A lot better than when I last played there!

The course holes are really good challenging enough for a public course. Fairways are maintained well, the greens were in a better condition this time not the best but playable, the Tee boxes are the biggest let down they are in very poor state which is a shame, the size of them they could be halved so one half is in play while the other side is repaired just a thought.

OK Course

Course is OK very flat and open no real hazards. Greens were slow and grass quite long. Fairways cut long, tees in not very good condition.

Best round of golf I have ever had. +4 on the back nine. Chipping let me down on three holes. Probably lost me 6 shots! Green were awful. Dreadfully slow

Worth playing, nice layout and great staff

Waterstock is well worth playing.It's easy to get to with a nice layout.
Greens are large with nice shape, most rolled well.
They are plenty of trees, penalty areas and bunkers to trap a wayward shot.
Tees weren't very good unfortunately and some areas were very muddy.
The clubhouse isn't the greatest but we were made very welcome by the staff and food/drink was very good.
I would play again for sure.

Sandy tee boxes

The fairways and greens were in good condition, especially after the recent rain. Really let down by the tee boxes. Some interesting and challenging holes. Conveniently located just off the M40 which is a bonus.

Fair course

Lived locally for years but never managed to visit untill recently.Would not say it is a well kept course but lay out is ok..There is a brook that runs right through the course and is not easy to get over.Lots of trees and bunkers as well to keep you in check.Ignore the water in waterstock as there ain't any other than the brook/ditch.Tee boxes are awful and greens not the best but it's good value if you can get on at reduced price.

Good course

As a beginner golfer course was challenging but there was good opportunities to score well on some of the holes, only downside play was very slow on the course, however overall a very enjoyable round of golf

Great course, pros, staff, food and drink

Lovely course with some great holes. Excellent condition considering the weather we have had. True greens lovely fairways and good tee boxes. The food in the clubhouse is excellent value for money, large portions and very nice. The staff are polite and courteous and always there to help. Kieran and Paul in the pro shop are great instructors. The par 3 course is a great way to warm up before a round or you can try the Driving range which
is a is very good too. You have a top100 course just next door and you often get members from there popping in for a round. Says it all. If I lived 20miles from here I would definitely be a member.

First visit to Waterstock. Got a good deal as the course was very wet in places, but a good test in the conditions. Some testing holes. Quite wide fairways that allow for a mis-hit shot no to be servely punished. The course has a decent driving range on-site. The only thing Waterstock lacks is a decent clubhouse. At present ther are 2 portacabin type buildings linked together, which doesn't look to appealing. The hospitality and food though were very good. I'll visit again in the summer when the conditions should be better.

A cheap quick round

A nice course design let down a little by the condition of the course, particularly the greens, we must have repaired 4-5 pitch marks per hole!! Could be a really nice course with some investment, but if you want a quick hassle free round you could do much worse.
