Signage

At times it was difficult to work out which way it was to the next tee after finishing on the green, little or no signs indicating where to locate the next tee.

Bargain

Value for money. Apart from the bunkers the course is well maintained. No rakes in bunkers which is understandable as public have easy access so probably nicked them. Fairways and greens are very good. Lady in the shop was nice and helpful ( although the shop only sells drinks so don’t expect to buy balls etc ). For a newbie or high handicapper this is ideal as it’s not a difficult course. I’d definitely go again.

Good for beginners

You very much get what you pay for with Bowring.
Very basic "clubhouse" facilities (though now much better tarmac parking); first tee often a bit crowded.
Yellow tees a bit ropey, and some green surrounds a bit rough but fairways & greens good despite recent rain. Needs better hole/tee direction signs & 200 / 150 / 100 distance markers for non regulars.
A lot of wide fairways, with a few tricky holes - hence good for beginners / high handicappers.
Need to use local pub for after match drink.

Could be better

The course layout and look are good the greens were good and the pace of play was exceptable.As with most courses the things that let them down are the little things like bunkers not up to much tees looking bare and some weeds on the fairways.But if they could get all the people who come on the course after the clubhouse shuts to pay maybe we would have a better course.

Nice course with decent greens

The course itself is very good. A lot of variety in holes and the greens are descent for a municipal course.
Evening play is not great as you get a lot of locals playing with one club and kids walking around.

Great for high handicap players

It’s a great walk with some excellent holes that can be testing.
The one thing I don’t like is the bunkers.
Overall, Bowring park is good value for money, easy to get to & a test for most.

Excellent value for money

Having read reviews from years ago we very nearly didn’t book this course which was a last minute replacement.

Reviews appeared to have got better recently with just cause.

The course was in great condition overall (particularly the greens). Ok the bunkers / tee off positions were not brilliant but both were ok.

Overall exceptional value for money and would return.

Lovely well kept course

Lovely little course, after reading bad reviews I was sceptical but these must have been from far previous as the course condition was excellent, 17.50 for the round was great. Lots of bunkers but no rakes, however wasn’t a issue as we got speaking to a gentleman who volunteers who was going around taking each bunker. I would certainly recommend this course and we have already spoken about coming back to play, no clubhouse or bar but I believe is council run and this isn’t a issue for us plus some of the par 4s are also very long which is great. 5/5 overall for sure!

Greens in good condition. Great value for money and enjoyed it as much as other local courses which are 3/4 times the price! If it had a clubhouse then it’d be a great club to join.
