First time on Ashton and Lea

In terms of course maintenance and condition 9/10. In terms of course design 6.5/10. It's not that it's badly designed it's just a bit up and down with the par 4s. Very very well maintained though good greens well manicured layered bunkers and quality fairways with plenty of lush green grass. I will definitely go again because of this.

Observations

Course was in excellent condition, credit to the grounds staff. Only criticism would be that the par 4's were very similar.

Absolute Gem of a Course

Having been a member when I was junior and not played the course for 20 years I did not know what to expect.
The course was in excellent condition from tee to Green. Seeing how the course has developed over the last 2 decades was so pleasing to see.
I can only recommend the course and look forward to coming back again. It definitely won’t be 20 years !!

Stunning greens

Lovely course in top condition at the moment. Practice facilities are excellent. Fairways and tee boxes are lovely and greens are in top condition. Really struggling to find any faults. It's forgiving in places as well. We'll worth the 26 pound we paid we definitely be going back and considering becoming a member when my other membership runs out.

Hidden gem

Lovely surprise. Beautifully kept course. Greens had been spiked but other than that tee boxes, bunkers etc all in as good a condition as I’ve seen this year on much more expensive courses. Brilliant signs as well which makes it look nice.

BEWARE

course is lovely laid out and credit to green keepers for trying its upmost to keep on top

BUT BUT BUT please be aware, visitors (non members) to this club will be treated very differently and badly. BEWARE of the chairman (George) he will be hiding behind trees etc watching you are not doing something wrong. Members have a habit of tell tailing to George if visitors do anything wrong. if you do something wrong George will be waiting for you on the 18th green

club house staff are reasonable but under the influence of Chairman George. the chairman needs to learn to respect equality of race & gender and try to adapt a more friendly approach. maybe if the chairman wasn't there the club would be so much more pleasant to visit regularly

so please beware - you have been warned

It seems that someone had there hands slapped for not appreciating the hard work of the green staff! The chairman of the golf club is dedicated and hard working! We don't need the likes of you on the golf course!

We are a friendly club, its a pity that players are not able to follow the rules which they sign for and take buggies on greens.
