Great place.

The course is tight and not overly long. It does have some tough uphill holes that you need to think about club selection on your shot into the green. Good variation on holes so never felt boring.
The course was in superb condition. The fairways where lush and the greens had a fast pace to them. One minor gripe is signage to the tee's could be a bit better.
After the round we had lunch in the clubhouse. The food and variety on the menu was outstanding. Really enjoyed the food and the clubhouse itself was fantastic.
Finally the people who work there where all excellent. From the guy in the pro shop to the catering team all contributed to a great afternoons golf which was great value.

Not the best atm

Course is very very wet and mainly unplayable in the majority of places. Called it a day after only 6 holes. Would play again in the dryer months.

Too hilly and overpriced nothing personal

Playing golf at Fortwilliam is only enjoyable if you want to get fit in my personal opinion. There are steep climbs on several holes as the course is on the side of a mountain basically, playing par 5s and par 4s up steep climbs isn't enjoyable for me. Par 3 17th in isolation is OK for example but the par 5 5th is just a long draining up hill slog. The other thing is that it can get very boggy and wet later in the year and when the leaves start to fall you will spend your time looking for balls under leaves or plugged. You couldn't pay me to be a member here personally speaking so it's a bit much to ask for over £20 a round - there are far better cheaper alternatives around. Holes could maybe go along slopes rather than up and down to improve course. Personally it's not a course I would ever miss. You need to be straight off the tee here to score well and have good fitness levels or pay for a buggy. Greens are very fast. They are doing a bit of work filling in bunkers at the minute so some are out of play but I think this has been going for a while now maybe. The post at 15 to indicate the line is a nice touch.

Nice course and friendly staff

Good friendly course and helpful friendly staff, pace of play was a bit slow due to people carrying golf bags rather than using a trolley which doesn't help on a fairly busy weekend.

A journey

This course has some challenging holes it's well laid out and tee boxes are easily found. This is long though and very hilly so pace yourself and maybe don't play another round the day before.
