I was surprised by Bath GC. I had expected a mature, well maintained, even manicured, parkland course. What I played was a very ordinary layout with distinctly agricultural fairways and very lumpy greens.
The par 3s are all good, the 3rd is a good par 4 despite the blind drive, the long par 4 5th is a challenge, and I liked the par 5 15th. The 17th is a quirky short par 4, and the finishing par 4 18th is one of those holes which will be a lot easier the second time that you play it. None of them were in good enough condition, though.
The saving grace here is the position on a hillside high above Bath. There are tremendous views over the outskirts of the city from the 3rd and 4th.
A box ticked, I doubt if we will return.
