Unfortunately we played on captains day behind a three ball on two occasions they could have let us play through but it never happened. It took myself and partner four and a half hours to get round, The course was in better condition than the last time we played due to the rain we had the previous week a few greens could be better but I think it is due to the weather.Will definitely play again.
car park was full, even cars parked on the grass. Course played very well EXCEPT oned thing. The greens were the WORST i have played on in the last ten years. Apart from that i would have given a 5 star rating but until greens are sorted I will not be back. So disappointed that I could not trust a two foot putt to go straight that we basically had a two putt gimme as sonn as we were on the green. Oh well. Hope it gets sorted by next year
arrived early and allowed to play. Fairways very hard due to the recent hot weather and no rain. Greens were in really poor condition, not that different from the fairways. Very bare and bumpy in need of some serious attention. Would not play here again, £10.00 would be too much. P.A.Jones.
Room for improvement
Played a few months ago for the first time and gave up in the rain as the course, especially the greens were waterlogged. Today weather conditions were perfect The greens including the practice green were appalling. Lots of bald patches covered in moss, very uneven and the golf ball bobbling off it's line. The staff are very friendly and a nice clubhouse the price was a twilight offer at a reasonable £12.50, however I would rather pay a little more for a a better quality game. I will return if the some effort is made to improve the the course especially the greens.
Greens were full of moss, very uneven, and as a result every putt bobbled significantly. Worst I've ever played on.
What a shame
What a shame it is that in the building of new tee boxes (that make the course a real challenge in some holes) the other parts of the course particularly the greens have been neglected
The fairways were poor to average at best
The bunkers absolutely atrocious (very little sand and lots of gravel)
Yellow tee boxes were uneven and unkempt on most holes
And the greens were awful patchy fluffy and sandy at the same time???
A shame as if the rest of the course was in the same condition as the brand new back comp tees it would be an amazing course
Reasonably easy course ,not the best greens and best not get in the bunkers but good value for money and excellent facilities.
Now the very wet winter weather appears to have left us, this course is improving by the day. Continued improvement programme has/is taking what was a quite underwhelming layout and added a considerable amount of character.
As fairways dry and firm and grass thickens the playing conditions for the summer will be perfect, greens are generous and coming up to decent condition. Good course for the coming summer months.
Poor at best.
On the hottest day of the year so far, I booked this for myself and a friend as a 'Hot Deal'.
The courses overall condition tee to green was poor at best, grass cuttings all over the fairways along with tyre tracks and boggy areas. I have played multiple other courses over the last week around Merseyside and none were as wet as Mersey Valley.
The worst part of the round was the greens, probably the worst greens I have played on in a long time. Bobbly and uneven, with pitch marks dug in - something I would expect of a municipal course. It looks like the green keepers have given up looking after the greens as in areas there is rolled mud next to where the flag has been cut.
Tee boxes were uneven and heavily used without being repaired.
The only positive aspect of the course was the bunkers..
I would avoid this course and play at other courses in the local area. Will 100% not be playing this course again.
great course, a bit muddy in places due to the bad weather. when its dry the course will be excellent.
First time we had played this course and thoroughly enjoyed our round. The course is an easy walk but with some interesting holes. We had a 1pm tee time and only saw four other players on the course. Sandwich and a coffee for lunch was very well priced and a couple of beers after in a comfortable lounge. We will be back.
Better Last Year
I played this course last year and I thought it was much better then.
Tohe fairways had more standing water than I would of expected, and the paths are mainly in a poor condition, but on the plus side the greens are in a good condition and running true.
Magnificent Mersey Valley
Really fun little course with plenty of turns and twists that make you think. Really quiet when we played and the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly.
Amazing value for money.
Even with the amount of rain that had been had leading up to us playing, the course played extremely well and the greens were still running at a decent pace.
Very easy walking course for anyone who is looking for a quick fun round.
Course better, tee times still need fixing
Course looks much better now the grass has grown over the tonnes of rubble.
A few tees moved way forward, but scorecard doesn't match, in particular the par 5 which is now about 350yds
Greens were a bit long but ran properly
Can only echo previous comments about duplicate bookings, made to feel like I was in the wrong because another group had booked the same tee time via this site. Also told to complain to teeofftimes - why is it my problem? Update your computer system so it doesn't allow dupe bookings, or sort with teeofftimes yourselves - all I did was book a tee 5 days in advance, pay my money and turn up at the agreed time. If it keeps happening like I was told, then surely it's on you to resolve, not the customer.
Eventually got out and wasn't a bad round
