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.

Played the par 3 Valley Course with my 7 year old. Course in good shape, with good tees and greens. Interesting holes and very good value. Will be back. Great place to learn to play golf and to improve your short game!

Played today very disopinted ..
Ok we have had some rain past few weeks the course was prestty much flooded and yet they still had the green keepers out cutting making the whole course muddy n soggy.. Need to invest in some good dranage ?
On top of that had to wait over an hour to tee of in a wue of around 30 golfers. They don't do tee times. This ment that as we got on every tee we had 1 or 2 groups infront of you meaning a 10/15 min wait on every shot. Over 5 hours to play 18 holes and me and my partner both play of late teens. Total joke of a day?
Course nothing special pretty plain n simple nothing to talk about
Won't be going bk anytime soon..

Excellent venue for the new/inexperienced player. For the experienced player useful for short game practice on the par 3s or a quick round.
