Bit disappointed after reading the reviews; played May 2012; fairways hadn't been cut (difficult to tell what was fairway and what wasn't), and although I guess this was due to recent rain, obviously a reflection on how wet the course gets; no course guide in pro-shop; course layout seemed a bit jumbled with few standout holes; the aforementioned 16th is good but I thought the best hole was the par 4 12th, an excellant hole.

Fulford Heath is an excellent course and ranks favourably to Fulford in Yorkshire. You will note that Fulford in York is my favourite and ranks with two other Great courses that I've played, Royal Melbourne in Australia and Cypress Pines in the U.S.A. Take a bow Fulford Heath as I will return for more of the excellent golfing your course has to offer. Cheers Ian
The whole course is outstanding! The greens are like glass and you need to stay on the fairway. Fulford Heath has also hosted some top events (pro & amateur).

Certainly an enjoyable course worth playing, but second in Worcestershire? I wouldn't have placed it ahead of Kidderminster, Moseley, Stourbridge or King's Norton.
At just under 6300 yards, this isnít a long course, but donít let that deceive you - this is a good test of golf. The key here is scoring well on the early holes where there are birdie opportunities. Start badly and itís very difficult to get your round back to looking respectable. The stand-out hole has got to be the 16th, a 166 yard par 3 surrounded by trees where the tee shot is hit over a lake to a raised green, which slopes wickedly. In all honesty, the water is more of a visual feature and shouldnít come into play for anyone other than a novice - take my advice when you get to the green though and just take a second to admire the spectacular view back over the water to the tee before you putt! A friendly welcome is guaranteed and a pleasant afternoon can be spent in the clubhouse, overlooking the 18th green and infamous "Captainís Bunker".
