This course is a fantastic bang for your buck, easily my favorite course right now.

Overall conditions and the clubhouse are amazing.

My only slight criticism would be the “player assistants” (Rangers?), they just drive around staring at you looking miserable. They only detract from the experience and do nothing but slow down pace of play.

"Weekend play very slow"

Flamborough is a great course. During the week pace seems good. Weekend golf here can be very slow and they seem to overbook or book tee times too tightly. 15 holes played in 4.5 hours then had to leave. Starter inserted a foursome of hackers in front of us on the turn so we basically had to play the same nine over. Even then it would have been a 5 or 5.5 hr round. Bring your patience and tolerance if you want to play here on the weekend.

As always, this course provides great value for the money. We played Hills/Woods and despite the heavy wind, there was minimal fallout from trees. The greens were consistent, but on the soft side. The range was closed because a wedding was scheduled for that afternoon, but the practice green is convenient and well taken care of. The pace of play was great considering we had a novice golfer in our group and the group in front of us was having a hard time with the windy conditions. After 9 holes, it was windy enough we could barely hear eachother on the tee block, but decided to continue. After 12 holes, they called everyone off because some trees had fallen on the fairways. We were all credited for 9 holes with a cart, which was a nice gesture. The entire staff from pro-shop, Starter, Marshall and cart girls were all very pleasant. We'll be back again!

Have played here several times but have not been here in a couple of years.

I always enjoy the layout and the conditions are always good.

The course was extremely busy today and I was expecting a very long day, but it moved extremely well, and we finished in just under 4 hours.

Eight of us enjoyed a fine morning of golf at Flamborough Hills. The course was in great shape. Pace was perfect. We were done in four hours 15 minutes. The staff in the lounge and pro shop were very attentive. We played Hills and Woods. We look forward to playing the course again.

I don't know why I had never played here before. Perhaps because from the road, it looks like a private club.

A very nice clubhouse and well laid out. You enter the pro shop from the parking lot!

There are 27 holes with no houses.Very scenic and a couple of tricky shots required. Not too much water or sand to spoil your day and lots of trees to avoid.

I don't know if it was because the weather was do hot or because it was the long weekend but we teed off at noon and were done by 3. We even hot a replay in on a Saturday.

Every staff member we encountered was very friendly. I look forward to my next round here.
