Huge wide fairways, big track but very dull. good condition, exellent for big hitters. worth £15.00? I'd say no
To set the scene, we play off between 17-25, so please note this review is not aimed at very low-handicap golfing purists (apologies to scratch members of the club). We've played Boysnope 3 times now and have enjoyed each occasion, all of us pretty much playing to handicap, because this is a fair course, with plenty of width to allow for off-centre tee shots, obvious hazards (apart from the 1st - more later) and big decent honest greens. It's flat and easy-going and will reward good shotmaking and course management so, if you're looking to build your confidence by shooting a good score, playing Boysnope will do the trick. Despite a soggy winter, the fairways and greens were in good nick and it was unfortunate that playing from tee mats detracted from the hard work the greenkeepers had put into the rest of the course. A few bobbly greens were inevitable but overall this is a great value, easy going course that will challenge your game without punishing you unfairly. If you're a low-handicapper, you may not find the course too challenging but I'm sure some will disagree. Two pieces of advice - first, warm up on their range (it'll pay dividends), second buy a strokesaver and look at the plan of the first hole carefully. On paper, a 400yd par4 sounds straightforward enough, but anything other than a long high draw off the tee will be swallowed by a pond at about 180-200yds. If (like me) you decide to play up short, you've another 120yd carry over a big water-filled ditch before the final 100yds to the green. Walk off this 1st hole with a point or two and know you've done a good job. The rest of the course's hazards are in plain sight so you can go on from here and enjoy your round. Although we didnt eat there, the clubhouse was full so it looks a very popular place for food & drink. Friendly reception staff and members so, at £17 its a great venue and well be returning in the not too distant future.
I have played this course regular every weekend with my brother alan, I remember when it was 9 holes and then the full 18. I was first to ace the par 3 10th accross the pond with a crisp struck 7 iron. my best score is 82 off scratch and 80 off scratch on winter greens.
The staff are very friendly and polite and they make you very welcome inside the clubhouse.
excellent facilities, good food and refreshments.
I play this course most weeks during the summer with a group of lads. Oor handicaps range from 17 to 22. The course is flat and quite forgiving so it suits us. Overall the course is a good challenge for the beginner or high handicapper. As others have said the staff are really friendly and the clubhouse is very good, but to move on the course needs some work. Pitch marks can be found on most greens and the bunkers are never raked. The tees take a hammering and need additional ones to rest the originals. I would recommend you give it a go but booking is required.
1st impressions are very good as there are excellent practice facilities (driving range and seperate putting and chipping area) plus the clubhouse looks brand new. The cost was £16.80 for 18 holes on a sunday in mid summer which I think is very good.
The course itself has good and bad points. It is the flattest I have ever played and the fairways were excellent, but overall it was a bit on the featureless side. What bunkers there were were not raked, the greens had lots of unrepaired pitch marks and the tees were very poor. However, if I'd played well I might be more complimentary so I'd like to have another go at it in a month or so.
To make it a very good course they would just need to put in some more greenside bunkers, issue everyone with a pitch mark repairer with their scorecards and build some new tees so they can rest the current ones long enough to recover.
Finally my last bit of advice is that you should play it but under no circumstances trust the 150 yard markers, in good conditions I hit everything from a 9 iron to a 5 iron from varying 150 markers! Oh and watch out for the most severe dog leg I've ever seen on the 18th.
This is a challenging course for beginner & high handicap player. The green fees of £13 for 18 holes are very reasonable considering the high quality of the course. The staff are very friendly and the new club house a treat to spend time in after a round. Would recommend this course to anyone.
SUPERB, a strong word but well worth it, you are greeted by a brand new clubhouse that looks excellent, although not the biggest.
There is also a high quality (although not the cheapest) driving range, plus a chipping practice area.
The course is a fairly long one, over 7000yards, with some cleverly placed ditches and water, and it in superb condition, while relatively new (reclaimed farmland), the trees are just beginning to become established and in years to come will give the course more character.
It is easy walking with most holes flat, and the fairways are of generous size, though some holes require good course management.
The greens are mostly in exceptional condition all year round, and the groundstaff can often be seen putting work into maintaining the course.
Booking at weekends is a must as this course is becoming ever more popular and tee times are quickly taken.
Highly recommended, although you may take my tee time.
Definately as good as some of the more expensive clubs in this area and well worth a visit.
See you there.
Went on a Sunday morning on the off chance after being badly let down by an exclusive hotel and country club nearby. Staff were friendly and made every effort to accommodate us in a busy schedule. The course itself was in great condition considering the amount of rainfall during the previous fortnight and provided a good challenge. The course, and its trees, are only young and its character should improve year on year. Lovely new clubhouse with good facilities and great food. Overall, enjoyable day and far better value for money than if we'd not been let down by the "exclusive" club a couple of miles down the road!!
i have just started playing at boysnope and being a high handicap player i find the coures very testing.the staff at boysnope are frindly and make you feel welcome,the clubhouse is brand new and the food is excellent and i would say very well priced.all in all a very nice place to play golf.
Good test at this relativly new course. Lot harder now the free drops out of the plantations have ceased. Still can't understand why the par 5 on the back 9 is stroke 1. The next par 4 is by far the hardest hole on the course with the stream around the front of the green - always two good hits into the wind. Will be a cracking course in the near future when the trees have grown and the new clubhouse should be open for spring 2004.
It's a challenging course for the high handicap players like myself, but probably a bit too easy for the low handicappers. You can afford to be a little wayward off the tee with the free drops away from the new plantations helping a little. It's quite flat with a limited number of hazards, but the sheer length of the course easily makes the course a good test of your game. The greens are in great condition for a Municipal course (probably the best Muni greens in the North West). Great value at £12 a round and well worth a visit and a decent driving range next door which is much cheaper than the one at the Trafford Centre!
I have just started playing at Boysnope and i find the course chalenging and the holes with plenty of variety. The greens are in excellent condition ( congratulations to the ground staff) once the trees that have been planted get a bit more growth the course will be tremendous. I have found the staff very friendly and i look forward to plenty of golf there .Bill Smart
The Course is in fairly good condition. First Tee is noisy due to the main road at the side of the tee. Greens are in good condition. Clubhouse is fairly limited. Staff are not friendly and you have to be ready for inspection once you have paid. Buggies are available to rent for £12 per round.Green Fees are reasonable. I would not advise play in rain or wind, as the course is very open.
