    Newbold Comyn last April was taken over by a company called Mack Golf. Since then the courses' condition has gradually got better. This year the course has been in the best condition many customers have ever seen. The Club had a record turnout with regards to their annual open, and the course has had a new peak in members. Personally i play all around the country in golf tournaments and play at Newbold regularly. This July was the best i have seen the course and was far better than the others in Warwickshire at the same time. The biggest improvements has been the greens which are now playing to 10 sometimes even 10.5. The changes mad this year has slightly made it more accessible for the mid to high handicappers, however do not be distracted by the beautiful views of Leamington Spa as this is with out a doubt the biggest test of golf in the midlands. A really tough course, If you play well to your handicap around here. You'll do well anywhere.

    As of April 2010 the course will be under the management of a company called Mack Golf. Not sure who they are but they hope to vastly improve this well used but not so well regarded course.

        I am in my second year of membership for this course, and my third of playing here.
        Mack Golf have brought about various improvements since taking on the lease for this club. A lot of previous criticisms regarded the greens. I am pleased to say there has been significant improvement, and presumably expense, in this area. Additionally, a lot of the overgrown areas of the course has been cut back and made visually better. The cart track leading from the 17th to 18th has been widened and bark chipped.
        I am told, and have seen the evidence, that the long par 4 9th is soon to become a longer par 5 by moving the tee back to the 5th tee area, and subsequently shortening the 5th by moving the tee forwards by about 30yards. This change will probably add only about 10yards or so to the 9th, but most high to mid handicappers may now be able to par the 9th.
        Overall, I love this club as a municipal. I have played quite a few and this has all the qualities I like in a course.
        Now all we need are some ball cleaners on tees and some shoe cleaners outside the clubhouse.
        Well done Mack !

    I played the course for the first time in three years on 25/10/2003, having first played it over twenty years ago, and was sorry to see the state of the greens. The dry summer has been hard on golf courses, but the greens looked neglected. The course was much quieter than expected for a Saturday morning. A member told us that many members had left the club in disappointment after the contracting out of maintenance.

    Lovely golf couse which I have been playing on and off for about twenty years. But this year the greens have been the worst I have ever seen them.What is happening and who is responsible for this state of affairs?
    One of the Town's greatest facilities seems to be being let to go to ruin.
    Please Geoff isn't it time that letters should be exchanged in the Courier?

    I find the front nine a very challenging set of nine holes, especially for the higher handicapper. The first hole could be accused of being easy until you stand on the tee and find a large tree in your path, to avoid it is more difficult than it seems. The 5th hole is a par 3 and a straight shot is essential with a steep slope to the left and a slice would lead to out of bounds. A challenging par 5 follows, which on a wet day can be very difficult.
    The back nine is somewhat flatter than the front, with the holes being longer and more trees to contend with. They have recently put new water hazards on the back nine and if you get distance by hitting and using the role, then some of you may be dropping a few points.
    Overall I enjoy this course as it offers people like me a challenge without breaking the bank and they do keep the course in good order.

    A challenging opening 9 holes and cracking views across the Leamington and Warwickshire countryside make Newbold Comyn one of the best municipals in the area. Trouble awaits anyone who can't keep the ball straight off the tee and the punishment can be unforgiving. Fairways and greens are extremely well kept, making the course a pleasure to play. Exceptional value and great fun!

    I would not argue with Mr Heyville's statement that their are few hazards on the fairways, the addition of which would enhance the course, but his comment about the fairways being wide is misleading. They are no wider, probably less, than most courses, and on either side of practically every fairway is either a steep slope, dense tree areas or out of bounds, on both the front and back nine. As a result if you are not a straight hitter (consistently) then this course is a challenge to play to your handicap (and remember to take a few spare balls!)
