I played SWGC YESTERDAY 17/9/18 ok a honest opinion. Friendly staff in pro shop and bar. Now the course a lot of blind shots which makes it hard the greens not at there best and ongoing work so had to judge. But I’d like to play the course when all done the greens were slow but there are some nice looking golf holes think I would go back and and play. But the starter was a great character and very cheerful thanks.

stunning course

Course was in excellent condition, greens immaculate and a tough test. £17 twighlight is excellent value for money & the groundsman is a top man he even took the time out to speak to me personally.

Lovely course

A great setting with beautiful views of church and countryside. Hilly; an electric trolley is a real bonus. Excellent condition after so much rain. Greens good though a little variable on our day. The 17th - 18th ending is odd and a little disappointing.

Very nice course in top condition, with some stunning holes & views! Praise has to go the groundsman! Few new bunkers have been put in to adding to the quality of the course.

Golfshake Team ReviewSolid golf course with excellent facilities and in immaculate condition.
Greens as pure as you like but very hard to read subtle breaks.
Some holes need to be thought about as driver is not the club but some holes do offer the chance to open up a bit.
Excellent par 3's with stunning views.

The Walden course is of a very high standard and sets a challenge for both the low and high handicap golfer. The club house, staff and facilities are of an equally high standard. I would recommend a vsit to this course set on the outskirts of this historical market town.

Too expensive for visitors and guests but classy course these days. Poor old George Osbourne is trying to manage inflation in the economy and this course has not helped.

The course was great considering that here has been rain over the last 2 days also it was very windy 40 mph and the greens were very quick especially for winter. Clubhouse shut due to renovation which is being completed by the end of next week.
