This course has potential but needs investment. Greens poor but appreciate lack of rain but other courses in much better condition. You need a buggy or face a hard walk.

Due to the heatwave we have experienced recently I expected the fairways to be scorched and brown which they were. However, I did not expect the greens to be in such appalling condition. They were very dry, patchy, uneven and resembled those that you would find at a very poor seaside pitch and put course. All other courses that I have played during the last few weeks had similar fairways but greens that had been watered and played nearly as true as ever. (If there was a watering problem we should have been advised and given the option of cancellation).
Having played this course, and enjoyed it, on numerous previous occasions the course is looking a bit run down is showing a lack of maintenance around it - many of the ditches which cross the course were overgrown with weeds.
On such a hot day a drink in the clubhouse would have been welcome but despite it only being 2:30 the bar was closed.

In conclusion I feel that, mainly, due to the state of the greens the course was not “fit for purpose” and was poor value for money. I could not recommend it the way it is at present.

On a cold blustery morning, this was a really enjoyable round of golf. We didn’t have to wait at a single hole and we didn’t need to rush as it seemed we had the course to ourselves. The course itself was in very good condition except for layer of leaves... but that would be the same for most golf courses at this time of year.

Really enjoyed playing here today. The club shop is located at the back of the main building. No problems. Course map was available seperate to scorecard.
Nice wide fairways. Unique hilly holes that challenged my chipping and lob shots. Im beginning to enjoy my golf, not yet broke 100 but not far off it! and this test I will take with me onto other courses.
Judging distance to the holes takes getting used to because of the micro flags, but the greens were well kept.
Definitely return one day.
Views of Dudley Castle at one point too. Lovely

First question for you, ever wanted to golf around the malvern hills? look no further. This place is like the Himalayan mountains. as for course layout, id rather drive a moped through mumbai at rush hour. awful, no map of the holes on either scorecard or tee box. The greens are uneven and run slower than the fairways! about as smooth as a marlboro red from the 1960's. the staff are sound, no qualms there. Priced at 22.00 i was disappointed to find the flag sticks looked like they were fashioned from old kitchen mops with a linesman flag stuck on the top. extremely hard to judge distance when the flag is shorter than ronnie corbet, real off putting when attacking the green. the speed of play was slow. took us close to 5 hours to complete 18 holes. wouldn't go back myself, but if you looking for a nock at short notice, crack on. personally id rather light a 20 on fire.
