This was my first visit to Blackpool NSGC and it won’t be my last.
Booked the course expecting all the normal tees and greens to be in play with it being a sand based but we found a few temporary greens and tees.
The course held a fair bit of water and it was sodden underfoot which couldn’t be helped with the recent weather.
The course has the makings good course for a casual player as it’s very open and forgiving.
I can see a lot of potential in this course and although I wouldn’t want to be member I’d like to play it in summer when it’s dry, full length and all greens are in play.
A day in the wind
Really enjoyed the 11 holes that were open on a very wet day!
Superb course, will defo play again in summer.
Enjoyable round but part closed
Second time here, enjoyable course and generally good condition.
Disappointed to walk off first green to find sign saying holes 2-5 were not in play, would have been nice to know this when booking or upon arrival. Will come back again in future.
Nice course - at snails pace.
I played the course on a sunny October day. My first visit, the very helpful chap in the pro shop gave me a quick guide to where everything was. There is a practice net, a short game area and a putting green: the toilets are conveniently situated at the back of the clubhouse and accessible before you tee off at the 10th.
The course layout was easy to follow and the course was in good condition. There is as a bit of run on the fairways, if you managed to find them and there was enough variety of downhill, uphill and flat to keep you interested. The greens were true and consistent- I enjoyed putting on them.
However, the one major negative was the pace of play, I had a two ball in front of me and another two ball in front of them: the front pair obviously didn’t have a clue about course etiquette and spent the whole round taking several drives off every tee, leaving their bags/trolley in front of the green (which they had to retrieve after putting) and just not having any clue about what they were doing or having any awareness of their speed of play or how it affected everyone behind them. I enjoyed the course but not the experience: I would recommend playing here if you are in the area: but check to see how busy it is first!!
An enjoyable afternoon.
Played here for the first time on a lovely sunny late September afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed it. Checked in at the pro shop and the staff member was very helpful in explaining everything I needed to know. Turned up as a single golfer with the missus in tow for the walk, I joined up with a two ball behind me as it was a busy day and I thought I’d spend the afternoon waiting on every shot. Standing on the first tee the course just looks so wide open and invites you to tee it up and lash one down there. The course was in good condition overall, with pretty fair rough. The greens had been tined a few days beforehand and so consequently they were a little bumpy. Glad I joined up with my playing partners as there are a few blind shots and they helped giving me a heads up on the lines etc. Played ropey on the front nine but bucked up on the back nine and managed a birdie and few pars. Got a good deal on the green fees @ £21. Would like to play again now I have an idea of the course layout. One thing is because the course is so wide open the sense of distance perception I found difficult and it also made the greens look small. But that’s just me?
Decided to play this local course while holidaying in Blackpool.
Looked quite flat and lacking character on first appearance
Soon realised how wrong I was.
large greens playing well and some great signature holes
Made it a really enjoyable day
Blackpool. North Shore
Always like to play this links course once a year with my Mate Clive. We teamed up with Phil & Mike. Had a really good afternoon. Good course in great nick. Very windy but enjoyable. Good company. Trevor
This was my second visit here.
A played a few years ago and nothing really stayed with my about the experience.
All I remembered was it was in good condition and an open course with quick greens.
The condition of the course today was perfect. It was immaculate.
The course it’s self requires simple golf. Like all courses really. Just keep it in the short stuff. There’s no trees but the rough is punishing. It gives you a relaxing sense to unwind your shoulders and let rip, but I wouldn’t. It is a lovely course but not overly challenging. The walk is easy. The wind wasn’t howling today,, just a nice breeze that did make you think about club selection a little more.
We were stuck behind a two ball for 11 holes which was a bit frustrating. One of the lads I think might of been his first or second round. I know we all start somewhere so just plodded along behind them.
Members and the guy in the pro shop were very pleasant..I would Recommend the course to anyone. It is lovely. Not played many courses this summer where all the courses was immaculate as this one.
Great course, plush very tidy fairways and lightening fast greens that run true. Great test for all golfers with very deep rough all around the course and plenty of bunkers to catch your drives. Was surprised how cheap it was for the standard of course and will 100% be playing again.
Played today and the course was brilliant. Very well kept fairways and the greens are lightening fast and run very true. Very testing course with deep rough hugging nearly every fairway so need to be straight but makes it a great test for all golfers. Will definitely be going back on another trip to Blackpool.
very enjoyable round of golf.travelled alone and joined up oat the 1st tee with 3 members who were more than happy to accommodate me.very friendly in these strange times.course and greens were in excellent condition and well presented.some very difficult holes especially so on the back nine.loved all the par 3's.would definitely recommend and only 2 miles outside of blackpool tower.ideal for a golfing break.catering was very limited due to covid restrictions but all in all a very good day out
Great condition and friendly club
played here with my son yesterday for the first time and we were both made very welcome and the course was in fantastic condition
Fantastic course in mint condition. Member move round the course quick but was well worth the money
