A very pleasant course. Certainly nothing exceptional but it doesn't pretend to be. The front nine in particular does feel a bit samey after a while, with eight par 4's and just the one par 3 and it's a bit back and forth. None the less, some tight fairways, narrow greens and well thought out routing without anyone feeling the urge to throw excessive artificial hazards at the land.
If in the area and looking for a round which, comparative to some other local courses, wont cost too much Wyke Green is an excellent and very enjoyable venue of choice.
I have played Wyke Green 6 times and have enjoyed my experience every time. The club members are very friendly and the course is a fair challenge to any level player. Lower handicappers might look at the scorecard and think a par 69 will play easy. This is not the case. With longer par 4's and some very subtle greens, going low at Wyke Green means the player has control over their entire game.
Being an American, it reminds me of our "park courses" or municipal courses in the States. With trains and cars passing closely by (the Piccadilly line runs along the 3rd hole and a major motorway runs along a few holes on the back 9) you know you are in London, but this is one of the draws to the course.
I highly recommend a round or two at Wyke Green and a pint (or two) after the round. You will not be disappointed.
Played on the 22nd Jan 2006.
Lots of long par 4's which are a great test.
I hit the ball fairly long so in good conditions a par 4 is a drive and a short/mid iron.
Because of the wet conditions the ball wasn't running so it left me with a long iron or sometimes a 3 wood for my second.
The fairways were lush, lovely condition for Winter and the greens were in fantastic condition, mainly I thought due to most of them being on a plateau.
Because the trees were bare, we were aware of the tube line next to course as well as the M4. hey what do you expect in the middle of west London.
Well worth a visit, we payed £15 for early bird 8-9 midweek. Fantastic value, In fact i would probably pay £30 in the summer.
I played Wyke on a hot day in July. The front 9 was rather bland and i managed to get out in +4, which is good for my handicap. Going into the back 9 I was slightly concerned I was going to take a serious chunk out my handicap - however it got a bit more interesting and my score was in the normal range after 18. At the end I was quite satisfied and felt there was enough of a challenge on the back nine to make another visit to have a go at it after work.
At the end of the day it's in a built up part of London and very handy to the A4. Therefore one cannot knock it, especially if it's handy to your workplace.
Travel further afield with Society's and at weekends.
Played here midweek July 06 (£18 using a county card).
I'd rate this overall about 6 out of 10.As a course i thought it was better than the nearby courses West Middlesex & Ealing but i'm not sure i'd go as far as telling someone to go & play here.It was o.k without being that inspiring although by the end of the round the course had grown on me a bit.
The good points are that it was very well presented ,it has good bunkering & there are a number of good holes (standout holes were 8,10,13,15&18,hence i preferred the back 9).The 18th inparticular is a very good finishing hole .Overall there seems to be a relaxed atmosphere around the club & it was nice sitting on the patio after the round with a drink.
The drawbacks were that there was a very slight municipal feel out on the course (people playing with their shirts hanging out,wearing ankle socks),quite a lot of the holes run up & down & are a bit samey & the noise from the M4 doesn't make for a relaxing round.(surprisingly the planes weren't a problem as you don't really hear them as the flightpath is far enough away).
I played Wyke Green in June 2006 and was very pleasantly surprised.
The course is a good challenge, quite narrow in places and with good strategic bunkering around landing areas and greens.
The course was also in fantastic condition - the greens were very true and the fairways were like carpet.
You can't say it is quiet what with all the trains, cars and planes buzzing around, but it is more than made up for by the quality of the course.
A great find so close to central London.
Played there recently and it is in excellant condition . Had an excellant meal in the clubhouse and shall look forward to another visit.
A real find,though not to everyones taste,longer than it looks,always appears to be in good condition and each hole is a test in its own way.Greens were good if a little slow.
As previously posted pretty noisy but this is a welcoming course and the food is good,served by happy friendly staff,other managements should take their staff down and see what can be done even in fairly modest surroundings,give it a go,prepare to be disappointed but you will be surprised
There are tubes rumbling by and aircraft overhead and a couple of holes run alongside the M4 but none of this detracts from a lovely golf course kept in good condition. We paid a twilight green fee of £20 which was good value since the course was very quiet. Starts off with a easy enough par 4 but then there are 3 long par 4's with the second hole being the best of them. After the downhill par 5 tenth you move into asnother section of the course where things eas up a bit before the final 3 holes. The 16th is a long par 3 but the 17th is the star hole. At only about 115 yards it looks easy enough on the card but the green is small and surrounded by bunkers and you can only see 1/2 the pin from the tee. The last is a tough long par 4. Overall - Very enjoyable but may play a bit long for shorter hitters.
Well kept course. Good greens. Just about worth the £28.00 green fee but not a beautiful course and as it borders on the central line, the mainline rail, the M4, and flightpath numbers 1-1000, it must be the noisiest I've ever played. But it's fair and is well maintained and that's a bonus round here.
Quite a nice course but not one I would describe as beautiful. Played here several times over the summer and the last time the grees were becoming quite threadbare, although the fairways were in good condition. The course is not that long and quite a few of the holes run parallel to each other. Worth a visit if you are in the area.
Wyke Green has got to be one of the undiscovered jewels in the green fee payers world. Amazingly it is almost always open and quiet to green fees on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. The course is beautiful with long well manicured fairways and some beautiul feature holes. The par 3 17th with its elevated green in particular is my favourite. Green fees are always made welcome and I can recommend the steak sandwich and Guiness at the 19th hole.
A beautiful parkland course with some lovely holes that truly test even the most experienced player.The greens and fairways are in excellent condition.A very friendly club house with a warm atmosphere and also an excellent half-way house offering hot and cold food. We had a great day and I strongly recommend people give it a go.
