Worth a visit

A course and facility that has definitely improved over the last couple of years. What was a relatively small pro shop is now a splendid facility offering excellent, friendly service. The courses are both well maintained, if there is a weakness it is the condition of a minority of bunkers. Every hole is interesting.

Gem of a hotel and golf location in Norfolk

Played and stayed with a friend over a weekend, two courses, one being parkland and long, the other being shaped around wetlands and river, which is very easy to lose balls on! Two good tests and variety of holes, great condition. Fairways with summer heat played like glass, meaning a 300yd drive was often possible, hotel isn?t up to much, dated and empty geared to weddings I expect, but good golf venue and pro shop first class

Social golf

Firstly, I was unable to use my garmin watch as it did not recognise the course, even though my watch is up to date, only the valley course, so not too happy before I started my round. Generally I enjoyed my round, except for the five holes on the back nine which are severely punctuated with water. However, the course was not in bad order, the greens a bit slow.

Maldon 4Ball @ Wensum

We had an excellent weekend of golf at Wensum to great contrasting course. The overall facilities are excellent and they also had a couple of real ales on hand pump. If you love golf you must play the two Wensum courses.

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.
