Wet weather

felt rushed

the course and facilities are superb and the staff ect are excellent and welcoming. however as non members we felt a little rushed for the majority of the round with members taking shots before we had finished on the green and then standing waiting right behind you on the tee even though we couldn't play due to people in front. this happened on a number of occasions.

spoilt the enjoyment of what should have been a lovely day on a superb course.

One fantastic golf course

Pleasington is a wonderful golf course at any time, but it is in great condition at the moment. The Greens are tricky and slick but a wonderful surface to putt on. The weather was Autumnal, the staff were friendly and a great day was had.

Shadow of Former Self

Greens slow and bobbly.

Bunker uneven distribution of sand.

Some course furniture and/or safety hand rails are tacky below what is expected at a club of similar prestige.

The Open Regional Qualifiers will not be rushing back!

What has happened to such a wonderful course that played so well no matter the weather. It was the go too course yet even after a long dry spell and then some rain, the greens are still slow and a bit bobbly at this time of year? You can accept slower greens if they run truer than perfect, but to have them bobbly from even 8-10 feet on one occasion is unacceptable. Anything over 25 feet is bobbling and difficult to adjust to after playing Longridge.

Yes Longridge. They charge £12.50 per round so I played a few rounds to get used to the British conditions, only to go play Pleasington at £45 per round and have a worse playing surface. Sure the holes are better but it’s not (just) a walk. I want to test myself before going to Fairhaven, then Carnoustie.

I feel I have wasted this day and played two at Fairhaven as it held the Open Qualies and although not a better golf course, far superior and ahead in terms of playability and condition. Almost as good as what Pleasington used to be when I played in the early 2000’s in tournaments. Always played so true and lies were always fair, bunkers, fairways, rough. Now, it seamed to be a lottery. Very sad as I was really looking forward to playing an old favourite.

I cannot recommend at the price and condition to anyone but rich mid/high handicappers who aren’t as serious about the golf. That was the point of Pleasington though, you payed extra, not for views, Longridge, or layout, Duxbury Park or Manchester GC. It was the championship level of quality when the ball reacts as it’s supposed to because it’s been maintained for golf, not just to look pretty. A low handicappers course where high handicappers could still play as it’s not long but needs thinking around.

My contacts around who have played all are in similar despair! Please, Pleasington...get it back to what it was 10-15 years ago. Don’t waste a gem. The course was pretty empty for a sunny Sunday in August. Thought it would have been backed up and when it wasn’t, that was my first clue to the disappointment. If you did it just ten years ago, why not do the same as then? Just get out the old plans and follow them.

If the Course Superintendent has retired, beg him to consult. Lancashire doesn’t have top rate inland courses. Some well maintained ordinary ones, plenty, but top bracket (although lower top bracket- 77 in golf monthly around 2000 in the U.K. ‘s 5000 courses.

Low handicappers, let it be known or else all inland Lancashire will miss out as people come to play Pleasington and play Wilpshire or Clitheroe too. Now they’ll just stick to the coast. Sad miss. But within the clubs power to bring it back to a real diamond again.

Great inland links!

Great day at this challenging course - course was running fast and greens were very good. There are some amazing views and some great holes. Pace of play was good given it's not an easy track. Would deff go back again. Nice pint afterwards as well!

Not what I thought it would be.

Surprisingly this is a past open qualifying venue but for some reason the past 2 times I have been the greens have been really bobbly and inconsistent. The bunkers looked like they have just been forgot about which is not how they should be maintained. The drainage is another issue aswel. Very surprised to be honest I bet the members are really annoyed at the price they have to pay aswel. The only good thing is the layout this could be a really good course with proper work done to it. Also range was shut when I went so only had a net to hit a couple of shots into.

Twilight Golf

A tee of time 4.5 hours before dark should be sufficient to have a fairly successful knock about. Alas, the pace of play was not great- while a few groups let this single golfer through, a youth and an adult pair were unaware of the etiquette clearly- searching for balls, waiting for greens to be cleared on par 5 when it was quite obvious they were not able to reach them. Mercifully the 2nd half of the round sped up, and a few more courteous players allowed me to stroll down the 18th in approximately the direction I think my shot went, as the light was very poor.

I wonder if Pleasington have considered a twilight rate!

Otherwise usual nice things to say- course in decent nick, greens a little better than previous visit, bunkers still poor. Tried the top fairway on 7 this time- the 'window' in the trees really helps the line- a good mid iron does the trick.

An August afternoon.

Greens very soft due to rain the previous evening and the morning of this late afternoon round. Some people clearly well rehearsed in repairing their pitch marks, unfortunately.

The course wasn't massively busy, but playing a one-ball does mean it is easy to catch the group ahead, who generously let me through immediately.

The course is not in bad nick, except unnoticed bunkers which i think have drainage problems as they never seem to be remotely dry.

Challenging but lovely

Well laid out course with varying types of interesting hole. Beautiful setting. Hilly in places so a good walk. Greens not as fast as I would have expected for a top course. Challenging course for the average golfer. Difficult par 3 holes.

Evening Golf

Pleasington have lofty ambitions to be a top 100 course. It's not there yet- drainage in a few places seems to be an issue, and the greens were relatively bobbly when putting.

The pace of play wasn't too bad, for an evening tee Off - I did catch up the tail end of the competition on that day.

There are a couple of great holes, and a few rather ordinary ones, too. The nines are a little imbalanced, with three par fives as holes 5-7-9. The back nine is 33 shots.

Overall, recommended- at a reduced rate- I'd be a little disappointed at the published standard green fee (£45)

Perfect weather

Top class course.

Really excellent course, could not fault anything about this course, the attention to detail was top notch little things like a map of every hole on each tee, very clear easy to see 150yd markers, every single bunker was spot on with the bunker edges cut nice and neat, ball washers/bins/water taps, only small things but makes a massive difference.

The fairways are very good and the greens although not lightening fast are in excellent condition.

Some really superb views.

We walked and although there are a few hills it did`nt seem to bad.

Very well stocked pro`s shop and really nice club house.

Everyone from people working in pro`s shop to the bar staff seemed friendly.

Would highly recommend playing this course.
