Resort course that could be better

The layout is good, the greens are too hard (as in can't be held). Probably a great course to play if you can smash it miles. (Three of the Par 5's are 500 plus, one is 558. Three par 4's are well over 400. The 15th is 446 up the hill)
A lot of the holes (Especially the 5's) don't give much by way of risk / reward so the best you'll get is par.
The tee boxes could do with a lot of work being done.
The resort is set up for parties. It's big and corporate.

The service in the bar and food area is abysmal. Just terrible, no staff care about it. The course is fantastic though.

We played a lovely golf course today at Formby Hall. The weather was not too good as it rained quite a bit but that didn't spoil our enjoyment of the day. Would definitely play the course again and hopefully the weather would be better.

We are members at this course but this is the first round this year. Considering all the rain in march the course is looking very good indeed. Well worth an early year knock

Played here 27th to 30th October in a society weekend. The food and the facilities was awesome. The course was in decent condition and the greens were flying but the 3 star review is down to slow play. We played 3 rounds all of which took 5 and a half hours. Called the pro shop to get someone out to try and speed things along, which he did. The problem seems to be tee time to close together creating back ups on the tees. A on course Marshall needs to be in place.

Take lots of balls!

Great challenge of golf , quick greens thick rough.

If your lucky to stay out of the water , course management is a must.
