scenic and winding

Enjoyable round, interrupted by dog walkers but ok. One area for improvement is signage, I got lost twice.

Wet Day out at Belfairs GC Leigh

As part of a family get together this was my first time back at Belfairs GC for 7 years. I always liked the layout oof the course and as such since that time it has not really changed. However when you play as many courses as I do then you definitely see why people don't return. Firstly at £18.96 (why not £19..) it is not great value especially when its rivals such as Mardyke, Top Meadow and Basildon offer a better experience. Belfairs is pretty, tight course with many tree line holes . It is council run so suffers from a lack of investment overall in terms of maintenance, money spent on it and especially because i is a very busy wood with Dog Walkers, Children and many people enjoying the woods as they should. The greens were generally good but needed a cut (12th and 13th were in poor condition though). Teeboxes needed a cut and at times the grass was enclosing the Ball at tee off. Most of the fairways were in reasonable condition. Back to the game well its safe to say the weather was poor and this hampered playing conditions further. Overall it needs money spent on it. It is ok but the competition for midweek golf there is better value elsewhere which is a shame because it could be a great course.

My Favourite

Pay and play course with two clubs accepting new members. Considering this is pay and play it is great value and has a lot of history as the course is quite old.

An ok public course

Love Belfairs for sentimental reasons. Great figuration but spoilt by dog walkers and general public as set in a park. In different circumstances, could be great.
Avoid school holidays as park gets rammed

Poor condition, could be so much better

The course is in a public woods and so you get families walking their dogs, they frequently walk up and down the fairways and you constantly have to wait for the fairways to clear. Should be a fantastic course but spoils from a golfing point of view by the walkers

Cheap pay and play

Get what you pay for. Pay and play, cheap - greens could do with a lot of work. Layout is good, back 9 surrounded by trees. Dog walkers throughout the course make for some interesting encounters. Would play once a year just to change things up
