We played the Bracken course in a National Competition this week and it was fantastic. The course was in great condition and the practice facilities were outstanding. The pro shop was well stocked and staff were very friendly. Was our first trip to Woodhall Spa and we are certainly keen to come back and try the Hotchkin course.

4 of us played this course (Hotchin) during a tour of Lincolnshire and this was the highlight of the trip. Lived up to it's billing as one of the best courses in the world. Fantastic scenery, great greens and a very large number of punishing bunkers. Course was in great nick and the starter ensures that there are no delays... More

We stayed at the Golf Hotel in central Woodhall Spa for the annual 1940s celebratory weekend in July and it was wonderful with people dressing up in the period clothing and styles and entering into the spirit of wartime Britain. The attractions were too numerous to mention, but it is the most fun of a weekend for all the family.... More

My son and his bride-to-be booked here for their wedding reception. Having visited twice before the event, I had every confidence in their ability to deliver, and I was not disappointed. The place was spacious and clean, the food was excellent and the staff were all polite and helpful. The well kept grass area outside was good for those just... More

We found the course very enjoyable but several things made us think the people were not very friendly:- The restaurant staff were surly and their first interaction was to tell us that they had stopped serving hot food. The cold food was not that great to be honest - tuna sandwiches that were fairly tasteless. The four ball in front... More

What a superb track this is. Deservedly in the top ten of british isles courses. Cracking location as well and all... More

What a place. From start to finish it was excellent! The greeting in the clubhouse was nice, not over friendly but nice. They stock some quality equipment also. We had the Woodall breakfast, and it was superb. £6.95 for a delicious breakfast, including 2 sausage, 2 bacon, black pudding, egg, tea and toast. Then the golf course (the Hotchkin) -... More

40 of us played here again 3 times , twice on the Hodgkin and once on the Bracken. Hodgkin is just world class , greens even in April in good condition. Bracken is good course and again greens were good. Worth a visit.

Excellent golf as ever combined with a lovely hotel. I went in a group of 8 to celebrate my 50th birthday. We all enjoyed the golf, even the cavernous bunkers on the hotchkin and upturned saucer green on the bracken!
