Decent course, not exceptional

Reasonable course, little boggy in parts and have played on better greens but not too bad.

Hidden Gem

We always make a trip to Blackburn GC. It’s always a nice place to have a round. A great variety of holes. I wouldn’t say it was a hilly course but it does have a lung busting hill back end of the back nine. The course is always kept nicely with green keepers working away. There was sand on the greens but they ran well. No problem with the sand it’s just that time of year and it has to go on at some point in the year. Clubhouse was very welcoming even with the new restrictions. The steward couldn’t do enough for us.
All in all a brilliant day!!!

Recommend

Although a bit of a challenge to find a few holes and tees. This is a brilliantly maintained course, I paid £15 per person and consider that a bargain compared to other recent courses visited.
Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend anyone to visit. Front 9 is a bit hilly but is more downhill on the back 9.

Improved overall

Enjoy playing here. Fairways are superb, greens are getting better each week. Like how the ground staff have cut away some heavier rough this season. Also, some of the colours flowering around the course are lovely.
Staff are always helpful and friendly.

Some great holes

Greens were good and I will expect them to be excellent by next week with the bit of rain we have had. Some really nice elevated tee boxes and greens. Course was in good condition considering we havnt had much rain. Green keepers were out working whilst we were playing which was nice to see them looking after the course. Would definitely reccomend. Currently doing takeaway food as well which was very nice. I reccomend the spicy chicken burger

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

Much improved course

Made to feel very welcome here, on and off the course. Clubhouse staff were very friendly.
The course has improved this year with better drainage and first class ground maintenance.
