What the club says: Great Lever Golf Club & Farnworth Golf Club, both 9 hole courses at the time, amalgamated to form Great Lever and Farnworth Golf Club in 1917. The course has changed considerably in the time up to the present day, both in it's layout and Club House location. Due to it's location, there are spectacular views over the Cheshire Plain, North Lancashire and into Yorkshire.

The course has obviously had a lot of work done on it with areas that were previously (very) rough now being cut back and allowing wayward shots to be found and played. The layout of the course has also been swapped round since we last played which was slightly confusing for some of our group who wandered off and teed up on the wrong tee box.
Despite the heavy rain on the day we enjoyed the game and are playing there again this week. My brother is even considering membership of the course.

Very nice course

Played on a Tuesday morning, the course was quiet. It is well maintained and the greens were firm and fast after recent dry weather. Although the course is pretty flat there is a bit of a walk between two or three holes. The layout has changed so my Apple watch and my playing partners Garmin lost track on the 15th. Very friendly staff and members. We?ll worth a visit.

Loved this course and the members.

This course has moved on so much in the last 18 months. The new green keeper has sorted out all the main problems with the course, put in new bunkers, and is working so hard getting the greens in the best quality possible. He's add members helping with sorting out the drainage, placing a fountain in the 18th hole pond, getting the fairways in great condition. If this is a course that you have not played for a while, I strongly recommend you take another look, and with some amazing membership deals being had at the moment it really is a course on the way up. Massive well done to Ben and his team.

New green keeper last year and what a difference he and his team have made this is going to be a great course if the local idiots stay off it and dont vandalise the greens well done to all staff for the great work so far

Great value and very peaceful.

The course was in good nick and a ?15 green fee was excellent value. My only gripe would be the condition of the greens which were not up to the the standard of the rest of the course.

Massive inprovements made

This course has always had a friendly feel to it, but was in need of some TLC to turn it into a really good course. I am pleased to say that Major changes have been made, and there are more changes to come. The introduction of a new head green keeper, Ben, he's come here with a 5 yr plan and is being backed all the way by the club. What he's done in the last 12 months is amazing. With lots more to come.

Don’t play here, I played here a few years ago and it was a lovely to play, not anymore . The fairways were decent but the greens were the worst I’ve ever played on including pitch and putt courses. There were holes, every putt bobbled and jumped and some had donut tyre marks due to yobs driving their motorbikes on the course and greens. One green was completely closed due the damage it had. I also had a child pinch my ball from the fairway on one hole.

Safe to say I will not be returning, not even if you paid me. Save your money and play somewhere else.
