Nice course

Nice course with plenty of challenging holes, very good value for money, was tricky with the wind and rain but definitely worth a visit, I’ll definitely go back

Back 9 greens in need of work

Not a bad course and value for money if you can get a cheap deal. Some of the greens on the back 9 let this course down. It’s open and forgiving and worth a visit

Lovely course

Visited this course many times over the years when staying in Blackpool. Well kept course, some slight hills with views over countryside. Not too busy after morning rounds so we were on our own on a very sunny day midweek. Lovely experience. Staff in bar friendly and food very good. Outside terrace overlooking course.

Better than ever

Played this course many times in all conditions over the years. Today was the best ive seen it, absolutely superb.
It has been a little worse for wear in recent times: long grass on fairways greens unkempt etc but got there today and was so pleasantly suprised i had to write a review as it does get bad press. A credit to the groundstaff. Will be back more often.

Grass needed cutting & no yardage markers

Grass was long for fairways and greens, also no yardage markers, so didn’t have a clue on distance to pin....apart from that ok

Poor

Staining Lodge has the potential to be a really nice course but it is way off. The grass on the fairways is too long in places, you can’t distinguish between fairways and the first cut in others - the first cut is more like the rough on some holes. Losing balls on the fairway is just ridiculous. I’ve played at much better courses where, width-wise, they have quite forgiving fairways. However, here some of the fairways are far too narrow and there’s really no need for it. The potential weather conditions on the Fylde Coast already make this a challenging course. £21 for a round on a freezing, windy Sunday afternoon is far too much as well. I can’t fault the staff there but it would appear that the Lodge itself and the business that creates is more of a concern than the course itself. There are some good holes here that, with a bit of investment and course design could be so much better.

Course needs a little TLC

I’ve always enjoyed playing here, friendly staff, fantastic value for money. £13.
Unfortunately today the course looked a bit tatty, compared to the several other times I’ve played here.
Can’t wait to see it back to its best.

Very poor save your money

Played the course on Sunday 24 March it was like playing on a farmers field you could not tell the fairways from the rough so it was easy to loose your ball on the so called fairway. All this for 21 pound each I will never play there again.

Poor course!

Played the course yesterday and was very disappointed in the condition. They still let buggies on and they’re cutting the course apart! The fairway to rough has no definition at all! You can hit a shot straight down the middle and you can still lose your ball because it will just plug into the marshy land or it will get lost in the long grass that is supposed to be fairway.
I have played Staining on numerous occasions and this is the worst I have ever seen it. I won’t be coming back anytime soon.

Winter golf expectation

I played here recently and it was really boggy. Balls that went in the middle of the fairway took a long time to find, once they were found they were drilled into the ground because of the softness (wet/winter). I loved the course layout and really want to play this challenging course when the conditions get better.

Never been disappointed.

Always happy to play at Staining.
Lots of players aren’t keen on the layout,
I think it’s fine.
Will always look to play here.

Just OK

Course ok but disappointing. . Distance markers not very clear. Obviously they prefer male players as not very welcoming to ladies 4ball.
No food available after 3.30pm .
Think this venue is concentrating on the cafe/restaurant customers. Golfers not as welcome. Went elsewhere for a meal and drinks .

Out and About

A local course but not somewhere we had been before. I read the previous reviews before going so was a little apprehensive about the fairways. The fairways were in very good condition I thought but that was the best part of the course. Greens had been scarified recently which I find very late in the year to be done. I would normally expect it around the end of April beginning of May. Even accounting for this factor, the greens were in very poor condition. Dry, bobbly, uneven and random holes on almost every green. Not un-repaired pitch marks either. I didn't find a bunker today so can't comment on the quality of those. It is a fairly new course and it is a bit featureless but you would expect that given the location of where they have built the course. Basically I assume it is reclaimed farmland. I paid £16 today and wouldn't want to pay anymore than that. I doubt I will be back. The Clubhouse is lovely and the staff friendly, but I think that recent expenses have been spent on other things rather than the course.

One more thing I forgot to add and you would think it a basic requirement for all courses. Very few distance markers around the course. The ones they do have are in terrible spots so second shots are all down to judgement.

Was this comment useful to you?

A friendly, laid back course

Had a great round of golf. Perfect pace and not too busy even for a Bank Holiday. Friendly owner.
Had a snack in clubhouse after, which was very nice.
