Great little course

This is my favourite course which consistes of 2 x 9-hole course one is a short course and the other a long course. Both courses are well kept with good drainage and I tend to play the short course most weeks just to keep my eye in. Staff very friendly and we have got to know them as we go regularly.

The course was in excellent condition - fairways, greens rough and bunkers. The twilight fee of £10 after 3 pm was excellent value, though the roar of the M25/M11 is a bit of a shame. The staff in the shop were very friendly and helpful - telling us to wait 10 minutes so we'd qualify for twilight fees. All in all - exceptional.

Weald Course (9 hole, Par 35). Very open course with a stream running across some holes. Couple of ponds on some holes. Extremely well maintained course that is well worth a visit. I played here on a day when my own course was closed due to the rain and it played really well.

This course is great for me as it is challenging enough for a 24 handicapp. The weald course is the longest and you play the same course twice. I did better the second time round. Good fun and a great price for the course.

A very forgiving golf course for mid-high handicappers. Particularly well kept compared to other local courses. Very short rough generally; difficult to lose balls. Narrow-mid width fairways. Holes close enough together that an out of bounds shot will often be back in bounds and playable from the adjacent fairway. Well kept greens. An enjoyable place to play.

Played the weald course twice to make give us round of 18.
Brilliant Condition. greens, fairways and rough were lush and lovley to play off. the greens were tricky to read but brilliant to put on. The Tee boxes were lovely to play off and an easy walk too. the staff were friendly and the price was good at a tenner for nine holes considering the quality the course it was great!
Even the pilon in play on one hole was a quirky feature but can understand some people not liking that very much.
will definitly be playing this course again and it does make for a quality quick round of nine, like woodford does. plus there's a nine hole par three course there too but maybe they should have added to the full holes instead because it just such a shame it's not a full 18 hole course!

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

This is a great course, always in superb condition, greens, fairways, and bunkers the only down side is it only has 9 full size holes the other course is a par 3 course although that course is in excellent condition as well, so you either play both courses as a par 62 or you play the big course twice, either way its great value, definitely worth a visit.

One 9 hole and short par 3 course

Been regular at hobbs cross for years, two courses, one a small par 3 testing your short game and one full 9 hole course.
Kept in great condition and variety of holes and a good test
Club do not allow bookings however and as such whole world descends at weekend and after work times meaning you can wait an age to tee off and pace is slow, would recommend on basis of good courses but get a booking system! Quite pricey can play an 18 locally for cheaper

Reviewed Jul 24 2020 by Miss Day - Ware - rated 1 out of 5

Not very supportive for young children

My daughter and partner drove for half an hour to play a different and new course which had great reviews and was in lovely surroundings.
On arrival they were told that my child couldn’t be caddied for by her dad (She weighs 4 stone so unable to carry her own bag for a long period of time), he had three of his own clubs in her bag so they could both play but were advised this wasn’t allowed due to COVID. Golf is a sport that is very social distanced. They have played many courses in the area since lockdown restrictions were lifted and it has never been mentioned, in fact it’s more encouraged as they can go out in their own bubble.
For an up and coming superstar, she was so upset and felt discouraged and has since said she will never ever play the course and will pass on her experiences to all at her current club and lessons.
Instead of them worrying about two family members playing on their own and sharing a bag, they should have been outside on the first tee where there was a huge queue and not much social distancing being adhered to.
She left disheartened but then drove to her regular course and done 9 holes without any fuss and shot a 33 on a par 27. Not bad for an 8 year old little girl.
