Booked this course whilst staying away with friends. Was fabulous brilliant conditions and a good test of golf. Staff friendly and helpful.
Friendly is a good way to review Horsley and it’s not just the staff the members are also very friendly too, although I have to say it was the bar staff that came out on top.
Great Course saves the day
Booked for last day before lockdown and expected it to be busy. However some additional bookings (?) prior to us meant we teed of about 30 minutes late. We were on verge of walking out and asking for refund when it looked like being an even longer wait, and less chance of completing the round before dark.
The course itself was in very good condition bearing in mind recent bad weather. Winter teeing mats, Fairways fine (winter rules) and greens a bit bumpy after recent pre-winter work.
Pace of play was poor on first nine but as some bailed out with twilight approaching it speeded up. Completed last hole in semi-dark.
Great value for money but the afore mentioned delays meant that we were somewhat rushed and hence only 4 stars.
Will definitely return.
2 and a half hours....6 holes
Shocking pace of play, 45 mins to complete 2 holes,waited every t box,every fairway...
Would not recommend if you want a quick round of golf.
First time playing this course and will most definitely be back again. A well looked after course, greens and fairways in excellent condition and I can honestly say not one bad hole. A challenging course ... keep it straight and pick your way around will give opportunities to score! All in all well worth playing with a friendly atmosphere.
Green keeper wants a bonus
Great day ,welco.ing staff and the course was in superb condition.
Going back next week
The course was very well presented.
The course was lovely, greens were perfect the best me and my brother have ever played on. We have played at what are meant to be better courses but they don’t compare.
A good test with fantastic greens
Course in great condition especially the greens, nice and quick you can trust the roll.
Also a good pace of play.
A real gem
The best greens in all Derbyshire. Honestly, the best. The course is relatively short but you need to be in the fairway as there are trees everywhere and you'll be totally blocked out. The course is pretty hill (it is in Derbyshire!) but well laid out and you don't have other wayward groups in your fairway. The greens are a thing of beauty. So true, good pace and with huge slopes. Sooooo fun much.
I played alone and a 4 ball in front were awful but didn't let me through, which, technically, is fair enough as a single player has no standing (a ridiculously out-dated rule) so I played the front 9 twice - one of the best thing about having two loops of 9 that start and finish at the clubhouse. I've played before so I wasn't really missing out plus I like to have a good practise when I'm playing alone.
Clubhouse bar and 10th hole coffee shop has reopened, obviously with some limitations. Staff are friendly and the pro shop is well stocked and well priced.
Apart from Kedleston Park (which is £50 more for a round) and Cavendish in Buxton it's right up there as the best course in Derbyshire.
Played the course several times. Lovely layout with plenty of ups and down. Stuck behind a 3 ball for 18 holes as a one ball wasn’t much fun.
Enjoyable and in very good condition less the many bare and dead grass patches just off of most of the putting surfaces.
All in all - good.
Nice course, will be better in the summer
First time playing this course and considering the weather of late it was in good condition. I will be playing this course in the summer. Played on temp tees but on all main greens. We played as a 2 ball behind a 4 ball on a Sunday morning and took 4 hours.
Weather held out, 50 seniors were out in front but the play flowed well. Excellent round of golf and great food.
As usual the course was in tremendous condition. tee'd off at 16:45 and basically had the course to ourselves. highly recommended
Good course to play.pace of play was a bit slow.using winter mats which were hard to get tees into on some holes!green in good condition for time of year.would go back and play again
