I\'ve always wanted to play Woodhall Spa Golf Courses , so this year we entered the spring meeting competition. The Hotchkin course was a great disappointment, the greens where very bumpy and the general condition of the course was very scruffy. The famous bunkers where what I was expecting but the sand was like builders sand. Maybe it was early in the golf season but that beggars the question why hold a tournament ( people coming from all over the UK to play) at this time of the year. It\'s ranked as one of the best courses in the UK , sorry but I could name 200 courses in the England that are better.

Decent Second Course

This is the back up course to the Hotchkin. It is supposed to be designed by Donald Steel but it is difficult to pinpoint his involvement as the course lacks identity and has he ever been back? This is a perfectly fair second course but only that. There are no signs on any hole - not even a perfunctory wooden slab with a number on it - it cannot be that expensive. The greens are the clear standout on this course with a number of swales that make approach shots important to which side of the green you hit. If there was some money spent on the course it would be a decent track but at the moment it is definitely second fiddle to the Hotchkin.

A lot of work going on so some temp holes. Weather has been bad but greens & fairways were not good at all. Shame as played this time last year & was in perfect condition.

Greens and fairways are good BUT ever so boring. They are all long holes, lots of bunkers (rock hard) and apart from the length all but short of a challenge. How this course was rated number 4 in the UK beats me, let alone under the top 100 in the world. Value for money - a big NO

Nice course to play as opposed to Hotchin. Last few holes don't live up to expectations, particularly the last its just an ordinary hole you would find on most good courses. Is it worth the money, ? try for yourself and see!

Good course

A number of us play one of the courses each year, as Clubs receive invites for Captains and Secretary. To be honest I wouldn't pay what they ask for a green fee otherwise. this year we played the Hotchkin (for some reason most of our Captains prefer this course, but I think that is purely down to reputation, so they can say they've played it). Personally I'd have preferred to play the Bracken - at my age I prefer the putting challenge rather than a long driving challenge!
A lot of work has been done on the course, removing steps down into bunkers (I saw at least one which stills needs to be done). No-one seems to rake the bunkers, and at least one which I was in was full of stones - some quite large. The greens were slower this year than I have ever experienced them, but at least they were consistent. Fairways were in very good order, as were the tees.
The starter told us some changes are being made to bring the course back to more of a heathland course, and this seemed to be reflected in the removal of some quite large trees, which seemed to allow the wind to swirl around more than usual. He also warned us that all the trouble is at the front of the greens, and this usually involved slopes taking the ball into greenside bunkers - i.e. impossible to run the ball up to the green unless you were arrow straight. The heather doesn't usually come into play unless you are short off the tee or particularly wayward.
The staff in the bar/restaurant were excellent, and we all enjoyed the breakfast, and the guys who weren't driving enjoyed the beers afterwards, and the bar prices were reasonable. Prices in the pro-shop seemed a little expensive, and for a change there was very little 'on sale'. One of our guys was hoping to get a buggy, but these were all out, so bear this in mind and pre-order if someone in your group needs one.

Played the Hotchkin course on a windy day yesterday. The course is a real test of your golfing prowess and a lot of thought is needed to plot your way round successfully. Bunkers are penal and need to be avoided if you are to score well.
The course was in great condition and really dry underfoot however I must say that the greens were a major disappointment as I expected them to be a lot quicker and less bobbly than they were.
Overall a good day but would like to return when the greens are in a better condition.

Golf gone mental, if you are higher than a 5 handicapper don't bother as it is crucify you. The bunkers, well i say bunkers they are more like beaches with vertical walls, get in any of the bunkers besides the greens and you have had it. The bunkers make the course so tough, but there are some stunning holes on it. For what it is the price is too much there are far better courses that are much cheaper.

Natural course worth experiencing.

Great course with many natural features including the heather that covers most of the course. Beware the bunkers which are very deep,and a real penalty. Beautiful greens with slight undulations.

Superb condition - great society course

The Bracken is an open and inviting parkland course, not without it's challenges but much more forgiving of mid and higher handicap golfers than the adjacent Hotchkin Course.

Unfortunate to play this on a seriously windy day - if this had been a medal, I think CSS would have made it non-qualifying. The course itself is very good, but there are considerable changes going on with lots of areas of new turf (mostly in play so no problem there). The starter told us the very deep bunkers with steps into them have got to be changed (steps removed for health and safety reasons), so slopes are being put in instead of steps. Overall, the tees, fairways, greens and bunkers were all in good condition, although it seems most players don't rake the bunkers after visiting them!
