Not nearly as bad as people make out

We've played here a few times now. Initially we had reservations. My mate more than me. The dogs on the course got him down a bit. Doesnt bother me at all. And he now agrees with me. All the bad reviews meant I was expecting something virtually unplayable. The greens are perfectly fine. Some of the fairways are long in places but everytime I've played I've seen them out maintaining it. And there are some interesting holes. Especially with some of the tighter holes with the trees surrounding it. For a public course I would say its worth a visit for sure. Personally I would rather play there for £18 than pay £40 to play where the members are all up themselves.

In good condition but not worth the money and it was packed

Garons is a 27 hole course and the course is in good condition. Spoiled by a ?34 for 18 holes price tag and packed with golfers so a 4 ball took close to 5 hours.

Belfairs Golf Club

This is an old public golf course, although it?s not very long because of the lay out you have to play for position as a lot of the course is in woodland. We were surprised how good the condition of the greens were but they needed cutting as they were very slow. This course is outstanding value for money. I played this course in the middle of May.

this could be a very good course, it just needs some good maintenance, a new clubhouse with all the normal facilities would be a great bonus but unlikely to happen

worst course ive played

£24 and a complete waste of money - fairways are terrible - greens need cutting - bunkers are shocking - greens needed cutting - no signage on any hole or in between holes....and then theres the amount of dog walkers walking around the course as it it isnt even open. walked off after 9 holes as it was so bad - AVOID this course at all cost

Tricky gem

Tight opening hole with double O.B, and what looked to be an easy course would bite you if you were wayward. Map your way around, driver on a few of these holes really isn't the best option.
Last comment really comes into play on the last 5 holes, be warned!
Cracker of a course, will be back again

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.
