3 reviews of Warren Golf Club (Merseyside)
I play this course on a regular basis and its condition is always playable, even during heavy rain. Hole 3, a par 4 that is extremely challenging over 420 yards with a very small green to hit for your second shot. You must hit a good first drive or the second shot is blind. The 5th hole is great if you can hit a long straight drive through the middle hills. If you do you'll make the green that is blind from the tee. A great hole for a birdie oppitunity Fairways are tight and greens are small but the course isn't that long but its definitely worth playing. This course can challenge the best golfer. The signature hole is the 9th, a par 5 with out of bounds all the way down the left. Good chance to birdie if your second shot doesn't get swallowed up by one of the many bunkers surronding the green. You can get caught up waiting at each hole so its best to play out of peek times. Also there is no practice green so you'll just have to get straight ou there doing your thing. Its great for a quick 9 to cure the addiction and get back home before anybody notices your gone.
A cracking little 9 holer which is almost certain to be open regardless of the weather, even after the heaviest prolonged periods of rain. We played it this morning (28th Nov.2009) when almost every course in the region was closed and it was in first class condition. We hadn't played the course for 3 years and were pleasantly surprised at the improvement in the greens, they were true and with almost no damage considering it is a municipal course with no marshalls or security, a credit to the greenkeepers. The course was fairly busy what with everywhere else being closed but we had very few delays and were round in under 4 hours. You need to think your way round the course although it is fairly short, there are plenty of difficult hazards waiting to gobble up wayward shots and wreck a good scorecard. The 2 holes "over the road" no's 4&5 are particuarly challenging and a missed fairway usually means disaster on either of these holes. Go and try The Warren and discover for yourselves this hidden little gem.
The course at Warren Golf Club is a challenging 9 holer links, which features some cracking holes. Considering the amount of golfers who use it the condition of the course is always above average. It can be quite difficult to locate; there are no signposts as far as I know, and the entrance is only small so can be easily missed. The car park is quite small which sometimes means parking on the road outside. There is a decent pro shop which sells basic golfing essentials and includes the rental of golf trolley's. There's no putting green or practise area. Usually a queue develops at the first so expect a wait, especially on weekends. Holes to look out for - 3rd - A long, difficult par 4, players must hit the ball a fair distance to avoid a blind second. Out of bounds lies down the left, the green is worthy of any champiosnhip links course!! 5th - Tiny par 4, players can either lay up short of the mound leaving a blind second or go for it, hoping the ball will trickle down the slope. An interesting, fun hole. 9th - The last is a par 5 with out of bounds all the way down the left. Tee shots can go over it, shortening the hole somewhat. Longer hitters may get there in two however the better way to negotiate is to leave a pitch on for your third making a birdie opportunity possible. The course is a good test of golf, especially in the wind. It does get extremely busy however, and there is a lack of space meaning fairways are sometimes shared by golfers playing other holes. The course doesn't operate a booking system also so expect a long wait on the first tee. If you manage to get on at a quiet time the course is a cracker and great value for money, however avoid at busier times.
