Another good time at Duumer. Played as a three ball with handicaps of 12, 18 and 6. Playing satbleford from the white tees we found the course well set up and the greens running smooth and fast. Best score on the day was our 12 handicapper with 34 points. Bringing a society here in Septmber but will be back again many times before then. Well worth a visit - kep a look out for their web ofers.
I have played at Dummer 3 times in the last few months primarily because it represented very good value for money at £60 for the 4-ball (winter offer). The first two rounds were played in very wintry conditions and made for a taxing 18 holes but the last round was played on a beautifully sunny April morning and the course really shone. It is not the longest of courses, in fact there are several driveable par 4's but there is much of interest to compliment the picturesque surroundings. If you drive the ball well you can certainly post a good score (I am a 14 handicapper and went round in 80) but there are still plenty of hazards to negotiate. The clubhouse is also very smart and lunch was delicious and well priced. Highly recommended.
I played this course with with 3 other high handicappers on Saturday and found it to be an excellent challenge.
Speaking as an ex greenkeeper I thought the course was extemely well presented and the staff very helpful and friendly.
I can also recommend the bacon and mushroom panini!
Extremely disappointed. Played off 18 temporary greens in the middle of the summer - yet didnt even inform the group upon booking. To make it worse the Temp greens were not even cut! The course has potential, but is in dire need of some attention.
Not in a rush to go back to Dummer, many far better course within 20 miles.
Played this really good course for the first time last week as a four ball. We were alls amazed at how well the course was presented and the greens were excellent. The lakes and water hazards were particularly interesting and challenging. We were was delighted to find the half way house open selling, amoungst other things, hot drinks and homemade, giant sausage rolls. Superb views and lots of interest we all want to come back again. Look out for their web offers.
You could not find more helpful or freindly staff and the atmosphere within the clubhouse is second to non. We had a really good meal and very importantly the beer spot on.
Put Dummer on your must play list.
I played the course just after Chrismas when most courses don't look or play their best, but not here. I am please they have gone back to the older first hole, the only change from when I first played the course is the way you play one of the par three's, and I have to say its a brilliant change, and they have put the 18th back as it was, both a real improvement. The course played well, extremely well. OK the greens were not marvelous, but what do you expect in December, anyway I did sink a 30 foot putt on 17!
I was so please I have booked my society back in fot our final meeting of the year, the course is great, the clubshouse was great and very friendly, and the Secretary very helpful. If you are at a loss for a course to play, do yourself a favour and try Dummer.
Have played this Peter Allis designed course on a few occasions using discount vouchers. Fairly bland, open parkland course, an OK round of golf, but nothing special. The 18th is probably the best hole on the course; a touch late in the round! Navigation around the course can be a bit tricky as they had changed the order of the holes between two of the times we played it.
My first impression after playing the first few holes was actually quite positive. The course was in great condition (allowing for the lack of rain we've had) and from what I had seen of the course it looked like a great place to play.
However, by the time we were halfway through the back 9 it seemed like we were just playing the same holes again. Lot's of par 4's which were a drive and an iron to the green. Okay, so I didn't actually hit the green every time, but the only thing changing about each hole was the iron I used for the approach shot.
Apart from the par 3's and the 18th (where I finally got to play a wood from the fairway), I didn't really see enough variety about the course.
It is in good condition and I would like to go back there again, but I don't think it's a place I'll be looking to play too often.
Oh, and I haven't marked the general facilities as I didn't really use them. If a 0 is shown, then it's not because I was unhappy with them. The clubhouse looked very inviting from what I saw of it.
Played here midweek January 06 (£ 12.50 each using the Daily Telegraph Open Fairways card ).
An enjoyable course .Another good Peter Alliss creation with great thought in the design .Lots of mounding along the holes & around the greens as well as pot & sleepered bunkers give the course a links feel .The free draining fairways & rough also look & feel linksy to play off.
It's fairly open here & sets up well for driving & there are very few weak holes on this very good layout.
Drawbacks were that the course is close to the M3
so you get the noise ,the greens were a bit diseased ( but still ran well) & being stuck behind a members 4 ball for most of the front 9 until WE asked to come through on 10.
For £12.50 with the card this is a real bargain.
The course has reverted to the original layout as designed by Peter Alliss. The 1st is now an excelent getaway hole and holes 16,17 and the
re- modelled 18th prove to be a really challanging finish.
The course flows brilliantly and the two loops of 9 are a delight to play.
We played on a day when other local clubs were closed due to the earlier rain and found the course dry and in great condition.
As always we found the welcome genuine and our meals freshly made and delicious.
Second time I have played this course, £15 for a round after 4pm good value. Nice course, not too challenging, quite short. Club selection important some of the pin positions were quite awkward to access. With the wind blowing in the right direction many of the greens are easily drivable. Nearly drove the 1st and 7th with a 3 iron. Greens quite tricky to read but run true, all in good condition. All in all a good course to play.
A great test of your golfing abilities. not the longest of courses but the small greens are fantastically true, and the narrow fairways ensure you're kept on your toes. Staff make you feel very wellcome and the facilities are top notch. I will be definately playing this course again. 10/10....
I went to Dummer golf club as a guest because my friend is a member. I was impressed by the driving range, practice green and the whole course. My favourite hole was the 18th because you are hitting back to the clubhouse, its a testing par 5 with many hazards. Overall its a brilliant golf club.
Played again. No course starter. Greens very slow but true. Improvements abound. Club house OK. Food plentiful & reasonably priced. Will definately go again.
This is a great course - Peter Alliss design. Very dry, always in good condition. New pathways excellent. You can always depend on this course to be open, especially when other clubs in the area are closed. How many clubs do you know wich had Buggies in December and January?
Upgrade in facilities and Clubhouse environment excellent under new ownership. Food and Bar ecellent quality and value. Great friendly atmosphere in clubhouse.
New course layout quicker and more efficient.
Great test of golf for all levels of handicap. Societies and visitors made welcome. Golf day prices good value for money. Dress code and soft spikes policy uphold standards. Course Marshals keep play moving.
Must be one of the most 'integrated' clubs for Ladies in the UK!!
Well worth a visit.
Oh dear. How things change. Played on Friday 7th July. At 7.45 in then high season all gates locked unless you had a members swipe card. Pro shop & cafe closed. (Couldn't sign in, buy balls etc.) Officious starter caught up with us on first tee to ask if (i) we were members, (ii) had we paid etc. More efficient less officous would help. Got round first nine inside 90 minutes to meet middle aged four balls (members) going off the tenth. No chance of playing through!! Course in reasonably good condition. Looks like the change of ownership has meant delusions of grandeur.
Played 5th May 2000. Hot, sunny & windy. Club selection vital as a result. Some challenging holes, notably two tricky par threes & a difficult 18th. (Two lakes, 1 lost ball!)
Clubhouse lunch cheap & plentiful. Lots of members obviously knew each other giving the clubhouse a pleasant atmosphere. Course in good condition. No queues at all on a Friday afternoon.
\r\n The club has a very friendly atmosphere, especially since its new owers have completely refurbished the club house in a very tasteful decor. The course is primarly a parkland course although it plays like a links course when the wind gets up. The course drains well in the winter and is water well in the summer from two of its three lakes. The fairways are kept well and the rough is kept rough. The greens are not that fast but are normally in good condition. A course is suited to the mid to high handicaper but is still a test for the low handicaper. Food and drink in the clubhouse are excellent - real expresso/cappuccino coffee. A great club for society days, you are well looked after.
The course dries out quite fast after rain and during periods of strong sun as there is very little cover. On the course facilities would benefit from some "drinking" stations for players eg taps or fountains. The loose gravel in the carpark could do with some stabilising and access to the course could be improved. Currently access is through security gates and/or the club-house. It is difficult for visitors.\r\n\r\nOverall impression as a visitor is that the course is acceptable considering its age and location.\r\n
A course to suit all abilities. Forgiving for the high handicap player yet challenging to the low handicap player.\r\nThere are three lakes on the course, coming into play on the 1st, 12th and 18th holes. A links type course which can be tough to play when the wind is up!\r\nThe fairways are generous with good quality grass. The greens are good with some subtle undulations with good variation in size and shape.\r\nThe clubhouse is well appointed and the staff are very friendly. Good quality food at a reasonable price.
