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.

Very average course, greens were not in very good condition and they had the audacity to charge £75 per man! If you are looking to play in the North West there are many better courses at a much more reasonable price.

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

Beautiful course with lush fairways. Aerated greens although this did not bother me too much. Got asked to leave the bar as I wasn't wearing a jacket and a tie!!!!! Too traditional/old fashioned and snobby for my liking, however, the gentleman who greeted us was very pleasant and obliging. Would like to play again but will have to remember to wait outside the door of the bar!!!!!!

Reviewed Sep 25 2013 by John Russell. Sheffield - rated 4 out of 5
Played here late Sept 2013. We were 9 visitors playing some of the more famous links courses around Southport. It was impossible to get on most of these courses on a Saturday because of members comps, however Ormskirk set aside 1 hour each Sat when visitors may play. The course is parkland and wide fairways so we spent a lot less time searching for our balls than we had on the much tighter links courses. The course was in good condition and the greens were very good. No pressure from members on the course and despite some comments about lack of friendliness here from previous reviewers we found quite the opposite. The pro was very helpful and welcoming and the members we talked to before and after the round were most pleasant and also very welcoming. It is true that the clubhouse is a bit old fashioned and there is still a lounge where jacket and tie have to be worn at all times, but so what. If visiting the area and looking for somewhere to play on Saturday during the summer season I would fully recommend Ormskirk

Great society day out

Our local professional organised another society day out to Ormskirk, promising us a tough test on an immaculate golf course and he wasnt wrong with either statement. From the moment we walked in until the moment we walked out, we were looked after by the staff and the club.
This course is a course of two halves with long par four holes on the front nine (not so good for the shorter hitters) contrasting with three par threes and several shorter par fours with tight fairways surrounded on both sides by trees. Not much water on the course apart from a pond that runs between the 1st and 18th fairways but nevertheless, this course is tough!
The fairways and first cut were so smooth and lush, greens were immaculate and very true albeit a little slow due to a deluge of rain the night before, and the bunkers were superbly prepared by the ever busy greenkeeper and his staff. I cannot praise the greens and course staff enough for their presentation of their pride and joy even after the downpour the night before.
There is ample parking, the food was excellent and drinks were not overpriced. The bar staff were immaculately dressed in club uniform and everyone was so friendly. The pro shop is well stocked and the pro himself saved me buying a new all weather glove as he was convinced the weather would be good for our day out and after an initial shower or two he proved to be spot on!
I will definitely play this course again and this was the same feedback from most of those who took part.
Thankyou Ormskirk for a truly memorable day.
