Wet!!!

Overall the course was in decent condition in spite of the rain we have had. My only gripe is the 18th which has needed some serious attention for some time. In wet conditions iit is unplayable,, list a ball after hitting the fairway, absolute quagmire approaching the Green.
Spend some money on drainage, it ain’t gonna improve!!!

Great value for money

A return visit to Stableford Abbotts, my first visit was a year or two ago. This time I played with my son. The staff are very friendly and welcoming.
I like the course, it's laid out well with a number of dog legs and water hazards but isn't intimidating - which is good! The greens aren't perfect but are very playable.
Stapleford Abbotts is Incredible value for money in my eyes.
I picked a tee time that spanned lunchtime on a Friday, we flew round with no other players in front, or behind, so pace of play was great! But we could see some congestion 5 or 6 holes ahead, where a couple of 4 balls had run into each other.

Not too difficult!

Nice course, good layout. A bit flat but several ponds in play to jazz it up a bit.
Bunkers need bit of attention, as per most courses, greens need a trim but overall good.

Great course, great value and some very tricky 'risk reward' holes to take on. Love this course.

Poor Condition

I played on Sunday . Never seen the greens so bad. They are the worst greens I’ve played on for several years. Tees not much better.

The pace of play was shocking. 5 hours around there is terrible.

A totally miserable experience and won’t be back for a good whole. Definitely not worth the money.

An expensive course for what it is. Short holes make it tough work.

Good value

Good value but the booking system seems a little adhoc. Tee times were available from 12 to 3pm with very few bookings. When we arrived it was absolutely packed. Took 5 hours for the round. I'm normally round in a buggy in 3hours.

Walk-ins don't get added to the system so no way of knowing how busy the course was. Staff said not busy buy the 4th hole had 4 groups on it at once.

Great Value For Money

Very cheap price to play a full 18 hole golf course. And the course was not in a bad condition at all. Highly recommend if you are looking for a cheap round of golf to play. Only problem with the course was the hole could sometimes feel a little bit repetitive and the greens felt a little bit on the smaller size and quite slow as they felt a little long. But other than those two small things brilliant

Nice course. Leave the driver!

Really enjoy it here. Played it a quite a lot.
What's nice is that you have to think about lots of holes it isn't just driver off the tee. Knowing your club distances to corners of dog legs comes in really handy..plenty of water to lose balls in - 5 penalty strokes for me! Still managed 3 birdies and shot 89. So happy overall.
