Enjoyable course, terrible condition

I'd played this course a few years back and had fond memories, not too difficult and able to score well as the holes weren't too long (high handicapper) However after recommending it to 2 friends we all booked on yesterday for a 3 ball. Greens were appalling, moss and bare patches on most greens. Forget about lining up a putt, it was more like hit and hope it goes in the general direction of the hole after it hits one of many bumps on the green. Tee boxes were bits of muddy fairway. Really sad to see it this way and hope it returns to the way it used to be.

Friendly members and groundskeep

Started early and it was a wee bit misty. Old member said i could go ahead of their 3 balls as i was by myself. Groundskeeper later came by to check that all was ok. A good course, but greens could be in a better shape.

Give it a miss for

Worst condition ever, tees and greens were shocking and fairways not much better ! You would think it was being run down prior to closing . Don’t play until it’s sorted , never seen course like this ever .

Poor condition

Wasn’t expecting whistling straights for 3.5 stars on GolfNow but the condition of Rouken Glen was abysmal. Greens were shocking. Can honestly say we never played on a green that had grass on the whole surface, and some absolutely riddled with thick moss or just rock hard mud with massive cracks. Won’t be playing there again.

Terrible greens

Golf course wasn't to bad but the greens where terrible. Every green was badly burnt, obviously hadn't been watered all week when it had been roasting.

Great for high handicappers

Chap explained at start that greens were in a bad way and they were. Other than that it’s a nice wee course. You would be loathed to pay anymore than £15 based on green conditions. That said, fairways were in good condition. Yardage on card can only be used as a guide as they have white and yellow tees in same locations but different yardage on card.

Course was poor

Course condition was very poor, the greens looked as if they hadn’t been watered at all and we’re cut and fired by the looks of it. Went with my friend and we played 3 holes before walking off the course shocked at the fact it was even open.

Ok

Course was ok, the tees and greens were dry as a bone.
With this extra warm weather they needed extra watering but I don’t even think they were getting watered in general! Cracks everywhere and very bumpy.
Was starting to become ok course when David Loyd took over and put money into it but seems to have slipped back to being a very average public course.
Shame, great memories of here, fun wee course!

Big disappointment

The greens were in a terrible condition with weeds and moss growing in them and lots of bare patches.
It was difficult to find any grass on many of the tees although the fairways were in good condition and the ground staff were working on the greens.

I wouldn’t hurry back.
