Terrible Gone Down Hill

Course has gone down hill not worth the money we paid ..:: Arrived to be told apologies we was about to ring you only 9 holes open for play. Course extremely wet fairways full of clay all greens diseased 1000s of pounds needed to bring back to standard felt like course has been let to go, could hear other golf groups very dissatisfied. Unfortunately won’t be going back not even for a fiver a round very sad for a once cracking course.

Gatton Manor November

I was interested to see how this course played given that it is 50 years old. It is a very good layout but given the unusually dry spell, being largely built on clay was very wet and needs substantial investment to bring it to the standard to be able to call it a championship course.

Needs Work

Nice layout and challenging course.?however needs a lot of work to bring up to standard. Greens poor, bunkers with grass and very wet. I am sure new head green keeper will sort out.
Will look to pay again next year to see improvements.

Okay for money paid

Course has deteriorated

Played the course a few times previously, approx. 3+ years ago. Unfortunately the condition of the course has deteriorated which is a great shame as it has such good possibilities.

Disappointed

The greens were in poor condition and all the bunkers were GUR. The course is in need of some TLC but you can see its potential even though there are a lot of blind shots.

Facilities were being renovated (or so it seemed) so not the great experience we anticipated but this was reflected in the rate. The staff were very friendly.

Needs some TLC

The course has the potential to be really good. They layout is good and has plenty of good features. But the course is in a state of disrepair and has not been adequately maintained for what appears to be a long period of time. The bunkers are under GUR and have clearly not been touched for a long period of time as they contained more grass than the fairway. The greens were in very poor condition, even for the winter months. Everything else was all a bit wild and needs some time spent of tidying it up. Overall, the course would be transformed if some time and effort was spent of bringing it back to a good condition.

Course was in very good condition for time of year. Greens were well maintained, few bald patches but rolled flat. Fairways were well cut and not boggy

So much potential

Great course that is slowly being restored to it firmer glory. If you are looking for value for money on a beautifully laid out course this should be top of your list. The tee boxes & greens need some work but it’s playable. Looking forward to playing it again soon.

Poor condition, needs lots of work

Played here before quite a few times but would not return soon
Fairways were like semi rough and the semi even longer.
Bunkers were all GUR which is just lazy way not to have to put new sand in them and carry out any repairs
Greens and tees were only ok but again could do with a bit more TLC
Such a shame to see a nice course not being looked after

A good challenge

Haven't played this course for many years and was surprised how long it was and how unforgiving it was if you were not on the fairway!! We both thought that the layout of the course was good and challenging. The bunkers were in very poor condition but we were advised that they were all effectively GUR.

Gatton

This has been a favourite course of ours for many years and it is disappointing to see how poor a condition it has become. Tee boxes not mown and bunkers not raked (rock hard and unplayable). Greens were ok but there is a general lack of TLC. Very disappointing.

You must try Gatton Manor

We have played Gatton Manor many times over the past 5 years or so and I must say that yesterday the course was in the best condition we have ever seen it..The staff were friendly and helpful. The green fee was reasonable as well.. We will definitely return.
The new owners are doing a great job .
