10 reviews of Bramcote Water Golf Course
A good 9 hole course that suits all levels. The course is well maintained with frequent changes to tee positioning to mix things up from seaon to season.
Greens well maintained and the green on 9th particularly interesting with its significant slope. 9th tee off adjoins the motorway and is noisy.
The 5th is a brilliant Par 3 water hole that never ceases to chalenge. The green is very well planned on that one.
The 1st,2nd,7th are good dog leg par 4s. The 4th is a long straight going up and down hill. The 8th is a real teaser around the waters with the green in sight from the tee although I've never managed to get on it 1st time yet. The 3rd is a short par 3 and the 6th is a shortish par 4 uphill.
Not bad value for money and never fails to provide an interesting round.
Bramcote is a nice course and could be very nice with a few tweaks. A test of control rather than distance.
Some of the greens are well kept while others have the odd weed and pot hole. Off the fairway is a good mix of long grasses, trees and shubs.
Course can be confusing as each hole has two tees (for those playing 18) and in many cases the yardage markers on the tee does not match the card given out at the pro shop.
Bramcote is a bit on the short side for me. i could only really unleash the driver on 3/4 of the holes.
Nice course, fairways always excellent condition with a good variety of holes.
Downsides: Very prone to waterlogging when in winter/after heavy rain. Bobbly greens, shame really, with a bit of extra rolling they would be great.
A hidden gem!
For a newish player with a high (hopefully diminishing) handicap, this course offers a chance to recognise and use all of the clubs in the bag, with minimal demand for a driver.
Pleasing on the eye, don't be put off by first impressions. From the car park you could easily be mislead.
What awaits both beyond the first tee and within the portacabins forming the clubhouse and shop, is a friendly and welcoming establishment, together with a green and rolling short course.
Set amidst fishing lakes, with carp rolling, and those mystical water magnets grabbing at everything (particularly the 5th, 7th and 8th), this is a cracking 9 holer and a great endorsement for short courses demanding good course management skills.
A warm and welcoming staff round off the occasion. Give it a go!
My first time of playing Bramcote has left me with mixed feelings. I enjoyed the challenge of some of the holes although most of them felt a little under designed. The bunkers where left unraked and unkept and the signage from hole to hole left my four ball wandering around the course like plonkers!
When we finished the course, around 7:45 pm and went to have a drink in the clubhouse we were told that it was shut - so no pint for us.
Maybe we just hit the course at a bad time, but we all felt a little disapointed by our time at Bramcote Waters.
played today 13/9/06
a nine hole course that offers somthing for every player no matter what level of play.
This course has 3 par 3's and 6 par 4's ,only one of which you realy need a driver from the tee.
dont let this fool you mind, because if you are not on target there is many a tree, water hazard or bunker waiting to claim your ball.
the best holes are the par three 5th , 150 yards all carry over water to a green sloping from back to front.
the par four 7th, a dog leg right of 390 yards, a good 5/6 iron tee shot short of a ditch and pond to leave another in to a big green surrounded by a bank.
and my favourite hole the par four 8th, about 255 yards with a split fairway. it is reachable from the tee but the ditch running through the center splitting the fairway in two needs to be avoided.
as do a pond left and long of the green.
the other holes are fun but dont stand out as much.
the club house and pro shop is made up of several portable units and makes it look a bit make shift.
however go inside to the bar and you can have a breakfast and pint for less than £6.
the pro shop has a few bits but is small.
staff are very friendy as are the members and this is what realy makes this a good venue to play.
if you want to use the big stick on every tee then go elswhere, this is a course to think your way round. i shot 3 under may handicap of 12 and had a great time go on give it a try.
An enjoyable test of your irons and short game. You really only need a good drive at the second and fourth. The slopes on the greens help to keep scores higher and the brave player can take a driver and cut many corners BUT if you don't get it right expect a big score. Friendly club house with simple but value for money facilities.
THE BLOCK ABOVE IS TALKING BOLLOX THE COURSE ISNT BRILLIANT BUT ITS NOT THAT BAD IT CAN BE TESTING AND SUITS A BEGINER
A newly opened course that has still to mature.
If you like a course with poor fairways, naff greens and one that you play with a putter and pitching wedge then this is the course for you. Personally, I do not like pitch and puts!
A short 9 hole course that offers a good test of you accuracy due to two particularly devilish right hand dog leg par 4's. worth a visit if in the area however the course can suffer from local flooding and is not advisable after heavy rain
