Very nice course in great order. Greens especially good.
A decent challenge off the back tees.
I played well off 11! I had 3 birdies and 7 pars. But that was only cos i played well, not cos it wasnt a challenge.
Decent value for £20 with the county card. Recommend.
Yes, the opening holes of the course are set against the back drop of a housing estate however look past this and you'll find a pleasant course underneath, if a little on the repetitive side. The greens were in excellent condition and did, more or less, all that you would expect them to. Holes 10 onwards are more of a challenge and less forgiving for the errant tee shot.
i have been playing this course twice a year for the last 10 years our society love going back each time, the staff are very nice the course is always in great shape some great hole to test all i travel up from cardiff and i can't wait to play it again.
Played Richings Park yesterday. The name Golf & Country Club and the reassuringly pricey green fee of £26 led me to believe I would be in some beautiful countryside. This was not the case. The first 6 holes in particular were very open and in full view of the nearby housing estate with the constant hum of the motorway and aricraft taking off from Heathrow!!! Whilst you never escape the noise from the M4 the course improves after the twelth hole but there is still a feeling of being in an industrial landscape with unmaintained water features and areas of rough.
In summary although overall the course is okay and the greens are good - I would not play there again unless the price was significantly dropped.
I've found Richings Park to be a well maintained, comely and welcoming golf club. The course is easy walking, with true greens and strategic, challenging bunkers.
It would be easy to get snooty about its location and accompanying traffic and aircraft noise... but for me, this green and watered golfing oasis would be my perfect waste of a few hours if stranded at Heathrow after missing the connection to Dublin or Dubai. Is there that much difference between 'traffic roar' and breaking waves waves on the west coast of Donegal to a blind man? (P.S. The M4 is well blocked out by mature trees on the boundary of the course on its southern aspect).
The highlights... Pretty par three into the trees on 6... picturesque Dog Leg guarded by elderly / huge tree on the next hole... challenging and long par fours 9 and 18 well bunkered and watered back to the clubhouse... Tough closing sequence 14,15,16,17, and 18... in the main, long driving holes with plenty of hazards to deal with.
Stuff like the varied and accessable practice area, air jet shoe cleaning equipment, clubhouse wifi and unpretentious 'oche'and sky sports in the spike bar really float my boat.
Well worth a spin... but don't tell too many, please.
Played there on March 17th. There was a slight wind and it was overcast. Started on the 10th due to a competition.
The course is not overly difficult with several drive + 8 iron holes. A couple of longer par 3's and only 1-2 par 5's.
The course was in good condition for the time of the year. Only 2-3 holes off mats (but they were good mats). Fairways were well presented and the greens were all in good shape (apart from a heavy dose of weedkiller grains).
Drivers are not always the best choice of club as you can end up in medium rough despite a reasonable tee-shot.
Comes highly recommended for the money. Staff are friendly and the club house offered good, fast food.
Design and condition:
As previous reviewers have said, the first half dozen holes are billed as 'links style', with the remainder being more mature parkland course. A well-laid out course, with many greens protected by bunkers (as it should be, I suppose !)
Not a long course and plenty of doglegs mean it's not always prudent to go with the driver. Water comes into play on the last few holes, with the 18th being a feature - 380 yards, then over the stream onto a small green.
Facilities and welcome:
Lovely old, converted club-house, ratrher sparse pro-shop, putting green and small driving range. Due to it's location, some of the holes suffer from noise from the M4, which is a shame. Still, at £12 each with a 2-fore-1 voucher, I would certainly go back.
This course backs onto the M4 where it joins the M25 by Heathrow airport so expect a lot of background noise. The course is a bit of a mixture with the front 5 holes being a bit barren and flat, and the remainder being set in mature grounds of an old country estate. Course generally in reasonable condition, but overall I felt it was a pretty average parkland course. Was good value on a 241, but wouldn't be inclined to play it otherwise. Clubhouse is modern and pleasant.
Greens and fairways in excellent condition,very friendly staff and members.
Food is spot on and very good value.
Well worth a visit.
A course that looks like it's had holes added to it. There are quite a few open holes at the start, but it starts to tighten up on the back where the trees and bushes seem more established.
Having only played it once, I wasn't struck by too many outstanding holes, although it has it's merits.
It did seem like it could be prone to suffering in wet weather, but I'd certainly go back again.
The clubhouse facilties are all okay too, although the range and practise facilities seem a little unloved.
Most enjoyable - particularly the last 5 or 6 holes which are delightful and a real good test. Very much like Florida courses except that the lilies and bullrushes on the water are several hundred years older! Our 3 ball took under 3.5 hours which is as it should be. The course seems suprisingly underused but we will definitely be back. The waterways and wildlife are a delight. Don't worry - there is plenty of room off the tee - wide fairways - and some great par 3's. Super
A very pleasant course with some very tough holes. Avoid playing into the rough as getting out can take some time (If you find your ball!).
The overall facilities are good, with a nice clubhouse/bar at reasonable prices.
Overall, good value for money. Highly recomended.
