Goodbye Allestree

Played this course many times over last two years and this was my last round before the Council close the place for good. Greens in nice condition and hilly course with great views always a pleasure to play. Will really miss playing at Allestree and it's a rotten shame that it's being closed.

Nice course, challenging walk

Largely enjoyable course but not suitable for anyone who isn't up for a challenging hilly walk. Also be aware you are sharing the area with walkers, families etc. casually using the park so needs a bit of patience and consideration. All round.

An enjoyable last round at a great course

Considering the recent wet weather the course was in excellent condition and particularly impressed with the Greens. So sad that it is scheduled to close soon.

The best muni for many miles

This is a wonderfully well designed course which I have played over 400 times - and I never tire of it. In the 5th and 17th it has two of the best and most challenging par 3s anywhere and there are a number of great driving holes, some from elevated tees, including the fabulous 3rd hole. If the Council maintained it slightly better it could surely justify a higher green fee to balance the books. A way must be found to save this gem.

Try to play here before it closes!

Considering the time of year we went the course was in great condition, a huge variation of holes to challenge all golfers. I would have loved to play this in the summer but unfortunately we were told it is closing down in the new year. It will be a massive shame as the course really surprised me and my mates. Will try to get another round in before New Years

Regularly interrupted and poor layout

First off, it’s a beautiful area and the scenery is great. However, as a public course this draws far too many walkers that are happy to walk straight across the fairway without caution.

The course took 6 hours due to regular stops in play to allow for pedestrians, while we then got caught up and had to allow smaller groups of golfers play through us.

The course is long, hilly and poorly laid out with regular crossovers between fairways and greens within 20 feet a of each other at some points

Challenging for a beginner

Generally this is a challenging course for a beginner or less experienced golfer. The course layout is confusing at times, with poor or obscured signage to the next tee. This caused delays in progress and potential slow play.
Overall though we enjoyed our first visit and will book again.
