Birthday Round

Took the day off work and was looking forward to a birthday round, however upon arrival was told fairway protection was in play and we had to play all non-tee shots off an astroturf mat that we had to carry round. Although understandable given the weather and the pro apologised, this was very frustrating and there should have been some correspondence that this could occur pre-round as we would have cancelled and played somewhere with normal conditions.

Some of the greens were operational, but there were several winter greens that were very poor to the extent that we didn’t attempt to putt.

One of the threeball left after 9 holes to go to a driving range as he had enough of hitting off uneven mats and unfortunately it ruined the day a bit. Shame as I have enjoyed the course in the past.

Over priced

Paid full price for winter conditions. Greens on the fairway, Teaoff boxes moved forward, but no reduction in price? Really disappointing.

No mention of temporary greens

No mention of temporary greens when booking and paying full price. Fairway greens were poor & muddy. Also Playing off mats on fairways. Not worth £26

Great staff, painfully slow golf.

Played here as a 1 ball midday midweek. On arrival it’s a bit shabby but nothing that would put you off. The staff member in the shop was really friendly and helpful, explained where everything was as I hadn’t visited before. There is no range but a few nets and a practice putting and chipping area. Looking at the scorecard it appeared the course played quite short but that was in no way off putting for me. The fairways and greens were in fairly good condition, nothing amazing but good enough. In fairness my review is a bit tainted as I only played 9 holes due to the crazy slow pace of play. I had hoped to play the whole course but having been there well over 2 hours through 9 I decided to cut my losses. A good long wait on every tee box. Not allowed through by a members group of four ahead of me. At £25 would have been decent value if I’d played 18, as it stood I felt disappointed not to see the back 9 as I had heard it was the better half of the course.

1st time experience

We visited the course for the first time and found it to be a great experience. The course is very flat which might not suit everyone but was a welcome change to the hills on many courses. The greens and fairways were well kept. The bunkers and unforgiving rough made it a real challenge. The weather was really good, so helped the overall enjoyment. The club bar was open and safe. All in all a great day.

Beautiful Course!

Played Arcot Hall today and the simple and easy way to say it is what a beautiful course! It's been 19 years since I last played here and the only thing I was disappointed with, was myself...for not playing again here sooner than I have! A stunning course in phenomenal condition! Fantastic layout and can't recommend it highly enough!

Nice course with good staff

The staff were very accommodating and pleasant, allowing us to start on hole 10 due to hold up at the first tee. Tee boxes were in reasonable condition. Greens rolled well. Fairways and semi were okay. The locker rooms/toilet facilities are in need of an upgrade and whilst you don't visit a golf facility for this, it gives an impression that the club has seen better days. Take some spray for midge at this time of year as the damp conditions make bites inevitable without it.

Great Compact Course

Really enjoyed my round at Arcot Hall. It was a course I’d wanted to play for a while and it didn’t disappoint. The course was in good condition: The greens were excellent, however, there were some parts of the fairways that were a bit short on grass. It is quite a tight course that makes for a good challenge. It is quite compact so your quite often putting in direct view of another tee, but this wasn’t a problem as the course was relatively quiet. The members were friendly and I felt welcome on the course. I will go back.

Course was not too busy, so no pressure on time.
Good condition, good course, staff very friendly and helpful ( as it was my first time here)
Only grumble was not all bunkers had rakes and could do with a sign to point you in the direction of next tee after the 9th hole (I think it was)
Otherwise a great days golf, I will return, thanks

Arcot Hall Golf Course

I’ve played ‘Arcot’ a few times over the years and always enjoyed my round. Played with my son today: tee boxes very good, fairways great, greens immaculate!
I live fairly local and I know about the drainage problems, (wintertime) however; I am seriously considering joining this club.
