I played Owston hall years ago just before a ladies pga event and it was spectacular, a 7000 yd monster of a course in pristine condition, with a great infrastructure behind it
It looked then like it would be a top Yorkshire golf venue for years to come
What in gods name has gone so badly wrong here
Owston hall 2021 is a shambolic pale impression of its former self
The course has been butchered on the front 9 with 7 holes apparently designed by a blind farmer whose only connection with golf was a hatchback he owned in the 70s
The rest have been left to the elements, pot holed tee boxes, daisy strewn fairways, rock strewn bunkers indeed only the passable greens attempt to halt the disaster of golf here
Your left to your own devices to find your way round, I’d played it before but got lost several times, and don’t expect the course scorecard to help, it’s miles out
It’s such a shame, yes it was cheap on the golf now app but the £30 buggy charge certainly wasn’t….. scandalous
Chuck in a rude abrupt chump on the phone who clearly isn’t
Equipped for a retail career and I’m afraid it’s a one star golf rating from me
The good bar staff and beer garden made a desperate last ditch effort to push for 2 stars but no… it’s the golf that matters and there’s so much better on offer elsewhere
first time playing
needs a few more signs in place for the new golfers at the course (pointing to club house and each tee)
also the cards need an update due to distances being wrong and lucky I had my golf watch to tell me the right distances.
lost a ball in the middle of the fairway due to the daisy's as well.
Played on the 23/05/21 the course condition was not very good the fairways didn't seem to be very well looked after every green had dozens of pitch marks on them unrepaired by other players they were very bobbly too it was on £15 but I won't be playing there again and I wouldn't recommend it,the only up side to the place is they have a nice club house but even the beer was way over priced at £5.60 a pint
Needs lots of work, shame as this could be a fantastic course.
Tees were atrocious, fairways longer than tough, daisies and Dandelions converting the fairways.
Greens saturated clearly a drainage issue on them.
Clearly since the course has stopped hosting euro pro events it has been poorly maintained. The fairways had daisys all over so was impossible to see a white ball and the tee boxes were some of the worst I’ve played on.
Greens in good nick however
Nice layout, needs a lot of work
First time playing here. The course layout is nice and has the potential to be a great 18 holes.
Unfortunately, it needs a lot of work to get it to reach this potential. Greens looked like they hadn’t had maintenance in a long time, fairways full of weeds and tees were either overgrown or had been clubbed to death.
Hopefully this place gets the work it needs soon, until then I don’t think I will be returning.
Good but Confusing Course
Upon arriving at the Entrance it was a nice drive down to the car park finding the reception was no problem , and stated I booked using Golf Now for £12.99 and that was no problem , all Tee times were shown on a screen with names which was good.
I had trouble finding the 1st Tee so I asked some friendly members and found it no problem, could be signed a bit better but once you know the layout it shouldn’t be a problem.
Upon reaching the first green there were sprinklers on it but this is course maintenance and is required and probably won’t be there when you play.
I had trouble finding some holes I think it was the 3rd i nearly tee off a completely different hole until green keeper told me the 3rd was behind me and had that problem a few times along the way, a lot of tee markers were not marked so could make you unsure of the hole but once you learn the layout I suppose its fine one good thing about the layout is you can seamlessly go from the 9th I think it is to the 16th which is good if you want to shorten your game.
Bunkers were in good condition and so were the greens in all fairness but were playing slowly so bare that in mind .
Overall 3/5 only because of Tee,s not being marked up and lack of signage for Hole Directions (Only a issue first time), all staff were spot on and everybody who was playing were really friendly definitely will return.
Lovely parkland course
Have played here many times & like it because its Flat!! it's usually been quite busy but,we were pleasantly surprised how quiet it was,the course in general was good however,the greens,though quick had small grooves in them but,overall I would recommend this course and will come again
Course is really short from what it used to be. Tee offs are like playing on an horse field really overgrown rough and the greens were in a poor state you wouldn’t think there were any green keepers and it was full of 4 balls so pace is really slow I walked off after 8 holes Won’t be going back anytime soon
Beautifully presented course, a good mixture of holes. Really enjoyed playing here
Played a few times since the revamp and new holes added fairways excellent, greens were 6-7 out of 10 could do some work but I’m sure they’ll get better over summer.
