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

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

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.

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.

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

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!
