Nice being out in the Sunshine

Course was in good nick considering the time of year. but it was very windy which you had to allow for.
Some of the Tee boxes were a bit rough, but it was nice to be out in the sunshine in November.

Generous fairways

A well maintained golf course with generous fairways. The layout is a bit confusing and signage needs improvement.

Disappointed

Played here yesterday and obviously they have had some trouble, course was in terrible condition. After reading some reviews we were looking forward to it. Unfortunately we left very disappointed

Poorly maintained

Played with a society 11th September. After seeing poor reviews recently made on Google we got in touch with the club to find out the condition we were assured that while it was looking a bit scruffy the greens were rolling well etc. just browned.

This was definitely not the case. I'm in no way a golf snob and can usually enjoy any course I play, but this was generally a tired, run down, unlooked after course. Greens were in terrible condition and some of the tee boxes were awful.

It's a real shame as I'm sure under the right management it could be quite nice. However as it stands one of the worst courses I've ever played.

Serious issue with the greens

To start with I have played Rye Hill many times in the past and normally enjoy the course. However there is a serious problem with the greens , they were very poor. Brown, patchy , looked as though they were starved of water all summer.

Disappointing

I’ve played Rye hill before and was excited to be returning however I must say I wasn’t as happy this time as last. First of all the tee boxes were pretty shabby( not the end of the world) secondly the fairways were patchy and poorly cut, again I could see past that but the greens were most disappointing, worm holes everywhere made it practically impossible to hit a putt without having to move 10 mounds of mud from the worms 1st. I’d suggest sending someone out early and scraping these off the greens. Pace of play was excellent because it was pretty quiet. Staff were friendly In the bar afterwards.

Mid-week round

Booked a mid-week afternoon round at Rye Hill having played previously (Easter weekend)
The course was in reasonably good condition. A couple of tee boxes need some work, 1 or 2 greens weren't the best and some of the bunkers are in desperate need of sand! On the whole though it was an enjoyable round for the price.
The biggest disappointment was the bar being closed when we finished at 7.00 pm.
Will be returning.

Great layout although the conditions are deteriorating

I have played golf probably 30 or 40 times since March last year and the course was in stunning condition, fast fairways, lovely tee boxes and super refined greens however since around July of this year I noticed the course start to get a bit out of shape. Plenty of old unrepaired divots on the fairways, patchy greens and poor tee boxes.

It's sad to see as previously this was a very well kept course with lovely views but just seems a bit run down of late. Things can turn around as quick as they have gone the other way so let's hope it comes back to a premium championship course.

All in all its a great club but just need sprucing up. By no means a poor course

Nice layout. Maybe needs a little tidying up in/around the bunkers but this may just be down to COVID? Other than that, a really nice course to play. Open enough so the deep rough wasn’t too taxing as once it’s in there, there’s no getting it back
