Rishton. Nice little course

Good overall condition for time of year and the amount of rain it had put down the day before. Needs a little tweaking with the layout of the course or at the least a few more direction signs as it can get a little confusing.
The greens and fairways were very good, but was a little boggy on the lower areas.

Great course, friendly people!

This is a really nice 11 hole course, cleverly made into an 18 hole with different tee positions on the back nine on some holes.
Course was in great condition and we received a warm welcome from the locals as well as the friendly ground staff.
Would highly recommend this course for all standards and it’s great value for money.
I’ll be back next week!

No staff on Sundays

Having booked an early morning tee time (6.20am) through golf now. Very disappointed to find no staff on arrival. Poor signs to the first tee which is impossible to find if you've never visited before. £45 three ball and we had to mark cards on phones as no paper card from the bar/shop. Very disappointed in course layout shared greens etc on some holes and still no signs of staff on departure some 4 hours later at half 10. If you've got balls I'd certainly just turn up and play... free round of golf at rishton early mornings....

Nice course, lovely day

Nice course, members were friendly. There was noone at reception to let us know where to go, but a member let us know it was accross the bridge, you'll see the entrance to the bridge looking accross the practice hole next to the cat park. This.could of course be due to more restrictions due to covid, avoiding unnecessary contact. Could of done with having a course map.on the back of the score cards found in the lobby as it was a little confusing at first as we didn't realise that some holes play off a different tee but to the same greens. Just ask members or groundskeepers though and they were always happy to help..

Like A Ghost Town

Turned up after booking my round to find no staff members on site. No signposting to tell you where to sign in, no access to a score card. Had to work out where to go to the tees, and the 1st tee is across a motor way! Had to rely on a YouTube video for direction.

Course was in okay condition for the price but the fact it is only 11 holes means on the second time round we had 3 groups queueing for the 1st/10th

Annoyed

Turned up happy to be playing. Was met by a very nice bloke who told us about the course and signed us in. No pro shop??. Was then informed we would be playing temp greens which was just a flag stuck in an oversized hole not mowed 6 of the 9 greens could have been played on the other 3 were wet which is fair enough it's just down to laziness. Walked off after 9. Went to darwen 10 mins away paid £10 for a round full greens amazing. Courses are worlds apart. My advice would be to go darwen, pro shop good food friendly staff

Great vfm

Bumped into the president before playing and he made us feel really welcoming. The conditions were wet and windy and we only played with wonder greens but had the course to ourselves. Great value for money with some nice challenging holes.

Well presented.

Good test of golf. Some uphill approaches require more club than you think. Will play again.

Neat and tidy 9 holes

2 of us played the course for the 1st time last Sunday, to be fair the course is well kept, reasonably challenging and we got great value for money.

I would definitely recommend it to anyone sure its only 9 holes but you could play the 18 and their are some different tee's to do that.

Overall I'd personally give it a thumbs up and will 100% play the course in the future.

The course was in great condition

First time I played here and didn’t realise it was a 9 hole course. But I really enjoyed it! It’s very hilly and not the longest when playing off winter tees but once it’s at full playing conditions it’s a test for anyone

Give it ago

Great little course would recommend to go give it ago, played Sunday morning 10-30 tee time think there was only about 6 people on the course. Although it’s a 9 hole course played the different tee positions to make it a good little 18 holes on a Sunday and for a £10 I think you will be pleasantly surprised

Beautiful Views

The course is high up to its surrounding location, which creates excellent views, fro some of the fairways, when the wind blows the course it much more difficult, the layout has nice holes, would recommend to any level, it is not a very difficult course, but it is also not easy when playing into the wind
