Played on the 18th march course in great condition for the time of year heard it was a dry winter course just didn't relise how dry it was, looking forward to coming back in September for the Gerry marsden golf day. Well worth a visit
Played the course on Sunday 11th March 2012 and was very pleasantly surprised to find a fair challenge and some spectacularly bonkers greens!
The course was in very good condition and was bone dry - a nice change at this time of year. It is severely undulating in places, but never so much as to make the walk feel arduous. The greens feature some extreme slopes and I would guess are as tough a test as you'll find in the summer when they reach top speed.
The clubhouse is comfortable enough, but during our visit the service was slightly sluggish and the food wasn't great. Still, nothing that would deter me from returning.
Certainly a good venue for your next society or club away day.
I think we found this course on a bad day. Weather wasn't great (It was February), course wasn't in great condition, welcome was "iffy", and my golf was ...... not good...
Nice clubhouse, good food, but won't rush back.
played as part of a society £30 for 18 holes with coffee and a bacon roll on arrival & steak pie chips and a chocolate fudge desert afterwards.
interesting course with a number of very difficult two tier greens which werent easy to read. most of the longer holes had quite wide fairways from the tee so there was room for error. the shorter par 4 holes on the whole the fairways were narrower were and less forgiving. the par threes were a decent test with a couple of the par threes on a quite a steep uphill tee shot
the scorecard didnt have a map of the course on the back (BIG BIG MISTAKE) as our final group went from the 9th green to the 15th tee and the tenth tee was through a wood and not particulary well sign posted. other parts of the course also suffered from the same peoblem and there was a lot of "doubling back" from greens to the next tee.
the 16th is classed as stroke index one which does involve a 200 yard carry from the tee but any decent player should do these without too much difficulty and then its a straightshot to the green. there is no way this should be SI1. however had it been wind against it would have been a different story. i would suggest the 13th which is around 540 yards was much more difficult
A decent day offering good value for money on the whole-the members were very friendly an i would play there again given the chance
A pleasant course with rolling fairways and good greens. Three notable holes are the par 5 13th and 18th, and the par 4 16th (SI 1)
The course is a reasonable test for medium handicap players.
The fairways and general condition of the course is first class..but the greens are a very big let down with absolutely no room for even a fractions error. The greens are hard,with absolutely no hold,very patchy (diseased??) and as a result produce an uneven roll.
If the greens were sorted out it would be a truly magnificent course.
Played on 28/10/05 with our Golf Society of 25 members on a windy day follwoing a week of wet weather. The fairways and greens were excellent.
Not a soggy patch on the course. The course is fairly tough but fair. There are a few blind shots and not playing the course before and without a strokesaver on sale, it became a bit of a lottery at times. There were a few longish walks between holes and some of the holes were open to the elements. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and the 3 course meal afterwards was excellent. We all agreed that Fordsham will be on our agenda for next year and I persoally will be going back to play with other friends. I am planning to go back in summer as none of the greens were flat and I would imagine would be extremely hard when dry and fast. All in all I would recommend a trip out to Frodsham for any golfer.
Fanstastic Golf Course -
1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th unchallenging for long drives with good chips possible birdie chances on all
5 a par 3 170 to the pin up a very steep slope
6 and 7 again easy holes and birdie chances fro long hitters.
the 8th is a medium lenghth par 4 but with a green hard to hit in two unless very accurately driven and 9 a short 100 yard par 3 easy to hit in one.
10 has long grass infront of tea although if it is avoided it is a very birdieable hole.
I was told eleven is the only hole that has never been birdied or better and i am not suprised a long drive and a long second would leave this 570 yard par 5 gleaming for another par.
12,13, are both quite easy holes especially for accurare hitters
14 a hard par 3 good accurate hitters may hit the green in one but poorley hit shots will be payed for.
15 a hard par 4 green in two is possible although easy to leave your approach short or long.\
16 the hardest hole on the course over a huge ditch is the best shot although it requires a floated 250 yard drive. approaches to the green are hard as the green is set down with two oak trees in the middle of the fairway accuracy is important 17 again is a difficult par 3 to hit in one although if done an easy birdie oppertunity - 18 the hole a par 5 - around 570 yrds and a large pond protecting the green big hitters may come away with birdies although safe play is the best option.
A real test of golf when the wind is blowing and the greens are dry. If you are a visitor and don't have 3 or more putts on a hole, you've done well. Hole 16 (SI 1) is a good test even with a good drive - beware of the tree in the middle of the fairway for the approach to the green. A good society course. Food and service is excellent.
Played in the company of mr Davies at this course and fully agree with his sentiments.A really fine test of golf and look forward to tackling it again as it made mincemeat out of me and my pals.Oh and a great pint of extra cold guinness at the nineteenth!
Played this course on a windy afternoon in April. First thoughts when entering the course where one of excitement. From the start the course is very demanding and is very well maintained. All fairways where like playing of greens and the greens where excellent. The rough was quite long so a good tee shot is required. Was very windy as this course is situated on the Mersey estuary but I would advise anyone to play this course. This course is very undulating and you will find you will be hitting at least two clubs more than you normally would as some green's are 30 to 40 feet above you. Will definatly play again. Beware of the 16th as I think it is the signature hole and needs a good carry to fairway.
