8 reviews of Piltdown Golf Club
Played on 4 February on a cold but calm day. The fairways and greens were like slabs of concrete but this did not detract from what is a very good course. Holes 3, 13 and 17 are all outstanding par 4's and there is a good selection of par 3's. There are no bunkers on the course but the heather and gorse make up for this if you stray too far off the fairway. I must also praise the catering staff - the food we had was superb. Overall - a very welcoming club and one that I would like to return to in the summer.
Played at Piltdown in August 2009. Excellent! The clubhouse is old world and fabulous and the sort of place it's difficult to leave. So much history. Staff very welcoming. Nice to have an easy to use practice range too. Having read the club website and some of the literature about the course one might be worried about the descriptions of narrow fairways and small greens. The fairways are, in fact, fine, and there is plenty of landing space. The quality of the turf on tee, fairway and green is excellent. There is plenty of heather around, but with a bit of strategic thought visits to the heather can be kept to a minimum. All in all it's a fine course. Plenty of challenge, but not beyond the skill of longer handicap golfers. Will definitely return.
The clubhouse and setting is picturesque, the quality of the course is excellent. The holes are generally inviting and there is the opportunity to do well, with a bit of local knowledge to hand.
It is rare to find such well drained fine grade fairways in February, and they are a delight to play from. I cannot wait to come back in the spring and try out the greens in peak condition.
A fine course and great club.
A wonderful layout with some outstanding holes (3,4 13,14 & 17).
I last played here 3 years ago and the improvement in the course condition is amazing. It is now extremely well presented with excellent greens.
Very friendly staff and the whole Club has a very welcoming atmosphere.
Fantastic little heathland course with lots of gorse and heather.
Good greens, friendly staff and axcellent catering
Good well kept course with good greens.
Not long, but very tight fairways and a very good challenge.
Played with a member on 19th August and it was strange to play a course without a single bunker. Enjoyed the round, especially as I won 4 and 3 with a 7 handicap spread. Quirky looking clubhouse but flows nicely inside and I thought everyone very friendly, but then I was with a member, but who knows. They have their own sheep on the course to keep the grass down in the heather, the sheep do not eat the heather apparantly, never known this before. Also they are taking out a lot of trees to restore the heathland feel. They are doing a good job and when the scarring heals it should be a more testing track, that is not to say it is not now.
i was really excited about playing this course but it did not quite deliver for me. it was extremely wet in october so god only knows what it is like in the middle of the winter. i was considering membership but my brother in law said - 'keep your money in your pocket'. Having said that i would definitely play it once more in the middle of the sumnmer if i get the chance.
