i can manage on the course but i struggled to to get the ball to go high in the air probably partly cos i was faded AF the night before. Almost left my phone and wallet in the bag. i just dont understand surely you can lie and say you got a hole in 1

we wanted to try a game of golf and this was ideally, had a lovely couple of hours and a cup of tea afterwards, staff brilliant and helpful, no equipment needed as all hired at a very respectable cost. Will certainly use again

What a great par 3 course this is, whether you are a seasoned golfer (great for short-game practice) or a beginner (wanting to play on a 'proper' golf course), Cambridge Lakes certainly suits everyone. Myself, my son (14 years of age) and his friend played a few rounds at this delightful course, with friendly staff to ensure your visit is... More

A nice 9 hole par three course close to the centre of Cambridge. Well maintained, decent greens for the type of course. Relaxed on dress code etc. The longest hole is 126 yards so a nice spot for some pitch and putt.

Bob Barnes hosted our first ever FIG at his excellent par 3, 9 hole course. It is in almost perfect condition, the greens playing fast and true. We had 21 juniors playing in 7 teams, followed by 36 adults including about 9 disabled players truly integrated into the 9 teams. A number of players commented on what a lovely corner... More

I've been to the Lakes a few times (probably twice a week over the summer for four years) and it's fantastic. Great location, wonderfully kept grass and some challenge in the holes. As with all pay-and-play pitch and putt courses, there are occasionally some people less familiar with golf etiquette around, but you get past that pretty quickly. A joy.

It does exactly what it says on the tin. It claims to be a 9 hole par 3 and that is what you get. The greens are massivly better than most other courses in the area and the bunkers properly maintained, with practice greens, sand bunkers and driving net. It is good for beginners, experts and everyone between. There is... More

Took our money without mentioning there was a 45 minute queue for the first tee. No refunds available only a voucher to play at a later date. Staff very surly. No better when we actually got on the course. Mostly gangs of teenagers messing about. Wouldn't allow us through, nearly hit by a ball with no shout of fore or... More
