Not the most...luxurious of courses, from what I can tell it's ran by a chap and his wife and the facilities are very basic, an office to sign in that has a few soft drinks and some choccy bars, a loo and that's it. However, the welcome is friendly and cost for a round is cheap; £16 for 18 holes on a Saturday. The course has a lot of very heavy rough and a fair few water traps so definitely one for the straight hitters. The front nine is shortish and sometimes a little maze like between holes (a friend referred to the course as "Hampton Court golf club") but there are a couple of stand out holes on the front nine, the 6th which has a drive over a large lake lined with trees and the 9th which is a short 9 hole with a small green with a hedge to the back and a water trap at the front. The back nine is not as interesting being a rather more open in the main but the downhill par 5 is difficult and spectacular and the 18th is a short par 4 with a raised green with trees to one side and water to the front. All in all it's a basic and a little 'rough and ready' course and the greens leave quite a lot to be desired but for the cost it's good value and has some added bonuses as the owner is very keen on keeping the course wildlife friendly; when I last played there we had the wonderful site of red kites swooping over us at the top of the hill. Cautiously recommended as long as you're not expecting Augusta!
I have been playing Stilton for about six months now returning to golf after a 20 year layoff .
When you look at the scorecard the course looks short and relativly easy, but ignore the long rought at your peril.As most people who play it know it falls into two different 9 hole courses .The first nine are short and flat with enough water involved to keep it interesting(8 par 4's 1 par 3).The second nine combine hills and water with great views(2 par 5's,6 par 4's and 1 par 3).
The whole course is very tight, benifitting the straight hitter, with only a few grassy bunkers(and the rough of course).There are a few hedges that come into play around the course with the "do I try to hit over them or go for the gap in them" scenario.Long hitters will be able to drive some of the par 4's .The clubhouse is adequate having a small shop and toilets (but if you want to play golf not socialise afterwards this is your type of course !!!)
Overall this is a very new course that is a MUST to play offering great value for money as well as a challenge to golfers of all handicaps.
Enjoyed the course. Very friendly, excellent for beginners - good value for money.
I've played this course 3 times. At the moment, it's condition is quite good considering the very dry weather we've had. The traps are a bit stoney, but luckily I've not been in too many so far! Make sure you get out on the front 9 with a good score, because it gets much tougher on the way in. Watch out for the 17th par 5 - the fairway slopes hugely from right to left and is intersected by hedge which seems a long way off, but is reachable because of the downhill tee shot.
All in all, it's good fun until you get in the strategically placed VERY heavy rough!
I played at stilton golf course for the first time the other day and it wasn't the best course i've played on but it was one of the cheapest so it was good value for money. The only problem i had was with the sand bunkers which seemed the be gravel but apart from that it was very good.
