Played Bunsay Downs today. Haven't played golf for ages. Fantastic course in superb condition. Played both 9 hole courses. The little par 3 is a fantastic course and most challenging. The other 9 hole is open and spacious with some mature trees the last 3 holes are great and very tricky. Considering it is a pay and play course it is kept is lovely condition with all the greens running true. Also the facilities are very good the changing rooms are very clean. The food is first class and it has a lovely garden for you to enjoy a drink. I love this course and should not write about it as I would like it to be left as a secret golf course with no visitors!
As a member, I play this course regularly and,despite the winter conditions, I'm pleased to pass on that, although there has been the occasional ban on trolleys, players have not had to play off the dreaded mats at all, and the fairways and greens are in good condition.
Congratulations and thanks to all the Greenstaff!
I am a member of this club but I hope that this is an impartial report.
Bunsay provides a good round of golf for players of all abilities and, although not the longest of courses, first time players would be wise not to underestimate it. Five of the nine holes have lakes, the par 3 7th is 218 yards long and the 8th is long, has 3 trees in the centre of the fairway and slopes from right to left for almost it's entire length. Also, there's a lateral water hazard immediately behind the green.
The fairways are in good condition and the greens are very well kept (the 3rd and 9th are difficult to read).
Obviously, playing 9 holes twice is never as satisfactory as playing 18 but is worth doing just to try and master the 8th.
The par 3 'Badgers' course is very challenging, again with water involved on five of the nine holes. It is a true golf course as opposed to a 'pitch and putt'.
Finally, the food is excellent and plentiful thanks to Gary and Maria.
I have played this course several times in the past and I find it in most places quite dull.
I also found the fact that despite it being a 9 hole course you could not pay for just nine holes....
The par 3 Badgers course is completely different, challenging, varied and well worth a vist.
For me, Stay clear of the nine holes and go straight for the Badger!!!!
A great little course with challenges for all abilities. There is also a 9 hole, par 3 course which is extremely difficult in places. Visitors can play both courses for the same green fee (£11) which makes the round much more interesting. Both courses were in excellent condition in August, greens holding but true running, and the rough, which I couldn't seem to avoid, was not too high. Well worth a visit.
