What the club says: Each hole unique and there are an abundance of cunningly placed hazards laid out to maximise the challenge you will face.
The club first opened for business in 1910 and now has a significant and friendly membership that rises year on year. It benefits further from fine picturesque views of the surrounding countryside. A really wonderful place to enjoy some golf.

Not great

Course in quite poor condition. Fairways are pretty much the same length of grass as the rough next to it. Greens going bald in places. I appreciate the course is surrounded by public pathways but as I went to tee off on the 15th a local youth was sat on the floor with a bike and some form of alcohol right in the middle of the fairway and refused to move.

Such a lovely course to play, will be going back, there is 1 hole that needs work on but this does not impact on the state of play, get down there and you will really enjoy the day

4 of us travelled from Somerset to play the course over the bank holiday weekend. We’d booked to play 4 rounds with buggies.
Staying locally in a premier inn.
The level of service and friendliness from everyone we met on this weekend is hard to explain.
From people working in the club to locals playing golf or just having a drink was unbelievable. It really was like being with people you’d known for years.
We decided to have breakfast there on the Saturday morning and it was delicious, a real upgrade from cold hotel buffet stuff,
A full English with loads on the plate served up by people who want to provide a treat for you.
As for the course itself, I don’t think you’d find anywhere else in the country that provides the quality of course for the cheap prices. £15 peak times, £5 later in the afternoon.
And as time goes by it will only get better aswell, many more upgrades are planned. And to think this was council owned up until january where they’d run it into the ground and we’re going to close it. A disgrace really.
A massive thankyou to everyone we met that works there, you made our weekend a joy and we’ll be making the long trip back to you next year hopefully.
Anyone reading previous reviews from when the council owned it, please disregard them, they are no longer valid, and give a very false impression of current conditions.
Thanks again bulwell

Poor greens

Greens in a bad condition , a good course and good for a beginner , the fairways are in good condition, just the greens are very poor , one of the worst I've play on.

Nice open course

Nice course, very open fairways Good value. Downside would be a couple of greens a bit patchy and 15th fairway recovering from drainage works but still playable. For the price a nice course and very quiet in the week. Nice cafe outside the clubhouse too.

For a pay & play course that wasn’t really loved by the local authority that previously had charge of it the transformation since the new owners took over early in 2021 is not far short of a miracle. Greens are in good condition, fairways are good in comparison with those of clubs in the area which are suffering from the drought and cold nights; those at Bulwell Hall are very playable. The rough has been cut back and is well managed. The whole course is getting a long overdue makeover. The corner 15-17 is not of the best with major works to introduce a lake where the fairway has previously been very wet and boggy, I’m content to put up with the inconvenience of a shortened hold and “winter” green whilst the work is undertaken. Overall a cracking course and the twilight deal of a round for two ball and buggy for £20 is fantastic value for money. The new owners intend BULWELL HALL GC to become the premier PnP course in the region. Well done so far. A gem of a golf experience.

Have played worse courses

Where to start!!! I definitely enjoyed myself which is always the main thing. There are some very nice holes if not a tad basic.
Was disappointed to be hunting for balls even on the fairway at times due to the amount of daisy's ( which is even more annoying as the course has been closed for months and this was its second day open. So you would have thought that the course would be immaculate).
The greens were very slow but held a ball perfectly when you fired 1 in. A tad patchy in places but nothing too detrimental.
Getting from hole to hole was a bit of a challenge as signage wasn't always great, and the course does weave back on itself quite a bit making it more awkward to follow.
Only real issue we had was holes 15,16,17!!!!!
15 is temporarily a par 3 rather than a par 4. In my opinion this hole should be scrapped all together in the mean time till they can properly sort it. The fairway is unplayable if "green" is missed. I say "green in the loosest term.
16 is a par 3 that isn't particularly great, and 17 is nice enough but the green has seen better days. That hole corner needs a rethink
On the whole we all enjoyed the round. Possibly a tad expensive at £15 with the issues it has.
Would probably play again but in no rush to come back

Cost me a tenner for 18 ,fairways well kept but greens need some serious love. On the back 9 it could do with some more signage to tell you were to go .

Pleasant middle of the road municipal course that despite the recent poor weather has been cared for quite well. the green-keepers have managed to keep at least 9 holes in play and playable. Only one winter green (6th) which is not so good but no impossible.

Keep away

Council recently took over course is improving and time is required to get the course up to standard fairways were good but tee boxes and greens are a long way from being up to standard £15charged not expensive but course not worth that

all I can say is the course was in bad shape,the greens had been sliced not plugged, the fairways were uncut and full of leaves, this you expect this time of year but not the quantities we experienced.we had to ask twice which way to go, bad course markings terrible tee boxes, few litter bins and not one ball cleaner I have played some bad courses but this one is the worst and as such we will not be visiting again.

Nice course for the average handicapper always likely to score, that said there are some quite nice challenging holes. Fairways needed a cut - lots of Daisy's, had job to spot ball! Greens were in good condition and not super quick, pity that some pins had be removed by local numpties!
Overall great value, will play again.
