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.

Quality on the golf coast

Well as ever Hesketh didn?t disappoint. I?ve played here a few times but not since the reshaped 17th fairway which is still work in progress and could do with some signage for newcomers to the course as in distance and direction. I do believe it will overtime become a fantastic feature of what is a deceptively challenging course. The greens were in perfect condition as they always are and be advised you need to be accurate when driving off the tees and on some holes it?s advisable not to be too greedy as it will suck you into all sorts of trouble. I absolutely love this course in my back yard and is up their with Hillside, S&A etc. Make a point of seeking this fantastic gem out.

Enjoyable links/parkland layout. In overall good condition. 14th and 15th lovely pair of holes. Greens were very good in mid May. Condition of some fairways average still recovering from last summer. Grass driving range is a bonus.

One of the best

Played with a Society and it?s fair to say that Hesketh GC is a level above courses that I have played previously.
I didn?t play particularly well but enjoyed every single hole & will definitely visit again.

Great course

Considering we played at end of march and the weather has been very wet for a few weeks leading up to it, the course has stood up to it unbelievably. Very challenging in places and accuracy over distance takes priority. Well worth a visit.

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.

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.
