Difficult to dislike Batchworth Park as there is plenty of variation and a pleasant enough place to play golf (if you can get on, members and guests only). First couple of holes are bit ordinary but from then on a decent test. Only real problem for me is why do all the greens have to be so big? I know this is a Thomas course so it is expected but there are 17 gigantic greens which cant all be necessary. The first par 3 is short (about 125) but the green must be 40 yards wide and 30 yards deep – just didn’t get that really. Did I hit the green? of course not, did I get my par? nope… well there you have it.Enjoyed the course but may leave it a while before returning though – gets an average rating from me.
