Rubbish condition

I have to say that this course now has to be the worst municipal golf course in the North west, weeds growing in every bunker, the sand for the bunkers is in the car park instead of being in the bunker. On the 1st hole you are welcomed with pot holes on the first green. The front 9 holes I am surprised I did I not see ducks swimming on the fairways, the drainage on the bottom front holes is shocking, I wouldn’t mind but the 3,4,5 holes have been remodelled so you’d have thought they would have invested in effective drainage. After being a member going back 10 years ago and returning to golf 4mths ago, I decided to go and play the course, I will never play there again. I will say that the staff that work in the shop/range are very friendly.

Just played 18 holes,disgrace!
Course condition is a disgrace. Bunkers with weeds and rubble in them,other bunkers had minimum of sand in them which was very compact. Greens very bumpy,holes dotted about them and very patchy.
Bottom part of course is a quagmire,lots of surface water and a General mudbath made even worse by people driving buggies up and down fairways even though notices say keep off. Pace of play is ridiculously slow at times as well . Overall a bad experience,keep away,you've been warned!

Not suitable for cattle to graze on

I don?t understand how after 8 weeks of no footfall the course can be worse than its ever been. The front 9 has been around a few years now but still looks like it?s just been done. The back 9, which has been around forever is slightly better but still needs some TLC. Major investment required here, because charging ?15 for that is an absolute disgrace. Awful fairways. Maintenance half done and you may as well call the greens GUR.

Poor condition

4 years after building 5 new holes and the same issues remain. They didn't put any drainage in and still haven't so when it rains they return to the same conditions as the cow field it was before.
Fairways have been ruined by allowing buggies and the greens are shocking.
The old 13 holes are better but the condition of the bunkers, tee and greens still isn't up to scratch.
Pay anymore than £5 for a round and you've probably been ripped off

Wrecked a once decent course

There cannot be many worse front 9 holes in the country the new lay out as wrecked this once decent course . The course was barely maintained when we played in July, weeds growing from bunkers that haven't seen sand in a long time. Fairways with grass cuttings left and nakin to being constantly in light rough . The greens in July had all been spiked usually only see this on winter times building rubble left on course that interferedwith play . All of us who grew up playing this course were shocked how bad it now is. Won't be going back anytime soon

Robin Day has ruined another municipal course

After he similarly ruined Bolton Open, it is tragically sad to see that Robin Day has now been allowed to also leave his hallmarks all over the 're-worked' (but certainly not 'improved') Regents Park. Awful drainage throughout, many bunkers a total disgrace, tees with more clover on them than grass, a driving range where the nets are falling down endangering golfers walking down the first fairway, no clear signage, new holes that are worse than what they replaced. What used to be a very pleasant municipal golf facility has been truly ruined. Just awful. I won't be returning. My advice is to avoid this place if at all possible.

Played the course today and I am sorry to say it is the worst course I have ever played, all the bunkers on the front nine were unplayable, they were full of weeds and plastic, I don\\\\\\\'t think they have been worked on for months. The greens were all patchy and some had gouges on them. The only good thing about today was that we got a free round, unfortunately we have to go back to play a match, if I was the home team I would be embarrassed to welcome away teams to play on their course.

The worst greens of any course I've played in the area.

It's a shame as the lay out of the holes are excellent, but the general condition on the course is a disgrace compared to other local courses.

The driving range however is excellent.

The greens have large marks in them and will bobble considerably, making putting a game of luck. The fairways are overgrown and the tees look more like rough than tees. Most bunkers are filled with stones, weeds or moss and the sand is more like wet concrete. Good driving range and a couple of well-designed holes, but the condition of the course lets it down.

The condition of the course is going downhill fast. The tee beds are poor, the fairways are more moss than grass and the greens bobbly and untrue. The bunkers all seem to have a different kind of sand in and most have the lining sticking through or weeds growing in them.
I think the owners need to put a lot of effort to get this place back. £18 in summer when Hart Common is £14 and is a miles better course.
The numbers of members leaving the club over the last few months tells you all is not well at this place

We have played here as a Society for a number of years now and I am sorry to have to say that as far as I am concerned I will never play here again.

This is the second year running that we have been made promises by the club that just fail to be delivered. The new holes that are being built were supposed to have been opened last year, but they are still not open yet. We were promised that they would definitely be open this weekend but surprise, surprise when we got there they are now due to open on the 12th July. I had a look at them as we went past, and if they are open next week they will be unplayable. Most of the new greens are already burnt brown due to a lack of watering, GUR everywhere you looked, uncut fairways and no sign of anything being done to get them ready.

The rest of the course continues to deteriorate at an alarming rate. The vast majority of the bunkers on the course are marked as GUR and have been for a long time. They are not Under Repair.

Wew spoke to a number of members are they are as frustrated as we were. The shop takes bookings irrespective as to whether there are club competitions going on or not. With 4 holes out of play and 4 holes being used twice, all of this just adds up to a recipe for disaster.

My advice - don't play here there are plenty of other courses to paly at that don't have all of these issues.

Miserable start

There had been incessant rain the day before and a 8 am start was at hole 10 - the back nine was playable. Then on the front nine we played 1 & 2 and the 7, 8 & 9. The rest of the course was flooded and the holes were unplayable. There was the option to make 18 holes. A miserable start to the round but we finished in sunshine

Round of 2 halves!

Not played Regents Park for 20+ years. The layout (from memory) is that 10-18 is the ?old? front 9. This is still a good 9 hole loop. The ?new? front nine however is a real contrast. Very boggy in places, bumpy greens and most bunkers overgrown. For ?15 on a Sunday morning it was ok, but would rather pay more & get 18 good holes!

The front 9 has poor drainage which causes many players to lose balls due to the ground being saturated, this balls getting plugged even in fairways.

The back 9 plays very well, much better conditions and a shame that the entire course isn't in the same condition.
