Played here for the first time one afternoon in October and really enjoyed myself.
Members very friendly and inspite of being a solo player was invited to join a member who showed me the course.
The front nine is fairly straight forward, very flat and not too much to threaten a 24 handicapper such as myself.
The back nine is a bit more of a challange with short but tight fairways and a lot of water. This I found to be more of a test.
Overall the course was in good condition and the greens well kept. I think the course has be refurbished recently as there are excelent facilities including a very good pro shop.
All in all a good day out well worth £17.00 and the round took just under 3 hours.
Will play again.
Played here on the Bridge course for the very first time. We found the course was not particularly threatening, providing a very enjoyable round. The fairways are for the most part easy to hit, and mostly in good condition. The layout was well thought out. Course markings were excellent, and bunkers were consistent and well kept. Tees were as good as you can reasonably expect at this time of year, the only complaint being that nobody seemed to replace their divots on the par 3s but thats hardly the club's fault.
A few things we didnt like: Some fairways looked like they could do with mowing, and despite a relative lack of rain the ground was quite boggy in places. The greens were possbily the only real disappointment. The grass was often discoloured as though too much chemical weedkiller had burned it. Some greens were also quite lumpy and inconsistent.
Overall impression is that this course should be really nice once summer comes around and should definitely be worth the money once the greens recover. In the meantime, it was still a good round and I would happily play it again tomorrow
I've played the bridge course many times now over the last three years. The course is now playing the best it has in that time.
The course is being looked after with the future in mind. With a hundred or so new trees planted in the last 12 months. This is finally giving you a fighting chance of finding your ball in the rough, if you do wander of very wide fairways.
Greens are still hard, but great to put on.
Overall a very pleasent place to play golf, and at the price difficult to beat locally.
Christchurch Golf Club has moved to a new 18 hole corse.Holes 13 to 16 are on the site of the old 9 hole Iford.The new corse adress is Riverside Avinue,off Castle Lane East,Christchurch(drive by Tescos corse 400m on the right).It costs £13-50 w/d £17-50 w/e.There is a very large two tear driving range,large putting green and 9hole short corse as well.Over all not a bad corse fore the money.Just be warned,the corse can get water logged in winter.
