A great 18 holes, 3rd hole is across the main road and has no indication due to signs been stolen as the course is open to public access. Don't let that put you off as the groundstaff are brilliant and the course is in very good condition.
Loved it might even sign up to membership 😁
So I currently have a membership at a other course but fancied a change for my birthday, so booked this course as it's only round the corner from my house, over the years the council had let it get in bad way but wow since its been taken over its change massively compared to how I remember it, that much I might even sign up to a membership here 😁😁
I hear the Council are trying to close half the course - PLEASE DON'T!! It's a great layout and a good test of golf and with a tiny bit more work (e.g. cutting the greens more frequently) it would be stupendous.
I played here 50+ years ago as a Junior Member and have so many happy memories of the course - let it prosper!!
A good deal.
Played this for next to nothing£. Excellent Alistair Mackenzie course, Council owned, small details neglected.. Good test of golf, first 9 better than back 9.
Council tying to sell it off for development! What a waste.
Overall a good course to play
Fair set up with some tricky holes
Greens were in good nick
Tees a bit rough
Been a few times and enjoy my rounds. Really good layout. Staff are always friendly too.
This course is really well looked after considering the recent hot weather, clearly sun damaged which is a shame but can’t be helped, Very busy day that I went, maybe overbooked, I was behind two groups of four which made for very slow play, and as a result there was a fair few golfers waiting behind me, but overall it was a good round of golf
Drunk and Disorderly
We had a lovely game up until the 17th. Course played well . Irritating players following who didn't seem to understand that they had to wait for us to be out of the way before playing. Then had the cheek to have a go because one of our drives went wayward. We did shout but only when we knew where the ball was going, if they had been further back then no issue. However 2x drunk yobs ruined the game, taking flag off 17th and then one trying to interact while staggering about. Could do with some kind of fence between course and public park to keep yobs away. Then tried to order drinks afterwards to be told we could but had to drink them within 10mins. Advice would be to play earlier in the day , good value for money as lovely course but be aware of lack of etiquette.
The course is a superb layout with lots of challenging features. And its cheap
But its biggest downside is it looks neglected, no takes in any of the bunkers, lots of bare soul round the greens, and the 2nd hole green has what looks like a land drain that's dank going right through the middle of it.. Its stuck a nice layout of a course just need more maintenance and create taken of it!
we like Blackpool park golf course it is a superb challenge & kept in great condition as long as we can get a golf buggy we will play it regularly
played many times, it is a great fairly challenging course but suitable for all. very well maintained at the moment, this is one area that has historically let it down but this year, 2022, it has been fantastic. will be a big loss if it does get closed down as proposed.
