  • Gave this course a try this weekend and unfortunately have to say that it was quite dissappointing. The course isn’t well looked after; the fairways are poorly kept, the tee boxes are in truly awful c...  more »
  • Reasonable course for a cheap round. There are limited clubhouse facilities and the course is quite short even off the whites. I'm a single figure handicapper and it was long iron/driver and wedge to ...  more »

  • This is quite a good fun course and like people say, its tricky. All holes are very different and so makes for compelling rounds. It's par 68 and not a long course, but there are lots of trees that obscures or makes the fairways quite narrow so requires accuracy and good course management. The grasses are kept fairly well but don't expect any excellent standard here, greens are normally damaged by pitch marks but the course is very much playable. For the price (under £20 depending on whether it is peak) is reasonable especially as buggies can be booked for £12 during off peak times.
  • It's unbelievable to me that this goat track has a 4 star Google rating. I have probably played hundreds of courses and Lee Valley is one of the worst I have ever played. I don't think the £18.50 green fees are even good value - for an extra £5 or so you could play on a real golf course that is properly maintained and laid out. Lee Valley has tees that I have not seen before, the grass is 3 inches long, except for the parts that are bare dirt. It's actually pretty difficult to figure out where to tee up. The greens don't have much undulation and when I visited didn't seem to have been cut for about 10 days. The grass was very furry (except on the many bare patches) and you just had to hit the ball very hard and straight at the hole. The course seems to be trying to cater to beginners and the very casual golfer but the design isn't really appropriate for that as the first 13 holes or so are extremely tight and need irons off the tee and a lot of accuracy. The layout makes no sense, there are some mickey mouse 80 yard par 3 holes and then they throw in a 205 yard par 3 with a blind tee shot. London has a lot of good golf courses that are not too expensive. Lee Valley is just cheap and nasty. It's hard to see what they are spending all the green fees on as it certainly isn't mowing, maintenance, providing sand for the bunkers etc.
