Houghwood GC 11/10/18

The course was in fantastic condition considering the time of year and recent weather. The bunkers were well sanded and the course was being tended to throughout our round, something you don’t really see this time of year. The course itself played really well,especially with some tricky holes playing long into a strong wind. The greens too were up to a good standard with the recent rain we’ve had,and the fact that it’s early October.I would definitely play there again.

Beautiful day beautiful course!

What a day for golf - weather excellent with bright sunshine and a bit breezy!

Course was in fabulous condition even if greens had been tined and sanded they still ran fast and true. Groundstaff were out in force on mowers and the course looked good enough for an Open venue.

Would definitely recommend but get a buggy!

Great course

Great golf course, variation of holes is good and definitely some holes for all standards, from long par 5’s to some quality testing par 3’s.

I would recommend getting a buggy though as I although it’s equally as long as other courses I’ve played some of the hills on the course are very steep, save your energy for your shots not the walk

What a challenge!

Couldn't have picked a tougher day to play - the wind was unbelievable, windiest conditions I've ever played in (40mph+). With the course location and wind direction there was no respite and the 11th and 12th were almost unplayable.

But that apart the course was in great condition and the set-up was fair, the rough wasn't too punishing and the greens were really good.

Despite all this managed 98 (24 handicap) net +3!! Delighted with that score as I've played here in perfect conditions and scored much worse. Couldn't fault the day.

Hooray Houghwood

Nice layout with a good variety of holes. Course in good condition. Very hilly and for a senior player it might be better to hire a buggy. Overall a good test but enjoyable with good views towards Merseyside and North Wales. Pro shop guy was friendly and helpful. Very impressive Club House too.

Challenging course.

Challenging course , greens were a little slow with the rain we had the previous evening.

A very hilly course so plenty of different lies for approach shots so a good challenge for all handicaps.

A buggy is recommended as says very hilly only downside is you have to stay to the track or buggy cuts out so does lead to walking back and forth for your club selection.

Brilliant

This course is a brilliant inland parkland course. Each hole is different and interesting. You won't find many flat lying positions on this course which is my kind of course. A buggy is recommended if you don't have an electric trolley as there are some walks between tees but not to the extent it is an issue. A teriffic course!

Houghwood practice day

First three fairways/holes where a bit wet,but after that the course was great,I would advise to get a golf buggy {£15 very reasonable} as it is quite hilly especially when playing holes 11,12,13, greens were in very good considering the wet weather that has been around the last two weeks.

Score 99 playing off 19 handicap.

Good course

Usually really like this place, but today got stuck behind two 4 balls, one which kindly let us through, the other just held us up for 12 holes , obviously members as they were playing off white tees! Totally ignorant of every one around them so beware!!!!

Also very disappointed in the condition of the greens as , how can you charge full green fees when they have just been holatised?

Wont be back here for a while thats for certain!
