The original 9 hole course opened in 1913.
Bowring Park Golf Course is one of the first municipal golf courses in England,
Bowring Park Golf Course is set within the grounds of Bowring Park, a leisure and recreational park built on land donated to the people of Liverpool by the Bowring family in 1907.
6 miles N of Liverpool. On A5080 adjacent M62 junction 5
This is a rather charming hidden jewel of a course straddling either side of the M62 motorway. The course is easy to access, just minutes off junction 5 of the M62, and the approach to the course along a tree lined private road. Unfortunately, this belies the state of the club house, which is non existant. There is a huge building, crying out for conversion, but the only facilities are a reception area. This is a shame, as the course deserves to have such a facility. As far as the course goes, it comprises no par 5's, two par threes and the remainder are par 4's. The lack of par 5's may be seen as a disappointment to some low handicappers and I suspect the better players may find the course a little unchallenging. However, that said, accurate play is essential, as the rough, whilst not unduly long, will punish any wayward drives. The course layout however, is tastefully done and the course ambles over acres of parkland cleverly disguising the fact that you are minutes from a major motorway. The vast expanse of land on which Bowring sits has allowed the development of a number of interesting holes, many of which need some careful thought to ensure a good score. Whilst this is a fairly short course, it isn't just a 'hit'n'hope' one.
All in all a nice course, greens well kept & fairways tidy enough although being a municipal, there is a bit of litter around, particularly near the burger van on the 4th / 12th holes. Bunkers were a little untidy, with no rakes. Prices aren't too bad (£13.00 in Aug 07). Worth a visit and a nice course for the higher (10+) handicappers.
The Hacker (Pre 2010)
"The Oldest Municipal Golf Course in England" the sign at the entrance tells you, and from first impressions you might well think it's not been maintained since! But I implore anyone who can, to go there and experience this friendly local course, not just the staff but fellow golfers are friendly and polite. The course traverses the M62 and from the first hole to the last is full of different and interesting holes, from the first hole to the last. Perhaps mine, and also my friends favourite hole is the 4th, that's where the refreshments are!
Overall we have been going here for 6 years now and it's improving year on year so come and see what you think of our local course. Bryen O'Hare (Pre 2010)
