7 reviews of Barnehurst Public Pay and Play Golf Course
Barnehurst is a great course tricky for beginners, but great if you can play a short course. Very informative staff that will point you in the right direction, you will need to look at your maps cause the greens a bit diffcult to find. Good bar with freindly cheery staff,
they do a great club sandwich
Just played course for the first time and was pleasantly surprised for a council run course. It had rained heavily all day, but the course and the greens seem to drain well. From what I could tell there are rakes in all bunkers, but the sand is quite thin and there are numerous stones (in the few bunkers I found). A good challenge for the average weekend golfer, with well place trees and bunkers. The 5th/14th is tough with a long carry between trees to the fairway. Could maybe do with being a little longer. Staff were helpful and friendly.
A perfect 9 hole course for beginners, made up mainly of shortish par 4's with half the course being quite wide and open while the middle holes bring more hills and woodland into play. Well placed bunkers leave you with lots of decisions to make while the greens can be quite tricky, making this not only ideal for beginners but anyone wanting a bit of cheap practice.
Is usually in decent condition though there are no rakes in bunkers, possibly due to local kids though I've never seen these cause any problems.
Decent enough facilities and a nice bar, could maybe just do with a proper Pro's shop.
Only bad thing that because it is aimed at beginners, you do often get caught behind hackers who don't know what playing through is.
Brilliant course for the beginner, also helped me with my game played my first ever 9 holes there, my first impression loved the course, im still in love with it, and im sorry for hitting the tree on the first with my club bad tee shot so sorry to the tree
JUST PLAYED THE COURSE TODAY ( 10-02-03 ) AND EVEN THOUGH IT HAD RAINED DAY OR SO EARLIER THE COURSE PLAYED WELL (UNLIKE ME ), WAS RECOMMENDED COURSE BY FRIEND BECAUSE OF OPEN FAIRWAYS (GOOD FOR A LEARNER )..HOLES 2..3..7..8..PLAYED WELL...I ALSO BIRDIED THE 6th. LIVE LOCALLY SO WILL BE MAKING IT MY FIRST STOP FOR A GAME OF GOLF..!!!
This course represents very good value for money. It is inexpensive and is reasonably well kept. The bunkers and the directions around the course being down points, but more importantly the fairways and greens are good. Hole 3 used to be a par 4 (until a nearby resident's has his roof hit too many times!), but is now a par 3 (new cards I was told are being printed). Hole 8 is excellent; fairly long with a difficult sloping green. Hole 5 is also quite testing as you have to get your tee shot over a fair dip and trees to reach the fairway. Overall I would say this is a particularly good course for beginners and for those wishing to keep their swing going. The first time you play it, get hold of a map around the course.
Played on Saturday 25th September 1999 even after severe downpours and heavy rain the course still played very well. The greens were superb considering the amount of rain they must have consumed.
An excellent course and a definate challenge for any serious player. Plenty of bunkers make it an enjoyable round of golf.
