It's hard to know what to write about Painswick. Perhaps expectations played a part here and I don't want to be too critical, but in all honestly I left the course wondering what on Earth the fuss was about. Having played Cleeve, and quite a few other courses you might label 'quirky', I had quite high expectations on a beautiful October Day, not too windy, and everything set up for a good round. I gave it a few holes to get going, but by the 11th or so, I realised that sometimes quirky just means 'a bit rubbish'. Then views are good, but pretty much everything else about the course isn't. The condition is easily forgivable given the land and restrictions in place. And my criticism isn't aimed at the club either. It is what it is. But what it is, is just a fairly poor golf course, with some admittedly 'interesting' holes and perspectives. For example, the 6th is definitely a great hole, and some aspects of the hole it shares a fairway with are nice to look at. But at very few points do these bits add up to anything recognisable as a decent golf hole. Of course, everyone makes their own mind up, but the fact that Painswick is being touted as a 'must-play' when there are so many other better options out there is something that perplexed me and my playing partner. Cleeve is quirky too. But under the surface there are some genuinely great holes at Cleeve, and you can imagine it being a really top class course if it wasn't based on common land. So, I don't blame Painswick at all. It's a course on a hill, with good views. But if you come for the golf, I think you are likely to be disappointed.

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.

Fine for the price, course is on common land so walkers around but the greens are brilliant and the views are breathtaking.

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.

There is nothing particularly wrong with the course, but there are just too many walkers. Also because the back 9 retraces your route on the first 9, you also bump into golfers coming the other way. My main criticism though is narrow fairways, and impossible rough - quite simply if you miss the fairway you've lost your ball. Very frustrating as it does have some fun holes.

Nice little club hidden away in the countryside. The course is public parkland which made for a frustrating round as there were lots of ramblers, dog walkers, cyclists and horse riders all over the course. Sadly ruined the round but these things happen.

Short, but different. Some quirky holes that take some playing. Cheap, nice views, but beware the walkers. Nice clubhouse, worth a game.

Parkland/inland links

A quirky little course with some very challenging holes. I was fortunate enough to play with someone who’d played the course before otherwise the multiple blind shots would have been a challenge, especially as a straight ball is not my norm at present.

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
