What the club says: Set in over 160 acres of quiet, secluded private grounds, the 18 hole par 72 rolling parkland course is a test for golfers of all abilities. From the moment you drive through the historic wrought iron gates into the car park, call into the well stocked Pro-shop and take the short walk through the formal gardens to the 1st tee, all of life's modern day stresses will have left you to focus on the game ahead where you will enjoy what we consider, to be the best course in the county!

Superb course

One of my all time favourite courses, and after much work being done last year, and the bunkers not being brought into play for their March Senior Open, it was an absolute pleasure to play their October Senior Open with the whole course looking great. All the new bunkers are in play and look like they were put in when the course was built - a tribute to the greenkeepers and staff who contributed to all the work carried out. Obviously it means my yardage book is now out of date, but that's a small price to pay for what is again an outstanding course. The layout is really good, although one of the players did comment that 14 par 4's and only 2 par 3's and 2 par 5's was a strange layout. We were only off the yellow tees, so not playing particularly long, and only 2 scores of 40 points, and the winning score of 43 points, so no-one "tore it up". The greens are always in good nick, although we could see that they had been spiked recently, but they had all but fully recovered - possibly a little slower than they usually are but still running very true. Loads of sand in the bunkers - a lot of which are in new positions since last year's work. The fairways showed little of the hot weather damage I've seen at other courses this summer, but we were playing 'preferred lies' on closely mown areas all the same. There was the usual Autumn problem with leaves, but that is to be expected in October. The food was good, and plenty of it, and as usual, we were very well looked after by the very friendly members and staff. Already booked for their next Senior Open in March 2019, and looking forward to it.

Lovely Course

A lovely golf course. Well laid out in a fantastic setting.
Considering the weather it was in great condition, with the greens running well.
As a few other reviews have said a lot of work has been done on the course, leaving all the bunkers currently as GUR, but it will be fantastic from May once fully opened.
The Pro & all the members were friendly & very helpful.
I look forward to playing it in the summer

Lots of work goiing on

The members have heavily invested in the course which will be great for them next year but not good for visitors now. Lots of shorter holes, a number of winter greens and lots of bunkers being dug up, filled in and moved. Their are loads of diggers and workmen all over the course.

This is one of my favourite courses, which I play at least twice a year. They are doing MAJOR work at the moment (as at October 2017), which includes moving bunkers, and altering green surrounds etc. I understand they are spending millions, and have apparently appointed course architects to design the new layouts, which I think will look fantastic when finished. Unfortunately, it meant that their Autumn Senior Open was none-qualifying, as there were 4 temporary greens and 3 temporary tees, making it poor value for the price we paid. I am looking forward to visiting in March, when the work will be finished, and hopefully all in play - at the moment, there are huge swathes of land marked GUR, where they have laid new turf to cover the areas already renovated and areas still being worked on. The only reason for the 'poor' score on course conditions is because of the work interfering with the usual very high standard of course at Wellingborough.

On first impressions I was concerned that the club would be too much me. The reason I see this is that the clubhouse is in an old Manor House and suggested it was above my station!

How wrong was I, the club members were very friendly and helpful. The staff were also very helpful.

The course was in great condition and each hole was different so held the interest. I would love to go back.

Overall really enjoyed it

One of my favourite courses and always well kept. There is ongoing work around the course (tidying up the ponds at 3 and 4 for example), but the greenkeepers always seem to keep disturbance to a minimum. Greens were a little slower than usual, but consistent, although I three putted at least 6 times! The bunkers I visited were well kept and stocked with sand. Tees and fairways in good condition. Players were moving around the course without any delays which is always helpful. It was a little disappointing that the kitchen/bar doesn't open until 11.00 as we were hoping to have a bite to eat before going out, but I have seen this at lot of clubs lately. I can only suggest that visitors check with ALL clubs as to the time they serve food from, rather than expect food service to be available. Whenever I have been able to eat at Wellingborough, it has always been good, and the surroundings do make this course special!

One of my favourite courses. Didn't do it justice, although it is never easy to play this long a course a week after it was closed due to heavy rains. No run on the ball. The course has recovered well, and this was their Senior Open, so it was very well prepared for us. Tees, fairways, bunkers and greens in very good order, the greens were a little on the slow side compared to normal for Wellingborough, but running quite true if you had the pace right. Already booked for their Autumn Senior Open event, and can't wait to come back.
