2 reviews of Old Nene Golf and Country Club
i played this delightful small course for the first time 2 months ago and since then it is always top of my list when wanting a 'quick nine holes'.
the course is challenging and in fantastic condition, with smooth greens and well constructed holes. each hole asks a different question on the drive with certain yardages being needed from the tee to approach the green due to sharp doglegs on the third and the fifth.
the new owners are very friendly and will always take time out to hear about your round, thus encouraging future returns to the club.
if you are near try it out, you wont regret it.
An altogether well looked after course. Clubhouse has family-run feel to it, with cheap prices on drinks!! The course itself is extremely challenging. It's always easy to think a 9 hole course will be easy, but not this one. The back nine using different tees adds an unexpected but pleasing test, with narrow fairways leaving you no option but to stick to your irons. Lots of water to avoid, extremely lush/green surroundings with many mature trees. Tip: Let the boats through first on holes 9 and 18!!"The Hampshire" doesn,t it sound grand, well nothing grand about this one i,m afraid.
arrived in plenty of time but had to wait half an hour for breakfast,so went out for some putting practice only to find it is members only putting green (ever heard of that before?)but no non members putting green available.teed off on course which is obviously a victim of the early nineties craze of theres a big field lets put a golf course on it,went into bunker on first hole to find stones as big as 20-30mm abundant on and in the sand so much so my playing partner damaged his sand iron.the further we went round the tees became terrible i would think the boxes have not been moved for a month.the fourth hole is way and above the best hole on the course a lovely par 3 with an elevated tee position, condition of the fairways and greens were good but would like to play the 16th when they have the pin on the elevated section of the green.played this on the 2 for 1 ticket and it was a fair price but to play it without it would not represent value for money,very similar in layout to test valley but not as challenging.
