Fabulous fairways

Fairway grass notably good, greens good too.
Course is quirky as ever. Classic parkland first 9, quite narrow in parts, but some very steep climbs making interesting holes in second 9. My favourites are 12 and 16. We return to play every 4 months or so.

Lovely course, stunning views

Beautiful little course with very friendly staff and locals, only criticism wad the fairways were a tad long, add that to the damp dew grass and you were losing maybe 40yds a shot through no travel across the ground, I have however played here before and its usually beautifully cut so it was just the one off

1ball

Came to ply on my own, first time at the course. A little confusing as to where the tees were, however thoroughly enjoyed. Some of the holes were very challenging but enjoyable, notably the 12th! Will be coming again,

I brought this a few weeks ago to play when lock down ended. Got told by the pro I couldn’t play for some stupid reason. Haven’t got my refund back

Cold weather
Walked

First after lock-down

Enjoyed getting out again.
Course in reasonable condition but surprisingly wet in places and there were areas needing protection if they're not to deteriorate quickly.
First time I've had to carry in a very long time.
For those who know the course, we decided not to take on the very hilly 10-12, but instead played 1-9,1,15-18 and that worked just fine. Got in no-one's way.
Only one criticism was the poor attention to temp. greens, but happily these were only on 1&17.
Look forward to returning in the Spring!

Crediton Golf Course

Surprising that this was only the 3rd day after another Covid lockdown ended it was carry only, no trolleys. Once on the course you could see why, lots of places sodden.
Played first nine and then missed out 10,11,12,13 & 14 and skipped to 15. Rain showers, gusty wind, hail and sunny spells. A couple of temporary tees and greens. The temporary greens were very rough, perhaps set up at short notice.
If the wet weather continues I suspect the course will close to avoid a mud bath.
Have played this course several times and generally I'm happy, this time the ground conditions made it a lot less enjoyable.

Great enjoyable course

Had a lovely round of golf today, the course was in great condition, greens pitted nicely and were a good pace. The fairways were good with plenty of lush grass, plenty of variety with several par 3’s and lots of good par 4’s. A good test for most abilities I play of 4 and shot 5 over, which was good for a first time around this track, would be great to go again and see if I can better the score. Did not use the club house and the pro shop man was quite busy to chat. Good course and worth playing

Hidden Gem

Beautiful parkland course, a bit off the the beaten track, but well worth the visit. The front 9 is quite flat with a good mixture of par 3,4,& 5s, the back 9 is far more hilly but has some fantastic holes, especially 12a (what a hole). Course was in good nick. tee boxes and fairways nicely cut, greens were pretty good though a little slow for my liking. Clubhouse, members and all the staff were really friendly and helpful. All in all a great days golf and will go back and play again.

Great course, challenging and set in a great location

I love playing this course, fantastic scenery and a great course with some nice long holes for the hard hitter and some nice technical holes. Great in summer and winter.
