Rated 3 out of 5 by Evo8Lee Greens need big time help
Played with a friend on 8/3/2015. I had heard really good things about this course and was thrilled to be able to book the desired tee time an hour before. Upon arriving, the clubhouse looked nice and had the feel of a nicer, private club than a public one.
Check in went smoothly and our discounted rate included a small bucket of range balls for $29. The driving range was very nice, along with the practice green. Things would be vastly different on the course however. The first thing we noticed was the cut grass mounds all along the many of the fairways. The greens were in pretty bad shape as well- weeds, brown patches, dirt and lots and lots of unrepaired divots (not the GC fault). Some greens were very fast and unforgiving, while some were as slow as a turtle. That made the day very frustrating for both myself and the experienced golfer with me. I don't think either one of us had a 1-putt on any green even from within 4-5 feet. It was also extremely hot, 94 degrees, and there just wasn't enough water stations along the course to help cool us down. There was also no drink cart service offered.
Overall, I can't give this course high ratings on anything other than the courtesy of the pro shop employee and I'm not sure if I'd play another round here for the rest of this season, even with a nice discount. They really need to work on those greens and other golfers really need to repair their divots here.

I have played Birkdale before in the summer and the greens have been inconsistent. Right now they are perfect and the best I have seen them. Good job Birkdale, we will be back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BillyBaroooo Cold windy day
I have not played golf since late last year. I played with a friend today on a cold windy day. Lots going on at the club with new practice area, tree removal and drainage work. Greens were good for time of the year and we were allowed on the fairways with carts. Good to be back at Birkdale.

I have not played in a while, but the weather was perfect today. The course was busy, the greens the best I have seen them in a couple of years, and for $39 with a cart, great value. Me and my buddy had a great time. Good job today Birkdale.
