Played the course over Easter. Bargin! Why bother going to the range, when you can play this course. Sure the greens were tOp dressed and not good. Did it matter? Not a jot. It was a lot of fun and everyone I met was really friendly. Best played with the likes of a sky caddie (I didn't have one), there are blind shots, so range to the greens is difficult, unless you walk to see and then back to the shot. I found it easy to navigate between the holes with the scorecard, but would find it taking timeif busy, as there are shots over others playing a different hole. Overall, it is definitely worth playing for the green fee.
perhaps a little biased, but i enjoyed playing Prestwich so much that i joined as a member. Great little course with a variety of holes, some are very hilly and others are flat, my favourite is the 18th, short downhill par 3, great way to finish!
Played the course between christmas and new year and loved it! the course was a bit wet, but i enjoyed it immensely. Staff were helpful and friendly. The course was a breath of fresh air every hole is different and driver is not the club to use off every par 4 the course is quite tight. Will definately come back in the summer. Green fees £10.00 bargain!!!!!!!!
clubhouse is a bit dated and may not have seen a new carpet sinc the 60s but i liked it and the staff were nice.it is a mature parkland course with a couple of good holes.liked the first and the par 3 18th - good way to finish.alot of blind shots though and cris crossing of holes.a taxi should be provided between some holes!!
was looking forward to playing this course but it was a big let down do not play this course lots of blind holes you cross most fairways with balls flying over your head its a wounder no one gets hit on this course bar staff great shop staff not so great bar was shut after the round which is not a good sign
Played this course for the first time and the last! The course is a joke. You end up walking more than you play the course. With the hills and sheer drops you havn't got any idea where the greens are and when you get on them it's a lottery where your put goes as they are in a bad way. The course starts off really well looks and plays well after that that's where the joke happens.
Sorry Prestwich you where a big let down>
This course will always hold a special place in my heart, as I scored my first-ever hole-in-one at #11 on 25-July-2001.
The management and staff were very friendly and the course is in fine condition.
Visitors should be very aware of the local rules before playing, as several fairways criss-cross. Be prepared to yield to players on adajacent holes.
Holes 3 through 6 might be the most challenging four-hole stretch I played in the UK. Don't be deceived my the 210-yard directional marker on No. 3. This hole is straight uphill, so a 250-yard shot is recommended. Anything short of the crest of the hill is likely to roll back into the rough.
Holes 4 through 6 are par-threes that play 210 to 225 yards from the yellow tees. Unless you hit a wood very straight, I'd advise taking a long iron, even if it means laying up short of the green. There is a lot of trouble lurking around and behind the greens.
I want to thank Dave Morris for the opportunity to play Prestwich and wish him a very happy retirement!
