Course was in very good condition and speed of play was very good too. Club members were very friendly and courteous as were the staff. We completed an unhurried round in 3 hours 20 minutes and if we had wanted to we could have played faster. We were happy to sit behind a four ball for the first nine holes even though they offered us through on two occasions.. Greens were true and even though it rained early in the round it helped the greens to be more receptive. Would recommend the course

To find out on arrival that they operate a 7 mins between tee times. Pressure already.

Fairways on a whole good condition, well cut etc.

Most of the greens were in shocking condition. Divots and marks littered most of them, not easy putting. I would compare the greens to a council golf course.

Some of the locals were quite rude, we were a two ball and we had a two ball in front then a four in front. Four ball took a long time and were playing at a very slow pace, however didn’t let the quicker two balls play threw. Over four hours for a round, not impressed.

Will play somewhere else next time.

We enjoyed our earlier visit so much we came back later the same week!

The conditions were cooler with a light breeze but the course was still in good conditions with putting a pleasure.

We took the chance to visit the bar before heading home. The beer was on the pricey side but the food was very reasonably priced. The atmosphere was relaxed and airy with pleasant view out to the course and the gardens.

The best money spent recently!

We have had a long spell of really hot weather!!

The grass was burned on fairways as expected - other courses are having the same problems.

The greens were better than some we have played recently - true rolls on green grass with few bare areas. The grass was slightly longer than normal which made putts slow but that was part of the challenge. One of my friends was new to the course and wants to come back soon. I thinks that is a good idea!! We didn't use the clubhouse but it looked very inviting - next time!

We played on a day where excuses were thin on the ground, but it was hot. As newbies we found the course great for driving and fair, but staying on the fairways was paramount. The course is very flat and the self service 9th hole hut and refreshments were very welcome with £1.00 coffee /tea machine and toilet replenishing water facility. We looked in the modern clubhouse and prices were reasonable but we didn't have time to avail ourselves. We will play here again soon.

Although the greens were a bit slow and grainy they were true and in good condition. Tee boxes in good positions and course playing it's full distance. Bad shots punished but no silly long rough. Fantastic value and the weather and facilities were excellent.

I had a good day at Scarthingwell, played as part of a 3 ball on Sunday afternoon, the course was not busy and the weather perfect for golf.

I had played the course just once before and found it not very long but enough to challenge the wayward drive, out of bounds etc.

Thought the greens were fair, consistent in the main, just one green looked in need of some care but the rest more than adequate.

Will certainly plan to play again this summer
