Nice course - looked a bit tired

I've played here many times over the years and this is the first where I felt that the course was not at it's best. The greens had recently been spiked making putting a bit challenging - shame as it's normally a good afternoon out. Plus everyone was backed up so adding to the frustration.

sunday saver weekend

As part of a group of twelve I played both courses at stoke by nayland on a Sunday saver package and both courses were in very similar condition which was very poor, in fairness although the week we played had been very dry the week before had rained each day never the less the greens were atrocious, the fairways unrecognisable and the condition of both courses very poor. T.he hotel was very good as was the food and bar prices reasonable

Needs work - Disappointing

Played here a few years ago and remember it being very good. Not any more. Probably 16 holes off of temporary tees. Despite these being set in tee boxes that looked perfectly playable. Greens that were patchy and inconsistent. Fairways and surrounds that were scruffy. We were here for two days and didn't see a single green keeper / worker. This course needs work done on it. It's still an interesting layout but severly let down by its condition.

Great test of golf

Difficult to find but worth it. Played Gainsborough and it did not disappoint. Easy opening hole but number 2 was a brute. Very scenic with great greens and undulating fairways. Overpriced but with half price voucher it was worth it.

Not at its best

Condition of course left a lot to be desired. Greens in particular were inconsistent and rough. Too many blind shots either from tee or from fairway.

Food was poor. Roast beef as tough as old boots and one of the cheeses offered was rancid.

People friendly. Room facilities were good. Just a shame about the condition of the course.

Fantastic course

Gorgeous evening and course in amazing condition considering recent dry weather. £25 for a twilight round is still very good value. A hilly course with some tough holes. Wide fairways allow for a forgiving drive but some over water or have a dog-leg making you think about your second shot. Approach is again often well protected with bunkers or water. Nice big and well looked after greens with lots of challenges. A fantastic course to play.

Slow play and poor greens, disappointing

A good friend is a member and he hosted a three ball yesterday, it took 5 & 1/4 hours! We were behind a number of 4 balls, who had stayed at the hotel, and clearly they had preference over club members, that cannot be right? We had to wait to play EVERY shot and spoke to the two lady members at each tee box! They were in a competition and yet the 4 balls in front took preference and an age to play their golf.
