Good course and great test many holes follow each other so its very interesting to play, condition gets better eàçh time will play again soon.
Has come on a huge amount in last 18 months. Back to looking like a golf course and a busy little golf club. Wide fairways in good condition with excellent lies. Well designed golf course forces you to think about positioning of tee shot on nearly every hole rather than just blasting a driver. Two cracking par 3's from back tees on back nine. Pro has indoor teaching area with Trackman.
This is a good test of golf, nearly all the holes follow each other so they are on there own, the course needs more directional signs but is great value, friendly clubhouse to. Thanks Ingol
The course gets better each time we play, yes some tees have a little ware but fairways and greens are fine, a tight course and a good test, as for the new owners I've known them as friends for years, they are great lads golfers through and through good luck to them, if you love your golf in Lancashire then go play and give them your support.
Had an excellent round of golf on Friday 16/8/13.
The owners are transforming the course back to how it used to be,
after 3 years neglect by the previous owner.
Hence the green fees which are ridiculously cheap present excellent value.
The course is in mature parkland with some oak trees hundreds of years old.
A few of the holes have water features which tests the golfer for accuracy.
We had a tasty meal in the lovely Restuarant to end a great day.
We look forward to return in the near future.
Good day to all.
Ingol Golf Club has been taken over a company based in Preston,headed up by two brothers, they are former golf professionals having been based Penwortham Golf Club and also latterly owned, the Golf Factory (based in Preston) and then more recently the Lytham Golf Centre (Nevada Bobs) based in Lytham.
Having left that site now, I'm extremely pleased to inform you all that every effort will be made to ensure a bright and long future for the golf club.
Re branding will be in place and a whole new structure and set of core values will be implemented to this club.
A modern day golf club with facilities and customer service to match will be brought to Ingol Village, varieties of membership packages will be available and this really will make this facility a must visit for not just local's, but the North West on the whole.
To keep up to date with the progress the club is making and get to know more about the team and strategies the club will implement over the coming weeks/months.

On behalf of the all the team here at Ingol Village Golf, we wish everybody a successful 2013 season and we hope to see a few of you guys over the coming years.
The best £13.50 u will spend! Turned up to play 2day got straight on, course in great condition, a bit of a maze but this added to the fun. Could have done with better guides to each hole! I struggled to locate the pin on a few holes. Still had an ok round, clubhouse a bit dated but staff pleasant. Check it out.....GJ.
Played today at Ingol, first time since July and the course has suffered with the weather and was a real test, very wet underfoot and lots of balls lost due to plugging. Its definately a summer course.
Ive always enjoyed its charms, with some very challenging holes and friendly atmosphere. With it now becoming a Pay-n-Play it seems good value. It was £13.50 and I could have had a meal for a few quid more, and bearing in mind its championship standard, in the past has hosted a few big comps, and the fact there is no local munis, its a bargain.
As Im local to the course I can expand on the 'houses' issue. The course was actually there first and then alot of land developed after for housing. Some of it is common land and owned by the council.
I recommend every gets down and has a round at Ingol as sadly I heard the owners, Trust Inns, are looking to sell of a large portion of land for housing and keep it as a nine hole. It does appear also that the money spent on the place has been reduced, as its not as neat and tidy as it used to be. Such a shame!
Played yesterday, after some wet weather and it was not in great nick. It seems that they are moving from membership to muni, and sadly it shows, tee's were poor, pitchmarks on greens were mostly unrepaired as were divots on the fairways. Too much grass on the fairways but could be due to heavy rain 3 days ago. Quite tight but not as bad as thought it would be from some reports on here. The worst thing was the roaming Chavs, out with 2 clubs hacking in all directions and the random Yoof, one who was driving a buggy around the course at breakneck speed, presumably he was employed but to do what we'll never know. The dress code is ignored of course, which to some is great, to others its the end of the world,
That said for £12 its value.
Played Ingol today for the first time. I did think it was in good condition, with nice fastish greens, and well maintained fairways. I thought that the course was very tight, with mostly narrow holes with little opportunity to really hit a screamer!
Some really daunting holes too, with houses literally 20yards to the side of Tee beds, so you gotta be careful (i fluffed a couple, and one hit a roof and one landed in a driveway!).
There is one really good par three'er, where you hit off an elevated tee down a big drop to the green.
One thing to bear in mind though when you play here is that its a long complicated walk round. We cheated a little and rented a buggy, but its location amongst a few housing developments means that the course winds round loads.
All said and done though, its a good course. Would play here again. Nice friendly well stocked bar. 8/10
Played the course 12-5-07, having read earlier comments i felt i was on a totally different course.The course was in excellent condition,enjoyed the course immensley ,fairways were lush and greens were in excellent nick.Well worth a visit and will definately play there again.
Pro shop was a bit pricey and not well stocked.
Bar service was very good and the food served was excellent along with the service.
I would not hesitate playing Ingol again and would definatly recommend playing there.
Ingol is one of the oddest courses you will ever play. It is crammed in between a series of housing developments, you cross various roads to get to different parts of the course. There is no course map on the card so first time visitors really are guessing as to where they are going. That is something they really should look at, as until you play it you won't understand the difficulty you have in getting from hole to hole. It really is quite bizarre.
That said, there are some very good holes on this course, with a bit of thought going into hole design. Iron play off the tee will feature on many players round as there are some extremely tight holes, but that said there are still some holes that you can open up with a driver on.
When we played it was in pretty reasonable nick. The greens ran pretty well, the tees could have been better but overall it was ok. Off course was fine, we were made to feel welcome by the pro and staff, and the catering was very good.
I wouldn't rush back to play it as I did find it such a bizarre layout, but by the same token I wouldn't say "never again" nor would I discourage anyone from taking a look at it.
Played Ingol 10.12.06. Found the course very wet and ball plugged wherever it landed (but we expected this of any course for this time of year) The course is surrounded by houses and I thought I was going to play irons all the way round but when I got there it was'nt as bad as i'd of thought. Greens were in quite good condition as well. Played off mats but NO winter greens. £15.00 a round was great value for money at a weekend. Will play it again for definate. Pro-shop welcoming but very disappointed with the bar, would'nt let one of our members in because he had a collarless shirt on, which I thought was a bit petty as he looked better dressed than the other 7 of us. I played quite well and so enjoyed it, another member of our 8 party had a nightmare and so hated it. Its all down to the individual.
When i last played at Ingol in September of 2005, the tees, fairways and greens were in terrible condition. This golf course has far too many housing developments on it. You spend much of your time making sure your tee shots don't hit surrounding rooftops rather than concentrating on hitting fairways. I definately won't be rushing back.
I had a bad experience of this course. I felt that there were too many narrow tee shots, almost every hole had out of bounds on it. And the surrounding houses spoilt the scenery. With no map on the score card and very few marker posts on the fairways it was tough to get an idea of where to play your tee shot on many occasions.
I certainly didn't enjoy my experience in between the houses!
Fantastic course - not as scary as I'd been led to believe. Greens were in tip-top condition. Very friendly service in clubhouse - no snootiness here!
The course is a very good 18 hole course. some holes are a bit crammed in but it is definatly a top course. very testing course and designed well greens in good condition and quite cheap for the quality.
Played this course recently and the fairways and greens are in very good condition. They should get even better as the work done over the past few years beds in.
Food is excellent - try the gammon, egg and chips.
Very friendly atmosphere.
Some tough holes, with an intimidating "road hole" to test the faint-hearted.
After a difficult winter, it's a surprise to see a course with quite decent greens in this area.
A tough test of golf - you can't afford many poor tee shots - but very varied, with some picturesque holes on the back nine.
Few holes run near to one another, so you won't hear "fore" very often and there are no annoying waits to play shots while a nearby green clears.
The course is in a transition period, the water hazards were mostly filled in and the greens were very worn. The Weekend rate of £25 is very excessive for a course not in good nick. The Par 3 12th is a good test but there was a lot of work being done to the green and surrounding area. Why dont courses drop there prices when they are re-developing parts of a course??
This is a fairly tough test of golf, with some excellent holes (the 2nd and 18th are particularly testing). At the moment the fairways are superb and the greens are just coming into good condition. This course has the best variety of holes I've played in the last few years and the back nine has some very picturesque holes. Friendly clubhouse with snooker, pool and squash.
Undergone recent improvement and will appeal certainly to society golfers.Very little rough and well prepared course, though can still be a little wet in winter.Threads its way through a modern housing development,it can be a case of guess where the clubhouse is if it starts pouring down and you want to get in.Modern single storey clubhouse, beer o.k. but mixed grill not too brilliant.
