26 reviews of Uxbridge Golf Course
Last played Uxbridge around 5/6 years ago when it was 18 individual holes of golf. Much of the original charm remains however a distinct lack of investment has, unfortunately, taken its toll. Good 'original' holes 9 - 14 have been lost with some of the greens that remain resembling a fourth day Test wicket with cracks offering the bowlers plenty. Sadly, they offer the golfers little! On the positive there were few golfers on the course on a pleasant Saturday afternoon.
I fear that if the above issues are not addressed that in a further 5/6 years the rest of the course may succumb to the fate of holes 9 -14 (which would be a shame)
I have played Uxbridge a few times but this time was the worst yet! (played on 11/3/12)
You couldnt really tell the fairways from the rough, the bunkers had grit & stones in them that would chivvy up your clubs and the greens were some of the worst Ive played on! You were lucky if the ball ran straight due to all the lumps! I wont even start on the uneven Tee boxes!
i know its only £12 a round because you have to play the first 6 holes twice, but we gave up affter 12 holes as it wasnt fun anymore!!
Steer clear until some major work has gone into the course!!
used to play Uxbridge quite often - a course with character and some interesting holes and some pretty tough ones. In recent years, as a number of holes are undergoing 'maintenance', I have been put off returning as you now have to play the first 6 holes twice to make up the full round. Eventually, the lure of seeing what the course was now like, along with a cheap green fee, was too enticing.....
The course used to be busy, a horde of activity and well maintained (drainage issues not withstanding) but I saw little evidence of a thriving club. Apparently, it is now council-run and, to be honest, looks a bit unloved. The pro shop was literally empty, the majority of the bunkers had grass and weeds in them and the greens were mottled and some even bare in patches. The fairways themselves were in good condition but maybe that was at least partially due to the lack of traffic nowadays ?
Course condition aside, there are still a number of memorable holes - the 1st - a gentle par 4, out of bounds on the right and plays up to a small green, which is difficult to hit with your approach. The 2nd hole is a par 3 from an elevated tee, so makes club choice interesting. The 8th is a tough old slog ! Par 5, uphill, with the 2nd/ 3rd shots from a fairway that slopes away (for a right hander) and then up to a very small green.
I paid £12 for a Sunday round, so excellent value at that price. I will keep a keen eye on reviews of Uxbridge but I fear it's slide will continue.......
Course has improved greatly since i played last year. Course is cut nicely greens are running smooth and true, pro shop staff are very friendly and overall great place to play
Be warned - 6 holes are being rebuilt / repaired.
you can still play 18 but you have to play the first six twice.
Those who have played in the past know how wet the course can be between 12 to 16
To their credit the green fee is reduced.
Sorry to disagree with some of the previous comments, but I thought this was a poor course, even at £16. 50% of the greens were mottled, bare and bumpy, little space between individual holes and all a bit samey. Greens didn't hold at all - I hit in wedges from the fairway which just disappeared off the back. Rough was very thick and if your ball was only a yard off line it was a matter of luck if you found it; I don't disagree with punishing off line shots but you need to differentiate between 1 yard off the fairway and 20 yards off. Needless to say builders compacted sand in the bunkers. The course was difficult but for all the wrong reasons!
Played here November 07 (£8 after 1 p.m).
Better than average municipal.First time i have played here for about 10 years & the course hasn't changed one bit.Uxbridge differs from other municipals in that there are lots of elevation changes (usually i find that munis tend to be fairly flat) to the extent that there are only 3 level holes.
Most of the holes tend to be straight & there are 3 doglegs.I feel that the course could undergo a bit of modernisation as there is virtually no fairway bunkering & the fairway bunkering that there is is fairly basically contructed & not really positioned to catch shots.(The fairway bunker on the 1st doesn't catch drives or 2nd shots).
Seven of the par 4's are less than 351 yards but the courses defence is that nearly half the greens are on slopes.The best stretch of holes are 7 to 14 .There are par 3's at 11,12 &14 & before you know it you're almost home.We had a clear run & shot round in just over 2 1/2 hours.
When we played the greens had been very heavily sanded & looked more like "browns".Although they putted reasonably, visually they were the worst looking greens i've seen this winter.
Overall, this course is quite good fun,nicely laid out & there is a good variety of interesting holes.
I have only been playing golf for around one year and recently been having a few lessons with Phil Howard at Uxbridge (who I recommend) but only played the course for the first time this week. I found the course challenging and very hilly. I had a buggy as I was playing with my Father, who had a heart operation some years ago, and I was really pleased as he wouldn't have been able to walk it. I really enjoyed the elevated tees and greens on a couple of the par 3's and felt there was a good mix of holes. The greens could have been better though. Definitely had a great day only gripe would have to be the club house, tried to order some food but the staff weren't very friendly so we left.
A very challenging but enjoyable course. Quite hilly and you certainly feel it when you walk off the 18th. A well maintained course with very friendly staff.
An excellent course - not particularly long but still challenging ! A good variety of holes.....
A couple of par 3s from elevated tees and also an elevated green makes you think a bit. Also, a couple of the longer holes are uphill, effectively adding length and a couple of holes have very sloping fairways.
Alas, the greens aren't always great and the course can get a bit boggy during the winter months.
Overall - I enjoy this course as it does provide a difference from a lot of the other options in the West London area, in particular the nearby Ruislip.
£24 for a weekend round.
lovely course, short but challenging for all handicaps.greens generally in great condition but every now and again you can catch them in poor condition! but greenkeepers are always working hard to keep this course in good condition.
One of the best public golf course in the West of London. Apart from a flooded hole straight after heavy rain, the course was fantastic. To be recommanded
An attractive course but it was not in great condition this wekend.
Fairways OK but seriousley pockmarked with unrepaired divot marks.
Greens looked diseased with too many bobbly bare patches.
One final comment - the Pin positions were worthy of the last day on the US Open - in one case less than a putter length from the fringe!
(Please note this is not sour grapes - course was playing very short and a gross round of 1 over was the result)
This is one of the best public golf courses I have played. It is always in mint condition with some of the best greens on any course letalone for a public course. Teamed with friendly staff and a very reasonalbe weekend rate I would recomend this golf course to anyone.
Played the course yesterday (25.06.03) with a small society. The earlier comments about the state of the greens appear to have been taken up by the club. I have yet to play on better parkland greens and they have obviously benefited from the recent heavy night rainfall. They are both fast and holding and beautifully consistent. One only has to look at the practice green to be impressed. The rest of the course is in good condition and playing fair again helped by the rain and the softer conditions.
I have only played this course once and on that occasion the greens were fine and the whole course in excellent condition. One of the best municipals I have played.
Quite a challenging course to both your skill and endurance but great fun. I will definitely be back again. Great uphill par 3 with two huge trees protecting the front of the green.
Having taken up Golf only a year ago and having played a few local courses, myself and a group of other amatures from JSU Northwood decided to try Uxbridge. Well what can i say, on behalve of myself and friends we found the course to be both interesting and challenging, especially hole 9. A good varied variety of holes, we found the course very good. Even though the wheels fell off my game coming to the 10th and loseing my ball, I still enjoyed the back 9 holes. We have decided to use this course regularly and hope to enjoy more games in the near future.
After reading "players comments" about uxbridge, i organised a small society group to play there. The course itself is very demanding with undulating fairways and many uphill holes. However, the fairways were not that well maintained and the greens were an absolute joke, in fact a disgrace. Every player commented that it was near enough impossible to one putt because of the condition. In fact two putting was an achievement. If the club can sort out its greens, uxbridge will be a great course and compared to most courses in the surrounding areas, it is unique in its design.
One of west London's best kept secrets - an appealing course with a nice selection of holes, all in reasonably good condition. Can get slow at weekends but you expect that on a public course. Great value.
This was the worst maintained course it has been my misfortune to play on, reading other comments maybe i caught it at the wrong time. Most of the fairways consisted of 3 inch deep grass and if you strayed off the fairway forget it! you can't even find your ball let alone play it. I can see what a good course this could be but in it's present condition it was unplayable.
Very good quality and very tough public course. Fairly gentle start leads to some tough holes. For me, the best feature of this course are the very tough greens. They are fast by public course standard and a bugger to read. What out for the short 12th !! Gets very very busy as most good public courses do. A bit of course control would be welcome.
At the ridiculous times of the morning my colleagues & I have played this course we have always found this course tough but enjoyable. The third and fourth suffer due to the constant building noise from over the hedge. The undulating fairways offer a challenge to any golfer with the ball never being level with your feet (if you search the hedges you will find my colleagues clubs which will confirm this).
The clubhouse food is a disapointment with a minimum amount of effort made by the staff.
Avoid the course early morning as their are too many dodgy printers hacking around.
Very well kept course, with long Par 4's. But I must state, whoever designed the course must have been in the French Foreign Legion, especially Cardiac Hill and the 18th. But good fun!
This is a very reasonably priced, well kept course, with some challenging long par fours, and good-fun short par threes as well. Friendly reception in both the pro-shop and the clubhouse, which serves good, reasonably priced food. A "twilight golf round" (after 2.30 midweek) is good value at £7.00.
Lovely course that tests physical endeavour and golfing skill. Well kept and excellent value, one of the best public courses in Northern London.
