Had a cracking day out at Wallasey in early December 2009. Was a windy and increasingly wet day but really enjoyable nonetheless. Classic links course, right by the sea but not visible from all but a few fairways, par 5 4th being the one that stands out for its perfect sea view. Tough scoring on a great range of holes, from blind second shots around doglegs into well protected pins to great par 3's inviting you to attack the flag or hit some deep bunkers in the attemp - glad to say I managed to hit the dancefloor! Great pro shop and clubhouse was a gem, loads of history here for anyone interested in that. Very friendly members, none of them scared of a little winter weather! I'd go back here any time!

"The Home of Stableford" is a magnificent links track. Many superb holes but the 4th, 12th and 17th stand out as classics and the finishing stretch of holes are as tough as it gets. Elevated tees or greens abound on the dune stretch and even the flat part of the course requires sensible strategy to score well. The deep rough is extremely punishing as you would expect. The club members and staff were extremely friendly and took time out to chat to our group even though they had just held a funeral reception that afternoon for a past club captain. Visit Wallasey - you will not be disappointed.

I have played golf on the Wirral for over 25 yrs and this is the best course in the area. When we went in August 2007 the green were very true and even paced and all the holes are a great challenge. Even the middle of the round which used to be a bit bland, now has a tricky par 3 and a new long par 5 which requires three very good shots. It is difficult choice which of the 2 9s are better as both the beginning and end of the round have a dramatic and very tough stretch of holes. Accuracy and length off the tee are a real advantage.

I played Wallasey a couple of years ago and recall it to be an excellent test of golf played over an old, windswept links. The greens were fantastic, as was the course in general.
Its not difficult to see why it was used as the final qualifier for the 2006 Open; the holes require strategy and concentration from tee to green with a variety of blind shots, a great challenge for all levels of golfer.
The clubhouse afterwards provided a very welcoming pint in rather old fashioned but exceptionally informal surroundings.
Wallasey is a must for any links fan and for those who wish to play the game like it was meant to be played.

Played this excellent links course in late April and I found it to be in first class condition. Vitually every hole has its own characteristics, the greens are difficult to read and a number of them require approach shots to a high elevation. The par 3 16th (193 yds) requires an precise tee shot otherwise a double bogey or worse beckons. The views from the high tees, particularly over Liverpool Bay, are spectacular and when the wind blows, which it usually does, it is a real test. This course is well worth a visit and worthy of being an Open qualifier.

I played this course in late May 2005. The course required every club in your bag. Many
picturesque holes with the par 5, 5th along the
ocean. This course also featured well bunkered
holes especially the par 3 holes. Members were
very friendly to us.

Wallasey Golf Club was only the second golf course I ever played when I first visited England on a golfing holiday, in 1997. I returned in August 1998, and again in August 1999, and have played the couse now seven times. It ranks as my all time favorite golf course, any where I have played. The vistas are great, it's challenging, especially in the wind, and the members I've met while playing and having a pint, on the veranda, overlooking 18 green, are real gentleman. I'm looking forward to returning in August 2004.

a great links course, but one of the toughest i've ever played. some shots are played blind as you cannot see were your your ball is dropping! The fairways are pretty tight, with just 5 yards of the short stuff in some areas. Take plenty of balls!

Wallasey is a classic links, originally designed by James Braid. The first Stableford competition was played here in May 1932, the system being devised by Dr. Frank Stableford, a past captain of the Club. In June 2000 the Club will host the Qualifying rounds of the Amateur Championship, to be held at nearby Royal Liverpool ( Hoylake ).
The links features in Donald Steel's "Classic Golf Links of Great Britain and Ireland" and is described as "quite exceptional" in Ronan Rafferty's "1000 Best Golf Courses in G.B. & I."
Play is possible all year round, and the summer months see links golf at its best with tight lies and firm greens forcing the player to play low run - up shots to combat the strong coastal breezes.

Wallasey G.C, it should be mentioned ,was the club of Dr.Frank Stapleford the creator of the stapleford scoring system.\r\nIt is on the same coastline as Royale Liverpool G.C(approx.8 miles)and is very similar in design in the fact that part of the course is carved out of the dunes and other parts of the course is open and very flat.Because its situated on the Coast the course never plays the same twice. You will always find this course in excellent condition.The fairways are narrow and demand a very accurate tee shot.The fairways that are open are very forgiving but there are only 4 holes that play like this.Im sure that youll have a wonderful days golf if somewhat testing.

Played here June 99. Surprisingly good course located very close to Liverpool. Well worth the extra effort to play. Rough was impenetrable in spring, but reportedly burns off in later part of year. Members we met were welcoming and hospitable--a treat.
