    Golf course near Manchester/Liverpool

    Hi all,

    I'm in this area for work for a week at the end of March. Looking for a nice course to play at a couple of times. Ideally would be a links style course as I live in land so nothing like that locally.

    Don't want to spend ridiculous money (which rules out Birkdale etc) but any suggestions would be great!

    Cheers all

    Leasowe is links and cheap. Just over the tunnel on the Wirral.

    For a decent test of golf at that time of year, you can't go far wrong with Formby Ladies. Cheaper than the likes of Formby, Hillside etc.. but still a very good track.

    Plus, I think they'd still be off winter rates till end of March.

    If you have a county card then check out Royal Liverpool, they do a £50 deal on mondays and fridays.
    Hit a little white ball round a field into a small hole. Repeat.

    Current Handicap: 12 2016 Target: Lower than 12

    Formby, Hillside, the open courses and West Lancs may still set you back a pretty penny.

    Leasowe will be cheap-ish (possibly as little as £20).

    Caldy and Heswall may be something in-between although Heswall is a parkland but on the coast and Caldy is a bit of a mix of the two.

    Take up Val's offer if you can, Wallasey is very good.

    Wallasey and S&A would be my choice. 2 superb links courses that won't cost a fortune. I'd never tire of those 2.

    Great offer Val 👏👏

    Wallasey & West Lancs would be my choice.

    So many great courses along that stretch, just the dodgy locals you have to put up with 😜😂

    Wallasey is a must if you're up that way. One of the most fun courses I've played, I absolutely love it!
    Hcap stuck at 10/11.
