What the club says: At the Southport Golf Academy we have a range of facilities, including a 20-bay floodlight driving range, practice putting greens, a 9 hole golf course and a 18 hole golf course which is currently in development. A challenging layout awaits you at the Leisure Lakes Golf Academy, with every hole offering a different test. Two tier greens built to USPGA specifications and rivetted bunkers will provide a stern examination for the accomplished golfer, water hazards and the addition of over 500 trees give the new golfer a stimulating environment to learn the game over a manageable 1,520 yard nine-hole golf course.

Great little course worth a try

This is a course with one 4 Par and eight 3 Pars. The short nature of the holes is ideal for beginners whose tee shots are not too long. It is a tight course, loads of trees to avoid and narrow fairways make it quite challenging. Golfers with 200 yard drives might as well leave their drivers at home! Great shop, driving range and cafe. Be aware it can get very busy as the attached holiday park supplies loads of custom from novices. Some really difficult greens!

Great winter knock

Course in great condition despite wet winter and recent frost. Excellent for a quick knock when other courses not open. Tight course, testing all the clubs in the bag.

Great little course for beginners and to improve your short game and chipping.
The artificial tees could do with replacing .

This is a great course for beginners. Unless you find water or go out of bounds you will not lose your ball. I was disappointed to find winter tees at every hole but they actually worked quite well. Greens are pretty true but there are a few gradients to deal with.

Not called Leisure Lakes any more - now Southport Golf Academy. Lots seem to have been spent on it - course in good condition and as other reviewers say its ideal for a nice short game. Was busy when we were there Saturday in January - had to wait for tee time - always a good sign! New changing rooms and toilet facilities open and good cafe on site.
