Pace of play!
Really disappointed to find out I was placed as a single behind two incredibly slow four balls…. Both groups refused to let me through despite completing only 5 holes in 2hours!!
Really spoilt the experience and I left after the 8th as I couldn’t take it any longer…..
Practice Putting green far slower than out on course …
Lady behind the bar was friendly to end on a positive
Good Experience at Portal Premier
3rd time here in last couple of months.
Course in reasonable condition and quite challenging.
Good value and easy to book.
Staff very pleasant.
Porta l premiier
Good course with interesting layout, not chuffed to be behind a society could of been warned about that.. Apart from that good day all round played of whites and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Great course layout.
some really good tee positions made me have to use every club in the bag and have to shape the ball whilst applying some course management. The greens in areas where like glass and it was tricky to stop the ball on the green.
The course had some really interesting holes dog legs, elevated tees into par 3’s.
Great course, challenging due to weather conditions. Could do with some sand in the bunkers.
Great value on super course
First time played here in 20 years. Course in superb condition including greens. Some great holes here.
A Good Challenge
The quality of my golf did not match up with the course!!, overall a good walk.
Prefer Portal Championship Course but that is a personal opinion and not a poor reflection on the Premier Course
Nice condition course!
Well presented and challenging course. Tee boxes in good condition. Fairways in good condition and greens in great condition. Bunkers need a good rake but play it as it lies!
Nice friendly staff. Young lad in the pro shop very helpful. Nice waitress service too.
I would both definitely play this course again and fully recommend it also.
Excellent layout with friendly staff and welcoming. Only let down was the greens were very slow which I was expecting them to be fast as not been in use for a long period of time.
The course was muddy and water logged in places and shouldn't have been open in my opinion. Some points of the course where that wet we nearly fell over on several occasions.
I would like to play it again in the summer as I think it would be a fantastic course when it is dry
Overbooked. Really slow. Poor Condition.
Really disappointed with the course conditions for August, some fairways were as thick as the first cut and it was extremely wet and cut up by buggies. The first tee box is a mud patch. We were told when we arrived that a society had gone out and were slow, it took 3hr 20mins for the first 9 holes...nuff said!
This has the potential to be a great course - but I won’t be back in the near future...
Felt the course needed a cut. Front nine is squashed in and the second is long and difficult. Odd use of red stakes on some holes but not others was misleading and unrewarding. Could be a lot better. Greens were untended and slow with bumps. Lots of very short or super long holes.
2nd time this year
Played about 3 weeks and my opinion is still the same.Great value,layout and condition.
No complaints and highly recommend
Some great holes, but poor condition.
Very hilly course making it nice and interesting, some great par 3’s and some good dog-leg holes. Course was in poor condition; long fairways and tee boxes, spongey and very slow greens.
I was looking forward to playing this course for the first time in 8 years. I elected for the Premier course as I remember this being the superior course and a great challenge.
I was disappointed to find the greens to be so poor, the fairways like playing a field and the general course to be so badly presented.
It seems as though the course has been massively neglected and I will not be returning.
