A gem of a course, beautiful greens and well looked after

This course is immaculately maintained with greens amongst the best I have played on. We were made very welcome and even served our beer by the green keeper. Beware the sneaky stream which snakes it’s way unseen across many of the fairways and adjust your tee shots accordingly. On the second nine I teed off with an iron or 5 wood on several of them. The course may be short but it is a good test of golf and a lovely friendly club

Very well planned course

We were made to feel very at home by the staff on arrival. It's a 9 hole course with 2 pins on each green and the overall length is not that long but they have created difficulty into every hole. The condition of the course overall was very good and the greens were outstanding. The on site facilities were excellent as well and it was very competitively priced.
All in all a great round and I'm looking forward to my next visit.

Pottergate

Despite the recent bad weather the course was in great condition and you can tell it was extremely well cared for. A great layout with a challenge on each hole, despite being short it was difficult to score pars or better playing off 15.
Staff and members were extremely friendly and most accommodating.
Will definitely be back soon.

Enjoyable round of golf

I found the course challenging. It is not a long course but you are required to think your way around this track. The are numerous hazards to avoid and the greens were fantastic for this time of the year. I really enjoyed the day, the clubhouse was welcoming with a great selection of beers. The food presented looked great. I cannot wait for my next round there.

Wet but enjoyable 9 hole hidden gem

This lovely track is hidden away in the Lincolnshire countryside, near the village of Potterhanworth. Me and my playing partner were drawn in an open match-play knockout first round fixture played at this course.

It was wet and boggy in patches but the fairways were no better or worse than most courses, what with the recent hammering of rainfall.

The course has 9 greens with 2 pins on each, making it an 18 hole course. Whilst relatively short in yardage, it is well thought out, and, there is one genuine par 5 and four par 4s which are testing.

The highlight for me was the 220 yard par 3 6th. The pin on the front 9 is located on a top tier which is 30 ft higher than the bottom tier where the pin was located on the back 9. Whilst the tee remained the same, the hole played very differently when comparing the front and back nines (3 clubs difference for myself!).

There was only 1 temporary green in place when we visited and the other 8 all played very true with some tricky undulations to keep you on your toes.

The members we played against were more than hospitable and the staff were also very friendly and food we had afterwards was top notch (Thai curry).

There is a net, a small practice ground and a putting green so enough there to have a decent warm up before teeing off.

All in all, given the weather has not been kind recently, I would definitely recommend a visit and will be returning myself in summer time to play the course at it’s very best.

A little gem of a 9 holer

I found this course when looking for somewhere to play casual golf. I was a 15 handicap but stopped membership due to work commitments and now only play for pleasure.
This is one of the best 9 hole courses that I have played and beats the others locally. All the holes are different and there is even a par 5 with a very tight drive and a par 3 over 200 yards. It has 9 greens but 18 tees and flags so can get a little slow but for £12 offers great value. The club/bar serves good food and the staff are friendly.
