14 reviews of Whitewebbs Park Golf Course

I played a twilight round yesterday and must say I was not too impressed with the course. The fairways were in dire need of a cut and the layout of the course was very perplexing. Without adequate signage, locating the next tee is difficult.
I prefer courses which are well kept and offer variations with its contours and slopes. Whitewebbs was too flat, overgrown and above all unkempt.
The one good point I can make is that the course is very forgiving for high handicappers as the fairways offer good width.
The cost of the twilight round is fair, but I rather pay a little extra to go elsewhere. It's definitely not for me.

Played at the weekend and it was one of the slowest rounds ever, almost three hours for the front nine. We were never going to get round before dark so asked the pro if we could play the front nine again he agreed.
The staff were great let us play the front nine twice because of a slow pace of play and were very understanding when we missed our initial tee time because of traffic.
The front nine offered a nice variety of holes nothing spectacular or particularly hard but all interesting and adequately maintained for the price.
Greens were slow but generally in ok condition tee boxes and fairways were fine. The back nine looked like elevation changes were going to come into play but sadly we never found out.
Liked the course but won’t return because of the difficulty of getting there and the agonisingly slow pace of play at the weekends.

I've played this course a number of times over the last few months, but mainly because its nearby and its cheap. Make no mistake, this is not a jewel in golf's crown, but it does provide somewhere for average-or-worse golfers to improve their game.
Good points: While it may only be simple parkland, there are no eyesores to spoil the view. The course will suit beginners or higher handicappers with its generous fairways and lack of really difficult or threatening holes. Green fees are good value, especially for twilight rounds. The pro shop is a simple yet friendly establishment, and there are opportunites for a cuppa, both before you tee off and later on after the turn. No driving range, but there is a practice green ahead of the first tee.
Bad points: The tees are not necessarily well looked after, some have their markers missing, yard markers are sometimes inaccurate or absent, and generally sign-age around the course is poor. If you dont know where your going to get to the next tee, its not always obvious. Greens are slow, plagued by 'bobbles', and generally inconsistent from one hole to the next. Did I mention the greens are really really slow? Bunkers are a lottery - Some have sand, some seemingly just dirt and stones - and good luck finding a rake.
The general impression is that with a little bit of maintenance this could become a nice course to play. Accomplished players will not have too much trouble here, but it's just enough for ordinary players to be tested. If you can live with the greens, you'll enjoy a round at Whitewebbs and have enough change in your pocket for a drink afterwards

This is a good course for beginners. They accept 2-4-1, so it is great value. At weekends, best to start very early or at lunch-time. My favourite hole is the 2nd, par 4. Not busy at all during weekdays.
During winter, it is indeed quite muddy and the greens are poorly maintained. So you have 2b pretty motivated to get through.
Have a good round.

The overall condition of course was very good only let down by the poor tee`s.£14 was good value,play was a bit slow due to pensioner`s on a day out taking forever and they forgot to let quicker players through.Not a long course but still proves a challenge for the average golfer.I definately would play again.

A very poorly maintained course. The tees in particular are scabby and poorly marked. It irritates me that a course like this insists on a dress code but neglects the course itself. For a lesson in how to maintain and promote a municipal course they should head up to Peterborough to see Thorpe Wood or Orton Meadows. These are courses that understand that the municipal course player is less interested in what other players are wearing and more interested in a golf course that has repsect for them as golfers. At Whitewebbs I was asked to wear a shirt with a collar. This is not the 1950s nor is it Augusta National. I could stomach the dress code if the course had received the merest hint of any care and maintenance but, as I said, the tees are scabby, the greens are woolly and the fairways poorly defined. It is symptomatic of what is wrong with a lot of golf courses in England.

Played this course on a Sunday and...oh dear! Slow slow slow but I guess a municipal course is always going to be like that. As with the previous comments a lot of the bunkers are taken out of play by even average golfers like myself. Also some of the back nine holes are crossed by a stream and would, I think, benefit from the tees being moved forward so that at least the question "shall I go for it" is asked rather than always laying up. The greens are, as mentioned, incredibly slow and the general condition not good. At £17 a round I thought it was not great value for money either but beggars can't be choosers! Won't be going back.

Fairly average muni in good nick but very slow greens. I felt like using a wedge on some putts to get it to the hole! Not many notable holes and some wasted bunker placements. Seems set up more to ensure speed of play than as a test of golf. Good value tho at £13.50 weekdays and quiet in the afternoons.

Easy course, partucularly after the 'renovations' but I scored 117 because truly, I am the worst golfer never to have won a major.

Fair to say that for a municipal course this one is above average. There are a few holes which are "up & down" but there's plenty of trees to keep you happy. The old nine are definitely the best and for £12.50 midweek its worth it. The comments below hint to avoid the weekends - thats good advice unless you dont mind slow play.

Fairways are fairly wide and therefore very forgiving for wayward drives. Fairway & Greens are pretty average/poor. Front 9 is relatively flat and wide but back 9 is defintely more challenging with the river in play affecting four holes. Course gets VERY BUSY on Sundays and a round can easily take up to five hours. Always encounered bottleneck on hole 2 and 7. The Cafe on the 11th is never open on Sunday afternoon so bring pretty of refreshments! (I don't play during weekdays so don't know if it opens at all!). Overall, a fair course suitable for relatively new golfers (if you can stand the long waits).

Since the last posting here the course has been changed. The first used to be a par 4 next to the cafe, the first is now a par 3 which has stopped the hold ups. The course is still the same and plays very well.
The new enterance to the course can be found by going past the old entrance (with The King and Tinker pub on your right)for approx .75 of a mile taking the first right after taking the sharp bend in the road. Follow this road for approx 0.5 of a mile with access being sign posted on the right.
In general the course can hold water in winter, but this is made up for by its wide fairways and views.

Good beginners course can get very busy in summer especially at the 2nd Hole (Par 3) with up to 4 groups queueing. Otherwise a pleasant parkland course
