Well worth a trip.
As mentioned by other reviews some greens and tees were needing some attention but cost needing and my son 10.00 pound each, good staff on site.
It is a long course in parts so not one for a raw beginner but very good value.
great course long and flat,couple of the greens were patchy and cracked but what do you expect for £13 and the weather we have had,.Staff are friendly and pace of play was good will definitely play there again
Disappointed and saddened
Played this course many times over the years and always enjoyed the challenge and course conditions...how things have changed, course layout is still an enjoyable challenge but the tees and greens were shockingly bad. I understand we have had exceptionally dry weather but they were in terrible condition and to be quite honest looked like they had lost 7 or 8 of the greens...got back to the clubhouse after our round gagging for a drink to find nobody about and the bar closed. Young lady who booked us in was very nice and chatty, probably the only positive from our visit....very saddened to see such a lovely course going to rack and ruin.
Enjoyable Day with Old Friends
Course location ideal for me travelling from Leeds and my friends travelling from Hull. Teed off at 12:40 on Sat 6th August and although behind a society we were not held up in anyway. Course had been set up with some very challenging pin positions (I understand that the club had been playing a scratch competition) mostly behind green side bunkers which made scoring very difficult. I play off single figures but my 2 playing partners are both occasional golfers playing to ~ 28. The course layout and conditions suited us all however and we had a very enjoyable round finishing in just under 4 hours. The layout is such that when missing the fairways you find your ball (exception being the 9th when my partner hit it right out of bounds) but are punished by virtue of generally having trees in your way so you have to play a percentage shot and get the ball back onto the fairway. A minor criticism would be the inconsistency of sand in the bunkers and that the bar shut at 5pm when I believe it was advertised that it stayed open until 6. Overall however very happy and will no doubt return again at some point next year.
Good until we quickly caught upto a slow 4 ball who clearly had no intention of letting us play through. 2nd time this has occurred on this course. Ignorant members and no knowledge of current rules,
Nice course ,ignorant members
I had to walk off the course half way through ,I got stuck behind an incredibly slow group with no-one in front of them for at least 2 holes ,who refused to let me play through because they were members
Just pure ignorance
I suppose you get what you pay for, good layout but condition of the course was very poor, greens were shocking and the fairways just as bad, a bit more course management and it would be better, also no trolleys available after I had phoned ahead to confirm availability.
Mixed feelings about this course
I played Boothferry as I am playing it in a competition later in the year. I thought the layout of the course was excellent and the quality of the holes was good, however I am not sure if the course ins on its way out but the course conditions were really poor and the whole course has a rundown appearance. Greens were poor and the fairways were poorly prepared and manicured. It needs a lot of money invested but believe I has the potential to be one of the best courses in the area.
Considering the cost it’s hard to find fault. The greens could be better but overall great value for money and decent layout for a flat course.
Not Great First Impression
Played in a fourball this past Sunday after hearing good things about the course. The layout and hole design is really good with some well placed hazards and OOBs, however myself and the people who had been before commented frequently on how poorly maintained it seemed, overgrown reeds surrounding bunkers, fairways and rough being the same length, the rough rough not trimmed at all so made any shot off fairway unplayable. Some holes it was hard to distinguish what was fairway and what wasn't.
A shame because i can see with a biot of TLC the course being a frequent place i would visit.
Nice days golf
This is a flat but pleasant course to play. Not too busy so I didn’t feel that I had to rush my play. Well worth a play if you want to have a change of scenery. I will definitely play there again.
Tees and fairways were good.
The greens needed water and done growth.
All in all a nice course,and great value.
Great value but course needs some attention
Grass quite long on most of the fairways, needed cutting and bare patches on greens, not as neat as I remember it. Overall it’s good value for the special offer but wouldn’t pay top prices.
Felt like a municipal course
15 quid for 18 holes is a bargain. But you get ehat you pay for.
On arrival I was asked to pay for 3 green fees even though I hsd booked and paid online. I had to show proof on my phone that i had already paid but they were still dubious.
Usually in the pro shop they are more than helpful so i'm not sure if the person i dealt with was new.
The course itself was boggy in places but we expected this after a lot of rain.
5 or 6 of the greens were practically unplayable dye to the number of fallen catkins on them. Need someone out to give the greens a good sweep
