First time at the countyWell it was a lovely course to play.having waited a long while to get out on the course. And it did not disappoint. Not that i played at my best, too many 3 putts.

Quality heathland courseCheck out my feature review
Lovely lovely lovelyFirst time playing the main course. What a joy to behold. Even after endless rains no puddles or muddy fairways, even buggies on the course! This is a special place. Fantastic fairways, aprons better than most courses greens and a lot more undulating than I imagined. It is long this time of year with little run out off your drives. Lots of slopes both fairways and greens, but all in lovely condition. It makes you think which is good. Relatively wide for the most part but far from easy. It must be a brute in the summer with greens running quick but I will be back. Good pro shop staff. Yes some of the older members are a bit ‘old school’ and can give the club a bad elitist feel but ignore those and this is just a great course.
Superb course, but disappointing greensAn excellent venue for golf, but spoiled slightly yesterday by very slow greens, which bordered on pay and play standard as well as attitude of members with two of our party asked to tuck shirts in, with one gentleman not even in the clubhouse, but stood in the golf shop.
A great place that was spoiled a little

Shear delight even in the rainI always thought this course would be too difficult for a high handicapper. Some of the fairways were narrower than what I usually play on, but with some careful play, i didnt venture into the rough too much. Despite on and off rain, I thoroughly enjoyed playing here, and the clubhouse was very welcoming and food great. As the course is ten minutes from where I live, I would love to join, not many courses have this affect on me, I will have to persuade the wife, that it would be a good investment for me to join

GolferGreat course and very dry in winter. The new pratise Facilities are top class in addition to a practise ground there is a grass range, 2 putting greens and a short game area . Its a golfer dream for a full day out. The ProSwing fitting studio fitted me with Woods & Irons so I had to return to play and practise. Best course for miles around.

Fantastic course, many great and interesting holesFirst time playing Northamptonshire County and very impressed. A good challenge to all, with a great variety of holes and plenty of strategically placed bunkers. Given recent dry spell the course was in fantastic condition. Fairways firm with plenty of run and the tricky greens still in really top condition. Definitely recommend.
Great facility and quality test of golfCourse in superb condition for December 2017, a week after the snow fall you wouldn't think it had happened. really lovely layout, you wouldn't get bored playing here every week.
massive practice area at main entrance, academy course, putting and chipping greens. pro shop very friendly and helpful. £25 with a member very good value.
100% back soon for a proper comp

One of the best midlands coursesUtterly Superb, if its not the best ( Hollinwell ) then its the 2nd best course in the East Midlands, brilliant and in fantastic condition, the greens are very fast and if you are on the wrong side of the very sloped greens then "good Luck" 18 Fantastic Holes and the 19th was excellent and most accommodating as well
Northants CountyExcellent course in great condition. Tough challenge for all golfers with a particularly tough closing four holes, a tough 167 yd par 3 (15), a long 426 yd par 4 with very undulating green (16), another tough par 4 - especially off the whites (460 yds vs 404 off the yellows) with another sloping green and finally a shortish, but tricky par 5. All three final holes often play into the wind! Top tip, everything, greens, fairways etc slope in towards the railway line that bisects the course.

Nice course, very poor attitudePlayed this mid-June after a few days golf before in the Nottingham area.The course does not compare to Sherwood Forest, Notts or Coxmoor but is perfectly fine with some very interesting greens.
Our visit however was ruined by 2 things:
1. The club offered us a Monday deal with a reduced green fee plus food and a drink after our game. They knew what time we were starting and the lady in the clubhouse explained the deal to me before we played. When we finished we were told the chef had left so no food was available. Nothing. Nada. No offer of a free drink either. They were just not bothered.
2. We played this course on the very very hot weekend in June and it was sweltering. One of our group (a 9-handicapper from a very respectable course) had his shirt partially untucked as he walked off the 18th green. Out of the clubhouse jumped an old codger who promptly took a photo of him and told him to dress appropriately. When informed that we had seen other members in a similar state of dress, he was told that they would also get a "strong talking to". The member then went back into the club house and sat at a table looking out with his camera by him. We don't know if this is actually legal (we are beyond caring) but this stuffy and downright rude behaviour belongs in a club from several decades ago.
Needless to say they will not be taking any more of our money (£500) for our group and we will not return.
Played in late June in their Senior Open, and it was good to get some run on the ball and feel like I could reach the longer par 4's reasonably easily. It was a roasting hot day when we played, and they had iced drinks in the 'half-way house' which we passed 3 times in total. The greens were running true, but many of us could not cope with the slopes, and there were various reports of people 4 putting a number of them! Until someone pointed it out to me, I had not realised that there are a lot of right to left slopes on many holes (including the greens).
The food was good, and all in all we were well looked after on the day. The value for money of their Senior Open is undoubted, although I am unaware of the charges outside of this competition, except to say that the 'society' I play in which used to visit in Spring moved courses this year because of the increased cost of playing Northamptonshire County GC.
