Review of the Month November 2019 – Queenwood
When I was younger I used to drive past Queenwood a lot as it is right opposite Foxhills Golf Club, where I was a member for a few years. I always used to look out of the window and tell myself that one day I would be inside the metal gates, and play the Augusta of England that is Queenwood Golf Club. On Monday my dream became a reality.
Everything about the place oozes class and is quite truly sensational. I can’t stress to you enough how great the Queenwood experience is. They treat you like royalty, the range balls are free and all Titleist Pro V1s and the course is as pure as they come. The tee boxes are maintained to perfection, the greens are unreal with sub air systems, which very very few courses in England have. The bunkers are beautifully designed and the fairways are lined to perfection. The whole course is just immaculate.
My favourite holes are the par five 1st, an average length hole which has a great looking approach shot into the green. The par four 5th is also a great risk and reward hole. A dogleg left with water on the right. The further left you take it the less you have in but then there's more tree and bush that you have to try and get over.
The back nine has two of my favourite holes on the course. 10 and 16 are both great par fours for similar reasons. The 10th is a downhill drive with the great clubhouse in the background and a dogleg to the right. The second shot goes over water onto an undulating green. The 16th is a short par four with water just short of the green and one of the most ridiculous greens you’ll ever play. The 18th is also a great finishing hole, a par five and hitting towards the great clubhouse.
Overall, I have to give Queenwood a 6-ball rating. The course is unbelievable and everything is amazingly kept. The whole place is magical and in the summer it is truly an unreal place. Was a treat to play and will definitely be playing it many more times!
