A little gem!
Played Whalley Golf Club on a Friday afternoon in early March (winter golf). Considering this February has been the wettest on record (A lot of courses still closed) the course has held up remarkably. Normal greens in play except the 2nd/11th as it’s hidden away and needs protection during the winter with I understand. Also played off matts on the fairway or could move ball into the rough to help preserve the fairways. Again understandable as the fairways during the season are outstanding. Greens are Always in great condition and challenging. The views of Whalley Nab and the Ribble Valley are wonderful.
Small practice ground, a practice putting green and two practice swing bays. The clubhouse is great with fantastic homemade food courtesy of Julia and attentive staff with very friendly members made my time there feel like my home club!
Can’t wait for spring to come so I can experience the course in full bloom. A must for any standard of golfer .
Pleasant 9-hole course of medium difficulty. Longish 1st two par 4's and then less difficult. Course in good condition with groundsmen on course while we were playing. Booking online with GolfNow will give you extremely good prices at certain times so worth looking.
Nice clubhouse apparently with balcony views. Pro shop there.
Played this course for the first time Friday. Picked a midday tee time on a nice sunny day. Couldn't fault the chap in the shop who took us to the first and explained the layout. However despite reading on the website all greens were in play, the second hole was in fact playing a temporary green which was disappointing. The overall condition of the course was a real let down, despite the good weather, the course was soaked, fairways seemed poor and 'rough' riddled with twigs and leaves. Through 18 holes only saw one chap who I assume was a greenkeeper. Overall layout of the course very boring, seems like a large field with 9 holes squeezed on, best hole in my opinion being the 8th. Would not play here again, even in mid summer and would not recommend.
This is the best 9 hole course I've played. Beautiful views. Some surprising holes which can catch you out. Greens were fast. The only negative thing is that I thought we'd booked 18 holes but in fact it was only 9. There was a ladies competition so we were only allowed to play 9. This was clear on the TeeOffTimes website.
