lovely old school English country course

This is a great golfing complex with an 18 hole and 9 hole course so they can accommodate all comers. I have played both recently and my only criticism would be that the pace of play was extraordinarily slow on both.

Excellent but slow.

A fourball with two buggies ahead were very very slow. They eventually let me thtough. However the course is excellent and beautifully maintained.

Disappointing

Having played the excellent 18-hole course at Mannings Heath, I was surprised at how poorly maintained its nine-hole Kingfisher course was. The green keeping staff are evidently spending all their time on the main course, which possibly makes sense. On each of the nine tees there was virtually no grass. You were teeing up on a bumpy, hard surface. The fairways in general were dry, hard, full of holes and in need of repair. The greens for the most part were acceptable, though again there were many areas in need of obvious maintenance.

Poor

Disappointed with the overall condition. Half the course and half hearted conditioning. Bare patches on fairways greens and tee off area well think there was more soil than grass

Not the best condition.

First time playing here, and I’m a beginner but keen to try as many courses as possible. I found the signage poor, the fairways and greens to be rough and patchy. I also didn’t like the fact that the driving range was very near to one of the holes; the fairway scattered with range balls. One nice view but nothing to write home about.

A shame

Sorry guys - been playing Kingfisher for years. Great value for money and a varied round of golf (course) - and well kept. BUT NOW; half the course,, the half with most of the best holes, has become a vineyard, making this a 9 hole, plodding parkland course. Couldn't muster energy to go the full 2nd 9 - just not enough variety or challenge there now. I understand why you've done it, the course maintenance is still great AND it's still a beautiful tranquil location (with a lovely clubhouse) BUT you've killed the appeal of the Kingfisher (£21 is also now too much).
There's scope to mix it up a bit with new tee boxes for the 2nd 9 - you could get some radical new angles going the second time round. Otherwise it's now just a learner course (or warm up for Waterfall).
A shame, my friends and I have had MANY great rounds on the course, but hey, change happens - hope the wine is good!

Couldn't agree more. We only realised the second nine had been sold off after beginning our round and talking to another group. It's now too expensive to compete with regular 18 hole courses in the area and it has lost most of its charm. Shame
