15 reviews of Fishwick Hall Golf Club
Played mid March 2015 and holes 1-12 were absolutely soaked through. Shortened tees and winter greens on a few holes. Interesting layout but probably one to avoid in Winter
Brought our Society here recently after hearing good reviews from other society's. What a gem of a course. You need to be accurate here, but a fair and well laid out track, greens had just been scariefied two weeks previously, but made no difference to the quality of the surface which were fast and true. Someone obviously knows what they are doing. The attention to detail in the provision of organisation and catering made this all in all a great day out and is now included in next years fixture list. Try it for yourself.
After playing at Fishwick Hall golf course I came away wanting to play another 18 holes. Arriving at the club with a very warm welcome from all those who were there even though I was just a guest, I felt like a member. The Shop was well stocked with the latest golf equipment and the catering after the round was just what was needed. The course played brilliantly, which was surprising to how much rain had fallen the previous night. I enjoyed the day very much and will be returning very soon to the club knowing it will be another great day.
Just a note to say thanks to you and your team for organising our society visit yesterday.
The whole process or organising with you, the shop and catering with Graham was very good and we all enjoyed our day.
We all treated the course with the respect it deserves and everyone thought it was a great course in excellent condition and very enjoyable to play.
Hopefully we will be welcomed back again in future and we look forward to visiting you again.

I played Fishwick as part of a society day on 30/04/10. As others have said it can be a difficult but interesting course. There are a lot of blind shots and a lot of drives where just getting the big stick out is sometimes not the best option. I found that just being a couple of foot out in you approach shot can mean the difference between a birdie put or a lost ball and a 6 on the card.
The second is a cracking driving hole. The 12th you drive up a steep hill to a blind fairway. I was absolutely shattered by the time I got up to my ball. The only down side to the course was the greens. TBH Ive never played on such poor greens. I think they may have recently done some work on them so ill go again later in the year and see if they have improved.
quite a difficult course requiring lots a thought re shot selection. fairly wide at certain parts of the course but some holes were extremely difficult. the 12th will crucify anyone who doesnt hit it reasonably long and straight !!! the par 3 11 also required a shot to a raised green over a tree in the middle of the fairway !!!!!
not sure how the 9th is stroke index one as its a longish straight flat par 4and is imo one of the easiest hole on the course if the tee shot is ok!!!-only a minor issue though
i dont think its a course for the occasional golfer i struggled and i play regularly !!
decent pro shop-but didnt see a driving range but the practice putting green was fair enough
we played on the £12 per person after 230pm weekend ticket. good value for money- decent catering facilities also
sadly it was too difficult for my 10 year old son so on that basis we wont return until he is a bit older !!!
Played last week using two for ones. Under twenty quid and good value for a course this challenging and interesting.
Great layout (if you like hills!) and a number of ditches, water and OB to keep you on your toes.
Greens were a bit iffy but i expect they will shape well after some decent weather.
Will definately return in the summer for another go.
Nice clubhouse too especially with Warsteiner on tap.
I have already written a report below about the course, but i would like to add my congratulations to our head green keeper and his staff whose work over the last year has significantly improved the drainage and playability of the course. If you are visiting this area or a local who just fancies a change of scenery then you will be most welcome.
Played Fishwick Hall on Sunday 8th September and what a day we had. I organised a Society package for 28 golfers consisting of 12 holes in the morning and 18 in the afternoon. The service from all associated with the club was excellent and members were friendly and keen to offer 'advice'.
The course was in very good condition considering the amount of rain that had fallen the previous couple of days. A special mention about the greens - they were extremely quick and true. Greenkeeper take a bow !!
The first 12 holes are very well thought out with the view from the 2nd tee enough to frighten the most accurate Driver. The 11th and 12th will give anyone an appertite for lunch as you make the steady climb back towards the clubhouse. 13 to 18 are a little bit up and down but with enough interest and dangers still to wreck or make a good score.
In summary I would have to recommend this course as a must for any Society as it will appeal to all levels of Golfer with Clubhouse Bar and Food service to match.
Just spent a lovely 4 and a half hours in the company of very friendly members emjoying a good round of golf. Greens are in very good condition after the work that was done over the winter, and I haven't landed in any of the lakes or streams for weeks! As has been said before, nor mega-long but the first 12 holes really require accuracy. The 12th is the real card wrecker, with the 7th and 17th being easy birdy opportunities. Let's hope summer continues to next weekend at least!!!
Being a member here i believe i can offer an honest opinion of Fishwick. The course plays in two distinct sections. Holes 1-12 are Parkland style which get wet during the winter months. Platforms and winter greens have been used from mid October. From 13-18 the holes are more similar to links, dryer fairways and quicker greens. I love the view from the 2nd tee and hate playing the 9th especially during winter when the drive never rolls. Play it with a member as it isn't worth £26/£31 of anyone's money.
Generally a good quality course- creative layout, some challenging approaches which can leave even the more acomplished golfer in bother- just ask Ryder Cup Captain Mark James who I saw take three to get out of waist-high bunker on the 17th a couple of years ago at a charity event!
Not sure how it plays in winter but drainage is not a problem being so near to the River Ribble, so it plays admirably well into November
Good Course, although needs alot of work during the winter months, ie raising the 11th green due to flooding
A course that does not require long driving,but will certainly test your putting skills.A tight course that requires straight hitting,because most of the fairways have tight fairways and are tree lined.The best holes are the 2nd great view from tee if you ignore the motorway,4th tough teeshot,12th trouble on both sides from tee ending with a Mckenzie green which is tough to read. You can begin to relax after the 13th and start giving your drives the full treatment, but be warned the greens are still very tricky.
