8 reviews of Brampton Park Golf Club
My overall impression of the course was that it was well kept and in good condition. Par 3s are all pretty callenging needing a long iron in. Par 5s on the front 9 are straight forward, dog leg on the back 9 is pretty tricky with ditches in driving distance and on your approach. There are 9 par 4s of which they are all dog legs with multiple hazards put in place to stop you using the driver. This means you would really have to play the course a couple of times to work out your tee shot and club selection. Personally I like to see my target for my drive and don't enjoy having to play iron off the tee on a sub 400yd par 4 to be left with 180 - 200yds in. There is a lot of walking between tees and quite easy to get lost, I got lost at the 5th, 12th and the 15th
Two of us played this course in early January, paying £18.50 per head with a 2 fore 1 voucher. The welcome in the Pro-Shop was very warm and efficient - a good first impression that continued around the course itself. Given the torrential rain of the previous 24 hours the course was in great nick, with one hole (16th) on a temporary green as part of the fairway was under water. The course is a mix of tree lined holes where accuracy is crucial and a number of holes with more of a parkland feel. You start with a really tight shot in to the first green surrounded by water and soon follow up with the par 3 fourth in to an island green. Subsequent holes all require good course management to negotiate the various ditches, water and cleverly placed bunkers. The greens were true with some tricky pin positions even at this time of the year. Overall Brampton was a really enjoyable experience helped by me shooting 4 under my handicap. I look forward to going back and recommend others to give it a try
Played on 07/10/2009 at 6 p.m. and the course was very nice, however I would not recommend walking the course with a trolley. The distance of the course is not what will get you it is the added distance between the green and the next tee box. The twilight rate was brilliant 13 quid for 18 holes and a trolley for a visitor. Overall I think that the course was fantastic eventhough the ground was very hard and the ball bounced off of every thing (adding 30 yards to every shot). For my first UK golf expierence it was great I recommend this course to everyone.
Played here in mid July (immediately after club championship-we were told later) during the long dry spell, the fairways are suffering from lack of water. The pin positions on some greens were in quite sever positions, making birdie puts quite a rare breed. Despite the obvious watering on and around the greens, they were quite firm and few pitch marks were found. Overall an interesting course with a good variety of holes requiring thoughtful shots off the tee. One small criticism, a few more indicators showing the route from green to the next tee would be useful. Nice food and friendly staff
Played this course as a 4 ball on 6th August. The course was in excellent condition, but the enjoyment of the afternoon was marred by a group of members behind us who took it upon themselves to make contact with the Pro in the shop, who proceeded to trapse out to the 8th hole to ask us to speed up. Given we were directly behind the 2 ball in front of us, there was little we could do to speed up our play. However, the members then decided to pepper us with drives and approach shots until the 14th whereby they then took a shortcut to a later hole. Another warning - when I telephoned to book on 2F1, I was quoted the green fee's for a round. When we arrived the Pro Shop tried to charge us for day rates even though we were only playing 1 round. Be careful. The establishment could be forgiven for trying to discourage visitors, because after all this is a very good course and one which you may wish to keep to yourselves if you were a member. But visitors beware !
this course has always been one of the best courses in the area and if you use a two fore 1 voucher then the rounds are excellent value for money. many holes need some degree of course planning due to strategically placed hazards. this means that 'hit and hopers' need to think about their tee shots instead of automatically choosing the driver! the driving range offers a good opportunity to loosen up and offers the rarity of practising with good quality balls. the wildlife is in abundance and brampton is always worth a visit if you are in the area.
Not a long course by any means, Some very interesting holes. You will use all the clubs in your bag for this one.
Played the course yesterday 5 June 2002. It was in generally good condition with the greens good but slow. Some bunkers with light coloured sand were very good but the ones with darker sand were dreadful with very little hard packed sand. The course has some odd holes, especially 16 and 17 and overall the course favours the shorter hitters. No par 4s over 400 yards off the yellows. You need to hit irons or 5 woods off many tees to avoid reaching ditches that run across fairways or running out of fairway because of doglegs. Also we were a visiting 2 ball and the 4 ball of 2 male and 2 female members in front would not let us through and held us up for about 12 holes!
