Bunkers were good too, Faiways not bad either congratulations to all the ground staff you are doing an excellent job..

I've played golf at Poult Wood on three occasions now. The course is set in beautiful countryside and is well marked for those like me who did not always know where the next tee was. Several of the par 4 holes are unusually short, but nevertheless quite tricky. The fairways and greens were in good condition in spite of the fact that it had rained very heavily the previous day.
The clubhouse has a pro shop and a nice upstairs bar and terrace. I didn't have anything to eat, but the food coming out of the kitchen looked good.
I'd recommend this course to all but expert golfers who might find it rather undemanding.

We arrived at poult wood just before 1pm for Sunday carvery lunch
There is ample free car parking with easy access to the restaurant which is on the first floor but has lift access if required
The staff are friendly helpful and efficient
We ordered our drinks which were delivered to our table
We went to the carvery and were served our meal there were several genrerous slices of lovely tender and succulent meat roast potatoes and Yorkshire pudding nicely cooked wide variety of vegetables and most of all the food was hot
The tables were nicely laid with plenty of comfortable room in warm surroundings
The service was very good and the friendly waitress came several times to see if we needed anything which we thought was good
The used dishes were collected and the dessert menu which was a good variation was brought for us to look at
We made our choices and duly ordered from the menu
The apple crumble was delicious.
We followed this with tea and coffee
We weren't rushed in any way
When we had finished I paid the bill and thought that £99 for the excellent service tasty food and including the price of the drinks for six people was excellent value for money far better all round from the visit we made last week to hadlow Manor Hotel and most of all we were made to feel welcome
Thank you for a lovely day from us all

I have played this course for many years and each year it gets better. Not the toughest course if your driving is going well but a course that requires you to use all the clubs in the bag. Only gripe is that the 17th tee is very frequently on mats. Not so at the current.

The course is currently in excellent condition plenty of staff working on the course, proper sand in the bunkers and short cut fast fairways and greens. Congratulations to the ground staff. As for someones comment about being overpriced as a senior I paid £18:50 on a Friday 08:00 hours tee off. For the very senior seniors or those with a bit of a limp there are no big hills to worry about.
