We played at Enmoor Park on the third day of our Somerset trip, noting that it was ranked 4 in the county – this rating is well deserved, I think its arbitrary whether it should be at 3 but it certainly didn’t disappoint.
The whole experience from the point of arrival, when we were extremely well looked after by the club secretary to our experience of the course, it was a thoroughly pleasurable experience.
The course itself is more traditional parkland style golf and is played to the backdrop of the Quantocks. As a result the course is very scenic, although be warned there are one or two climbs to negotiate, but these shouldn’t deter you from playing here whatsoever.
Notable holes include a couple of shortish dogleg par 4’s that cross water in front of the green, a short downhill par 3 and the final hole is a rolling downhill par 5 that offers a clear birdie opportunity. The course is well designed in that the shorter holes had generally narrower fairways whereas the longer holes gave you room to unleash the driver. We found the fairways and greens to be in excellent condition although there was probably room for a little improvement around one or two of the tees. That said, it’s distinctly possible to make a score here as was demonstrated by the generally good scoring amongst the group
All in all a lovely inland course that should merit a visit when in the county.
Our rating is between 4 and 5
