Probably wouldn't play here again

Course was in good condition, the view from the par 3 sixth hole was incredible

However, what let this down was the course layout or lack of signs to help you maneuver throughout the course. Walking round like a headless chicken trying to find the next hole took a lot of the enjoyment out of what could have been a really enjoying round of golf

Probably wouldn't play here again

Tilsworth Golf Course

All in all a nicely kept course with a beginner feel to it. Greens were a little ropey but fairways were nice and short. Some testing holes up & downhill. Not much room for error on most holes. Would visit again as a beginner.

Poor course

The course was short but wasn’t that score-able because the greens were too firm and too small on most of the holes. They were like trying to land on concrete and not well thought out in terms of what clubs you should be approaching the green with. Unless you landed way short you couldn’t get it to stick. The layout is also odd with blind shots in to greens and off the tee and tee boxes right next to greens. There’s some potential there with some nice views and a couple of decent holes but not good value for money at the moment.

Extremely tight course, greens in very poor condition.

You can tell the course used to be a 9 hole, converted into a 18. Yon the front 9 you have 3 fairways stacked up on top of each other, very no protection from incoming balls. The greens were in terrible condition. Patchy grass, with some patched no grass at all, just mud.
Course isn't laid out very well, lack of signage for where to play the next hole.

Shocking layout

You can’t see the pins from the tee boxes, so are playing blind for so many of the holes. Fairways okay but most of the greens pretty poor. Layout terrible meaning you shoot randomly down random fairways sometimes, without having a clue where the pins are, and fair walks between holes means slow pace of play too.

Greens not great condition but otherwise fine

Its a nice layout, perhaps a little dicey with tee boxes so close to greens with no protection. The greens are small which works well as a challenge for a fairly open course. Unfortunately the greens werent in good condition but the rest of the course is. Very busy as only opened again that week and it was bank holiday.

Lovely course, weird layout

Very nice course, interesting holes and lovely scenery! Make sure you pick up a score card, even with that it can be difficult to find the next tee, you sometimes have to walk 100-150 yards to it and it's not very obvious.

AVOID AT ALL COST - nasty place and nasty people

A truly shocking experience. Waterlogged course and was told it was a little muddy! It was nothing short of a bog pit. Shoes would completely sink down to cover them in a majority of the course fairways and between holes. Greens were in bad conditions and nearly hit by golf balls twice. Saw 2 lots of 6 balls on the course holding up play. Then when we complained were told that there is no refund and ‘we said it was muddy’. Extremely rude people and a truly shocking place. Walked off after 9. AVIOID!

Course condition

The course was in an appalling condition, unfortunately it was a very foggy day, visibility was reduced to less than 50yards.

The golf course was very mushy, it was totally unplayable, the greens and bunkers fairways were waterlogged..

In my opinion, the course should’ve been shot down. I only manage to play 2 hole and discontinued the game.

Avoid at all costs

Cold but beautiful sunny day for time of year. (December) course should not have opened after second lockdown. After two heavy rain days this course was unplayable, waterlogged, very muddy, greens like a ploughed field. Need a hard hat in case of getting hit in middle of fairway from tees that are scattered around and very hard to find. Not enjoyable at all walked of after four holes.

Condition of this course was the worst i have ever played on or seen

This course was unplayable, fairways were waterlogged, greens had tyre tracks running through them. We walked off after 3 holes and asked for refund which was refused. Would rather not play golf than visit this course again

Not great

I played well here... but the course was in awful condition!

60%+ was ankle high mud! And the greens were hollow-tined far too late in the year!

Absolute shocker.

Good value.

With so much rain the course was very wet. That’s expected. Lots of worms and mud on the greens as a result of the rain too. Tee boxes were a bit muddy and sometimes hard to find a suitable spot to tee up.

The course is confusing. I use Hole19 so was relying heavily on that to direct us around. Some blind tee shots have ‘links’ style aiming posts but some dont. The next time we play there I think we will be fine.

There are some really interesting holes, albeit some short par 4s. Definitely enough to keep you interested. Playing a course first time I think you do tend to play the yardages first and that got me into trouble a fair bit. Next time out I’d be a lot more reserved off the tee And leave driver for the handful of times you really need it.

Bunkers unplayable (mixture of poor sand and rain).
Greens ok. (Hard to be too critical given the weather)
Fairways sometimes hard to define but overall ok.
Tee boxes wet and sometimes squelchy under foot.

Overall I would rate this course well. Value for money is brilliant. We paid £11 on a ‘Hot deal’ and had very low expectations going in. Pleasantly surprised and will definitely return once (if) the weather drys up.

Avoid

Got given broken buggy’s
Over changed £5 each on our four ball
Due to lack of signage, easily got lost between tees
Putting greens are like putting on a cobbled street, such bad maintenance
Sand in the bunkers seemed like they were from Travis Perkins builders sand
If you want to get lost and have a awful experience then this is the course for you.
If your looking for a decent round of golf, please go anywhere but here.

Very enjoyable

The state of the course was very good. The only criticism is that the layout was confusing - I have never used the scorecard as a map before.
