Runcorn Golf Club was established in 1909 and extended to an 18 hole course in 1977. The course was originally a 9-hole course on heath land until work began on the extra 9 holes in the early 1970’s.
The course, which is situated on the highest part of Runcorn, is a mature tree-lined parkland course, with easy walking with views over the Mersey and Weaver Valleys. The course has superb greens that will test the best of putting skills. From the white tees our course measures 6048 yards at a par 69, with two par 5’s & five par 3’s.

Removal of marked trees
|As some of you may have noticed there are a number of trees with a red spot on them (around 40 to 50 in total) These are earmarked to be cut down due the poor condition of the tree(s)|
|The repair of bare patches around the greens||Re seed and then mark off as GUR|
|Cut the hedges on the 1st Mid Week Tee||Need to erect scaffolding and manicure accordingly|
|Refill and holes on the paths||Use crush and run to do this (may need some more to complete all paths)|
|Cut back and trim trees an Bushes||This includes 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 13th & 15th. e.g in the case of the 6th we try and keep the trees to around 6ft to let more light onto the tee (currently they are around 12ft)|
|Small repair to 4th tee|
To address the rough area to the side of the tee on the RHS
|Rod out and clean all land drains||This would affect around 12 drains/areas in total|
|Clear out all ditches||There still remains 3 ditches to be cleared of branches and leaves|
|Tidy up areas by the 9th tee logs and branches||One of the neighbouring property owners has chopped the tree down and left the logs – to be cleared up|
|Repair tee steps||The steps have sunk and needs resetting on the 1st completion tee, 3rd &14th tees.|
|Re-turf and make good the edges of the paths||This includes 1st, 2nd, 8th & 16th pathways|
|Bramble removing||Kill the foliage and then dig up the roots and re- seed.|
|Tidy up the overflow car park||This is a low priority, and will be done if there is sufficient time to do it.|
|Hazard marking posts||Look at alternatives to improve hazard marking posts on the ponds and ditches etc.|
|Cut the Hedges between the clubhouse and the next door neighbour||This is done for the next door neighbour every 12 months|
|Hedge on the 1st tee||This is to be cut down and levelled to give a better impression of the opening hole.|
|Drainage Channel- Putting Green||Fit a drain to the side of the path and connect to the drainage point at the side of the club house.|
|Remove broken branch 14th fairway||Remove broken branch from a tree situated on LHS of the fairway just after the ‘bomb hole’|
This work list is weather dependant so we decided not to put any order/timescales due to the unpredictability of the weather. But will keep you all updated as and when the above work is completed
