4 reviews of Woodspring Golf and Country Club
I played Woodlands in lovely conditions last week and despite some friends who had made a few negative comments about the course, I was open-minded and honestly had a great morning of golf. We played the Avon and the Brunel and the course was clearly well looked after. If you are a big hitter ( 270yds + with the driver) then there are some holes that could be a little longer. However, what tends to make or break a golf course are the greens and I can say that these greens were quick without being like glass and most importantly, they were TRUE! Now I know for a fact that a lot of us play week in week out moaning about the greens being too slow or bumpy etc. Overall, I thought it was an excellent day's golf and the only thing that is lacking is a bit more length and more mature trees to line the fairways but all courses need time to mature.
I started playing woodspring about 7 years ago. It had poor drainage, a depressing amount of long rough and the greens were not in a good state.
Since then it has obviously had a lot of money spent on it - the course hasn't been greatly redesigned but the drainage has improved hugely, the rough cut back to more sensible proportions and aside from the odd poor fairway, is in excellent nick.
For £14 weekday and £16 weekends I think it is an excellent course.

Played on the Avon and Brunel courses last week must say how very impressed I was with the condition of the greens. I believe Woodspring is part of The Gloucestershire Golf Group and since the last time I played Woodspring, everything has greatly improved. The other bonus I found out on my visit was that you can join the Fairway scheme and I only paid £14.00 for my round. What excellant value and will certainly return.
There are three nines at Woodspring, all of which are evidently fairly new in terms of golf course construction.
At one stage or other, I've played all 27 holes here and, while it's nothing special, there are some interesting holes which will keep you on your toes.
Unfortunately, in between, there is a fair proportion of weak and/or bland holes.
A couple of other points:- on the downside, the course drains extremely badly and should be avoided during the winter months. However, on the upside, the view over Bristol from one of the Par 3s on the Brunel 9 (I think) is exceptional. There's also a decent enough driving range; however, the putting green was in appalling condition when we last visited.
