Very slow pace of play
The course was in good condition for the time of year, I had heard it is pretty wet but I found it to be fine. The bunkers were very low on sand. the course is long, fairways and greens were good. The big problem is the pace of play, we teed off before 9 and were stuck behind very slow groups, at times you could see 5 groups all queuing along the holes after 4hours 30 we walked off having just finished the 13th hole and looking like the round was going to take over 6 hours. I did play a Saturday so maybe a comp was holding things up. Give the course a try but get out first or pick a weekday.
An interested but wet course!
I'd played the Abbey a couple of times before years ago and remember there being some interesting holes. There are some really testing holes, but this time it really was very wet with all the rain we've had, so it was playing naturally much longer. Greens were fair but balls were often plugging in and around the fairways which made it a real challenge trying to find your ball. I lost loads! I'd give it another go, but not in the Autumn/winter time,
The Abbey is a good course but only problem is any bit of rain sits as its a flat course, i do think also the price should reflect that because i paid in the summer less and had perfect conditions and this time it was a very marshy and we hadnt had much rain prior. Still love the course and staff are bang on
Nice enough but painfully slow
The welcome in pro shop was friendly and the practice facilities good. The course was in good condition the greens were very hard and more links like than parkland but once you knew that they did role true. My main reason for low rating was the 4min spacing of the tee times - this meant it was congested (even at 8:30) and pace was painfully slow so much so that I didn’t bother to play after 8 holes as I was looking at 5:30+ hours. A shame as everything else was good
A quality challenging golf course.
I used to play here often around 20 years ago and I really enjoyed playing here again and will make sure I return more regularly from now on. The greens ran really true which made the round really enjoyable and I had a good match against my golfing buddy. Fairways are pretty generous but if you stray off there is some brutal foot high rough waiting for you. Although this is cut short under some groups of trees. A really diverse range of holes and some longer ones to suit longer hitters. Some challenging par3 holes too. Can highly recommend.
I would definitely recommend The Abbey . Facilities were great staff were very friendly. Lovely terrace overlooking the 18th hole . Food was ok . The course was in very good condition but make sure you stay straight if you veered off into the rough at all very difficult to find your ball as the rough is long . Other than that the greens were solid so if you tried to pitch on them they ran off . We had a great day will be back soon .👍🏻
This is a beautiful course at a very good price, for the time of year and the weather we have had the course was in great condition, 2 or 3 greens could have done with a little more love but overall fantastic, we will definitely be going back
Played this on the off chance as other courses were closed but was a treat! It was a bit wet but still very well presented for a winter/early spring round. Good value. Do t hesitate go play it
Not played the Abbey for a few years
I can see the work they are putting in to make improvements,
The bunkers , tees etc
The green wasn’t great at all
Yes I know it early in the year and the new season hasn’t started , but could be better
Had some very nice holes and tricky holes. Greens was fast they will be even faster in the summer
I would definitely recommend the course I will be back in the summer carl
It was my first visit to the Abbey and really enjoyed it. Some of the shorter holes look easier they are where a strategic first shot is more important than the driver. Would definitely visit again
Course is in great condition for this time of the year . Greens in good condition. Few temporary tees but that is expected for this time of year .
