Great views of Manchester
Fairways in good condition but greens very ropey , had been spiked and sanded and some very rough grass patches, overall worth playing though but 16th fairway needs some direction markers on tee to show where you need to be aiming as very confusing layout..
Lovely course in a great setting, challenging course for all players alike. Worth a visit if you are like to try different courses.
The course has a great layout, fairways are nice and wide and give great opening to the greens however, unless your approach shot is too within 10 inches of the hole no put in predicable. The greens have obviously been repair recently and are still recovering! They are extremely soft to the point where my ball span backwards while remaining in the divot it has just made.
Overall though it is a well nice course in a nice area with a good level of difficulty for beginners/ intermediate player however I think a low handicap player would find the corse fairly easy.
Good for starters
Greens not in the best condition but I’ll put that down to the time of year.
Great for beginners, not too easy but not overly difficult
Good course, played here several times, unfortunately the greens had just been toned, dressed and soaked so putting was very inconsistent. Has to be done but and will be great in a week but can’t help but spoil the round.
Really good course, had chance to use a lot of different clubs in my bag. Greens had been spiked which made putting a bit tricky, but such a lovely course. Green staff very helpful with tips and directions. Already planning a four ball to show off the course.
Nice course, greens not very good but being top dressed tomorrow, decent variation of holes, excellent value for money, friendly members in clubhouse.
First time visit - very likely to return
We played on a day when the weather forecast was pretty poor, and for the first 4 holes we did get quite wet, after which the conditions improved. As a result, there was virtually no-one else on the course, so we didn't have to wait on a single shot.
Although the course was quite wet in parts and there were a few temporary greens (which we were told about by the helpful lady in the shop), it was evident that the course is being well maintained, and I would expect it to be in great condition after some drier weather. Relatively short with a par 68, there are some testing holes and interest on most.
Overall, a really positive experience despite the rain, and I would expect we will be back later this year.
Sunny day at Marple
Throughly enjoyed my round at Marple I didn't play well but that was no fault of the course. I was playing with my son how also Throughly enjoyed the course we both enjoyed the layout and given the amount of rain we have had recently we both agreed the course was in really good condition. I wouldn't hesitate to go back and play there again or to recommend it to friends or golf societies I play in
Misrepresentation of course
Course advertised as 18 holes open with price of £25. Nothing on course own website to suggest otherwise. Only 9 holes open (1, 2, 6 & 13 - 18 closed). Also due to condition of course mats on fairways or move off fairways & mostly winter greens. We spoke to members on the way round who said course had been like that for weeks!!!
We would have booked somewhere else if we had known. Full details of restrictions should be published when booking or at least on course website.
8 holes all temp greens :(
Only 8 holes open.... all temp greens.... not what you want from a golf course when it shows course status open and no mention of the above until you arrive at the course which I such a shame as this is a very nice course.
It was ok considering the weather
Unfortunately the weather was bad for days before aomonly 17 holes open and 16 of those were on temp greens. Layout was good and I would like to play it in the summer to see what it is like then.
Top value and great condition.
Marple isn't the easiest course to get to. A very narrow road in, but once there it's great value. Fairways were in superb nick for October as were the greens. Lots of interesting holes. Only negative for me is the closing 3 holes which are a funny layout.
