3 reviews of Boston West Golf Club
A newish course situated four miles from Boston at Hubberts Bridge. It is a typical 1990's course with several water hazards and big greens offering the main challenge. Well kept and tidy but lacking the atmosphere that only full maturity can bring. Facilities were OK but clubhouse food was shockingly bad.
Played last weekend with the two sons. Enjoyed it despite the strong wind which made it difficult especially the first 6 holes or so which are most exposed....found the water rather wet although the carp inhabitants provided a good excuse for straying there in the first place... Gave a good test whilst some holes provided birdie opportunities. The eldest lad (aged 14) managed 3 including driving to within 8 feet of the down wind par 4 fourth. Greens and fairways in decent nick although most bunkers were flooded due to cloud burst 2 days prior. Would play again in more favourable conditions next time in the area.
as my home course i have seen just about everything this course has to offer. starting off with an open immature front 9 tests you from the off, although the fairways tend to be a little wide. As ever, the natural Lincolnshire landscape tends not give you the most inventive course but with what they have they've done well. the back 9 is slightly more mature but lacking in length, the only real testing hole being the 14th, the rest are parrable even for the high handicapper, making it a nice change from the front 9. the advantage that the hole course has though is 'proper' rough; sticky and long, it will punish the wayward shots. what the course lacks in excitement though the clubhouse makes up for, a nice relaxed and welcoming atmosphere and some very good food boosts it score significantly. in closing, good but not great, they've done well with the tools available.
