Ex member advising new members

If you are thinking of joining this club with the intention of playing on a weekend think again. Members have lifetime permanent tee times on Saturday on both courses meaning you will not get a time until 4pm. If you want to play Sunday you will have to work around the ‘internal’ societies with block bookings meaning once again you are playing very late in the afternoon. Do you get a discount for the pleasure of not playing weekend golf....you must be joking! I have contacted every person involved in running this club and been hit with a stone wall, no changes will ever happen and that’s that. I am told that there is a waiting list going back 5 years for tee time changes whenever new times become available which gives you an idea of what it is like to be a new member. Having now got the response from the council that my issue was quickly glanced at before being pushed to the side is the final straw. Absolutely could not advise more strongly to not join this club.

Another Great Experience

This was my second time playing the course.

The fairways and greens were in good condition given the overnight rainfall.

If you are new to the game or are not a long hitter, I would recommend the course.

A wonderful experience

A delightful course in fabulous surroundings. I’ve only taken up golf in the last couple of months, I’ve become totally hooked on the sport and this course has made me even more hungry.

From the welcome of the staff to experiencing this beautiful location with it’s beautifully kept fairways was definitely something to behold. A memorable mornings golf which I thoroughly recommend.

Great condition following heavy rain

Played here many times and this time introduced my two sons to a course where they couldn’t just get the driver out on every hole. It’s a real challenge despite the yardage. Be prepared for many blind shots. Made to feel really welcome

AVA an ego boosting course

Very playable course and one that is good after a short break. Some short par 4s and 5s to make you feel like a pro.

Good variation of holes but seems like it’s a lot less than a par 72 with the amount of par 3s.

Great little course.

The fairways and greens were in excellent condition considering the recent weather, the website advised that winter greens were in operation but only the short par 3 tenth actually was.. A really good test of your golf and a pleasure to play.

Great golf course

A great morning's golf - the fairways and greens were in superb condition, the weather was perfect and there were very few people on the course. Hard to remember enjoying a round of golf more.

Beautiful course

Only our 2nd time playing the Ava course, 1st time was temporary greens with the cold weather which was no fault of the course. We had a great mornings golf in winter sunshine. Fairways in good condition and the greens were a decent pace. Some very pretty holes with great greens to go for. The layout is great, and most holes are individual not havingnither holes running parallel. We love the Duffrrin course and now realize how lucky the members are at Clandenoye to have 2 great courses to play
