Value for money

Greens in need of attention but I’ll blame that on player’s not repairing pitch marks, some parts of course very wet but the weather hasn’t been great this past few weeks

Better than expected!

Played this course a few times now and have always been disappointed with the condition.

Had heard it was a good course to play in Winter as it doesn’t hold water so gave it another go - pleasantly surprised!

Fairways & greens a little long in places but with it being wet recently this was to be expected.

Bunkers could do with a fill of sand but aside from that pretty decent!

Amazing

The course is in superb condition for the time of year, and is probably the best value in the local area by a long way. Really enjoyable!

Great value

Have played here several times over past two years, particularly over the winter as it drains so well.
Greens in good condition, course not crowded and helpful staff. Any other golfers we've met have been very friendly. Value for money

Poorly mentained

Have played this course before and enjoyed the course, however it has really changed and not for thebetter, very poor greens, bunkers are atrocious, worst i have ever seen, fairway grass is too long, cant say i would return if its stays like this, it needs a lot of tlc to make it better, dont think it could get any worse.

Good value golf

Loved Down Royal. It has the feel of a links course in places. Great value for £10. Only downside was the greens which were very slow.

Slow greens to long..slow play ..could’ve been a busy time of day but was running behind even before we got to tee off..very windy which could have affected the pace of play..then a 2 ball and 3 ball stopped playing after 9 holes cause of the slow pace infront of us

Putting on Fairways

Greens an absolute farce. Could have got the lawnmower out at least. Fairways like rough and rough out of control.

Horrible greens

Everything was ok but as the title says the green where horrible..patchy and bumps all over them couldn’t get a good role of the ball on them..ball bounced up of green on most putts and changed direction cause of patches

Not great

Unfortunately this course isn't in great shape. The fairways are not cut very well but that is probably more of a concern to those who can hit them. However it would be great to be able to differentiate between the fairways and the rough. The greens would be questionable on a pitch n putt course but for a golf course charging £25 for a round, they are a disgrace.
