What the club says: Those who designed Southport's 'Muni,' as it is affectionately known, certainly knew their job. It is indeed flat and looks totally forgiving for the golfer arriving in the calm of a summer's morning. But it is among the best challenges of the region's pay-and-play courses.

One reason is it is virtually on the shore, exposed to the winds. For another, at almost 6,250 yards off the main tees (yellow 5903 par 70), it is reasonably long for a public course. Also, there are no downhill sloping fairways to hurry the ball along, 'shorten' the holes. This 'muni' is a course that plays its full length - and particularly when the wind comes in strong from the Irish Sea.

A local course

Has it?s ups and downs this course. Played many times. If they could keep the rough cut back a bit more then it would improve it. You shouldn?t be losing balls just off of the fairway. Can get very wet at times. Very important to score well on 8th - 11th holes to come home with a good score.

Gem of a course

Second trip and still thoroughly enjoyable. For where it is and in comparison to more illustrious neighbours I think it?s a gem. Low green fees, decent condition, nice mix of holes right on the seafront, bargain. And it?s been glorious sunshine every time I?ve played!

in very very poor condition

I used to play here regularly til 3 years ago, and returned yesterday. Greens are the worst I have ever played on, bald and burnt and cracked areas, lots and lots of divots and holes, basically unplayable.
Struggled to find ball on uncut fairways, with all the weeds etc. Rough is impossible to play out of. Avoid playing here until it gets sorted.

Shocking how they are letting this course go. No wonder it empty because they don’t look after it. Greens are shocking and the rough is ridiculous. It’s a municipal, cut the rough and feed and water the greens. Cheaper at Duxbury and a much better course

They are improving the course by clearing the rough a bit but it still needs a lot of work doing.
