Werneth golf club was very impressive. this was our second time of playing the course 1st time was very windy and proved more difficult this time the weather was perfect. The course layout is exceptional and the condition was superb very well kept. the staff and members very friendly. whilst I was on the practice putting green an elderly member came and give me some advice which I was grateful for the facilities are very good and range of meals and snacks very good. I was very impressed and I am considering applying for membership. would readily recommend to friends
Good in summer poor in winter
So I first played here a few months ago in the summer now the only problem then was the course layout tee boxes didn’t follow the green on some of the holes
On this occasion we booked a 9 am tee off, when we arrived no staff were present, didn’t have a card for the round. Problem 1, ressolved by using the golf shot app, secondly all the greens were winter green that weren’t advertised and were the size of a bin lid on the fairway, 3 holes were closed only informed when we got to the tee boxes for each hole and finally the drainage oh the drainage never walked through moor puddles on a golf course, somehow and I have to commend the staff their were puddles half way up hills
So great challenging course in summer will not be playing again in winter!
The Locals are restless
Great little course but it's located within a big housing estate in Oldham. We teed off around quarter to 2 in the afternoon.
Some of the local kids were camped out by the first green and ran off with my playing partner's ball - never to be seen again. (the flag stick was also missing from the 1st hole)
- later on we saw this happen to another guy who teed off the 1st and had his ball nicked by the same kids.
A couple of holes later we saw a few older local lads riding their mountain bikes across the fairways and onto some of the greens.
All of this aside (which was a real shame), the course is a good challenge with greens rolling well and strategically placed bunkers.
I would imagine teeing off a bit earlier might reduce the chance of the local "wildlife" being up and about causing bother.

A little tricky to find.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The course was in good condition in the main part, with only a little standing water.
The layout was quite complicated, and I ended up playing the 9th before the 4th and went the wrong way.
There are also not enough signs to direct to the next tee on a few holes, for example the 17th green is directly in line with the 18th fairway tee box.
Overall tho, the greens were in fine condition and it was a very pleasant course.
Really nice course. Well looked after. Value for money definitely be playing again
