I am not a member of the club, but am seriously considering
it now. I took my father there on a sunday morning for a round
and was made to feel very welcome by both the staff and the
members. Everyone seemed keen and enthusiastic about the club
and were happy to advise on anything
from weather conditions at the far end of the course to the
green speeds that day. Green fees are very reasonable and
we only had to wait 5 minutes to get on the 1st tee. The course
itself is quite demanding, not because of its length but more
to do with its shape. There are many doglegs on the course
meaning that i only took a driver from about 4 tees. You have
to think your way around here, which is refreshing in a day
where most relatively new courses are sticking to the american
ideal of massive, long, straight fairways and fast greens.
There is a good mixture of difficulty
throughout the course and it is maintained well. Beware though,
it gets very windy out on the course, it is very exposed to
the elements. My only gripe with the course is that it is
very disorienting as you go around. There seems to be no real
pattern to the hole layout, which, as innocuous as
it sounds does cause you to wonder where you are at some points.
By and large though this is an excellent course with a great
club house and friendly staff. I shall be going back soon.

A course with that rare mixture of an entertaining course
followed by a club house with a frienly relaxed feel to have
a drink and a meal in. The holes with the hidden water traps
are great fun and the angled holes are a challenge. Well worth
their reasonable fees.

Following recommendations from friends about the current
Green conditions at Welton Manor, I decided it was the ideal
place to take my brother in-law.
We played on a weekday where we benefitted from a cheaper
green fee, however the weekend still offers a very reasonalbe
rate for the current conditions.
I enjoyed an excellent steak in the Falconer (clubhouse) with
both our partners where the staff were very welcoming in their
Had a very enjoyable time myself as well as my brother in-law.

I have recently been contacted by many members and guests
of Welton Manor Golf Club and the feedback that i have received
has been very encouraging. I have been informed that the greens
are among some of the best in the area. I am a local resident
of the area and am impressed by the tranquil setting and the
work that appears to be done on the course. I am a 7 handicap
golfer and have played golf all over the country at well established
courses. I hope that new courses like Welton Manor succeed
in a very competitive market. The efforts that are being made
by all of the staff and management would suggest that given
time the course and its facilities should be successful. I
hope to play the course in the near future and see the developments
for myself. I would encourage visitors to give Welton Manor
a visit and assist in making the club a venture the local
area can be proud of.

After playing this course a few times before we looked forward to a return in the sunshine, unfortunately we soon realised how things had changed, the staff where rude and hostile the course was in poor condition, and we where made to feel unwelcome. You would think that a society that has historically visited at least 2 times a year spending HUNDREDS of pounds each time they would be pleased to see us but we were made to feel a problem to them so be warned we will not be returning.

What a little gem! The course is laid out with imagination and it really makes you think about where to play the ball. The greens are fabulous and you can really see that a lot of time has been taken on the upkeep.
You must play this course it is excellent.
Value For Money: Good
