Course Reviews

Played in the Seniors Open, 2 pairs in 4 ball, better ball. Course in great condition, greens quick and true. Open course, but not easy for wayward shots, a good approach shot to the greens essential. No litter anywhere on the course. Clubhouse friendly, decent pint of lager. Go back, without a doubt.

Played here late afternoon for the 2nd time in 2 weeks. As a beginner I really enjoyed Westerhope . The course is in great condition after the long dry spell and greens were very quick and true. With the course being within a few miles of me I am thinking of joining as a member. Would recommend.

First time playing here and it was a very neat and pleasant course to go around. Fairways were beautiful, as were the greens and the course was simple to navigate also. I had little to no complaints.

What a course. Only issue I had was finding the next tee boxes on a couple of the holes. The members we spoke to were very friendly as were the bar staff. The greenkeepers are doing an amazing job looking after the course. Will definitely be back again.

Lovely clubhouse with a good selection of drinks and very nice food. Course is very open but by all means not easy. Pro shop is good with helpful staff. Highly recommend a visit

Good, interesting golf course, greens in excellent condition. A good friendly clubhouse with an amazing view over the 18th green. Cheap buggy from a well-stocked shop too.
