A wet , but enjoyable day at Helsby.
Course in good condition excepting closed 3rd& 4th holes , that were waterlogged.
Some forgiving wide fairways with challenging Par 3’s, the pleasant countryside and green landscape of Cheshire added to what was an enjoyable day’s Golf as we move into Autumn.
Will be back to play this quiet well tended course. Hope the bar is open at the end of the round next time .

The course is in amazing condition

The course is really well looked after and was an absolute bargain as a hot deal. Would definitely play again. The staff and members were also very welcoming in the clubhouse, which is not always the case with visitors.

Value for money, what ever the cost or conditions

As my colleagues said, even though we played the course on a reduced rate we would paid the full rate, which compared with other courses we have played recently of a similar cost represents excellent value for money.
Whilst we were waiting for our tee time there was thunder and lightning resulting in a heavy downpour, which though slowing the greens down slightly were still fast due to them drying out so well.
The only negatives were that some of the fairway grass was a bit long, that you could be virtually on top of your ball, yet not be able to see it, though they did have the tractor mower out cutting the fairway grass back to more manageable levels, and that a couple of tees/greens are too close to each other, but then that is how the course has been laid out for x number of years: if it's not broken why fix it.

Enjoyable round

Played here for the first time with two colleagues. We all enjoyed the course and for what we paid it was an absolute bargain. I'll most certainly be booking another round soon!

New Favourite Course

Played here today for the first time and considering it rained for hours before the course held up so well - Greens were fast but in good condition. Think this is my new favourite course

Great value

Great value course, well laid out and well kept! Only issue was draining holes in the green needed rolling as a couple of greens were incredibly bobbly Which was a shame - definitely worth a visit though!!

Great course

Really pleasant reception from the pro before the round and in the bar afterwards. Enjoyed the course layout which gives you a chance as a high handicapper . The greens were true and fast. Will definitely return.

Superb Greens

Superb greens. A shame the course is shortened from mid-october. I was hoping it would still be a relatively full length course at this time of year but don’t let this put you off. Very wet in places but the fairways were pretty dry overall. I will be back in the sunnier months to play this course at its best!
