I can only agree with all the reviews before that Hillside is a great course and for less than half the money of Royal Birkdale it is great value. The back nine is very very good with 10,11,13,14,15,16,17 &18 some of the finest closing holes you will ever play made all the more special with birdies at 17 & 18. If you are in Southport and only get the opportunity to play one course then play Hillside. If you are lucky enough to play more then try to add Royal Birkdale as it is a class act. Hillside was in the most wonderful condition following the hot dry summer we have just had. I will be going back again very soon.
