What the club says: The Valley Course (9 Hole par 27)

This 9 Hole par 3 course is without question one of the best designed and maintained in the country. Lakes, bunkers, streams and mature trees provide an interesting and fun layout. It is a great place to start to learn the game, but also a challenge to the experienced golfer.

The Weald Course (9 hole par 35)

Top professionals play here because it's so good - so do us lesser golfers as well.

A great course with some great holes. You'll want to play it again and again - always the sign of a good course. There is a good balance of holes, some long, some short, but testing all parts of your game and making you think.

Great course

Lovely well kept course. Great practice facilities too. Pat 3 is a lovely little course great for beginners and the Weald is a nice but still challenging course.

Great condition, shames it's not 18 holes

This course which has a main 9 hole course and a Par 3 is in outstanding condition and has been all winter. Possibly the best putting surfaces for miles around and an interesting course. Don't let the fact that it's 9 holes put you off, you can always play twice, but even so if all you have time for is 9 holes you can do no better than go here. Two tricky par 3's, a tricky par 5, a par 4 that only the longest accurate hitters will reach in regulation matched with excellent greens means you'll enjoy this.

Super course

9 hole par 3 plus 9 hole par 4 course, in picturesque setting, and kept in super condition. When many other local courses are closed for a few weeks in winter due to drainage issues, this one stays open. It's drainage is great.
Good golf range and putting green, and excellent Golf Pro/Coach in Mike Leitch.

very good little course ideal for the beginner, or if your looking to practice. A very good par 3 course with some challenging holes and also a good 35 par 9 hole course. Greens are in excellent condition would definitely recommend this course to anyone

I played both the Weald and Valley courses a number of times and they are kept in reasonable condition.

I was left extremely dissapointed by the service I received recently however. I was looking to play the Par 3 with my partner who was just due to walk the course with me. I was advised that "due to insurance" I would not be able to play alone and have a guest join me without paying. I felt this was a little harsh but accepted this and offered to pay for 2 even though the other person was not actually playing. It turn out his wasn't acceptable now. I was told she could play and they will rent clothing and clubs. I made it clear that she isn't playing but just joining me on the Par 3 course and that by paying for 2 people surely I had covered the insurance issue. I said that if it was important that she plays then she could use my clubs anyway. They said this would slow everyone down. Correct but she had no intention in playing and if she did she would definitely slow the play down!

It was abundantly clear to me that this was about money. The insurance issue was resolved when I reluctantly offered to pay for both. They wanted the extra for the renting of clubs/clothes. This is very dissapointing as I have used the place a number of times and expected a bit more of a reasonable discussion and found the staff to be overly pedantic here. "We don't make the rules, we implement them". Computer says no mentality. Needless to say I won't be returning and I'll be suggesting to my local friends and family not to go to Hobbs Cross.

As a final point, how many people does it take to work a till? 2 men at Hobbs Cross.
