6 reviews of Todmorden Golf Club
What a super course this is, set out on moorland above the town with great views that is in top condition. The greens are second to none locally and for many miles around.
Friendly club well worth a visit.
Having lived in the vacinity for over 3 decades and never visited Todmorden, we have played the course twice in recent times and have to say it is in very good condition. The greens in particular are excellent, and generally the course looks and plays well - why we haven't played it before now seems ridiculous.
Well worth the visit for the money, we will play on a regular basis going forward. I'd class it in the "little gem" category.
We visited Todmorden recently under the 1895 Club arrangements, and have to say the 6 in our party echo the comments of the latest review.
The course is a little gem, and I was in two minds whether to write a review as I'd rather continue to play millionaires golf when we visit! It is in excellent condition, the greens caught us all out as they were so quick and true, and the course presentation generally is that of a "posh" Club.
I can't comment on the locker rooms which were non-existent when we arrived. We were told new ones would be in by the end of June.
We had arranged for simple catering to be provided, and what was provided was more than adequate for our needs.
Everyone we met was very friendly and we will make an extra effort to revisit, despite the distance involved in travelling. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend a visit to anyone.
Played Todmorden with 3 friends at the end of April for the first time in about 20 years, and I have to say it was an absolute pleasure.
The weather was very kind to us, absolutely glorious, meaning we got to enjoy the fabulous views of the town below. I have to say it looked nothing like I remembered, though in fairness, I was unsuccessfully grappling with an umbrella most of the day on my last visit!
The course was extremely tidy and in very good condition considering the time of year, but the amazing thing we all agreed and commented on was the fantastic conditions of the greens. They were unbelievably fast and true as well as receptive, and a hundred times better than just about every course I have played over the winter months. In fact, even in April, they were better than most courses I played at the height of summer last year - how they have achieved this I have no idea, but I tip my hat to their green staff.
The steward and few members that were about were extremely welcoming, including the Secretary and Treasurer who were nothing like any officials in their position I have met before! They were so friendly and an absolute credit to the Club, and even threw a couple of 2 for 1 vouchers our way, which we will definitely be using later in the year when I'm told "the greens are at their best"!!!
The only negatives were that the locker rooms were in a bit of a state, though they are in the process of being completely refurbished and should be ready by late spring - again, we were shown the plans that were afoot! The only other issue was that no food was available, other than a very limited selection of sandwiches, though again I was told if we ring in advance in future, catering will be available.
This is a lovely 9 hole course - 10 actually - and I can't help thinking that if this was an 18 hole course, societies and clubs would be flocking to Todmorden for their trips. It is a pleasure to play.
We look forward to becoming regular visitors, both this season and for years to come.
A 10 hole course (7 and 16 have different greens and tees) set on moorland above the town, Todmorden Golf Club provides some of the most breathtaking views for miles around.
The course itself is tight whilst not overly long, providing a good test of golf for players of all handicaps. The greens are superb, something the ground staff pride themselves on, and the course generally is kept in good conditions. Fairways are not the widest and greens are relatively small, so target golf is a must to score well.
The signature hole 7th, with a long drop from tee to green, can be played with anything from sand iron to driver, depending on the severity of the wind. It provides a stunning view to the town centre and routes out of town in the valley below.
The par 4 fourth also provides a tough challenge, with a sometimes intimidating tee shot over the rocks and a longish second into the green. With the wind against, even the biggest of hitters face a challenge to reach in two.
No par 5s on Todmorden makes scoring low more difficult. Catering is always good and the bar area pleasant, though space restrictions means that changing room facilities are fairly cramped and minimal.
Well worth a trip for the money.
A round at Todmorden is a unique experience in combining a challenging 9 holes with a superb walk with fantastic views. In particular the tee shot at the first and seventh holes rival anything offered by Turnbury if you can imagine that the sea has been replaced with heather. Very friendly Great Place to be.
