Attended a club away day(Duxbury Park),on 7th June 2013.From the moment we got there,hospitallity was outstanding.Kind,warm staff and very efficient.Bacon butty excellent.
9 holes (front )played am.Tricky front 9. If you drive long,but are not on your game.It can punish you. Back in Clubhouse lunch time, for great soup and sandwich. Comfortable wait between eating and 18 holes .
Played 18 in afternoon,back 9 more interesing than front. Some lovely holes. Back in for evening meal. Excellent roast beef and veg,all first class.Real deal meal.Home made, an beef excellent, again, service and hospitallity first rate.
It was nice to see our club was made welcome via lots of printed A4 sheets,also having the starter at first tee was excellent.Very friendly bloke,nothing was to much trouble.
The greens were mentioned by some as to not being in greatest condition.For me they were ok. Same for everybody,it is about putting and adapting. Our winner got 40pts, so cannot be that bad.
Had a great day,thank you all at Malkins Bank.Hope we come back.

A nice course with some interesting and challenging holes, plenty of variety and suitable for scratch to high handicaps. There are a few holes that could do with some work on them, but generally, the course is in good condition. Can become a little tatty in the autumn, mainly due to the large number of leaves being shed by the hundreds of trees around the course, but the glorious autumn colours make up for this. In summer on a warm bright day, it's a joy. Very good value for money it's well worth a visit. Club house is small, but clean and functional and great for society golf.

No longer a Municipal but a privately operated Course with pay + play... Now run by Golfers for Golfers improvements unbelievable and ongoing. Name not given October 28, 2011
This is the best golf course I have played and the practice facilities are the best I have seen. Bob (Pre 2010)
This course is as good as most in the area including private
ones. Fairways/greens are excellent, only the lack of sand
in the bunkers lets it down, then again no worse than on many
private courses and the 19th hole is a bit on the small side
but can accomodate most Societies with all the usual catering
facilities, what is really special is that attached to the
course is a private club which positively encourages newcomers
to the game to obtain a handicap and play in the competitions
which are held every week of the year, anyone new to the game
wishing to learn how to proceed correctly should consider
joining as should any golfer new to the area, all are welcome
no limit on the membership, always open with annual club membership
under £50.00 and season tickets available from the council
for green fees one could play golf 7 days a week for less
than the price of one game a week, competitors have a handicap
range from 2 to 28 and an active seniors (mid week) ladies
and juniors sections exist. Anyone interested in joing the
club should contact the Secretary you will be made welcome. David (Pre 2010)
The course is in excellent condition this year with the greens and fairways being well looked after. Its not a difficult course to play as even with a poor first shot you can still look to reach the greens in two on par fours. The only gripe I have is that it tends to get over booked at the weekends with long waits at tee offs. Which does not help with the enjoyment. Simon (Pre 2010)
Good course not too challenging if you can hit it straight. On the down side the greens need rolling, too many spike holes where the drainage is bad. Overall ** Pete Warburton (Pre 2010)
As secretary of the newly formed "Prince of Wales Golf Society", I arranged our first comp at Malkins Bank.
The weather has not been kind to us this year but Malkins was in exellent condition considering. We received a very hospitable reception both from the pro shop straight through to the caterers. I would recommend any new society to visit there, it was value for money and an excellent round of golf...
Thanks once again from 28 satisfied Prince members. Eddie Price (Pre 2010)
