4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1902

Heswall Golf Club: There are few golf clubs that can boast such panoramic and commanding views from the clubhouse and 1st tee, than Heswall. The Dee estuary and the North Wales coast are a stunning sight from this peaceful stretch of the Wirral peninsula, all supposing that the wind is not blowing flat out (as it sometimes can do in these parts).

The opening holes take you down towards the estuary. By the time you reach the long par-3 4th you will be directly alongside the expansive marshland that stretches away to eventually link-up with the water's edge. Holes 5, 6, 7, 8 and 14 are also played on this lower level, down by the waterside, but don't expect sand dunes and a links style course here at Heswall.

On this well-maintained layout, the gentle slopes and predominantly parkland-style holes are defined by small birch and fir trees separating the fairways. A few small, deep ponds also come into the reckoning, guarding the approaches to two or three greens.
