Forget the other golf clubs in the town of Southport, this is the best. The course is immaculate even in December. What was that famous comment about the back nine. It has ambiance. The clubhouse staff are friendly. The chef, Jason, a joy. The club are very lucky to have him. As a member, I suppose I am a little... More

Great reception with coffee and perfectly cooked bacon butties. Although we had some rain on the first 3 holes, the state of the course and the surroundings made you forget the poor weather. The course was absolutely great with perfect greens. Although I did not have one of my best days I really enjoyed playing here. After the game we... More

The warm welcome on arrival heralded a day that I and three friends will never forget. The front nine is an interesting yet challenging experience but when you reach the back nine the experience level goes up a few notches. I have played golf on some of the best courses in the UK but the back nine at Hillside is... More

A very warm welcome. Good food and hospitality. The golf course is fantastic two differing nines both in great condition. Well set out in perfect golfing country. The back nine through and around the dunes is spectacular. The tenth in as pretty a par three as you will find.

A very warm welcome and not stuffy at all like many top courses. Course was well presented. Greens were excellent and the back 9 was simply outstanding and a MUST PLAY. Even though I hit far too many fairway bunkers still enjoyed! Could be played by all standards as long as you choose you tee blocks carefully

When indulging my favourite pastime I do so with two intentions. Firstly I seek to conquer the course, to beat whatever it can throw at me and to post as low a score as possible given the circumstances. Secondly I look to be wowed. I want to take something away from places I can hold on to, something to enthuse... More
