Greens very poor

Played for the 3rd time at this course and was hugely disappointed compared to previous rounds. The course its self is in good condition, well sign posted and the weather was fantastic, however the greens were covered with sand making putting very difficult, this put a dampener on the day.
The pace of play was horrendous, waiting at every tee for the players in front, all be it not their fault as the pace of play in front of them was so slow,.
Over 4 hours to get around a relatively easy course!
All in all i wouldnt put anybody off playing this course but id hate to think you payed your money to experience the day we had.

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.
