Although the course is relatively short in length, it's still a tough challenge to all levels of golfer. There isn't a single hole that resembles another, and each overall offers you a new chance to use your full bag. There are some risk and reward holes, such as the short par 4's, 5 &8. The par 3 15th which measures 228 yards (Lay up, or go for it). The 16th which you can drive onto the fairway, but risk hitting into tree's. And lastly the challenging the par five 18th which is pretty much uphill all the way, making the 515 yards play a lot longer.

All together with some beautiful scenery over Manchester, it's a fun, yet true test for anyone's golf. And don't forget to take a drink afterwards in the comfortable 19th.

I last played this course about 14 years ago when I was a member. The staff and other members were very friendly and helpful. The tees fairways and greens were in great condition and very tidy. There had been a few minor changes in layout but it was still a good challenge with all the holes being different. The gulley and gamble were my favourite holes and the par 5 18th was a long uphill trek at the end of a 4 hr round in hot sunny conditions on the hottest day of the year. Will certainly return here later in the year.
