What the club says: More than 100 years old, Ormskirk was laid out in the now peaceful west Lancashire countryside of Latham Park, although it was once the scene of some of the fiercest fighting throughout the English Civil Wars. Ormskirk is now known for its tight fairways, well guarded greens and water features, all of which conspire to provide a demanding but enjoyable round.
Set in 125 acres it has a total length of 6358 yards - par 70 (SSS 71). The front nine is regarded as one of the longest in Lancashire-North West.
Dress Code rules have recently been relaxed and are clearly displayed on the website.

Fantastic course

Great people. Great course. Great staff loved the whole experience. So few people on such a lovely day. One minor issue no where to practice a full swing. Brilliant short game area though.

Idiotic dress rules and buggy from hell

I've been meaning for some time to leave a review of this club - it has a nice enough golf course, but our day was soured in two regards. Not unnaturally, in the middle of summer several of our party turned up in shorts. In my case, these were brown tailored shorts with black shoes and hose. For some reason I, and I alone, was required to wear white socks. Not having any on my person, the young lady in the shop cheerfully sold me a pair of ankle length synthetic horrors for two pounds which I wore over my knee-length cotton ones for the rest of the day. Secondly, one of our party needs a buggy to play eighteen holes, which was booked well in advance. He was given something akin to a three-wheeled quad bike, with the engine like a Harley Davidson and ride quality of a camel. Come on Ormskirk - not good enough.

Superb condition less than a week after snow

Ormskirk has really stepped up. Two days before my tee time I received an email from the Secretary asking me to call. This was to inform me that there were likely to be 2 temporary greens and to check I was still happy to tee off. The welcome in the shop on the day was extremely warm, as were the staff in the clubhouse. Considering the weather (snow and rain) just days before, the fairways and greens were fantastic (two temps on the day aside), with no standing water to be seen.
Fantastic round and I will be back.

Lush grass like walking on felt

Great course, fairways are soft, grass is like walking on felt. First cut pretty good to play off. Greens are immaculate. Really friendly pro shop.

I didn't play well but still enjoyed the course

Great day at a great course which was in superb condition for the year although there was still little run on the fairways. Greens had recently been microtyned so we're a little bobbly but all was good

One of the best Courses in the North West, we played last Thursday as always the course was in great condition, a good fair test for all golfers. You are made very welcome by all the staff and to end our day we had a great meal in very pleasant surroundings. Thank you Ormskirk we will be back.

Superb course in good condition if a little damp in places. Fairways and tees the best I have played this year, greens where also good. The front nine seems tighter although some of the holes are quite similar in distance but subtle changes in shape make it interesting. Course played long as no run on the fairways and balls stopping on the greens. Will visit again soon!
