not for the unfit type of golfer, this is a really good course with a hilly terrain it tests most parts of your game, its got to be the best municipal course anywhere around greater Manchester on par with most all private courses & in summer even better
Play far too slow. Too many bookings taken
Started play 20 minutes late due to a queue at the first tee despite paying in advance for a tee time. 4 hours later only on 13th hole so decided to leave then. Disappointing as this is a lovely testing course in good condition. Sadly will play elsewhere in the future.
the course is excellent as I have played it before But when I arrived in the car park I was greeted with notice saying pay & display which was £3 for over 3hrs which you need as it takes 4hrs minimum to play the course this has only just been sanctioned by the council I told the guy at the golf shop if I've got to pay to park my car I wont be playing there again this was never the case as it means your round now costs an extra £3
this course is not for the timid it is a really well looked after course with no shortage of hills but well worth having a testing game at anytime, with good greens, you will know you have played it for sure
This is a cracking course. Although a municipal, course was in great condition particularly after the poor spring weather we have had. Greens were a little slow but understandable being the bank holiday and hot weather. It is a fun course where you can have a go at some relatively short par 4s but there is also danger. Front nine are undulating whilst the back nine have a few ascents and descents. 11th,12th and 15th require a good tee shots to carry a deep, wide ravine. Played here over the winter and had a good day but vowed to come back in summer conditions. I was not disappointed.
Course in excellent condition
Greens very good course was in great shape all round
Best public golf course
Arriving to Manchester to attend the British Open, we felt that a quick golf game would help overcome the jet lag. Searching on GolfNow we found the nearest golf course just a few miles from the hotel and found a gem! The course is beautiful, scenic, good layout and challenging. Lots of uphills (it seems) and blind greens! Back nine has a four call over holes where you walk through the canopies the forest to reach the other side. The best golf outing we have ever experienced!
The course was in excellent condition and weather perfect the day we played
The staff was friendly and recommended a course map, this is needed for the first time course player, as the course is hilly, with many blind tee`s.
I will definitely be back.
Great course...very hilly but a great leg work out at the same time...unless you remember to get a buggy
Had a fantastic round of golf at Heaton Park. The course is hilly with lots of blind shots. The par 3 12th is an unbelievably beautiful and challenging hole - one of my favourite holes I've ever played. The course for the most part is very challenging but with some tame par 4s to finish. It is in excellent condition - couldn't fault it. The only drawbacks were the lack of signage - we got lost a couple of times, and the lack of a map either on the scorecard or the tee to show the layout of the hole. Would definitely recommend!
A brute of a course but forgiving at the same time
First off, if you're pulling/pushing your own trolley you'll know about it by the end of the round, this is a up and down course but it's a fair challenge with some fantastic driving positions. The second 9 is a real test of course management and nerve but hit a good shot and you'll keep that smile for a few holes.
One point to note, the pay and play price was £5 cheaper than booking with Teeofftimes which is disappointing. Fair play to the club Pro for calling it out. Come one Teeofftimes, get it together. That can't be right??
Superb challenge of a course.
Very well kept. Superb greens. Spectacular scenery.
Really nice course, but make sure you are ready for some exercise! Lots of hills to climb.
One recommendation would be to include a map on the course card and a map of each hole at each tee. We played the 16th to the 18th green because they were so close together and the 16th tee was not visible from the tee.
But great value for money and good fun.
The course has a lot of holes were you have a blind tee shot so a score card is necessary. The course was in brilliant condition for April, really well looked after. Some brilliant holes. Looking at the length of the course, don't be disheartened they were brilliant. Didn't really have the best round but loved it. Got a municipal course outstanding
Its always a good round at Heaton Park, the sun was out and it was a great day to play. The course is a challenge but enjoyable with some interesting holes. I think the good weather had brought everyone out as I was stuck behind two 4 balls. Will defo play there again.
Golf as it should be - challenging and fair
Course is quite hilly but was quiet when we played. Heaton park was at its immaculate best. Some extremely challenging holes - especially the par 3's on the back 9. Amazing value for money and highly recommended.
Some views are quite breathtaking and there is plenty of wildlife around the park. Definitely a challenging course but rewarding at the same time.
First time I have played the course and it exceeded my expectations for a municipal golf course
Gem of a course with a hike and a half!
This course is a gem, some great holes. Considering the recent weather it was in outstanding condition. No doubt I would have given it 5 stars if I had played in the summer. Very hilly course! You know you have played a hard walking course. Some of the holes are really tiring. However it makes every shot interestingly different. You have to be fit to play the course though. Had great time, fully recommended! £10 an absolute steal!
