Great course

Well maintained course, we’ve had continuous rain before we played and the ground was very dry with hardly any water holding!

Nice well kept 9 hole course,

Some nice holes on this course so no problem playing the 9 holes twice, unfortunate that staffing problems meant no bar or even access to pro shop on the day.
Enjoyable round of golf.

Winter Wonderland

I can't taste Blackwood enough. I've played here many times, and I've never been disappointed by the condition of the course.
To start with, the last 2 times I've played through golf now, I've received a courtesy call before teeing off. So thoughtful! This call was just to make me aware that there was winter greens. Which I'm fine with.
The course, despite it being -6 overnight was in great nick! The winter greens weren't made up of the usual scuffed fairways, but had been thoughtfully placed.
The only downside was I couldn't get a tee in the ground, so take some tees on a string 👍🏻

Very nice course

Got to give this course 5*, the course is very well maintained to a very high standard, no matter when you play, summer or winter the fairways and greens are always in top condition. The last few occasions I've played here, pace of play has never been a problem as I've never been held up for anyone playing slow.
The only downside is it's a 9 hole course / 18, so paying £20 to play 18 holes of the same green plus the tee box's are close together so it really don't Warrent it being 18 holes for the price, I would say around £12 / £15 would be more reasonable priced as you play the same greens going out has to coming in and that's the only downside to such a well maintained course which again he kept to a very high standard.

Clean course.

The mats are the softest to play off, you don't shock your shoulders. Every hole is different. Try reading greens 4 & 9? They are tricky. There's always a course guy litter picking, hedge trimming, removing debris off the course. They are manicuring the fairways and greens constantly, but they don't interfere with play.

Winter Golf at its best

Hit and miss at most courses during winter months, but Blackwood course in nice condition and greens in great condition and although recently spiked played really well.
Course has one or two slope’s but probably why it drains so well.
A must visit for a few hours of winter golf.

Pleasantly Surprised and would recommend.

First time playing this course and will definitely play again. I was sceptical of it being a 9 hole course. For this time of year, the greens were of a v high standard. Soft and spongy to walk on; fast to putt on and the ball sticks from distance. I hit a rescue from around 215 yards on the hole alongside a practice area (i think 6th) and it's pitched the green and finished maybe 8 feet from where it pitched. Although only 9 holes, they're all varied and thought needs to be given to club selection on each tee shot. A true hidden gem and would recommend it to anyone.

Nice round off golf

Nice golf course, fairways in good condition but greens were a little bobbly. On a whole a really nice course. Weather was lovely and had a really enjoyable round. Some really nice holes with some difficulty, will definitely be coming back.

Great Little Course

Lovely little 9 hole course and the greens were amazing. If any slight criticism there was no pro shop and no one to check in with, no par 5’s and a lot of holes cross over each other.
