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.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar.

Cullen Links Golf Club: "immensely scenic", "quirky as golf can get", "short!", "hugely enjoyable" ... Cullen Links attracts as wide a variety of comments as it lays down golfing challenges. Shoehorned into this 4,600 yard treasure trove are ten par-3s, seven par-4s and a good-length par-5. Here you'll find all the seaside scenery a golfer could ask for, and a lot more besides.
