5 reviews of Ashby Decoy Golf Club
Small but well kept greens most with borrows that keep putting tricky. The course has practice holes (no less quality) used to allow greenkeeping and general maintenance on official 1-18 holes. Fairways average but considering it's only early April more than acceptable. The course has an excellent layout with many challenging holes and plenty of par 4's are drive and long iron as opposed to drive and wedge or 9 iron which is far less challenging.
We had 6 players and lunch was simple, sandwiches and chips but these were well presented, very tasty and very efficient.
Off Course - Arguably the most friendly club I have ever visited. From the cleaner chatting with us while we were enjoying our pre start cup of coffee. The Pro in the shop was excellent advising us of the practice holes in play, the members during lunch and during our post game drink were excellent asking if we had enjoyed the day and enjoyed the course.
We used the 2-4-1 vouchers which equated to £12.50 per man for the day so £6.25 per round!!! Outstanding, who says golf is expensive.
A most enjoyable day and would recommend the course to all standards and the course will only improve during the year when the weather gets better.
We played the corse as part of a society day on the 22nd of Feb 2008. Thankfully we were blessed with a dry day though the wind did ensure that the course would play tougher than usual. I felt that the course was in excellant condition considering the recent weather. The fairways and greens were in fine condition and the course provided all players with a thorough test of there ball striking. My only criticism would be that the layout was poorly signposted which led to confusion at certain times. i am sure this is something that the staff will look to remedy. I would recommend the course to all players and the staff in the clubhouse were extremely efficient and helpful.
Played Ashby Decoy for the first time 29/06/05 for the first time using a 2 for 1 voucher - the course is superb, an excellent and challenging layout that requires you to think your way around. The condition of the course is first rate, with best greens i've played on - receptive and true rolling, the fairways are also excellent and the bunkers have plenty of fine sand in them.
18 holes during the week is only a tenner with a 2 for 1 voucher - half the price and as good as its more well known neighbour Forest Pines.
Ifound this a loverl6y coarse not to challanging but if you hit a way ward drive expect to take the punnishment beecause it is quite narrow. there are some loverly holes so it is well worth a visit.
Excellent course in lovely surroundings. Even squirrels allow you to tickle their chins!! Quite a flat course aswell so suitable for all on outings. Great par 3 16th where you have to virtually 'fly the trees' with a short iron. Good mix of holes and friendly hospitality.
