Course is in good condition, just a shame a number of the bunkers were infested with wasps - they need urgent treatment before someone gets in trouble. Not nice.

Much improved since my last visit. Played the upper and bunkers and greens are a lot better. Unfortunately they had been sanded and needed a cut but they ran ok. Tee boxes still not great but ok

Greens and bunkers :(

Greens have been tined therefore very unpredictable - usually reliable quick greens at Birchwood but these were not great. Due to heavy rain there is hardly any soft sand in the bunkers - even good bunker players are likely to drop shots if they land in one.

I play here frequently and the course is usually in lovely condition but the greens were terrible this time - recently scarified and sand-filled, so it was like putting along (or across) corduroy! I realise it's standard maintenance, but you don't expect it on a Saturday in August, and it made the greens unplayable. Would have been a nice touch to have had a warning about it in the pro shop beforehand.
Also, bunkers were very poor - many very short on sand.
Rest of the course in good condition.

A great golfing experiece

I have played Birchwood Park many times before but I thought it deserved a few words this time. The course is in outstanding condition with good fairways, playable semi rough and the course punishes for wayward shots. Bunkers are generally in excellent condition and each hole provides a good test of golf which rewards the straight hitting golfer. The greens are in superb condition, well manicured, challenging and provide an excellent test although you need to be in good position or a 3 putt is on the cards. My last two rounds have been Twilights so 3 hour rounds for two of us with no slow play. A must play if you haven't before and a course I will keep going back to as it gets better and better as the landscape matures.

The 18 hole course this year has got to be, apart from a couple of bunkers, in the best condition ever. The fairways are like carpets and the greens are as quick as you would want. Excellent.

Lovely condition

Very nice condition course and the greens are near perfect. The bunkers still need attention as every bunker seems to have different sand in them and at a different depth. The biggest let down if the pricing £30+ for mid week and £40+ At weekends. There are as good courses in the area for a fraction of the price!

Good course

This is well worth a visit, the fairways are wide greens not to fast but very green, the course is well looked after, the car park gets very full because of the leisure centre at this site.

Great condition

The trick to playing Birchwood is to play off peak, the round before this on a Saturday lunchtime took 5hours 15mins waiting at most holes up to the 13th. This round took 2 hours less and was very enjoyable and the course and in particular the greens were excellent. Definitely would recommend

Great venue, especially since the refurbishment. Course is always in good condition, greens very true and well paced, true to putting green before the round too.
