what can i say
this is a superb course hidden away on the outskirts of Wigan-played today as part of the one group for £20 per person offer per day
not the longest of courses (great for me) but most of the holes require a certain amount of thought as there are very few if any "straight boring par 4s". quite narrow in places especially to the left off most tees.
the 18th is a 150 yard narrow carry over a deep canyon and could destroy any round.
will definately be going back very soon.
suits the high handicapper (im off 20) and played to level which i was pleased about. ive played about 10-12 courses this year mainly in the north west of England and this is easily the best.
no pro shop but there are tees and balls etc in the main building which is a converted small statley home. the staff made me and my 10 year old son feel very welcom and a special thanks to stewardess Marcia. the most helpfulperson i have encountered in a golfclub this year.
decent chipping and putting green practice areas
great catering facilities if reqd and the only reason i have marked the general facilities slightly lower is the absence of a pro shop.
This is a 'must play' private members' course if you're in the area and is a real 'hidden gem'. The course itself is a fair challenge and combines some lovely wood-fringed fairways with a series of open parkland-type holes and a couple of evil little par 3s that will test your patience as well as your skill. Generally it's a fairly straightforward course with plenty of opportunity to score well if you keep the ball in play and, just as you think you've licked it, you're stood on the 18th tee looking down into a cardwrecking canyon that will give you a massive boost if you clear it but will give you nightmares if you don't. The course was very well presented and the clubhouse staff very welcoming and accommodating. We were unable to enjoy a post-round pint as the bar was closed but we'll look forward to that next time - in the meantime, our happy round will live long in the memory.
A quality parkland course which is over 100 years old, quiet and welcoming to visitors who, on arrival, will be impressed with the 13th century moated manor house which doubles as the clubhouse. The course features quality greens and a testing layout, the 'old nine' (1898) present one style of challange as they wind their way through mature trees in a quiet rural setting, the 'new nine' (1998) present a different challenge in an open setting, still quiet and yet challanging due to the usga style greens. The closing hole is one to remember, a par 4 played over a 170yd valley, a good tee shot will leave a 200yard second to a green guarded by a huge 100 year old beech tree.
