never again mixed up our booking, course a mess from tee to green, i think I better leave it there enough said
Absolutly awful! It hadn't rained for over a week when we played and the fairways were a mess. Every shot plugged 2 inch deep. If you dont hit the fairway its impossible to find ball and because most shots off the tee for the par 4/5's are hitting blind into a fairway due to the terrible set up, if you haven't played the course before your almost certain to drop a shot. The scorecard map was inaccurate aswell, not showing hazards and also giving you a false sense of where the fairway was! Leaves all over the greens and in one bunker the plastic lining was hanging out of the middle of the bunker! Lazy course managment to the extreme!
I have played this course a few times and i am seriously considering joining in the not to distant future! although not the longest or best course you may ever play it is extremely challenging and requires straight drives off the tee! also the clubhouse is excellent and the bar staff who i think are called roddie and michael are really friendly and make you feel welcome each and every time. I will definately be back!
Played this course last Thursday. Boggy would be an understatement. I was hitting drives which plugged on the fairway on a couple of holes. There was virtually no sand in the bunkers making them unplayable and some of the greens had big chunks missing out of them. The fringe around the greens was poorly maintained, the fairway grass was too long making it play just like your local football pitch on the park. It was £12 to play during the week and due to the poor condition of the course, I feel I overpaid.
In addition to this, as we were playing down the 8th, the young lad who worked in the shop plus a group of his friends decided it would be funny to drive balls from the grass outside the club shop all over the course. A few nearly hit us. Not the behaviour you expect from staff.
played this course on 26-6-09. very good value for money £16 for an adult and child.
the course itself was very short but skillfully designed. i would suggest it wouldnt really challenge the low handicapper too much but for us high handicappers (20) definately keeps us on our toes. didnt sample the 19th hole after the round so cant comment on that aspect of the club
as if its 2 different courses yet to intertwine as 1 nevertheless a great days golf if dry, as drainage is an issue. Its, best days are in the not to distant future, when maturity is reached.
Played the course at the weekend, looks quite easy on paper but play it yourself and you will be shocked, a fantastic challenge of golf and as for the comments about how muddy the course is, well what can i say, Ive played a hell of a lot worse, in fact after the amount of snow and rain we've had recently i was extremeley impressed with how the course has held up. Ok its a bit muddy in the rough and the pathways to the next tee after some holes but its dry enough where it matters, on the fairways and greens. So keep it down the middle and you will fine in the winter months and even if you don t keep it down the middle its not as bad as previous comments made by people. And as for the comments about not having to use the big gun as well, i would like to know who made these comments because i m not the shortest off the tee in the world and even off the winter tees it came out of my bag on a several occasions. After playing the course at the weekend i am seriously considering joining the club and looking forward to playing it over the summer months, the views are fantastic and the staff are extremely friendly.
This course has a real Jekyll and Hyde character. In the summer, its a fairweather golfers dream benefiting thoughtful, rather than powerful golf. Its quite short (4,577 yds with 7 par 3s), great for a quick 3 hour round late on a Sunday afternoon. Theres not much opportunity to use the big guns, but loads of opportunities to score well if you keep it straight. Like I said, when its sunny, its great. However, in the winter its not a pleasant place to be. The winter tee boxes are set up on platforms amidst a sea of mud and the pathways between holes are no better you really do have to see it to believe it! Theyve tried hard over the years to improve the course condition and its paid dividends on the fairways and greens but until the teeing grounds and pathways are improved, I wouldnt recommend playing this course until the sun shines. The clubhouse is good and the food and drink worth sticking around for.
I have just played Standish for the first time. 06/12/05. It was a little damp but they provide suitable trolleys for free. It was playable even after a lot of rain. It must be a very good summer venue. I didnt find it over challenging but a good short course for beginners and medium handicap golfers. It helps you find your range instead of relying on big hits all the time. Enjoyed it, staff friendly and super value. Will be back soon.
I have played the course regularly and it's in as a good condition as I've ever seen it. The fairways are great and the greens are playing extremely well at the moment. Although it is a short course it has a high difficulty rating and is NOT a pushover for the big hitters by any means. Accuracy and good "course management" are the order of the day.
The food and drink in the clubhouse are A1 and the staff are friendly and helpful. I agree with it not being a winter course but in summer it's a real gem.
played this course in winter very nice course but not one for the winter recommend you to play it in the spring/summer nice friendly place great food and excellent value
I think standish is a good course everything is 100 o/o
very nice course greens superb lost a couple of balls in the rough but found more when looking,staff are very friendly and the lager is a1 booked in straight away for the week after cant wait to go again.
A very much improved course. Greens are currently in tip-top condition. The Pride of Pendle is beer like it used to be - the best pint I've tasted for a long time!
A good enjoyable course, not overly long but rewards accuracy. All the par 3's are a good test, they are short but well protected by deep bunkers. The front nine is wide open and the back nine is more parkland, a couple of driveable par fours if you are accurate. The course is in good condition at the moment. well worth the money.
Please, please, please do not pay any attention to the later two comments, they were very true in there time. The course has now been taken over by new management who have spent, spent, spent. The drainage is now in great order, the fairways are like carpet, the bunkers are in tiptop condition (a few still need work), and the greens are the best they have been in years. The guy who bought the course also owns a brewery, he sells his guest ale in the clubhouse, which for real ale drinkers is a must 'Pride of Pendle' is the name. The course is a pleasure to play in the week, very well maintained and virtually unplayed during the week.
I have played as a beginner here for a while now.
The fairway bunkers have improved this year but the greens are in a poor state (large bare patches on a few). The kids are still all over the course. It is still a challenge for mid to high handicappers, and still value for money!!
A well designed Golf Course. Not long so therefore a good course for beginners.
BUT the drainage is awful and therefore the course is vitually unplayable for half of the year. The vast majority of fairway bunkers are GUR and have been for months - WHY? The pond on the 5th is always surrounded by kids trying to get balls. Also, too many societies are allowed at weekends, many of which pay no attention to the etiquete of golf
Overall, not recommended to serious golfers, fine for those who play once a year.
