The course has great views
Myself & my wife play disley quite often but this time the course lacked any care & lots of work had been done but none of It completed.
Bunkers without sand, bare fairways hence playing off mud patches, greens running terribly as not flat, playing off mats on certain holes & men playing off some ladies tees .
I would expect disley to be in good condition coming out of lockdown as it had a rest for 3 months, but this was not the case, in fact the opposite.
In general the course looked unkempt.
Very sad !!
So I understand that winter requires different playing conditions but this should be stated before paying for the course.
The winter greens were being used, only nine holes were open and the condition of the course was relatively sub par, not worth the money sadly.
Good winter round
Following many rainy days, the course was very boggy in places but the greens were in good condition for the time of year. Holes 3 and 4 were under maintenance so we played16 and 17 twice. Staff and members were friendly and despite some early rain, we had an enjoyable round.
Very nice course and value for money. Challenging and very well kept greens and the lay our is great. Amazing view points from some of the holes too.
Staff were great and food was good too.
Great to see a fair few youngsters practising before their rounds also.
We'll be playing here again for sure
Lovely Course and Views
First time on this course. Lovely setting on the border of the peak district. Nice welcome from pro in shop upon arrival. Greens superb, fairways in good nick, great views. Not many places to lose your ball as most fairways wide. 3rd hole tee a bit confusing as you go back on yourself but overall a great 4 hours spent in late summer sunshine. Bonus was half way house on the 9th green, only negative no Bacon Butties!!!
Great Views and time to take them in
Played in a bank holiday. Not a great idea. far to many people on the course. took 4hr25min to play and we kept up to the 2ball in front.
Too many cross tee holes to get a steady flow.
Half way house was open for a much needed beer
I'd like to be writing a positive review of what looked like a good course, based on other reviews, however, one simple issue has absolutely ruined an afternoon on the course for me, and a day's leave to boot. I have no issue with a course needing to maintain the grounds, for future play, in fact its an admirable thing to do, but failing to notify players, especially visitors, that every single green has been hollow tined, leaving tiny winter greens, cut halfway up fairways, at the start of August is woefully disappointing. Nothing was listed on their website, even on the course status, not a word mentioned by the pro on arrival, no signs around the course, and only finding out halfway up the first, even after asking the pro for a course guide (which they don't do), and further friendly chat about some shot selections for blind tees. Add to this that a two ball ahead of me tee'd off, hit useless shots (haven't we all) but then returned to the tee when they couldnt find them, waited for a downpour before teeing off again 5 minutes after my tee time, and then played incredibly slowly, and just shrugged it off that they were without offering to let me through, after hitting it 15 yards off the 3rd tee and that's it, I walked off after 'two holes'!!! Interestingly, walking down the 18th, back to the car park, offered a view of a tee bed set some 75 yards away from a winter green, on a 476 yard par 5!! Honestly, what is the point? Little would anyone know it, but it took me nearly 2 hours to drive here, en route to Sheffield, and has basically wasted an entire day, simply because someome was too lazy to update the course status properly!!!Had I known I would have picked somwhere else and saved Disley for another day. Safe to say though, that this will be my only ever experience of Disley, which was just dismal. Check before you play people as they won't be bothering to communicate anything to you, even when you're stood in front of them.
Haha. Even better, I just went to take a screenshot of the course status, which I checked before booking, then after my attempted play; where it had stated issues around COVID, it now says 'world handicap system', as below, meaning that even on the day the course is playing full winter greens, in the middle of Summer, they've updated the status part way through the day but couldn't be bothered to give an actual status about the course. Utterly useless, and a complete waste of time.
Very enjoyable round
The course layout is in places a little manic with cross overs and same tee locations. But it didn’t affect my day at all - everyone was very friendly and because it was busy - I never got confused as I simply followed the group in front.
The greens were a particular highlight- very consistent- fast and challenging. A 50 ft putt on the last made these greens memorable for me.
I played as a single golfer - and left feeling very happy with the experience. I didn’t test the off course facilities as it was a slow round and I had to shoot off.
Great day out
Although busy the tee time schedule meant there was a good pace of play. Fairways and greens are excellent. Only gripe is a couple of faiorways cross each other
A beautiful course
A beautiful course in the foothills of the peak district, just 25 minutes from the M56 Manchester Airport junction.
Has its quirks, but love it!
Disley is a beautiful course on the edge of the Peak District. Very good condition, greens excellent, couple of tees were a bit chopped up, but otherwise great.
There are a few oddities in the layout. 3rd tee is behind you as you finish the 2nd hole, easy to go to the wrong hole if you're new to the course. A couple of tees criss-cross, which is OK if the course is quiet, also the yellows for the 16th are directly behind the 15th green.
The blind par 3 13th is a tough one to judge for 1st timers, as is the massive unseen ditch on the 14th.
It's a bit of an odd one, but I love it.
Very good course.
Very nice course, fairways good, greens excellent, great views, well stocked pro's shop, half way house was excellent.
