Dear Visitor,


Welcome to the Bootle Golf Club Website.


Bootle Golf Course is currently maintained by Sefton Council and is open for pay & play 7 days a week. Our membership currently stands at 140, approximately 20% of whom play off single figure handicaps and they are the heartbeat of our club. In addition to weekly competitions, many club members enjoy outings to other golf courses at home and abroad and participate in many external events.


At Bootle you will always find a warm welcome. If you are considering golf club membership please contact the Secretary or any of the other Council members who's details can be found on this site, or simply call at the shop and pick up a membership form. We look forward to meeting you.
