this was my first taste of golf, I played a full 9 holes with my son who is quite a good player, we were the first out on the course and it was very pleasent
as a complete learner of the game I must say that I enjoyed every moment of it I didnt have the best of scores but it was great,
the course was a bit water logged in places but with all the rain we have had this month it was to be expected the course was well maintained and plenty of room to make mistakes and not lose the ball
to my mind for the cost of the round as a learner it was brilliant and I will certainly be going back for more fun and punishment
when I think of all the money my son pays out to be a member of one of the main clubs in our area I would prefer to support the smaller golf course like this one
many thanks for an enjoyable day
I was suprised when looking at previous reports to see some going back to 2000 - I had presumed playing the course that it was only one or to years old because little seems to of been done to it since it was converted from farmland. No trees have been palnted (although there are one or two orgianal quite old trees and some hegderows) and there is hardly any diffinaition between fairway or rough. The greens look awful, but actually did not put that badly.
But what really annoyed me about the course is that this is not the worst piece of land in the world and a decent designer could have made a far better layout. It was so obvious that greens were in the wrong place, holes could have been made longer and at very little cost a decent course produced. Also there are some good views but i just spent my time thinking how much the course could be improved. WHy land owners think they can design their own course when course designers can maximise the use of the existing land is beyond me.
I do have to say Spoffoth which is only 3 or 4 miles away is an example of a far better designed pay and play in this area.
Very nice club house serving good food nice atmosphere the cousre is great if you are just starting the greens are getting alot better I thought that it was very good for the price it's a very nice little course I shall be visting again you should to
Played Crimple Valley today. One to avoid. Fairways poor, greens worse - if you can call them greens. No Grass and full of moss.
£15 for 18 holes is a laugh and better value is available nearby.
Played the course on a hot and sunny day only to be greated by three players without shirts and wearing cut-off jeans, Im not a stickler for the dress code but there are limits!!! The greens were poor, the fairways even worse, all the holes are straight and the stroke index one hole is the first, very odd! Very un-impressed with the entire set up Im afraid. Needless to say, I won't be re-visiting.
Green are in good condition considering the course is always open despite the weather,although it can get very boggy around 1st green and just off 2nd tee.
Very nice clubhouse serving good food.
