Good course for the value. Can be very slow as if you get a slow group in front and they don't play you through it can take over 5 hours to get round. Could maybe improve the 1st tee times of people teeing off.

What a fantastic course! I have played lots of courses around the north west paying over £40 a round and the condition of this £7.50 course was superb!!! Its a very easy course! We reached some of the par 4s with 3 irons and there are no par 5s but all in all you actually couldnt beat it for the price! Will defiantly be playing it again 5/5

This course is great value for money. Played on a Saturday morning a couple of weeks ago and it was £12. Had to tee off from the mats but that's fair enough seeing as it was still early March. Greens were in pretty good condition for the time of year and the fairways are nice to hit off. Don't expect any of the niceties of other courses - for instance the pro shop is very basic. But for £12 you really couldn't ask for more. Not the longest of courses but there are a couple of nice par 3's at 8 and 18 and some decent mid-length par 4's on the back 9. Definitely worth a try for a cheap round.

Allerton Park Golf Club. An absolute gem of a coarse, hidden away in beautiful parkland that is starling contrast to it's surrounding urban area. The first four holes are a tad flat and dull, but once onto the fifth it opens up into a golf environment that could leave many private courses looking like a farmers field.
The greens are in fantastic condition not just by municipal standards, but by any standards, and are a real credit to the greens keepers. And for about nine quid (five at twilight) you get all the benefits of a privet coarse, and you don't end up wearing stupid trousers, drinking in wine bars, or playing squash on a Tuesday with someone called Jeremy. Bonus..

Joined dudley golf club here at allerton this year , great club and very friendly even for a beginner like me off 24. course is very good considering how busy it is , can score well if you can hit it straight (i can, t yet though)
also must be the best value golf you can find in merseyside ten pounds even at weekends.

Allerton is the one course that every golfer in Liverpool know's and appreciates. It's a fine course wirth some great holes to boot.
Being municpal it tends to get busy, especially on weekends. In the old days players would have to get there early and put a ball in the 'trough' however nowadays a booking system operates from the pro shop.
On arrival at the course you'll find a clubhouse with a small pro shop which stocks some decent equipment.
There are two courses at Allerton, a 9 hole and 18, the 9 measuring in the region of 1800 yards. The 18 is relatively short, measuring 5494 yards with a par of 67. The course is a classic parkland affair with not one hole the same.
Holes to look out for -
3rd - Long par 4 at 461 yards, the fairway is very narrow with out of bounds to the left all the way. A well placed fairway bunker will swallow many a ball. The green is protected with 2 bunkers.
8th - Great par 3 over a valley, the green must be found to have any chance at birdie. Protected by four bunkers.
14th - Narrow yet short par 4 were a drive over the trees to the right favouring an easier approach shot. The green is two tiered and well protected, with out of bounds to the left.
There are no par 5's on the course, the third being the longest.
The facilities include a putting green and chipping area, with the 9 hole course being a form of practise as it's quite short. There is also a cracking butty van after the 8th hole on the 18 hole course, providing refreshments.
The downside to Allerton is the fact that its so busy - on some occasions there have been 2 groups on each tee for the first couple of holes. If you can get a game on a weekday your in for a treat.

Nice course! Nice day out for you and your mates for a game of golf. A testing course with some adventurous holes. Sadly no par 5's but the other holes make up for that. This course tests the short game as the greens are tough and plenty of bunkers around. This is not an easy course and not a real beast of a course. Course is a god value for money an excellent day's golf at the price. Overall I love this course and I play here most weeks and I love it would reccomend to players looking for a challenging course...!

i play allerton 2 or 3 times a week.It it a nice course but is quite short after the first 3 holes excepted the par 3 9th and par 3 18th both holes over 230y.The most disappointing thing is the fact there are no par 5s.So no easy birdies out there.

Well I have played it a few times , however it is vastly overcrowded and takes forever to play due to par 3s being back to back. On the other hand its a generally decent course but some improvements are required around the booking and tee off system as this can be costly in a time factor sense.

not the longest course in the world, with most holes just a driver and wedge. the greens are fairly slopey and were pretty slow at the time i played. i really enjoyed the par 3 8th as it was only small but it is still a test to get your par. the 'butty bar' was lovelly as was the course itself.

Played Allerton for the first time last Sunday with a friend. Finding a parking space was a task in itself.
1st tee must of had appx 25 people behind us waiting to tee (vitually all 4 balls) took us over 5 hours for the round.
The course DOES NOT have any par 5's but quite a few par 3's, par 67 total.
The course is in general a gently undulating parkland course, which is quite open. Many of the holes are quite interesting and would give high/mid handicap a nice test. The fairways were in good condition for a municipal, plenty of tightknit grass.
The greens were in poor condition, with many bald spots apparent, and not very smooth. I would love to play this course when the greens are up to scratch, because the greens are fairly slopey
and the pin placements we played to were a definate challenge.
Worth a visit on a weekday, but be prepared for a long round on a weekend.

What a great course! I have to comment because the people here mention `booking 2 weeks in hand` `No par 5`s` and `the buttie bar`. Well I play this course weekly and you can phone and book a game the DAY BEFORE! Also people who say `no par 5`s` do not know this course, or played it once, a long time ago in a dream. The first three holes are all par 5`s. And as for the `buttie bar`, it is good, but if its food you want, go to a resteraunt instead! This is a well cared for course with a large ground crew but sometimes the course is a victim of its own popularity. Saying that, it is seldom closed due to bad weather. My favourite is the par 3 on the 8th, were you play an 9/8 iron off the tee, accross an empty dyke, onto a green that slopes off on all sides, and is surrounded by bunkers, were an audience often builds up because of the buttie bar to make it that much more daunting and exiting. As for me myself.... I love this course summer or winter.

The course is excellent in the summer months, but one may need to book a round as far as two weeks in hand. the course becomes extremely busy and can take as long as six hours to complete a round.

Very heavily used parkland course which provides a good day's golf. No par 5's unfortunately but some interesting par 3's. Good tea-van after the 8th green!

THE OPENING 3 HOLES ARE VERY TOUGH,WHICH LEAVES 15 REASONABLE EASY HOLES.IT IS A GOOD COURSE FOR DRIVING AND YOUR SHORT GAME.

Tough opening 3 holes which lead to a very easy last 15 holes with the exception of the 14th. In summer the greens are very hard but run very true. Not greatly maintained with large queues building up each day. The burger bar on the 9th tee is a welcome snack to relieve the frustrations of waiting on each tee for ages. Rounds are overpriced for the quality you get.
