Short Course but Great Value
Played on a clear, warm day in October. Few players on the course so we got around with no pressure from behind and no waiting for players ahead of us. The course was in excellent condition with fast greens and super teeing areas. The course is a par 68 but has enough interesting holes in a heathland setting for all levels of player. Didn't use the off-course facilities as the bar prices are very high. Cheaper in the local pub.
Played today great challenge on some tight fairways, some difficult par3 and best feature was every green was in top condition... Really good round will go again a bargain £15 via tee off times
The course, people and weather were all fantastic. Good pace of play and in excellent condition. Staff were all very friendly and the food was good too.
Short but narrow heathland course with good greens.
Played in the heat wave in late May 2018. Course is short and flat which helped. It was in better shape than a month previously. However, both times we got behind a ladies medal competition which slowed us down. Having said that the people we met on and off the course were friendly, the bar facilities were great and at £12 per round it was excellent value. We will play at this course again very soon.
Challenging but very tight
Enjoyed playing at this course. Very challenging with holes that really make you think. The right choice of club is essential. The course was busy and as it’s not very long there was quite a lot of waiting. We paid £25 which I believe is not value for money. Would play here again but would never pay more than £17
Short but interesting heathland course
Played the course in April 2018 not having played it for 30 years. It is a short course (par 68) but the lay out is interesting and you will need to be straight off the tee. Having said that the heather has been thinned as have some of the wooded areas that line the fairways. The course was busy on the day which meant slower play than usual as we were were behind a ladies competition.
Other players and staff we spoke to were very friendly and the course was in great condition considering the amount of rain that had fallen recently.
As for value, our 18 holes cost £9 each, which was the same as two pints of shandy in the 19th!
Highly recommended and will return soon.
P.S. The course is now Wirral Golf Club - the "Ladies" was dropped about ten years ago in line with modern thinking.
Thank you very much for your very positive comments which we greatly appreciate. The course has been busy during April as it is one of the few courses that remains open on Wirral even in the heavy rain. That particular day was a 4BBB a format that does take some time. We look forward to welcoming you again to the club very soon. We are introducing buggies in May.
Great social golf
Great social golf course very dry for time of year compared to other local courses staff very friendly and helpful will definitely play again
Received text from assistant pro
No trolleys allowed
Didn’t say two holes closed and quite a few greens were winter ones
Some holes were lovely
I’ll probably try again in summer
The reason I chose the course was because the drainage was good
Thank you for your comments and we hope that you will try the course again in the summer months. We will take note that you were not given fuller details of the condition of the course at the time however Wirral GC is one of the few courses that has remained open throughout the severe winter and has been able to offer golf whereas other local courses have been closed.
wet under foot
the course was in great condition although wet with some temp greens an off mats but that is to be expected at this time of year, better to phone first as we turned up with trollies only to find it was carry bags only
Thank you very much indeed for your very positive comments. We are pleased that you enjoyed your round. We are in the process of putting daily updates on the website as to the suitability of trolleys or whether it is carry only.
We will have buggies very shortly.
We look forward to seeing at Wirral G.C. again soon.
Although 2 holes are closed this was still a great course given the recent weather. Just wished I had been told that the 2 holes were closed.
Wirrals Hidden Gem
This golf course is a little gem hidden away. It was a pleasure to play here. One thing is keeping the ball straight if you can manage that you'll enjoy your game. If your off the fairway tbe gorse and heather can come into play. Excellent course
Played here for the first time on 4 august,a beautiful golf course in fantastic condition,excellent greens and fairways with some fantastic bunkering,I especially loved the little par 3's,short but my no means a gimme for birdies,accuracy off the tee so important.loved playing this course and will definitely be back soon.
Good course even though it is a short course it is challenging because of the very tight fairways. Well kept fairways and nice two tier greens dominate the course. Have recommended this course to many friends and will be returning very soon
Tight and challenging
In excellent condition and a joy to play, suited both me and my young daughter. Very friendly staff.
Given the recent high winds wasn't sure what to expect. Pleasantly surprised course in great condition greens very quick. I was trying my new set of clubs bought as a birthday present. The fairways at times narrow and the need for an iron is paramount. The course itself presents a fair challenge, however was a little disoriented on the 5th by the tee box placement. The staff are really friendly as are the members. I was offered a game next Wednesday by a member. Overall I have to say given the conditions of late and the time of day the course was excellent. Great value for money will definitely be calling again. Thanks to all at the Wirral.
Need to be accurate from tee.
Think carefully on tee as a number of fairways quite narrow which makes you consider an iron for placement.
Course in good condition nice woodland course with little noise from surrounding roads so a very pleasant experience.
A good challenge for any level.
Very nice course in great condition
Not massively long but challenging in places
Wirral Golf Club Review
We arrived at 9.30am Sunday morning to be greeted by an empty, but open clubhouse and closed pro shop despite there being several cars in the car park. Fortunately a lone, but helpful lady member provided us with some score cards and wished us well. The course itself is a cracking test of golf set in secluded pockets of heathland shrubs and tight tree lined fairways. It's not the longest course by any means with most par 4 holes averaging in and around the 300 yard mark, but there's still plenty to get your teeth into with many risk/reward holes allowing you to fish the driver out and open up the shoulders, or lay up with a long iron and craft a short iron in. The highlights of the course have to be the par 3s, some within 8/9 iron reach but with quick, multi layered and slick greens you've still got your work cut out. The greens themselves were in great nick and the overall course condition was excellent. There's plenty to look at in between shots too with some stunning Tudor houses and old fashioned buildings that nestle alongside stunning modern properties next to some of the fairways with just sandstone walls and simple fences as protection. This course really is a very good and fun test of golf with some quirky holes that require a little thought and skill. Well worth a visit!
