8 reviews of The Kendleshire Golf Club
Played the Kendleshire twice recently, the course was in fantastic condition, well done the green staff! Certainly not an easy course, second time around with more local knowledge led to an improved score. My Achilles heal was the water holes where you got to be accurate, plenty of lake balls in there! Looking forward to going back.
A very enjoyable course that needs a bit of thought to get around. No use standing on the tee with a driver everytime. Greens were good and fairways nice - very little rough to speak of. I have to say though that a big critisism is the lack of signage on tees or from green to next tee. I was playing with a partner who plays here regularly so he was able to point me in right direction but without previous experience you could end up wandering about a bit. Its a small thing but the most society friendly courses have a little hole plan on each tee.
For those of you who don't already know...Bristol is a golfing goldmine and the Kendleshire is just one of the reasons to organise a golf tour around these parts. I have been lucky enough to play all three of the nine hole loops at the Kendleshire and they are all equally as good as eachother. If you dont hit the ball all that straight I would take plenty of golf balls...either that or some scuba gear as water is in play on 18 out of 27 holes. Every hole has a risk versus reward element and I would imagine the course would be suitable for players of most abilities...it is certinaly not exclusive to the low handicappers. This is a relatively new layout and when it has matured fully it will rival some of the best courses in the country.
The Kendleshire was the host of our society championship and while not being any better than the courses we have played on this year it did have more of a tournament course feel to it. On arrival we were made to feel more than welcome and the trays of bacon rolls were gratefully received having missed my bowl of cornflakes before setting off on the trip down. The courses has 27 holes and plays as a loop of 18 with other 9 holes tucked in some far off corner of the county. Credit to the course staff tho, as they ferried us down after a hearty lunch which again was more than generous. How did i found the course? well its similar in layout and design to many of the courses that run along side the M4. it has a great mix of par 4's that gives u options off the tee in terms of club selection and approach shots are varied in terms of dangers that await stray shots. I enjoyed the par 3's, all accept one on the 18 hole loop were well presented and tough challenges. The par 5's are not memorable but should provide chances to improve your score. As i've said we played the remaining 9 holes after lunch, unlike the 18 u get more of a sense of being crammed in but holes all have more character to them and they provided a very different challenge to the morning, The holes playing over and around the hill proving to be the toughest. I will say that on the day i played the wind was the real winner. It blew a gale and really made the course a tough bugger to crack, i will return no doubt and find it hard to really find fault with the course. Sure it lacks history but that can only come with time and i do get a sense this course will improve and mature rather well in the coming years
Excellent course - played the old course in the morning and then front nine of the old and the new nine in the afternoon. Lots of interesting holes, especially on the back nine of the old, quite a few shots over water! Very good food and friendly service! Only complaint is the walk to the new course (must be about 3/4 of a mile to get there - and once you finish you need to walk back again!) - if playing on the new course, get a buggy! Overall though one of the best courses I've played in the area (probably on par with Bowood).
Really nice course, very well manicured and the greens are very consistent and true throughout. The round can be a little slow but that allows you to concentrate how to play the many varied holes. Quite costly at £27 on a weekday but worth it.
Very nice course, the two water holes are good fun. Greens are in excellent condition. For a very busy sunday afternoon, got round without hardly any delay. Back nine are much more challenging than the front, did find some holes a bit the same, but overall a very nice course.
This has got to be Bristol's best golf course.Every hole is challenging, one with an island green.Plenty of bunkers to attract your ball and lots of lakes to wash the sand off afterwards. The greens are amazing and overall, the course is in fabulous condition. Friendly staff and members.Go play.You won't be disappointed.
