Played here for the first time in 7 years and it is still in good condition with the exception of the pitchmarks in every green. We did play mid afternoon and the greens were receptive and quick and I am sure they have a lot of traffic but I cannot remember seeing as many pitchmarks on any course ever. Pretty poor from members on such a beautiful course. For me the 4th, 16th and 18th make this course worth playing alone and the bunkers that come into to play from the 5th onwards make it a pleasant challenge. Would definitely play again....just to get the ferry on 18!
Nice course...in good condition.
Views around the course are stunning. Nice friendly staff all round the course and clubhouse.....Made you feel welcome.
Lovely Round at Brocket Hall. Beautiful course, very Picturesque. The only thing I would feedback is that there needs to be much better signage around the course regarding next Tee etc.
A good course but (despite this time of year) I expected it to be in better condition. When paying premium prices (it would have been £100 if I had booked ten mins earlier) you expect the best and this isn't it. Actually finding the club house is difficult enough and the layout of the (admittedly cast) place seems confusing to a newcomer. The course was shortened by about 1000 yards I would estimate which is a bit much in my opinion. I understand the time of year it difficult but it felt like for the premium prices being paid I deserved more. The staff are very friendly and it certainly looks like a very nice place to eat etc but when compared to similarly priced places (such as the Grove) this falls somewhat short for me. A nice place to visit, but I'm not sure the golf is the prime focus here.
