The course has been shortened which makes it easier to play. Once the new tees and greens are open then it should be an improvement. But is an attractive course and generally in good condition

Played here a couple of years ago but now it’s all changed. You can see the work they are trying to do and it could be a good course.

However in its present guise this course is a complete mish mash and not that enjoyable. The lack of any par 5’s take something away from the course. No hole number markers or easily visual yardage markers make it difficult to follows. Lack of bins and ball cleaners needs to be addressed.

All in all there are a lot better local courses to play for the same if not less money.

All of the greens are in v. good condition even the temporary one's, fairways are recovering v. well from the drought.

Fast pace of play throughout , only one delay when I caught up with a slow moving fourball on the 18th fairway and green. Still round in 2 hours 40 minutes.

I played well so that also helps.

****DO NOT PLAY THIS COURSE UNLESS IT IS SO CHEAP YOU CANT REFUSE*****

They are developing the surrounding area and have chopped the course to what I can only describe as a joke. The front 9 is now only around 2500yds. The back 9 is slightly better but is still ruined.

This was a good course. It's not now.

Agree, it used to be wonderful course with long and testing par 5's and now it's a course for the hotel guests

As I’ve played here many times in the past,why oh why they’ve shortened it is beyond me, We enjoyed the long challenging par 5’s .the original first hole was a decent start...now a par 3?split into a following par 4.

Being local it ‘was’ ideal for us to nip for a game,but me thinks we won’t be visiting as much as we use too.

Though it’s not the clubs/owners fault that a nice hotel/spar/golf centre is surrounded be young idiot kids riding motorcycles(parents should be proud) who I know have damaged the course,resulting with a lot of security fencing having to be installed.

And this may be the whole reason to the course redesign,

1st time played since the new layout. For some reason we started on the 9 th hole. They’ve shortened the course by a great deal. No par 5’s and too many par 3’s

I won’t be going back.

The website states this is an "18 hole championship course par 72", but when we arrived the scorecard was for par 66. Four or five holes had 'greens' which were in the middle of fairways. The course had very few yardage markers and I'd say that a lot of the yardages were incorrect. The holes that did have proper greens were generally good, and the course is set in lovely grounds which could be developed to become a fantastic course, but we left feeling a bit let down by the descriptions on Owston Hall's website

The course is being altered and upgraded at the moment so there are at least 3 temp. greens but for the price there are no complaints. We will try to go again soon. We had a few heavy showers during the round but mostly sunny. It is well worth a visit for the money but maybe not if paying full price just because of the temp. greens.

Can't understand why there are bad reviews on the internet, yes the course is under reconstruction and yes there are some temporary greens and yes the course layout is somewhat confusing, however, the staff could not have been friendlier, the course when we played it was in fantastic condition (yes even the temporary greens) and for only £20 for 4 players absolutely great value for money! Have played courses charging £30 per player that were not as good as this one.

We will be back to Owston Hall as soon as we can!!

Had a great time with the 3 lovely guys I was linked up with. The few 'average' comments I made were because the course was undergoing some considerable upgrading but it did not spoil the day.

Played here before and always enjoyed it. Got a good deal on teeofftimes and to be fair was well happy with the price. But was very disappointed that nobody had told us Evan before going out they had knocked 1000 yards off the course. A couple of the long holes had been shortened to make par 3s and these were temperary greens(at least I hope they were) and fencing had been put across the far end of the course and work was still very much in progress. When we asked at the end of the game we were told it was because of vandalism. Will play there in the future to see the changes but feel it's future may not be good.
