18 tee boxes 18 greens in a field! Yes there was a couple of nice holes but this was easily over shadowed by the fact that many of the hole were just bland and similar. Not value for money either , generous 1.5/5, hit it and find course with not enough to hurt you off the fairways.

Boring course. Back 9 better than front 9. The bacon and egg sandwich ordered after hole 9 was spot on and amazing and good value for money

I was a member at this new club it having moved from a parkland course to this in land links. It is quite a difficult course but there are a few things that let it down. The bunkers are appalling with very little sand and mainly clay in them. Some of the greens are also poor with deseased grass and un repaired pitch marks. The club house is new and very nice but has no atmosphere and unfrotunately a lot of the members are very all i can say is miserable and unwelcoming. The pro shop and staff are very good.

Still maturing course, greens and fairways in good condition. Greens very tricky and despite being in the Fens the are a few hills on the back 9.
Would play again.

One of the only courses open in the area so that is a positive. Pretty good condition considering the recent weather. Didn't see all the facilities. Look forward to playing the course when it is warmer.

St Ives - where do I begin?
This is the first time we have visited this course. The original club was formed in 1924 and moved from its very mature parkland to its new abode about 4 years ago so in all essence its a young course in every aspect. Interesting though there has been some serious designing all round, club house

I last played St Ives about just over a year ago in the late summer so it was good to be back and see how the course has progressed.
It's still a very young course and provides a challenge to golfers at all levels. When it matures it will be an excellent couse. I went round with a member and it was good to hear about the work they are doing on the course. It looked like they had added drainage to the fairways and while we were out they were in the process of upgrading the bunk on the 10th and you could see that they had done quite a few other bunkers already.
What although the fairways themselve were firm and well drained, what dissapointed was the large areas of very wet ground, often on the walk between the tee and the fairway. They could do with putting in cart paths as these areas were tricky to negotiate.
The green are challenging to read and still excellent quality apart from the 2nd which was covered in rabbit droppings.
Overall this course is well recommended and has some of the best greens around Cambridge.

played the course today on a twighlight round, with a bit of wind up, and a fair bit of sunshine, and i have to say, apart from a couple of fairways with drainage marks, and some of the greens needing a little bit of tlc(although they run very true), the course is great, really interesting layout, with some real testing holes,9 and 14 especially, and most make you think off the tee, you cant just reach straight for the driver, which given the length(i played off the yellows at 6566 yards) makes the course even tougher. good course, given a couple of year could be a blining example of this newest of course styles, the inland links. can't wait to go back.

Maturing nicely

This course continues to mature and looks fantastic at the moment. The fairways look narrow and the rough thick, but that is deceiving as the rough is light and whispy for the majority. The greens are vast and have many pin options. The practice facilities are excellent. A worth while day out.

Worth visiting

Whilst St Ives golf club was founded in the 1920's, this layout was only bought in 2007, and opened in 2010. It does however seem a lot more mature, although there is a distinct sparsity of trees. This makes the course seem quite open, but it has the advantage of making it difficult to play when the wind gets up.

Lockdown had just been eased when we played, so no rakes in bunkers, and the course was being started from the 10th tee. We didn't know this, so teed off at the 1st, and the pro-shop guy came out and we were allowed to play on, and then booked a tee time for the 10th tee. This was all very amicably arranged, and seemed to work well.

Fariways were in excellent condition, as were the greens, even though they looked like they had just been spiked, they still rolled quite true, and were a good pace, although a couple of our fourball seemed to struggle to get the pace. Although there were no rakes, we were not told the bunkers were out of play, so we played those shots, and smoothed the sand as best we could. Most seemed to be well stocked with sand, but some recent rain left one or two a little compacted. The tees were really good as well, all very flat and cut to a good level (some places have not been due to green keepers only doing the basics). The rough looks like it could swallow lots of golf balls, but it was surprisingly whispy, and therefore easy to find the wayward or wind affected shots, and to play them most of the time. There are a few ponds around which did claim a number of balls from our fourball, although I managed to finish with the same ball, which helped towards 33 stableford points (including a poor finish of 1 point at each of the last 3 holes!)

We played as guests of a member, and are aware the cost would be ?25 midweek with a member, or ?40 without.

The clubhouse seemed to be fully open, although it was a nice enough day that most people were sitting outside. The Pro-shop was closed when we were there, so can't comment on prices etc for stock.

This was my first visit to play St Ives, although I did get measured at the Titleist Fitting Centre (based there) a few years ago. Looking forward to going back again, and we're already talking about going as early as next week.

Great Inland Links

Love St Ives, a true inland links style golf course maturing all the time.

The new pond on the first is a great addition to what is already a great test of golf.
Wide open with all but 1 tree, this course can be open to the elements somewhat - so if you catch it on a windy day it can play really tough.

The improvements are being made all the time and this course will only get better.

Plays as tough in the summer as it does in the winter, but will drain well when wet.

All round a great test.
