Poor greens

Would not recommend playing at the moment the conditions of the greens are terrible. I have played this course once before and had no issues so hopefully they resolve this quickly. If I had known about the condition of the greens before I would not had booked to play here.

Greens virtually unplayable

This is a decent course in the main, but it just so happened we’ played just after the greens had been hollowed tined, when there are hundreds of 10-15mm holes in the greens. I understand that this is necessary but if they were rolled as well it would be so much better.
That aside it’s a decent long course and value fur money.

Good value, very friendly staff and other players

Good value but you get what you pay for, bunkers have very little sand and greens need some attention. Was very very busy, back to back the whole way round but that's not the courses fault. Tees and fairways are fine, adequate challenge for your average golfer, nearly all greens perfectly flat

Excellent course but…

Had a great day at Calderfield golf & country today
Started with a breakfast, pitch & a putt then out on the course for 18 holes and finished with a refreshing drink in the 19th. Staff was all friendly & helpful. There was only 1 thing with the course that caught my eye today and it was the difference in the quality of the bunkers from around the clubhouse/pro shop compared to the bunkers further out, i.e no sand and grass growing in them but that was literally the only thing I could fault it for.
Definitely will return & thinking on joining as a member

A testing golf golf course

Having played Calderfield many times the course was in good condition except for poor depth of sand in the bunkers and sand on the various greens hampering consistent pace whilst putting on the greens.

Decent test

Course is tight tree-lined with plenty of water hazards. Played as a pair and neither of us found bunkers but they did look like not much sand in some of them. Greens were quick and level and without too many borrows. Fairways and tee boxes in good condition. It rained throughout our round but still enjoyable. Only criticism is holes were a bit "samey " and flat without much character.

Not worth £22.50

Greens an absolute mess. Bare, uneven and lifting in places. Have played municipals with Better greens. Not a £20.00 course.

Avoid

Took just under 5.5 hours to play a round due to the overcrowding on the course having to wait 10-15 mins to tee off on most holes! Greens are not in the best condition and several bunkers around the green where filled with water. Overall a bad experience and cannot see myself returning due the overcrowding of the course issue!

Tight course - much overlapping play

This course is quite tight for the first 9 holes and opens up somewhat for the second. There was a lot of waiting on the tees and players backing up which is quite frustrating. It took us over 5 hours to complete 18 holes

Give it a miss

I’ve played Calderfields on many occasions and have always found it to be a decent, value-for-money course. Unfortunately, it currently looks a tired venue, with the greens almost unplayable. They were patchy, at best, or bald in many areas. At £23, I think I’ll give it a miss for a while.
