As a regular visitor (and NOT a member of the club) I have to take issue with Roger W -18/03/2015. I have only ever enjoyed every aspect of visiting Delamere Forest GC. The Pro and his young assistant are always exceptionally friendly, very knowledgeable( advice and tips are freely and enthusiastically given!) and always accommodating - particularly when I've arrived (as on more than one occasion) and there's an inter-club match in session. This is a well organised and disciplined club and I wholeheartedly endorse their welcoming but fair approach. Thankfully Delamere Forest retains the spirit of a traditional club, whilst fulfilling the expectations of visiting golfers to ensure a memorable and enjoyable round or two is always experienced. The Pro & his assistant are a credit to this wonderful club!
Played course today in good weather. Course in good condition. Excellent greens. Catering staff very friendly but Pro and assistant Pro never once smiled or welcomed us to the club... They were more interested in warning us about slow play and not getting in the way of a team event on the course... We were waived through 3 groups by the way, so no slow play from us! The fees cost me and my golf partner £90 but for the people providing a "service" in the shop, manners cost nothing!
Played in August, 2011. Easy to get on and very reasonable green fees. This is a course in a lovely setting and in great condition. Greens were fast without being impossible, and were full of subtle undulations that made reading a really good challenge.
There's a demanding start, with a hight proportion of holes on the front nine over 400 yards, though including some short par fives. The downhill dogleg 9th has an enjoyable drive, and the back nine is a lot of fun to play, with more hilly country coming into play. The 14th is really pretty.
Definitely worth coming back. Well appointed clubhouse - nice food, clean and smart locker room, and fabulous views of four holes from the lounge windows.
This is a lovely course, and given the recent wet weather. There are some lovely holes on this course, and the views are terrific. Greens were really true and surprisingly fast for the time of year. I wasn't impressed by the welcome or the catering, but the view from the clubhouse made even that part of the day enjoyable.
Yes, I'll be back
We played at Delamere on 02 dec 2009, following the wettest November in recorded history, altough you would not have known that from the condition of the course, it was immaculate, and the greens were absolutley superb. We played after a competition at Styal was not played due to the course being closed, rang Delamere and the proffesional was fantatsic and went out of his way to accomodate us.
All of the holes are fantastic, some of them will probably make your all time favourite top 10.
The par 4 14th is exceptional, but siome hills in the background and you could be at Gleneagles !!!
Will defintaley try to get back there next year and am telling all my friends, you will be too after you have played!!
In short an amazing course, that plays like a summer course even in winter.
Played on 23 September 2009. The strange mixture of early rain, brilliant sunshine and a 25 minute gusty wind followed by complete calm did not detract from enjoying a lovely course.
Undulating heathland and excellent greens combine to make the course a good challenge and there are some superb holes, the par 4 14th is outstanding.
Clubhouse and facilities were excellent and I can also recommend the catering.
We played on a windy and showery day in July but despite this we had an excellent morning's golf. I agree with most of the previous comments. It is a beautiful, clearly mature course with fabulous views and in really good condition. Although not long it is a good challenge being quite hilly at times with narrow fairways in places, undulations and very testing rough which was probably a little too much on the thick side because of the lack of dry weather. The greens were excellent.
We used the changing rooms which were very clean and well kept - didn't use the clubhouse. There was no problem about using the practice facilities with free balls on the range and a good size putting green close to the first tee.
The staff were very helpful and friendly and so were the members. It just feels like a really nice place to play golf with a great course to match. I'd play again without any reservations.
Set in real Footballer Wives Country in the middle of Cheshire, this is a couse which will really test your game. Delamere Forest isn't actually a forest as such, the course is a heathland course with the heather and gorse that you might expect at Sunningdale, combined with the dunes, humps and undulations of a links course. In fact, when the wind got up in the afternoon, it was like playing a seaside links!
Very pleasant club with a clubhouse overlooking the course and a nice terrace. They are doing a few renovations at the moment and building a new pro-shop (which should be completed at time of writing). The staff were all very friendly there is a lot of history. Generally very nice and classy in an understated sort of way.
We played this course as a group of 20 on 29th September and were most impressed with both the course and the Club personnel we met. There is a good practice ground by the 10th tee with balls provided - very handy as we started there.The course is links style with many undulations and a number of blind shots. The rough is very unforgiving if you stray not too far off line. It was in excellent condition as were the greens and we had a very enjoyable afternoon. The clubhouse has magnificent views of three holes and is very comfortable.
We enjoyed the experience very much and would strongly recommend it.
Our society played the course as the first in a 3 course tour and all 22 players agreed it is one of the best we have played in the 10 years we have been in existence. Very similar to the Coxmoor championship course in Nottinghamshire. Every hole has something of interest and the greens are excellent to putt on but not easy. What we cannot vouch for is how wet it will be in the winter months but the first w/end in Oct. excellent.
Off course you will find the staff as helpful as you could ever wish for.

A jewell in the heart of the forest.
Magnificent course, especially when the rhododendrons are out, which form a wonderfully scenic back-drop to many of the holes.
Course is not long, a couple of the par 5's are easily obtainable in 2, however it is tight and consequently accuracy is at a premium. Stray into the rough and you are well advised to take your medicine.
Greens were in fantastic condition, very receptive, very true and very slippery from the wrong side of the hole.
Great facilities, wish I was a member!
This has to be one of the finest courses in the country... October everywhere else shut... you would not know it had rained, drainage that good..
Brilliant Greens.. still lighting in Oct..
Outward nine.. long and exacting... backward nine,
shorter and exhilarating... Many blind shots..
reminded me of an Heathland HILLSIDE... cannot pay
it a better compliment... Facilities being updated
.. beer and food cheap...Winter Golf.. there cannot be anything better... can't wait to try the
Greens in Summer...
A superb course for winter golf - it never closes - it is delightfully quiet in the summer months. The outward nine are long, open, heathland holes, with impressive views over the surrounding forest. The back nine have a different feel, being shorter holes, skirting the edge of the woods. The sandy soil of the area drains well, making the greens very fast in the summer. The facilities at the clubhouse are rather old fashioned, but after a good round of golf it is very pleasant to sit outside the spike bar with a cold drink and look out over the course spread before you.
