I played here 03/06/2011. Being a long way from my native Norfolk on a few days visit I was impressed with the welcome in the Pro-Shop and the help given. Furthermore, in the clubhouse, a frienly chat with the present Lady Captain about the course was again very welcome. On arriving at the first tee I met Tony, Tom and Tim (seniors) who invited me to join them and showed me round the course. I thoroughly enjoyed my day, their company and the course. At £10 it was good value for money and I will play here again on another of my frequent visits to relatives in the area.
An enjoyable round of golf on a nice little course. Think the top mark would have to go to the greens, all in good condition.
Big dislike was the two holes that shared the same fairway, not keen at firing golf balls at people walking up fairway. Think that some warning signs need putting up on this hole, with guidence into order of play.
Would I play here again? Yes I would, but would make sure insuarnce was up to date.
recently a pga pro called barry hurt took over from roy truman and has changed the course with new pots being made well stocked pro shop and with a new chef the course has took aturn for the good and the juniors are great love the club!!!
though only a par 68 the course was always a challenge. the quality of the greens was excellent. the elevated tees and greens with gulleys - gorse and bushes inbetween made you concentrate at all times.complements to the staff. definately worth a return visit.
I have played this course twice and, although I am a high handicapper, I managed to score reasonably well on it. I found the course both challenging and well kept.
However, my father, his friend and I turned up for a round yesterday afternoon for which we had a tee time booked for and we were greeted in the pro shop by the rudest man I have ever come across in my five years of playing this game. Basically the comment was along the lines of I don't care if you have a tee time booked, I didn't book it, there's a competition on and you ain't playing! Fair enough if there is a competition on and there had been a mistake but that doesn't give a reason for the way we were spoken to.
I certainly will not be returning to this golf course.
Bulwell Forest Golf CLub has now been traken over by Roy Truman, the new club professional. It is no longer looked after by Nottingham City Council as it has turned private. They have got new greengreepers in, and now the course is in better shape than ever before. It has some very tricky holes, but they just build up to the quality of the course. Very cheap Pro Shop as well as value for money round of golf. Well worth a play!
For the price you pay on this course, it could be better maintained. That aside, the course is quite challenging because of the vast variety of holes. Your tee shots really have to be accurate. There are many hills, short and long holes. It is spoiled at times though by the fact that many fairways are so close together that you end up getting in the way of other holes. This can be a nuisance at times. However, it is quite challenging as a course goes, and worth a visit.
Need to know if your tee shots are accurate?.....If so try this challenging course because if they aren't you will be in the mire.
