Vicars Cross is situated just off the A51 4 miles from Chester City Centre but feels a 1000 miles away from the hustle and bustle and noise of surburban life. The course is in very good condition for most of the year and is kept that way by occasional closures after very bad weather - so do check before making a long journey after heavy rain.

The course is a fairly long, gently undulating parkland course with many interesting features including:

- a dog-leg approach to the 1st green around (or over) a cleverly hidden water hazard
- the long dog-leg par 5 2nd which tempts us regular slicers to attempt to pinch some yardage round the corner - An attempt which inevitably ends in a disastrous venture into a grove of new planted trees - and chipping out sideways with no guarantee of a clear 3rd shot
- the blind 7th "bell hole" which punishes anyone who tries to drive the obvious line close to the nearby trees by giving them no clear 2nd shot to the green
- the very short par 4 9th which looks like a par 3 but will still take a driver to get up the hill to. An ideal birdie opportunity, though.

The course finishes off with a deceptively short par 3 from an elevated tee - which invites a pitching wedge from the unwary but actually requires an 8 iron to get up to the pin on the higher tier of the stepped green for most mortals.

All in all, an excellent challenge for every grade of player and one that you'll be wanting to repeat again before long.

The good times don't finish on the course - After your round, try out the excellent range of hot sandwiches in the very friendly clubhouse - or peruse the stock in the newly refurbished pro-shop.

This is a private club that non-members will feel at home at. The atmosphere is cordial and relatively informal but manages to maintain high standards of etiquette without being stuffy or overbearing. (Wayne would approve!)

Overall, this club comes very highly recommended as far as this particular non-member is concerned.

Awesome

Played here in glorious sunshine on Friday in our society. I used to be a member here no know that it is good. I didn't remember it being this good though. Challenging but fair and true greens that were immaculate. That is always the starting point for me. Fairways were very good and bunkers as good as you would expect at the moment. Then the little bonuses that make it a bit more special like the tee boxes, these were well looked after and not just a couple of stakes on some short grass. They are clearly marked and some raised up and well manicured. Always a good sign for me. Then after sitting on the new patio watching our society finish up on the lovely par 3 18th was great with a cold beer in the sun. And the food was awesome. Throw in a range for your warm up at £1.50 for 25 balls and you are onto a winner. And the bacon butties were ace too. Seriously can't think of a single negative. Brilliant. Simply brilliant.

Excellent course, their are lots of very interesting holes. Some nice dog legs, holes with a brook running across the fairway that will come into play. The fairways are in really nice condition, the greens are very quick with contours and different levels.

It's a course i'll certainly be going back too, the welcome is very friendly and the course is a fair challenge for any handicap.

Reviewed Jun 13 2015

The course was in immaculate condition with the greens running perfectly.

I found the course interesting throughout, with some well-designed and shaped holes, par 3s which require an accurate but not intimidating shots and deceptively tempting par 5s. There is plenty of trouble to get into around the course to rack up some of the less-desirable scores, but it never feels too tight or unfair. The water on the course tends to be streams crossing fairways rather than massive lakes and the one pond does not really come into play.

The fairways are great with a couple swails ready to swallow up your ball at the slightest invitation, however, the real highlight is the greens: varied, well defended and thoughtfully shaped, you could play this course a dozen times and not hit the same putt twice.

Highly recommended for all handicaps. I will be returning.

The location is beautiful and very picturesque. I went to Vicars Cross Golf club with my friend, who is a member, for a meal. It was amazing value for money, when you compare the menu to a cafe or restaurant in Chester centre. The food was all freshly prepared and served by very friendly and helpful staff. Everyone who works there has done such a brilliant job in making my visit so enjoyable. I would deffinately return and I highly reccomend the restaurant to anyone who is thinking of playing there.

Played in a fourball 3rd December for the first time here, 10.45 tee-off. Tremendous parkland greens for this time off year. I think they will be hard to beat for quality at this time of year. The greenkeepers and staff are doing a great job. The members are very lucky to have such a nice course in such good condition. From the pro-shop to the catering and bar staff we found very friendly and will definitely come back here many times.

Fantastic course

A well located and challenging course. Accuracy of the tee is key with many tree lined fairways. The reward for an accurate drive is the chance to go for one of the impressively quick greens which roll fast but true.

I used to be a member here and it was very good. Played in the summer and the improvements are so noticeable. Course was playing so well and the 18th is great. Par 3 from a raised tee down to where the outside seating area is. Perfect for a society or event golf. Also has a range there. Pro is a top bloke too.
