Having played there many times , you can't beat the value £5 for nine holes , there is a problem with flags , but it's as cheap as driving range . When it's dry it not a bad course but like all courses suffers in the rain , stay away after school as kids messing about but other than that ok
Good points wide fairways that a now in relatively good condition, long par 4 third, nice par 3 second, long par 5 eighth. The course needs to be taken in context, it is a municipal golf course within a challenging social urban area that has many issues, and because of that it is to the staffs merit that it still exists. I have used it over the years since 1994 and I have played it with my son, younger brother and friends from all over the world and to be honest we have all laughed and even had some nice comment. The greens at the moment are improving and are very fast and the flag placements are tricky. Hopefully the years of vandals and inappropriate players are lessening. Brackley really suffers in the wet though and can change into a swampy mess in areas . It should be noted that I am lucky to be employed by a large organisation in the heart of Cheshire and have been fortunate to play and be a member of some of the best courses of that area. That said I still go to Brackley once a week with my younger brother who is now 44 and we really enjoy our nine holes and at £5 who can complain?
Played this a couple of days ago. It is in pretty poor condition - lots of mud. They are using mats at the moment and therefore most of the holes are shorter in length. The tricky 3rd hole is now a lot shorter with a new green half way down the fairway and the 4th is a par 3. What you can't argue with is the price - £5 for 9 holes. I would rather practice on here than on a driving range. Also pretty quiet, ideal for beginners.
This is a not a very good course, not even beginner/novice golfer's like myself, don't expect any frill's, you will want to play on much better courses very quickly. If it's been wet weather the course is little better than a bog, wear wellington's. Take a few extra ball's because you won't find your ball if it stray's off the fairway, crazy long rough. If you have a bad round and want to cheer yourself up a little ask how much it cost's to join the club as a full member, I almost wet myself laughing, 300 pound's is a joke. They use canes for green flags, zero bunker's, dog walker's everywhere, very little course etiquette by single player's. Winter green's are poor especially the 3rd which is a disgrace.
I took my friend for his 2nd ever round of golf on here and it was my first time on his course. The fairways are nice and wide, the greens are nice on certain holes but could do with some work on most, and the tees are not the best.Overall i would say this is a course for beginners or a practise course for high to middle handicappers.
i use brackley about once a fortnight went on saturday in the rain but we are now on winter greens this does shorten 3 rd and 4 th greens to much for my own personnel view . as these 2 holes are normally very challenging . iwill still use royal brackley as normall it is a good challenging coarse . good value for money .
Played course for first time on 17th July. No frills municipal course. Course quite open, reasonable length, but greens were sunbaked and could have done with bit of water, fairways reasonable. But cheap at £10 for 18 holes and seemed easy enough to get tee time.
Just come back from playing this course for the first time, & thought I'd add my own comments. At £6.00/ round during the week you wont find better value for money anywhere. As already stated the fairways are wide and the rough lite, but the greens are small and tight and can be difficult to hold. My local driving range is £5.00 for 2 buckets of balls, for an extra quid you can play this course and gain much more. I'll certainly be back.
Played this course for the first time on 9/4/04. It was a little difficult to find the way round at first due to the lack of clear tee markers, but some friendly regular players helped out. Some areas of the course were quite soggy due to recent heavy rain, but it looks like some work is being done to rectify the problem. Tees and fairways were generally good, but some of the greens need work. There were few distance markers in evidence. As a relatively new golfer I found the course a challenge and intend to play there on a regular basis. The prices have just gone up, but at £9.00 for 18 holes on a weekend or bank holiday it is still very good value for money. One tip if you are playing through the 18, get your drinks and nibbles before you start as it is a long walk from the 1st (10th) tee back to the shop.
Ideal for beginers, Greens aren't so good, but it has wide fairways. Well priced. Enough variation through out the course. The 3rd hole is abit of a beast when played at full length.
A good course for the high to middle handicap,the greens were in good condition when i went and i found it a challenge trying to beat my prev 9. in all a good course with down to earth staff not the stuck up ones like at many clubs that unless you go off a 6 or less your not worthy.
This is a pay and play 9 hole golf course. Wonderfull for beginners like myself, with tricky holes where you'd least expect them. staff are remarkably friendly with lots of advice and helpful information on the course procedures. food would be a bonus, other than that i would reccomend it to anyone .
Played the during the winter, very wet and the mats were just boards with holes and carpet on them. Very muddy and I would not recommend playing in the winter. However I played with a beginner and I could see that in the summer the course could be nice. Greens not very good but what do you expect for £4 per 9 holes. This course is good for a beginner and 2 of the holes were OK, however I started to get bored the 2nd time around. If you like your golf and are good, don't bother but if you are a beginner who wants to go somewhere where you won't be looked at for the numerous bad shots then its a good place to go.
good local course!!! the tricky 3rd with the two trees in front of the tee has provided many a challenge and a laugh too!!
Playing the course in a competition makes the course tougher than any other course/ ? reason, because you have to face the stroke index 1 hole twice, the hole in question is a very good golf hole, hole number 3 stroke index 1 462 yards par 4.
A very nice little course, suprisingly well kept and doesn't fit in with the urban surroundings. Challenging for the beginner like myself but very friendly and the price is excellent. Would recommend it to anyone.
Great course to learn golf on. Once you ignore the urban surrounds it is a lovely course to play. It's usually quiet and some challanging holes, notably 3 and8. Great value on weekdays. Don 7/4/01
GOOD 9 HOLE COURSE FOR THE BEGINNER WITH SOME CHALLENGING HOLES,NOTABLY THE 3rd AND THE 8th.DUE TO RECENT WEATHER COURSE IS A LITTLE STICKY IN PLACES AND THE PUBLIC FOOTPATH,WHICH RUNS THROUGH THE COURSE,CAN SOMETIMES BE OFF PUTTING.STAFF ARE FRIENDLY AND IF IT IS LIGHT ENOUGH THEN THERE WILL BE PLAYERS ON THE COURSE.BEGINNERS PLEASE NOTE THERE IS NO SHARING OF CLUBS ALLOWED FOR THOSE WITHOUT THEIR OWN SET.
Excellent course for beginers due to the large open fairways with few hazards some good holes particularly the third which will test you out a very long par 4 with two trees in the way and adog leg. Green fees are very competitive and is run by very friendly staff,
A nice sized course for a nine holer with some big par 4s and a massive par 5. Some tricky greens
