Disappointing day

The course has suffered like many others from lack of rain and it’s condition was poor with large cracks in fairways and the greens in very poor condition with bad fungal growth on most. The M25 is ever present and very noisy when near to it. The clubhouse was welcoming and friendly but the changing accommodation is cramped to say the least and there had been a flood from the showers which did not help. The course layout can be a bit confusing with some lengthy walks to tees but there are some good holes in between. Many deer seen which do not seem to damage the course unduly. Altogether disappointing and not a course I would easily return to.

Tee boxex could do with a bit more grass and better maintenance greens are hard and very difficult to hold.

Not impressed at all with maylands today. Played twice before and loved them both time but today was awful. Course itself was in decent condition except the greens which were very poor. Expect more for the money they charge. Which brings me onto the first problem. their 2four1 voucher policy. £30 is the normal fee but if you use a voucher its £20 rather than £15 as they decide that you will pay half the all day rate which is just stupid. Then despite them assuring us trolleys would be allowed on the day.. trolleys were banned so we had all turned up with cart bags and had to lug them around the course affecting the day. Shame really used to like maylands but today has put us all off.

Interesting layout

Interesting layout of course hidden dome dirt track behind a run down farm
Several holes cross over with others so constant slow play and waiting for adjacent hole to play shots
Variety of layout fairly good condition and good clubhouse
Watch out for local deer pretty to watch but leave fairways in very average condition which makes recommendations difficult here

We have battled because of Covid to make sure all our society golf competitions take place . Managed to book Maylands for 36 of us for 18 holes bacon rolls and coffee on arrival and burger after finishing for £40 . I think that is a very decent price for a Friday . Clubs need to make money and there were 4 societies out on the course thus very slow as we were the last society to tee off at 11.50 am as first tee time . Because of weather fairways are dry but no worse than others . Course lay out is a good society course . It was very windy thus a test of golf and 37 points won the singles and I shot 34 points off 18 . Not perfect but I think the price made it decent value . Not sure I would like to be a member and stroll up at 2pm and find 4 societies ahead of me .

Nice golf but you pay for it!

My friends and I have played Maylands fairly regularly over the last few years. It's a nice course that's not too tough, but enough of a challenge to bring us back, and usually at a very reasonable price.
So with the recent virus situation happening Maylands was high on the list of courses to visit when golf was deemed safe to play. I booked for myself and half a dozen mates, and on a sunny afternoon we arrived at the course.
It was only as I parked up that one of my friends came over to tell me the green fees were ?30 each for the round!
It seems the club had put up the prices that morning, and it was ?30 each and no concessions!
Someone mentioned that the club probably needed to recoup some of the money it had lost during the recent enforced break... but hang on, all of us customers have lost money either in lost work or through our pensions being hit, so if that is the case it certainly isn't fair?
I'm afraid to say that Maylands is a good course, but not a great course, and certainly not worth ?30 to play, and until this changes there's a dozen or more of us that won't be back.

Return to familiar ground

The course seems to be a popular venue but this have it's effect on the condition of the course because of the enormous traffic on the course the greens were very bumpy and a lot of the surrounds was very bear and the bunkers could definitely do with some sand, this said the deer on the course was a pleasant sight although they can cause a bit of damage to the greens and bunkers
