Should be in better condition

It’s a nice course. But very tired in places. The condition was just about passable, but way below expected for August. Grass clippings everywhere and many bunkers GUR.
I don’t mind that courses have weeks of maintenance time but they should tell you so when you book. In its current condition it is not a fifty quid course.

Nice enough course but need to tidy things up.

We played behind a 5 ball for most of the round. Really ruined the experience sadly as it was a 5 hour round. Staff were friendly and the starter was great, a great character. Layout was a little strange in places and course condition ok, good some holes, poor on others. Some very nice holes, esp on back 9. Range and putting green were decent enough but Chipping green was bizarre with long grass on the green. Overall was alright value for £35 so 3 stars/5.

First time

Very enjoyable course, fairways in good order despite long dry conditions. Good tee areas and although the greens didn’t look the best they were true and fast. Would definitely recommend it.

Greens has just been sanded which meant the speed was a little slow.
Some fairways were a little sparse and missed some care and attention.
Course not as good as the last time i played there.
Clubhouse facilities were good and the staff very friendly.
Worth playing if you’re haven’t done already

Needs work

Could not fault the staff, very helpful. Booked a single tee time, Golfnow had matched me with a 2 ball which was excellent, two lads very good company on the way round. As for the course it looked very tired and needs a lot of work to bring it back up to a standard where you would feel that you are getting value for your money. Greens where slow and the fairways in a lot of places looked like what you would expect to see between the goalmouth on a Sunday morning between the sticks.

Great challenge

It was damp most of the afternoon, but Dudsbury is a good challenge and was in good condition. Good variety of holes and a decent length at 6,600 yards off white tees. Tee areas are the most disappointing feature.

What happened to it?

Played a few days ago, first time in a few years. Been looking forward to getting a round in here again however the course looks as though it hasn't been looked after in the 7 years since I was last here. The greens were immaculate however that's it. Most of the tee boxes were uneven, full of divots and poorly maintained. The fairways looked more like Sunday league goal mouth than a former award winning golf course. There were huge areas where the grass used to be, underneath the ground was cracked and rutted and made for a very unrewarding round. Considering the price this course is a terrible value, most holiday park pitch and putts will be in better condition than this. Save your time and and money and go elsewhere.

A very good course and it's in a very good condition. The greens are great, there is a lot of lakes and streams to avoid. Also there are many wild fowl which add to the course.

Dudsbury

The course was in excellent condition having just held a Europro tour event. The greens were true and held a ball well. The fairways were well defined and the rough was not to bad if a ball went into the first cut.
The clubhouse facilities are very good and the food is great value for money and has a good selection to choose from. The staff are very pleasant and the food was delivered to the table fairly promptly from the order time.
If you have not played this course it is well worth the visit and you would not be disappointed no matter what handicap you have.

Great Value

Excellent course for all handicaps. First 6 holes were in excellent condition but fairways on the remaining holes were showing signs of wear. Pro shop staff were superb, helpful and very friendly. Other players on the course were considerate. Excellent and roomy club house.
