Worst winter round ever

After the recent poor weather myself and playing partner didn't expect too much of the course conditions but having seen their course status for the previous day with all 18 greens being on we thought we'd give it a try.
Firstly it cost £14 which in today's market isn't a lot for a round of golf however if we'd have know beforehand what was to come I'd have been disappointed at traveling 40 minutes to pay even £5.

I completely understand the necessity to use winter greens and have no problem at all playing on them to protect the full greens however what we played on were the worst I have ever played on and ruined
the round, the whole course was wet through and splodgy and should really have been shut instead of charging people to play.
There were 11 winter greens which consisted of a flag in the fairway (not mown at all no idea of distance and any difference in fairway to green also some 100 yards short of every green, the worst part was that 6 of the greens (fairway flags) were the bigger winter cups, 3 were smaller normal cups and 2 were the funniest thing I've ever seen the top half of the hole was cut out with a spade at the bigger cup size with the bottom half of the hole being a smaller cup size it was an embarrassment. How can a course that gets so wet not prepare for winter weather golf and at least mow a separate area no effort made at all, they were also on some of the wettest parts of the course and also on ridiculous slopes at times with better options clearly available it's like they'd had some work experience guys as greenkeepers with no golf knowledge at all.

Sorry for the long post but feel people should know about how poor it was, will not be returning.

A challenging course

I have to say that Ormonde fields is a really interesting and challenging course. The layout is great and the variation in holes is enough to keep you interested and wanting to go back again. The greens are probably some of the best I’ve seen recently. It’s a very hilly course which is good, but we happened to go on seniors day (Tuesday and Thursday apparently) and the play was very slow. I’d totally recommend it but do your homework before booking as you can pick up a reasonably priced round here.

It really is a Hidden Gem

Whilst looking for a new venue I came across this one and was intrigued as I had never heard of it. A couple of the recent reviews referenced this as a "Hidden Gem" which was enough for me to book a round. It certainly did not disappoint with every hole interesting in its own way. The fairways are relatively generous but as so many holes are shaped with no boring up and downs that you need to be in the right area to avoid adding yardage to your approach. Bar the par 3's I can't recall standing on the tee and seeing the flag.
Chap in the pro shop was friendly as was the lady in the club house who whipped up a fabulous freshly cooked breakfast roll for us. The greens were a little slow but to be fair it is October and it did look like they had recently had some work done on them.
Will definitely be back

Ok round we were a 2 ball with a 1ball behind us we being held up with play in front not a promblem with the amount of leafs on the course it was some times difficult to find your ball then on the 9th hole we had teed off and the one ball just teed off with is ball landing near us he then just strolled up we let him carry on with no apology from him for hitting his ball near us bit rude I thought I pretty sure he was a member left a bad taste in the mouth

Brilliant course - hidden gem

Played this course for the first time and it’s an absolutely stunning course. Considering the heatwave conditions recently the course was in brilliant condition, thoroughly enjoyed the layout of the course and is very testing. A real hidden gem

An absolute hidden gem

This is a must play course in the Midlands; quiet and hidden away it was in particularly good condition given the recent drought weather, fairways were much greener than anywhere else I had seen. The layout is very interesting, with many risk-reward holes, and good play is rewarded but bad play is punished.throughout the course, all carefully placed to catch poor shots. There are many ditched and ponds The interest begins with a 90 degree dogleg short par 4 over a pond. The 4th hole is a stunning par 5, a downhill tee shot and then a narrow approach to the green which drops off on two sides and has a road on the other. The 10th in one of the most challenging par 5 holes I have ever come across, a boomerang-shaped beast of over 600 yards off the white tees. The 17th is the standout par 4, 446 yards with a blind drive over a hill to a fairway that sweeps around to the left with trouble on both sides. Having played the course the first day I was so impressed I went back and played it the very next day. It is definitely a course where you benefit fro mhaving played it before. And at £15 for a midweek afternoon round, you will not find a better value round anywhere - a great golf course.

Great course

Lovely course with a great layout. Plenty of signs to get you to the next tee as you do have to intertwine. To say we haven't had any rain the greens are excellent as are the tees. The bar could do with a refit but the staff in there are really friendly. Would definitely recommend.

Condition of the course

Selected this golf course because the fairways are always very green compared to many others which are very dry due to the hot weather.
Tough course but every hole offers something different.

Lovely course, tight in places

First time here and it was a solo round. It really is a lovely course in magnificent condition. Although some pretty basic holes, it is quite tight in places with a lot of up and down. Really enjoyed the round and the friendliness of all other golfers I saw out on the course that day.
