8 reviews of Roserrow Golf and Country Club
Have been playing here (about 3 times a week) for about a year now and love it. New ownership came in a while ago and things are really improving. Course is looking very healthy and well kept, and generally feeling much better thought out. Staff and club members all really friendly too!
Where do you start, first and most important. this place is so over priced at 35 quid. i've played golf all over the country, at different prices. i wouldn't pay any more than ten pound to play here. but i wouldn't ever play here again, even if it was free. the course is in a very very bad state of repair, the tee boxes were terrible, just uneven piles of soil and grass seed. the greens where even worse, it was like trying to put on lego, patches of soil, with the odd bit of grass on it and what grass there was, was covered in pitch marks. the course does not have enough makers on the blind drives, u have no idea where to aim and there is no avalible course planner. and the icing on the cake, the buggy that cost 20 quid a round, lasted the large amount of 11 holes, leaving us havin to push it for 3 holes. when we address this matter with the staff in the clubhouse, we were told the manager was un-avalible. cuz he was out, having a knock round the course. overall the worse golf course we have ever visited. stay away, plenty of choice near this place, do yourself a favour and go somewhere else.
Played the course on 24/5/08 and found it to be in a rather poor condition. Scenecly it could have been wonderful but lack of attention to the borders of the course made it look as if they had spent a million pounds on the clubhouse and had nothing left to pay the green staff with. Pro shop was not in existance, no signs to show where the 1st tee or 10th te were,( had to go into reception and ask !!! ) No signs to guide us around, plenty of leg work needed to find the next tee in several places. original idea was i think good ( lots of stone walls built on walkways but neglected and now overgrown, looks like rubbish. ) many plants and shrubs planted but now overgrown with nettles etc. I would not play the course again or reccomend any one else to play until management gets it act sorted.
The greens were Ok'ish but extremely slow and needed a cut on our day. The fairways were generous on front nine, tighter on back, all needed a good cut and tidy. Some areas should have been ground uder repair but were not and resembled building site waste, ( 9th green ).
overall a waste of time and money cosidering the other good courses in the area e.g. Bowood, St Enedock, Trevose all of which we found to be excellent. Reccommendation....... GIVE IT A MISS.
Playing this parkland course provides pleasant views of rolling Cornish countryside and sea views towards Polzeath. The front nine is pretty bland, just whacking the ball down extremely generous fairways, probably the widest I have come across. The back nine has a lot more character and requires a bit of thought about the type of shot to be played. Be careful not to overclub approaches to the greens as most of the hazard risks are directly behind the green. The greens were extremely slow, but that might in part be due to playing in damp autumn conditions. Modern and spacious club house, though not the friendliest and at nearly £5 for a simple sandwich a touch pricey.
Appalling front 9, mostly flat, featureless. Lack of maintenance didn't help - greens hadn't been mown, tees shabby (loads of divots). One hole out of action - temporary green but the club staff recommended that we didn't bother playing it.
Good back 9 - interesting and well laid-out. Maintenance still poor though.
Overall, not worth the money. It's joined up with a fitness club and exclusive housing estate. Looked like a course that was built to attract residents to the housing estate rather than the discerning golfer. List of members revealed only 3 sub-10 handicappers.
I was on holiday with three mates and we were looking for a golf course to play. I spotted Roserrow in the 2-4-1 magazine and so decided to give it a go. It was a bit windy but sunny, and warm. The first three holes are a bit uninteresting, if you ignore the wind. But the rest make up for it, and how? High winds and long rough make the first few holes hard, the back 9 are totally splendid. Use of the contours is brilliant, the index 1 hole where you drive over a stream is interesting. Then after a short par three, a flick with a lob wedge, is a brilliant 440 yard par 4 with a dogleg at the end as the fairway drops to the green, excellent, I must return someday and do it all again.
We took advantage of the 2 for 1 offer which made the course good value. The first nine were flat and featureless, I was wondering why we chose this course. The second nine though is superb, well worth the fee we paid. I have to say though I don't know if it's worth the full fee (£30). I should imagine on a windy wet day the course is tough. It was tricky enough on a sunny breezy evening. Overall good value with the 2 for 1 offer but not worth the full fee.
Playing this course was an enjoyable end to two weeks in Cornwall. The course is spread over a wide area with views to the sea. There are several challenging and unsual holes that employ the rolling nature of the land to maximum advantage. The 7th is a delightful down hill short hole into a grove of trees. The 10th a blind dog leg right that falls steeply to the green. The first nine are flatter traditional holes the 2nd nine roll with the contours. An intresting course that I would like to play again. The club house is also a leisure centre with pool/gym/tennis/driving range and health centre, a good bar and food. There is enough to keep a non-golf family occupied while you play.
