Zero etiquette from most players

I’ve been fond of this course for multiple decades having previously worked there as a teen, and while things have definitely improved in recent years unfortunately a Saturday morning can be a nightmarish slog.

Today we, a three ball, were stuck behind a four ball who had multiple opportunities to let us play through while looking for balls for way longer than they should’ve been. We remained behind them for getting on for four hours and forty five minutes, and didn’t really enjoy repairing their pitch marks on every other green either.

What we also didn’t enjoy was nearly being killed by a wayward shot from another fairway when that group didn’t shout fore loudly enough for any human standing further away than ten feet to hear.

In the circumstances, and with such a mixed level of playing ability & more importantly understanding regarding etiquette, it’s not somewhere we’re going to rush to play again. That’s a shame because the course itself is in fine condition and it is a great challenge.

The staff in the pro shop were really friendly but stuff like pitch mark repairs, avoiding slow play & actually shouting fore louder than a mouse can squeak really need to be drilled into people before they leave the clubhouse.

Underwhelming course which needs more care

Good course layout and interesting holes with enough challenge. But the quality of the greens was really poor, they were quite dirty and clearly hadn’t been attended recently which made putting a challenge. Fairways weren’t in fantastic condition either. To pay £45 for all of the above felt very over priced too. It’s a shame because the course could be really good if it got the attention it deserves.

Great Course

The only small issue was the fairways grass needed cutting down as the ball had no run.
Apart from that the course is in great condition and would recommend to play here.

hilly course

second time on the course. Staff very welcoming. Slower groups let you play through. Very hilly in places, but greens in good condition.

Like most courses needs a bit of work on fairways but overall good course to play.

Nearly There!

A wonderful looking course but currently in need of much TLC! Tee-boxes were poor, fairways in need of a cut, bunkers unkempt and greens unloved with far too many unrepaired pitch marks.

I am sure that once the hotel has re-opened and there are more visitors the required money will be spent on the course. There are some magnificent holes and views.

Great course

Beautiful setting. Great layout. Challenging, especially in the rough, which in some cases is close to the fairways. At £45 it's about £10 to £15 more than other similar courses we play at but we love the course so don't mind the bit extra

Complete waste of money

Paid £45 for an early tee off - thinking the course must be pretty good for that price - but how wrong I was. The set up of the course is pretty bland, very hilly with not much landscaping so you’re always playing a ball above or below your feet.

The condition was abysmal, couldn’t tell what was fairway and what was rough as weeds and long grass could be found throughout. Greens no good either.

Furthermore, the Pro shop was shut when we arrived, with a note saying it wouldn’t be open, and to just turn up and play. No toilet facilities, no food or drink (on hottest day of the year).

Just a complete shambles. I play a lot of courses, some only £15 a round - and this is the worst by far. Do not play here.

Grass height

The grass even on the fairways stood above the height of the ball. Even good straight shots were impossible to find..

Always challenging and fun

De Vere Selsdon is always a challenging and fun course. Though most holes are pretty open, depending on the time of year, it plays completely differently.
The greens are in decent nick and I’m looking forward to the next round this summer.
