Nice course but slow pace

Stuck behind a three ball that hadnt booked a tee time and snook in front of us. Course didnt have control on what groups were teing off.. Positions of tee boxes / greens promote slow play. General course conditions were good, but some ropey greens where they had been damaged by diesel apparently.

High winds and rain

Course should have been closed today in my opinion. 40kph winds and driving rain made the otherwise great course unplayable. Battled through 9 holes and left absolutely soaking wet right thorough even though wearing full waterproofs in June! I know the weather can't be controlled but had no choice but to play or lose my money. Seen a 3 ball in front of me leave after the 6th hole so it wasn't just me who had the same thoughts. Will still play Boldon again cos ita a great course, but only in better weather.

Told we could only use an iron from 1st tee got a par so maybe should have used it on every hole
Greenkeeper followed us on to the first 6 tee boxes uncanny timing. Was alarmed at the state of a lot of greens but other reviews say they had been vandilised which i suppose just shows up the area.
Some interesting holes but i found a lot of the areas of fairways and just around to be bare and difficult to play off, the sand in the bunkers is of poor quality. We paid £25 each. One of the holes i think the 8th hole is not clearly marked where the second part of the fairway is so much as we played to the wrong/fairway.This could be a good course if it was maintained better but i think there are too many cross over holes, bare lies and tees close to greens to consider it as an enjoyable option to play.I would say that the decent parts of the greens were very quick and they did have breaks and slopes.

Poor

Course is in really poor condition. Certainly not worth more than 15 quid a man let alone 22 we paid. Greens are shocking. Pace of play terrible, with assumed members not allowing 2 balls through past 4 balls despite the 2 ball being younger and bigger hitters ! Asked to play through and was declined, more out of spite than anything else !!

Wouldnt return or suggest a visit to others which is a shame.

Unfriendly members and slow play

Played here just after the C19 lockdown ended. Course and greens were ok.
The problem with this course is the slow play. The majority of members are unfriendly and will make you feel like a visitor to 'their' course.
Pro shop is decent and well stocked which is a bonus.

Definitely be back

Course was in great condition. Greens had recently been vandalised however the green keepers have done an amazing job in getting them to decent playing condition. Our group found all members to be extremely welcoming considering we went there on the third day of golf courses reopening. Will be back in a couple of weeks for sure and hopefully can enjoy a drink after golf as well
