What a fantastic venue, the food was awesome, the staff in the pro shop and the hotel couldn't do enough for you, and IPA Green king was only £2.55 a pint, on a more serious note there isn't one, the Hotel can not be faulted, the two golf courses were in lovely condition and it was a pleasure to play them, If you haven't been there yet you should, you won't be disappointed. I don't know what else to say just that I know we will be going back in the near future for another weekend. Thanks for all your hard work in the beginning as things weren't looking to good at one point were they? but it all worked out in the end. All the best, and speak to you again soon.

Golf Courses at Stoke by Nayland Hotel, Golf & Spa
The par-72 Gainsborough Course measures some 6,498 yards from the championship markers, and the tremendous rolling countryside is home to a truly spectacular layout, which is designed around the four expansive lakes that can wreak havoc with your scorecard. It is essential to drive the ball well around the Gainsborough, as being out of position off the tee will make scoring exceptionally difficult. The highlight is the awe-inspiring 10th, where golfers must play their drive and approach shot over the same lake.
The Constable Course is similarly stunning, but is arguably tighter off the tee, owing to the mature woodland that skirts many fairways. There are several water hazards to be negotiated, and like the Gainsborough, retaining your concentration to the last is important; the closing hole is an exacting par-4, requiring a good drive over a large lake before you attack the plateau green.
Stoke by Nayland's superb golf complex also offers first-class tuition, while the overall package makes it an educated choice for your society or corporate golf outing and is now the site for one of Lee Westwood golf schools'.
Take your inspiration from the renowned Constable and Gainsborough, after whom the courses are named, and use all your artistic creativity to negotiate the great variety of holes at Stoke by Nayland.
