Review's of Maylands Golf & Country Club
Worth the visit
Being my first game with TGS and being missing from golf for years it suited me fine, a forgiving course, fairways suffering a bit with many bare patches, overall I liked the course and would play there again.
Lovely little course
Firstly dont be confused by the "golf and country club". it aint that grand! clubhouse a littl dated but does the job of serving a drink and a sandwich
The course..... For January i thought it was i great nick. Not a long course which suited me and some tight interesting holes. having said all of that soon as i hit the m25 i couldnt remember a single hole! For 20 quid with a bacon roll and a cup of cofee you would do very well to find a better deal in the winter. Definitely go back again and i dont say that to often
very enjoyable day . Give it a try
Good value for money and an enjoyable round
This is certainly not Wentworth but for £12 you can't go wrong!
Staff in the club house were very friendly and welcoming.
The course was very enjoyable even though it was December and quite wet.
Lovely course glad I went along, barring diverts on course.
The course is very good and open fairways, bunkers could do with more sand in. The only thing I don t like about the course and other one,s is that people do not replace their diverts after iron shots.
Other than that very good course.
Good all rounder
the course was in good condition considering the miserable weather and we had a good round.worth playing.
its a good value when paying around £15 but not worth more these days with the offers around.
we paid £15 and well worth the money
Not a long course but lots of trees and some deep bunkers to contend with.
Didn't go in the club house as the green fee was already paid, practice areas were a tad frozen, so didn't use them either. Nice course to play, nice scenery too. Greens were rather frozen which messed up the putting a bit. So if Ed Mc has a game up to play there for £15 I'd play again, in fact I am next week and looking forward to it
Very nice woodland course with some really good holes, a couple of which are very tight off the tee. Wet and soggy when I played but will be playing this course again. Would be a great track in the summer.
There was both good and bad about playing my first ever round at Maylands in December. The downsides appears to be how wet the course can be, and the noise from the M25 that follows you through your round. That said, I found that I tuned out the noise fairly quickly.
The greens were slower than a lot of courses I've played recently, although they looked very good and the ball ran very true. The fairways are fair and generally wide, with only one or two that could be described as tight. The 7th in particular is especially narrow if you have a driver in your hand.
I wouldn't describe the course as hilly, but it is very undulating.
Overall I enjoyed playing Maryland's (despite my score here). The course is very pleasant and there are some nice holes, and I wouldn't hesitate in going back for a return round.
Well worth a visit
First timer, in very wet conditions but thouroughly enjoyed it. Think this is a great course for all levels and definitely worth a visit. Will be going back.
Inter Club Match
Cannot comment on cost as this was a Club match, and I only used the practice putting green.
The first hole made sure that a provisional was played if the ball went in the rough..
Some holes were shorter in yardage, but beware, you have to think where you need to play the ball.
The par 3's are not as easy as you would think.
Par 4's play longer than the yardage.
And the par 5's can help your card (unless I was plying well)....
If the catering we experienced is normal then make sure you eat, although I'm not sure of cost...
Mature parkland course (never have temporary greens)
Mature parkland course. With undulating fairways, some tight holes with O/B’s, doglegs and undulating greens, fast & true, with some super 'driving' holes. Fairways, bunkers & greens were in good condition. Some holes & Tee’s crisscross. Practise putting green, large chipping area, driving nets & friendly staff. Some ball washers at the Tees. This is my sort of course I definitely be a member & recommend
Also Maylands never have temporary greens.
Hmmmm, not sure I'll be back....
Now given this course is only 3 miles from my front door I have no idea why I hadnt tried it before? However, despite it being a fairly pretty and well kept course, I didnt find it particulary memorable?! Some of the holes run along side the M25 and no amount of netting is going to drown this out (try fencing guys!) but that didnt put me off....I guess the place just didnt seem to have much of an atmosphere....in fact, whilst no one was unpleasant to us, I didnt feel I was made particulary welcome either and so wont be rushing back. At some stage private clubs will realise they are businesses too and they will not survive unless the treat visitors like customers rather than just tourists!!
WHAT AN IMPROVEMENT
I have played here twice in the last week,the change is fantastic(see previous review)
£20 after 1.00p.m this course now takes some beating,the all round condition is very good and getting better,this is now almost to the standard when the EURO-PRO TOUR was here last.I will be looking forward to my next visit.
Maylands is a terrific mix of mature, very well laid out holes on a super piece of undulating countryside.
The condition of the course was very good considering the recent lack of rain, greens were quick and tricky but a very fair test of your putting skills. Fairways and first cut off rough were good and again will get even better with some rain. Minor gripe with a lack of depth of sand in one bunker i found myself visiting, although others were fine.
The clubhouse is homely and welcoming, staff were helpful, changing facilities are better than most, practise facilities whilst not fully used by me look to be comprehensive.
I look forward to playing here again.
Nice, parkland course.
Good practice facilites and a nice bar.
