Nice track

I really enjoyed Stanley Park, its a nice municipal. Nicely laid out with some interesting holes, especially on the front 9, once you cross the road.
There are a couple of short par 4's to have a go at & all the par 3's are very nice.
Greens are in good condition & it looks like they are working hard to make the course even better.
Top that off with some really friendly locals, all in all a really pleasant experience.

Early start

Nice conditions. Drove well (generally) but approach play needs work. Overall this is an excellent course and in the best condition it’s been for years

Good Condition and great value

In better condition than I've seen it for ages, good to see the groundstaff out raking bunkers and moving pin positions as we were going round.

Used to play the park a lot but the greens got to be so poor it wasn't enjoyable. Good to see them in far better nick, a couple were a bit woolly and lacking grass but still better than they were

Very nice course, worth a visit.

Tough front 9 at par 36 and a much easier and open back nine at or 34. Excellent scenery and some challenging holes. The only downside I?d give to this course is that it is necessary to cross a busy road to continue after the second hole on the front 9, and cross back to begin the back nine. There are traffic lights and a crossing but I wouldn?t expect it on a course.

Not been for a few years

and was pleasantly surprised how good a condition it was in given the recent heatwave. Greens were actually a little damp and slow after some rain in the morning. The rough was well defined and punished you accordingly without killing the round.

Mack Golf should be ashamed

I played here last summer and the course was much improved, apparently mainly thanks to new staff.
There appears to have been little or no investment since then and the head greenkeeper has left, which is understandable. Some holes are unplayable due to wet conditions ie up to your ankles in mud when Mack Golf website says the course is open, no buggies or trolleys. I appreciate we've had a wet season but the total lack of investment is now obvious. Talking to a few poor members, it seems a lot will not be renewing their membership this April.I don't blame them. Mack Golf need to put serious investment here and reinstate the good staff or else this place will revert to Blackpool Council who will be happy to sell it for unaffordable housing. Shame. It used to be good. Mack Golf should be ashamed to let good staff go and not invest at all in the course.I will not be back.

Much improved

This course has improved so much since last year. New greens staff have worked hard and the results are obvious.. Tees still need a bit of work but the fairways were good and most of the greens ran true. Will be back. Recommended for all golfers. A good test. Very scenic now with nice definition. Keep up the good work!
