3 reviews of Broome Park Golf Club
Have been playing this course as a timeshare owner for over twenty years - before the 1987 hurricane did so much damage! The first nine are very interesting and challenging, especially the fifth for up and down between the trees, and the eighth for giving it welly. Back nine there is the tricky fourteenth and out of bounds on left fifteenth, while the short seventeenth between the trees and the now right hand dogleg eighteenth that finishes over the lake. Some holes are a bit nondescript and just boringly follow the terrain, but the bunkers are being remodelled to spice things up. You need at least your b game to score at all, and the greens are good and challenging. Of course i only pay £7.50 and it ought to be free for me as it was some years ago, so I like the course! But it's a little overfussy with marshals and the like, but OK.
A few good holes as I remember, but the general impression was a fairly tedious course in many places, particularly for the money involved. There seemed rather too many holes which mirrored the previous one in reverse. As well as this, some of the holes seemed to have been simply crammed into an empty field on a slope, with no real characteristics of their own.
A fine Country Park course with some very nicely laid out holes. When I played in early August the greens were in superb condition. The 15th is a notable tight hole OB on left causing many to sweep their tee shot across an oncoming fairway on the right all too easily. The 18th is particularly special with a large pond protecting your approach shot, sending many players scampering for the 19th quicker than expected!
