Played this course with my wife on a weekend away in December, course in excellent condition normal tees and greens. Greens especially good for winter, better than many courses i have played in the middle of summer.
Hotel good value with almost every room overlooking the course. Did have a slight problem with slow service in the Bar, but this was resolved very quickly and efficently as soon as i complained.
Will certainly be back.
I HAD A GREAT STAY AT THE HOTEL, AND THE GOLF COURSE WAS OF A VERY GOOD STANDARD, THE GREENS WERE EXCELLENT....TRUE AND QUICK. THE FAIRWAYS WERE MAINLY TREE-LINED AND ON THE WHOLE THE COURSE WAS A GOOD CHALLENGE FOR ANY STANDARD.
MY FIANCEE LOVED HER STAY AND BEING THAT I WAS A 'SINGLETON' GOLFER I WAS HOPING TO JOIN A FEW MEMBERS TO HOOK UP WITH.
THE PRO (MARC) WAS EXCEPTIONALY HELPFUL AND PAIRED ME UP FOR EACH OF THE 4 ROUNDS I PLAYED.
AND THE MEMBERS WERE VERY FRIENDLY.
ON THE WHOLE IF LOOKING FOR A BREAK WITH GOOD GOLF,AND SOMETHING 4 THE MISSUS -SPA,SWIMMING,SAUNA THE PACKAGE WAS VERY REASONABLE AND I SUGGEST GOING THROUGH THE HOTEL ITSELF AS WE GOT AN IDEAL 'DEAL'
**PS** ONLY COMPAINT I HEARD WAS THAT THE GREEN FEE WAS A LITTLE EXPENSIVE IF PLAYING 1 ROUND, BUT I BELIEVE THE COURSE OFFERS A 2 FORE 1 ,IN WHICH CASE IT IS GOOD VALUE
I played the front nine on a recent Friday afternoon for a remarkably low price and was really impressed. Despite being the hottest summer that I can remember since 1976, the greens were fantastic, very green, true and fast. Clearly no water shortage in Tewkesbury. My favourite holes were the short par-4 2nd, where you have to wack the ball through a gap between two tall trees, and the par-3 5th, where from the elevated tee you have to clear an attractive pond onto a small green. Note quite the 17th at Sawgrass, but probably as close as I will ever get. I look forward to returning and doing the full 18.
I have just played Tewkesbury Park with three friends whilst on a weekend break in the area. The service we received whilst booking was very good and were able to use 2-fore-1 vouchers, even on a bank holiday weekend (even though there were only two tee times left and we booked 5 days previous).
I found the course to be interesting and challenging and the previous years problems with the greens seems to have been eradicating with only a few of them showing some minor bare patches. There are some interesting holes and some of the views are very pleasant on the eye. The only area that I can critisise is the standard of the rough. Playing off 26 I tend to hit the rough quite often and we all agreed that it is too harsh, especially on the back 9. The rough is 2-3 balls deep, straight from the fairway and is covered with old grass cuttings which meant big hold ups looking for lost balls. We weren't however holding up the people behind us because they seemed to be having the same problem!
If they sorted this one (very annoying) problem then the course would be highly recommended. I thought that £35 a round was a little steep but using the 2-fore1's made it a very good deal.
Thanks for the feedback guys, as you say we had a very difficult start to the year, particulary on the greens which suffered badly with disease over the winter I am sorry you didn't have a better round. I am glad to say things got much better and now back to normal! Thanks for your kind comments Ian with reference to the food and service in the hotel.

I have just played Tewkesbury Park with a friend and have to say that the whole experience was a disappointment. It was a very hot day and there had been very little rain so we were expecting conditions to be dry and bare. However, the whole course seems to be suffering from a lack of TLC. The greens were in an awful state and we were not told about it until I overheard someone ask the person in the pro shop about them. He replied that they could be better!
I could go on about the tees, fairways etc. but I think you get the picture. It is one of those courses that you know could be so much better if someone was prepared to put more time and care into it.
Have just returned from a 2 day break playing both the Sunday and Monday. Hotel and food was excellant, service from both bar and restaurant was very good. Even great weather.
The course however left us feeling cheated of having a great weekend. Great layout with some interesting and testing holes, even a couple where the big hitters could have a go, Course and venue was totally let down by the condition of the greens. The worse greens I have ever seen in my 15 years of playing golf. Being Early April we would have expected the greens to be at a "recovering from winter" state, a little patchy and bumpy maybe. We were however not expecting to be playing on "rolled" bunkers, the greens were covered with a layer of sand to the point that the only green that could be seen was the overgrown patches which ironically a notice on the changing room board said we could get free relief from. They would not hold when playing approach shots into them, "even with 60 degree lob wedges", and putting was a farce as the sand made the greens so hign on the stimp meter even Augusta would have been no match for them.
Shame that our Spring competition (which I won, so am not complaining as a sore loser) should be decided by the "luck" of which grain of sand kicked your chip/putt on of off line.
All of the above would have been more bearable if somebody would have even an the forthought to mention it before we started playing.
Well ive played at Both Tewkesbury Park and Puckrup Hall plenty of times and i can say that Puckrup is a far tougher course. Fair enough the greens may not be in as good a condition right now but allround its alot more challenging and enjoyable.
Thanks for feedback Allen you may have caught us on a bad day, but rest assured we will be looking at the bar service.
Fantastic course which will attract any golfer regardless of their standard of play. A very nicely laid out course, with superb views of the gorgeous area. The course is relatively open which does allow wayward drives not to be punished as much as they could be - however I would suggest that as the course continues to mature driving will become much tighter and more demanding in the years to come. Three things however do let the club down. Firstly the standard of the greens and the bunkers. Both suffer badly; the greens are so inconsistent in grass length and speed whilst the quality of the bunkers make each shot a sure lottery. Lastly the service at the bar. As every golfer will know the most enjoyable aspect of any golf course has to be the 19th. Tewkesbury lets itself down in this department very badly - Pity because you would expect so much more from a hotel of this quality. On the whole a great round of golf.
An excellent parkland course displaying a lovely mix of many varieties of trees, some very old, some qite young which means this course will get tighter with each passing year. This is the fifth Gloucestershire course our society has played and just beat Cotswold Hills into second place with maybe Puckrup Hall being third. Excellent greens showing around 9 on the stimpmeter. The bunkers were well placed but not so well kept, some had lots of sand, some very little which makes the bunker play a bit of a lottery. The course lacks a few features, when approaching the pro shop and the first tee there is a delightful show of shrubs and conifers but once away from this area the only feature of note is the small lake in front of the 5th green.
Splendid views from every part of the course but especially when sitting on the patio outside the spike bar where a wonderful panoramic view of the Cotswold and the Malvern Hills can be seen.
The staff were helpful and courteous but service behind the bar was somewhat slow, especially when local golfers mixed with society visitors.
I would recommend this course to visiting societies, value for money is well represented, for the mid to low handicappers a fair challenge off the white tees and for the higher handicappers there are enough holes to make it enjoyable with several holes to stretch you and a couple (notably the 4th and 13th)which may well ruin your card. Don't be fooled by the distance of the 5th par 3 hole, it plays every inch it's length.
20 members of the legendary Chilwell Cricket Club golf society spent 2 days at Tewkesbury Park in April 2000. The course was very enjoyable, though tough when the wind was strong! Two of the par 3's are quite long - tip for the par 3 16th - use about as much club as you've got, ignore the yardage. On the 250 yard par 4 18th, if you're not going for the green with your tee shot then you might as well lay up with a mid-iron to avoid getting caught up in the fir trees which sit short and right of the green.
Another tip - if you want to hit a few balls on the range before you start, take a sherpa and a packed lunch! It's quite a climb back up the hill to get to the first tee. You're probably better off on the putting green - the greens were quick and in good nick. Only disappointment was very slow service in the main hotel bar. The bar in the leisure club was a bit better.
