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.

First time playing the course. My understanding is that the course has recently changed ownership & there?s clearly some work that needs doing & that appears to be underway. The greens were quick & true, albeit a little patchy in places & the tee boxes need some attention. However this didn?t distract from a very enjoyable round, on a very scenic course. All Of the staff were friendly & welcoming.

We had a society day here which was enjoyed by all. Course very well presented with true greens & fairways that are holding their own in the dry weather. Nick the manager was very easy to deal with & the day went without a hitch. Good food & friendly efficient service in the bar. We will be back.

Rolling Hills, Superb Views

Played here on a warm, sunny day. It's uphill & down dale, and it was a pretty strenuous walk. Some of the views are outstanding, and several very challenging holes. Apparently it it up for sale, and there was sadly, an air of not quite being up to scratch. Lots of uncut rough areas, and weeds on the fairways, which should have been sorted. Some of the fairways were a bit ropey - apparently a hangover from last year's very hot weather. If this place was really well maintained it would merit a "very good". It'll be interesting to see how it pans out. At the moment it is not somewhere I would rush back to, given the number of terrific other courses available at similar prices around that area.

Lovely course

Lovely course out in the countryside with no traffic or other noise. Some great holes, watch out for the 3-tier green on the par 5 13th. Great layout and very good greens and look forward to playing it each year.

Hadn't played this course since 2017 but we were pleased to get a tee time on a Monday at a decent rate. Course was generally in really good condition. The greens were so fast and there was minimal evidence of pitch marks on them which is a welcome situation. Fairways ran fast and you had to ensure you placed your ball in the right place. The only negative was a very strong wind but that wasn't the club's fault. Would recommend to anybody.
