Whitehead gc

It was a nice course the greens were amazing condition the fairways are good but the only thing that I can think about is that by the time I got the first three holes played I was knackered as they were all uphill but it is a beautiful course and I will be back when I lose a few more pounds

Fantastic Days Golf

Second time playing Whitehead. To be honest it was even better that I remember it to be.
Manecured to perfection. Greens do what you expect them to do.
Rough cut to a length where you can find your ball .
Great selection in Pro Shop.
Large bar/restaurant with friendly staff.
Views to die for. You won’t be disappointed.

Front nine is majestic

My first to Whitehead Golf Course and I wasn't disappointed. The front nine is absolutely glorious. The views are to die for! The holes themselves are challenging. Its not about just grabbing the driver on every par 4. Typified by hole 4. A strategic par 4 you need to plot around with two bunkers in the middle of the fairway protecting the green from a big bombed drive..The back nine is a nice parkland course with its challenges. Thoroughly enjyable and would definitely play again.

Big let down

Since I played this course a couple of times years ago I’ve always wanted to go back. Understandably, the weather has played a missive part on the dry conditions, but it’s got to be the worst greens and tee boxes I’ve ever seen. Hopefully it’s down to the weather and not due to financial input on the course.

Pointless

No idea how the course wasn't closed and booking refunded. Arrived and the fog was so thick you could only see 30/40 yards in front of you and having not played the course before, we had no idea of the layout. Front 9 was pointless and was ready for walking off after 5 holes after near being hit by balls from group behind and not knowing if we were playing on top of the group in front. The group in front also walked off. Managed to play 6 on the back 9 before finishing up before dark.

Fantastic round

Great round had at Whitehead GC. Man in the Pro Shop was more than helpful. Ran us through how the course condition was and that the greens were a little sandy. Greens were completely fine for this time of year and the weather we’ve had the past number of weeks. Course very well maintained, some lovely tricky holes. Views walking down the 3rd fairway are stunning! We had a lovely sunny day yet a little windy which added to the fun! All in all we will be back playing Whitehead GC!

Nice course

Got a hot deal and played with my father , there’s been some heavy rain recently, and I had been told the course suffers badly when wet, but tbh course was fine, 2 or 3 soft parts. Greens good and fast , fairways freshly cut. No issues will play again. There’s a few hills .

Fun in the wind!

Back at whitehead for the first time in a few years. Course playing well and other than a couple of small issues on 2/3 greens it is in great nick. The fairways are in especially good condition throughout. (Putted on worse!)
At £19 for 18 it’s a great wee track and good fun.
