Drax Golf Club

Challenging course, spoilt by the metal fences around the first and ninth due to soil contamination.
Signage could be improved due to new layout, but putting green, chipping range good addition.
No golf facilities that are availabile at the Club, told to book in line. Walk from car park to first tee is long- no need to go into Club???

Nice challenge

I am not usually a fan of playing a 9 hole course twice as an 18 off different tees. But i was a big fan of this course after playing it. You don't play the same 9 twice as there are 4 or 5 holes you only play once. Nice challenging design with a fair bit of water. Definitely play again. Greens were kept really well and the whole course was in great condition as well.

Excellent Track

I was a bit concerned after the first 2 holes that it would be a boring course but it certainly wasn’t. From tee to green this course is a credit to the green keeping staff. Some of the greens could have been more testing. The only downside is the hike from the car park to the first tee. All in all a great day out and will definitely return.

Good value for money

Wanted to play Drax as playing in a competition later in the month. Course conditions were really good, hardly anybody on the course so very relaxing game. Only played the twelve holes but while short all make you think so enjoyed it.

Enjoyable round of golf.

Course was just drying after winter. On mats and some winter greens. Nice clubhouse and staff. Will play again in summer.

Bargain hidden gem

Honeslty - for the price you just can't go wrong. Some challenging holes here - par 3s are a lot of fun! The course layout is a bit funky but once you know where you are honestly give this place a go; for the money it is a bargain.

Great little course

Really enjoyed the course. It was the first day of the new course layout which was a bit confusing but didn’t spoil anything. It’s been a very wet period so pleased to see all the course and greens open . We didn’t really see any staff as we were off very early but a member was very helpful
We had intended to eat there afterwards but again we were too early to sample any food
Overall though a great day out, very reasonably priced and we will certainly go again

Excellent hidden gem

A hidden gem. Don’t be fooled by the inauspicious start. No changing room for non members and no pro shop etc … but friendly staff serving food and drink. Then a bit of a walk over a bridge to the first tee. However, worth the wait when you get there. The course is fairly short but was in lovely condition, with well thought out dog legs and small cambered greens. Absolutely loved it .. and an absolute bargain of a price to play. Not busy and those who were on the course, were really friendly. Can’t recommend this enough for those who just want a nice round of golf. Will definitely go again.

A lot of work on going

Always enjoy playing here, everyone really friendly and welcoming, hardly anyone on the course and flew around the first 6 or 7 holes. Shared tee boxes become a little crowded but no worse than normal. The main frustration was the ongoing work on the fairways which are dug up and roped off on some holes..no prior warning when booking but hopefully once completed the course will get back to usual high standards, greens were good and everywhere else was good condion given the recent rain, will return when fairways are repaired fully. Thanks.
