15 reviews of Concord Park Municipal Golf Course
Avoid at all costs, Its a shame, the overall lay out of the course is quite good but the greens are terrible, it's a a perfect example of you get what you pay for. When i first started this was a great place to learn but after visiting different courses in Sheffield this isn't worth the time, effort or money! Now the thing that really annoys me is the locals, i understand this isn't the clubs fault but i was playing the 12th hole which is down hill, shaping to hit my 2nd shot and a group of lads came through on pedal bikes and proceeded to skid on the green taking the grass of making it unplayable. The same young lads had also found it hilarious to take the flags out of the holes...hilarious. Overall it has the ability to be a good course but without investment and the locals growing up i cant bring myself to visit again.
I live near to this golf course and used to play here a lot but in recent years I have to say I'm getting more and more disappointed with the course. It's a small course compared to others and has the potential to be so much better with just a few little changes. I only play here occasionally now as you can just turn up and play and to be fair it is good value for money but there never seems to be any investment or upgrades. The greens are as good as any local clubs but the tees are cut to a length that runs straight into the fairways that runs straight into the greens. There is no semi rough or anywhere for the ball to hold up. In the summer this can make it pretty much umplayable.The course doesn't have much character. I don't think this is down to the green staff as there is only 3 as far as I know who do a great job with what they have but they don't play golf (apart from the youngest Greenkeeper i think) so they dont spend any time on nicer, well looked after courses where they could learn from. With just a bit of tweeking concord could be one of the best around South Yorkshire. Golfers are fussy and appreciate the little details. The manager needs to address this or maybe have a change ofhead Greenkeeper to one who knows a bit more about golf. I.e the young Greenkeeper. All inn all id still give this course a visit as it is cheap and you can then make up your own minds. Mark
from arriving to leaving, the club and all its staff made our society feel really welcome. the course is,nt very long but still a challenging course never the less.from a two ball to a society match i would recommend you try it out yourselves.
Located on Wincobank Hill, Sheffield and within 5 minutes drive from the M1 Motorway, Concord Park is conveniently positioned for many golfers from the Steel City. The course has an unusual layout as the opening 9 holes are full length whilst the closing 9 holes consist of 5 par 3’s and 4 par 4’s. The overall length is a modest 4612 yards which is more suited to the mid to high handicap golfer. Although a municipal golf course, the fairways and greens are often in a below average condition which can result in the golf ball rolling inconsistently.
Having read the latest 2 reviews, this course is somewhere between the two points of view. I have played the course several times this year and really enjoyed it initially. The fairways are well maintained and the greens in good condition. In the recent dry weather the course has become hard and given the shortness of the holes there is the tendancy for the ball to regularly go through the greens and get lost in the woods even if you take a shorter club than normal. It is a short course but it is a good test for your short game, especially the back nine which has plenty of par 3's. The outwood nine is a regular course length with 2 par 5's. There are some severe slopes which punish you (10th in particular where the ball will run across the 15th and into the rough despite where you hit it!)This is frustrating but adds to the toughness of the course. The par 3 6th requires total accuracy. Signature hole? Like the short 16th across the ravine and the testy 11th up a steep hill with woods punishing any shot which is short or to the right. The 14th is also a pleasing short Par 3. You do get locals wandering through the course, coming on and playing for nothing, but at £11 per round its a good starter course and value for money. The pro is always helpful and whilst there are downsides its a great course for a quick round on the way home from work.
Seriously - 5 stars - are you joking?? This is easily the worst course in the Sheffield area - blind tee shots on Par 3's?? - Poor drainage - poor clubhouse. One dogleg hole can be reached by hitting to the corner and letting the ball run all the way downhill to the green - fine until the local kids have already stolen your golf ball and run off into the woods. May be better if they installed Windmills on some of the holes as it's a bit like crazy golf out there.
a difficult and hilly course with the added suppliment of sloping fairways any wayward drive will have you looking for your ball(take more than one with you)when the fairways have been cut it is a pleasure to play the par 3,s are an absolute pleasure to play,but watch out for the seventh rated as a par 3 but plays a par4 but overal a test for golfers of every handicap
Just got back from a round.Had a gr8 time.the course is in very good condition for the time of year.friendly and helpfull staff..what more could you want?
This is my home course, very friendly in clubhouse/ shop.The course is very hilly (hire a buggy)some nice par3s and a couple of terrible holes (especially in summer the 10th &12th are blind all downhill sure thing you will loose your ball or get it nicked)It is good value but gets very busy all year considering this the course is in good condition with the amount of people who use it .Can atract idiot golfers who have no concept of the rules of golf, kids on motorbikes can be nuisance but this is a public park.Give it a go you may like it .
A short, but quirky parkland course well worth checking for a different day out. It has been revised over the last few years, unfortunately ridding of the old long 200 yard uphill par 3 second and 230 yard par 3 ninth to accomodate an extra par 5 and par 4 to extend the course. Of the front nine, the par 3 sixth stands out, as a tight shot through the trees to slightly raised green above a sea of trouble. The second and fourth require accuracy with the out of bounds on left, while the eight and ninth provides the John Dalys oppurtunity to get home in one. Of the back nine, the tenth is my favourite. Down into the steep valley with the copse on the left, trees and stream to the right ensuring that the absolute perfect tee shot is required. The blind short par 4 twelfth around the trees requires a lot of skill, whilst the par 3 sixteenth over the ravine is a spectacular challenge. If you ever end up in the 'Devil's Dike' bunker on the 17th then you might as well just mark a 12 on your card... Overall the shortness may detract, but the unique par threes and driveable par fours provide a fun day out. Remember the driving range, leisure centre and clubhouse that pulls a great pint!
A very difficult course to play with some great par 3's, check out the 16th, over the ravine of trees with its own babbling brook, I prefer the temporary green on this hole myself. Then there is the tricky sixth, where if you don't hit the perfect tee shot between the trees you've got to go looking for the ball. I can imagine the sixth hole to be busy with hold ups in the summer. Another favourite is the postage stamp sized fifth green which believe me can be very fast, a true test of any good golfers metal. Incidently a larger fifth green is in the process of being built behind this original and if it looks like it does then as it does now we are in for a real treat, the topography of the sward has to be admired, a very large green with four flat playing surfaces. I have played Concord golf course twice now and will certainly be back again, oh check out the local flora and fauna, loads of blue bells, wild mushrooms and I even heard a woodpecker, see you again...
not a easy one people could say it's hilly but only on 2 or 3 holes some excellent par 3's recomend it but dont expect to play to handycap as i say its hard
not a bad little course although the food is not too good but the beer is lovely and at £1.50 A PINT its grrrrreeeeeeaaaat.......
Very well maintained course. Very Hilly, with alot of Par 3's The hire of motorised golf buggies for £8.00 certainly helps with travelling around the course. The course gives excellant views of the M1 and Meadowhall Shopping Centre.
This course is certainly different. Played it in October and it was in excellent condition. Made to feel very welcome by the locals. Very hilly with some unusual Par 3's, especially on the back 9 holes. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
