Dull as ditchwater
Jun 2021 • Friends
Most of the greens were awful.... My lawn is better. Bare patches, wet sticky mud, goose droppings everywhere. Hoes are just straight and underwhelming.... The only good thing to say is that it is cheap.

Great if you want to take a kid out for their first game but other than that, save your cash and play somewhere else if you play golf for any other reason.

Friendly public course, we found it in good condition with nice greens. Good value compared to the extortionate prices the private courses around here charge.

Southport Golf Links versus Southport Old Links
Nov 2019
Please don’t confuse this course with Southport Old Links, which is a private Golf course in the north of Southport.

Good, but seems to be going down hill a bit.

This used to be the best municipal golf course ive ever seen. But its quite clear the local council have cut back on its funding. Played two rounds and not a green keeper in sight. Obvious signs of under care/funding.

The worst place Iv ever visited.
Jun 2019 • Solo
The attached picture is of the 9th “green” and whilst the whole green is not like this it’s actually not far from the pin !! And that sets the tone for the whole course. I nipped for a quick round Sunday afternoon as most places where busy, I rang ahead and the place sounded quiet ... no need to book ... now I know why!Played the first hole and knew I wasn’t going to be blown away ... so on to the second ... wasn’t a driving hole so decided on a 3w , headcover off and tee’d it up to crunch it dead straight down the middle over a mound..Great !!! Il walk up and play my next shot, 10 minutes I spent searching for my ball, and too this day I still don’t know where it is... I could of spent all afternoon looking for it. It’s hard to know what is fairway and what is rough the place is a dump I’m afraid to say. There is no such thing as a tee box , just over grown grass , mud and weeds. Really 18p would of been too much to pay , never mind 18 pounds !!! Although the other people seemed to be getting on with it and playing, I was in total disbelief I can only assume they have never played elsewhere and have no expectation of what a course should look like. I wouldn’t go back if you paid me and the happiest moment was walking off at the end. And I wouldn’t rate it one out of 5 it’d be zero ... I had to click something to submit this review.

Best municipal golf course i have played on
Jul 2018 • Friends
Whilst it doesn't rank with most private golf courses, as a municipal its top table. Very generous fairways so great for the high handicapper. Seems to improve as the years go by.

Saturday golf say

I don’t really understand these reviews. It’s almost as if nobody knows what an acceptable golf course is. The golf course is absolutely shocking. Fairway full of white daisies to help you lose you ball straight down the fairway. Greens were boarding on unplayable, tuffs of grass in places and chunks of grass missing on the green. Shane Warne would be proud to bowl on them the amount of spin he would get. from the 11th to the 17th is as enjoyable as cutting the grass at my house. Straight up, par 3 across and back down and repeat. £18 is a rip off when there are courses cheaper in far better condition relatively close by such as Kirkby Valley.

Enjoyable Spring visit
Apr 2019 • Friends
I have played Southport Golf Links several times in the past, but this was my first visit since The Park Golf Club began offering a package, and what great value it was! On arrival we were expecting bacon barmcakes and a brew. We were served a Full English, freshly cooked and piping hot, absolutely delicious.
Then out onto the course. OK, it is a municipal course, and in Springtime the greens are not at their best, but it is a very enjoyable golf course to play at any time of year. The sandy base makes for a well drained track and the ponds support a wide range of attractive birds, with innumerable goslings if you time it right!
After an enjoyable afternoon, it was back to the comfortable and very hospitable club house. I think we paid £20 for our day out - money well spent!

Midweek round

Only £15.50 for a round of golf!! Opted for a buggy (£20). Course was in descent condition. Lots of birds on the course due to the nature reserve next door. Could do with some new markers for the yellow tees.
