Great Lever and Farnworth

The course was ok. There was no signage around the course so had no idea where we was going. No signs on the holes so when you got to it you still wasn't sure wether it was the right one. At one stage of round you have to cross a busy main road but it only told you with spray paint on grass ( good job it wasn't raining) had to ask someone whether we was going the right way. Was following 3 members but they decided to play the course the old way round so that threw us a bit and also caused a 20 minute wait on the 18th tee. I think it should be compulsory to play the course the right way round so as not to cause waiting on the tee's.
Clubhouse not open.

Needs some work

The locals were friendly and can't fault. The course however was very average. Greens bare and bumpy and the longer rough was very excessive. About 2-3 feet tall. Wouldn't be so bad if along way off fairways but within 5 yds. Forget looking for your ball. Sorry but won't be playing again.

Worst course I've played in 10 years

After 2 lockdowns & a period of good weather, there is really no excuse for bare & bumpy tees, bunkers with stones and no sand, greens with large holes & scrapes in them and poor uneven fairways.
Even at £15 this course is very poor value for money - I have genuinely played better municipals..
We won't be going back again.

Good course, slow play

Would definitely play again, perhaps when quieter. Too many booked on. Took 3 and a bit hours to play 10 holes due to speed of groups in front. Not the club's fault but meant we couldn't complete the round.

Good layout

Good layout of the course. Some really challenging holes. Busy as expected with golf courses re opening. Some of the greens are a in poor condition and there were some kids playing football on the bottom holes but that’s not the golf course fault

Disappointing

So looking forward to playing this course again since I’ve moved away, drove over 30 miles to play it, I do wish I knew the state of the course before I set off!!
Fairways now mowed daisies everywhere,
Rough ridiculous, so long even slightly off the fairways in some places more that knee deep no excuses get it mowed! Slower the pace of play down with everyone looking for balls!!
Tee boxes not numbers, no bins, markings etc
Then to top it off clubhouse shut on a bank holiday
Very disappointed

Value for money

Great value for money, I'm still fairly new to golf and today was the second time I visited here and I find it a good course. Its not to challenging and I like the fact the first hole is a par 3. First time I went they explained the course lay out and gave us a map which was great. This course is great for all players, it has a few par 3s,and some long holes.

First time here in 15 year's

Lovely little course, just needs a bit of tlc in places. Not a long course but some challenging holes. Will be lovely to play in the summer. Me and my Son will definitely be back.

Get what you pay for

Wasn’t impressed with the course, young lads running on the greens trying to steal balls. Couldn’t tell the difference between the rough and fairways at some points ! Greens where poor in areas. Unfortunately I won’t return to play this course Until the summer.

Great value for money

The average round of golf costs around £13-£26 depending on the tee off time and day! I have played here now on various days throughout the week and variable tee off times! And this great little golf course comes in at the lower end of £12 a round less then 70p per hole! And for the layout and accessibility it’s easily one of my favourite when you put everything into consideration!! One last thing, the course difficulty is aimed at all golfers so anybody will have a great day here
