Myself and my partner were extremely disappointed with our recent trip to Pyrford Golf club. I am an experienced golfer and this was one of the slowest rounds of golf I have ever experienced, we walked in off the course after 7 holes because of the pace of the play. On multiple holes there were 3 groups on the tee box.
On a positive I felt the ambience and atmosphere at the club was good but the pace of play needs to seriously be looked at.
A Damaged beauty
This was a lovely course last year, but there is so much work going on here to alter lakes or add bunkers that at times its like playing on a building site. Clearly they took on too much work during lockdown and were unable to complete it. There is barely a hole that has not been scared in some way.
Having said all that the work aside it is still a lovely days golf with lots of good momorable and challenging holes with excellent greens.
Needs a lot of work
Played this weekend and joined the first with multiple groups already backed up. Made for a super slow round with 10 minute waits on each tee. The group in front of us had decided they wanted to play off the whites which the Marshall allowed and obviously only added to the delays.
The course is undergoing substantial maintenance and landscaping. We got an email the day before playing saying that 95% of the bunkers are GUR so to take a drop if you end up in one. The reality was that almost every hole had large areas without any grass so didn't make for the most picturesque round and looked half finished.
The course is very tight leading to a lot of balls and golfers coming across holes and even balls coming on to greens from other holes.
I imagine when work is done in a year or two it will look great but I would not return for the current price and think you need to play early to beat the queues.
Best greens this year
Nkt played here before and was happy that i gpt off early at 6.04. I llay off 8 and wantes to test myswlf off the white tees and it was a test. My only criticism was that the diatance markers were not clear. But hknestly, a greaat course and the best greens i have seen for a long time. Well worth the money. The birdsong and frog song also made for a wildlife exploration too.
The extensive changes being made to the course are far from complete. Even if they are finished in the next 2 months I suspect the sward will not recover until the autumn. The changes underway are interesting to see and have already improved Pyrford's playability. The course is still fun to play but there are many more bare patches than usual as a result of building equipment ingress. I look forward to playing here next year when the changes should have bedded in.
Must play a round
Beautifully designed, gorgeous to look at, wonderful to play and the friendliest people. If you haven’t played a round at Pyrford you simply must... NOW!!!!
There's a lot of water on this course, but generally avoidable. What it does is make you think about your shot selection. They obviously put a lot of work into maintaining this course and the greens were superb. A thoroughly enjoyable first visit. I will be back.
Lovely course but too slow
Title says it all. Nice course, with interesting water features and well kept greens etc but it took us 3.5 hours to finish 12 holes and ended up walking off. Would advise anyone to go early or avoid Sundays
Slow Sunday Round
Course has quite a confusing layout and very tricky for first timers. Very slow play, I can only assume because of all of the non-members hacking it round and getting lost.
Good points: greens are great, really really lovely. Course was also interesting and lots of fun if you can hit a ball well.
A Real Test but very slow
First time but really enjoyed the course as it made you think and driver was only an option on a few holes. Unfortunately fully booked and some very slow play, including the group in front, who while mature golfers lacked an understanding of ready golf and basic etiquette. Will definitely play again.
Great technical course
This golf course is short but challenging. Every hole has unique features that make the course really entertaining and technical. A lot of opportunities for risk/reward play. Many lakes and creeks as well as some heavy grass to deal with and avoid. The greens are impecable. Superbly maintained. Very fast greens.
Great layout, really interesting
What a fun course, lots to think about and really great design. Greens are a good size, a little fluffy when we played in the evening but run true. Really enjoyed the course,looks great, with a little more TLC on bunkers it's going to look stunning. A great challange to any golfer, I recommend you have a try.
Thoroughly enjoyed the course. Offers s nice challenge. Played the last 2 holes in the dark but great value for money at £20 each
Booked a fairly late tee off as a 2 ball, pro shop said we could probably squeeze in 18 if lucky. Unfortunately we finished only 9 holes in the dark, and that was teeing off the back 9 which is very short. Ridiculous groups ahead playing slowly as fours and the 1-ball behind was using the round as a teaching lesson throughout and wouldn’t allow playing thorough. No one monitoring. 2:45 for 9 holes on a very short course, sure it was only about £25 or so but that’s poor value for 9 holes and wasn’t worth the effort of getting there.
Embarrassingly poor condition
First hole was an embarrassment to the course. The rest of the course was tired and looked poorly maintained. Won’t be back.
