Review's of Dunton Hills Golf Course
Great for price
Greens not great but the course is well maintained wide fairways and some tricky greens
Blastfrom the past
Have not played here for a number of years and it hasn't changed. Greens are patchy fairways hard to distinguish from rough in places. It's cheap so can't complain.
Cheap and cheerful
A pay and play course which is fine for a fun day out. The condition leaves a lot to be desired . The fairways were bumpy and the greens were very wooly and slow. But cheap at £12.50 . We were very lucky with the weather as it was a warm day with a breeze. I would not want to play here on a winters day. I would imagine you would freeze .The staff were friendly and helpful . So can't say never again , will have to wait and see.
cheap as chips
costs 12.50 to play Dunton Hills without any discounts which is definitely a cheap round of golf.
The greens are a bit woolly at times, so not sure if the ball will stop on the green or bounce off and variable paced, quite a hilly course, but you do get a few nice views at the tops of some of them. Staff have always appeared very friendly and polite to me and my son. It is just a shame that the course isn't cared for a little better, but it is about 2 miles from S Essex who charge twice the price, and not anywhere near as busy.
The course has a many bay range, putting green etc
It isn't a course I would want to play every week, but if you fancy a round and want it cheap, Dunto will allow this, and has a lovely outside and inside area for the 19th hole
I found the fairways poor, greens deceased and temp greens in place. Tee boxes were not cut and the whole course was in poor condition
Economical course, good food
The fairways are very dry even after all the recent rain. Unfortunately this means that although the ball will run, your second shot is difficult if you need to lift the ball.
The greens have no give in them seems to stop even when you think you have a chance of holing it..
Scored well, but will not be back in a hurry.
Dunton Hills was a very average course, the fairways are wide and there is not much rough to speak about. There are some ditches to contend with and some tree's but nothing much, it is a good course for high h'caps to practice.
It is also cheap(£12.50 weekday)which sometimes attracts the wrong sort of golfer. When I played last someone from the group in front threw my ball in a bunker after I had driven just short of the green on a par 4, after explaining where I was about to stick my wedge he replaced it, and this was a guy in his 50's not some youngster.
All in all it is worth the green fee but not on weekends when me and my son (11 year old)were charged £25 each.
Clubhouse and staff were friendly and the driving range and putting green are good. There is also a 18 hole Par 3 course to sharpen up your short game.
Dunton Hills - June 2011
Dunton Hills, a public pay and play course, just roll up and go is the ethos. Good practice facilities and good welcoming clubhouse/cafe. Cold drinks machine were a bit lucozade or leave it... (not too good for the diabetics amongst us).
Parkland course, with a links feel, not many mature trees (but you can still hit the odd one) and although there weren't any 'feature holes' the course is tight and challenging. Greens were soft and fluffy and slower than others at this time of year (but reasonably fair).
A nice walking course, good views and open to wind.
I'm told it is much improved - and it was a good day out, steady scoring was the key for me.
GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY
At this course you pay for what you get,at £12.50 its good VFM.Pleasant enough clubhouse,average practice facilities,the course has some good holes and others that make you wonder,like the par 3 where you cant see the green you play a blind shot over a hill,the 18th is a terrific finishing hole par 5 its risk and reward,the overall condition was not great as it is built on clay and the fairways where very hard with some cracks starting to appear,the greens need some T.L.C.THEY WHERE QUITE BAD.needed cutting badly they ran at different speeds as well.
This course could be quite nice with a bit more maintenance and money spent on it.However I would go back and play it again as I did enjoy the course layout it was a challenge.
Pay & Play £12.50
Nice little course for the dosh
Valued for money
Not a bad course at all. For £12.50 a round
Dunton Hills review
Course is fairly open. So can be windy. Other than that a good course for those of us still learning, and not having to worry to much about tree's either side of the fairway.
Not an expert on courses as I have only played 2
But my colleagues have played many courses and rate this course highly. I have marked 5 stars for value
I shared a buggy with a friend and it cost us £20 each for 18 holes. Good bar area and good bar meals
