Quality condition not overly long, tough walk in tthe heat

Really enjoyed the course, it's in fantastic condition greens rapid and true, it's a hilly course not overly long must think on some tees instead of pulling the chief.

Would certainly go back

Great day

Apart from a few short drizzly showers, myself & 2 friends had a great bank holiday round at Blackburn Golf Club. Because of the weather the course was extremely quiet, but was in excellent condition . Great value & the bar & pro shop staff very friendly. will definitely pay another visit.

Really nice course with consistent fairways / greens and some clever holes

Our two ball thoroughly enjoyed our morning's golf at Blackburn - just over 3 hours. Amazing bacon butty at the end of the round too!

Some really nice and memorable holes within this clever course and views to die for (Blackpool Tower even) on the lovely day that we played.

A little hilly in places (so an electric trolley or carrying is preferable). Greens and fairways great for this time of year with all the recent rain.

We will be back!

Some good holes with cracking views particularly the 10th a true par 5 which requires a straight long drive. Greens were excellent but could of done with an oxygen tank for the front 9. Extremely hilly

Blackburn In The Wet

Obviously very early in the season but we have played Blackburn a few times and never seen it as wet as today. Given the fact we have had 5 days or pretty good weather for this time of the year we were really surprised how wet it was underfoot..Didn't spoil our fun too much though.

Very wet

Played other courses around the area and none of them hold as much water as Blackburn GC. New professional just joined so very little stock in shop but I'm sure that will change soon, he was very friendly. A couple off the tees were quite difficult to find also. Overall it was good to be out playing although wasn't a true reflection of the game as so many greens were pretty unplayable and the fairways had been spiked (to get rid of the water I would imagine)

Good value winter golf

The ground was still a bit frozen from the previous cold night. In some places the ground was very soft indeed. Winter rules in operation, but all the green open, and some tee beds in use. Very few people out so got round in double-quick time.
