This course is always in good condition. It’s not the longest course but many interesting holes make it more difficult than you can imagine. It’s a classic, you better hit it straight course! I play all over the north west and I’ll play this course a few times a year. I paid £16 on bank holiday Monday for a 3pm tee time. We pretty much had the course to ourselves. Didn’t go into the club house but it looks lovely. Recommend to anybody, first time playing though will be difficult because some holes are that tricky. You’ll enjoy though.

I would love to give this course 5 stars, the condition for the time of year is very good. All the staff are professional and friendly. Now we come to the bad bit, Thursday is ladies day (an antiquated concept nowadays) our tee time placed us behind the lady captains three ball. Sorry to say this ladies but you were slow, slow and slower, a great pity really because, we would, under normal circumstances have been on our second pint long before it started raining.

Played here on Saturday for the 1st time and was an amazing course and in lovely condition. Middle of winter and still the greens and fairways were immaculate and in pristine condition.

All staff and members were very polite and made me feel welcome.

Now requested details about membership enjoyed the course and staff so much.

Anyone thinking should I or look elsewhere just book here and you will not be disappointed.

I spent a very pleasant 3 hours and 45 minutes playing this course today in the blazing sun. I tee'd off at 11:36am and the course was quite quiet, but as I was playing single I did catch a couple of groups up quickly - and to be fair to them they let me play through and were very polite and helpful (especially as it wasn't clear on a couple of early holes which way to go to the next tee for a newbie).

The course is quite flat, so fairly easy on the legs, but is nice and challenging too. There were a couple of blind holes, a deceptive hollow, and a very narrow par 3 that I managed to birdie (my only birdie!).The greens were fast and in great condition, and the hole course played really well.

I would definitely play this course again, even if as a visitor it is £10 more than my usual course Swinton Park.

Some of the Tee placements make hitting the fairways somewhat tight but enjoyable The fairways tend to open out with few doglegs. Also, some of the Greens are guarded by gulleys, trees and water. A very nice course for all types of golfers.

The course conditions were great, fairly forgiving fairways and very well kept greens. The layout is slightly odd, crossing over yourself a few times but doesn't effect play much. Unfortunately, we got stuck behind two slow groups of four so we skipped 2 holes to get ahead and ended up joining a couple of very friendly members for the final few holes. I'll definitely be playing there again and would recommend despite the (hopefully one-off) slow play.

First time I played at ellesmere golf club, found golf course in really good conditions. They rough was really messy and punished wayward shots, bunkers actually had sand in which a surprise from the last courses I've played. I didn't understand the layout of the course playing the 12th to then walk backwards to the 13th is strange.

Overall I really and enjoyed my round and would happily play again, probably play better knowing the course better specially the 17th.

I have played here a couple of times now, and i must say i really enjoy the course everytime i play. The weather wasn't up to much when we played, but that didn't take anything away from the course as it held up well with very wet conditions. This is a course i like playing at and will definitely be returning many times. Stand out holes for me are the par 3 9th which is just a stunning hole and the par 5 17th which is interesting to say the least, you need to play with somebody who knows the course for this hole, or do some research.

No 9th hole, no greens, not allowed to play of fairway if I could see a fairway. Honestly was a waste of money. Probably a good course in summer but we couldn't find the tee loads of times and others on course asked if we knew how to find the tee they couldn't find. Was pointless having a putter in my bag as never had a green to put on. First and last time on this course. Better courses in this area avaliable with a green avaliable
