Nice course let down by staff

Walked off after 14 holes when 3 tee times were waiting to play the 15th, then waited 20 mins to even be served at a table for a drink! Very negative feel from the staff in pro shop and bar Not what you expect after paying decent money for the round

Fantastic Course let down by the Greens

The course is a excellent test of golf with some great holes. Unfortunately the greens were not in good condition. Despite the break caused by a Covid lockdown the greens were bumpy and had many poorly repaired spots.

Breadsall

Played in wet conditions, arrived to be told only 14 holes would be open.
There were winter tees on, some holes, however some holes had no markers so not sure whether you were on a mat or not.
Temporary greens, but instead of a proper temporary, a hole had just been cut in the fairway on one hole.
Overall, pointless to pay and travel to for 3/4 of the course in poor condition

The course condition was adequate

I have played this course a numerous occasions in the past, but was a little disappointed on this occasion, as the greens and approaches although a reasonable speed, were overly firm, verging on concrete like, with very hard bounces and not easily accepting of a higher shot onto them, shame really as it did spoil the enjoyment a little, perhaps a little more use of the sprinklers would help.

A Midlands Classic

The layout and design of the course is excellent, especially the back 9. A good challenge for a golfer with a handicap of 5 to 25.

Fantastic condition

Great lush green fairways for the time of year.
I played as a one ball and was let through by two other groups.
The greens were a little slow as the green keepers have obviously protected them during this recent hot weather by leaving them a little longer.
Overall impressed by the fantastic condition.

Early morning round

Course is in OK condition. Greens super slow however. Most annoying and what spoult tge round was one greenkeeper who was pretty much on every hole we played. Rude ignorant and we had to wait whilst he mowed - surely he could have gone out well agead of the forst groups as he certainly slowed down the pace of play thus slowing down the pace of play for the whole day.

Soggy, boggy grounds leading to bogeys, double and triple bogeys.
I am sure it a very good course to play in good weather.
