Second visit here second early departure for slow play. Visitors slow play this time, last time lady members taking 5 hours a round and chatting on greens they’d finished on. Nice course but walked off after 2.5 hours on tenth. Just about unplayable due to recent rain. Playing off mats but tee boxes looked fine.
Thoroughly enjoyed it , Only downside was winter mats but can be expected after the weather we’ve had
gathers golf club
what a great little golf course a mixture of holes and for the time of year and the recent weather very good will definitely return
Great layout, awful greens
Played this on a hot deal at 3pm. Loved the layout but unfortunately the greens had just been hollatined and so they were absolutely terrible. The practise green filled us with confidence but unfortunately the course greens were a different story. It’s been a cracking week of sun and in some places the course was still extremely soft, imagine this is a shocker to play in winter in a lot of areas. Overall good price and still enjoyed it but wouldn’t go back certainly any time soon / over winter.
Played today after a lot of rain. Unfortunately the fairways were really wet and the rough has not been able to be cut due to the rain. Fully understand the conditions being heavy but didn’t make the playing an easy experience. It’s still a really lovely challenging course and will play again in the future
Have played Gathurst many times before in Opens that is why I chose to bring my Partner, my daughter & her partner but I was disappointed ! The course was very wet & boggy and I know we have had a couple of days of rain ! Greens were very bobbly . Pro shop very helpful and covid measures adhered to .
Lovely conditioned course
Due to the recent amount of rainfall in the area, the course was slightly waterlogged in area but soon dried out quick enough.
Lovely parkland course with decent enough greens, only downside is quite a few holes have internal out of bounds.
Pro very good on arrival. The course is ok but the greens were very slow and the rough needed cutting.
The constant noise from the adjacent M6 on every hole was the main reason i would not recommend it
very good course
I think we played it on the wrong day , blazing hot , the course is quite tight but it's lots of up and downs - quite steep in parts , but i'd deffo play here again. the 19th hole was very nice , cold water , a beer and a nice baguette .
I don't think they like visitors.....
The pro shop employee was very welcoming and introduced me to the course.
It was a very hot day and by hole 5 I was asked to tuck my shirt into my shorts.....by one of the groundkeepers.
I felt it was a very traditional course for members and did not overtly welcome visitors playing on there own.
Lovely place to play
Gathurst is a lovely looking course with some wonderful view across the Douglas valley area, (a beautiful part of Lancashire) With some Panoramic views playing into the green at the foot of the course. Green are in superb true condition and the ice cool beer afterwards topped it all off!!
Past this place on many a journey on M6 northbound is visible from carriage way in valley alongside cannal looks beautiful well kept 18 holes with challenging greens staff super friendly club house benefits from bi folding door opening up on to patio overlooking 18 green highly recommend this venue to anyone
Great course, made to feel very welcome.
fantastic condition , hats off to the green keepers.
Testing course that will have you using all your clubs, can be punishing if you dont make fairway, all in all a course that will improve your overall golf, i may have to join
Guy in pro shop was very helpful, course was in amazing condition. There was a comp on, but a fourball in front lost balls on two occasions and took way to long searching. I was sat on the tee box for way over 5 mins. Watching 4 men walking in circles.
Apart from that the course was in immaculate condition, well worth a visit.
Course has a great layout on front 9 but holes feel squashed together on back. Tee ground uneven and rough given how little golf recently. It was a competition day so challenging flag positions but greens at bottom of course messy, wet and slow. Standing water on at least 4 greens and water coming up under feet even at high point of course. Should be pristine condition but sadly not and still charging £27 for a twilight round. Expected better!
First time I've played this course,, but won't be the last, I've already booked another round.
Testing your ability to play all the clubs in your bag, a nice size course, great green conditions, could have had a few more arrows for the next tee box area, but overall a great course, with friendly staff and members.
Great course fantastic greens looking forward to playing here again soon .
