  I should like to record my appreciation to Dave Constable and his greenkeepers for all thier hard work in bringing the course back to its original great condition. They should be congradulated by every one who plays here,members and societies alike. well done boys, the beer is on me.

  The badgers have really destroyed parts of the golf course which really is a shame. Yes, you do need to be extremely fit to walk it but its generally a good golfing test. The pricing seems fair

  I have been a member of Austin Lodge for nine years now. Over the years there has been a persistent problem with Badgers, usually only affecting one or two areas of the course. this year however the food source for them was abundant largely due to clement weather conditions, they managed to destroy large areas all over the course. For the greens staff coming into this on a daily basis it must have been soul destroying as the course before this was playing at its best, with the greens being in tip top condition. My understanding is that after two meetings with Natural England nothing can be done to remove the badgers. I have been reliably informed that the only option left is to eradicate the grubs. Pentland golf have assured myself and all members that next spring they will be using a legal chemical to eliminate the grubs and hopefully the problem will not arise again.

  Blimey where do I start? I've played Austin Lodge ever since it opened and have always found it to be a good test of golf and due to the excellent drainage it plays better in the winter than in the summer when it tends to play fairly short. I'd not played there for a couple of years, so I booked up to play on 05/11/09, Six of us turned up on the day two of us having driven 40 miles to get there. After we had all payed our money the youngster behind the desk said "oh by the way we're doing some green maintanence today but it should'nt affect you as you're going out early" So we tee'd of on the first startied walking down the hill only to find that the hole was almost devoid of grass, it seemed to be of a uniform depth so we came to the conclusion they must be getting rid of some diseased grass although it did seem a bit strange that they would be seeding in November. This pattern continued up till the par 3 7th when we caught up with the lads hollow coring the greens, this machine left the biggest holes in a green that I have ever seen and the fact that they did not roll the green afterwards only added to our frustration. From then on every hole we played had been hollow cored and left unrolled, add to this the grass that had been ripped up on most of the other holes and you can see why we were ever so slightly peeved. After finishing the round we naturally headed off to the clubhouse to complain about the amount of work that was going on and the fact that they said it would'nt affect us. To our suprise they pointed to the smallest notice in the world and said "well we have got a notice up about it". "What about the work your doing in the rough and on the fairways" I asked " oh thats not us we have a bit of a badger problem. This really got my goat as I had only booked the round two days previous and they have obviously had the problem for quite some time and the fact that they couldn't be bothered to tell me about the green work or the badgers when I booked just about made my day (not). So be warned if you play there in the near future you'll have to use a tennis ball on the greens or run the risk of loosing your ball down a hole and be prepared to fall down the holes the badgers have dug. If the badger problem persists they are in danger of loosing the course.

  A great variation of holes makes this a great course. When they say it's built over 3 valleys they are not kidding. You either have to be very fit or, better still, in a buggy as there are a lot of ups and downs to travel. There is a little water on the 15th fairway and protecting the 18th green which is also overlooked by the club house. We have had several golf society days (as well as individual days) playing at Austin Lodge and have never been disappointed with the reception or the course.

Secluded rolling countryside with lakes. 18 holes, 6575 yards Yellow Tees, 7026 yards White Tees. S.S.S. 73. Practice ground.
