Nice course, not sure about the golfers

Played on a wet winters day. Course was in fantastic condition considering the weather and staff were friendly. Can?t say that for some of the golfers. Having abuse shouted across the course despite playing 18 holes in three and a half hours left a sour taste in the mouth.

Value for money

Played this course a lot this year due to being on Furlough. It?s a great course and always enjoyable apart from today?s round. Here?s my reason.....

TootHill offer a 2 week online booking in advance which is great. I took advantage of that and booked yesterday?s round 2 weeks ago. You then get a sms and email reminder of your tee time the night before your round, which is also great. I turn up yesterday with my trolly and see no trolleys are allowed, which meant I had to carry my cart bag around the course which was hard work.

My gripe is - when messaging me a reminder of my tee times, why didn?t they add a course update to say carry only! As it?s been carry only for the last few days apparently. I did speak to the staff in pro shop about this and he said it?s on our website stating carry only. But as I booked two weeks in advance I didn?t look at the website again after my booking. I asked the pro shop if they had any only carry bags to borrow and I can leave a deposit but was only offered to buy a carry bag marked up for ?99 but can buy it for ?90. Which I didn?t do as I have a carry bag but at home.

I think it be very useful if the club adds a course status on their tee time reminder message re trolleys, carry only etc...

The course is great and for ?22.50 midweek it?s great value.

Hidden gem

Cheap game of golf on a wet day but well worth it. Very slow today but still enjoyable. Really nice par 3’s over water. Tee boxes were a little waterlogged but greens were fantastic.

Great course no clubhouse

Course in very good condition but due to automated system over-booking twenty minute late in starting our societies rounds. No clubhouse so facilities poor - only one toilet available

Well worth a visit.

The view from the first tee is stunning, looking over an island par 3. The whole course is in very good condition. As a 16 handicap, I found the course challenging but not ridiculously so and the greens are very tricky with some hard to read borrows. As a senior, the round was only ?18 which I believe to be great value for money. I highly recommend playing here.

Pros - Superb short course with super fast green. Also well laid out. Fairways have irrigation. Excellent value for a premium experience.\\Cons - no bar/food facilities but teh Green Man less than 1/4 a mile away and is an excellent pub. Pitch marks on greens from casual/lazy pay and play golfers.\\Will definitely return and would be a member in a heart beat if lived closer.

Beautiful and a challenging course! One of the best courses our society has played on. Would play it all the time however I doubt if any of us will come again. We had a society day booked months in advance, agreed price, number of tees with a very large attendance then couple of weeks before are told the price has increased. This is after all our members have paid up their fees which left us in with a massive shortfall. The staff went back on what was agreed. In our view their behaviour was nothing short of a disgrace. As organisers of the society it left us in a difficult position to either stuck with the booking or seek alternate venues at a such short notice for so many people. Considering once our members knew what course was booked they must have played well over 50 rounds before the society day. With all that traffic coming their way the staff still wouldn\'t honour what was agreed. It felt like they didn\'t really want us there in the first place. As a golf society it was one of our worst day and we\'ll certainly not be going back. However Toot Hill Golf course itself is a little gem.
