14 reviews of Knotty Hill Golf Centre
A good place to spend a day playing golf as you have a choice of 5 loops of nine (yes that's 45 holes)to play on.
Not the longest or the most challenging courses you will ever play and certainly not "designed to championship standard" (eg unremittingly long and tedious) as so many new courses claim to be.
Knotty Hill is just a good honest well looked after layout which the average golfer will enjoy.
The clubhouse and facilities are good and there is a friendly and welcoming feel to the place.
Very good value for money.
Knotty Hill Golf Centre is just an all round great place, from the clubhouse to the course, from the driving range to the restaurant! Prices are cheap, only £14 for 18 holes and 80 balls on the driving range for only £3. The food on offer is superb with some delicious specials on midweek and Sunday roast on a weekend!
The clubhouse staff to put it simply couldn't be better! They will help you with anything regardless of its relation to golf! They always have smiles on their faces and welcome anyone with age, class, ability, gender irrelevant as everyone is made to feel at home! They aren't stuck up and are always laughing and joking with customers every time I've visited.
The course management is superb also and speaking to the owners and having played in the winter, they won't close the course unless its absolutely necessary. Having 45 holes they have always found at least one 9 hole and more often than not at least one 18 hole combination to play in the worst of weather conditions when everyone else nearby is closed, they really do put the customer first!
Other courses take note!
I played Knotty Hill earlier this year as I was visiting family but managed to sneak off and do 18 holes first thing in the morning.
I play off 17 and I found the course to be a fairly challenging and I loved some of the vies from several tees. I would reccomend this course and I would say it is at its best early morning in the blazing sunshine.
I look forward to playing there again
My name is Steve Wright- I have been a member of Knotty Hill for 8 years, love the place, my way to get away from the daily life challenges. I have played all courses.
Value for money is excellent, as a member you get rewarded for playing regularly, free rounds every so often.
Staff are superb, helpful, friendly and that layout of the club house very warming - a real home from home.
Food is good and facilities at range and club also score highly. As for not having a bar, GOOD , showing the way in avoiding drink driving!! Well done KNotty Hill.
i am a member of this golf club, so it is not surprising that my comments are positive and up beat, but it really is a great place to spend a day trying to do what all the books and videos say ? on the driving ranges , chipping and putting greens and then full of tigerish zeal go on any of the 3 / 18 hole courses and be brought back to reality. only to be comforted by kind words and nice food by 2nd to none knottyhill staff.
I was hugely impressed with Knotty Hill Golf Centre from the minute I arrived in the car park, 6.40am and a carpark attendant waiting for me to assist with any parking difficulties, excellent stuff.
Once the car was safely parked within the boundaries, I moved into the clubhouse where I was greeted by a delightful chap by the name of Kenny, very pleasent, he ensured all players met the dress regulations of the course, informed us of any grounds under repair and wished us luck.
We played Course C & D, a great mix of different lengths and obstacles, a thoroughly enjoyable round. The course was challenging as no two holes seemed two alike, there were many water hazards, or hazards from the tee as well as many fairway bunkers.
Overall, it was an excellent value for money round and I would certainly return again. Negative point would be the lack of bar, as we had to travel to the nearest watering hole for after round refreshments.
This is a popular course, and at only £13 to play at the weekend you can see why. All four sets of nine holes are similar. Not too much in the way of hazards (very few bunkers), but the greens are small so you have to be accurate to get a good score.
i have played at knotty hill on several occassions and found that both the a&b and c&d courses are excellent value for money.the a&b course are the harder of the 2 due to the fairways being tighter and the trees and rough being more established.the course is in fairly good condition but found the greens a little pebble dashed as other players have not repaired their pitch marks. the staff are very friendly and the facilities are excellent with 3 different options of a driving range as well as a practice bunker and 2 large putting greens. I can;t wait until the new 9 holes they are constructing are finished as it will give a player even more options when booking
As a member of knotty hill i think the princess course is an excellant challange for most golfers, there is a good range of practice areas and also the bishops course, the staff ar freindly and welcoming but the club on a whole does lack a bar and the food could be better, if its just golf you want "BRILLIANT"
knotty hill is a lovely flat course with very good facilitys. thic course is well worth the visit. i played the princes course and i thaught it was very challenging

Great facilities. With the option of a driving range from 3 locations, a practice putting green, practice chipping/bunker area and 2 very different courses!
Course A&B is much longer than C&D. A&B course is quite straight forward, the first nine are of varying length and with some obstructions, while the back 9 are all pretty much long and straight without many obstacles.
COURSE C&D is shorter, but with very different holes. The lengths are different, and have several water hazards/trees/other obstacles.
Big down point - NO BAR in the clubhouse :-(
As mentioned by previous posters, the play and practice facilites are pretty good, though the food was left mostly on the plate - very poor - eat before you arrive.
What was amazing was inside the clubhouse - it seems that this aladin's cave sells everything - including second hand dresses - what's that all about?
Back to matters golf, we paid and played and enjoyed the course several times over five days but no pga professional is based at the club for tuition.
Played the princes course on a wet and windy day which proved hard work. Found greens to be in excellent condition and overall the course looked to be very well maintained and 13 quid is very good value. Will definately return soon to try the bishops course, staff very friendly and helpfull and fascilities very good.
Excelent facilities and friendly staff made for a very pleasant but tiring afternoon of golf. We played the Bishops course the shorter of the two courses and the newest addition but with a strong breeze it played very long, or was it that we played rather short.Well recommended we will return to play the other couse ( Princes Course )
sooner rather than later.
