Wow - the badminton course does not fit in with this place. It’s literally like a field which they purchased to gain some more revenue, with little regard for its impact on the overall experience. It does have some good par 3s but that’s about it. It was wet as a bog, boring and poorly kept. It also took a genuine 20minute walk from the club house to get too and then we had another 20min walk back to start our back 9 on the hollows course. You also walk in and around parts of the Ruffet course en route to/from the Badminton course, which must be really annoying if you’re playing the Ruffet, let alone it’s dangerous. The Hollows course was a lot better though and the 9th was a good hole to finish on. If you can play the Hollows/Ruffet courses together you’ll likely enjoy your round - and that should be the only 18 on offer. The Badminton should be a 9 holer only, used as a beginners course.
The Kendleshire was designed by Adrian Stiff, who also completed the remarkable project at the nearby Players Club, and is also a fantastic resort style layout.
