When it’s finished…

No club shop, paid online could of just turned up and paid for free, which currently would be a fair price. Fairways not cut properly and ones that are have grass cuttings left on them. Greens are brown and covered in rabbit droppings, bunkers not been touched since the 2nd world war. No signage so wandering around aimlessly looking for next hole. If you miss the fairest by 2 foot your doomed ad grass is thick and covered in grass cuttings. This course could be amazing as the layout is superb, but it’s dreadful right now.

This course could and should be a lot better, the fairways are a bit long and the rough is really long

Won't be going back there

Don't worry you'll have loads of time to find your ball in the rough that hasn't been cut for a year because of the 4 ball in front refusing to let you play through. Typical locals course, place is falling apart and people stare like you've just slapped their nan. No where near worth £20 a round until they cut the grass, even just a little bit.

The 18 hole is insane, dont hit it long whatever you do, you'll get sued for damages for sue.

Looks abandoned

Booked through tee off times as have previously played at Richmond park and was a great course.
Turned up with no cars in the car parks and everywhere shut up, no place available for scorecards, we managed to score on phones.
Arrived at the first tee and noticed the rough was incredibly thick and the fairways did not look like they had been cut for sometime.
The greens had virtually turned into moss, hadn’t been well looked after at all.
Overall the course was in poor condition and myself and playing partners did not fee we got value for money playing here.

CUT THE ROUGH

I believe the green keepers have watched Bryson DeChambeau in the us open and thought that Richmond park is a championship course. It’s not. By any stretch. Never spent so long looking for balls which are 1 foot off the fairway. The bunkers have got less sand in them than Antarctica. The greens are made of moss which makes them impossible to pitch onto however very slow to putt on. Shame. This course used to be really nice. Have heard that they are trying to sell so doing minimal work on the course. And you can tell.

A lot of potential

This course has some excellent and challenging holes but is in need of some TLC. Bunkers were all GUR, the rough was extremely long and most balls that ended up there were unfound. Greens looked a strange colour but played fairly well. We teed off after 12 noon so paid £18 each - would not pay the £28 before 12 noon price.

Potential but lacking TLC

Course has good holes which provide a good challenge however the course was let down by the length of the fairway and rough. A lot of time spent looking for balls that were in the ‘fairway’ or marginally off it.
Greens were very odd too in colour but played ok.
Could be a cracking course if the fairways were kept in better nick.

Casual round

The course was awful, greens were terrible, the fairways were like you were in the rough. On every hole we had to look for our ball even if we hit fairways because the grass was so long and with the mud on the ball it was just impossible to find it

A shame

The course was saturated, standing water on muddy fairways where good shots took some finding. The greens were in poor repair.
The course should really have been closed.

Very Poor Fairways

As a beginner, I found the fairways on the course dreadful.
Also disappointed that on GolfNow app I was forced to pay £28 due to availability.
When I got there , there was no one on the course??

The owner was a great guy, but he needs to invest in a lawnmower!!!!

Avoid if you like golf

The course is in a dreadful condition. There is more weeds than grass and there is little change between the fairway and rough. The bunkers are all out of action with 4ft weeds growing from them. No signage around the course difficult to navigate.

To top it off golf now's the price of £25 was high than what the cost is if you just turn up. I was told they hadn't updated their times but there was nothing they could do.

You would be better of chipping in your back garden for a couple of hours

A lot of potential

Greens were soft and very slow, often having lots of lumpy mud all over them making putting and chipping difficult. Had to clear a line from ball to hole on every green.

Bunkers were all full of grass and did not look like they should be in use. I hit into one fairway bunker with a GUR sign, however I didn’t see any others.

Rough was long and overall messy. Very difficult to find the ball if hit into the rough. I lost 2 balls alone from simply hitting into the rough with a clear line in the shot.

Tees have a number of divots, which is too be expected. In quite OK condition considering the amount of people playing this summer.

Fairways were mostly short and easy to hit from.

Overall, it was a nice parkland course to play but the condition of the greens and rough made the course a frustrating one to play. Were the issues to be fixed by the green keepers, this could be a lovely course to play.

Needs some love

Good course in need of some TLC. The greens need some work as very patchy and weedy.
The bunkers had more things growing in them than there was sand! I’m not sure if the rakes in them were for a vegetable plot!
The course layout and club are lovely so as someone whom has played here many times before I was very disappointed in the up keep of the course.

Not recommended.

At one time this might have been a decent course but it is currently quite jaded. It would need some serious tic to bring it up to scratch. It’s a shame because, properly taken care of, it could be a great course. In its current state it is overpriced.

Picturesque but challenging

Played Richmond Park for the first time today after booking through GolfNow. We were greeted with a very friendly welcome from staff and instructed how to find the first tee which is located across the road by the driving range. Myself being a 20 handicap and my playing partner off 27 we found this course very challenging. Tight fairways need very accurate tee shots but if you can manage that a decent score is achievable. We found the tee boxes were slightly long for our liking, all bunkers were GUR (probably a good thing). The greens played pretty true. A little more signage would be good to direct you to the next tee box etc. We found the back 9 considerably easier and more enjoyable. Overall good but tough course. Will go back tho

Disappointing

Arrived early in the hope of hitting a few balls before playing. Pro shop closed with a sign stating to report to the bar. Everywhere was closed. Went down to driving range in the hope of seeing someone to check in but no one was there. So we played earlier as we had paid. Thankfully we were following a 3 ball round so we knew where to go as signs to next tees were limited. Course conditions weren’t great with the fairways clearly not been cut for a while and greens were poor. Bunkers were shocking and still had rakes in. I know we didn’t pay the most for the round but was expecting a little more. If maintained could be a lovely challenging course.

Does what it says on the tin

The course is in need of some TLC , but paying £13 for a twilight round is good value , although I'm not sure I would want to pay full price in the morning .
The original half of the course , the second half is challenging and you have to place your irons carefully , so make a refreshing change from the battle of the drivers .
