Had a most enjoyable round of golf at Prestwich. Weather was perfect and we only passed one other person playing. As the course was dry, the ball travelled some distance. It is not a long course and there are a number of holes were it is possible, for someone of my ability, to score a birdie or certainly a par.
Didn’t expect it to be Augusta for a tenner and therefore wasn’t disappointed.
Be worth another visit when all the changes are made to the course.
A little tester
More care needed on this relatively short course than you might think. Certainly any wayward tee shots are punished by well placed bunkers, tress lined fairways and the general lie of the rolling course. It's definitely a course to tempt you to improve your score on, and one I'll be back to play again. Plus the 19th offers you a well deserved cooling drink to mull over, just how you didn't manage to beat your handicap.....
Much better courses available in Manchester. Few holes crossed over others and had to cross paths and walks to get to others.
Some fairways when you teed off were very tight plus housing was very close to a number of the holes. Not good for wayward shots!
I would not recommend
I paid £20 for a 2 ball... it was £19:98 to much
As soon as I arrived the man working in the pro shop was arrogant and in welcoming..
he even asked if I actually needed two cards "would one not do" scowling as he said it!
The course layout and conditions are by far the worst I have ever seen in my 15+ years of playing golf!
The worst part of this was that it was a 50th birthday present for my dad. You can imagine how embarrassed I was to turn up to prestwich GC and to be created by this.
We walked off after 9 holes..
I will never be returning again
Quirky course but loved it
A lovely quirky course to play.
Greens where about 2/3 weeks off being bob on.
Some steep hills on a couple of holes but I wouldn't let that put anyone off playing this course.
My only gripe would be recommending that the course puts a bell on the 17th green to let players on the 17th tee know the green is clear, your playing a completely blind shot to the green.
Difficult to navigate for first time players.
Very hilly in parts. Challenging round.
Very well kept greens.
Perfect for beginners
lovely little local course to me. I'm still learning so perfect for me to play off peak without slowing anyone down behind me. Staff were super friendly and helpful. I only played the front 9 but would will deffinately be back for a full 18 there soon.
Hiking boots needed
Pretty and well kept course but very hilly.
Lots of crossing over tees/greens due to close proximity. I would imagine it's difficult to play when busy.
