Great test.

The course was in excellent condition despite a period of drought. Greens were the best I have played on for a long time.

Welcome Spa & Golf Stratford

Let me start by saying that this is a very nice course with some great holes. However today our round was spoilt completely by the rough. The first cut was 3 or 4 inches deep and the grass was very thick, so balls just disappeared and were hard to find, between the 3 of us we lost about 10 balls in the first cut. The main rough was again very thick grass which was between 12 and 28 inches deep and through the whole round we only found about half a dozen ball that went into this stuff. While the fairways and greens were in very good order the round was completely spoiled by the rough. The course was quiet however with having to search for balls the round took 5 hours .15 minutes and to rub salt into the wound all the facilities were closed when we finished at 6.15, as it was 26 degrees we were desperate for a drink so we went to the adjoining hotel where the drinks were very expensive ( £5 a pint). So a very disappointing experience on what is normally a decent course.

Slow; slow, slow

Hotel courses don’t seem to try and this was no exception.
Slow 4 ball prompted two groups behind to merge into 5 ball and no Marshall about to prevent my two ball taking 5 hours.

Never again.

Welcome Golf

The rough on the Welcome course was very rough and certainly needed mowing down to a reasonable height.
I clearly understand what the rough part of the course is meant for but to loose a ball ever time it enters the rough is a bit unfair.
One further complaint was that the putting practice range was awful, all but about two matts had rubber tees in place and none of the mats were level and felt like sandpaper.

Decent condition

Pace of play was a bit slow but overall didn’t spoil the enjoyment. Course in reasonably good condition with lots of up and downs it won’t suit everyone.

Careful with the booking process

When I booked the round through Golf Now the first payment appeared to suggest it failed, when I tried again I got the same fail rate. On checking the payment processed twice, for one round. Have tried to contact Golf Now, but the numbers do not appear to work.

Excellent Condition & Fantastic value for money !

Having had some extremely heavy rain over the last few days, I was pleasantly surprised how good the condition of the course was. The fairways were well defined and well trimmed and the greens were the best I have played on this year. The only disappointment was that there were large puddles in a few of the bunkers, but that was very understandable. Would highly recommend this course and can't wait to return. Thank you for an enjoyable day and a memorable experience !

A challenging course testing even the best golfers

The course has lots of Hazardous holes with water & norrow gapes testing even the best golfers skill to the limit to lay up or go fore the challenge?
The buggy's have rangefinders computers screens with
distance to the hole & marks your score.
We booked with Golf Now which we find a great Web site. Can't be beat on price.
The Welcombe staff are professional & friendly we call the club to ask fore a golf buggy
We found Richard Fullour golf club staff very helpful our buggy was ready to use on arrival
Thank you
The Hotel is of a high standard which we would recommend highly
