Great course and super friendly staff!

Played here a few times in summer and winter now. Well maintained over winter months and very playable across the whole course. Staff were very welcoming and friendly! If I were to get a membership, I’d get one for this club!

Good autumn golf

The course was in good shape overall. Greens were excellent - great pace and well kept, fairways were very good and enough hazards to keep you honest and thinking about your shot.
The bunkers were awful, however. Only one had actual sand in it. The rest were rock hard and full of stones which did detract from the round the green play. We mentioned it afterwards and were told they were “work in progress”. For a course of this supposed standard it was disappointing.
That aside, as it was mid-week, it was quiet and there was only a fourball in front who let us play throug, so pace was great.
We played the first nine and then 19-27 which was a great choice to have. Although you can’t select that option on GN, we asked in the shop and the guy changed it for us. I would recommend the extra 9. But, get a buggy as 19 and 27 are a bit of a hike from the clubhouse.
Will be playing again.
Just fix the bunkers, please.

Nowhere near value

Pro shop staff wanted me to pay, though I’d pre-paid on GolfNow; resolved by showing confirmation.
Course condition was very disappointing: Raghu tee boxes, un-mown fairways, diseased and woolly greens, sandless bunkers.
Seriously, only worth about half the £33 we paid: definitely won’t be back!

Sllloooowwww first 9 but a good course in good shape.

We were late teeing off, as were the guys in front and those in front of them. And we had a 2 ball behind us so we were waiting at the tee, middle of the fairway etc with guys breathing down our neck. It was just too busy. But after the first 9 those in front and behind dropped off (maybe members having a quick 9), and it was much better. A good layout with plentyof trees. The greens are all pretty flat so not very challenging but all in good nick. I would recommend and will definitely play again… when it’s quieter.

Lovely evening but…

Always enjoyed the layout at Oulton but the quality of the course condition was poor when we played. The greens were very slow, the fairways uncut and the bunkers dreadful. It feels like the course is suffering from a lack of care and investment and I hope they get it back soon.

A joke

of many years playing golf all over the world this is the worst maintained course I have ever played, greens a complete joke, fairways are like the rough on most courses, over two days never saw one one green keeper ?
Should turn it into a nature park and let everyone enjoy it, as for a golf course, DONT BOTHER.
Staff in hotel try their best and hotel not bad.Service very slow but I guess during difficult times its the best we can hope for.

Disappointed

A real disappointment. Really nice course layout, but badly neglected. Even in the current circumstances, grass growing in bunkers that were rock hard, is not really acceptable on a course of this supposed quality.
Bad management?

Poor experience

Played 19-27 and 1-9. Booked on for a time. Course seemed overbooked. Waited 30 minutes after booked tee off time to finally get away. Then got caught behind too many slow 4 balls from a booked group of 20! Really? All stood at the 19th tee together with no social distancing. The design of this course is one of the best in Leeds but the conditions of it are in some state - especially 19-27. The tee off areas are worn. The greens sluggish. Not the standard you’d expect for the price you pay. Disappointing.

Absolutely awful!

In my 30 years of golfing this has to be the worst kept course I have ever played. Greens are not cut, fairway are full of mud and where there is grass it has not been cut, tee boxes are full of mud and matt play is not enforced. The rough is so thick is likely hasn’t been cut since summer. The course is so poor you can’t find half your balls hit in the fairway. Absolutely no maintenance put into this course whatsoever and I would not pay to play here again.

Great Course

Really good test of golf. Quite busy but fortunately no hackers when we were on. Remember when this was a municipal course and imagine it can be very sloww= when busy. Some tough holes, especially towards the back end. advice : stay right!

Greens need work

I have played Oulton Hall many times in the past, but I don't think the greens have ever been in a worse condition than they were for this round.
The recent weather has been hot and dry, but the greens were simply far too firm.
They barely took a pitchmark and the roll was ridiculous, turning good shots for all four of us into bad ones.
Some tee boxes are in terrible condition and need repairing urgently.
Other than that, the course was in great condition and played as tricky as ever

Needs some maintenance

The course itself is great, with some challenging holes and plenty of variety, and I managed a birdie which is always a bonus.
However, some of the tee boxes were in terrible condition making hitting a decent tee shot difficult. On the 3rd we actually teed off from the whites rather than yellows because the tee box was in such bad condition.
The previous day had really wet weather, but on the 12th the rough to the right of the fairway was practically unplayable with how boggy it was and how long the rough was.
Despite these minor issues, the course was in great condition as usual and provides a challenge for golfers.

Oulton

Booked for 10:30, on arrival told the system wasn’t live and we were now playing at 11:00. No contact before hand to inform us of the change.
The course was very poor even considering the time of year. Tees were terrible and rough, bunkers were more stones than sand. There was an awful lot of branches on the fairways that could of been cleared. We only saw one groundsman all day.
It’s a real pity as the layout of the course means that if looked after it would be really good.
