Most Helpful Review

Great course with a truly great atmosphere. Played in November and the greens were fast a true, not a bobble in any of them. Layout was great and every hole was a challenge. Condition can't be faulted not a blade of grass out of place. To the person who complained about the routing, don't be cheap and buy a course planner!!! - Nov 28 2011

Middle of the Road
In the Middle of Nowhere but I’d heard a fair bit about it, course played really short, I know it’s running miles but even so it’s a short track, couple of nice holes but most very average, flew round hardly a golfer to be seen, not sure how it’s the top of the Midlands

Exceptional
In a wilderness on brown burnt off courses Astbury is like an oasis, I couldn’t believe the course conditions, it’s amazing. This has to be the finest course for its money within 50 miles
To the previous reviewer, if you have never liked it why play again? Sounds like you have an axe to grind

Excellent
Played last September and upon return it’s just as good, greens fast and true, and fairways are like carpets. Excellent value for money and feels like it should cost more to play

Had been looking forward to playing here again after I last played there last year. Unfortunately it feels like the club hasn't quite recovered from going into administration. The course itself wasn't the same as last time. Needed a mowing all over. There were daisies growing on one fairway. The greens were decent bit I've known them better. I'll put that down to the heavy rain yesterday.
The club just lacks atmosphere. There can't have been more than 5 groups on the entire course which for a bank holiday would concern me as an owner. But for us made it like millionaires golf. Good deal with tee off times but definitely wouldn't pay the 45 pounds booking direct.

Astbury reopens
The Course has reopened after a period of administration, course excellent and beautifully manicured as always, not busy when we played but I expect as soon as the word of mouth gets around it will be busy again. Cannot fault Course or service

Course in process of re-opening, so no hospitality facilities available. That said, the course was in excellent condition and there were very few other players on the course.

WOW!!!!
Top notch course!! From the moment we arrived we were shown to the 1st tee, the pace of play was excellent, extremely well manicured and greens to test the best! If you go slightly array the rough isn't too bad to get out of so that is a massive plus for a high handicapper. the course layout is excellent with buggy paths guiding you to the next tee so your never really asking the question where do i go next! overall i have to say it is the best golf i have played on ever!!! the only slight downside if there is one, and I'm being picky here is that there are no ball cleaners around the course. I will be back again and soon, and again and again and again.............

You Gotta Play This.
This is one amazing golf course. Not only is it a fantastic course to play it is also very scenic as you play amongst the Deer who are grazing just feet away. Some very challenging golf holes one of which I have to say is the Par 3 18th. too may positive points to put up here, but if you love golf then this has to be one to put on the Bucket List.
