Played the course last night twilight ticket £13.50 for 18 holes plus sandwich and chips- great value for money. Greens in good condition, not many on thoroughly enjoyed it.
This course is currently in dreadful condition and is well avoided. The course is generally very tatty and unkempt and has some of the worst bunkers I have ever encountered.
The green have previously been hollow tined but the holes haven't been fill in which leaves the greens very bumpy and very difficult to have any confidence on the greens. As other contributors have stated there are some significant works being undertaken at present.
It's a shame really because the shop and bar staff are very friendly. I will not be visiting this course again as there are far far better courses around the area.
Played this week - most fairways were rock hard, greens were like a doormat covered in sand. No chance of stopping any kind of shot on there, even pitching from 30-40 yds - nearly impossible to judge putting.
Played there last summer and the fairways were soft as carpet and the greens were nice, so may just need summer to get going.
Deal for £28, two people 18 holes and burger and chips to finish, so good value.
Played the course mid march after a days light rain, the course was wet all over, puddles on the greens and fairways. Pitchmarks not repaired on the greens aswell, will probably give the course one more chance in summer as there was potential. The food and beer in the clubhouse was top notch and great service
played for the first time today, flat course, fairways a bit wet, but thats after two full days of bad rain, will be great in the summer, bunkers were bad, but again after 2 days of rain cant complain, loved every minute of it, a few testing holes, greens were perfect, in my opinion a great course for the price and will certainly be playing there again ( tomorrow in fact )staff very courteous and friendly, and informed us of future offers...food was lovely, homemade burger a treat with plenty of salad, and agai n very friendly staff....overall a great course for the price,a hidden gem in fact...will be arranging a society day there for sure.....a few more pictures of the course on the website is sure to attract plenty more people...keep it up mersey valley, see you tomorrow.
Played the course a couple of weeks ago for first time since 2009
Just unbelievable now. Trees have grown, good definition and course was in very good condition
I play off 5 , and shot 79 on a calm day. A very good test of golf,and I would say it is now one of the best courses around
Cost me £22 for a weekend and worth it
The reviews are a few years old now and I would agree to some extent with their views. I played it a number of years ago and was not that impressed.
However some years on I would say it has improved a lot and is worth giving it a second chance. I would not regard it as an easy course and is more pleasing to the eye now that the trees have grown and give the course some shape.
I took our society last year and have booked again for this year as it went down well on the general condition of the course, friendly clubhouse and very reasonable rates.
Don't be put off, give it a try it's a good value for money club that will take 2 4 1's.
just finished playing mersey valley golf course.we were charged £15 each using 2 fore 1 voucher,even though it is £20 for a round! i asked the young lad why , but he didnt know. a lady in the back office came out to try and offer an explanation,but i think its just a way of them screwing you for an extra £5! course was ok,nothing special, worth the £15, lots of clover just off fairway where you WILL lose your ball! greens ok, didnt land in bunkers,but they didnt look too difficult.fairways full of weeds,but cut nice and short. tees were nice. small patches of casual water on fairway,but in fairness,it had rained heavy all night. a few ditches to fly,but club selection takes care of them.lots of young trees to avoid,but fairways wide enough to cope. It was a quiet day,no waiting, and invited a solo player to join us on the 5th.An elderly gent called bary, a recently new member, he seemed happy with the place.Barry left us at 9th,and we carried on.overall,not a bad course,but mix up with 2 fore 1 left a bad taste. some easy holes to play, so expect a couple of birdies,not sure why 14th is index 1, i would have put it at 17,but anyway..long par 3 to start back 9,15th is another par 3,with a pond just shy of green,better take extra 2 clubs here if wind picks up, i didnt! splash! might play course again,but its not in my top 20. didnt go in 19th,so cant comment,but it looked like a wooden cow shed from 18th green! tee it high, and let it fly. Tonto
was not impressed at all
very bland not very challenging at all
club house ok food quite good
as for price played on a 2 for 1 voucher
charged £15.00 each for two ball
found when leaving club house price per round was
£20.00 PER VISITOR so i would like to know how
we were charged £15.00 each interesting to find out
A bland and uninspiring flat golf course with the strangest clubhouse I have ever seen. Played there for the first (and last) time 3 days ago, and my first impression was a collection of fields with flags dotted amongst them! Far to expensive for what you get, especially as there are better courses within a 10 mile radius.
Played this course as a 2 ball under the 2for1 voucher.The course was in superb condition,the best i have seen it.The course is quite an easy walking course but there are some tough holes if you stray offline with trees and deep rough to contend with,as i found out to my cost.The staff and members are nice and friendly and there is a nice pint and bar food in the 19th hole,just to finish off a good day.All in all,a good course and they accept 2for1,bonus.There is also a security guard to keep an eye on things whilst you are playing,no need to worry about the motor.
Mersey Valley, located not far from Warrington town centre, is a relatively new parkland course with a host of decent holes.
We played there as a four ball on a Sunday, the pro shop was being refurbished so there was only a temporary reception which stocked just the basic essentials.
The course starts with a mid length par 4 with out of bounds to the left, a simple enough hole if kept straight.
Holes to look out for -
4th - Short par 4 which doglegs sharply to the left, longer hitters may favour an iron off the tee leaving a short iron in.
11th - Standard length par 4, a well placed drive is required short of a brook to a well protected green. Anything right might be lost.
The course is relatively flat and, unfortunately, rather uninspiring. The holes lack character and whilst the course has matured over the years, it's still a bit like a field with bunkers.
The clubhouse was a bit small but served a decent menu - it's looks a bit of a shack from the outside though, not sure what the architect was thinking when they designed it.
On a postive note however the greens were good and the tee's well manicured - each hole had a 15o yard marker as well as tee markers.
There are however better courses to play in the local vicinity.
i have played here twice in the last 2 weeks and have found the the course in good nick.
but as all the other comments have said ok for high handicapper but not to mid to low handicap would find it very easy.
club house and shop good but for a round of golf there are better courses for the same price
Ive played here a few times recently and found the course to be fairly uninspiring with many routine holes broken up with a few nice par 3s over water. The fairways are well kept, and the greens are generally OK, but one or two are quite worn in patches.
On the whole, I think it provides a reasonable round for a middle/high handicapper, but better players would find more of a challenge elsewhere. If, however, the wind is blowing it becomes much more difficult to post a good score.
great club with friendly employees and members, trees still yet to mature, but by no means an easy round og golf and i play off 10!
Quite flat and boring course. 1st & 8th fairways are a disgrace.The remainder are in good condition. There are ponds next to the first with the water level higher than the fairway!!! Could only see 3 greenkeepers!!! Rest of the course was in quite good nick. Members we spoke to are leaving this year due to deterioration of the course over the past couple of years. Clubhouse is like a barn. Changing and shower facilities very poor. Pro shop is quite good with some very reasonable prices. Food and drink expensive, but staff very friendly, apart from the General Manager (can't remember her name). She was slagging someone off in front of customers. Cost £25/round. I can say that I have played it, but never again.
A flat parkland couse with wide fairways and good greens. A lot of trees yet to mature will further enhance the course. As a 24 h'cap I found it a useful test but a low h'cap may well find it boring. Nice modern clubhouse with good facilities and well stocked pro shop. At £28 it was on the high side, but overall worth it.
