Great day of golf had by all at Hillside, and the facilities and golf course impressed us all. Best of all, the back nine at Hillside is as good of a 9 hole stretch as you can find anywhere in the world of links golf!

Really lovely course, some great holes, some of which have almost a Turnberry-like feel. Great staff and the members were both welcoming and very friendly. Definitely a cut above formby. Only reason not 5* was the cost which was high (over £100/round) but all the courses on this coast are overpriced imo. It's worth playing - we played it twice... More

I have played this Course on many occasions and each time I prepare I get excited because I know what a treat I am in for. This Course is outstanding, the presentation has always been immaculate and the back 9 are truly spectacular, thats not to say that the front 9 does not hold its own. The Course would,without doubt,be... More

On a recent tour of the north west we were fortunate to be able to play Hillside. Although an early tee time we were able to get some coffee served by a really accomodating steward. The first few holes arn't to inspiring and there is a very usefull halfway house wich gives you time to reflect on your performace so... More

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.
