Hail hail

The back nine was closed due to recent heavy rain which is beyound canyones control. A few old boys playing who still had good golf skills but unfortunately had terribly slow pace and should be much quicker to call other speedier players through.

Well kept greens

The course had been closed due to poor conditions the day before we played and the back 9 remained closed on the day. Nevertheless we really enjoyed the round and are thankful to the club for pulling out all the stops to remain open. The tee boxes were extremely wet but the fairways were quite playable. Kudos to the greens keepers, who have done an excellent job on greens, all of which were very well presented.

Hail Hail

A very welcoming Golf Club. I played this course during a very rainy period and it was a treat to play. The greens were still fast and in great condition. I've yet to see better skilled and more hard working ground staff.

Not good in the wet.

Let me start by clarifying that this course would b fantastic in the summer / dry conditions. Some very challenging holes. Unfortunately the same can’t b said for wet conditions. Fairway or rough, very wet, very boggy. I’m actually surprised it was opened at all given the recent weather. Lots of water gathering on fairways, some looked as tho they hadn’t been cut in weeks. I will say the greens were outstanding, really well kept. Winter tee boxes are atrocious. I would not recommend this course in the winter, despite the cheap price of £10. As I say, would b a cracker in the summer, but not in winter.

Excellent quality golf course

My 1st time playing this course and I have to say it was excellent. There was plenty of rain the days previous so I was expecting a wet course but it was in great condition. It was well laid out and there are some quality holes on this course. Because of covid the bar and restaurant was closed but the club shop is excellent and has a great range of golf equipment. I will definitely be back and recommend it to everyone.

Balmoral Golf

The course was in very good condition what spoiled it for us was the four ball in front of us. They were extremely slow and had no regard for those of us following them. There was absolutely no one in front of them. They spent an inordinate amount of time clearing the greens as well as teeing off. Unfortunately there was no course officials to complain to.

Great course

Played this today as my local course was closed due to heavy rain. Balmore was still open and was in great condition considering the weather. Layout was also great and has some amazing par 3s. Course was very enjoyable and might join up now on a full membership.
