First Time Playing

Brilliant!!

First time at Malkins bank and it was spot on. Will definitely be playing again. Some really tricky holes especially for a returning golfer such as myself. Pace of play was ok considering it was a Saturday dinner time tee off. Facilities were excellent. Great round overall.

Much Improved

I have played this course numerous times in last 25 years and don't think I can remember it in such good condition. Fairways are slightly fluffy, bunkers well sanded and many of the old rough spots ironed out. We did find the greens very slow I have to say, and the seepage of liquid across the 15th. fairway is something that really needs sorting. The club-house was closed and refreshments available from the Pro shop. The 4th. hole remains a real test, how do you keep the ball on the fairway, even if you hit it right down the middle? May as well add a couple of strokes to your score card even before you get on the tee!

First Time Playing

Absolutely fantastic!!

Played this course for first time yesterday. Arrived on the course, absolutely amazing experience start to finish. Booked on the GolfNow HotDeal and couldn’t believe what I got for the money...

Super friendly and positive staff - you can see how much they love what they do. Perfect bacon butty, good selection of drinks, ice cream etc in the shop,

Great facilities with a driving range & putting green for a warm up and a net too.

Challenging course, but very playable... but a ball off line is might be in the rough or under the trees but rarely lost or in an impossible position needing a drop. Course in BRILLIANT condition on all 18 holes; tees, greens, fairways.

Will definitely return again in future!!

First Time Playing

Good course , variation of holes was ok
Pace of play was poor , I was behind the last three ball of a seniors club match ,not their fault but a massive knock on affect behind them .
Perhaps in future the club should reserve three tee off slots after the last ones go out
I know slots are money but I won’t be going back after that round
Took four and a half hours for 18 holes

The best it's ever been

We used to play here a lot in the old day (20 years or more ago). It was always ok but they've really improved the course conditions now, it's a pleasure the play at with good greens and many lovely laid out holes. The fairway grass was too long this time (my 2nd visit here since coming back to golf after a 20 year break), but I think the sudden hot weather after 3 weeks of rain had caught them off guard a little and they were out sorting that, so no big deal.
I'm actually thinking of joining, it has enough to keep me interested and every hole feels distinctly different.
