7 reviews of Wath Golf Club

Played this course numerous times and its always a pleasure to play. It is always in the best condition it can be with great greens and well manicured fairways although it does tend to get a little boggy in the winter. The pro shop welcome has always been friendly as has the clubhouse's. The course itself is challenging enough with a decent mix and variety in holes and is generally tight with tree's lining the fairways although the foilige and rough isnt severe. The course is generally flat but does have a few raised tee boxes and inclines. The one critisism i would have is that there are too many cross over holes and holes that run side by side. It all leads to you feeling a little cramped and the danger from stray balls has been evident on a few visits ive made. Its a great little course in all fairness, just one to enjoy at quieter times maybe.

Great little course which although looks quite short on the scorecard at just 6300 yards - but actually plays much longer. There are 5 Par 3's and 3 Par 5's and 3 or 4 really long Par 4's (450 yards). You will play must clubs in the bag around Wath.

Several people mention the course is flat! Have they really played Wath, there are several quite severe elevation changes - The Par 3 15th hole is played from around 10 meters above the green. The Par 4 10th is played from a tee some 10 meters above the fairway etc etc. Some of the fairways are quite undulating as well which can help drainage in the winter.

Signature hole is definitely the 15th - a cracking Par 3 over water to a large green that you can hit 3 different clubs to depending where the pin is - don't lose the ball right as the pond lies all the way to the right of the green.

Overall - this is a nice course - one of the best in the area. Food is excellent in the club house - pro shop is small but reasonably well stocked.

Played the course at the end of September, mid-week.
The course is a good, varied and interesting layout - cant understand some of the other reviews of this course - it is certainly not flat!!.
The par 3's on the course are all excellent with good use of water & bunkering.
The general condition of the course was excellent with the greens in particularly good condition.
There are practice facilities but they are basic and the pitching area is right next to the car park - its worth the extra 50p for insurance.
The course plays at its best during the summer but a word of warning if you're playing after bad weather - drainage is a problem during wet weather and the course is often closed.
I have played the course numerous times before but this was my first visit this year and unfortunatley the club must not want vsiting golfers - the last time we played it costs £20 for 2 palyers on the 2 for 1 scheme - this has now increased to £36 for 2 players and interestingly, if you play on your own they only charge £18.50 - come on chaps, how is that 2 for 1???
Its very sad to see such a good course do this and they really do need a reality check as it now costs more to play here than at for example Hickleton, which is only a few minutes drive away and a far better course for the money on the voucher scheme.
If you are a single golfer playing on your own then at £18.50 its reasonable 6-7/10 value, but if you are using vouchers there are now better courses nearby for the money.

Paid £13.00 with a 2fore1 voucher so that wasn't too bad.
This is a well maintained tidy little course with some nice aesthetics on some parts of the course. ( spoiled by a bloody great national grid power line and pylons running right down the centre of the course )
The 15th hole is probably the signature hole! lovely little par three crossing over a pond with water clear enough to see the fish in.
All in all Wath isnt a bad course. like all flat courses though, it does lack variety. There is after all only so much you can do with flat land.
One more thing to note! Wath is a very busy course. A friend of mine described it as being "as busy as Tesco's on friday teatime" he's not wrong.
A personal rating for Wath would be 5-10 or in other words "average"

Played this cousre as a 4 ball we were visitors,on bank holidaymonday,ist impressions were what a course, and we were not dissapointed, the members on the course were helpful and put us at ease, we offered them to play in front of us, the course is a great layout with the best true greens i have seen for a long timee, yes at times the greens are small but if you think about your shots you can still attack the greens,the windy conditions contributed to this challenge, with the front nine being fairly long at 3100 yards, with 3 par 3s to come on the back nine,very scenic in places and the clubhouse is one of the best with a great varity of hot food,coffee and plenty of beers, once again we were made very welcome even after having the rules pointed out to us, we were very comfortable in these nice surroundings, having a spot of lunch thaving played the 1st 10 holes, the nback out for our "skins" game all in all a mus tvisit cours, very friendly and lots of information, nice to see a club that care about your visit, as well as keeping the members happy, we look forward to returning, only down side is they dont take visitors on a weekend, which makes our 4ball difficult to get time off work through the midweek, highly recommended PAUL PUNTER

Pleasant,gentle walking,course.Appears deceptively
easy at first glance,but has some small greens,
resulting in higher scores than expected.Marvellous views from the club house,almost all the course can be seen.
