What the club says: Originally designed by Tom Morris, Wallasey is a worthy test of golf, which is due in part to the prevailing north westerly winds and variety of holes made all the more interesting by the natural undulations of the terrain. In 1914, Dr. Frank Stableford became a member and on the 2nd tee stands a plaque erected to commemorate the place where he devised the point scoring system that bears his name.

The real star of the Wirral!

Everyone generally goes to the Wirral to play Royal Liverpool, home of the Open. Whilst that is a great course as well, Wallasey is the true star of this region. We played both courses in successive days and can say without any doubt that all four of us were blown away with the quality and challenge of Wallasey. What a course! The first is an unassuming start and really is no indicator of the true course hidden behind rolling grass covered dunes and undulations. And walking through the gap from the 3rd green to 4th tee, there's really nothing that prepares you for that, a simply wonderful moment that I've experienced on very few golf courses. Has to be seen with your own eyes to understand why I enthuse about it so much. There are some holes on this course that will test the very best low handicappers. It's not a course I would recommend for higher handicappers who don't have ball control. I found it was pushing my abilities as a 20 handicap golfer. This course demands accuracy and the greens punish weaker putters like myself.

All in all, this course is up there with the very best you will play. We paid ?70 as the winter rate but we had a summers day in February, so were incredibly lucky. ?70 felt like incredible value to be playing this course. Make a special trip to play Wallasey, you absolutely won't be disappointed.

Some truly exhilarating tee shots.

We played Hoylake day 1 and Wallasey day 2 - what a great contrast for 2 outstanding but quite different links courses. All of us enjoyed Wallasey a bit more ...primarily due to the views. There are some amazing elevated tees especially at 4 and 17 which are absolute breath-taking (no joke)...like nothing I've witnessed ever. And some really good elevated greens on 1, 3, 10, 11.
What I really loved was how many other links courses this course reminded me of. It is so varied...Like Formby Ladies (Wallasey's 2nd hole), Formby Mens (Wallasey's 5th), Pennard (Wallasey's 11th), Saunton West (Wallasey's 12th - we ALL took photos of this hole!!!), Formby Mens (13th), Royal St Davids (16th), Burnham & Berrow (on the amazing 18th).
> This course is excellent!
Only gripe is a few of the tees were brought way forward on the front nine . Especially on 3rd and sadly the 339 yard 6th was reduced to a mere 195 yarder (so felt a bit of cheat birdying it!)
Like Hoylake there were loads of the one foot length green mats around for you to play your fairways shots off in order to protect the fairways.
We payed £70 to play ....which is a tad steep especially for the aforementioned forward tees ....but on a Monday you could use a county card (£36) which is an absolute steal for a course of this quality.
For sure we'll be back to play here in the future!

Fantastic

I was fortunate to be allowed courtesy to play here being a BIGGA member, what a great track, probably the strongest wind I've played in which in all honesty added to the experience. Warm welcome from pro and Club staff. The course and greens were brilliant

This course has it all for me. A lovely opening hole, a great 18th finishing in the shadow of the clubhouse, all year round golf and with the wind and the weather you never have the same round twice.
I love it here and however well or often you play it never gets tired.

The course is in wonderful condition. Greens a tad slow. Areas around the greens are well defined with run off areas, which I find good. Clubhouse could do with a refurb, but is very friendly and welcoming.
