6 reviews of Royal Blackheath Golf Club
Shortly after moving to London, I contacted RBGC about the possibility of joining. They put me in touch with some members that would sponser me after playing a round at the course, provided they see fit. Basically, if you golf with ediqute and respect the course and your surroundings, I can't see you being rejected. After having been a member there for over a year now, I can say that I don't regret it at all and it was worth every pound. Lots of competitions to play in and the course has been in nothing but amazing shape since I jointed. I have yet to see a temporary green and they course only gets shut down when it is going to damage it. This is a golf review but I can only say that this course is drenched in tradition (in a good way) which makes it a real pleasure for members and visitors alike.
I played Royal Blackheath last Monday with a member and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The course was in fantastic condition, the greens ran fast and true, and there is a really good mix of holes, some long, some short. Some hard ones, and some not so hard ones. To be honest I couldn't find fault.
As a 400 year old members club I was a bit reserved about how I would be received but they couldn't have been more welcoming. I was introduced to the lady captain, well looked after in the pro shop, and even when I held up 2 members by hitting my ball onto the 9th tee, they waited patiently and then congratulated me on my shot.
This is a fine example of how a golf club should be.
Just a shame I haven't got the £5000 or so pound I would need to join.
played on the 20/2/06 paid 25£ well worth every penny make sure you are a good bunker player as there are plenty of greens were a bit slow but when you stand on the 1st tee at 474yds you know your in for a tough time.
A group of nine of us played two rounds at Royal Blackheath on 25th April 2003, and I have to say we had a fantastic day. The clubhouse, course and staff were all superb. Our group had handicaps ranging from 8 to 35, and it was reasonably suited to all, although possibly a bit short for the longer hitters. We would definitely go back.
Played Royal Blackheath for the first time yesterday as guest of a member and found the course very enjoyable. Considering the very dry weather we have recently had I thought the course was in first class condition although the greens had recently seen a lot of work carried out on them (which we were made aware of before we teed off!!)
Tough opening hole, if you make par here you will feel like you just made birdie, believe me!
Some very good holes, noteably the 3rd, and 17th, a monster of a par 4 where once again consider par a bonus.
The history behind this club can be felt the moment you enter the very imposing clubhouse, but the welcome afforded to both myself and another friend playing as guests was a credit to all concerned. Would very much like a return visit if only I can persuade the member because at £15 the day it has to be the bargain of the decade!!
After being invited by a business aquaintance to join him for a round at Royal Black Heath, I made the eighty mile trip down into London. He had phoned the club and requested that we could play there as guests, this was granted and we were told it would be £30 green fees, reasonable i thought. On arrival we were told by the very friedly and helpful chap in the proshop this was actully a price based on a four ball and it was actually £120 for the tee (3 of us £40 each) we paid up anyway. Funny though that the proshop (shack) didnt take cards, only cheque or cash. Then we read on the notice board outside that there was a trolley ban on and there were 9 temporary greens also. I don't expect to pay £40 at a well respected club and have to lug my clubs round and play on temp greens. It was the first time i had played there and to be honest i could not understand the trolley ban as the course was very well drained. Other than the spectacular club house and 18th green i couldn't think of a reason to play here again, i have seen better council run courses offering much better value for money and indeed service. To top it all there was a chap having lessons on the left of the first using the fairway as a range! It was also strange to note that after midday we only saw a handful of other players, the course was deserted, i wonder why?
