Bunkers bunkers bunkers

Played here end of April, lovely day with pals. Greens not great and need more care from the greens keepers. There are far to many fairway bunkers in poor condition. One par 5 must have a dozen bunkers which are huge. Pot luck if you miss one from the tee box. Some interesting holes and a stiff test having not played for 9 months due to Covid. Still a good day out but fairway bunkers ruin a fairly decent course

Good value course

Great course for the money until a single lady member decided to play behind us on 13 which was very distracting as she was hitting her ball up to us at times. We walked in at 16.

Great value but rough around the edges

Woolston is great value and a fair test. The fairways and greens are good but not great. We dropped out of the bunkers as they seemed to have forgotten to add sand LOL. Tony and the team are always great, thanks chaps.

Good condition course but very slow round

Pretty forgiving course with generous fairways, moderate difficulty. First day after lockdown meant that course was crazy busy, two very slow four balls together meant everyone was backed up behind. Course in reasonable condition, a little muddy in places and greens were a little bumpy.

Sorry no photos to backup, I don't take phone on the course. First off the pro was very unfriendly (Golfnow) more trouble than it's worth. The greens were excellent condition. The bunkers were like swimming pools The fairways were very very heavy going balls plugging on near enough every shot.
This is/was a lovely course when it's dry and sunny......it can not cope with the WET stuff. Shame

ENJOYABLE TO PLAY

What enjoyment we had as a three ball and we really found this a good course to play.
There were a few temporary tee's , but this was due to ground unde4 repair.

The weather conditions weren't the best, however this didn't dampen our spirits and we'd defo recommend giving this course a try
The greens where very good , but a number of bunkera had water in them.
Pleasant staff .

Nearly but not there yet

I have played the course for many years. When it first opened it was superb. The biggest let down over the years has been the poor quality of the greens. . Sort the greens Woolston Manor would then be a course to recommend.

Standards have slipped

Haven’t played this course for a year and it has been let down by poor course management. Bunkers are some of the worst I’ve played and as for the greens they are shocking. This course is laid out lovely and has real potential it just needs to be looked after. Very disappointed and will not be going back anytime soon

Horrendous course

What a bad course. Can’t tell what is a fairway and what is the rough. The greens are basically rough. Impossible to put on as they just bounce and bobble the whole way. There is thick grass covering some of the holes. Staff unfriendly. There are so many courses in the local area, all which are better so I would try some of those.

Awful Greens spoil a decent trek

The layout of the course is decent. Some nice holes but greens were worst I've played in many years. Bumpy and bear , unloved and uncared for. With time and money this course could be pretty decent. The staff are great and friendly. The pace of play was very very slow for the first nine holes until we got let through. Not sure I'd play again unless a lot of work was done on those greens. Its a shame.
