Course conditions and facilities improving every time we play there. Looking forward to the end of lockdown to be able to properly enjoy it but just playing golf is a pleasure
Good course. Play was slow though but have played here before and its been okay. Greens were very dry and bobbley but again its been very dry conditions.
Lightning fast greens
Hinksey Heights is a tough course to play at the moment as the dry weather has made the greens lightning fast. Also wasn’t helped by the fact the greens had just been hollow tyned with some greens sanded and some not - so putting was a bit of a lottery. Course has a number of GURs which could do with tidying up but overall it’s a great course and largely forgiving if you stray offline (no rough)
Some tight close fairways
Spring conditioning with a number of small areas under work, but overall very playable. Greens coming out of winter cover so spiked and sandy, didn't spoil the day. Some excellent long holes.
Not a bad way to spend £30 in current times
We got on, and that was the most important thing. Very friendly folk on course, but tee boxes and fairway condition less friendly. The former is probably due to intense use over last 2 weeks. 2 mats.
1st round after lockdown was expecting it to be in better shape than when we left it, it wasn't. Temperary tee boxes on a few holes had just tinned the greens no sand in fill making putting a bit of a lottery, same bunkers gur. Appreciate lockdown rules etc. But was just expecting better. Paid £20 via hotdeal so not bad, certainly not worth the £30 they're charging at the moment
A massive bog
I have played Hinksey multiple times through summer and into autumn which were great, but the last two times I have played in December the course is almost unplayable. Every fairway is extremely water logged, it is like playing in a massive bog. Preferred lies makes little difference other than being able to pull your ball out from being plugged.
Although it was a hailstone down pour at the start of the round, once three holes in the weather eased and it was a lovely scenic round.
The ground was very sodden in parts, however the greens ans fairways held up remarkably well.
Really enjoyable course
Really enjoyed playing this course it was my first time here and I did find it hard to find a handful of the tees from confusing directions on the course but non the less I still had a very enjoyable time playing here. The food after was very nice to ❤️
