A joy to play

I’m nothing more than an occasional golfer these days but this was a great afternoon out. I’d heard good things about Woodlake Park for a number of years and it didn’t disappoint. The greens are fantastic and the star of the show but there are no weak homes. There was a good mix of holes where you could open your shoulders and let the driver go combined with those that required you to put the ball in the right position to be able to access the green.

Would definitely recommend to all handicappers and will return

Fantastic Greens

Outstanding course which can be a tough walk but we’ll worth the effort. Tees were a little worn but playable, the greens however were superb, fast but true and in immaculate condition.

I’ll be back!

Great course but a stiff walk if you’re carrying (which I was). Greens quick but true and in great condition. Really impressed with this place, views awesome.

Top Class Course

The course was in absolutely great conditions, which combined with the views made the day. Our pairing of high and low handicaper never felt there was a high gap, with the course offering different challenges to all.

Disappointed

Really disappointed with the delays on this course, tee’d off 13.10 and didn’t get into the club house until 6pm. There’s were ques on all holes causing huge delays across the course.

Interesting Course

All winter tees. Wet underfoot in many places but some spectacular views over the reservoir and to Sugar Loaf. Bar staff very friendly and will return in the summer when conditions should be better to play some interesting holes

Good day!!

Superb welcome from staff and pro shop. Course average for this time of year, fine views. Negative, pace of play poor which impacted an otherwise great day.
Overall, very nice course and a warm welcome from most.
