Disappointing Weekends Golf

Booked to play both course over the weekend.....unfortunately there had been a lot of rain which is out of anyones control. On asking in the club shop how the course was playing, he responded with "its a bit wet in places but still playing well" I asked for recommendation for some nearest the pins for our society on the Valley Course that we played on the Saturday which he recommended. On heading out to the course we were faced with 15 temp greens that he hadn't mentioned! The temp greens were just a rough patch of bumpy grass and mud. It was also often hard to tell what was fairway and what was the rough at times. For the temp greens a bit of care in roping these off from trolleys / buggies when not in use would protect them and give a better experience when they do have to be used..... Also buggies not allowed, again fine due to the weather, but when 2 members off the group who struggle to walked round asked about trolleys they were told, yes we have plenty, come and get one before you tee off......only to find out they then had non left when they went to get them....if a group has reserved buggies....maybe they could check with the group if they need trollies instead.....this resulted in one of our group not being able to play the full 18 and not being able to play at all on the Sunday due to a bad back. On the Sunday we played the Wensum....all greens in play and the course played well despite the rain and wind. Both days the first group had to carry the nearest pins and longest driver markers with them and the club shop wouldn't take them out for us.......As a society I wouldn't not return as there is no care and attention to make it a great golfing weekend that we have had elsewhere.....The hotel staff though were attentive in the evening and the food was good.

Greens are shocking. Stay away. When we booked for a whole weekend we were not informed of the greens, nor when we arrived or even when we tee'd off.

Only good thing is the bar and pool/snooker room.

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.

We'll start with the good......
1. The scenery is out of this world, you really couldn't wish for a better setting for a parkland golf course.
2. The food is fantastic, very reasonably priced and can be washed down with a selection of lagers and local ales.
3. The staff are faultless, they will help you any way they can.

Now unfortunately golf is the main reason for visiting Wensum Valley and its here it really lets itself down. I have played most of the courses in Norfolk and can honestly say this is the worst maintained golf course I have played. The bunkers are a joke, there are an abundance of stones in them, sand sand in them varies from ankle deep to non existent and they general look untidy. The fairways are acceptable although are a little bit patchy. The greens are atrocious, they are bumpy and the grass is so long on them it is beginning to seed. They will make a good putter look average at best!
It really is a shame that the course it left under maintained as it could be a fantastic facility.

Played Wensum Course. The greens furtherest from the club house were dreadful with bare patches and tufted bits. Putting was a lottery on these greens. On one green my approach shot hit one of the bare patches and took the top off - Shane Warne would have licked his lips at the thought of bowling on that sort of surface.

The course is spectacular with great views and some interesting and challenging holes.

Just a shame they can't abstract some water from the many water hazards to keep the greens in better nick. I think they will take quite some time to recover.

Round was 25 including a bar meal.

Wettest golf ever

Because of Covid 19 our golf holiday to Portugal was cancelled. We ended up at Wensum. I bet the course would have been really good if we hadn't chosen the wettest days ever to play 4 rounds there, 2 on each course. Hotel was ok but with limited entertainment. The food was very good and the staff were all very nice and friendly. Rooms were adequate but very basic.

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.

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.
