Runcorn

First time we’ve played this course but definitely won’t be the last

Very good layout flat but not featureless

Something for everyone but key to scoring is hit the ball straight

The greens were in good condition with plenty of subtle borrows to fool you

Friendly staff and all in all good value for money well worth a visit

Very Enjoyable

First time at this course. Thought the course played excellently and the greens were very demanding. Very quick and every putt had to be thought about. Perfect condition especially the greens. Loved the course. Only downside was that the 1st and 5th holes had totally different tee areas in midweek compared to weekend and the weekend tee areas made these holes so much better. Except for that it was a perfect day. Will be back very soon

Hot weather

Beautiful course!

We played this course for the first time on 2nd July and have happily played it twice since. It is a beautiful course and if we are ever in this neck of the woods again, it will be our first choice of courses to play. The weather had been scorching hot for a number of weeks so that made playing conditions challenging, but the greens had been well kept and lush. Everybody at the club were so lovely and friendly. One particular lady was particularly lovely and helpful and we had the good luck to see her again on one of our later visits. The professional, Tom, is an absolutely lovely man and is an asset to any club. He went out of his way to make sure we were enjoying our visit and couldn't do enough. The clubhouse is lovely, clean. The bar staff are very friendly and the food is great! Brilliant portions for a VERY reasonable price. The only down side I would warn anybody about is...one of our follow up games was on a Friday morning. There is a group of elderly gentlemen that play a fourball every Friday morning. They are lovely gentlemen but they will not let you play through. They are extremely slow!! If you are in a hurry or can't stand slow play, avoid Friday mornings and afternoons. (Yes, they are THAT slow, it drags well into the afternoon)

Well maintained

Runcorn is a pleasant course, fairly wide fairways, most tree-lined. A few ditches to watch out for. Bunkers not too difficult. I enjoyed playing the course

Good course for the money

Cheap round on teeofftimes, only £11 for 11:50 tee off. Maybe wouldn't pay full price of £30 though.

Pace can be slow sometimes depending on what comp has been on in the morning, although layout of holes means can possibly skip ahead and play course out of order.

Had new distance markers put in, 200 / 150 / 100yds all very visible from anywhere - great improvement. Also astro turf / stones have been put down on paths between holes ready for winter. Looked like winter tees also being worked on.

Most greens in good condition, although the par5 in the far corner was very patchy and bare, esp considering the par3 green 40 yards away was much better. Some fairways looking a bit bare, although still able to take a reasonable divot with irons.

Not used any facilities so can't comment. Will definitely be back

A nice friendly course in ok condition for mid April

Played here for the first time and was met by a nice friendly chap running the pro shop. He advised me that the course was just getting cut in and a society had just gone out. I wasn't in a rush and the sun was shining so all good.

The tee boxes were in ok condition. The fairways that hadn't yet been cut in were creating a lost ball scenario despite sending one straight down the middle. 5 minutes looking allowed the society players to progress further (we hoped).

The greens were enjoyable and one could see that in their prime, they'd play fast and tricky.

After a few holes, we caught the society up. No signs of getting called through (we were a 2 ball). 5 hours later we finished our round burnt and battered. This was not the fault of Runcorn GC.

Maybe a sign coming off 6 to indicate where the 7th tee was as we had to be pointed in the right direction by friendly locals.

We didn't have time to pop in the clubhouse afterwards due to the time taken to get around so I can't comment on the beer or staff within.

All in all, it was a good day out and we were grateful to the sunny conditions as 5 hours for a 2 ball in the wind or rain would have taken it's toll.

If I was to play here again then I'd be sure to do it in May as the course would be playing much better by this time.

I'd recommend to others as the £13 it cost was money well spent. I'm not sure I'd pay much more than that though unless it was in absolute pristine condition and there wasn't 22 people in front of me not allowing quicker players through.

Absolutely awful

This course was one of the worst courses I have ever played the course was completely waterlogged and in most places unplayable standing water everywhere. The course was poorly maintained and not sure if this was a municipal or not but most municipal were better. It didn’t help I got stuck behind a 5 or 6 or 7 ball depending on which hole they played which was frustrating and play was just rediculosly slow. Will never touch here again

Very wet

Played this course on Friday and my opinion is this course is to wet to play on.

The fairways had not been cut and looked more like semi rought.

Will not be returning to this course in winter months.

Great day's golf

First time my wife and I have played Runcorn GC. The course is well layed out with easy to follow signposts. The greens are in very good condition too. The course is a challenge for any golfer. I would recommend Runcorn GC to any non-member.

Impressive Parkland Course

Recently played this course and was left very impressed. The condition of the course was great. The back 9 is a challenge to any level of golfer especially the 17th hole which would fit in on any of the top courses in the UK. On arrival the guys in the Pro were shop very welcoming and really helpful.

I would recommend you give this course a go you will not be disappointed. Look forward to returning. Well done to everyone involved at Runcorn Golf Club.

Average

Average course, first 8 holes are very similar and therefore slightly boring. Be careful when booking on teetimes app as price said £12.50 each for 2 people and then we got charged £15! Other than that greens well kept and ok course if you an average player.

Runcorn GC

cheap & cheerful basic course but best to play when the ground's softer, as most greens were impossible to hold on the fly.

ideal location for a round on our way to the Open at Birkdale & very friendly local people there.

Excellent course

Wonderful course, excellent condition and a fair but testing challenge. Front and back nine similar with tree lined tight fairways but back nine more undulating and testing. Friendly staff and members. Would definitely recommend - a little gem.
