Lost ball on 1st hole. Went a few feet off the "fairway" and ended up in grass over 8" long. Judging by the grass cuttings, it may have been mowed in the last month. £9 for 2 of us. I'd rather blow it in the arcade. At times it resembled a ploughed field.

I have been going here for years (20+), but this year I was hugely disappointed by the state of the course. The 'rough' was more akin to a farmers field, and if you hit into it, it's 50/50 whether you're going to find your ball. (bear in mind that this is 'family' golf, so this happens a lot) only one course now operational of the 2 pitch and putt courses also. General lack of attention all around.

A real shame.as the course is a huge part of the Sandown holiday experience (at least to me) and I hold some good memories. Hope it gets sorted out considering the long standing history of the place.

You can chose from several courses. There is an easier course or a harder course. It is a great value for money.

Browns provides 3 options, short & long putting as well as pitch and putt.

We played pitch and putt, the non golfers found it extremely difficult and the kids found it impossible as the grass was very long and unforgiving, even Tiger would have struggled to move the ball. Staff really should have warned us how difficult it would be for the kids.

The putting courses would be more appropriate for non golfers and would provide much more fun than the pitch and putt.
