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

Gone to pot

Played here on Saturday and was shocked how bad it was.Bunkers was unplayable with no sand,and the fairways mostly had cut grass on them.This used to be my local but I fear it wont last another 5 years and looking at the tee times that was booked for the day apart from the block booking that was 730 to 930 there was only 2 tee times taken after that.

this has gone downhill

Well the course used to be pretty good and playable all year. not any more. the place is like a bog. don't touch the ground with your club or you go no where. starter was proper miserable too. When asked are there any mats or temp tees, he just shrugged and said "dunno".

dog walkers a real problem

the course it's self is ok the fairways are not in the best condition and I didn't even play the 18th because of dog walkers just standing on the fairway without a consideration that it a a golf course.

the course is well laid out getting from hole to hole is easy

Awful.The tee boxes are far to long and the greens are really slow and need cutting, you have to really whack your putter to get the ball anywhere near the hole.

The course is in a terrible condition and greens souls be on temporaries. Some holes are closed because they are so bed. Very wet but no effort made to protect greens from kids riding their bikes across wet greens and through bunkers. Course management is none existent. AVOID at all costs. Waste of money!!

The state of this course is disgraceful. It has never been in worse condition. The tees are seldom cut, the rough is up to two feet long of thick lush new grass and there is little, if any first cut so missing the fairway by 3 -4 yards means a lost ball but should you find it it's almost impossible to get it out! The greens when I last played it appeared not to have been cut for a week and were like putting on velcro. Awful. Some bunkers had no sand and some had too much sand. This is a council run course and is obviously a victim of serious cut-backs in green staff. I would advise any green fees to think twice about playing this course.

Very disappointed with the course. We played Good Friday and it cost us £25 for the round. I had heard some good reviews about this course and was really looking forward to playing there.

A typical council course. Very poor pro shop and no practice/warm up facilities.

The course was very wet and boggy during our round.

The tee boxes were in a serious need of mower as you didn't need a tee to stand your ball up. Fairways also needed cutting and were generally in a poor condition. Sometimes we had a problem working out if we were on the fairway or not!

Bunkers need work. Because of the rain I expected the sand to be wet.

The greens looked good but are very slow.

Back nine holes would be good to play in the summer, but I would wait until late summer to play.

Plenty of people walking around/on the course. We even had two people walk across the front of the second green as we addressed our ball!

There is a café onsite which did a decent range of food.

Overall, I was very disappointed with this course. Seeing as this was a practice round for a county competition I have to play it again tomorrow!

It might be worth playing in the summer, once the ground has dried out. But, I wouldn't bother playing it when it's wet.

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

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.

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
