    Known as "The Friendliest Club on Merseyside" Lee Park Golf Club is a well manicured, easy on the feet, challenging mature parkland course and is well known for its friendy welcome and the best greens bar none on Merseyside (see our 5 star ratings from independent TeeUpLo golfer reviews). Also voted in 2017 the best course in Liverpool ( click link - goo.gl/dbgXbW ) by 100 independent golfer reviews on Golfshake.

    Always presented in first class condition with the best scenic finishing hole now on Merseyside. Three separate top class warm up areas around the club for practice and the largest modern Spike Bar in the area for a relaxing end to the day.

    We have won five Environmental awards since 2008 for the actions taken on the course over several years to provide a varied wildlife habitat. Our course is a now wildlife oasis.

    Our club reached the finals of the 2015 UK Environment Golf Club of the Year award - the other finalists were Carnoustie, Royal St Davids and Hankley Common - tough opposition! The winner was Royal St David's, we came joint second with Carnoustie!!

    Then in 2016 we were nominated to the last two in the award for the UK Operation Pollinator final - just us and Carnoustie - unfortunately second again to Carnoustie - no mean feat for a small urban parkland course.

    We also first gained Golf Mark accreditation in 2006 from the EGU - still the only club on Merseyside to have won this award - for the way we look after our thriving Junior section and recognised progressive management of the club. The Seniors section is well supported and they play an active role in many friendly and league competitions. The Ladies section is active both socially and competitively in inter club matches.

    12th June 2014

    Our team was greeted by General Manager, Steve Settle who was full of enthusiasm for Lee Park Golf Club. His energy and drive was clearly apparent as he gave a brief tour of the Lee Park set up. Steve took us to the 18th green which, during the winter months had undergone a major facelift. The club had created a real signature hole and a great finish to any round of golf. A brook flows from right to left cascading down a stone built brook to the left side of the green entering into a large pond/water feature which protects the left side of the green , creating a real risk and reward approach shot, it also looks stunning.

    From leaving the club house and entering the 1st tee there is a visibly mature layout awaiting you, all fairways are lined with mature and substantial trees/foliage, a feature in many of the tee shots through the 18 holes. Many of the fairways are fairly tight and require good positioning from the tee shot. An example of this on the front nine would be stroke index 1, hole 4. It is tight from the tee and with a mid to long iron in your hand to a green that is flanked by bunkers, again requires accuracy or a big number will follow! The stroke indices are a real indicator of the tough holes on this course and highlight the possible card wreckers. My personal favorite on the front none is the 9th hole, position is paramount from the tee shot which needs to be in the region of 220yds to leave a clear view to a green that is extremely well protected, although the approach shot is with a short iron you really do need to keep it straight, a push or a pull is in big trouble.

    The back nine starts with a lovely par 3, the view of the green from the tee is framed by two wonderful tall pines, only a short hole but playing into a heavily tiered front to back green, not easy! The back nine is littered with well laid out holes, the 14th and 15th are stroke 4 and 2 respectively and require two of your best to get up in regulation. However, it is the 18th that steals the limelight as I described earlier, it is a great finish. Just make sure you have a few balls spare by the time you get there!

    We finished the round in a great clubhouse that is full of warmth and hospitality, the fish and chips we ordered was a mere £6.95 including a pint! The club house has the snooker table, large screens for the sports events and great changing facilities. All in all a great visit, unbelievable value for such a good quality track.

    I played here with Bunkers Golf Society on 20th July 2019 and I play off 9hcp.

    I have reviewed Lee Park previously [see below] and it has always been a course that ticker every box for me as a golfer. Its friendly and welcoming, its great value, its always in great nick and it always aspires to improve and get better.....its almost perfect.

    So much so, that I joined as a member and haven't regretted that decision having played in Winter, Sprint and now Summer.

    The greens are the stand out at Lee Park. Always have been and long may that continue as its often the most important factor for golfers.
    The course now matches this with manicured fairways and an easy on the eye appearance.

    Like most golfers, I get frustrated with members/guests not repairing pitch marks on the green and raking the bunkers as much as they should do!!! When a course works this hard to be this good, the least they can do is spend 20 seconds fixing the mess they've caused.

    I recommend Lee Park to everyone I speak to. Whether thats to come with mates for a friendly round, or to groups and societies who are looking for a hospitable venue to take their group. It really is a hidden gem in the truest sense.....I'm yet to speak to someone Ive recommended who hasn't been impressed and re-visited from that point onwards.

    Like any private members club, it has financial restraints that mean that things need to be planned and budgeted but its great to see improvements continue to be implemented gradually throughout the year - and minor maintenance isn't forgotten [mainly through the hard work of the green staff and artisans]. It would be superb if the one of the next things could be the heavy-weighted flag sticks, to add that finishing touch of quality to the magnificent greens. Silly, minor things - but that leave an impression on players.

    I will continue to praise Lee Park to the hilt and would recommend you all get down there for a visit. It's a fabulous club.

    Finest "local golf club" in Merseyside

    Average rating

    9.4

    23rd July, 2019, by Bunkers Golf Society

    Bunkers Golf Society have always held a strong relationship with Lee Park Golf Club - both through the previous manager Steve Settle, and now with the new manager Mark Rabone.

    Its great to see that the course has been handed over to safe hands once again and the direction and vision the club is taking is prosperous.

    The foundations of Lee Park GC are a super friendly welcome [from every member of staff], great value and quality in the clubhouse and an immaculately presented course with quite simply some of the finest greens in the UK - let alone in the Merseyside region.

    Its no secret that this club has always prided itself on having some of the best putting surfaces around, but with the continued hard work of the club and ground staff, they continue to get better and better. The general appearance of the course is also improving with manicured and striped fairways, variations of rough, more attention to presentation on tee boxes.

    For those who have never played Lee Park, the front 10 holes are intricate and require a bit more course management and "plotting". The remaining 8 holes you can open your shoulders a bit more and accuracy off the tee becomes more important.

    The value is unquestioned and offers golfers the chance to play on one of the best courses in the area for a very competitive rate - making it an ideal venue for any societies or groups.

    The food in the clubhouse is always tasty, you get good portions and its all at very reasonable prices - as is the post round pint! Again, another welcome point when selecting golf clubs for groups.

    Whenever we have dealt with the club, they have always been an absolute pleasure. As a society that plans everything in advance and in great detail, we can often be demanding and yet LPGC always cater for our needs and make sure the day goes as smoothly as possible. It sounds basic, but its surprising how many clubs get this wrong!

    The club has a couple of limitations that simply cannot be avoided. The practice ground is only up to about 130yards, but there isn`t any other available land to use. There are nets, a chipping area [behind the clubhouse that a lot of people seem to miss] a practice bunker and also a great putting green.
    The lack of a shop/pro shop - but we will cover this below and there really just isn`t space in the layout of the clubhouse to have this.

    Some criticisms we`ve heard of the course over the years are:
    "Its wet in the winter" - this has been addressed and it drains brilliantly now but like most parklands, it does accept more rain than a links track. But don`t avoid it in the winter as it plays superbly the majority of the time.

    "The back 9 has a few `up and down` and `samey` type holes" - this is more apparent due to the more complex layout of the front 9 but they`re higher indexed and with heavily tree lined fairways and some internal out of bounds, they need a player to show accuracy. It tests different facets of your game.

    "There is no pro shop" - If you need `bits` then the bar in the clubhouse stock basics, the rest you should have. Failing that, American Golf is in Liverpool Driving Range less than 1 mile away.

    In summary, Lee Park is a course people should add to their list to visit. If you`re up in the area, or even local and have never tried it - you are missing out. It offers everything you need that is important when considering a golf club.

    I have had the great pleasure of playing this course on many previous occasions. I re-visited on this occasion with fellow members of Bunkers Golf Society.
    Once again the course was in excellent condition and despite heavy rain throughout the previous night, the fairways were dry underfoot with no casual water anywhere on the course. The weekend mowing was probably postponed due to the wet weather which resulted in the greens running a little more slowly than usual at this time of year. They were though very true and smooth.
    The members are a helpful and friendly bunch and the bar is always filled with a buzz of conversation and laughter.
    The post round meal was tasty and plentiful. All in all, this is a course and club that you will travel far to beat for condition, enjoyment and value for money.
    I can recommend it to golfers of all standards without reservation.

    Played the course today with team members from Bunkers Golf Society in a match against Fairway Finders Golf Society....it was in excellent condition.
    The greens are absolutely immaculate and must be amongst the best in the land!
    The post round two course meal was delicious too and served by helpful, courteous staff.
    This is a club and a course which you will enjoy and which offers great value for money!

    Played Lee Park a few times and it never fails to disappoint. In my opinion it is the best course within the Liverpool area, challenging but a good score is achievable if you plot your way around the course. Greens always in excellent condition and the atmosphere around the club is excellent thanks to its staff and members. Hopefully it will be in the society calendar again next year.

    My second time visiting Lee Park with Bunkers Golf Society and once again it has left a positive impression. Although my game wasn't upto much I have no complaints about the course itself. Many courses have been hit hard by the terrible winter so credit has to be given to the GreenKeepers for maintaining it to a excellent playing standard. Looking forward to next year already!!

    Played with Bunkers GS on Weds 16th May. I haven’t played here for a year or so and never play particularly well here but that does not detract from the fact it’s a lovely local course.

    Famous for its immaculate greens it didn’t let us down at a time when some courses are still struggling to get up to speed. The course layout is the same but I noted some improvements to Bunkers, tee boxes and most evidently the practice facilities which from formerly being a putting green and short range now boasts a quality chipping green and decent nets.

    The rough seems to have been left to grow out a bit more than usual so added an extra element of difficulty and the pin positions were not overly friendly but the course played firm and fair.

    I always enjoy my poor round of golf here so no reason why you shouldn’t either.

    I visited Lee Park on 16/5/18 with Bunkers GS. I currently play off a 18 handicap.

    It was my first ever visit too Lee Park and I was pleasantly surprised at the full venue from the second you drive through the gates.

    There are endless amounts of practice areas at your disposal which is always handy before tee off. These are in fantastic condition and gave a really good insight to how the greens were rolling.

    The course itself was in fine form, the fairways were running and every fairway was cut to perfection. Most of the fairways are heavily tree lined but by no means make this course narrow, but does make you think about your tee shot.

    The greens were in good condition some were tougher to read than others but gave a good challenge. The greens were also rolling brilliant and quite easily the best greens I’ve played on this year. When they reach there peak in the summer months I can imagine they will be like carpets.

    A pleasantly flat course no uphill treks to greens or long inclined fairways and dry as a bone and the first time in a long time I’ve not had to wash my shoes after a round of golf.

    Lee Park GC is a fantastic golf club/course the people in the clubhouse gave us a very warm welcome and made us feel very much like we were members.

    The only downside that I can criticise on is that there is no pro shop which we were given the heads up on before arrival.

    Great course, great people, great experience, I will definitely be returning through the summer.

Everyone at the club is really welcoming and I can’t fault anything about our experiences there. A true please to visit each year. Thanks all at Lee Park

    I visited Lee Park with Bunkers Golf Society on 16/05/18 and play off a handicap of 10.

    Another superb visit to "Merseyside`s Friendliest Club". Despite the new faces at the helm, the clubs ethos remains the same [long may that continue]

    The course was in great condition in comparison to all others Ive played locally this year. Greens not quite up to the usual LPGC "carpet-like" standard, but only because every club seems to be about 4-6 weeks behind at the moment after the ridiculously bad winter we have had.

    Superb value as always and a great welcome in the clubhouse from all the staff - its something Ive become accustomed to now and is one of the great things about this club.

    The course on the whole played well. Was dry underfoot throughout and walked off with clean shoes!! The bunkers could do with a bit of attention as they were a bit `hit and miss` but the course is starting to really take shape and it promises to be another good year.

    The course is pretty flat and is a pleasant walk. Its not overly penal in terms of losing balls hand over fist, but you do need to keep the ball in play to give you chance of scoring well as the tree lined fairways demand respect and you will be `chopping out sideways` from anything that goes too far either side.

    Its you are able to get down to Lee Park GC, I would highly recommend playing 18 holes and enjoying a few pints down there.

    We returned to LPGC with Bunkers Golf Society on 16th May 2018.

    Changes since our last visit as long standing club Manager Steve Settle has moved on to be replaced by Mark Rabone. However the warm welcome and friendly faces around the clubhouse remain - which we personally feel is paramount to making this one of the first clubs we look to visit each year. You can`t put a price on customer focus and friendliness and its what has put Lee Park above others in Merseyside.

    We are almost sick and tired of writing the words "given the winter we have experienced in the UK" during our reviews, but its hard not to utter the phrase as every club we have visited so far in 2018 is a few weeks behind where they would ordinarily be at this point in the season. Lee Park is no different. However, it is far and away the best condition course, and particularly greens, that we have played on so far.

    The slick, smooth Lee Park roll isn`t 100% there yet, but its not far off and it was nice to putt on a green where the ball had a chance of staying on line!!!

    The course itself was emerald green and coming in to full bloom. This makes it very tight in parts as the tree lined fairways give the impression that you don`t have much room to play with. However, its not a penal course and you can go around here without losing a ball despite a few wayward shots.

    The Bunkers could do with a bit of TLC and tidying up and there are patches of the course that are showing `war wounds` from the brutal winter - but on the whole it played beautifully.

    As always, the food and drink were good and offered sound value and the feel in the clubhouse is always one of interaction and conversation [rather than that often found `golfing silence`]

    It again gives us great pleasure to be able to strongly review the club and say without reservation that we will be back again - not only as a society, but as individuals throughout the year. Its definitely a club that we would recommend ALL golfers pay a visit to.

    I play off 18.

    Played this course on 16.5.18 with BGS.

    As always great reception from the New manager taking over from Steve. Burger and chips to start was good quality and bar prices very reasonable.

    This course doesn't have a club shop so be prepared before arrival.

    great practise areas for putting and chipping and 2 practise nets all very good quality. Good practise area available for the longer clubs.

    the course was in great condition as always. Despite the bad weather this course has managed to keep its quality. Greens slightly slower than usual but still a perfect roll on them.

    Tee boxes where in good condition and fairways and rough very pleasing on the eye.

    Great par 3 10th and good finishing hole. Always good for nearest in 2... You can even use the water feature to your advantage......

    once again a very enjoyable round of golf at this great course. We will return and I recommend to all.

    Played at Lee Park with our Society on Sunday 24th September 2017. We were given a very warm welcome on arrival and some members spoke to us and gave a few handy tips about playing the Course. The Pro told us that some Greens had been Scarified and Vertidrained meaning that the Green Fee would be reduced by £10 per man which was a cracking gesture. The Course itself had held up really well considering the amount of rainfall recently. All areas had been mown and were in good order. The Bunkers were neat and tidy as were the tee boxes and fairways. The Greens were not at their best due to the ongoing work programme but that is to be expected around this time of year. The Course is flat and an easy walk. It is fairly short but strategically placed ditches and Bunkers mean that you have to plot your way around. We will definitely return next Summer and I will really look forward to it.

    Many thanks for your feedback- glad you liked my "customer friendly" reduction due greens not being the normal Lee Park quality. Look forward to your return in the Summer regards Steve Settle Manager

    I play off 20.
    played here on 8th July with Bunkers GS. Steve (The Manager) came and spoke to me as always very friendly and eager to show off the new practise area.
    New nets and chipping area with a perfect green equal to those on the course. A great addition to this course. !!!
    the course was in immaculate condition and the greens are a credit to all those involved.
    the course has a challenging layout with a good variety of holes.
    2 course meal afterwards was very nice and the bar prices very reasonable.
    I would encourage everyone to play this course, best greens around this area by far.

    I played this course on Saturday and its in wonderful condition. The Greens are the best I have played on all year. The fairways are in excellent condition and the only Bunker I encounted was well stocked with sand. On the back nine there is a few holes that are close together, so making the fairways a little narrow with internal out of bounds on one hole. we had a deal that include food after our round of golf, which was excellent value. The hospitably was also excellent. Thank you Lee Park GC
