a few years but the truth is truth, the Golf Pro, committee and members have all done their best to support the club and move forward cannot be faulted but when your only given a garden fork its hard to shovel marbles! The running down of the course is solely down to the ownership of it! the organic experiment has failed! Carl ( part owner and shareholder of the course) posting false reviews on this site will do no good just like the dandelion seeds word has spread, this course is now like a hot dog without the sausage! just a dry old bun, not to be looked forward too and very disappointing to eat! This course is no good for beginner or an accomplished golfer too many lost balls and unpredictable results when a good shot yields no result. And don\'t plan to drown your sorrows after your five hour ball hunt because the beer supply is just as unpredictable, apparently not anybody\'s fault! no beer, weeds in bunkers (sorry grass depressions ) bird assaulted greens and many parts of the course only suitable for Bear Grills training are not the fault of weather but the bad stewardship from the top! \\If you choose to play this course take a good supply of balls, plenty of water and food, don\'t tell your spouse you\'ll be four and a half hours, and take a machete with you so you can join in with the campers who were camped in the woods and wandering about the course when I was trying to play this frustrating game called golf!!\But then some people might say this review is not true! well not in Carls never never land anyway.\

I played this course the other day after gale force winds and torrential rain. I couldn't believe how well the course had stood up to the terrible weather. I'd heard the green had been badly affected by crows pecking the hell out of them, but it seemed to me that the greens were recovering well.

One thing that really impressed about this club was the very friendly reception of the staff and the value for money of green fees. The Membership rates looked competitive and I'm considering joining this club in the new year. I loved the course layout as the fairways are wide enough for high handicappers like myself, but challenging enough for the better players!

I played this course on 10.10.2013 and was pleasantly surprised by how well the greens have bounced back from the problems over the summer. One of the main reasons I play this course is because you always play off proper tees and onto propoer greens all year round and despite a lot of rain recently the course was playing well. The cracking course lay out is in my view the best in the area.

Golfshake Team ReviewProbably not the best course I've ever played but would be ideal for a higher handicapper (short rough). Not to say the lower handicapper wouldnt enjoy a round as the small and sometimes narrow greens were difficult to hit.
The greens themselves were riddled with pitchmarks which is disappointing as in general they are fast and difficult to read.

The club house was warm and welcoming and more than what you could ask for.

Other than the pitchmarks all the course needed was some more signs to the next tee.

Also worth mentioning that the sand in the bunkers was perfect for this time of year and not soggy or rock hard.

I would go back but not rushing back. All in all a good day.

I've played the course regularly over the past 10 years and this year I've seen a definite improvement in the quality of the course, particularly in the greens. Even the fairways are less lumpy than they used to be. I remember finishing rounds in the past and my feet felt like they had a thorough workout, but the fairways generally do suffer from a lack of water.

I believe that the course is excellent value for money even though it isn't the same quality as other courses around, and the staff theire are very friendly and accommodating.

Buggies on hire to blue badge holders only
£2 driving range - collect your own balls from driving range. Don't forget your hard hat.
Kevin - Very astute - owner has shot himself in the foot, It is in the worst condition I have seen it. Your review is entirely accurate.
Pity because it is in a beautiful situation and has been in much better condition.
It is now worse than you describe. The owner must have alternative plans for this land which does not include golf.

I played here on Sunday 19 January, encouraged by the sudden flood of reviews claiming the greens were back to how they should be and the course was actually very good.

My experience makes me question the authenticity of those reviews. The greens were in very poor condition making putting a bit of a lottery. On many of the greens the ball would skip and bounce randomly. One short chip on actually bounced at a 45 degree angle, such was the unevenness of the surface. The bunkers were hard packed and unraked. Some even had a thriving colony of weeds.

On the plus side the round cost £17.50 which is cheap for weekend golf and I had the course almost to myself. You get what you pay for seems to apply here. I will pay more and expect a better golfing experience elsewhere in future.

Greens have recovered fantastically after this seasons damage caused by the crows when I played there in July. Having just played it in November I feel it is now back to being one of the best value for money golf courses in the region. It is also a great winter course as it drains so well. I noticed they had some great membership deals which were very tempting.

Great value winter course. Well drained and playing nicely given the amount of rain of late. Greens have recovered nicely from some problems earlier in the year. Very welcoming to the visitor, lots of OPEN comps/events to play in, ideal for the roaming golfer. Some fantastic offers for Group/society golf this winter.

Reviewed Nov 9 2013 by carl/new malton - rated 3 out of 5
Unfortunately, the \"greens"\ did suffer from many daily and devistating attacks from Rooks throughout much of the spring and summer this year, which was further compounded by a prolonged irrigation pump failure, at a crucial time when the greenkeepers were attemting to repair and re-seed the Rook damaged \"greens\".\Hence, some further damage was done to them, as a result of lack of watering adequately during a fairly long dry period in June and July.\Following, almost four years of a mis-guided \"fully organic\" approach to course management, the \"leather jacket\" and \"weed\" populations had reached almost epedemic proportions.\However, under a recent new management regime and a selective return to using chemicals, where necessary, we have now sucessfully almost eradicated the \"leather jacket\" problem, with just one spraying of the \"greens\", so far.\And, the damage caused by the Rooks eating their \"grubs\", has subsequently been repaired, with the \"greens\" rapidly returning to an acceptable and playable quality. \The \" greens\" are now improving daily, as is the whole course, and we are confident we will not have this same problem in the future or with the irrigation. \Carl Weininger {Director}

Course was challenging but the greens were awful. Covered in leatherjackets and full of holes from pecking birds. Once the greens respond to treatment it will be a great course.
