Great two days of golf
Nov 2021 • Couples
Excellent games of golf at Wyboston Lakes, from the friendly and helpful pro shop to the well conditioned golf course, we had a great time over our two day stay
The course was well laid out and yes there is a lot of water but it’s not too overpowering and sets a good standard. Well drained course and was able to use a buggy
Really enjoyed the two games and would come again

Ollie in the restaurant was fantastic, lots of tables to tend to and made sure the food was out in a timely fashion and with a smile.
Very accommodating with our specific requests so deserves the recognition - made the overall experience more enjoyable!

Maybe the best course in terms of condition and enjoyment/fairness/challenge we had ever played.
Jul 2021
Visited on Sunday 11th July 2021 As part of a 2 day, 1 Night Bed, Dinner & Breakfast with 2 round Golf Weekend. Stayed at the Willows Training Centre rather than the main complex as it was about £40 a night cheaper with the same terms. Initially arriving for a tee time before checking in we found the pro shop helpful and teed off in good spirits. The course meanders around a lake that has an Aqua Park and various water sports taking place on it which are disturbing in terms of noise but not excessively so and runs for a few holes next to the River Ouse. The holes each had an excellent image and pro top next to the tee boxes. The holes were challenging bit picturesque including the 119 Yard Par 3 that nearly killed my playing partner who took an 11 inc 4 lost balls! Not a lot you can do but there were a lot of geese and goose excrement on some of the holes/greens. At the end of our first round, our conclusion was that this was maybe the best course in terms of condition and enjoyment/fairness/challenge we had ever played. Nice atmosphere too, as not too posh. Check-in was simple enough at the WIllows training centre and the rooms were well appointed in a Travelodge/Premier Inn style which was good enough for us. The on-site restaurant was canteen style/carvery in the evening and the offering excellent, including a bar showing the England Euro Final. The next day breakfast was served in a similar style and in our second round we took out a buggy which at £25 was the standard fee for a buggy at other courses. No great elevation changes but makes any second full round on the second day easier. Would happily come back here again and would recommend to anyone thinking of going for a Golf weekend.

The land that time forgot
Jul 2021 • Business
Had the great pleasure of stopping at the willows training centre. I have shoved in a block the rear of the complex. The walk to the room felt like the green mile walking through several doors and corridors. The flooring in my block felt like the carpets were laid on bare soil, I nearly fell into a few pot holes. The room itself was dated, it was dirty and smelt stale. The bathroom also smelt so bad I couldnt stay in there. I later found dried blood on the tiles?!? By the smell if I looked further I might have found a body! Most of the room was covered in a shiney unknown gunk, the windows were also full of mould and condensation. Near the end of the week due to the lack of sleep from the shockingly thin pillows I nearly broke down be aware of the 500 block!

Played our first round just after 1300. Play was slow for the first few holes but then picked up pace. Course is in ok condition, fairways are nice and the tee boxes are average but most greens are terrible. The course has so much potential and is a challenge. The tee boxes offer a pro tip on how to play the holes which is a welcome touch.
I know it cant be helped but the course is littered in duck droppings so take a spare towel so yo can clean your ball.
Hotel rooms were poor. Found hairs in the bath and sink in one room and ants in the other. Think of pontins style rooms when you book here. Not sure how it was covid cleaned when ants and dirt was found (please see pics).

Dinner and breakfast was a buffet style and no complaints from us.

Alcohol is pricey costing £5 a pint.

If you are looking for a cheap no frills get away then this is your place to go

Dog hating Company

Stopped at Wyboston Lakes today to charge the Tesla and gave a meal as we gave heard it’s a lovely place.

Just as we got to the Waterfront Restaurant we was greeted to a security guard telling us we had to leave the site as we had our 10 year old Labrador with us.

Found this place totally unfriendly and will definitely never return here ever again.

A bonus we are at a restaurant within a quarter of a Mile away, dog in tow, so it’s Wyboston that lost out. Glad a company can afford to turn down business in these times.

Course is terrible, looks like the greens haven't been touched by green staff in whole of lockdown, apparently only one greenkeeper is working while the rest are furloughed,??? Sure that's not how the system is supposed to work.

I've played this course many times and this has got to be the worst! The tees are in a terrible state there are broken trees on the fairways and greens are atrocious. Even the breakfast was cold!

Golf Course in very poor condition
Aug 2020
Played the golf course a couple of weeks ago and it was in very poor condition. The tees were terrible and the greens we not a lot better. Looks like there has been little work done during the Covid shutdown and they have a job on now to pull it round. A real shame as we have many great memories of playing this course over the last 35 years.
