What the club says: Designed by renowned golf course architect Donald Steel, the magnificent 18 hole course at Overstone Park is proud to boast they are one of the finest and most popular courses for playing golf, taking lessons or hosting golf days in Northampton.

The course offers a \"fair but challenging\" game to the novice or experienced golfer, with a number of attractive feature holes. During 2007 we were delighted with the number of compliments the course received from members and visitors alike with many suggesting \'the greens were the best in the County\'.

Great value

Overstone is a great value golf course. It's a lovely layout & always in good condition. There are 3 holes shut at the moment, but that's to be expected with all the rain we've had.
It's still on full greens on the holes that are open except for the shortened 3rd.
The hotel is basic, but comfortable. The food is OK & the staff are always friendly.
A must play in the summer if you're in the area.

Finding the course using sat-nav was fairly straightforward until you actually arrived through the gates, when the post-code the club uses for their address is obviously in the opposite direction to the clubhouse - through the gates and turn right to get to the parking - don't park in front of the chalets - most are privately owned, and therefore not part of the complex.

The course had a lot of rain in the weeks leading up to our Society visit. This meant that there were no buggies in use, and all trolleys had to have 'winter wheels'. because there were no buggies one of our players had to negotiate the course in his leg-brace, which was awkward, but he coped, which will tell you that the course is not too hilly. There were however a number of very wet areas, and almost all the bunkers were more like lakes, and a number of us found ourselves trying to find our golf balls in the bunkers, using the rakes. This led to trying to find a place to drop the ball in the bunkers, without being nearer the hole, usually on a slope!

The society day started with breakfast, which was acceptable but not exceptional. A number of our party mentioned later that it did not include tea/coffee - something I don't usually bother with! I didn't stop for a drink afterwards, so no idea what the pricing is like. Both the bar area and restaurant area are quite small - luckily we only had 16 of our society out on this particular day.

Around the course, there were a number of interesting holes, some water hazards which were in play, and did manage to grab a number of our shots, particularly the 17th which is about 150 yards over the corner of a large lake, and played into the wind on a cold day and therefore played longer than usual. Can't really comment on the bunkers as they were full of water following the very wet weather in late October 2019. Greens were very receptive because of that rain, but seemed reasonably quick and true, but hardly any slopes to try and 'read'. the course itself was quite an interesting layout. A couple of internal 'roads' to negotiate, but not a lot of traffic to worry about.

Pro-shop was reasonably well stocked, and the clothing prices seemed very reasonable compared to my local course e.g. £25 for a Footjoy polo - with or without club logo, and the lady in the shop was friendly.

I'm not really into practice facilities, but there seemed to be areas for putting, chipping, and a short game area quite close to the putting green, all of which was in full use by some very smart looking junior players in very smart matching clothing - perhaps a coaching day, or county event, although we did not see them on the course. Did not see a driving range or net, but wasn't really looking for these.

To summarise, I would be happy to play the course again - hopefully after a period of dry weather, and I know our society organiser enjoyed his day, so we should be back in 2020.

Great condition

This course is always in great condition, especially the greens, they are superb.
There are some great risk & reward holes, 5, 16 & 17. Equally there are enough other good holes to test all levels of golfer. The rough isn't too punishing if you're a bit off line, but gets more difficult the wider you go.
The hotel is basic, but the bar area & food are OK.

Good

It's a good course on a stay & play deal. We'll laid out with a great risk & reward 5th hole & 16,17 & 18 a really nice finish.
I've seen it in better condition, but it is early in the year. One improvement is the bunkers, nice sand.

Best condition

I've played this course for the last 7 years & it's currently in the best condition I've ever seen.
The greens in particular are outstanding.
The course will challenge you in places, yet is fair to the average golfer.

Nice course wide fairways good condition

A pretty open course but a few tight holes, I like the short 128 yard par 3 4th over water it's pretty tricky , the green slopes towards the water so too much back spin and your balls wet ,over hit it and your OB par here is a good score.and the short 268yrd par 4 5th is reachable with a fairway wood or 3 iron but you have to be straight as a left shot is wet and right will be either OB or leave you with a horrible 2nd shot..always a decent amount of sand in bunkers too..
