Beware of the sting in the tail!

An excellent easy walking parkland course, with the best greens in the area, well presented all year round and the toughest finish in South Manchester.

The course puts a premium on driving accuracy with many tree lined fairways Whilst not excessively long the course is hard to score well on especially on the back nine.

There is gentle start with a par three of 155 yds but its all carry with a stream and bunkers protecting the front of the green.

When you get to the fifth par five, there is danger on every shot with out of bounds left off the tee, and a decision to be made on the second shot for the bigger hitters to carry the picturesque pond or lay up.

The eighth is a 180 yd par 3 with a severely sloping green, correct club choice is key here .

The 13th and 14th have the river Mersey bank on the right waiting to collect wayward drives

We now approach what Withington call "The Stretch" the most testing finish to any course in the area. A 575 yd par 5 16th followed by two 440 yd par fours with tight tree lined fairways. Its very easy to finish with three bogeys or worse.

The pro staff manged by Steve Marr are friendly and welcoming, and the the ground staff do a great job maintaining this course in good condition year round.

The members are renowned for the welcome and friendliness to visitors and this is continued by the bar and catering staff in the clubhouse. A warm welcome is always guaranteed here, even if a bogey free card isn't!

Withington golf clubs

Cracking course with a good layout
Something for everyone regardless of ability
For November the course is in good condition but beware with it being a parkland course there are plenty of leaves lying around.
The last 3 holes are as tough a finishing stretch that you will find on any golf course
Well worth a visit we were made welcome and amenities were great and at £15 for a Sunday afternoon great value for money

Enjoyable round

Didn't enjoy a number of the tees being replaced with mats, but apart from that the greens were in excellent condition and given the time of year the overall course was good.

Good layout, and very flat but challenging.

Played on a lovely sunny day. The course had dried out and was in good condition. Greens were a little bumpy but put this down too it being a Sunday and they hadn't been cut. Overall very enjoyable.

Great day at Withington

The club was recommended to us by a gentleman who lives in the area, and it proved to be a great start to our golfing trip in the north west. Entertaining layout with a good mix of short and tricky holes requiring precision, with long and wide ones for the long hitters. Tees, fairways and greens are in pristine conditions; greenkeepers discreetly at work hand-grooming bunkers which were also a joy to play.
Very helpful proshop and restaurant staff made us feel very welcome.
The course was extremely busy with members from local and a visiting club, but we never had to wait, infact we learned a thing or two about pace of play.
Higly recommended.

Classic Parkland Golf Course

This was a last minute decision after playing links seaside courses all week. Close to the Manchester airport was what brought it to our attention. This is a classic parkland style golf course with fairways well defined by trees, a few well placed bunkers, and limited water in play. What you see is what you get and that is not a bad thing. Course conditions were good and pace OK even though there was not heavy play that day what play there was slightly on the slow side for my liking.
