Interesting course

The first time I played here I had a buggy; this time I walked and enjoyed it more. I really like this course, it is quite challenging for me a 15 handicapper but a fair test, course was in excellent condition; will play again.

Give Woosie some love!!!

Myself & a friend played the Woosman course on 14/04/21. The weather was cold but dry.
Anticipation was high as the Ian Woosman had a major hand in designing the course & I’m pleased to report that there is no doubt that the design of the course is excellent with subtitle hallows & well positioned green side bunkers & narrow false fronts to the greens meant that a well executed approach shot was required to access the flag. Although the fairways were in good condition the sad fact was that bunkers were missing sand & were left untidy. Whilst the greens were in poor condition & several tee boxes were patchy & some looked unkept. So overall the course was generally good but it could have been so much better if a little more love & attention was spent on greens, bunkers & tee boxes. If this was done then the Woosie course would provide a great golf experience that the design deserves.

Not the gem it once was

It is over 10-years since I played this course and unfortunately it has slipped in terms of presentation and upkeep. It still represents a good challenge and can be enjoyed but it has been somewhat neglected over the years, which surprised me a little as the sister course at the Oxfordshire is kept in much better condition..

Wonderful course

Course is well designed with the course being in excellent condition. Played with a friend who is a member there three times now - well worth the drive from Brighton.

Good design, greens decent, fairways on the way back

After the serious Leatherjacket Beetle issues, the course is now starting to get back to normal.
Fairways are still noticeably bare in places, but you can see the work that has been done.
Recent dry conditions and lockdown couldn't have aided the recovery.
Greens were good, bar 2 of them, where what looked like bird damage had occured.
The course remains challenging and with hard ground it was tough to hold fairways and greens, even with decent shots. The rough was distinctly cut at 2 levels and balls hard to find unless you were almost on top of them.
Nevertheless, it was noted that via Golf Now, 2 weeks ago the Green fee was £50 and i wouldnt have paid that. However, with the fee dropping to £35 i thought it was worth a go.
Course was quiet and significantly more were playing the Old Course.
I would hope by the end of the Summer, the course would be hopefully nearing a significantly better condition and near nornal, allowing golf to be enjoyed by all.
Clubhouse was closed due to Virus conditions of play.

Too wet - should have been closed

It’s a shame - don’t really think I should have been allowed to play, course was just too wet and waterlogged...

Always good to swing the clubs but in hindsight I wish I had cancelled as it became a grind.

So sad to see

This course is in such a poor state. Such a shame as used to be a joy to play. Tees and fairways are shocking, presumably as a result of the drought. The greens are well looked after which makes it just about playable. Never worth £31 though.

Challenging course but in a poor state

The course has the potential to be really good and a stiff test off the white tees. Unfortunately the tee boxes were really bad and the fairways heavily cracked due the weather. Unfortunate as it is with the weather the course could of been presented better. The greens though were excellent and likely the course will need 6 months recovery from this heat wave.
Straight drives disappeared in cracks in the fairway never to be seen together with the heat made a difficult day!

...

The worst condition course I’ve ever played. Fairways the turf has come up and formed cracks in between pretty much on every hole! They might aswell shut the course instead of making people pay to play that

Greens and bunkers can’t make up for the rest of it.

This came highly recommended from friends. The layout, bunkers and greens were great. Unfortunately the tees, fairways looked like Mars from Total Recall. On multiple occasions balls either lodged in the cracks in the fairways or kicked 90 degrees from hitting them. It looked like turf had been laid over a soil base then left to die and was split into what can only be described as islands. No signposts indicating where the next tee was. Overall the course looked like it had been left to die.

At £31PP we felt well and truly ripped off. I’d be truly embarrassed to charge half this amount and by how deserted it was, I’d say most have already cottoned on.

Worth a visit

Great course, superb greens. If you get lucky, as we did, you can play here when the course is empty. It does get busy and slow at times, but overall this place is value for money.
