Great Value for Money

If you don't want the pretentiousness, but do want the convenience and joy of a fun, relaxed 9 hole course then this is a great spot to come to if you live anywhere near Cheltenham / Gloucester. Cannot wait to play my first post-lockdown-3 game tomorrow. I hardly play anywhere else, and my mates love it too.. although we are rubbish. The greens are slow and play true making them forgiving, but you'll have your fun with the water and the woods. An amazing number of people I play with are caught out by the stream on the Par 5 5th hole and the Par 4 number 6. Hole 1 and 8 are your most likely Pars and 3 and 7 your most likely Birdie options. Enjoy your 7 shots on hole number 5.

Waste of time and money

Don't waste your time and money here when for the same price you have courses which are 20 times better in the local area. This course is no more than a seaside pitch and putt and would do nothing to improve your golf.

There when you need them.

We played there yesterday after we could not get a tee time at Cleeve Hill. The greens were superb, we played off the grass tees and the fairways were playable.

This is a very forgiving course with wide fairways and no sand. A few water jumps, dog legs, generally not very busy, and really well-maintained. A nice, friendly, social nine-hole course which is excellent for honing your skills without losing your balls!

Best pay and play 9hole

This course is easily one of the best 9 hole pay and play courses i've come across. The greens were surprisingly good and the staff are very friendly.

Beautiful course

Used to play on this course when I was a child, I can happily say that the level of improvement since then is impressive. The greens are a very high standard for a 9 hole pay and play, and the course in general is well kept. I’ll definitely be playing again.

Nice simple 9 hole course. Greens in good condition. Empty when we played it. Course deserves to be busier as it provides a relaxing game (without offering up much challenge)

A really nice little course, to get that swing going and practise your putting on excellent greens it's perfect, if you're a low handicapper probably not but if you're like me you just enjoy a quiet game of golf it's ideal, well worth a visit.

Simply put, the best pay and play 9 hole you will find! A little more expensive than it used to be but so much better kept now. Very well maintained, and they seem to have sorted the drainage issues on the whole. Greens are nice and some surprisingly lively. Could possibly do with some more protection to make them more difficult but you won't find better value for money! Shot 41 this afternoon.
