Bunkers Society Day

Average rating

8.6

17th September, 2018, by ganno77

Another visit to the glorious Ormskirk GC, a firm favourite on our calendar. The course is always in great condition and today was no exception, the fairways were clean, well divided from the semi rough with nice patterns throughout the course. The greens were exceptional with the ball rolling true on impact. This is in my top 3 of courses that Bunkers visit.

I play off 17.
Visited with Bunkers Golf Society September 2018.

This is one of the first courses on our calendar every year. The condition of this course is always perfect from practise facilities, to tee boxes to Greens.
A great variation of holes and another good thinking parkland course. Stay in play and you will hit a good score.... as long as you can putt !!
Cant rate this course enough and would encourage you to make every effort to play here at least once.

My first year as a member of Bunkers and so far we have played some cracking courses... Ormskirk being the latest! I have to say everything about the place is superb, members very welcoming, staff very accommadating and the facilities were excellent. The course was in fantastic condition considering the downpour we had the night before. Greens were terrefic... consistent, true roll on all 18. The commitee once again have pulled one out of the bag... looking forward to next years visit already.

I played with Bunkers Golf Society on 7th Sept.

The highest compliment I can pay Ormskirk GC is that I would quite happily become a member here for life. It really is that good and the warm welcome and friendliness around the club is endearing.

Its always in supreme condition and presented beautifully and the greens and fairways are some of the finest you will play on.

Its worth paying those extra couple of pounds to step up to this level in quality of club. You really do get what you pay for.

We returned with the society on Friday 7th September 2018 following a night of heavy rain. Despite this, the course held up superbly and aside from the odd water laden bunker, you wouldn't know there had been such a deluge. This has been our finding of Ormskirk Golf Club in all the years that we have been visiting as a society - it just gets things right!

Once again we were met and greeted by a member of the club - which is always a lovely touch - and literally every member we passed said 'hello' or took the time to ask about our society. Its just a very warm and receptive club, despite the grandeur it carries in the local area.

The practice facilities are superb and are better presented than some of the clubs lots of golfers will visit with an immaculately presented practice ground that looks like 'Axminster Carpet', a bunker and chipping area that reflects the quality of the greens and a practice green that is a mirror of the speed and slickness of the greens on the 18 holes you will face. Its often surprising how often some clubs pay little attention to the practice/warm up areas, but they should be a mirror of what players will find on the course in terms of quality and condition.

The course itself is a beautiful parkland set up with that odd hole feeling a bit heathland-like. Mature trees line most of the fairways and are ready to gobble up any stray golf balls - meaning that accuracy off the tee is more paramount here than lost of other courses. However, despite this, its isn't cruel and overly penal. The rough is fair and only the most errant of shots will be [rightly] punished, requiring players to 'take their medicine' and chip sideways.

The course condition was immaculate and has taken a further step up in quality this year. We were told of the addition of a new greenskeeper from Royal Birkdale who has brought about some changes and this is apparent in the quality and presentation of the course throughout - thats not to say it was 'worse' previously.

The tee boxes are better than some greens out there and are flat and well presented and the fairways are like playing off mats, in that they are consistent, spongey and well cared for.

However, the stand out of the course are the greens. These were smooth and slick and despite not being 'super quick' were some of the finest we have played on this year and were consistently paced throughout. They have subtle breaks that catch you out and good green reading and pace/distance control is key.

We enjoyed soup and sandwiches afterwards and these were plentiful and tasty and all of the staff were extremely pleasant and welcoming - a trait we find on every visit to the club. At £48 on a Friday morning, we think it offers good value for a course of this quality.

It goes without saying that we will be hoping to return in 2019 and keep our annual link to the club going as it is one of our favourites - as voted by our members annually at AGM.

Played here before and considering this course has had same weather that other courses are using as a reason for some issues seen, this course proves they are excuses. From tee boxes, down the fairways and onto the greens, no areas of gur or bald patches (that I saw) . Tightly mown tee's, fairways and best greens I've played on this year. Despite having a terrible day myself, that is no way fault of course. Wouldn't hesitate to come back.

We played here as a part of bunkers golf society on Friday 7th September. This being my first time playing Ormskirk and hearing nothing but good things I was thoroughly looking forward to playing this course. It's safe to say I was not dissapointed.

The tee boxes for a start were better than some of the greens I have played on this year, well looked after no humps or bumps and extremely well presented.

The fairways ran well and the first cut was there but wasnt penal but some area of the rough would put you in a sticky situation. Very well tree lined fairways meant that accuracy off the tee is paramount and avoiding the fairway bunkers was also a nice challenge to come across. Well protected greens also posed a strong challenge especially on the par 3s.

The greens were nothing short of outstanding they ran like glass and the breaks made reading these greens a true challenge and I enjoyed every second on the greens extremely reactive also balls stopped on greens and took the breaks even when chipping on absolute delight.

Clubhouse and members are extremely friendly and the practise facilities are second to non.

I'd love to become a member here never mind play here again.

110% recommend to anyone.

I have just played this great parkland course. Despite the heavy overnight and early morning rain, this course was in excellent condition. Well defined fairways, bunkers raked and excellent greens. We had soup and sandwiches after our round, which were very good and the service was excellent. Hopefully it will be on our fixture list next year. Thank you Ormskirk GC for a great day out.

One of the nicest courses I’ve played. Certainly the nicest greens I’ve ever putted on. A testing front 9 some very long holes and not much room for error either side of the fairway so accuracy is key. A lot more scoring opportunities on the back 9 with some shorter holes and a few birdie chances. A fantastic course and a real hidden gem

Having played this course a few weeks prior to the society day I was really looking forward to coming back. The greens where the best we have played on this year. With some tight fairways an well guarded greens you may have to think your way around here taking irons on a few tees is a must. Sure this will be in the calendar already for next year top course.

With a long front 9 and a short back 9 there’s a great range of challenges over the 18 hole course at Ormskirk. Wether you’re a long or short hitter, each hole will challenge you in some way to test your game. Tee boxes and greens are fantastic and the fairways are like carpets. Clubhouse is on the small side but it has everything you’d want, hospitality was good and the food is really nice. One of the best courses I’ve played.

Fantastic enjoyable course, this course is one of the best we have played as a society and right on are door step, will be back here for sure every year, maybe next time playing a major. The course is tricky but but has a little bit of everything, I have played here twice and played well twice so maybe I am being a bit biased, but I could play it every week. And to top it off they sell Wainwrights in the bar so that was the cherry on the cake, I did leave a loads of points out there but who doesn't.

Played 24th August. This is one of the best courses that i have ever played at, Greens and course in fantastic condition. A very warm welcome from the staff and very helpful. make sure you hit perfect tee shot as the rough is really tough and i advise of hitting a prov even if you see it land( personal experience). But a great course one that all societies will enjoy and will be on the fixture list for next season, as all the 16 members who came really enjoyed the challenge.

Played ormskirk on Monday with a member. I have to say it is in THEE best condition of any course I have played in possibly the last 3 years.

The fairways and 3 cuts of rough along with pristine greens made this a great day out.

It's a really good challenge and I hope to return soon . What a course 5* it's a must play.

Played here with bunkers golf society on 25/6/17.

This was the second time i had played here and was very much looking forward to it. The course is truely stunning every hole is in immaculate condition from the tee boxes to the well manicured fairways to the perfect greens its hard to say a bad work about it! This i a very tough and challanging course where accuracy off the tee is a must, but not only that you do need to hit it a good distance off the tee as most of the par 4s are between 400-470 i think.
To score well around this golf course you also must manage the tricky par 3s were in my case if you miss on the wrong side you have to really heavily on your short game.
The green staff do a great job in presenting this golf course and if you get the chance i highly recommend a visit.

Played here with the Bunkers golf society on 25/06/2017. Having played the course once before my expectations where high as it was immaculate last time. This time it didn't disappoint again the course is in great condition tees, fairways and greens can't be faulted. The rough is extremely punishing any wayward shots might not be found even slightly off the fairway which is tough but if you keep it in the fairway you don't have to worry. The staff as always where very helpful and friendly and made us all feel very welcome. Great course can't wait to play again someday.

I play off 20.
Played here with Bunkers Golf Society in June 2017. I was met at the pro shop by the starter who was very informative all aspects of the course explained and addressed the society prior to teeing off with a few jokes thrown in for free.
On to the tee each and every tee block in great condition, the course was immaculate and very stunning to the eye. Greens very good as always. Need to be in play on this course to get a good score! Some great par 3's a must play course.
Presentation was upstairs with a tasty soup and sandwiches to follow ! Thanks for a great day again

Our 2nd visit to this lovely well maintained course hidden in the surrounds of Ormskirk. A bunkers MAJOR event held here for the 1st time and it was a pleasure to be involved once again on this brilliant track. Clean fairways, tricky holes and smooth greens made for a fantastic event once again at Ormskirk GC. We hope to be back here again next year.
