About the Course The signature hole is surely "Curlies Corner". This hole has no room for error. At 184 yards from the medal tee, the green, surrounded by water, has ruined many a good card. The 15th is also a nerve tester, at just 257 yards par 4 and aptly named "Temptation". It has water on both sides of the hole, which needs a good drive and nerve to reach the green from the tee.

Apart from holes 12, 13 and 16, the course is boring. If you go in the bar for food, make sure you have plenty of time to spare and a lot of cash in your pocket. Many better courses in the area.

Poor layout. Tees in bad condition but fairways were worse. Greens not great. Off the course, the food is expensive and the facilities are below average. Will not be returning.

Very disappointed having read the previous reviews. Tired driving range, poorly stocked golf shop, tee boxes covered with divots and weeds, fairway grass not thick enough so can't be cut to the proper length, poorly maintained bunkers and some of the worst greens I've seen in a long time - firm, lumpy and full of holes. Many other courses in the area in much better condition and have much cheaper food & drink prices. Shame, because it has the potential to be a good golf course.

nice scenic golf course par 71 well kept greens and demanding tees make this a very enjoyable days golf . watch out for the out off bounds on the dog leg 6 and the water on the 15 & 16 .
you will love to take on the down hill 16 or will you ?
it is surrounded by water with a mote at the front.
have a fun round lads and lasses .

Played at Whitefields 16th/17th Oct 2010, to be honest i did not think much of the course, a few things stick out fairways were not that great & green would never take a ball, the tee boxes were not in great condition there is some interesting holes, hole 15 is a short par 4 which can reached with a strong 3 wood but you have water protecting the green, we played 2 rounds & both rounds took 5.5 hours to get round, this is was not on our part just to slow to get round. I think its a course i would not jump up & play again, if you are looking for a good course go to Wye Boston Bedford, great course

One word can describe this place "Superb" from the moment you come through the gates you are greeted with polite friendly people, I have played the course twice now once in summer where the greens are at a great standard, firing the ball at the pin is a must, and once again in the winter 2005 where considering the heavy down pours it put most courses in the region in there best summer nick to shame, the Hotel/ fairways bar is a credit to the designer and the staff are professional and well presented.
If I lived within 30 minutes of the course I would definitely join, and would recommend to any level of golfer.
