Good course to play
Very enjoyable course it was very dry but this is not their fault
Course surprised me has had American golf management so when I booked was expecting bog standaard municipal any way first nine up and down good test has tee off in to wind a lot , greens were good and a number of water hazards , water had range has I have said American golf pro shop , I think course is work in progress A MUST PLAY.
Decent course, greens were running well, fairways were good. It’s quite a wide forgiving course but if you go off line, say bye to your ball as the rough, semi rough is horrendous. We flew through the opening nine holes and had momentum going. However going past the 1st hole to the 10th and there were 3 groups of 4 teeing off. When we got to the 10th 3 groups of 3 had materialised from nowhere. Spoke to 2 of the groups who said they had been told to start on the 10th by reception. This led to lots of standing around and waiting 10-15mins on each hole to tee off. Spoke to reception at end of round who didn’t seem bothered. Spoiled a good round
Needs work in some places
Conditions good overall but some parts of the course need to improve
Needs some TLC and better drainage
Firstly, the good news. £10 to play on a Saturday morning at pretty much anytime you wanted, has to be a bargain.
Bad news was that only 14 holes open, (which was made clear on booking), so you had to play some holes twice. Tees aren't great, but usable. Fairways mostly ok, but some boggy areas that need better drainage. Bunkers are generally poor and need more sand and raking. Greens slow and bumpy and in need of more attention and maintenance.
The back nine is generally in better condition and a bit more interesting, so it would be better playing that twice.
Conclusion is, with a bit more investment and better everyday maintenance, it could be a very good course, that you would be happy to pay double.
Absolutely bang on. The course layout is brilliant. Maintenance needs to be better. Now that American golf is in the equation this may change. Fingers crossed
Will not play here again
I would not recommend this course. The tees were just muddy patches - no attempt to rotate tee positions to avoid over use. The front nine fairways were the worst kept I have ever come across on any course in the whole Bolton area. Virtual quagmire is some places and little effort made in installing any suitable drainage systems. The pathways between holes were very poor - anywhere with a dip was just mud. The bunkers did not have sand - just weeds and could not have had any attention at all in the previous 12 months. The back nine were marginally better but certainly not enough to make me want to play this course ever again or to recommend it to anyone
Worst ever played
Like playing in a wet swamp. On the first 9 wondered if they owned a mower. The tee boxes were 3 inches long couldn't see the difference between the fairways and the rough. Last 9 better and could see the potential - the pictures were obviously taken on a day that did not reflect a normal day.
Coring the greens 13 of the greens on temp and then told when I arrived it would of been cheaper to book direct teeoff times need to get a grip of this because a lot of clubs are now using BRS with no booking/ admin fee. Not very happy.
Avoid this course at all costs
No words to describe this course really apart from its a golf course of a very poor standard,muddy tee boxes that have,nt seen a mower for weeks fairways sub standard full of water bad drainage being the problem here,bunkers full of weeds and what sand that is in these bunkers was hard and compact overall not a course to play decent golf on,if I was the professional here I would leave and find a job at a decent golf club.
The course is tricky
Was our first time at the course so had no clue where the greens were and had no map on the score card and as it was hilly couldn't see a lot of the greens
Great course, although typical of a municipal UK course
Course layout was really nice with some interesting holes. Not too challenging, so ideal for a golfer with a mid-high handicap to have a social round. Encouraged a lot of risk taking in terms of driving greens.
Condition of the greens was good too, I've played more prestigious courses very recently that have been a lot worse.
The only downside is that the pathways and bunkers were poor quality and needed work. Clubhouse was old and shabby, we didn't want to stick around for a bite to eat afterwards.
Would I play it again? Yes probably.
I played this course a couple of years ago whilst it was under reconstruction. The 4 new holes are nice and the greens were decent.
The bunkers were very poor and a lot were unplayable being gur
I would play here again and have to say at £9 to play it was great value for money
Booked for £10 each for two.great time at 09.30.no play hold ups but bunkers need attention and greens had just been treated.great layout on new course design and nice easy walk.
Warm and friendly welcome
Fantastic family friendly club. Took my son with me for his first full round and he loved every second. Great experience and amazing value for money at £14 for a full round for 2 players
Unfriendly to visitors I found!
The course was in ok condition, some bunkers needed alot of work, they had moss growing in them. The back nine were in better condition than the front nine. However what let the course/staff down was that I had booked to tee off at 07:03 and the gates were locked upon arrival the greenkeeper turned up at 7am and told me to just go out as I'd paid online. I was just finishing the 18th hole when a member aked if I had a ticket I said I didn't because noone was here when I arrived and was booked to play he told me that I should of gone in at 9am to speak to the pro. Which I find ridiculous as I was way out on the course at that point with a 3-ball behind me, so I should of come all across the course just to speak to someone that should of made sure they were there for the first tee that was booked then walk back out to the hole I was on and get stuck behind orhers! Makes no sense!
Some of bunkers contained more stones n gravel than actual sand. They even had a cheek to put a rake there as well.
The course was in great condition for the time of year.
Very enjoyable round not played for a while the new holes are bedding in nicely now
