6 reviews of Sleaford Golf Club
Played the course last week and it is in excellent condition. Great value winter package and all of us made to feel very welcome. Greens in excellent conditions. Some changes to course since last visit which have made the design even better. Will definitely return. Well done Sleaford
Previously played this course 5 years ago when it was in much better condition. Over that time it has become scruffy and badly maintained and is really in need of some management and tlc. There is still a pleasant welcome and the course layout is good, but lack of attention to detail makes it poor value compared with nearby courses like Spalding and Boston West.
Would we play it again? Probably not until the condition improves.
Day three of our tour, found us on an hours drive from our delightful hotel in Louth, The Beaumont, we can recommend it. It rained throughout the whole journey and we had serious doubts about playing at all, we holed up in the clubhouse with a group of members awaiting improvements, it eventually stopped and they made there way out to play a mid week medal. We gave them ½ hour to get away and then played 18 holes without getting wet. Again the fairways were badly burnt, but the greens were very good, and all were of a good size, but very slow after the rain storms. There are numerous bunkers, rather spoilt by the amount of stones in them and several fairway ones are deep, stay out. Excellent 150 yard markers but, again lack of signs indicating the route to the next tee and we ended up on two wrong tee boxes.
Very nice clubhouse and members, the Pro was particularly helpful. Was it worth an hours drive and would we play it again? Probably not, but a good course for societys, plenty of room and opportunities to birdie several par 5's the food looked good.
5th August 2009, There must be something about East Midlands golf clubs as they all seem fantastic and very friendly. We have visited the area for the past 4 years for a golf week and keep finding more gems. This course is one of them. Mature 1905 parkland style course with superb greens, very fast and true. The clubhouse and members were very friendly and the course challenging but not too difficult for most golfers. I mean I never see the point of playing say these 'Open' venues at 100 quid a time and scoring 140 then saying 'great played Carnoustie etc' Would recommend this course to anybody, only gripe was the big pot bunker way over on the left on the 17th, I think I was the only person who went in it all day due to a cracking drive fading left to right to combat a strong wind against you, cannot see the point of this bunker it just punishes a good drive. They take the '2fore1' tickets so great value days golf.
Golfers of all handicaps will find this course challenging and fair. You need to rely on more than just length off the tee for many of the par 4s as many doglegs and hazards are in play. The par 3 (I think its the 12th) is one of the most interesting you are likely to play. The course was in superb condition when i was there (late April). The greens were fast but true, and held onto iron shots. Although we hadn't booked and there was a tournament going on, the staff were very friendly and accommodating, and the facilities (particluarly the Guiness) were top notch. Well worth the money.
Good course with excellent greens.Dries out well in the winter but can be a bit too firm in the summer.Nice clubhouse with good food and beer.Well worth a day out.
