Reason for only 3 stars.
Except for the hollow-tired greens the course was in very good condition.
Great Course and Super People
I played this course with my two sons last weekend, despite some disappointment when I arrived to see that it was not the course I played years ago within the confines of the race track - I was open minded and after a superb breakfast and some excellent service by everyone in the clubhouse, from Pro Shop to Bar Staff we went out and played 18 holes and really enjoyed the course and the day in general. I would have no hesitation at all in recommending others to play here in the future. Well done to all concerned on the day, even the Captain spoke to us, and the only slight downside was the speed of play of some of the people on the course, but, we cannot legislate for those that are always waiting on shots when obviously incapable of reaching the group in front of them!!
A good option for an away round
Generally a great course, well cared for, nicely presented, good pace of play and a fair challenge.
Only criticism is 14, 15, 16 a bit similar and quite tightly packed.
Really enjoyed playing there for first time.
3 stars for condition but not their fault. Very very dry conditions, so not really their fault.
Very aggressive members
Nice course: the greens and tee boxes are in good nick. The clubhouse is great for a beer after the round and the pro shop is stocked with everything you’d need.
Massive downside were the members.. super aggressive on numerous occasions. Demanding to know how much my friend and I paid for our round, and laughing about how they pay £2k per year for membership and were better than us. Really confrontational and unwelcoming. No shouts when their stray shots came close to landing on us.. we were also shouted and sworn at by a separate group for no apparent reason! Slow play by very arrogant members.
WOULD AVOID. I won’t be booking on again.
Royal Ascot Golf Club
The friendliest course around. Shame about the greens. Poor for this time of year.
Pleasant course to play
The greens were not in great conditions at the moment - they seemed to have been recovering from punching. Otherwise a pleasant course, relatively flat and wide fairways. Lot of airplanes as close to heathrow
Great day out
Nice people, members very friendly.. look forward to come again, and better my score.. thanks to all the staff..
Tee to green ok. Greens shocking
I know it is early season but the greens resembled more what a farmer would prepare. Shame because as a course it is an early season joy being wide and a bit forgiving. Staff were really friendly
Lots of OB / greens were recently tined
Reasonably picturesque course but IMHO marred by way too much OB, due to the amount of ‘protected environment’ areas.
Am sure the greens could be decent but they’d been tined a few weeks previously so it wasn’t much fun to putt on a bobbly surface.
Great Layout, Friendly Staff
Great layout, friendly staff only problem was the greens were terrible as it had been heavily spiked and sanded, so you had no chance once on the green. But its that time of the year and I’m sure they will be excellent in the summer months.
Course that stands up to Winter Golf conditions
Lovely course, despite cold conditions the greens defend this course to the death. It’s a lovely layout, fairways in great condition, the pace of the greens really make it challenging but an overall highly enjoyable experience!
Great course for time of year
Played Royal Ascot last week (14thvJan) and the course has held well under the weather, great groundsman ship and green keeping, frost made the greens run fast during the morning but slow in the afternoon which madd you think more.
Rough. And Fairway both well maintained and the geese made an. Extra hazard for fun.
Club house friendly, good selection of ales and wines, great location.
First time I played here, excellent course, facilities and staff. The fairways have suffered from lack of rain which is clearly not the club’s fault, greens were in superb condition despite this, members and staff very friendly. I’ll definitely come back!
