Walking The New 9 Hole Beacon Park Golf Course

Having recently expressed a thought that Skelmersdale Borough Councillors may wish to attend the Beacon Park Golf Course to see for themselves what is happening there, the Club Captain Tommy Jackson was pleased to meet Moorside Councillor Terry Aldridge there today.

They walked the 9 hole course 019 which to all intents and purposes has been land filled, top soiled, shaped, and seeded. At various points on their walk they “dipped” the top soil to test the depth. 010 At no point of testing did the dip show a depth of more than one and a half inches. In many cases the dip was unable to penetrate the surface gravel which has been seeded! Bricks and concrete 012 are clearly in evidence.012 

Councillor Aldridge was in disbelief at a WLBC claim that they, the borough Leisure Services, are “vigilant in ensuring suitable management oversight and has undertaken regular monitoring of works at the Golf Course”. He saw what these pictures show 015, a cheap, nasty, and dangerous pretence intended to dupe the public. It hasn’t!
