2 reviews of Greys Green Golf
From early 2010 and having just departed my Wiltshire course of over 15 years, I started to play regularly at the Greys Green Golf Course, (GGGC) – and what a good move this proved to be. This picturesque arena provides a magnificent blend of golfing challenges - catering more than adequately for both rookie golfer and seasoned campaigners alike.
It's lush fairways sit within an amphitheatre of sheer natural excellence and beauty - providing an reassuring ambience that few golf clubs, [those with massive membership numbers particularly] rarely achieve modern day – its deceptive isolation, (Only 5 miles from Reading) and unquestionable serenity, transcends the basic round of golf into a rewarding and truly relaxing experience.
I would strongly recommend this course to any golfer, especially those folks with an interest in taking up the beautiful game. One major advantage to playing GGGC is that it is utterly bereft of the somewhat bullish and impatient behaviour that one associates with long-standing, low-handicap members – that detestable species than one can and does find at more established facilities throughout the country.
Given the somewhat austere times we currently endure, golfers of any ability-group can and will see their playing outgoings seriously reduced by playing Greys Green on a regular basis. The costs associated with playing GGGC would more-than-likely baffle those fiscally irresponsible players – the same who inanely outlay vast amounts of cash to play courses that are invariably well and beyond their respective skill-ratios.
Greys Green fees sit well below the ten pound mark for weekday golf – with weekends coming in at circa £12.00. In each case, be it weekday or weekend, these fees permit each customer to play unlimited golf on the day of their choosing.
I recall as a child hearing my uncle Tommy (a one-time 2-handicapper and my golfing mentor) succinctly define the major attribute of a well-managed and maintained golf course – that being the presence of a green-keeper or members of his or her staff on the course - at all times and during all weathers.
This simple analysis and indeed accolade, can deservingly be apportioned to the management and ground-crew of the GGGC, - their presence remains an ubiquitous feature when one is striding the fairways, be it for tending greens, endlessly mowing grass or generally titivating, Greys Green staff are to be applauded for their effervescence, professionalism, attention-to-detail and friendliness-in-abundance, the same that has made this course a exemplary jewel-in-the-crown - A must see – must play - golfing oasis.

If you could travel back in time and play a golf course what year would you choose? How about the first one ever cut out of fields and gorse?
Take away the sea add an English accent and this course pretty much replicates what playing conditions must have been like.
There are no bunkers and the fairways are simply farmland grass cut once then twice, and thats it. No landscaping or planting of seed. No bunkers and the "Greens" are just grass cut shorter with a hole in the middle. Thats it.
This whole course has a different approach to golf with no dress code, no tee off time, no facilities and cheap £9.00 to play all day.
It is incredibly challaging and requires a new level of skill but well worth playing just for the experience. They should play an open here and I'm not joking either as I'd love to see what the big boys would make of this.
