Golf course in Coventry

Postby plastic_manc » Mon Sep 21, 2009 4:24 pm

Anyone recommend a golf course in Coventry.

Not looking for a serious course, just something like a 9 hole par 3 or something.

I sometimes go Memorial Park and Allsley Park but looking for somewhere else to try.

If your making the step up first you need to get yourself down the range and practice. Going from playing the memorial park to a full course could destroy you and you'll never wanna go back.

Try up Ansty. They have a range, could prob do you a decent cheap lesson to cover the basics and get you started. And if memory serves they also have a par 3 course. Then try the full course, and check out Brandon as well [smilie=icon_mrhappy.gif] ;-) . Not as good as a couple of years back but still a good track.

I did try a full course in Stratford once.... it didn't put me off, but it was a long slog.

Cheers, I'll look into Ansty never heard of said place but if they have the par 3, it'll be perfect.

:lol: the course is stunning, the club house is about 1000-1500m below the 1st tee. You check in, mini bus takes you up and you play down. The 1st 3 or 4 holes leave you short of breath as the air is so thin :shock: Its like a ski slope without the snow :lol: The 10th hole is the most stunning I've ever played, breath taking views.

Sounds amazing but if just about every hole is downhill it must be piss easy......typical ex pat twats living in lala land, playing golf on a ski slope with 18 views of the Ocean.......what do you moan about? :lol:

tee to green is not the most difficult I've played but the greens are something else :shock: Some of the hardest greens you will ever have to read. Played it once with an ex-pro, he said it really made the course special 8)

Is any golf actually any good to play? I always thought it was more about escaping from this missus/family for a bit and the chance to have a few beers and dress up like a ****!

Can't remember what it was called, though it was halfway through major redevelopment, moving part of the course or extending or something
