Good golf course

Had a good day at a Wensum Valley Golf course on Friday. The greens were in good condition. The fairways were also pretty good. All the bunkers had plenty of sand in them. Which is not the case on some courses!

Great Condition despite all the rain!

The Valley course drains well and is in superb condition. The greens are smooth and this week are like putting on glass a light touch and the ball glides to the hole!

Easiest course of the 2 hotel courses. When we played, the greens had been hollow tined, so the grass was also left quite long, which made them slow. Just as well really as there were some wicked slopes which made putting very difficult, although I'm sure they would get easier if played regularly. The greens in general were also massive, so you could hit them in regulation and still be 30 or 40 yards from the pins. Sand in the bunkers seems to be like very fine gravel, but they played really well, and there was plenty of sand to play some really telling shots fairly easily. One or two fairways very a little rough, looking like they had suffered with the hot weather over the summer, but all in all the course was in acceptable condition. There are at least 3 driveable par 4's, including the opening hole, although when we played it, both days the wind was against on the first. We stayed at the hotel, and the food an drink was good and reasonably priced for a hotel. Food was good, although I did hear one comment that the food served in the bar was better than the food we had in the restaurant, which did seem to take too long to be served. At least a couple of people missed out on breakfast to be sure of getting to their tee time, because their order had not appeared.

Good greens

If the greens were not as good as they were, I would say the course is pretty poor and quite easy, with most holes having left to right undulation and level greens, so you could even put from 50 yards out.

Played here twice recently after a lengthy spell without a visit. The Pro Shop is all new and must be one of the best stocked in North Norfolk now, a substantial improvement. the "Valley" course which I played both times continues to offer an enjoyable parkland golf experience. The fairways have suffered from last years very dry conditions and will benefit from an extended spell of warm and wet growing conditions. We played lift and place to provide sensible lies. Greens and bunkers were excellent.

Simple parkland course. Still suffering from last years drought. Fairways threadbare and large parts were quite bad. Almost worthy of GU. Greens fluffy, dry and slow.

Great golf complex with 2 really good challenging courses. Valley course is slightly easier to negotiate than the Wensum. Come here for 3 days once a year. and really enjoy it.

A very dry course when the ball ran and ran. Several of the former bankers have been filled in and the repairs have not had chance to fully mend I suspect due to the very hot summer we are having

Fantastic course worth visiting

Played both the Valley and Wensum courses staying overnight in the hotel. Both courses tough, but "water" holes on back 9 of Wensum particularly challenging. Hotel accommodation and food extremely good. Staff excellent. A fantastic two days at a VERY reasonable package price. Will CERTAINLY be back with my local society.
