10 reviews of Knights Grange Golf Course
this course is 2 courses in one,the front 9 lets you open your shoulders and go for distance,the back 9 has to be thought out,wayward drives will cost you.we played on a rainy day which made the 17th tee shot extra difficult,its probably the hardest tee shot ive come across.the club have an offer on for ladies ,when a lady signs up they get their first season as a member for free,honestly,my daughter signed on the day and is now a full member for the the total cost of zilch. well done knights grange.
Played at Knights grange on Friday 17 july the course was in excellent condition I had played there some years ago and the course was quite bare in places but now it was much improved I would recommend it to anyone the staff have done a great job.
Ive played various courses around the UK, both private and municipal. This course is without doubt the best municipal course I have played. Admittedly it can be a bit wet after rain, but the conditions of the greens and fairways are a testament to the hard work of the course staff.
Par 66 of the yellows and 70 off the whites I challenge anyone to play the 8th and the 17th (amongst others) and say that this is not a good test of golf.
The staff at the clubhouse are friendly and helpful, and I understand that there are plans to open the clubhouse bar more often.
Knights Grange is excellent value for money, it offers medium to high handicap golfers a good test even though it is a par 66.
The course is very well kept for a council run course, fairways and greens are generally maintained to a decent standard.
Though it is a relatively short course, dog legs, trees and ditches make you think about your tee shots and good course management is needed to shoot a low score.
Having only played for the first time at Knights Grange my initial impression would be that like any other council run course that it would "ok". Well, how superb is this course, I've never see greens like this when your paying £13.50 for a round.
The greenskeepers and all staff involved must be very proud. The course was very challenging and I and my other golf mates will be making a return visit soon rather than later.
Please keep up the good work....
Played here for the first time for 3 years and was dissapointed with the state of the fairways which were very muddy in places. Considering there had been no rain for the week I couldn't work out why muddy temporary tees were in use while the actual tees looked in pristine condition, after all it was a Saturday! Greens were in good condition overall and better than most municipal course. The back nine is more of a challenge with natural features coming into play on many holes. Not a particularly long course but overall good value for money.
Been playing at Knights Grange for a couple of years now. Always been great value for money and in my mind has some of the best greens around - they put more "upmarket" clubs to shame. A well kept course which is a credit to the greenkeepers. Some challenging holes on the front 9 - watch out for no.7 and no.8!! - and some decent long holes on the back 9 on which you can break out "the Big Dog". You really can't go wrong for the money with this course - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED *****
Played this course recently on what must have been the warmest day of the year. The front 9 seemed shorter than the back 9 and needed a bit of work on the greens but the back 9 (the extension) was in fantastic condition and was a little more challenging. Played to 8 going around this course and my usual handicap is 12 so not too challenging. An excellent confidence building course. Enjoyed it that much played the back 9 again totalling 27 holes. definitley worth a visit. Just a shame that there aren't really any facilities
An excellent municipal course. The back nine opened the beginning of this September has provided a worthy extension to an already well kept course. Overall the course is not that challenging to the experienced player but at £8.00 for 18 it is well worth a visit.
A nice gentle course with a dogleg 7th.There are 3 ponds on the course which all come into play,it can get quite congested on the 3RD ,over the pond.There are 4 par 3's and 5 par 4's with a ditch on 2of them and woods all the down the right on 8th. it is currently being extended to a full 18 hole which should be ready late 2000.The 9 holes as it stands now is quite tough.Also it is well maintained for a council run course.
