Not well set up

Greens weren’t great and the rough was allowed to grow into what one would expect to be a fairway driving area. Not set up for expected clientele and hold ups on the course too long leading to 2 x 6 hour rounds.

Poor condition

This course is showing a lack of investment and care . The fairways are bone dry and the greens not much better. Many bunkers are full of weeds. Some greens especially on the back 9 are full of holes. Paths between holes have pot holes.

Mr

Over used course with battered tees and tired greens. The food and drink were over-priced as usual, but the worst aspect was the very poor quality food and service. Cold food, cold plates, dried up chicken or a burger. Prawn starter still frozen. Alternatively, you could enjoy the pleasure of cold vegetable soup. All in all - atrocious. If you hate food and don’t much care about the golf either, you might like the place. I will never return,

I wished I had seen the previous review before playing yesterday. The fact that when we arrived there were people looking for balls on most holes should have been a clue to the state of the fairway. The first cut of rough is way too high and if a reasonable shot strays you will spend the full 5 minutes looking for it. The fairway is also cut high with lots of dead grass cuttings stopping the ball from running. I know it is early in the year but the municiple courses in the area are far better maintained.

I never write reviews but I feel I have to warn people about this course!!
Worst course I've ever played by a mile. Fairways are like the light rough on other courses and on most holes it is bearly visible. The first rough is so long that you can bearly play out of it. Lost 4 balls all in the 'light rough' because it's so deep and impossible to find anything in them. The tees are unkept and the bunkers bearly have any sand in them. The pathways are utterly terrible. They have put so much gravel on them you can hardly move your trolley through it. Basically like what I imagine an F1 gravel trap to look like!!
The greens are shocking. Covered in debris and pitted to the point it's bearly playable.
The only good thing I have to say about this course is that if you like wildlife, there's lovely swans and geese in the lakes.
Such a shame as the course could be brilliant. Good layout and design with plenty of lakes for the visual appeal. The greens could be fun to play if they weren't so unkept.
We quit after the 10th after paying £30 for the round as it was just pointless. I've honestly played council courses that are better.
Just don't bother playing. Go elsewhere. Anywhere. I'd sooner play chip and putt than visit this place again.

Course was in poor condition and very very wet even though there had not been any rain for a few days so it must be a problem with drainage. Fairways were very boggy but the greens were ok once you got on them.

Not payed for a while on this course and nothing much has changed to improve it and there is still the problem of slow play and too many players on the course.

We walked off after 14 holes due to very slow play.

Would I play it again? No unless they sort out the condition of the course and the amount of slow play play

The course is a good design with lots of challenges. The condition of the tee boxes is very poor as are the bunkers, with lots of grass growing in them. The fairways are in good condition, the greens are very slow and your ball will bobble about, they need a lot of work to improve them. Overall the course is a good course in desperate need of some TLC.

Course should be closed until it dries out, it's actually a pretty decent course but at the moment it's like a big mud bog. If they keep letting people play while its like this, it will be totally destroyed.

course was so busy front nine took over 2 1/2 hours. started back nine but every tee box had a queue as far as the eye could see, some very slow play with no effort to hurry people up, management was very poor. Course was shabby quality, fairways very hard, greens were poor quality, doesn't live up to its "championship" tag.

What an absolute disgrace this course was! We booked online for their £15 offer and lets just say they have obviously reduced the price but service has gone out the window. As we obtained our cards from the pro shop we were warned it was "slow out there". 2 1/2 hours later we had managed to make it to 7th hole! The course was cramed with people on business courses, hacking their way around and there was not a marshall to be seen. Even two members we spoke to said it as always like this! The course is ok apart from the green, but it is run very poorly.

Take my advice there are so many better courses in this area, save your money and play elsewhere.

One of the worst courses I have ever played. It\'s almost as if nobody takes care of the greens. Scabby, patchy in August?? This is just not acceptable. The staff can tell you they were treating the greens, but it\'s not that - they are just very badly kept.\\Aside from the woeful condition, it\'s a proper learner\'s course. 5 hour round, practically everyone slapping the ball about. Not much adherence to dress codes.\\It\'s no wonder they have to Groupon the green fees all the time. Even then it\'s not worth the money.

Greens very poor condition,
Tee's badly maintained.
Front 9 fairways look liked they had not been cut for a week.
Bunkers looked like they had never been raked.
Yellow tees well forward, some on the red's ??

Played a twilight round last week, £25. Pro failed to mention that 12 of the greens had been hollow tined and 2 temporaries. Pro shop had closed by the time we had finished. Tee boxes very scruffy too.
I used to play this course regularly 3 or so years ago when they accepted Open Fairways, it's really gone downhill since then. Found myself in 7 or 8 bunkers all of which had footprints and needed raking.
Will not be returning, much better courses in the area, Caversham, Sherfield etc. which provide better conditions and value for money.

The greens were being treated and had all sand and pitch fork holes all over. There was a temporary green on the 4th that was just a hole in the fairway not even mowed to like like a temp green. For mid august the course was in a bad state. Since a few years ago this is much easier as all the long grass and rough has been taken back, and now less enjoyable.
