why stop at 18?
Recently played the Eagle Course at Branston, which claimed to be 18 holes on the grounds that a few of the 9 greens had two tees. Why not build four tees and call it 36 holes? With the longest hole around 280 yards, it could barely be called a golf course! Signposting to the 1st hole is non-existant, and on the course itself there are several posts designed to indicate the next hole, simply lying on the ground. Neither of the last two holes had second tees, and it felt like the designer had truly lost heart and given up the pretense that it was anything but a semi-decent 9 hole pitch-and-put course. Branston's facilities are fine but just stick to the Championship Course if you want to play golf.
This is a nice course to play if you are local. However, it is not value for money at all. The 9 hole costs between 10 pounds and 18 pounds. There are 18 holes around the area that charge less than branston charge for 9 holes.
Thought had booked onto the 18 hole championship course but apparently not! So played the 9 hole course which wasn’t bad if you’d played before because as a first timer we had no idea where we was going from hole to hole as not very clear at all where you have to go!
9 hole Eagle course
Course was in great condition and it had a nice challenging experience even though the 9 hole course is on the short side it was a great afternoon of golf.
Not an 18 hole
This course is advertised as an 18 hole golf course it’s not it’s two eight holes with different tees, and there are no par 5 and there are as many par 3 as there is par fours , apart from that the course is actually nice with great contoured greens , the staff was not helpful at all they assumed that we new the layout and they had us down for 1420 tee even though I had conformation for 1400 , the 18 hole is a separate course only available for members at the moment.
Didn't bother turning up
This course it actually 2 loops of 9 measuring a little over 3000yds.
This is not made clear on tee off times, and having found out after booking decided not to play.
Should be made clearer.
Very Pleasant Course
Not a difficult course, but great value for money and really enjoyable course to play. Only opened today after plenty of rain and was still in pretty good shape which is a testament to the staff. Will definitely be playing again, hopefully in good weather when I can play the course at it’s full potential
Course in good condition for time of year. Greens running true with a little bobble now and again. Some long par 4s making it tough to hit the greens with two good shots.
It's a good practise walk with very average greens and bunkers. You pay for what you get in this world. It's OK for a beginner and a walk around but don't expect much quสlity for this kind of price,
