Tight fairways and super fast greens.

This course is very good. Has tight fairways which I found quite challenging. Another feature is that you find some, not all of the greens are very very fast. I think the more you play it then you will get used to this. Its very different than other courses I play and that's what I really like.

Another knock at a great course

Having played the course about 8 times over the year's, most of which was, with my Dad who was a past member. That was the old course layout.
I came a few month's out of lock down with my son and we both said it was lovely but would play better after some good sun.
Yesterday I came with my good friend from Blackburn, his first time playing at Great Lever.
We both had a great day and thoroughly enjoyed playing, apart from me, who hit a sweet last tee shot on the 18th and forgot there was a pond right in front of the green.
It didn't hamper our day and made up for it with an ice cold pint of Madri on the 19th.
Staff and members where all very friendly and accommodating.
Will definitely be back before winter.

First visit

Fantastic course, best greens I have played all year, it was hard going playing on the hottest day on record but the course made it worth the effort. The course condition was fantastic and there are some fantastic golf holes on the course and at £14 it was a fantastic deal, can’t wait to play it again

Great day

Lovely course, greens and fairways are in great condition, we got there early for a quick pint and spoke to a few members, all very friendly, we got advised to make sure we stayed out of the rough, but as we found out most of the rough was knee height, a few lost balls but still would definitely recommend

Layout and condition

I was disappointed with the layout. It is difficult to find several holes. Signage is poor for some holes. One or two holes are too adjacent to others. Even parts of the fairways are corrugated in places and the hard surface causes shots to deviate so far that I lost 6 balls

Course in tip top condition, fairways and greens lovely, if I had any negatives all that would be is the rough is to deep not only no chance of finding your ball but unplayable if you did, get that sorted out and I would say fantastic

Good course

Bit of confusion with the gps on my watch, so had to use a laser for distancing, had to cross a busy road twice during the round. Other the that the course was in very good condition and the staff were friendly, greens pretty fast, good day had.
