BP

Average course overall it is very slow play and when i say slow i mean ques at every tee box, there is no dress code and there is people jogging and walking dogs as your playing, hardly any sign posts up to direct you to the holes, greens arent the best. Ok for price but plenty of courses for similar prices in and around Liverpool which i will sticking too in future.

Nice course but slow pace of play

Nice course, great layout and well kept for a municipal. Great value for money.

Only down side is very slow pace of play and groups in front do not let individual players play through.

The course were nice apart from sand bunkers and got stuck behind a 4 balls game what we’re very slow and there were also a 3 ball game behind them so only ended up doing the front holes what were disappointing I can go round in 3 hours and took a hour and half to do 4 holes what I think is really bad but not the courses fault as I go there 2-3 times a year and never had that problem before

Bowring - a lovely municipal that could be anazing

I’ve played this course several times as it is the nearest course to my home but I have never joined it. There are some really lovely holes but then four par fours under or just over 300yds, which in today’s world is just not long enough, especially as there are no hazards. The trees are fabulous and the greens are usually above average. Sadly being a municipal you get players who don’t repair pitch marks and I have seen damaged greens from local idiots riding bikes over them, when the course has been closed. But for the price it is still good value and there are a couple of truly lovely golf holes .
It’s also one of the oldest municipals in the country.

Great value for a round

- Well cut fairways
- Forgiving layout
- No warm up area or pitch and putt
- No drinks, food or pencils in reception
- Tee boxes are worn
- Greens very hard
- Bunkers poorly maintained

Worth it for £12 though.

Overbooked

AVOID! The most overbooked course I've ever played. The pace of play was exceptionally slow, making the course unplayable.

It is what it is

Ground a greens in good condition and staff are great.
No facilities not even a toilet due to COVID.
As I finished two lads eating a fish supper on the first tee
As I started two ball - one with full Everton kit on
Course was bumper to bumper - lots of four balls with learners playing
If you want to have a practice and don’t want to use the driving range it’s fine. Just would avoid sunny days and weekends - every man and his dog picks up a set of clubs and heads there
