What the club says: Established in 1885, The Hesketh is the oldest club in Southport and is regularly chosen for Final Qualifying when The Open arrives across town at Royal Birkdale. Part links and part parkland, the distinctive challenge of the course is that half of the holes meander through tall sand dunes, while the other half border the Ribble estuary. Some of the best holes lie between the sandhills and the clubhouse, particularly the 18th, an impressive, lengthy finishing hole.

Very Average

There are a couple of great holes on this layout, but way too many average holes that means it does not represent good value. The greens were very good but the fairways were a bit messy.

Nice course, worth playing

Second time playing Hesketh this time in much better conditions, hot sunny weather with a little bit of a breeze. Friendly welcome in clubhouse and pro shop. Course looking a bit scorched by recent hot weather giving plenty of roll on the fairways. Greens excellent, nice true roll. Temporary holes 17th & 18th in play due to redesigning so not as tough of a finish as before as now a par 3 & 4 instead of 2 par 5s. Good flat walking around but long. Will return for sure.

Excellent

Played the end of Sept and a great course, very different in parts. Parkland for the first part then gently moves into links type territory. Some fantastic holes, loads a variation, superb greens, loved it :-)

Course in great condition considering the rain we've had and preparing well for Easter comps. Beautiful day helped for an overall decent round, flying start poor middle backend recovery. Good day. Good course.

Course was recovering from storm Doris, so there were some wet areas. The greens were in excellent condition, however there were fair few winter tees and a shame to finish 18 on a temp green. Would love to play it in the summer. The service and welcome was excellent and was a lovely club house.

We usually play this course during the summer months in scheduled open competitions.I made arrangements with the pro to visit on the 30/12/16.We were made aware of the winter set up of the course & accepted that different tees were in play.Our course adopts a fairway mats policy so it was great to play the ball as it lay without a temporary green in sight!The greens had been worked upon but still ran quick and true.
We enjoyed the day & the welcome received from all of the staff. Will be booking in to your club again soon.
