From the off the pro in the shop was really friendly and welcoming. He explained the facilities and course layout and was very sociable.(the free push trolleys was a nice touch also)

We did get stuck behind a 2 ball for the first few holes but it didn't matter the views are absolutely stunning in some areas and breathtaking in others.

Now down to the course as my header explained "I would play there again tomorrow"

The tees were in great condition and the fairways and greens immaculate. The course layout was a testing with blind holes and greens (which was a bit tricky on first time playing) but didn't detract from the enjoyment of the course.

An absolute must if you want to play a top notch course at an affordable price.

Played course a few times. As usual the course was in excellent condition but the round was spoilt by being behind two sociaties. Four and three quarter hours for a game of golf is unacceptable.

Waterton Park is a lovely course set in beautiful surroundings, being the land originally belonging to Waterton Hall , which incidentally is surrounded by a lake. The edge of the lake comes in to play occasionally , but the overall course is one of undulating parkland . It is quite a long course so I would recommend a buggy so long as you can go on the grass and not just stick to the pathways. There are some testing holes , the fairways are well mown and the greens just starting to come into their own, if a little slow at the moment. There are ponds and gulleys, hidden greens and dog legs - all in all a good test of golf and an enjoyable course to play.

A nice course, some interesting holes, can be challenging in places. The course layout is very good, some very steep hills in places so if you struggle walking get a buggy.

Really enjoyed the round, the course was in very good condition and the greens were great.

The only downside was the pace of play stuck behind a four ball that were at snail pace, and completely oblivious to our two ball, we had to ask eventually if we could play through, which they let us albeit not very happily!!

But I would definatley play the course again and a nice bacon sandwich at the halfway house!

With the sun finally arriving in earnest I booked a round at Waterton Park at a decent rate.

The course (tees, fairways and greens) were in fantastic shape for so early in the season. Pace of play was excellent and a nice halfway house all made for a great day.

Highly recommended and I will definitely return.
