Nice Parkland course

Greens in lovely condition but fairways quite poor. Understand that it has been dry but very bare in places.

Beautiful setting; good course whatever your handicap.

Played once a year at a charity function. Always looked forward to it. A couple of challenging par 5s and picturesque par 3s. Rewards accuracy rather than length. You won't forget the 17th!

It’s rare that I give out all 5 stars on here but it’s December and the course was in mint condition, no temps and only the 17th from a shortened tee. One of the best we’ve played this winter and at £20 in the week, it’s a bargain. Some of the friendliest staff we’ve met who always make time for a chat and offer advice. We always really enjoy playing here and will always return whenever we can get on. A good example of how a course should be kept and run.

Cracking track

I was halfway there when I realised my trolley, battery and shoes were in the car with me but I'd forgotten to put the clubs in. Rang the course and explained my senior moment and that I wouldn't be able to make our booked tee-time after returning home for my bag. They were very understanding and said not to worry as they'd squeeze us in somewhere. (Even though today was a lovely late summer's day and they were booked solid). When I finally arrived 15 minutes after our booked time (and to a round of applause from the rest of my four ball) they got us on the first tee within 15 minutes. So well done there Rufford.
I can hardly pan the course after there sterling efforts but fortunately I don't need to. It's been a good few years since we last played Rufford and I think we'd all forgotten what a thoroughly enjoyable track it is. It was in great nick and there are some really interesting holes too. It's not too long, at 6036 yards off the yellows, with just one par 5, a 584yd slog, and a couple of very interesting holes among it's four par 3s (the 7th 150yds all carry across a valley and the infamous 17th from a hugely elevated tee 160yds to the green way below with a lake washing the from apron). A tip from me for the 17th is to hit your 140 yard club if the winds not doing much (I hit a 7 iron and finished on the banking at the back of the green, from where I chipped in for a surprise birdie).
To summarise, it's a great track, in good nick, with interesting holes, good staff and, at £24 on weekdays, good value too. Well worth a visit or three!

great society venue

friendly hospitable venue. staff excellent and welcoming. The course is a little bit quirky but there are some good holes particularly the 17th. Has obviously been busy since lockdown was released as there are some tired areas of fairway and tee boxes. practice range balls are very poor quality and left marks on a new set of clubs. other than that minor gripe happy to revisit in the future.
