8 reviews of Middlesbrough Municipal Golf Centre
I have played the municipal course a number of times now and find it to be challenging. It is a parkland design and has some testing holes for all abilities. There has been a vast improvement in quality over the past year with drainage and plenty of spiking. The greens are wet in the winter but again have improved dramatically with all the work that has been done. I would reccomend this course to anyone as it is very good value for money.
I play the municipal golf course at least five days a week and i have yet to find that it has 20 holes as Neil Keenan said in his review. At the moment there's a lot of ongoing work on the course. The car park facility are one of the best in the area with security cameras. With the bad weather that we have had the course itself is in a very poor condition. The back six is a big let down as it seems to be closed three months of the year approximately. Not good value for money. The lay out of the course is great; a test for any golfer. Greens are below standard, bunkers need upgrading (no sand), more ball cleaners required on course as the last count i only counted two and both had no water in. Off course facilities could do with airhose cleaner for shoes and trolleys, locker room needs refurbishing.
The venue itself is very ideal for anyone learning to play golf.
I have played Middlesbrough Municipal many times and always enjoy the challenge. The layout is excellent and each hole is unique. The course is divided into two parts with the first 12 holes played over fairly flat parkland with generous fairways and equally generous bunkers. The final 8 holes appear on the other side of a ditch which runs right through the course, these holes are a little more open in places and provide a different test. There are many stand out holes: The 3rd is a short par 4 with out of bounds and a stream down the right, and the par 4 9th requires a second shot to a raised green over the ditch. The par 4 13th and most difficult hole has a daunting drive over the trees and there is an equally difficult opening to the par 5 18th. Despite the excellent layout the course looks tired in places and there are spots where drainage is poor, but when you realise this is a council run course you can accept this, especially with the price. The facilities are good and all staff are friendly and helpfull
The course is very well set out.The fairways are well cut, bunkers strategically placed. Driving range on site with a well stocked Pro shop. Overall a good course to play. I would recomend this course to anyone.
not so good but good 18th hole its dead close to the pub when were finsihed the driving range has a lovly little green tractor. the range is only good for hitting balls at the tractor when its out.
on the 3rd holes watch out for eastersiders as they will run out of the bushes and take your ball but overall its good value for money if you are just a beginner.
The course is in good condition considering how much it is played. The course is set out very well and there is some challenging holes.
The bunkers could do with a bit more sand in them and they could have a second cut going from fairway to rough.
overall it is a good course to play i would recommend to anyone
Played yesterday, on a glorious October morning (why weren't there any in August?). Having been regular visitors to municipals in the Leeds area this course has to stand head and shoulders above them and for just £11.50, it has to be the best value for money course around.
Most fairways were well cut, bunkers strategically placed and well maintained and greens largely true. It has a nice steady, almost easy start but then gets increasingly more challenging with some narrow fairways and daring drives The the stroke index 1 hole and the 18th, were for the uninitiated, especially heart in the mouth affairs.
Facilities were good and staff encountered friendly. In all this puts many private courses to shame and I will certainly give it another go next time up in the North East.
THE<MUNI>AS IT IS KNOWN LOCALLY OFFERS SOME VERY
CHALLENGING GOLF FOR HIGH AND LOW HANDICAPERS.
CONSIDERING IT HAS BEEN IN THE GUINESS BOOK OF RECORDS FOR THE MOST PLAYED COURSE IN THE UK IT,S
IN PRETTY GOOD SHAPE WITH SOME DEMANDING HOLES
<the ninth,thirteenth and eightenth>BUT TO MENTION A FEW ALTHOUGH PRETTY FLAT COMPARED TO OTHER LOCAL COURSES THIS IS BALANCED OUT BY THE
VERY NARROW FAIRWAYS NOT MUCH ROOM FOR THE WRONG
STRATEGY OR CLUB SELECTION
BEARING IN MIND YOU WON"T BE DISSAPOINTED.
