Great course for a municipal

Good course layout. A bit wet in places and the greens could do with more work. Being a municipal, you get a lot of first time golfers who have no clue about course etiquette or rules of play. Other than that, good value for money and worth playing in decent weather.

To be expected

Course was to be expected..very boggy on front 9, most greens have suffered with heavy traffic and wet weather.
Could have done with more g.u.r. markings or even preferred lies to help course and players.
150 yard distance markers need painting, yellow.
Overall its decent value for the money

Decent days golf

The third to the 9th are longer and tougher than first nine. What makes this more difficult is they are not as well maintained. These holes are across the road from the rest of course and clubhouse. This could be remedied by green keepers cutting fairway and semi rough. The play on these holes were notably slower. . Maintaining these would improve play. The fairways for the rest of course are in good condition. Greens were ok but on the slow side.

Overall the course was in good condition.

The bunkers need more sand.

For a municipal course it was excellent.

Enjoyed the course, there where a few areas around the course with ground water , but not on the greens, we where warned about a sink hole when we arrived at the reception, so we where told well in advance , I hope Blackpool council don't sell half the course, which there hoping to do to make a quick buck , my local course and would recommend it .

Good course

Nice easy course wide fairways and good greens
The only problem I had having not played the course before was no map on the scorecard and no sign to get from green 2 to 3rd tee which was over the road. Other than that was a good game

Good Forgiving course for round with friends

Good course for a knock around with friends, I like this course for its layout and prices, it's also fairly easy if your out of practice. I dislike this course for its brown/dead grass patches on the fairway and a couple of the greens, I don't think it would take much to make this course a great one.

Golf Now Booking

I regularly use Golf Now to book courses in the area and find it a very good way of experiencing the beautiful golf courses around Lancashire.
I booked Stanley Park for 21/2/20 but unfortunately the extreme weather has closed the course.
This has happened before when I booked at North Shore on new years day. At North Shore the staff couldnt have been more helpful and re-arranged an alternative tee off when the conditions had improved.
My experience of Stanley Park? "Go contact Golf Now and sort it out yourself."
Suffice to say Golf Now will not refund for closed courses on the day of play when its a "hot deal", even though £12 is the standard winter green fee at this course.
I am disappointed that neither Golf Now or Stanley Park will take the time, courtesy and effort to re-arrange or refund the green fee, even though they are more than happy to take the money on a day when they have closed their course.
I would advise readers not to use Golf Now to book Stanley Park and I would advise Stanley Park to have a better attitude towards paying customers as my experience was poor and will be shared.
I use Golf Now for convenience not cost as they dont get special rates, in fact its typically more expensive once booking fee is added.
So in summary please dont be greedy, if a course is unplayable then refund the customer, its the right thing to do.

Great value. Not too busy and nice layout. Course is municipal and as such is not in perfect condition as you would expect. Good enough for my standard though. Overall great value.
