Very tight course

A very tight tree lined on most holes course. Great to find in the middle of a town.

A ?tree-mendous course, the fairways and greens are in good shape. It?s very woody but if you?re straight is you?ll be ok.

Mr Martin Strang

I have been playing at Vivary golf for a few years now and it’s a great place.\\\\Since appointing Andrew as the resident professional it has got even better!\\\\Andrew and Sue always make you feel welcome and nothing is too much trouble.\\\\Andrew taught myself and my wife when we started playing at Long Sutton and all I can say is their loss is Vivary parks gain!

Nice course in central Taunton

For someone returning to golf after a long break (30+yrs) l found Vivary Park a good course, which suited me, as I?d categorise me as a beginner again. The receptionist was very helpful and welcoming, as were the players on course when l missed the sign directing you from the fourth green to the fifth tee

A very tight course

Ideally placed in the town centre,the course could do with a bit of sorting out, some of the areas around the greens need some attention. On the whole good value for money.

Vivary Golf Course is an excellent find, based in the actual town center of Taunton, its course is tight and suits the med/low handicapper, however if you want a challenge, the vast amount of trees offer this in heaps. all in all a great location, good course and very good and reasonable priced bar food and drinks.

Very Tight Course

A good course in the middle of the town, very tight tree lined course. Spoilt only by being held up by a group of ladies who had no intention of letting a faster group play through. We ended up sitting down waiting a good 5 mins or more with 2 other groups waiting behind us. Perhaps someone could have a word and explain the letting through rule to them

Overpriced

Course was not particularly well maintained - fairways looked like they hadn?t seen a mower in a while.
Quite short, albeit tight - if you?re confident with your long irons though shouldn?t be much of a challenge. The two par 5s are very reachable in 2.
Greens are reasonably interesting however, although not very fast.

Only 3 of thirty professional golfers (including 3 EU tour players) managed to break par at the last pro-am held at Vivary. Says a lot for the challenge.

Vivary is a very compact course with many trees on all fairways, makes you play a straighter game (I wish). More par 3's then par 5's, but well worth a visit.
