New in 2015
As of March 2015, Blacknest will offer coarse fishing in it's beautiful and peaceful surroundings. Our ponds are in a secluded part of the golf course and the whole area is private so anglers can enjoy the sport without interruptions from traffic, walkers, dogs etc. The fishing is currently restricted to the South Pond which is accessed via the track parallel to the golf driving range. Tickets can be purchased from Reception/Golf Pro’s Shop.
The ponds existed when the golf course opened over 20 years ago. Subsequently, they were stocked but have hardly been fished since. Fishing over the last couple of months has revealed a good head of silver fish but mainly Carp. A recent netting exercise has confirmed the healthy state of the fish and that they are breeding well.
Blacknest have a variety of species in the ponds, including the following:
- Common Carp
- Ghost Carp
- Crucian Carp
- Mirror Carp
- Roach and many more...
