5 reviews of Tilsworth Golf Centre
Played at Tilsworth in an Inter-club match and had a lovely day. The course was playing well and was a fair test of golf.
The course is quite short and has a few blind tee shots as well as a couple of holes one up a steep slope followed by one coming down the same slope and this wil test your fitness!
The lack of signage between holes can be an issue of you are new to the course as there are some treks between a few holes.
The clubhouse is fine, the food and drinks very good and the staff very friendly and efficient.
5 minutes from work I can be found here to fit in 18 holes most weeks between April and September (at £11 it's not the end of the world if you don't beat the sunset)
Make no mistake, It's a practice course. The driver stays in the bag except 2 or 3 holes and most greens are only a mid iron followed by a wedge. Don't think that makes it an easy course though. Most holes you have to place carefully and really think about what you want from each shot. Somebody who takes on this course will inevitably be beaten (consider yourselves warned!)
Always in good condition although the lower section suffers from standing water after a lot of rain.
As with many courses, if you like a pleasant stress free game avoid weekend mornings - We play midweek evenings as a 2 ball and sometimes are the only people on the course.
Decent clubhouse and proshop along with a better than average driving range makes this a highly recommended golf club.
Finally, if you don't like walking up very (very) steep hills, hire a buggy!
This was my first visit here and allthow the course was in good shape, i found it hard to see witch hole i was playing next. many of the holes are very close togever and it was easy to find your-self on the wrong fairway.
Nice course but needs more sighns for next tees and greens.
My first impression of the course was a good one. The greens are well maintained, and the fairway and rough were well trimed. The course provides a challenge in numeous ways. With some approch shots you can't expect the ball to stay on line with the pin with out vast amounts of spin to stop the ball rolling off the other side of the green. With some of these shots you have to be inventful. I had a problem with the amount of blind shots you have to take. All you have is a pole stuck in the ground to aim at, and most of the time i wouldnt of wanted to aim there. Unless you know the course, you cant stategicaly aim very much. Another problem i had was finding my way around the course. The greens dont lead on to the next tee at all. For someone who doesnt know the course, it is very possible to walk to the wrong tee or in the path of someones shot. Even though there are faults, i enjoyed the challenge and the sights. A well kept, beautiful course. But i do advise for someone new to it, to go round with someone who knows it. And for the record, this course has golfers of all levels and ages so it seems to be open to all. An enjoyable experiance.
A pleasant course although rather short. There are some tricky holes, a lot having a blind tee shot. It is quite hilly, the 5th going straight up a steep hill. The course was generally in good condition.
