A friend and I played here last evening as non-members. I must say that the Pro-Shop assisted me greatly with booking a tee-time, even after my error in getting the days wrong! Thanks Bill (I think it was Bill)? The course was better than I expected, in really good nick, and the greens were really true, and very fast. A very picturesque course especially on a sunny evening, look out for the Buzzards ! The course I found if you are not straight-ish from the Tee, which I was not, then you will loose a few balls, as I did (seven infact)Nightmare ! But in reflection I'll be back here next Spring.
I don't normally do these, but we've just had a great experience. Last week in February at a loose end, my mate an I fancied a game of golf. I read the reports on this site of Eaton, and just had to let you know how we got on. Everything said below is true. We turned up expecting the worst after a week of rain. The course wasn't dry but was in really good condition. Proper tees, no temporary greens, no electric trolley ban made our golf day really enjoyable. The young lad in the proshop was really helpful and the catering was superb, but the reason that I am writing in, is that there were 3 separate groups of members in the lounge. Each one treated us as though we were members. The banter was hilarious, and I would like to thank them for their hospitality. If I didn't live 200 miles away, I would join.
This course just gets better and better! Played it this week, just after the Chester Championships, and it was magnificent. The Members are obviously not afraid of improvment and change and have introduced a number of new bunkers over the last two years. Even more exciting was the presence of some Black markers on a number of holes behind the Whites which indicate the position of new tees! Appparently, the Cousre will now be well over 6,700 yards next year. A real challnege to add to the ponds, sreams, trees and the by now famous greens which are fast, undulating and large, a real challenge.
The Course is a real thinking Course, don't auomatically reach for the Driver.
Combine this with a superb Club House, truly excellent food and the English Club Steward of the year for 2009 and you won't find better value for £35 anywhere.
What a difference time can make. I last played Eaton during a "dry" spell 5 years ago. It was sploshy underfoot, balls off the fairway plugged so deep that you couldn't find them - not good.
This time (I was brought kicking and screaming by my society) we played after 2 days of torrential rain. The tees, fairways and greens were immaculate. There were a couple of wet patches between greens and tees, but otherwise the course was in excellent condition.
New planting, and a couple of ponds I don't remember being there before have made the place an extremely attractive proposition.
The greens are large and contoured. The copurse is long(ish) but my favourite holes were amongst the shorter par 4s - 7th, 12th and 13th in particular.
The catering was excellent, our reception welcoming, and overall we had a great day.
I envy the Members.
Played Eaton one evening during short business trip to Chester. We almost had the course to ourselves.
The course was really good, especially the greens, which were fast, true, and difficult. I think I three-putted more here than I can remember.
The course is open, long and was in excellent condition. Some of the approaches can be tricky, and my not-very-good card was ruined when I took on the trees on the 12th. A wonderful hole which I'm sure is very easy if you play it properly ..........
Definitely on my list for my next trip south.
This was a superb experience. The course is relatively new but is extremely well laid out. It is very forgiving off the tees, but approaches to the greens are difficult, and the greens themselves are a bit special. Smooth, true, fast, undulating, and very large. A couple of them are 30/40yds from front to back.
Condition was excellent and the presentation of the course when we played it a couple of weeks ago was immaculate.
The clubhouse is light, airy, has excellent views over the course and is well appointed.
The fish and chips were excellent.
Criticisms? Some of the copses need a year or twos growth, there is a funny pond(ish) area half way down the par3 6th which isn't really in play, but looks new, and some of the sand in the (very well kept) bunkers was a bit variable in consistency.
All in all? This is the best course in the Chester by some distance, and ranks amongst the best in the North west.
A nicely laid out course of gentle undulating fairways and very good greens. The par 4 12th is an outstanding hole. It is obvious that a great deal of money has been spent on this course already and if this continues Eaton has the potential to be very good when it reaches maturity. Another nice touch is the club's interest in the observation of local wildlife which it encourages members and guests to record in a book in the lounge. Catering was also excellent.
This gently undulating parkland course improves with each visit. In summer the greens are exceptionally fast and difficult to read. The water features and meandering stream adds interest to a number of tee shots and makes club selection crucial for some approach shots. When on the 12th tee (a short par 4) you may well ask why is this stroke index 3? You'll find out when you take your second shot and if you hit the green don't think you've done the hard work!!!
Catering - excellent.
Helpful and friendly staff.
Well worth a visit for both indivuals and societies.
