Played tapton today 3/05/2010, this used to be my favorite course the greens have been absolutely butchred. I cant beleave what they have done i seriously think they need new green keepers. This course is not being looked after at all and it has so much potencial. The council are not checking greenkeepers work the air holes in the greens are about an inch across and 3" deep.

A Very nice location for this mature course with good views and varied holes. Staff are friendly and it is a relaxed atmosphere.
Sadly, greens had been spiked then only partially and poorly sanded with very course sand, it was like putting on an egg tray, four greens had no sand to fill holes at all leaving no consistency for putting. No advice was given about the condition and no discount was offered.

Poor course, no course information or direction to next Tees. Lots of debris on greens (leaves and rubbish). Dissapointed as SIV look after other courses so well

I used to play this course regularly but have become fed up recently. At weekend its always seems overcrowded and you wont be refused a tee time but you will be left waiting upto 15 mins at the tees to get going.

We were charged full price and told the course was fine only to find all temp tees and about four temp greens, then we were told to come back the next week and we would get to play for cheaper only when we did return the next week we were told the offer had now finished.

There is a lot of walkers on the course which i dont mind only one was walking right to where i hit my ball in the rough and just stood there (foot on my ball) until i played another nearby and when i had walked a fair bit away he bent down to get my ball and walk off in the other direction.

The greenkeeper was sat on a mower around the greens while i was having a shot on the fairway next to it. When we returned to the clubhouse for some food we were told to not even bother looking at the menu as they are not doing any more food today but when a society walked in they were all fed no problems.

The course itself on a good day offers a good challenge for any golfer and has some great holes and views.

Only personally for me one too many things have been poor and after playing here many times it will be a long while before i go back.

This course has a great layout and is very scenic.
The greens are the worst I have played on. They are bumpier than a spotty kids face.
Some of the tee boxes need sorting as well, as many are not flat.
Bunkers are like clay pits, as they don't have enough sand in them. (BEWARE OF YOUR CLUBS).
This course has the potential to be a cracker, with a bit of hard work and money being spent on it.

Nice course

The 9 hole course is a testing course for learners, just what we need to improve. On my las visit it was quite windy and parts of the course were waterlogged, course not closed often, you have to decide if the course will be playable. I would rate the course good to fair

Interesting fairway rolls

Tapton was in good condition with fairways parched, unfortunately a lot of the fairways slope left to right or vice versa so your balls are constantly in 1st cut of rough. A few of the greens looked to have holes in them possibly caused by the heat, apart from these discrepancies everything else was fine

Testing course under the conditions

Not played here for over 3 years, ground very soggy underneath, course knowledge is very underestimated especially this course, so many leaves on the greens, some are quite poor, the lads i played with were as helpful as they could be as they play it all the time, I had a few good putts, 1,9,10,11,16 and 17 but a triple bogey at the par 3 8th killed me plus a couple of double bogeys, I did enjoy it though, hilly but good exercise, very expensive on the range, £1.50 for a token which gives you about 20 balls, won't be doing that no more, will play again but probably in a few more years.
