Just played this course with husband. It's situated right next to the M62, so the 1st hole is very noisy. The fairways are narrow but this is a challenge for accuracy. There are some challenging holes with bunkers strategically placed. However the greens are quite brown and neglected and the bunkers are full of weeds.  So at £7 through the week you would expect a more well kept course.

Me and three friends played this course recently (summer 09).  I have never played a worse course in my life.  The greens were brown and contained lumps of mud.  The bunkers are full of weeds.  The 9 holes are really crammed in which makes the fairways very tight.  You could argue it's cheap but it isn't value for money.  Avoid.

Just returned from a very enjoyable hour and a half on the Shirley wood 9 holer. As a beginner I found it quite forgiving to wayward drives etc as most of the adjourning fairways are defined with grass banking etc instead of the usual trees and rough. It is probably a little tame for the experienced player but for a novice such as myself I will be making many return visits to try and improve my skill level as some of the fairway lengths and widths make you think about club selection a lot more than on a longer course. All in all a very enjoyable New Year's Eve morning and all for the bargain price of only £6.
