Disappointed

Played Gatton at the end of November this year and it wasn't worth the cost of fuel to get there.
The course should not have been open as it is in a very poor condition.
The greens are the worst I have ever seen and it will take a long time to recover if it ever does but it will need some serious work and money spent on it.

Thank you for taking the time to review Gatton Manor Golf Course.

We wanted to take this opportunity to make you aware of the recent challenges we have faced with our greens and how we are dealing with them going forward and investing in
the whole course in general.

At the back end of July 2021, our greens developed a disease (which is not uncommon) and unfortunately, it was not treated correctly by our then Course Manager. We decided to recruit a complete new greenkeeping team our new Course Manager who started with us in September recognised the disease straight away and has set about controlling it to limit its spread.

We have invested in a whole new fleet of greenkeeping equipment which we expect to take delivery of in June. We appreciate that our golf course has not been presented anywhere to the level of condition and presentation synonymous with Gatton Manor. Our aim moving forward is to take the current layout including the presentation to another level.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Gatton Manor, you will see and enjoy a vast improvement in the quality of the golf course.

Course in poor condition - faded elegance

This may have been a championship standard course many moons ago. But not now. Played here a few years ago and standards have plummeted alarmingly! Tees with long grass, greens with poa annua (annual meadow grass) infestation. Bumpy greens in poor condition. Tine holes still visible with no top dressing to fill them in. Fairways with what appeared to be mole hills flattened down. Bacon bap before the round was in a very hard brioche bun. Oh and the coffee was out of a machine and luke warm. Not nice. However, the burger and chips after the game was very nice indeed.

Could be a very good course again if money is spent on it.
Tee boxes need cutting. Greens are in a terrible condition , like trying to putt on a beach.
You can see that given time and money, this would be a great course to play but not in its present state.

Great course awful condition

I want to start this by saying I ran a society day here a couple of years ago & the course was brilliant a real challenge and great layout, the greens and fairways were brilliant. Yesterday I paid ?40 to play a course that was in awful condition the greens had work done on the 3rd of April (seen on previous review) and every green was bobbly it made putting a joke you would guess pace and line in the hope it would bounce the right way. Then to the fairways to be honest it was better to miss the fairway as more chance to have some grass under the ball, they were so patchy and it got worse on the back 9. I don't know the situation with covid but have played better cheap courses, they are also the only course I know/heard that hasn't got the course in playing condition within a few weeks and they have been open for near 6 weeks that's unacceptable.

Usually great but disappointed

A great course in very poor condition. Unfortunately the pandemic has had a profoundly negative effect and the greens have just been timed and are extremely bobbly. The fairways seem quite hacked and could do with some maintenance. I love this course but was upset that for ?35 it was in such poor condition after months without being used.

Boggy hellhole

£40 is expensive to play 1st nine twice off slippery tee mats. After a wet few days, ball plugged into greens and fairways, course should not be open in this condition. Feel ripped off.

Poor

This place is in need of some TLC. The pro shop is like a tuck shop. The chipping practise area is an overgrown mess, that looks like someones back garden. There derelict buildings dotted about, all very weird. The tees are a muddy lumpy mess, the bunkers are all covered in weeds, you get the picture. For ?35 this is a very expensive joke of a course. However the bar and food were excellent.

Not good!!

Course was very untidy as no maintenance had been carried out so grass cuttings all over the course making it hard to find a ball that had just rolled off the fairway!!. Tee boxes were a joke in some places. With a bit of maintenance and care it could be a really nice course. However give t a miss until it improves.

What A Shame

First impressions count. Mens locker room had no light over the stalls and one of the three seats in the stalls was broken. The course was not good. Allowing for the hollow tining - it has to be done - green staff had dumped cores on green surrounds. 13th hole GUR had no white line and no dropzone - and anyway the green is in such a state it should be closed. 16th green front fringe is appalling - again GUR white line and drop zone needed. Most tee boxes were lumpy and tufty. I went in two bunkers and my partner four and we had to send time in all removing hefty stones before playing - why risk dinging an expensive wedge - the worst bunker being on the right hand side front of the 18th green which had little or no sand and dangerous exposed tree roots. The new owners may consider getting to grip with some if not all of this and a lot more otherwise they will lose many long-term visitors (I have been going there for over ten years).
