Interesting Course In Places !!
I visited Mill Green GC yesterday, on a lovely sunny afternoon, for the first time and found it to be quite interesting in places, although quite a few of the front nine holes were either doglegs or blind holes and fairly open. Once you cross the road, the back nine became a lot more interesting and challenging with water and tree lined fairways. The uphill par 3 15th was a very nice hole surrounded by trees, it gave that nice echo when the ball came off the club. The course was fairly flat, which made a nice change, not having to struggle up hills in the wintry weather. Clubhouse was fresh and clean and the service came with a smile throughout. Well worth a visit, especially with discounted rates for TSG Members as it's a Crown course !!
Well worth playing
Mill Green golf course was very nicely laid out front 9 quite short and fairly open you can score well if you keep the ball straight the rough is quite difficult so stay out, the back 9 totally different very mature parkland it seems like 2 different course this is more difficult water and bunkers in play that will destroy you all in all a great course
Don't want to be critical of this course as it is a nice course. Holes 15, 16 & 17 are fantastic but the rest of the course is just ok. Clubhouse is very very nice and the staff/pro are very friendly. Wouldn't pay the full green fee to play here, very expensive for what it is. Wouldn't put anyone off going there just not sure I'll be rushing back.
I'd been meaning to play here for a while and was pleased I got around to it - its a good course! Two contrasting nines make for a good mix - the first 9 being farily open but the fairways start to close in on you after the turn, as you enter more parkland terrain. The greens were in great condition and on a 2for1 openfairways, I thought £17 was great value! Pro shop staff were a little aloof but the food at the bar was great! Will go back.....
