    Lee Park Golf Club is a well manicured, easy on the feet, but challenging mature parkland course and is well known for its friendliness and the best greens bar non on Merseyside (see our 9+ ratings above from independent reviews). Always presented in first class condition with the best scenic finishing hole on Merseyside. Three separate top class warm up areas 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 wildlife oasis and is always improving habitat areas around the course .

    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, coming joint second with Carnoustie!!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    In recent years, many members of Bunkers Golf Society have developed very warm and respectful relationships with the committee and members of this lovely club. Many society members have indeed held memberships at this fine, hospitable club.
    Lee Park offers visitors a tremendous golfing experience and excellent value for money.
    The course is always in good condition and you will search far and wide to find better greens anywhere.
    The food is delicious and plentiful and the friendly atmosphere in the informal spike bar is a real pleasure to get back to after your round.
    I can recommend this club to golfers of all abilities, without reservation.

    Visited Lee park for first time with bunkers but 3rd time personally. Course in lovely condition, some tee's a little narrow in width but fine in terms of surface. Greens, absolutely brilliant, best greens I've played on with bunkers for putting and true role of the ball.

    Hospitality lovely.

    Will definitely be visiting again with and without bunkers.

    I visited Lee Park GC as part of Bunkers Golf Society on 8th July 2017 and I play off a handicap of 11.

    I have previously been a member of Lee Park, but due to work commitments in the last couple of years I`ve had to let my membership go. So I was really looking forward to going back to the club with the society after a period away. I follow the club on Twitter and I was intrigued to see all the work that had been done first hand.

    Lee Park has always been a supremely friendly club, with the staff all taking the time and effort to get to know me [and all members] and they all seem to have this ability to remember you by name. The greens have always been outstanding and are something the club [rightly] should be very proud of.

    However, at times in the past, the course itself has come under elements of criticism in some quarters. Some saying the layout isn`t testing enough, and others critical of the winter condition. I know during my time as a member that neither of things were an issue for me and the winter problems seemed to be a thing of the past due to the hard work and investment the club made.

    Going back with Bunkers Golf Society was a eye opener to what I have missed over the last 2 years that I have been away. It was great to see familiar faces and say hello to old friends.

    However, this review isn`t all about people......the course? Its in the best condition I have ever seen it and the greens are quite simply the best I have played on for a considerable amount of time. Bearing in mind that in the last 12 months I have played all 3 courses at Gleneagles, The Brabazon, Royal Liverpool, Hillside, S&A and Conwy amongst others. I can say with great certainty that Lee Park`s greens were better. I kid you not.

    Slick, smooth and a dream to putt on. The club should be extremely proud of the work they have put into them and the ongoing monitoring of the greens that they do in conjunction with agronomists.

    The course generally was in superb condition with the fairways all cut beautifully and the rough had two definitions of depth. Bunkers were well stocked and fair and the tee boxes were all flat and well tendered.

    The cost of the day - as always at Lee Park - was outstanding value. Food was plentiful and tasty and the prices in the clubhouse were excellent. In an age where a lot of clubs try and `rake money in` for a post round snack and pint, its refreshing that Lee Park take the approach that they would like to see the clubhouse bustling with golfers as opposed to near empty with people being charged up to £5 a pint.

    In summary, this revisit to the club will probably get me back to the club for the 2018 season. I live 2 minutes from the club and it fits everything that I would want. Primarily, its a place where you are made to feel part of whats going on - whereas with some clubs, you feel like a number. There are clubs with a more picturesque backdrop or who have been given more media coverage resulting in a wider spread reputation - but let me tell you, there aren`t many better clubs about than Lee Park Golf Club.
    If you have never visited, get yourself down and see for yourself. The phrase "hidden gem" is overused in golfing circles, but its an understatement here.

    As an ex member Andy, it was our pleasure to welcome back all our Bunkers friends for your day out. As you say we have worked hard on improving what we have. Our greens get superb reviews - they improve year over year and are now at their peak for a longer playing period from May to October. All our visitors praise them and the extra effort on presentation on the course and expenditure on fairway drainage this year has paid big dividends. We have also invested in a short game warm up area and 2 new driving nets. Our club doesn't stand still and we are already looking at other areas on the course to reinvest member's money. But as always, customer focus is everything - no expenditure for big rewards in happy visitors and members. Steve Settle Manager

    Bunkers Golf Society visited Lee Park G.C on Saturday 8th July 2017.

    Lee Park Golf Club have always been very generous to Bunkers Golf Society. They’ve hosted our Last Man Standing competition previously and several of our members have joined the club as members in one guise or another over the years.

    It’s always been a well-run club with a great ethos. It’s certainly the friendliest club that I have visited and every member of staff makes the effort to remember names and engage in conversation on every visit – which is a lovely trait. On top of this, the club produces the very best from the land that it has been given.

    Put simply, it is currently in the finest condition that we have ever seen it. The course looks immaculate from tee to green – and the later are still the star of the show and would not be out of place on ANY golf course in the U.K. They are fabulous. More about that shortly.

    On arrival, we were greeted by manager Steve Settle and had a bite to eat in the clubhouse. The food was superb value for money and the portions were large and very tasty. We then went out onto the putting green and upgraded practice area consisting of a chipping area, bunker and 2 practice nets – this in addition to the short practice ground that allows up to about 130 yard shots.

    On to the 1st tee and the sun was pouring down on the course and showing it in its best light. Lush green fairways that were all well mown and defined cuts of rough that were striped to give an even greater appeal on the eye. Mid-summer and the course was in full bloom with the trees, foliage and flowers all helping to make the fairways look even tighter from each of the tee boxes.

    On to these greens…on the notice board it told us that they were measuring between 11 and 12 on ‘the stimp’ and it’s fair to say that they rolled quicker and truer than anything we have played on in 2017. In fact, we would go as far as to say that they are the best greens we have visited this year, if not the last couple of seasons. They are immaculate and having been to the club hundreds of times they are probably as well as we have ever seen them. Putting on them [when we got used to the pace] was a dream. Send the ball on the chosen line and it didn’t deviate with a constant and true roll.

    The course is pretty easy going and flat, but is by no means easy. The main defence is the tight layout and the final 4 or 5 holes – especially in a team competition where all three players scores in each team had to count – meant that it sorted the men from the boys. For anyone thinking Lee Park is an easy test of golf [which could be the misconception when simply looking at the layout] the proof was in the scoring on the day – with 4 of the 6 teams all finishing on 68 points [where 72 points would be par] and the top score being 73.

    Afterwards we enjoyed a 2 course meal, a few beers and again the warmth and friendliness of the staff and members in the clubhouse. The day cost £35 per man, which on a Saturday afternoon is supreme value.

    In summary, Lee Park has always been a club we have really enjoyed and felt we have a strong relationship with. We like the way they operate and they share similar values to how we like to operate as a society. However, on this return visit, we were blown away by the improvements the club have made and the high standards that are being kept. The one constant is the people and the friendly nature – but making this whole thing “just work” isn’t a fluke. It’s hard work and people who are proud of what they are trying to achieve and long may that continue. It’s fair to say, a few people will probably back joining in 2018 and that’s the biggest compliment we can give.

    The greens however are amazing - running true and fast with very marks on them, they are of the highest quality..

    We played this course as a society day for swingers golf society (based in the north west) and I must say that even bearing in mind it was only £25 to play it was one of the nicest course I've played. The greens were fast and definitely up there with the best. We will definitely be making this course an annual fixture on our calendar.

    I play off 20. Member of Bunkers Golf Society. Played here today 18.04.17. Had a coffee in the spike bar friendly chatty bar staff then the Manager Steve introduced himself. Advised me that the Greens aren't quite Lee Park quality.
    So after the friendly chat onto the superbly kept putting green before making to the first tee. Tee block perfect condition which continued for each hole. The fairways look amazing. Eventually land on the green, think Steve was a little harsh, I've played a few courses in April and these greens are head and shoulders above them all. This is a nice course great condition and a must play !

    Returned to Lee Park as a guest having been a member up until a few years back. Work and family meant I couldn't keep up that membership but the welcome I received returning as a paying guest was fantastic. Steve and his team are the most hospitable team around and their enthusiasm is catching.
    The course given that it was April 18th was superb. I noticed visible improvements since my last visit throughout the course. The tees are flat and large, the fairways are defined and striped and the rough is short and playable. Parts of the course I would have expected to be damp were vastly improved and overall appearance is lovely.
    Lee Parks greens are their pride and they were not a disappointment. Smooth, fast and on the edge of being at their summer best. I would urge anyone considering a trip to Lee Park to make the effort. Seek out Steve, enjoy a bite to eat and have a very enjoyable days golf.

    Stuart - thanks for your prescriptive text feed back. Regarding the facilities low score you gave us because of lack of pro shop, whilst we have had a teaching professional for many years, we stopped having a professional shop many years ago. This was a business decision - balls, gloves tees etc. are still available for purchase at the Starter's office. Our greens are the best on Merseyside and whilst it is still early season they will continue to improve throughout the summer. Come back anytime and sample. Steve Settle Manager

    Played here with bunkers golf society for a 3 man team comp.
    It was a perfect day for it in september but kudos must go out to the club and groundsman, the course was in fantastic condition, probably the best its played all year. There simply wasnt a thing out of place, from the tee boxes to the fairways and defined ruff they were immaculate. Alot is said about Lee Park's greens and 100% they will not disappoint, they are perfect in every way, very quick, pure, no pitch marks on them, a joy to play on. The reception the club give is always top notch and manager Steve topped it off by putting a prize on for the nearest in 2 on the 18th, perfect touch to a great days golf.

    I had the great pleasure of playing this course with pals from Bunkers Golf Society. It is fair to say that this was one of the best days we've enjoyed this season!
    From the warm and courteous welcome we received on arrival to the delicious food we were presented with throughout the day it is fair to say that the day could scarcely have been better.
    The course was superb, with bunkers and fairways well manicured and fast smooth greens in magnificent condition.
    Food and beverages in the friendly clubhouse Spike Bar were well priced and offered excellent value for money.
    The very generous provision of a free fourball for the player getting nearest the pin in two on the last (Thank you Mr. Steve Settle, Club Manager) was the icing on the cake!
    Do yourself a great favour and visit this great club soon, you will certainly not regret it!

    My better half and I have taken Lifestyle membership of Lee Park recently and have been really impressed with all aspects of this lovely club.
    We have found the club in excellent condition and it obviously has a very dedicated staff from the manager down. It is very welcoming and there is a relaxed and friendly atmosphere each time we visit.
    The course is well kept and there are many holes that are pleasing on the eye.
    We love the fact that it cares immensely for the local environment and we see evidence that the local wildlife are in agreement!
    The facilities are very good and the clubhouse provides everything we need.
    We have undoubtedly chosen the right club of which to be members.
    In summary, We are very happy to have become members of Lee Park. It is a club that seems to go from strength to strength.
    Thank you Lee Park.

    Fantastic greens await you at Lee Park, some of the smoothest i have had the pleasure of playing.
    The Course is quite challenging with a good mixture of holes and is excellently maintained.
    The friendly spike bar serves very nice food at really good value.

    This is a course you should definitely visit!

    This course never fails to amaze me, hidden away amongst the houses is a little parkland gem, the greens are some of the best you will play.

    No easy holes ending with a great feature hole to finish, stay dry to maintain your score, the price of the food and drinks is fantastic value.

    Played here as part of the bunkers golf society Last mam standing competition the course was in immaculate condition and as always the greens here are superb. The lady that greeted me at the payment office was very friendly and happy as much as possible. A great parkland course I'd be happy to visit again.

    Played here as a 4 ball with two people that are members on 13/04/15.
    The course is shaping up to be right at its very best for the start of the season, as always the course was in great condition,fairways were good bunkers had plenty of sand in and the greens were as good as they can be for this time of year. They were a tiny bit bobbly but you can tell in 3 weeks time they will be the best in the north west again. Always a great visit from the course to the staff everything is top notch.

    This course is possibly Liverpool's best parkland course, offering an interesting variety of features on the course.

    Greens are very well kept and require good reading and planning. The tree lined fairways can be very tight and will punish wayward drives. Out of bounds on the back 9 adds to the challenge set by the course.

    The new water feature has evolved the former 18th which was a good opportunity for birdie into a possible score-card ruiner. This as well as the change to the 10th in 2012 has truly made this a stand out course that is a challenge for the average golfer.

    A nice putting green and smaller practice ground adds to the quality of the course. Club house is well kept and members are welcoming.

    A great course.

    I have re-joined Lee Park in 2015 following a superb first 12 months. There are reviews knocking about [on here and elsewhere] that say that Lee Park is only playable for 8 months of the year and that Winters are a write off.

    I feel compelled to set this straight as untrue. I know LPGC historically had a reputation of being a wet course in the winter, but the club appear to have tackled this head on and made massive strides.
    I played on the course for 12 months of the year and only experienced a couple of occasions when the course was saturated; after record amounts of rain I must add. The club have worked hard on improving the drainage and systems in place to protect the course in the winter and these have brought huge benefits. People need to be a bit more realistic sometimes. In periods of bad weather, the course is not going to miraculously remain bone dry and as with most parkland courses, they are susceptible to areas of soggy ground. Also, in the winter months the clubs will protect the tee boxes and walkways and in extreme conditions will work on temps.
    That said, in 2014 I only recall playing one a temp green on 2 occasions and that was due to frost.

    The course was recently in the final of the Environmental awards along with highly regarded national courses Royal St David's Golf Club and Carnoustie!! This shows you the standards the club is aiming at and the hard work they put in on a number of levels.

    The course itself is wonderful and the improvements made with the 18th pond and new 10th green have only continued to take the club to new heights. The layout is interesting and keeps you on your toes and especially when the trees are in bloom as the fairways and greens appear even tighter and make accuracy paramount.

    The fairways are always lush and springy and are wonderful to play off and the club has made massive improvements with the bunkers and they're always well stocked and raked.

    The clubs main selling point is the quality of their greens - which quite simply are the finest in Merseyside when they are in season. When I say that, I include Royal Birkdale, Hillside, Royal Liverpool and West Lancs of which I have played on several times in recent years. They are receptive and always look lush but the trueness of the roll and the speed of them just inspire confidence as you can putt knowing that the ball will go on the line you set it on. For anyone who takes their golf seriously, you really do need to start getting to Lee Park to enjoy them!!

    Rounds generally take between 3 to 3.5 hours and the pace of play is always good. Its also not a harsh walk on the legs and is therefore good for all ages and abilities.

    The highlight of the club for me though is the friendliness and warmness of ALL of the staff. No matter what time or what day I play, I am always greeted by smiling faces and people who are happy to help. There's always a good atmosphere in the club and banter always going about which makes it very relaxed.
    The staff all took the time to get to know me and now refer to me and my playing partners by name and this seems to happen across the board with most members there. It just makes you feel part of the place and its great to see in an era where the interest in your money often outweighs the personal touch.

    In summary, if you've not been to Lee Park Golf Club then you really need to ask why? You don't need to book your rounds, just check the website page 'on the tee' and if theres no competition or group booked in then you just 'roll up' and go out in order....another superbly relaxed idea that just makes things run smoother.
    A superb club that I am proud to call mine.

    Thanks for your positive feedback which I will pass on to all my staff - we are presently scarifying all tees and fairways this week - making them even lusher for this season- so that will be another major improvement on our course. Continous improvement by our dedicated green staff. Our well renowned greens will be at their very best by end April - sunshine permitting. Steve Settle Manager 13th April
