10 reviews of Whittlebury Park Golf and Country Club
Played this course a few times over last couple of years. Excellent facility's three 9 hole loops on the main course plus superb 9 hole academy course. Driving range and short game area. Very friendly staff in clubhouse, and proshop. All three main courses I would describe as ok, greens and tee boxes very good. But it should be noted that this is strictly a summer course, played it in the winter and its without doubt the WORST draining course I've ever played, bunkers like swimming pools, fairways all flooded, and the weather hadn't been that bad. ONLY VISIT IN THE SUMMER.
Brilliant golf course, great value, the breakfast was brilliant and the staff within the clubhouse were very kind and helpful,the clubhouse was brilliant, no complaints. The course was in brilliant condition which was surprising because of its amazing prices greens and the greenary around the course and clubhouse looked fabulous. Definately worth the money and recommend it to everyone!
Really nice coursed let down by poor club management. A huge clubhouse but the toilets were not clean and the breakfast was poor. Some staff were great bit others clearly do not care. All my society members said they would not go back despite the superb courses and keen pricing.
Whittlebury consists of 3 9 hole course and a very good par 3 acedemy course. I used to be a member here so I cannot comment on the Hotel and SPA (though judging by the value of some of the motors in the main car park, its no Premier Inn) but the courses are very good.
My main reason for joining was the condition of the greens which are excellent thorughout the year on all courses.
All 3 tracks have different features:
The Yellow course has some challenging approach shots in particular the 1st (huge tree right side of the green), 7th (rasied and contoured green) and 9th (deceiptively long).
The Red has 3 approach shots over water and some accurate driving is required. Be warned - if you tee off on the Reds, the 1st means you have to drive 200 yards to the waters edge and then aim right and a big carry over the water to the green. Also water on the 2 par 3's and a par on the par 4 5th is a very good result.
Blue course is argueably the hardest of the 3 due to the lateral and water hazards in which you will certainly loose balls if you stray off the short grass. Standout holes are the 2 par 5's and the par 3's.
Its a great course all round, the staff are polite and efficient, the new clubhouse is a real gem. £35 quid a round at weekends for 18 holes. Good value.
Played Red & Blue combinations on County Card scheme in pleasant July conditions - no wind, but the open Red course could be much tougher as it's openmess would make it very prone to winds. Clever modern design, plenty of tricky doglegs with water prominent and large target greens. Playing Red gave the impression of golf in a field, but the blue was much more sheltered and individual - a nicer but harder test too. Par threes were all testing. The Blue goes close to Silverstone circuit and the noise from the cars was debilitating - shame. Putting Green miles from the starting holes- why?
Offcourse they have spent a fortune - nice, but how will they ever get a return on their investment? Staff all friendly & helpfull, especially the Caddymaster.
Played 36 holes here a couple of days ago. Given that the the preious 48 hours had sen torrential rain the course was in amazing conditions. Granted some of the bunkers were full of water (and I mean full!), the fairways were excellent and the greens true and reasonably quick - huge credit to the greenkeepers.
In the morning we played yellow and red, the afternoon red and blue. There is a good mixture of holes with water coming on to play on a few. There is scope to be a little wayward off the tees, without being severely punished.
The off-course facilities were first class. Superb changing facilities, bar/restuarant etc. Overall an imposing club house with good food and a warm welcome.
Finally with a 2-fore-1 voucher the day ticket cost each of us just £25.
If you get the opportunity I would recommend a visit here anytime
I played the Red and Blue courses at the weekend and had a fantastic time. The course was in great condition, and the man-size greens were particularly good. The staff in the pro shop were very helpful and gave us great advice as to how to get the most out of our visit. The buggy with 'Sat Nav' was brilliant fun and worth the £15 for the round.
Would highly recommend it to anyone, especially if the wind isnt quite as blustery as it was at the weekend!
Played the red & blue courses(18 holes)on 16/05/05, both in excellent condition, greens are supurb & true. Good test of golf and some daunting shots over water for the short hitter!
Lot of building work still going on, they seem to be throwing money at this place, it looks very plush & upmaket but all the staff are down to earth & approachable. Only cost us £10 on 2fore1, absolute bargain!
Played the Red and Blue courses on a windy Saturday in September. Both courses in fabulous condition with tees, greens and fairways excellent. Clubhouse was fantastic with only a small amount of building work left to complete. Worth a visit from any standard of golfer. Course keeps you on your toes the complete round with holes for big hitters and accurate players.
Played society golf there yesterday. Course in great shape for mid april, the greens seemed to be of varying pace but that was probably my poor putting. Excellent food and hospitality, will benefit greatly from the new clubhouse that they are currently building. Very enjoyable day well recommended.
