5 reviews of Winter Hill Golf Club
I recently played winter hill and found the course to be in fairly poor condition. The pro-shop staff (if you can call it a pro shop) were not very friendly and approachable. The greens were slow and bumpy, the fairways seemed more like the second cut. After our round I went for some lunch in the very dated clubhouse and had to wait a lifetime to be served and even longer for the food to come... I didn't feel I got value for money on the and expected more from a Private Members Club, and a fair greater service expreience from a place owned and run by John Lewis...
A nice course, but not a great challenge to a good player. The course is presented beautifully, decent clubhouse and food. But tee times are not arranged great.When we got to the 10th there were 3 groups rolling-up, and we couldn't play in front of them.It meant we had to go in to have lunch and play the back 9 later. Also, the front 9 was very very slow. But good value for the £21 we paid on the county card.
Having always enjoyed playing Winter Hill over a number of years I was very impressed when I played there yesterday. There have been a number of changes to the course and it's definition is now outstanding. It has always been "very nice" but now I consider it to be excellent. Well done to all who have had an input to the changes and long may it continue to be a top class course.
Excellent drainage being on the top of a hill, fairways were dry even during the floods. No water hazards or ditches make for an easier passage to the greens which are also in very good condition. Played late one Sunday, and the bar (and everthing else) was shut at 8:00pm!
