Lovely round on a lovely course!

Second time of playing Wirral and wasn't disappointed. It's a lovely heathland course, not long, but tests accuracy and also a good variety of holes. It was in very good condition although the greens were quite slow as they had been treated and not cut, but first week of August is usually a greens maintenance time so no complaints. Weather was great and the members we spoke to were very friendly and hospitable. Stayed for a couple of drinks afterwards too.
Love the layout and will definitely be back there again!

Short course but straight hitting required.

I can’t recommend this course highly enough. Although the course is short it requires straight hitting to avoid the heather alongside the fairways. Course was in excellent condition, the greens were mid-paced but true. The clubhouse has recently been renovated and the bar has been taken over by ‘Gallaghers’. Members and staff were friendly and welcoming. It was a great day all round, can’t wait to return using Golf Now discounted green fees. Being local, I could be tempted to join the club.
Highly recommended on all categories.

Tight Course, Good Layout, Poor Greens

We finished our round in 3 hours 45 minutes which for a 4 ball with 2 who haven't played it before was good. Also helped by the fact it's a short course and there were no par 5's.
The course is well laid out with some very tight driving holes although I didn't need to use my driver that often.
Unfortunately the greens were in a pretty awful state which was a shame as the last time I played there they were good. We were chatting to a member in the local pub after our game and he was saying the green staff had put something on the greens that had badly affected them and that he thought they were going to be bad for the entire summer.
Everyone on and off the course was very friendly.

The course is in fabulous condition and although it lacks a par 5 it is still challenging.

Nice short course

Lovely little course.
Very slow on the day, was very busy. (Womens competition)

My day was made when a lady member made a passive aggressive comment at my friend for hitting a provisional ball on a par 3 "are you in a serious competition, hitting2 balls?" It was hilarious for me. Especially as my chum was upset and his game went down the pan...

Course in great condition and lovely bar area.

Greens

The greens were in terrible condition, needed at least two cuts and over half the greens required significant work to make them playable. Such a shame, as otherwise the course was in good condition

Straight off the tee

A thinking golfer's test. The course rewards accuracy and traditional golfing skills rather than brute force.

Great course

Lovely course in largely excellent condition, the greens in places had a little sand on the and were undergoing repairs but it didn't take away from the experience at all. Our 4 ball went round in just over 3 hours. Enjoyable round

Golf at Wirral

Reasonably flat and very interesting course. Most par 4s are reachable for a mid handicapper so if you keep the ball straight you can score well. Had a great time

Really good.Friendly members Very tight! Be accurate

Great course, local to me. Played a few times before. Couple of tips…be VERY accurate, the course is tight and any wayward shots can be dangerous….as I found out as I was nearly hit twice. Challenging holes and some nasty pin positions (which makes it more fun!) Great value on GolfNow. Make sure you check out the clubhouse bar Gallaghers .

Perfect spring morning

I needed a quick round at an enjoyably testing course near Liverpool and got it at the Wirral Golf Club. It is a short course - no par 5s - but one that demands accuracy off the tee and a strong short game to score well. The weather was perfect, the greens were mainly excellent, and I’ve never experienced so friendly a club. Highly recommended.

Fantastic course

The course is fantastic, I really enjoyed my self, the only problem I had was a four ball holding everybody up I think they were members. No one was getting let through it was a joke so ignorant, i did end up joining a husband and wife they were lovely people.. I’ll defo be going again hopefully I won’t get held up this time.
