Kirkby Valley

Not my best days golf but the course was great. Some of the bunkers not playable but GUR was used. Greens and fairways were very good but some of the tees were a little tatty but this did not distract from the positive impression of the course - definitely one to play again.

Course getting there

Work continues in order to bring improvements to the course. Give it 2 years or so and it will be a gem.

More of a building site than a golf course now. Earth mounds everywhere, trees cut down. Tees and greens uneven with very patchy grass. Lots of water features added but God only knows what is in some of them. The liquid in some is a very weird colour and I certainly wouldn't attempt to retrieve a ball from that stuff. Some changes were to be expected when the change of ownership occurred but this is now years later and the course is a shambles but the green fees have actually increased! Whoever is responsible for the changes seems to believe that covering every fairway with as many bunkers as possible makes a good course but I'm afraid I don't agree. This used to be one of the best municipals in all of Merseyside. Sure the drainage needed improving but the never ending building work has ruined this course and I will not play here again.

Making progress

A lot of changes are being made and could see a lot of progress since last I played. Greens were in very good condition. However, a few little things continue to let it down.
There a no bins on some holes and there was a lot of litter around.
The 'card' was just a printed piece of paper.
A lot of holes don't have 150 yd markers.
Play was very slow. 4 hour round for a 2 ball
No dress code. People playing in football boots!
Nobody replaces divots or repairs pitch marks.

Could be a nice course in a few years but they need to educate players on how to look after the course.

Well this is new!

Having played this course since the 1980's but not played there this year, I was so surprised to see the changes to the structure (tree removal, sculpting etc.). And then the rearranging of the back nine layout. Different and it works well. Had a new feel almost. Fairways and greens in very good condition. Cannot recommend highly enough.

A course in transition

A nice course that's having a lot of work done to it. You can see this is going to be a gem in a couple of years time. Greens were in nice condition, running true. Some holes shorter than the card due to work being done on the tee boxes, but you can see the potential in what they are doing.
