What the club says: The course has a par of 69 with only two par 5’s and five par 3 holes.

The Ladies course has a par of 70 with the 2nd hole allocated par 5 status.

The first six holes chart the perimeter of the course and any wayward shot left will see you finish out of bounds. Another feature is that many of the more difficult holes (as reflected by their stoke index) come early in the round.

It is particularly important in Match Play at Widnes to get off to a good start, since five of the first six holes have a stoke index of 9 or less. Although the homeward nine holes contain three par 3’s, this nine also contains the longest hole, plus a set of three finishing holes that has ruined many a good round.

Nice course, but very tight!

The layout of this course is very cramped to say the least. The crack of golf balls can be heard all over and shouts of Fore very common.
Saying that, it is a good test, enjoyable and in good condition.

Excellent

Tight, Challenging & excellent course, very well looked after with fast green. Had a late tee off so it was only £11 per round, clubhouse was closed by the end of the round but I have heard it is spot on inside.

Very tight course not much use for a driver if you can't keep it straight!!

Greens very close to next tees so could imagine it to be a very long round if course was busy.

Hard to navigate around if a visitor.

Lovely course in very good condition. Course and greens dry and drained well after rainfall last night. Greens moderate / fast speed, dry, well maintained, consistent, no pitch marks or misuse. Well looked after, a pleasure to see. Tee boxes in good condition. Well maintained. Tee locations a little strang. If new to the course (my second time) be very aware of some crisis crossing with Tee locations crossing over other fairways. One or two are hidden and you just can't see when your Teeing off. Tees and greens are all close (very close in some places!) to each other. Much course management and playing etiquette required. Fairways are mainly straight and narrow, uncomplicated really, but shots must be straight to find fairways. Never found a bunker, but they appeared well looked after, but sand very firm and compact in some. An irons course for my liking, my party never used driver once due to narrow tree lined fairways. Fairways close to each other so need constant vigilance with balls flying through trees and rickotcheting, which some golfers may find frustrating. Only a single practice net available for warm up. Need another. But least there is a net. Practice putting green available, did not use, appearance looked good though. Pro shop very friendly and welcoming. Did not visit Clubhouse on this occasion. Cost was £25 each via Tee Times, would not pay the going £30 visitor price as there is better value for money around at that price. On the whole, a lovely course in a nice setting. I do recommend and will visit again if Tee Times prices are right.

Short tree lined course where tees and greens can be quite close to one another. The course was in very good condition, greens were fast and true with the bunkers being adequate. The pro shop wasn't open either before or after my round, but a short trip to the bar to pay my £20 Green fee was enough to get me on my way. A course I will play again.
