What the club says: Painswick Golf Club is parkland course at 5,000 yards with a par of 67, the course is very natural in an amazing setting atop the Painswick Beacon. There are several blind spots into and out of a 3000 year old hill fort. The course is steeped in History going back to 1891.

Peter

One of the finest and most interesting courses in England. This course offers breathtaking views and a captivating variety of holes, some with blind shots, some with elevated or lowered pins, some with sunken and tilted greens, and one of the best par 3s in the country, the 5th hole. It’s short but demands that you hit it straight, so don’t think it’s a pushover. A joy to play and the clubhouse is very welcoming.

Great fun- you must play

What a great experience it is to play Painswick. It’s short, 7 par 3’s, rocky paths and people wandering all over the course, but......
It’s such fun. Lots of really interesting holes with the requirement to shape shots and think your way round the course. I was fortunate to play it with someone who knew their way round, without that I can see why you might get frustrated as Finding your way round might be a challenge. Loved the elevated tees, the blind Par 3’s played over all sorts of ancient earthworks, the amazing views from the tees and greens near the beacon.
The only downside to the round was that the 3rd hole was out of play because some total scumbag has vandalised the green with what looks like a motorbike. It just baffles me why someone would go to all that trouble to destroy something?
If you are looking for golf with a clear line of sight to landing areas and all hazards visible, and a traditional par 72, then this course probably isn’t for you.
But, If you want a round where the golf is different from anything you will play normally, and each tee brings a new smile to your face, then don’t miss Painswick..
The clubhouse is nice as well, with welcoming and helpful staff.
Well done Painswick - Loved you!,

Tiring

Played here June '19 .

As much as Cleeve Hill G.C. was a revelation the previous day this course was a bit of a letdown.
It's very short in length but a hard walk round due to it's undulations & steep stony paths from greens to tees .The 1st hole ,that almost feels like you are going 45 degrees uphill ,sets the tone .There are also quite a few shared fairways & it did feel a bit crammed in . Sure some holes are quirky & unique but it was the holes themselves that didn't do it for me either as well as the hard walk.
There are good views from the beacon at the course high point ( unfortunately it rained when we played) & it's a peaceful place to play .

The greens weren't at their best on the visit & some tee direction signs wouldn't go amiss as the routing was a bit confusing in places .
Good value at £12 on tee off times but maybe less so at £20 on the standard club rate for a p.m. weekday round for what you get .
I am all up for a unique ,quirky ,hilly course which is why i chose it but it didn't really do it for me & it's a course for me to tick off & not one i would look forward to playing again.

Wow what views!

A tough course it has to be said, tests accuracy very sternly.
A tough walk but well worth it, a great place to play a wonderful round.

I loved it!

I can see this course being like marmite, you'll love it or hate it. I loved it!
Quirky doesn't come close, it's an unbelievable mix of holes, yes it's short, yes there are several blind shots, but the undulations, quarries & fort are what makes the course.
Superb views all round, especially off the 6th.
I printed off the hole descriptions from the web & they definitely helped.
The members & the guys in the clubhouse were all really friendly.
The current let down is the greens, they died off in the summer so they've had to re-seed them all & some of the tee boxes need a mow. But they are minor quibbles from a fantastic experience.
Gary G's long summary of the course is absolutely bob on.

Awesome course

It is a lovely course but the hot summer has baked it badly. It is playing more like crazy golf than actual golf at the moment. The greens need watering with large areas of bare or patchy putting surface and the fairways are like concrete so even a good tee shot will end up in the rough...

If you want to play golf here personally I would wait unti we have rain. That said the local competition was very kind in letting us go first.

It is a good value course if you book from teeofftimes, no one was there to meet us but you can get your score cards from inside the club house.

Fantastic but strange

Very unique course. See my other review for its pros and cons. If you're having a bad day at least the view is amazing.

A bucket list course


A bit up and down if that's your bag. A couple of shared fairways and a number of quaries to negotiate and a hill fort. No a course to contempate in bad weather but a good experience and yardage wise it's not that long. But there are a couple of par three holes that I couldn't quite reach with my driver and it wan't really that windy. .

You just have to play this course to tick it off your bucket list. The views are outstanding and it is very testing. You need to be straight and accurate and take oxygen for some of the holes. Well worth a visit

Found this a strange course, on the top of a mountain with lots of public rights of way and riddled with dog walkers popping up on pretty much every hole. Challenging with quarries surrounding the course and at least 3 completely unsighted holes. Wouldn't play again but it's worth playing for the experience.

Was a good round although playing with a female was tough as some ladies tee were missing. A lot of people oblivious to golf going on around the course too.
