Nice tight tidy course

Bullwell forest is not the longest course about but it’s in really good condition and it’s tight so if your a bit wayward, it’s a little challenge for you … green staff out and about friendly to chat too … blowing allleaves off the course , so no issues finding your ball if a bit off target… club house spot on and nice food especially the full breakfast . Defo an inner city course to play if you haven’t

Exhausting day

Not what I expected, far too hilly for me and my playing partner. We only completed 16 holes and decided to call it a day. Very hot day too 30 degreesvery energy sapping.

Not the best

Very disappointed with my choice of course today. Not upto the standards I have been usually playing at.
I think it was very overpriced compared to what we have paid for much better courses.
Course is not in the best condition.

Loads of players

Loads of players hitting balls at each other due to the course layout and the amount of people playing. just charge more and have less playing. Fairway was to long not matter where you hit the ball you are in the rough but the green was very nice. we didn't enjoy having to duck and dodge the ball all the way round. It's like playing dodge ball. We will not be going back even if it was free

Nice

For the money you can’t go wrong. Busy long course so you do get held up on a couple of tees but no more than most. Well worth a visit

Interest to all standards of golf

Played for the first time yesterday. A very interesting test of golf for players of all standards. In some middle areas of the course you have to be aware of the odd ball flying across onto the wrong fairway! Condition of fairways a little rough in places but greens were good to slow.

Cramped course

I played on a lovely midweek afternoon.

The course is very closer together even with shared fairways at a point which slows up the pace of play. The course wasn't in the best condition given the situation and there was little distinction between fairways and rough. The greens were inconsistent and bobbly. I won't be back but for a quick round local I suppose it would suffice
