Quaint but congested

The course is in a great setting and is a quirky course but there is a considerable amount of criss-crossing and the greens were in a shocking condition

A course for people who prefer scenery to golf

The Club advertises the course as an 18 holer but it's only 9 with multiple tee-off points. Two laps are required to play 18 holes which involves new players starting their round in front of you when you have just played the 9th hole. Obviously this leads to frustrating delays on the second circuit. If you are a Golfnow member don't waste your monthly allowance playing here; your money would be better spent on playing a bona fide 18 hole course.

Course needs better signage for next hole and greens, Great food and drink.

The course generally was in good condition with nice fairways and bunkers. Greens could be better and need rolled but looks like they had just been spiked. Better signage and a better picture overview of each hole on the tee would help as we got confused a couple of times.

Bar, pro shop and food and drink were excellent and good value for money.

Finally views at the top of the course were nice

Great scenery, lots of busy Karen’s around

Not a bad course, good scenery, great staff, good fun. However there are a few Karen’s knocking about. Kicking off if you say a swear word or act non-Tory. A woman walked 600 yards to shout at me for reversing the buggy. She was not a staff member but acted like I was doing doughnuts in an BMW M2. Also a 4 ball shouted at us for hitting a ball that landed a good 600 yards away from them. Nice course but be carful of Karen’s.

Enjoyable course once you get to know the layout but could be confusing 1st time
All holes and tee offs give good directions so keep a good lookout
Fairways good , greens good & will get better over the summer , friendly players & staff
Great price and will be here again
Rating for me 7/10

Snowed in

Although we played a few holes the course should really have been closed with upto 3" of snow in places. We wanted to play as we had not been able to 4 weeks but it really was not playable.
I appreciate in these difficult times the club would not want to refund our money and it will not stop us playing there again.

Great challenge

First time playing, will definitely be back. The course is a credit to the ground staff with all the rain we have had lately it was in excellent condition! Great layout and a challenge to golfers of all standards.

Well maintained but ...........

First time at Glossop so
Positives - Only £10, the course is in great condition, staff/members very friendly + it was a new course
Negatives - very short, I’m not a big hitter but all bar 1 par 4 was a drive then a 6 iron tops, I hit 4 pars to start with, which is slightly unusual for a new course and I played under my handicap of 15.
Biggest issue was it Is only really a 9 hole course that you play twice (different tee box but same green and fairway) so it was very slow, busy, confusing etc.
It’s a pity but unfortunately I don’t think I’ll play again.

Great day out

Course was in great condition. Can be a little criss-crossy but worth a trip out!

Accident waiting to happen

I first played this course when it was empty months ago and didn't foresee what it would be like on a busy day. From the first hole we felt rushed by players doing the back nine, not helped by pin positions being easier to access on the back 9 giving even less time to get ahead and get into the swing of things and most fairways cross eachother, you share most holes with the back 9 and as an example of danger, the 2nd tee is across the par 5 fairway and over the first green, someone will get injured, I will never go back on a busy day

Lovely Course

This isn't the longest course in the world, but it is set in a stunning location and a number of the holes will definately test you. It's basically a 9 hole course, except with 11 greens (the 5th/14th and 6th/15th are played to different greens) and a number of different tees. The tricky bit the first time you play here is knowing where you're actually going on some of the holes, especially when playing the 5th/14th and 6th/15th. The guy in the pro shop kindly pointed out to me where to go, although maybe he should have told my clubs!

This isn't an easy walking course, so be prepared for a number of climbs if you're playing all 18. It is certinly worth the effort though, as the views from the top of the course are stunning.

Would I recommend playing here? If I lived nearby I think I'd want to be a member, that's how much I recommend it.
