5 reviews of Wellingborough Golf Club
I would say that you could describe this course as a good parkland course with some interesting holes. We played as a 4 ball mid week and overall the experience was OK. The greens area bit ropey for this time of year, they are fast but generous in size. This said if you are in the wrong place, 3 putting is odds on. Club house is very impresive from the outside but the interior lets it down, small and looks tired. Bar staff very friendly as is the pro but experienced quite a few members who gave the impression that they didn't welcome pay & players. Atmosphere at bit snobby overall but I put that down to the members age!! We would play it again as long as we didn't need to interact with the members!!
As previous reports have said, the clubhouse is magnificent from the outside but isn't used to its best inside with only a small bar area. That said, it didn't cause us a problem for a society - I just wouldn't like that set-up as my own club....anyway I digress. Wellingborough as a course is superb, with quick greens, a good mixture of tough holes and ones where you can score and a very friendly membership and staff which made our day all the more enjoyable. Great Harrowden Hall provides a magnificent backdrop to the golf course and we shall return time and time again!
Played this course under 2-fore-1 at a cost of £24 per person for a round. What a treat! Excellent condition, wonderful scenery with some thinking to do on every hole. Whilst not especially long from the yellows this is not a course where you can pull the driver out on every tee - you gain a lot from playing for position and, with only two par 5's, distance is less of an issue. Friendly welcome, and with great surroundings this club is well worth a visit. My only gripe would be the clubhouse which does not make anything like the best of what is available - a bit of a let down.
I have been fortunate enough to play this course a number of times over the last year or so, with a member. The course is always in excellent condition, with good drainage in place. The course provides a real challenge where you have to give thought to improvisation, rather than blasting the ball in to oblivion. I have always found the greens to be in excellent condition, with plenty of contours, and bunkers to guard. The 18th is a 270 yard par 4, with water down the left and the beautiful Harrowden Hall as a back drop - a real stunner. This course is definitely well worth a visit, expecially if you can use your 2 fore 1 vouchers. Excellent value for money
played here for £20 for the day on the 2 fore 1 deal . This course is excellent - superb condition - geens fast & true. Best value golf ever . Club house is an Harrowden Hall all very impreseive . Only 02 par 5's and 02 par 03's so 14 par 04 - very mature trees and quite undulating. A couple of holes on the back nine are a bit too sloping and in dry weather it could be difficult to hold the ball on the fairway . In conclusion a classis English parkland course - well worth a visit
