3rd round at Hobson

Great value for money course. Nice par 5 to start, challenging front 9, easier back 9.
Only issue for me was greenkeeping staff still around front 9 holes at 12pm isn’t ideal

Cracking day

Friendly staff and members alike made us feel very welcome. Course in great condition, forgiving rough around the fairways, but thicker and a challenge around the greens. Would highly recommend

Decent course

Greens were in excellent condition when we played rest of the course could do with a trim and didn’t look like it had been done in a little while but to be fair green staff were on with this, nice and friendly in the shop prior to play.

Great Course for Everyone

Played Hobson for years and always enjoyed it. Lately, they’ve gotten rid of the heavy rough areas and replaced them with trees.

The layout is great for all types of players and you can hit some of you’re best scores here.

Very nice course

Played a 4 ball first time here, staff were very friendly and helpful on arrival, made us all feel welcome. It was a lovely day, the course was in very good condition and the greens ran true. There was no pressure from anyone behind us and the day went perfect. Will definitely play here again.
