5 reviews of Stinchcombe Hill Golf Club
The Course is nice - the members are snobs who hate paying visitors. If they had their way, visitors wouldn't be allowed. Except they're all too tight to pay £900 a year to be a member.
The steward is rude and miserable and behaves like you're really putting him out to ask him to serve you a drink. He didn't utter a word when he served me, not even courteous.
The waitresses are friendly though and the food is good - the only problem with the kitchen is its opening times. It doesn't stay open late enough in the summer, so if you want a round after work, followed by a portion of cheesy chips, forget it!
A real find. Breathtaking views from the hilltop and a really good challenge. Unusual layout in the centre of England, but choose a good weather day.
This is a gem of a course which sits on top of a hill providing spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. It is a walkers course with undulating fairways. When I played in May 02 it was in very good shape despite a week of bad weather; the fairways were lush, rough was penal but not high enough to lose balls, bunkers were in very good shape and the greens were medium fast. The course is short but dont let this stop you playing a round as many holes are very well designed and provide a tough test of golf. I was on a golfing holiday for 10 days in Gloucestershire from the US and played several high end courses only to find this the most memorable of my playing experiences. If I had played Stinchcombe Hill first rather than last I would have definitely come back for more.
As my home course I will appear biased but this really is a tough little golf course. Come and play in September to March and you'll be disappointed if you don't halve your handicap against the card but the rest of the year you'll do well to play to anywhere near your handicap, and when these greens are good they are among the best I have ever played on. The 5th and the 17th are among the best holes, short par 4's but par is a great score.
What a nice course,reasonably short but a good test of golf for all standards the greens are the best I have played on all year and very nice scenery looking out onto the severn estuary
