13 reviews of Collingtree Park Golf Course

Very good course, especially off the back tees.
One mystery is where are the blue tees (championship tees) on the 13th and 18th holes? we couldn't find them.

the fairways could be in better condition, but great value at £16 with a county card.
You can get in a lot of trouble here, especially if you get in the knee high rough.
We'll definitely be returning.

A great test of golf for all levels. There are some easy holes and also some very tough ones. The course played long due to the recent wet weather and the rough was demanding. The greens were excellent as was the general condition of the course. I would recommend this course to anyone but I was surprised that the British Masters was played here a couple of times as it's not in the same league as Woburn down the road!

played here on monday. very friendly pro shop they paired me up with a member to play with. made sure i hit some practise balls first to warm up.i really enjoyed the course, the excellent company,the food in the club house and the genuine warmth of the whole place. i lost the game on the 18th yep dumped in the water the wedge nearly followed.if only all clubs were as friendly and charming to their visitors as collingtree. if you are near or passing stop play a round you will not regret it.it is all true about the 18th a stonker of a hole. thanks kyle for your company .

I played Collingtree Park last Wednesday in a three ball. The first is a straight par four with the left hand side being out of bounds due to the driving range, I was frustrated when I hooked my tee shoot into the driving range and couldn't find my ball amongst 100's of others ! After that the course just gets better and better, with some tough holes leading to the climax par 5 18th, with water on the left and an island green. I was very impressed with the condition of the course the tees, greens and fairways were in excellent condition and made the round most enjoyable. I think the green fees reflect the condition of the course and are fair, and the clubs rules were relaxed and accomodating, my only major disappointment was getting back to the club house at 6:30pm only to find they had stop serving food !!! We drove over the road and went to the Toby cavery instead. Just would have been nice to eat a sandwich\meal and watch the golfers approaches onto the 18th, all in all a fantastic course just disappointing leaving with an empty stomach !

Our 20 strong Society played here on Sunday 30th September. First impressions were good as we stood on the balcony overlooking the island 18th green watching players attempt the shot over the lake.It seemed at least one in every four failed in the period we were watching. We had arrived early and so made good use of the driving range right behind the pro's shop.
Our game started right on time and we soon spread out achieving a four hour round without asny problem. The first three holes are an easy introduction to the round and settle you for what becomes much more complicated from the 4th onwards. Lots of water and a course planner is essential if you are to make a good score. As the holes progress, it becomes a real thinking man's golf course and careful shot planning is very important. Straight and accurate tee shots are essential. The closing holes get more and more difficult culminating in the 18th which your correspondent was delighted to get on in regulation and get a par 5. You would have to be a very long and accurate ball striker to take the green on in two shots.
We will certainly return.

Feb 2006. Played on a very cold day, but Winter rate of £25 very agreeable. Excellent welcome, and superbly designed course despite being set next to a busy dual carriageway and in the middle of a housing estate. Course is a great design making use of lakes and the river. Greens are superb,with great variety. If you try too hard, the course can punish you. Use your head and you will have no problems. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Looking forward to playing here again. Just hope that the owners can maintain the quality of the course without pushing the green fees too high. Its a good course at present prices, but I wouldnt say it was worth any more.

I have held 2 society days a year on Collingtree since 1991 for around 20-30 people. The course and especially the staff are fantastic and make you most welcome.
We have had many levels of golfers play, i chap getting through over 40 balls in a single round !!! I think there is more water at Collingtree then there is in the North Sea. In 2000 I emulated Sam Torrances closing hole feat of smashing a driver then a 3-wood to 12 ft and sinking the putt for a gross round 75, follwed the next day with a 77.
The course always plays to a very high standard even if it does RAIN all the time !!!.

Very good course.Yes,the 18th. has to be seen to be believed.Generally,the greens are excellent,and are very well protected.They're mostly very undulating,some with narrow necks.It's certainly very hard to hold the greens.Recommended.

1st Time I played the course I thought it was great,Very testing on the high handicap player like myself.Enjoyed it very much. 18th hole was the best last I have ever played and boy was i glad to get under double figures.
Excellent value.

The course itself could hardly be bettered - just about having that feeling that you're playing in the middle of a modern up-market housing estate. Forget about those adverse comments about the greens a couple of years ago - they're now superb. Many fascinating holes - lots of them with water in play. I havn't yet completed the 18th in less than double figures!

Played the course 3 days in a row.Great course in the wind,greens were excellant.The long 9th I hit in two with two very well stuck 3 woods.\r\nThe 18th is a joy to play, with it's island green.\r\nI remember Darren Clark hitting it in two using a driver and a 6iron during the British Masters.The days I played it I had to hit two 3 woods and a 7 iron . \r\nIt's a must play course.

Fantastic course. Geoff Pook, professional, comes highly recommended for all levels of tution. He took me from a new starter to sub100 rounds after only 5 lessons. The tution facilites are fantastic.
