Nice Course

Obviously playing in November I didn't see it at it's best, but it was a well laid out track where you had to be accurate off the tee due to the tree lined fairways & hit the well protected greens with precision.
It feels a bit short & cramped to start with & a small brook protects a handful of the greens early on. However from the 5th onwards it starts to lengthen & open out & turns in to a good parkland course.
The greens & bunkers were superb, as good as anywhere for this time of year.
The welcome was excellent, every member said hello & a few even showed interest in me asking where I was from & if I'd enjoyed the course.
All in all a decent experience & a course I'd definitely like to re-visit in the summer.

Very nice.

Course in great condition, fairways, greens lovely, well worth the £26. This course is only 5 mins away from me, and I have considered becoming a member, but if you like playing all year round this is not the club! Very boggy, for quite a lot of the time, autumn-spring which is a great shame. If you want to play this course at it's best, summer is the time.

Played on 12th May.
Best course I’ve played this year and I’ve played 12 courses so far. Greens in excellent condition. Nice variety of holes. It’s a course you need to think about shot selection with strategic water in places.
I came with a society and had full breakfast which was great. I’ll be back. Great course

Great course, a little wet

Really nice course, but there was a lot of damp areas. Also the greens were not in good condition, hopefully they will be better by the summer.

Highly Recommended

From Stuart, the Club Pro, to the sausage and egg toastie, West Derby was fantastic. The course is fantastically maintained with lush, tree-lined fairways and freshly cut greens making it a pleasure to play. A flat and relatively short course, the small greens are well protected by strategically placed trees and bunkers, making your approach shots a real challenge. Well worth a visit.

Well worth a visit

We played on the Monday after the Open so were keen to play after being at Birkdale. It was our first time here and we were all pleasantly surprised as the photos on the website don't do the course justice. The front 9 is shorter making good use of the brooks. The back 9 is much longer and tree lined. The greens were in very good condition, a nice speed and true. Excellent value for money so we'll definitely be back.
