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.

The course is good. But the greens on Brackenwood are very poor.

Local Municipal Parkland Course

My local municipal course a fairly gentle test of your game. Some tight driving holes and some O.B. On this particular day the greens were atrocious except for 3 holes. Looked like greens may have some sort of fungal disease. Pity as greens have always been some of the best for local municipal courses.

A few of the greens are not in the best condition. That's the only reason i wouldn't recommend it. Such a pity.
