It was ok Royal Ashdown West Course
Just average, will I play it again - yes. Difficult to judge the course as there has been no rain for a long time, so I would like to play again when greener and in better condition. Overall the course had good scenery, if you go off the fairway, it’s tough and losing balls , not a lot though, but will happen. West Course was the cheaper than the Old Course, but not sure the difference in price for the Old Course is justified. It was ok.
Im looking to play as much cheap golf as i can this summer and at royal ashdown forest i was not left disappointed.
£20 a round or half that with 2 for 1 vouchers, the guy in the pro shop couldn't have been more helpfull.
The west course measures up to 5500 yards from the white tees(no yellow tees) with quite a few challenging holes(18th being my pick of the best), greens not in the best shape as you suspect most of the budget is spent on the prestige old course.
Royal Ashdown & the West Course
I'm a member and play the West Course. This course has narrow fairways and you must be a straight hitter! Only 5600 yards but a good test of golfing skill as the greens are small.
The Royal is a great course. No bunkers but plenty of heather! The 11th (par 3 245 yards) is a fantastic golf hole to rival the very best.
