What the club says: Houghwood Golf Club has a parkland golf course on the edge of the Lancashire Plain with spectacular views over to the Welsh Hills. Large receptive greens used all year and wide fairways provide a good test of golf without spoiling your enjoyment. Head Greenkeeper works closely with the STRI to produce consistently true putting surfaces.

Summer comp

No pick & place and ball constantly full of mud not enjoyable at all. Greens good but 1st cut to long.

Course was in great condition. Greens were very quick with some tricky pin positions. Only down side was the number of pitch marks on the greens. Amazed so many people don't repair them.

Not value for money

This course could be great but isn't. Greens were average, fairways had grass cuttings all over them, not worth the ?20 to play. Originally quoted ?25. We also spent the day following a 5 ball, enough said.

Adam

Played on a sarurday afternoon. Course in very good condition, an interesting variety of holes which use the natural undulations well. The greens were good and true although not overly quick. We would certainly advise a buggy as this course would be tough to walk. The pace of play was a little slow as there was a comp on in front, given it was a weekend we understood this. The clubhouse was modern and service friendly. In summary a good days golf on a well maintained course. Well worth a visit.

Great course

This is quite a challenging course but you need a buggy. you can also see the weather coming in from Liverpool so it gives time to prepare the waterproofs!

Definitely a worthwhile course and facilities to visit particularly in the Autumn months when greens remain in play. Plenty of variance to the challenge of this course albeit, if not in great health, a buggy needed as some tee to greens can be testing.

A very good course with great facilities. Plenty of must play holes that want you coming back for more. Greens in play most of the year which is a bonus when still playing in October and November.
