Course is ok

The course is actually playing quite well considering how boggy the course is, greens are in such good condition compared to a few years ago and at this time of the year, too many players are still leaving pitch marks especially on the par 3 6th, a good little course for the price. Considering the course conditions I had a good round and my mate Nigel played well also.

Course is looking good

Played 2 rounds of 9, first 9 not too good but pleased with the second 9, scored 45 and 41, the greens are so much better than ever before, Neil your a genius, I would still like to see the post markers for 100 and 150 mtrs, it would be so much easier to see them, the ones on the floor are not so visible, luckily I have got a rangefinder, no point in practicing and learning your distances if you can't see how far away you are, a big thanks too all really, course is becoming a little gem.

Good to report Barlborough continues to dramatically improve under the new management team
Latest addition is a new reception and cafe facility which is due to open soon and will be a most welcome improvement.
Course is looking better and better, greens much improved on previous years, and drainage, an age old problem, is now improving as work is completed.
Just a review of the bunkering and some tidying of the tees and detailing should see Barlborough back to its original condition, and it's good to see the club getting busier and receiving some support from the Derbyshire golfing community.
Let's hope it's the start of better times for golf in Barlborough.

i teed off at 1835 the weather was very good, a slight breeze, played with 3 other lads who were on par with my handicap, it wasnt my best game but the course was in very good condition, a very enjoyable evening, only used my driver twice and it felt ok but i played better driving off with my 5 wood, not so far but definately straighter. my short game was also quite good, need to practice more with my new putter, it doesnt feel quite right yet, missing a few short puts.

what a beautiful day, 3rd hole really got me, sliced drive, not happy with that, on the green in 2 on par 5 4 and birdied, this 9 hole course is not that difficult and the greens are superb, not so much testing or undulating but the condition ofthem is fantastic, a lovely day.

a very nice course when the weather permits, the greens are kept very well and the price is reasonable, friendly staff, the course itself is not too tricky as the fairways are quite wide, will be so much better when they acquire the land to make it an 18 holer.

for a small 9 hole course the greens and fairways are kept very well
unfortunatly the club house burnt down last year and they have not yet had a replacement built so facilities are a bit low other wise a very nice course to play and very easy to get to

excellent little 9 holer,good course for high handicap golfers,plenty of leeway for off fairway shots,except for the 9th over a fishing lake.
Pays well all weathers,unfortunatley due to arson they have no clubhouse at the moment,but fot the price its better to have 9 holes here than hit a basket of balls on the driving range,which they do have.

Lovely weather

Ground very boggy but then that’s to be expected, greens are fast and getting better after the disease, all in all a pleasant round, I’m sure within the next few weeks once the ground has dried up the course will be back to its best, according to the app I use the 150 markers on some of the holes are as much as 20 yards out.

New Ownership.

This has been my local course since I could first hold a club however I'd never shout about it being my favourite course for a few reasons. However the course is now under new ownership and I couldn't imagine better people for it! They've improved the course no end already and from what they have been promising it's going to just keep getting better. Lovely people too.
The only major downside at the minute is the fact there is no clubhouse (due to a fire a few years back).

Things moving in the right direction finally at Barlborough, and it's nice to see the new owners investing to improve facilities and smarten up what had always been a little gem of a nine holer.
Sadly the course does seem to attract a few people who seem to struggle with pace of play issues, sharing a bag of clubs is a common sight there, as are single players dawdling along playing more than one ball.
Playing through seems to be a foreign concept, and as the club gets busier as it improves, I would imagine the management will have to take measures to address these, and one or two on course safety issues.
This said, good luck to Barlborough golf club, it's good to see a local course on the up for a change.
