First class day

Booked late the night before, pace of play was ok for first 3 hole, after night a 2 ball in a buggy behind is constantly teed off before we took our second shots, we waited on a four ball that delayed us and could not take our shots until the green was clear.
The two ball didn’t adhere to dress code, and I was surprised they could continue.
One shot actually just missed playing partners head by a fraction of an inch..
Apart from that the course itself was ideal, condition of the bunkers I wasn’t happy with, very hard sand and didn’t look like new sand had been added for quite some time,
Having new wedges didn’t give me confidence to play out of them on the 3 I ended up in, I took dropped shots rather than damage my new clubs
Only thing on the course itself that spoilt the day.

Barlaston's stunning golf course.

This may be a short golf course for some big hitters, but accuracy is key to success on this course. A splendid afternoon was spent navigating this well laid out course that was in such good condition. Wonderful setting only spoilt by my golf shots, but generally a great golf club, very friendly staff, and a welcome that was much appreciated. highly recommended.

A Challenge

What a gem of a course! Not the longest but you will need to plot your way around this course especially the front 9. All in all a very good challenge, friendly pro shop with a good choice of equipment, would definitely play again and recommend to friends, just don’t forget to tell them to make sure they have plenty of golf balls in the bag as if you are not accurate you may end up finding you need those spare balls in the bag. Gray course and excellent value for money.

Great value, well kept course

Really good value, and in great condition. Green keepers all very friendly as you pass them. Only downside, which was probably my own fault, was that I booked to tee off at 7.20am which was before the shop opened, so didn’t get a scorecard or to take a look at the clubhouse/shop. Would definitely play again.

A very wet course

Unfortunately the course was very busy, day before lockdown 2 didn't help and the tees were mats, which gives some idea of how wet the course is.
The greens had been hollow tined, I think a month too late, as they were very un even ad some were probably not fit to play.
However the course has some very testing holes and the weather was great.

Great day

It was raining heavily when I arrived, but was determined to play. I was joined by a very friendly member and we completed the round. We got lucky with the weather easing throughout the round. The condition was fantastic, the tee boxes, fairways and greens were excellent. Its a very fair test for all golfing abilities, and I will definitely be returning. Great price and friendly members and shop staff

Great value round of golf

I was fortunate to play on a lovely sunny day - always a bonus. Course provides an easy start with a short par 4 opening hole (4 iron/PW) followed by a short par 3 - so 2 or3 full shots to get your swing going. Easy walking for the most part with no serious uphills to navigate.

Very pleasant track, Fairways and greens in great condition. Great value for money via GolfNow. Somewhat spoiled scenically by the large voltage electricity pylons running straight through the middle of the course but lots to like on this course with a few noteworthy holes (Old Swampy index 1 is a beaut).

Slow play

Unfortunately the killer of all fun on a course is slow play. We were a 3 ball of average golfers, but stuck behind a 4 ball who took very long to complete their round. It took us 4 and a half hours to complete our round.
