A Mackenzie masterpiece
This course was one the first the great Dr. Alistair Mackenzie designed and I believe it was one of his finest. The way the course is made to make the most of the natural hazards and make great risk and reward, challenging golf holes is fantastic. I also believe that the owners are making sure much more of the river is visible and in the golfers mind by cutting back much of the foliage, which I think is a great was the preserve and improve the course. Finally the condition of the course was excellent and has one of the best holes in golf, the 16th, so is a absolute hidden gem and is a must play for anyone who amores great course architecture.
The golf course is absolutely flawless. It is just a shame that the hierarchy of the club simply think they rule the world. If you can stay out of the way from the discustingly behaved members then I’m sure you will enjoy your day. The club doesn’t welcome everybody done dare try and play in the week between 11am and 1pm.
I'm used to American courses that have all been designed within the last 20 years. This was an excellent course over 100 years old sitting on a beautiful section of land with a river and surrounding park. Design was great. Staff and members were very nice and welcoming. I was able to enjoy the course and take some pictures instead of having to rush to keep the crowd moving. I researched almost every course in the area, and this course has a unique appeal that is hard to beat.
Bet kept golf secret in Manchester?
Played this Mackenzie course a few times now and it has never disappointed. However none of my playing partners had and were very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the course and the layout. The staff and members were all very welcoming and friendly. Can't recommend it highly enough!
The finest course in Manchester!
Manchester is not a great area for golf courses but Reddish Vale stands out as being of real quality. After five testing holes on undulating ground by the lovely old clubhouse, the routing plunges spectacularly down into the beautiful Tame valley. There follows golf of the highest order over fabulous terrain with the meandering river never far away. Every hole is memorable and completely individual; a real treat for serious golfers. Reddish Vale is a truly great course and such an unexpected find in the Stockport suburbs!
good value interesting course
Played the course early spring. The course was a bit sodden in areas and some bunkers had standing water. There were winter tee boxes on all holes. Some were artificial turf which were well kept and flat. However the ones that weren't were not the best. But it's winter! The course layout was very interesting with elevation changes, blind shots and some very undulating greens. This made for challenging putts! The food was tasty but lacked the presentation.
I would definately recommend playing the course, but ideally wait for dry weather. A good golf course that maintained interest.
A spectacular golf course!
Reddish Vale is a course that deserves to be a lot better known. In and above the beautiful Tame Valley on the outskirts of Stockport the course is full of memorable holes, almost any of which would be lauded as the 'Signature Hole' on some other courses in the area.
6th - a 240 yard par 3 drop shot to a green far bolow one's feet
13th - Unbelievably tough long par 4 to a microscopic green that cannot be seen until you get there!
14th - Spectacular drive from high tee over bend of river.
16th - Dogleg along curving river to green almost completely surrounded by water.
I cannot recommend Reddish Vale enough. A superb day's golf.
