Played the course this morning for the first time. The course was in great condition and was very little damage due to the weather. Had a enjoyable game even in the frosty conditions and will definitely come back in the spring.

Pleasant enough club house but although the staff were polite they didn't seem to know what they were doing.
The course ok but very bland, don't get me wrong there were some nice holes(mostly on the back nine)but on the whole it needs more definition of the fairways and thinning out of the trees.
The greens were good pace and true.
Overall it's ok place glad I've played it but won't be going back for as long as nothing has changed.

First time playing here today, a bit soggy but have just had torrential rain and the course played brilliant, a true gem of leicestershire golf.
Will be bringing the society next year, brilliant staff, beautiful course. All round a great and testing day of golf

My first visit to Park Hill Golf Club and I will be returning!Welcomed by friendly and attentive staff in the Pro Shop. The course played really well for the time of year. We played off the blue tees which is an ideal length for winter golf and I look forward to playing off the whites when we return! Enjoyed a snack and pint in lovely clubhouse after play. Great expereinece all round!

Played here several times. Course is long but always in good condition and can rely on it to be in good condition in winter when others are suffering. Well maintained range and putting green are a bonus. No buggies available on last visit so played and enjoyed new Par 3 course. Staff in pro shop are friendly and helpful. Bar staff also friendly, food is quite expensive, but good.

A very long and, to be frank, pretty boring round of golf. Park Hill is far too expensive for what it is, £30+ for a round here is really not worth it in my opinion. The course is always in good nick but is just a dull, long slog. The pro shop staff are arrogant and bordeline rude, they don't welcome visitors at all, and need some training in customer relations asap. Decent clubhouse though.

Played the course on a lovely June evening for only £14 - a real bargain as the course has matured brilliantly since I last played it about ten year's ago. It now looks attractive with varied routing and with the bunkers and water well placed and the greens fast and true. The clubhouse is also worth a visit with good beer, excellent dishes of the day for a fiver and very friendly service.

I played Park Hill in the summer of 2006 for a B Team game. The practice facilities were excellent and well maintained. The course too, was in good condition, having had some rain the previous day and the morning before I played.
As good a condition the course was in however, I can't say I particularly enjoyed the round. I played from the back tees (whites) and found that the course required little thinking, and merely to get the driver out of the bag. The length provides the main challenge, but the holes are open and the fairways wide, so it provides little challenge except for the odd bunker from the tee.
The changing rooms were nicely presented and the other facilities were great quality.
The course provided a challenge and is worth playing, but definitely not one of my favourites.

Played October 2006 on a blustery day. The course is very long off the white tees, but not quite so demanding off the yellows. But this gives you an immediate clue to the type of course. Its got lots of long par 5's, and feels a very long walk. However all the fairways are massive, so its designed for people with drivers to go and have a big hit! There are water hazards on the course and bunkers, however I couldnt see how any of them came into play, so guess they are for decoration more than anything else. The toughness comes from length, and very few holes are memorable, or require much finesse. However I enjoyed my visit, and the greens and course were kept in very good condition. Cost with a 2fore1 was £22 on a Saturday for a full ticket - very reasonable. I think as the course was only built in 1995 it can only get better, and with a nice clubhouse and decent facilities it should become a very decent course.

Not sure how my other entry got here that was a review for ansty golf club in coventry.
This is my review of Park Hill G.C.
On the card this looks to be a monster yardage, somthing more likely to be played in the european tour than a sunday nock up.
However this is from the tips and although its not short from the daily tees it dosnt play like its full yardage.
A good mix of par 3's, 4's and 5's , two of the latter being the 17th and 18th holes.
The holes are very well laid out using the contours of its hill top location and has mean but not unfair bunkering and water hazarding.
winter greens are used here in bad/adverse weather but you cant blame them as the greens are some of the best in the midlands.
Off course, there is a good but not cheap driving range and a good quality putting green.
The club house offers a warm welcome but again is not one of the cheapest so bring some notes with you.

Very Promising Course!
Long, wide fairways - but you still have to be careful and not just hit big. Greens are superb even when played in winter ( as I have just done )
Definitely the best new course in the county.
I found that the service was friendly, plenty of food choice and reasonably priced - and I was on a society, so I am suprised at other comments!
I'm planning on popping back soon, probably when my course is shut due to flooding

A very long course off the whites with excellent greens all year round. Lots of water!! Tough opening hole and some long par 3`s, lovely views of the Charnwood hills. The par 4 14th is the toughest hole ( though the SSI rates it 2nd ) in my opinion and the 18th is a corker with two ponds guarding the approach to the green, remember to take a few extra balls!! The clubhouse and pro-shop are excellent and the members and staff make you very welcome.When the trees have grown a little more, this will be a real test for all levels.
