First time for a while

Well maintained, great layout just loads of trees so close to a fairway....no chance with the rough and you are straight into the trees, which does spoil the feeling of it all. The slightest mistake and you are coming out sideways. The bar isnt inviting and the bar staff weren't friendly but club shop guy was very helpful.

Take your medicine course, do nothing clever

The title of my review might seem a bit weird but it’s true, on this course you have to do exactly what it says. Bondhay is a course you can love or hate, personally I love it. Yes, it’s one of the hardest courses in the area, yes it can chew you up and spit you out, but who wants to play easy courses every week?? 8 of us played and the course was in lovely condition given the summer we’ve had. Greens were quick, fairways were back to lush and trees just as frustrating. Bondhay punishes wayward shots with tree lined fairways and great bunkering. If you creep into the trees then you have to take your medicine and chip out in whatever direction works best, which in some cases can be another fairway. Try a worldly shot through a perceived gap and you may find your ball ricocheting around into deeper problems. I always chuckle when I see bad reviews of this course as it’s absolutely certain the course has destroyed them and the review is their way of getting back. The guys in the pro shop are always welcoming and chatty, the food is excellent and the practice facilities are good. Oh and the random table and chair off the 9th is actually a sad reminder of where the halfway house used to be, not some sort of junk yard. So if you think you are a good golfer give this course a try and if you score over 30 stableford points off a genuine handicap break out the champagne, you have done well. We will be back, because we love it and because we hate it at the same time!

Some good holes

First time on bondhey wasn't impressed.
The first 4 greens were in shocking condition coming off the 9th there's an old table and chsir just sat there .
On course directions are next to useless didn't have a clue were to go on most of the holes .
The staff were friendly and helpful
The fairways were well maintained and the course wasn't littered

Too tight

Played here 10 years ago and enjoyed it but the trees have encroached too far across the fairways. They were planted with a view to remove some ax they matured but this has clearly not happened.
The greens had been dressed which for august is odd as they were dry as a bone and very uneven.
Really disappointed

Great Value

Teed off late afternoon. Course in great condition, tough test, as if you try and take driver off most tees you’ll be blocked out or chipping out, absolute bargain for £13. Course was really quiet so our 4 ball had a perfect round.
