What the club says: The club is called Brackenwood because the original 9 hole course, between Mount Road and Brackenwood Lane, is located on the former Brackenwood Estate. The estate was founded in 1885 by John Evans, the son of the founder of Evans Medical.

The course is very wet at the moment and only playing the bottom 9 holes, there are 4 temp greens which are not that good, however the course is holding up well and reduced green fees make it worthwhile, with a few days of dry weather should see the full course open.

Nice parkland course

This is a great little course however, at this time of year it is not in the most playable of conditions.
The fairways are currently quite wet and muddy in many places and bunkers are generally compacted.

Wirrals hidden gem.

For a public course this is a hidden gem, out of the four on the wirral this is by far the prettiest, the greens could do with the council spending money on them but this time of year (summer) brings out its best features, tree lined fairways make it a tough test especially if you cant hit a straight drive, for ?13.50 a round well worth a visit.

Good open parkland course

Nice open course. Due to recent wet weather it was a bit boggy in places and a couple of greens were very soft.
Unfortunately the first two holes have had temporary greens all this year which makes judging distance a bit tricky

Brackenwood much improved

Since lockdown, I have played this course on a weekly basis, and compared to the last quarter of 2019, I would say that the improvements are significant.
Generally, the greenkeepers have done a great job. Now all we need is for the council to sort the drainage out.

Improving

The condition of the course has improved a little over the summer, but still pricey for what it offers as a public, council run course - £14-16 is too high compared to other courses on the Wirral. £10-12 would see more players visit the course.

Worst greens ever

Yes it's a municipal but people still pay to play there and at ?13.25 it's not much cheaper than private courses and to be honest people would be better going to those
For the greens to be in that condition is frankly a disgrace to greenkeeping,the ball basically buckaroo's all the way to the hole.
