Played Hillside on Easter Sunday. The course was in excellent condition for the time of the year. A must visit for all golf fans. Greens were in excellent condition, along with pristine fairways.

While not considered in the same class as the "Royals" in the area (Royal Birkdale, Royal Liverpool, and Royal Lytham), Hillside is a great layout and is highly recommended to anyone doing a golf trip to the area.

Next door to Royal Birkdale, but not overshadowed. Excellent layout. Memorable holes, aplenty. Wonderful clubhouse and welcoming professional. Good weather was the icing on the cake, Not to missed. Golf aficionados delight.

A great course with one of the best inward 9 you can play. Had the pleasure on two occasions looking forward to going back sometime. Members were friendly as were staff in the pro shop.

This could quite easily be the best track I've played, not a weak hole on the property! I wish I'd done it more justice. Fantastic clubhouse with a welcoming atmosphere, competitively priced food and drinks. Well stocked Pro Shop and very good practice area. The...More
