First impressions as you arrive at Bradley Park are really good, and nothing on the course itself lets itself down afterwards. Tees, fairways, and especially the greens, were all in really good condition. The greens were unbelievably smooth and quick, and something you might not be expecting from a muni course that charges £10/12 (depending on whether you're registered at the golf course) on Mondays.
The fairways are generally wide and forgiving, but they are pretty much all tree lined and can certainly make you think before you pull out the driver. My one critisism of the course is that a number of the holes are a little "samey", but that shouldn't detract from the quality of the course.
There aren't a lot of markers showing you where the next tee is, so make the most of the map on the card otherwise it will get confusing. I also struggled with distances to the green, but again, look at the card for guidance (I didn't realise this until after my round).
Think all the hot weather has claimed a lot of the soft ground - it was rather firm but all bunkers raked, all fairways, greens and light rough well maintained.
As it's a council run club, I was expecting worse but was very pleasantly surprised!
I'll definitely go back
