Everything about the course is fine but it was far too wet to play. I don’t like the options of forfeiting money or wading through ridiculous amounts of water. The course should have been closed and money refunded. Paths between holes were flooded so you’d have to wade through shin deep water or clamber around the path. Loads of standing water on fairways and some greens. Bunkers full to the brim.
Taking money in this situation is counter productive because players won’t enjoy it and serious damage will be done to the course.
Turn up and play with ease, a few challenging holes and good pace of play. The Tees and greens require attention, the fairways are good
Decent course, some lovely holes
We had an enjoyable round on a Sunday morning. I didn't notice any of the issues with the course as mentioned by other reviewers. One green was a bit damp but that was due to the location as it's very shady nestled among tall trees (it was also the tough and interesting dog-leg hole which other reviewers have also mentioned). Overall a very good test and no complaints for £11pp!
The tee areas on all 9 holes were very worn and some were muddy greens ok but one or two had chunks missing filled in with sand rough was to severe up to over a foot in places and just off the fairway too not a good course for a high handicap player
The setup seems nice with lots of stuff going on. The academy course though was a bit odd. After the first hole i had to walk what seemed like forever over a stone path. Got a bit lost on a few holes. Apart from that it was fairly good
Great little 9 hole course with enough challenge to make it interesting
Very friendly staff a nice mixture of holes and no waiting or being chased great. Only 2 downsides, layout is slightly strange long walk from hole 1-2 and the greens were a bit patched in places, but these are minimal and I’ve already booked to play again next week
Little Gem at High Legh...
Recently, played this course several times due to Championship course being very busy.
Very good 9 hole course, perfect for practice & improving short game.
Some really nice holes & deep rough makes it a really fun challenge!
Great starter course but....
Visited with my son 12 and took him on the starter course - played 9 holes. Practice green was nice. Range open with available tees. Good set up. Teed off 12.51 with 9 min gaps behind - but chap with son arrived and teed off whilst we were on the green - par 3! Course was in nice condition but obviously very wet in certain areas. Overall VFM was good, course condition was good and sun shining. Little gripe - asked at the cafe bar (where we got card) and at the shop for a pencil - nobody could help. Also, got a bit of attitude of an older chap when I ordered a Kit Kat and 2 drinks. Obviously, had more important things to do. Heard him give a bit of attitude to a chap ordering some beers. Bit weird. Nice place and good set up though.
Enjoyed my round very much. Course was wet but playable. If anything thay need to put more clear signs on the academy course. Will definitely play again. Will recomend to my mates.
Excellent for Learners
I have been playing Academy 9 hole courses with my 10 year old kid who is just starting out on his lifetime adventures with Golf.
High Legh fits the bill. Great set up on entering the Golfing car park, with excellent facilities, inc putting green, driving range and practice area. Full 18 hole course which we will play in the future as it looks so sweet. Loved the 9 hole course as a starting out point, not too strenuous a walk. The 7th, Augusta I think its called, is a dream hole, 160 yards iron off tee to a massive dog leg left with a easy 8 iron on green, left with a simple birdie putt. Thats in theory !!! It wouldn't be out of place at more illustrious clubs. Greens need work.
Playing again soon. Would definitely recommend.
Brill all round
This place and set up for golf for all standards is ideal
I played 9 holes on the academy course and as is stated was good test for all standards of golf, this was absolutely spot on with a great mixture of par 3s and a very long par 4 and 5
Found the course no too busy for a Sat afternoon and enjoyed very pleasant round mid afternoon
Excellent facilities in and around the course, snack bar, bar, putting area, driving range, golf shop etc,
Will be going again for sure in the near future, and not expensive at all, glad I went and gave it a try
The 9 hole academy course was challenging
The course held up well after a sustained period of wet weather.
We were pleased with the mix and variety of long and short holes.
Excellent value for money.
Played the 9 hole academy course. Generally in good condition although the tees and greens needed considerable improvement - too much moss on the greens. Otherwise very enjoyable round of golf and would definitely play again
