Very hilly.

First time playing this course and honestly it wasn’t a bad one, there are massive hills and a fair few fairways that are on a near enough 45 degree angle as a result of the hills. Greens weren’t amazing quite bumpy and hard to read and a fair distance to walk between some holes. Not sure if it was to do with the recent heat but quite a few of the tee boxes were Just devoid of grass. Was good for a first time but wouldn’t play it again I don’t think and at £22 a head there are cheaper and better options out there.

Great Course

Just wanted to say what a cracking course this is! Had a 10.20 Tee, never played here before and all the staff were amazing! The Members were friendly and helped point me in the right direction a few times!

Some great long drives available followed up with some technical finishes. Definitely worth taking a look at the holes before you play but the back 9 was cracking!

Everything ran quick today, no hold ups and the ball just didn’t want to stop! Great for getting that little bit closer - helped my game out today!

Thanks to Ste one of the Green Keepers’ for some well received pointers!

Will definitely be back soon

Uprated since i last played here 15 years ago.

As a past member of this course i have just returned to have my first game of golf here since 2004. The course has now been upgraded with 3 new holes i had not seen before ( done i believe over 10 years ago) and a great addition they are. The course is now par 71 and a good test of golf , not a long course but get your drives away well and there are birdies to be had. The course and greens were excellent and with the glorious weather it was a very enjoyable round around my old stomping ground and shooting only 4 over i came off happy.

Great course

Great course. Really enjoyed it.
Some sneaky holes where if you dont know where to hit it, can easily lose a ball though.

Will gladly play again.

Cracking course

Given its location on the side of the hills just outside Bury, it isn't actually as hilly as you might think.

Great mix of wide open holes and more technical ones. Given the very hot weather recently the course is in great condition with only a couple of weathered greens!!

Staff are fantastic and really helpful with frisr time players.

Excellent golf course north of Bury

Walmersley golf course just north of Bury was a testing course for both my son and myself. Well designed course with three difficult par 3s, two long par 5s and the rest par 4s
Very friendly and welcoming club with great views of the moors, Manchester and the surrounding countryside and for £14 each we will be back

Disgraceful state

this used to be a very good course with the best greens bar none.

it now has the accolade of having the worse greens I have played on for 20 years & will not be playing there again. Also the road to get to the course is in a dreadful state

'Pleasant surprise'.

First time played the course and was expecting a so so hilly trek; couldn't have been more mistaken. Hilly true but not mountainous with some very enticing holes not to mention spectacular views to boot. Pro was very welcoming on arrival kicking the round off on the right foot. Course in good nick considering the recent poor wet weather - definately one to play and great value.

a gem

approaching the course down a small uneven track , we wondered where we were going but once we arrived we were met by friendly staff and members , this is a great course , lots of challenging and varied holes , the course is in excellent condition , we did get lost a couple of times though , and I know there are signs , perhaps a few more would be welcome , thanks to all the people we met for a great round of golf

Great course and very picturesque.

This was the first time I've played here and the course was in great condition and on a lovely hot summer day the views from the course over Rossendale, Rochdale and Manchester were stunning!

The greens were well paced and the fairways groomed perfectly.

Play was a little slow behind a few four-balls, but I was on my lonesome.

I would highly recommend you take a visit and I'm definitely going back myself.

Great Views

The course was in very good condition - well cut fairways and quality greens. Beautiful views / scenery from around the course which is quite hilly in parts and testing. One particular fairway slopes quite steeply from left to right so you need to watch your ball until it stops rolling ! Some blind T shots as well so want to play it again now I know the layout and see if I can get a better score ! Recommended but check the forecast - I can imagine it can get quite windy / wild in adverse weather !
