Played Bidston last sunday, 2nd April. It was a really windy day and course was very testing. Tee boxes were in good condition and surprisingly hard considering . Greens in excellent condition and difficult to read which made for interesting stableford. Really welcoming clubhouse and would recommend a day out there.

Hidden course just out of the tunnel

Bidston Golf Club is very easily accessed due to it's location (a few minutes out of the Wallasey tunnel). Set back from the main roads, yet visible from the M53 and Wiral train line, this small club is worth a visit.

Having visited numerous times over the last ten years, I have found the course to be a great place for a casual round at a relaxing pace.

Although the course is generally open, allowing for the occasional wayward drive, Bidston does have some trickier holes that will require planning. The 6th hole is an example of this, a tempting driving hole, but a narrow tree lined fairway can leave you poorly positioned for the green.

The most impressive hole on the course is the 8th, a blind tee shot into the fair way can prove a tricky task on a windy day.

The staff at the club are friendly and food and drink are well priced and good value for money. All in all, this club is worth a visit.

If you can find this place, it's well worth a visit.
It's pretty exposed and plays like a links course so pick a nice day!
Very well maintained and good fairways and greens. You wouldn't believe it was there and as nice a course as it is on your way to it in the car.
The first hole is a very easy par 4 but that just suckers you in. Some great (and difficult) holes and the old chap that greeted us was most welcoming.
Definitely worth a visit.

They claim that their greens are great and they were. The rest of the course was in good condition.

Its a bit tight in places with tees very close to greens. There are also very few rakes in the bunkers so some issues with bad lies in the sand (just avoid the sand I here you say!).

Great deal but let me clarify the hospitality score - dealing with the office is hard work to the point I nearly decided to tell them where to go and book elsewhere. I have never known anywhere try to charge a 30 strong golf society more than the casual golfer turning up off the street!

All saved by their Twitterer @bidstongolf who sorted us out and even came to welcome us on the day.

Bit of a belated review as i played this course a couple of months ago. The entrance to the Golf Club isn't pretty and the initial view of the clubhouse isn't great either. Still, it's the course that matters and i was impressed with the course. A mix of links and parkland that was in superb condition. The greens were flawless, in fact they were as good as anything i'd played on all year.
The fairways were lush and the different cuts of rough were well maintained. The course layout isn't overly challenging but some well placed fairway bunkers mean club selection is important. I enjoyed the course and will return to play again.

I visited Bidston on a lovely sunny mid week afternoon in July. The course is easy enough to find as you come off the M53 and after a bit of a meandering drive from the main road you eventually arrive at a rather strange looking clubhouse that looks a bit like an old wartime bunker as you arrive at it.

The facilities at the club house were adequate with a reasonably stocked club shop and all the usual amenities.
The practice green was a bit of a let down and didn't really reflect the course, and there was a net to warm up the irons prior to making to the short opening hole.

The opening holes were a bit of a maze as we struggled to find where to walk and the lack of signs didn't help.

The course was empty and we were able to pretty much gallop along through our round. The opening hole is a very short par 4 that can pretty much be driven from the tee and this sets the tone for quite a few of the holes on the course. Relatively simple shots that don't require a huge degree of accuracy and it is probably a superb course for a novice or senior player who is struggling for distance.

The greens were fair without being great and rolled reasonably true and with adequate pace. They were well kept and were clearly tended to and we saw groundstaff during the round working on the course [which is always good to see through the week]

The course is a bit bland in parts with staright forward holes and little variety, but this is mainly down to the layout of the land as opposed to how they've tried to build the course. Its almost like a golf course has been built upon only playing fields as it is a flat track and is easy on the legs. However, it was pleasant for a midweek round and the fairways and rough were well kept.

Bidston have clearly tried to do their best with what they have been given. It isn't going to be a course that sticks in the memory, but nor is it going to be one that you refuse to go back to.

The chap in the pro shop wasn't the most welcoming and he seemed a touch disinterested - which, given the quietness of the course, I find quite odd as I would've expected him to be trying to impress guests. Linda Letts in the admin office was superbly helpful and greeted us with a smile and was very welcoming.

Played Bidston today and enjoyed a decent round in the blistering sun.

Proshop seems to be well stocked and one of the members was helpful giving a brief resume of the course before we set off. He did warn that the 16th was a card wrecker...and it was.

Opening holes are pleasant enough with a short par 4 to begin. The course is well set out and to be fair the designer has done the best they could with what was probably a pretty wide expanse of land incorporating dog legs where possible.

Errant shots are not overly punished with wide fairways and only narrow strips of rough between them. Areas amongst trees were generally cut and the first cuts of rough were consistent in length. Bunkers were well maintained but were quite heavy probably due to rainfall two days previously.

Tee boxes were well cut and generally flat and fairways were being cut as we played and were ok.

Greens were cut a little bit longer than I am used to but nevertheless ran reasonably well and were actually quite receptive.

The course is an easy walking open course. There was nothing about it that could be described as bad but then there was nothing to excite either. On a nice day it's just a pleasant knock.
