Played here with society this week. What a golf course not unlike Merion for the us open.
Wander off the narrow fairways and your chipping out from trees cos you have no shot to the small well protected greens. That applies to almost every hole. 5 par 3''s and what holes, the 2nd tiny target 180 yds dead left bunker right, the 4th 110 yds all u can see is sand n water but don't go long!!! 8th 180 yds two tier green pond left and sand everywhere then there is 12 and 18 which you play straight to the clubhouse patio and an audience. Dont forget 6th 7th and 14th all par fours all well under 400 yards but what holes.. superb if you are straight. Just over 6000 yards an easy walk but a great test of golf for every level proof that if a course is well designed it does not have to be 7000 yards to be a good test.In addition the clubhouse, catering and members were superb and we cant wait to get back next year. A hidden gem highly recommended.
We played Haydock on the last day of April 2012, following several days of almost constant rain. Thankfully on the day of the event the rain stopped and the sun came out - in the morning there was a fair bit of standing water - but by the afternoon the course had drained pretty well. The greens deserve particular note as they were excellent despite the deluge they'd suffered.
In general the course is a fair challenge, but the front nine are undeniably superior to those found after the turn. Where the front nine feature nice elevation changes and sculpted green surrounds the back nine is flat and uninspiring.
All in all a decent course, and worth a visit, but certainly not the best in the area.
I have played this course on 3 occasions and generally it is a fair test of golf with some interesting holes, particularly on the front 9. Previously I have found the course in excellent condition but this time (last week in March) the fairways were extremely muddy and the greens soggy to say the least. I would suggest it is best to play it in a dry summer. On a brighter note, the professional's shop was well stocked, worth a visit with the staff most helpful. The catering was excellent - a good carvery.A fantastic course in a fantasic location, though the views are not as impressive as some of the courses locally. Drive the ball straight here, otherwises you will not know where it has gone. A tough course because of the start, plenty of par 4's over 400 yards in the first seven holes, the 7th being doubleably difficult being a blind tee shot onto a narrow fairway.
Plenty of holes on the back 9 are blind tee shots and greens you can't see the putting surface which means you need to play the course on at least once so you know where to aim. The lighthouse hole is the feature hole and justifiably so, a blind dogleg left tee shot, with a hog back fairway, and the green sitting next to the lighthouse.
The 9th hole 'Wembley' is a lovely short par 3. The tee is about 50ft above the hole with bunkers completely surrounding the green, picking the right club is essential, not a hole for the faint hearted.
i played here in what was supposed to be a school match so it was free, but when the other school never turned up, me and my fellow golfers headed out to play the front nine. the course was designed by james braid so i was looking foward to a good quality course. unfortuantely i was very dissapointed. all the tees were in what can only be described as dire condition as a blade of grass was scarce so we were just playing off mud. only few of the greens actually did roll true. but holes were very interesting and nicely varied. not too much trouble off the tee as i found my drives piercing all but one fairway. rough not too penal and bunkers very easy. favourite hole was uphill par 5 with about 180 yard carry up a 30 foot ascent. changing rooms were even worse than a muni's and pro shop was a bit of a joke.
Hi my name is Phil Sumner, i am a member at this beautiful course. I enjoy playing it as there are many trees which do tend to challenge me. Although i still pull a nice shot out of the bag. I strongly recomend this course. especially with its great services such as the cook. Thanks a lot for your time,
Haydock park is a wonderful golf course i enjoy playing every time, i have birdied every hole on the course now! and i play of 28
Haydock park is a fantastic parkland course.
There are many challenging holes some may challenge the most experienced golfers.
Great value and a challenge for all ages.
Haydock Park is one of the best courses in the north west.
It is a fine parkland couse that was formed in 1877.The course in not long but it is a very testing track with many traps to catch the wayward shot.
Play the course and see for your self.
I played this course yesterday for the first time and I can't believe I've never had the opportunity to play it earlier. It's a beautiful parkland course with some very testing holes with plenty of 'out of bounds' for any wayward drives. The greens are arguably the best I've ever played on ANYWHERE, and can't wait to play again here, hopefully in the not too distant future.
I'm a Juinor member at haydock golf course playing of 13 and i'm 14 i'd like to star of saying the 6th is easy i par it every time but i hit it fairly straight but not to far. But at haydock its all target golf so if you like pulling out the driver every time and giving it a good smack and hiting it anywhere it not a good golf corse for you anyway. Thank for your comments about the course.
Brilliant golfing day out.Suberb facilities, polite/helpful staff staff and best of all a wonderful golf course. Key holes are the par 4's of the 6th,9th,and 13th. Golfers any ability can play and enjoy this course. Thumbs up from me!
