Played on 31 August 2010, On a lovely summers day, course was ok, shame about the backdrop of middlesburgh industrial works! but hey they curse was still good, some great par 3's, back 9 better than front 9 and greens hard to stick ball to. All in all a good trip out, would possibly play again even if it is for "the big foot" sandwich afterwards! a baguetter with a foot long sausage smothered in fried onions and only £2.65, I struggled to eat it but was very nice indeed.
myself and 3 playing partners played at wilton on tuesday 31st august on a beautiful summers day.
upon arrival we received a warm welcome from the pro who was helpful with directions to various tee boxes etc. we then proceeded to the 1st tee which gives you a good view of the clubhouse.
the course itself is in 2 distinctive halves. the front nine is played on the top side of a hill and has a few memorable holes on it. the 2 par 3s played down hill are both nice holes with the fourth been very well protected by bunkers.
the back nine was probably the slightly better of the 2 in my opinion, although all 18 holes were very well maintained. the greens had been recently treated but were running fast and true, although it was extremely difficult to hold any sort of shot fired into them. i hit a high, towering PW into the 9th which landed at the front of the green but ended up running straight through the back.
all in all it was a nice course which i would probably play again (although it was a long trip for us travelling down from northumberland). the staff were really friendly and polite and the food was very reasonable and tasty.
overall 7 out of 10
First time on the course and found it both challenging and very enjoyable, its well maintained, and is not as easy as it may first appears, sloping fairways, small greens, and well placed bunkers and trees add to the challenge.
Have to agree with comment about finding your way round the course can be difficult, but a trip in the club shop and the purchase of a yardage book, will give very good diagrams, yardages, and directions of each hole, and its very cheap to buy,(worth the investment). Great views and a really calming atmosphere make for a pleasant round, so much so I have already decided to invest in a membership.....
The first few holes start at the highest point on the course and are all on steep slopes so it makes for hard walking, and its hard to keep your ball on the fairway especially on the 2nd and 3rd holes. there are two good par 3's on the front 9 straight back down the hill. the later holes offer a different challenge as its almost flat and more mature, there are some nice water features and views of Wilton Castle. The stand out hole for me was the par 5 13th which snakes uphill through a narrow opening in the trees with out of bounds all the way up the left. Overall Wilton is a very idyllic course which was a pleasure to play, although not overly difficult or long. Its kept in excellent condition with fast running fairways, fluffy bunkers, and despite being fairly small the greens are firm and consistent. Signage between tees could be improved and parts of the course look a little tired but definitely worth the money.
When playing at wilton i thought the atmosphere was very calm and soothing despite the steel works being in the view. They did infact help towards a marvelous contrast of the greenery.
The course was not overly challenging however it did provide some excellent quick fairways on which clean strokes could be made and to their full potential
My favourite hole was the 14th which i chipped in on as it was a particularly good hole for driving although slightly dog legged.
All in all i thought Wilton golf course was that on which an unexperienced player like myself could continue his golfing ambitions with not to much difficulty
played here tuesday 28th feb ,it was a cold day but had a good game ,nothing stands out in the wow factor but a easy course ,but could be better for first time players if they had signs pointing to the next tee box as one or two holes we had to ask players where the tee boxes where ie 18th hole you leave the second part of the course to go back to the first part ,(no signs) but have to walk 100 yrds to the right to see the box !!
Course is split into 2 halves of 9 holes.\r\nTop halve consisting of the holes 1-8 & 18 and bottom half holes 9-17.\r\nTop half is on the side of a hill.\r\nBottom half on a flatter terrain.\r\nAll the fairways are undulating.\r\nAlways remember when putting everything fals to the sea.\r\nA very enjoyable small course.
