I didn't know what to expect, but was very pleasantly surprised.
The club has army links, but is now owned by the members.
Clubhouse is a little modest, but condition of course was all excellent.
Not the toughest of courses- it's certainly one you can score well on as there are lots of mid 300 yard holes.
But very nice indeed.
Played the course on 9th May 2013 and I would say it had a good mix of holes with some tough par 4's and par 3's The par 5's are not particularly long by modern standards though. there is plenty of room to add more yardage if they choose to though with the stand out holes being 4, 11, 16 and 17 in my opinion. Only disappointment was the condition of the tee boxes and the fairways were long given we are in May. Oddly winter rules are in place still but the greens rolled well given the rain and fact we are still well behind in terms of growth given the cold winter. Paid £25 on twilight fee and look forward to playing again end of June to see how the course has come on.
Firstly, I'm a member and have been for 10 years, the course is an excellent test of golf, if like Kevin B suggests the par 3's are too long then play at Goal farm where you will find nice short ones! The greens are always a pleasure to put on and demandbyour full attention. Having played the both courses at The Berkshire often I have never seen the similarities myself!
If you play golf in November then you cannot expect the course to be pristine, our course is in exceptional condition considering the rainfall this year.
Further to the previous review I can report that the course is in lovely condition. I played on 27 September in a Civil Service matchplay competition off the medal tees. Bearing in mind that the course had been saturated with four days of rain in was in fine fettle. The fairways were excellent and the greens were fast and true. Worth a visit.
I have played here several times over the last couple of years and it is a shame to see a course deteriorate. The fairways this year are the worst I have played on they still have winter rules and it was September , I wonder if they have replaced the green keeper as they use to be quite good. The tees are unlevel and full of divots and the greens were unusually long and bumpy , it is a shame to see what could be a good course let go so badly. I would recommend a 2 fore 1 and go and play other courses in the area which will not leave you dissapointed.
Played the Course in March 11 and thought it was excellent considering the time of year. Lots of work being done around the Course and all working seemed to benefit. A good test of ability and the need to "manage" your round.
The Members and the Clubhouse were friendly, the food was excellent as was the Hogs Back TEA.
Most of the reports are totally unfair. The Green Fee charges are lower (significantly) than the majority of courses in the area. To compare the course with the Berkshire is hardly fair - It is like comparing Butter with Marg!!! However, you pay 5/6 times more for the butter - not all players can afford to do so!
The course is indeed challenging. When Hampshire PGA held their Championships here only two pros broke par over the course of the competition.
Societies are generally highly complimentary and return year after year. Organisers seem to think our charges are very reasonable and the catering is outstanding.
The previous report is a little unfair and in all honesty a little unjust.
The green fee at £40.00 is standard for all private members courses and is probably at the lower end of costing for exclusive members courses.
The course is nothing like either of the courses at the Berkshire and does not try to be.
It is however a very nice welcoming course which whislt being easy walking is a good challenge.
It meanders through mature woodland nicely and plays all its length so ensure the mental side of your game is in tip tip order.
I played the course last summer and thoroughly enjoyed it.
IF you play as an individual expect to let two and four balls through if nessacary as the club play to exact rules - we were a fourball and there was a match being played that we had to give courtesy to - but rightly so.
I would guess the previous guy did not play well but other than the above well worth a visit. Guaranteed good day out.
Played here midweek November 06.
Basically , not as good as i was expecting considering it's at the higher end of the market green fee wise.
Traditional club & the course is easy walking & is cut through woodland.
When you arrive you can see holes from the road & it looks encouraging .The first 3 holes are promising & quite classy with similarities to The Berkshire .Although the holes carry on through woodland i found the rest of the course a bit uninspiring .
Potentially with it's setting & the tree lined nature it could have been memorable but there was something missing here for me .
Looking back there weren't any real standout holes & there was also a slight lack of variety.With it's setting there was an opportunity for some nice short par threes in the trees but instead you only get three & all of them quite long.
While it's pleasant enough , overall a triumph of style over substance.
Played this course and found it to be an excellent test of golf especially the par threes which will require mid to long irons. Rewards good golf but any balls off line look out as many trees will gladly welcome your errant shot. Course undergoing extensive draining work will be a cracker when finnished.
Course played 23/07/01; not bad condition and fairly challenging. Watch out for some strange rules about sock colours worn with shorts!
I played this course in September 1999. It is an attractive parkland/heathland course that is challenging without being overly testing. It has a gentle start (easy par 5 followed by a couple of short par 4's). Green fees were good (£36 per day) but I would not recommend that you play as a single player as the members will ask to play through! Overall though, well worth the money.
