Tough challenging course

Was allowed straight on which was great.
1st is irons off tee due to road.
Then a gradual meander around the course making your way up to a climax at 16 with panoramic views.
A few blind shots where a picture on tee would have helped.
Otherwise a great day's golf
Thanks Oldham see you again in summer

Course almost to ourselves

We booked a two ball last minute as the sun was shining and we could get a range of tee times at Oldham. This was our second time there and all we enjoyed it a lot more as we had a better idea of the layout and where to aim tee shots. The course is on good condition although the tee boxes are a bit rough on a few of the holes. Played reasonably well and enjoyed the mix of holes and the doors of play was excellent as it was so quiet. Excellent value for money and looking forward to going back.

Nice course to play.

Oldham is a nice course to play very hilly on 11th to 16th and and these holes are all blind. Aiming at white maker post and not knowing where your ball as landed, even when you know your shot was a good one and when you get to your ball it's not there very frustrating. But would play it again in the future.

Not as good as it was

Last time I played the course was in superb condition. That was about 14 months ago.
On arrival I got the third degree about how much I payed and was told it was too cheap and shouldn’t be up for that price (hot deal £13). Hopefully this is just a mis communication in the staff and won’t happen again.
Once on the course found the pace of play to be pretty good. Fairways were in good condition. No semi rough to speak of and fairly deep rough if you go off line.
Greens were slow and woolly in general apart from the of one or two which were lighting fast.
Also still not a fan of the ban of drivers from the first tee. I can kind of understand it but several clubs are in a similar position and will still allow drivers to be used.
I hope they can pick back up to where they were previously, unfortunately I won’t be making another visit.

Challenging back 9

great course but tough for a high handicap especially if you have bad weather as we did on the back 9. Back 9 all up hill but great views and challenging holes. Everyone very friendly who we came across and not very busy either which is always a win!

Hilly but good

I really enjoyed Oldham.
There are a lot of hills, blind shots & no par 5's, but it was an enjoyable round.
The front 8 are fairly gentle, a few undulations, but nothing silly. From the 9th it goes up hill & that's where it gets tough.
I loved the quirkiness of some of the holes & the view from the top over Lancashire is breathtaking.
Definitely worth a visit if you're fit.

Good course prepare to Hill Climb. great for a leg workout

great to get out played twice after opening again. The back 9 is very tricky as there are probably 5 holes that are blind greens 12,13 and 15 are hard. great views and i like it because although hard work it is a great workout on the way around. Pretty steep course. Hard on the calfs but worth it

Good to be out golfing again

First time out for months and started with 4 pars!!! Almost like two courses in one with the second nine being very hilly and in my opinion too many blind holes. Coupled with the rough and the slope really easy to have balls disappear. Some really good fun holes though and accuracy is important. I’d happily play there again and know to keep left of most of the fairway markers To save some balls - and strokes.

Impressed

First time at Oldham and really impressed. Friendly welcome, with pointers to help us round. Tees clearly marked, fairways great condition and greens lovely. Few blind tees with signs to assist, we found it clear to make our way round. Will definitely be back. The views are fantastic.

Tough climb on a windy day

The front 9 is a wide open flat parkland style course, very forgiving, greens and fairways are in ok condition.

The back 9 is a lot more challenging with steel slopes and blind tee shots. Great views.

Would play again but on a less windy day
