Sunday golf

I was advised by a friend who played the course some years ago that it wasn't very good.
How wrong he was,really enjoyed our 18 holes.
I have been playing along time at a decent level,this is a very interesting layout.
Considering it was November the greens where very good as where the fairways.
I loved the undulating fairways and position of the greens.
I only went in 1 bunker which was your typical bunker in winter, hard and wet in places.
There is a driving range here if you need too warm up before playing.
We were welcomed by members and had a drink and sandwiches after the round.
Just 2 minor faults that we noticed and these didn't impact on our course enjoyment.
The carpark near the pro shop is very scruffy and untidy.
Also they could do with having easy access to a bathroom as we had great difficulty gaining access to the clubhouse.
Perhaps one close to the pro shop.
Would I play there again!.
Absolutely really enjoyed the course, if it wasn't 40 minutes drive I would consider asking for a membership

Great course great staff. Another North West gem

First of.all let me start by saying the staff here are very friendly. I paid on GN last week for Sunday but for some reason GN defaulted to Friday so I have paid twice but only played once. I spoke to the gentleman at the booking office and he is doing all he can to see if I can be reimbursed or some deal made, which would be great but I wouldn’t expect anything but still knowing that the staff are doing their best is of great comfort. Secondly the course is tip top condition considering it rained all morning. Greens were lovely and fairways were nice. Well worth £25 for a weekend. Some great holes some very challenging like the 18th 445 par 4 uphill. Very tough. This course will challenge any player.

Great complex

Felt like you were playing at a full golf complex. The main course is great with some good holes and some that are nice and easy to birdie. Layout was great and green condition was really good (tiny bit long but we played in late Oct). Sand quality was good and fairways were pretty standard. They also had a driving range, chipping/putting green, par 3 short course for wedge play. The clubhouse is small but had a warm welcoming vibe to it. Great lunch selection for half way as well. Definitely coming back here for the green fee price we paid.

Great natural layout, but rude staff.

Love playing Hart Common. Played here many times over the past 8/9 years. The natural layout is stunning, especially on the back 9, however I always find the staff to be quite arrogant, which is a shame.

Nice course but pace of play abysmal

We teed off before 9am, actually 15 minutes late as the tee was already running behind. It eventually took 4.5 hours to get round as a 2 ball on a Sunday morning.
Apart from the pace of play the course was a good challenge and in good condition given all the rain recently.

Slow play

Played on a Saturday, no mention of it being the “club masters tournament” anywhere on the site before booking, round took 5 hours in total with waits on every tee box, just pathetic!

Lovely course, superb greens

Played on Monday with my lad and the course itself was in great condition.

You can see where there has been work on the drainage, which is good for future rounds ( which I am sure we will partake). The tees weren't in great condition as they are all being worked on and have been seeded. That said they were consistent and well signed.

The only slight issue I had was the depth of sand in the bunkers, of which there are plenty. The sand itself was of the heavy bunker type and twice I grounded my club on what appeared to be a liner!

So all around a good course, well priced and I would recommend it easily
