Poor condition - needs a lot spent

Despite a nice location and a relatively nice clubhouse , course is in really poor condition. Greens are okay but the tees are a disgrace ( White 3rd is like something from a farmyard ). Fairways not much better.
I’ve never seen so many weeds in my life.
There are some nice holes but it is just ruined by lack of investment and any/good greenkeeping. I think someone spending too much time on the horses/ owners club rather than the golf.

I was that unimpressed I gave up after 13 holes (10th hole closed so only 17 open) only to find the fancy looking bar closed… At 6:30 pm that’s not good enough.

This course needs a lot of money spending on it to bring it up to scratch and then it probably has some potential . Can’t see ever visiting in the near future even if it was free. Disappointing as live local.

If you’re in this area and better to play Broadway, Cleeve , or even travel down to Painswick. Avoid !

Needs some TLC

We thought the place was scruffy and needed some serious maintenance. Far too much clover and uncontrolled rough.

Haven't played this course since before Covid and there are new owners of the club, who are involved in horses. A lot of work has been done to change and add new holes and a gallop all the way through the course, one hole has been removed a some stables have replaced it. The work has not bedded in too well and there are a lot of scruffy holes. Having said that, the greens were immaculate except for 2 of the new ones which were not up to standard. Fairways great and also bunkers had lots of sand in them. Views fabulous but rather strange having horses run by as you are playing your shots. Members very friendly and pace of play good. Did not stay for food as the clubhouse menu was not your normal golfers breakfast etc and a bit pricey

under construction

well well well. it's been four years since we last played here and ther have been some changes. First of all immaculate greens and fairways a fantastic course. However, some new inspired additions somewhat spoil what was a good course! Naunton Downs is defined by hole 6 a dastardly tee shot across a tree lined ravine. But one is enough! There is no reason to put in another at hole 10 - a treacherous climb up a muddy path to the tee and then a ball losing strike across the same ravine. As for hole 17, a rather ugly yet difficult strike across a lake. At the same time works are underway to install a "gallop" right through the middle of the golf course. It might be worth another go when the new lake has filled up, underpasses have been installed where the gallop crosses a fairway and paths are installed where there is now mud. We'll give it another go in a couple of years!

Such a shame!

The course is part building site with wide muddy trenches across some fairways. Such a shame as this was a great course previously that was playable all year round. Now very rough around the edges with the new holes in the worst condition! Won't be going back any time soon!

In decline

I have played this course numerous times over the years and it has been good value for money in the past and a fair test....nothing exciting. However with this visit there has been an obvious decline in the course maintenance. The tees are a disgrace with only the greens appearing to be maintained. Avoid until vast improvement.
