Round at Rothbury

A great round of golf set in most scenic setting for a round of golf. Friendly staff on arrival. Didn't get held up at all.

Lovely Surroundings

First time played Rothbury and the course is a nicely setup parklands course set in lovely surroundings. The only negatives were the greens on the front nine and the bunkers were out of play which is surprising considering the course reopened on Monday from a three month closure. However I would play the course again in the summer.

Cheap and cheerful

Good value for money, some nice holes but beware of flaring golf balls due to course layout! Good greens and friendly members.

First time

Played this for first time and found the course to be a good layout. Would like to see more trees planted to mark the fairways and suck up surface water. Some matting needed in places on the mucky hills. Winter greens and tee boxes but enjoyed the day and scenery is great. Can't comment on staff as clubhouse shut due to covid. Will return again soon

Rothbury flooded!

Unfortunately our round was cancelled due to flooding - the club gave advance notice via their web-site and text message service so no time was wasted travelling. However, I have rated the course based upon recent past experience - the front 9 are a bit hilly and tricky in places - overall the course is a pleasure to play and is reasonably priced. The only difficulty is pace of play which is sometimes slow due to the popularity of the course with locals and visitors. Also some investment would probably benefit the club over the medium to long term - especially installation of some effective drainage to turn the course into a more playable venue during the winter months.

Check before booking

Nice course, however when I turned up I was informed the front 9 were closed due to water and to just play the back 9 twice. I ended up playing with a couple of members who said this was a fairly regular thing. So ring before booking. The back 9 were nice however!

First visit

Lovely friendly welcome from a lady who kindly informed us that the course was quiet and if we were ready we could tee off earlier. Lovely views. Weather damaged small areas but what do you expect from the middle of October. Will definitely return

Excellent

First time I visited this course and will certainly be visiting again. The staff were friendly and helpful. The course was well maintained despite the heavy rain fall.

If it were a little closer to home, I'd become a member.
