Summer update

We have had some glorious weather this month! The course is in excellent condition and we are grateful for the positive feedback from golfers both new and old to Porters Wood. Just a reminder - we are still a pay and play golf course - there is no booking system so you can visit at anytime to suit you. Green fees are CASH only - we don’t have a card machine. There is no dress code but we would ask people to dress respectfully. Golf shoes are not required, trainers or flat soled shoes are fine.

The last tee off time is 7.30pm. This will be brought back in around mid-august when the nights begin to draw in.

After a decent September we have endured some torrential rain at the beginning of October which has kept the course closed. Things have dried up and we are currently open. Looking at the forecast more heavy rainfall is expected from next week (19th October). If the course is too wet for play we will be closed so please make sure you ring us to check we are open on 01942 214777.

Course update

The course is looking and playing fantastic at the moment. Not been easy greenkeeping as we have had a very wet summer to date, but hopefully we will get some better weather this month. Please help us by replacing divots at all times and please put your litter in the bins provided.

We are not operating a booking system, it is still pay and play cash only. With the rules regarding coronavirus changing regularly we will be keeping the clubhouse closed for now, and all other restrictions are still in place. Please see the coronavirus measures page on the website. Opening hours will remain the same for now also.

As we head deeper into August please beware that the last tee off time will be brought back in as the nights draw in. I will update the website and the Facebook page once this begins to happen.
