Real Friendly Place

Always enjoy visiting Mile End as it is such a friendly place to go. Chilly day at this time of year so the warm up balls on the driving range were a great help. Obviously conditions are not going to be as good as during the middle of the Summer so i have rated relative to other courses I have played this Winter and Mile End stands up well.Nice bit of food in the clubhouse afterwards finished off a great value day.

Mile End, Day 2

Mile End is an enjoyable course with a few interesting holes. At the time of playing, the course was very wet and a number of bunkers had been designated as GUR. As already stated in previous review responses, the club have had issues with the greens which need more work and TLC.

I have to say I wasn't exactly overwhelmed with this golf course. The greens were in very poor condition, bunkers were full of water after the overnight downpour, no drainage at all. The buggy we hired was not fully charged and consequently broke down on the 12th hole, we were refunded the money somewhat begrudgingly. Apparently we should have phoned the pro shop to come out and replace it, like why would we have the phone number with us in the first place and never mind the waiting time. Just charge the damn thing properly in the first place. The staff weren't overly friendly, no one attending the bar, ring the bell every time you want service. All in all very disappointing hence the poor score. I wont be in a hurry to attend again.

A response from Mile End Golf Course

Thanks for your review. Unfortunately we, along with many other golf courses, have experienced extremes of weather in the last week or so. With the torrential nature of some of these storms not even the best drainage systems can could have coped so i think consideration has to be given to this. With regards to our greens we do have a number of areas on a some greens that are undergoing remedial work. This is from work that is being carried out to remove unwanted species from the turf. We accept that this is not visually ideal, but you would have found that pin positions will have always been on the better areas of these few greens. I am sorry about the situation with the buggy and this is obviously something that should not happen so will be investigating. It is our normal procedure to take out a replacement buggy in the event of any type of failure (these things do sometimes unfortunately happen for mechanical reasons - it may not have even been a charging issue). Our shop phone number is on our scorecards. We have an extremely good reputation as being a modern, friendly club so it is unfortunate that you have seen this otherwise. We do have a bell on the bar which means our staff can carry out other duties yet still be available to serve when required. I am sorry if you feel this is inadequate but usually serves us, and our other customers, well. Thank you again for visiting Mile End.

Another days rain on our 2nd day of our weekends play in Oswestry, and unfortunately I didn't think the course stood up well to the weather. Nothing the staff could do about that I suppose. Plenty of bunkers were declared GUR, some greens were diseased in places, and the course had a decided uneven bounce/run on may shots.

However, I enjoyed playing the course and feel with a bit of work could be a real gem

Thanks for your review. Unfortunately we, along with many other golf courses, have experienced extremes of weather in the last week or so. It was felt better to declare bunkers as GUR wherever suitable given that there was no time for our greenstaff to repair the damage caused by the torrential rain. With regards to our greens we do have a number of areas on a some greens that are undergoing remedial work. This is not actual disease, rather it is "scarring" from work that is being carried out to remove unwanted species from the turf. We accept that this is not visually ideal, but you would have found that pin positions will have always been on the better areas of any of these few greens. We are not sure what you mean about the uneven bounce/run comment but hope that in all other respects you enjoyed your visit to Mile End.

No two holes are the same and the greens are superb, very flat and true. There are some very unusual holes, were a bit of imagination is needed and working the ball is an advantage. Very well maintained, people in shop and bar very friendly and overall a great experience.

I joined Mile End 4 years ago after many years at Llanymynech which is in Montgomeryshire.
At Mile End Members staff & owners have made me most welcome & I would recommend the course to anyone who wishes to visit or join. The Seniors Section are a great crowd.
The course is great with the many bunkers ensuring that no hole is too easy.
