11 reviews of The Bulbury Woods Club

Course is in a shocking condition. The greens have been newly irrigated by an amateur gardener and left them unplayable. The new irrigation ditches are an eye sore, and cut across the fairways in places that do not enhance the game ( e.g. 39 yards from the tee box on a Par 3). The staff were unhelpful, somewhat short, and had no food on offer on a sunny afternoon. Not surprised the place was deserted. Green keeper followed us round on his mower for 5 holes - it's just so easy to avoid disturbing golfers, as they do at every other course, by mowing the hoed in reverse.
The place used to be a delight, everything has become "lazy", and I shall not be revisiting.
What a shame.

Our Society of 16 were able to play here on a busy September Saturday. Our noon tee time did mean we initially struggled for car park places but soon there were a stream of players who had clearly started very early that morning returning to their cars so a potentially very real problem was avoided.The members were very helpful indeed.

We got off promptly and the pace of play was reasonable given the number of players on the course. No big holdups just a slowish 4 and a quarter hour round.

The course is fairly tight being played continuously through the woods so if you are going to be able to come in with a reasonable score you do need to keep it straight!The greens were nicely presented and ran true. Not a particularly exciting course to play.

Our pre ordered sandwiches were tasty, delivered promptly and with a smile.

First time I've played the course and really enjoyed it, greens were in exceptional condition and played among some of the very best ive played and i've played at celtic manor previously. Some views are fantastic and all staff offer a welcoming feel. Will certainly be playing again.

This is another club I have played for the seconf time. I played terribly but I thought it was a delightful course. I was ready for going around again at the end.
It has it's challenges. but it was a great course to end the Jolly Boys annual tour on.
Think this course will remain on the list.

A nice course with some great testing holes. A poor tee shot on the 8th and 9th can all destroy anyones card. The food and drink served by Ian and his wife is superb.

played this last week and was a bit disappointed having read some of the other reviews. Greens were OK but the layout is a bit bland with only good use of trees and ditches making up for an otherwise pretty up & down course. Not long either. Also they had 1 temp green in play which wasnt indicated when we arrived, most other holes had temps ready so I would guess they come into play a lot when wet.
There were 3 or 4 holes where for the 1st timer a good tee shot could be badly punsished even though it looked to be in 'position A'.
Only saving grace was a birdie at the last that halved the match

I played this course on 15 June in scorching hot weather and thoroughly enjoyed it. Its fairly straight, with a couple of interesting dog leg holes that makes it a challenging course for beginners.
Food and beer served afterwards were also good

I visited this course in June 2001, despite having read the many comment mentioned above.....How wrong they are. I found this to be one of the most enjoyable courses i've ever played. No two holes are the same, offering a variety of challenges,and the greens were superb, and very testing. At the club house, the staff were very friendly, and helpful. Food was also very good. All in all we had a great day, and will definately return.

Played 03/07/01. Very good course for all levels of golfer. Found staff very helpfull and friendly. Green staff (including owner) out all day tending the greens and fairways, but did not get in the way of golfers. Well worth playing if down in that neck of the woods.

With 3 friends I played this course on 28 Aug - somewhat apprehensively in view of earlier
comments. In the event we found it to be a first class club with excellent facilities and we were
welcomed and helped by everyone we came into contact with. Fairways, greens and bunkers were all
well maintained and in impeccable condition. There is good variation in the holes requiring the
player to think what to use off the tee. I have no hesitation in recommending this club, and playing
on 2 for 1 vouchers, and having travelled 50 miles to play it, I can honestly say we had a great day
out and excellent value. Go for it....
