me and seven friends went here for my birthday on saturday, we booked the full day package. it did state that we would get a full english but we did not we just got a small breakfast, we did mention this afterwards to a member of staff who said she would inform the manager and get him to e/mail us about a refund.the par 3 course is absolutely brilliant, great for a loosener before you tackle the just as impressive full course. only thing i would grumble about was the walk up the very steep hill to the tenth, there was a buggy taking people up in the morning but was not there when we arrived there at around half 2 but other than that a great round of golf, very testing. .however in the club house after, we were having a few pint and there was a seniors dinner. we did not know this, anyway a lot of old couples came in and were really looking down there noses at us as if we shouldnt have been there which i did not agree with after all we had probably spent in the region of 500 pound between us. the senior captain was there and never came and asked us if we enjoyed the course or anything, he did not even acknowledge us. which i thought was pretty disgusting. this is the part of golf which i do not agree with we have just as much right being there as anyone else even though we dont drive a bmw or a audi. we are putting money into there club and to get treat like that is unfair.next time i book a day out for the lads it will be somewhere were they appreciate your money and company.
just got back from an interesting days golf. set off with high hopes and scoring 21 points on the front 9 (this included a none scored hole) we headed up to the back nine well the heavens opened and what is an already tough challenge just got made a whole deal worse. a fantastic test of golf tho and some great holes inc 10 15 16 18. a friendly clubhouse meets your at the end of your round. all in all a good day out, just check tthe weather report first.
Great greens and tees, fairways were also in great condition. The front 9 is mostly flat with a few interesting holes in particular 5 and 9 which require good positional tee shots to get a good line into the green. When you head to the 10th yr in for a climb but when yr up there its all worth it. The 10th is a cracking hole and is followed up by the next 8! The green fee is worth it for the back 9 alone, one of the best Ive played. If you are in area this course is a must.
Played Ramsdale yesterday on a corporate day, and all i can say is it was excellent! friendly, good food and good beer. As for the Golf the front nine is easy and a nice way to build you up for the completely different back 9, good tees, good greens, good bunkers and very good fairways. It was very windy witch made it even more challanging. Put it this way: only one person out of aprox 20 hit the fairway on the hole we played longest drive. All in all a great day out and will defo be returning in the near future!
Played the High Course for the first time last Thurs for £18.50.
As suggested below, a fairly flat front nine, shorter but more heavily bunkered than the back, with a couple of short par 4's easing you into the round. First half of back nine is particularly hilly and with less bunkering. I personally didn't find the climb between 9 and 10 too strenuous.
Some really good holes, esp. 11 and 14 to 16 in my humble opinion. Huge doglegs at 9 (left) and 14, (right) you can cut yards off the approach with a well directed tee shot.
Course condition generally V. Good, although all par 3's and couple of others were still on winter mats. Probably about worth £18.50 (£20+ at weekends?) in top midsummer condition. With a TFO voucher an undoubted bargain for arond a tenner.
Played the high course twice now and it just gets better every time.greens and fairways on the high and low course are looking in tip top condition.plenty of birdie opportunities on the front nine of the high course,which is appreciated before you get to the killer of a back nine.to be fair though, the back nine is the nicest part of the course,as it is extremely challenging and enjoyable.well stocked pro shop,nice club house and driving range and a friendly atmosphere all round.well worth the money!
after playing ramsdale - the climb up to the back 9 on a tarmac path is just to much of an effort - ok if you are 18 or in the SAS and super fit - but then - having to play the next hole and the next all up hill - talk about sweating and panting - legs hurting - not to mention the big thumping in the side of my neck -but did i enjoy it - WELL OF COURSE I DID
The par 3 course is great for evening use to get some practise in and is in great condition. Every hole is different with up hill and down hill shots, and so doesn't become boring.
The high course starts off forgivingly on the front 9 and is in good condition and enjoyable, but the real fun starts on the second nine. There is a huge variety of shots with fantastic views. The 13th par 5 is a killer and will test even the very best of players.
The course also has a great driving range, restaurant and shop.
An extremely tough course - not for the faint-hearted! A very benign front 9 lulls you into a VERY false sense of security because the back 9 is a real killer - as demanding a set of holes as anywhere I have ever played! Having said that, Ramsdale IS well worth playing - fairways and greens are invariably in excellent condition, and the holes are thoughtfully designed - but only attempt it if you are as fit as a mountain goat for the back 9!
The low course is the best looking par 3 i have ever seen with some very challenging holes to save your par. The main course is only to be played if your feeling fit, the hills on the back 9 are challenging but well worth the reward with fantastic views and testing golf, beware though a lot of the par 3's appear closer than they actually are. The 13th is a nightmare if you miss the fairway, and even if you hit it you will probably roll of it, the 15th needs a good 1st shot just to hit the fairway. Overall two very good courses for very good value.
A relatively flat front nine with nothing too testing save a long par 4 at the 4th - good opening holes let you get into your swing - followed by a couple of straightforward par 3's and par 5.
Back nine completely different. Very undulating with the par 5 13th proving a test to keep the ball on the fairway as it is on the side of a hill.
The home straight is a reasonable test of golf with a couple of long par 4's and the 16th is one of the best looking holes you will play in Nottingham utilising numerous bunkers to great effect in the landing area of the fairway and around the green.
Overall a pleasant day out, quite an open course which gives you the chance to open your shoulders and let rip.
Don't play with a hangover as the hils on the back nine will kill you.
Following a few rounds on the excellent Par3, I have now played the Main Course which for a novice is a challenge, for outstanding views the back 9 is a must. Excellent value twilight deals.
One of the best par-3 courses I have played. I look forward to playing the high course
