Nice tree-lined 9 hole course.
This course is a little short but is great for beginners as the greens are quite big for a small course. The greens were in excellent condition and very well maintained for the time of year.
There are a few water hazards on some holes, just in front of the 1st tee and to the right of the 4th are two that spring to mind with the ditch on the 3rd also coming into play, the wind does become a factor at times. On hole 7, 166 yards, we were reaching the green with a 9 iron!
Don’t come here expecting a supreme conditioned course, Northolt is a good place to come and practice but that is about it.
The fairways are non existent and the tee areas could do with smartening up, but we did play during the winter so perhaps they get better in the summer. You would think looking at this course putting would be a lottery as well, to our surprise the greens were in good condition and certainly rolled well, the green keeper is doing a good job.
One person we met commented that the owner was a miserable b*****d but he and the members we met on the day made us feel very welcome. If you have just taken up golf and need a local place to practice this would be the ideal choice, but be warned we were told it gets very busy on the weekends.
