First time at Whipsnade Park

An enjoyable afternoon of golf. The course is attractively situated, in excellent condition and a very fair test for occasional golfers which we are. Pace of play a little slow at times and some holes are a bit samey. However, I would certainly return.

Nice straightforward course, not overplayed

Selected this course as equidistant between playing partners.
Course was comparatively quiet on a Tuesday afternoon, though plenty of senior members were out on the back 9.
The course winds around mature tree lined fairways but is open enough to allow the odd wayward drive. This keeps pace of play relatively brisk which was to our liking.
A very fair course which was a little wet when we played after a thoroughly wet May.
The clubhouse, in spite of the restrictions is welcoming and well-appointed with well maintained changing facilities
Great value for money

Whipsnade park golf

Great facilities ie open and covered driving ranges, easy access to toilet and changing facilities.
Putting green practice area reflects how the actual greens play which welcome .
On course play was well spaced so that there was no waiting for groups in front and the course is well laid out and with clear mapping of each hole on each tee box and 150 yard markers on all relevant holes.
Will definitely play here again

Thanks

Wide fairways, hard greens

Nice course, most longer holes with doglegs, ground hard after little rain so difficult to keep approach shots on the green. Good challenging course.

Hidden gem

Didn't know what to expect from this course, but wanted to try somewhere new.
It was a little difficult to find initially due my cars satnav but I got there eventually.
I was very impressed at both the location and quality of the layout and really enjoyed my round. This is a hidden gem of a course. Staff were friendly and helpful and the course was in good condition, especially the greens.
I'll look forward to playing there again.

Nice Course

I liked the course a lot, challenging and long but you are rewarded for playing each hole strategically. Course was in great condition, lovely putting green behind the first hole. Great views on the first hole’s fairway. Only negative is the course is slightly ‘samey’. No real standout hole but for £20 I can’t complain.

used to be a golf club with friendly staff

last opportunity to play a round before goverment shuts down golf courses. we've, me and my golf partner, were lucky enough to manage to book a tee time in Whipsnade park golf club. took a half day off at work and we turned up in club for 14:00 tee off. in pro shop my partner was told that he can't play in his trainers, very much similar to spikless golf shoes, only if he puts golf shoes on. he was even happy to pay over £100 for new pair of golf shoes but pro shop had only few sizes available. poor atitude from pro shop staff shown despite of us paying for a round in advance. we would accept golf shoes club rule with no comments but would expect some kind of decency and maners when things goes not right way. this experience made me feel a bit bitter especialy when I (used to be a member of Whipsnade Park gc) wanted to show WPGC and its beauty to my golf mate.

Underrated course

Played a lot here over the past 12 months, great layout, testing tee shots, really mature course with some very interesting holes. The greens are generally excellent. Some parts of the course have a tendency to get very wet in the winter months, but the greens hold up better that the rest of the course. Excellent value and a bit of a hidden gem.
