Funeral Wake

Thank you to all the staff at Manchester Golf Club for the exemplary service offered in the planning and delivery of the reception to celebrate my Father’s life. Special mention for Steve Flett who pulled everything together in a very professional and friendly manner.
The service offered by the catering staff on the day was first class. All the staff I spoke to demonstrated that they were prepared to go the extra mile to meet our needs.

The feedback from all friends and family who attended the function was very positive and complimentary.
I would not hesitate to recommend the venue to any one thinking of holding an event. I have spoken to the Funeral Director in glowing terms about the service offered by the club and suggested she bear it in mind when families ask for advice on venues.
I would be grateful if you could pass a copy of my e mail to Steve Flett and the Club Captain.
Kind regards
Tom Coburn

Trip Advisor Report

I’m a wedding photographer who was asked to shoot a wedding at this venue and I just wanted to give a few short words about the service at the club. I know the family and guests were over the moon with the service from the staff and the club in general.
I have shot a good few wedding and I also would compliment the venue and it’s staff on their service and attitude through out the day. They looked after everyone including myself and the place itself is a wonderful venue for weddings with lots of wonderful views for taking photos. From the bar staff to the DJ to the manager ( Steven) they could not be more helpful and happy to look after everyone.
I just wanted to give credit where credit is due I would recommend this club to anyone for all kinds of functions. I know the Bride and Groom had a fantastic day and all the staff here worked really hard to make sure it happened.

The wedding of Mr. & Mrs. Tomlinson

I’m writing to you on behalf of myself and my wife, to show our absolute gratitude for the way you assisted us to plan, organise and deliver our wedding reception on Saturday the 15th July. It was perfect, it surpassed and exceeded our high expectations in every single way possible.
Both the lamb & the sea bass were incredible and the feedback was unanimous, everyone was amazed by it, the starters and desserts were equally decadent, I’ve never known such a happy crowd.
Finally I would like to commend the staff at the golf club for the little touches on the night…. All the staff were friendly and constantly smiling.
I will happily recommend you and your club to anyone in future, not only as a party / reception venue, but as a food venue too.
Eternally Grateful
Mr & Mrs Tomlinson

The wedding of Mr & Mrs Astley

Attended a wedding reception here on Saturday 24th September and highly recommend. The room was stunning both for the meal and the night time, dance floor was beautiful. Meal was delicious and the waitress was both efficient and very friendly, couldn’t be more helpful, as were the bar staff.

All helping to make a wonderful day, thank you everyone.

If you are considering booking a celebration at Manchester Golf Club – go ahead and book with confidence they will give you a day / night to remember for all the right reasons.

Adam Lord – Wilkies Golf Society September – 2016

Hi Geraldine

I would like to thank everyone at Manchester Golf Club for the hospitality shown to us all yesterday. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and we were well looked after throughout the course of the day. Having organised a lot of corporate golf days I can honestly say that the service provided by MANGC was a class above anywhere else I have been.

Can I ask that you pass on my special thanks to Steve who was very attentive and accommodating.

Thank you all once again.

Terry Barham Boggarts Golf Society – August 2016

Morning Geraldine

I’d like to thank Manchester Golf Club for our day on Sunday.

From your prompt and courteous organisation right through to all the polite and helpful staff in the golf shop and bar/restaurant deserve many plaudits, such service is a rarity these days.

The course was in great nick and the quality of the food and beer was outstanding.

We have a loose policy of playing different courses every year but everybody left saying that we should come back.

So once again thank you , and I’ll be in touch. Regards Terry


Alex Coombes RSM Golf Day – June 2016

Hi Geraldine,

Just wanted to say thank you once again for a fabulous day. The feedback has started to come in and it’s all been really positive – I certainly hope a number of our guests plan further golf activity with you. I’ve processed the invoices, so if you haven’t received payment yet, it will be with you shortly.


As you know, we’ve got a few more events to run in our championship including the final in October, and as soon as that is out the way, I dare say I’ll be given permission to come and book for next year. I know I’ll be looking forward to try and beat the 102!!!!!

Please pass my thanks on to all, you all made it a fantastic day for us.

Keep in touch, Alex Coombes

Last evening I had the pleasure of attending, with my wife, the Annual CLL Umpires Dinner at the Club. Can I take this opportunity, through yourself, to thank Steve Flett and his team, for the quality of the food and the most excellent courteous service given by him and his staff, and as far as I am aware, all present were like minded. We are now both looking forward to our next meal, at New Year’s Eve, as guests of the incoming Lady Captain. Best regards, Sincerely, L Hayes Social Member

Thanks for everything on Friday, all the lads really enjoyed it spoke very highly of the service and the course. Will certainly be coming back!

Dave Sanders (Secretary Manager Reddish Vale Golf Club)

I played at MGC yesterday with the Perishers and thought the course was fantastic, the quality of the greens and the fairways was outstanding. I played Moortown and Alwoodley last week and I would rank you as being very much in that league.

Maxitours at Hopwood May 2015

Maxitours travelled to Manchester Golf Club for the ‘2UNDR’Open. The players all really enjoyed themselves. Thanks to Hopwood and their great staff for some terrific Lancastrian hospitality. Respected Pro Brian Connor and his lovely wife Geraldine, their family and staff run the Club superbly and are a real pleasure to deal with.

The Hopwood golf course is a superb layout and rated by many as the number 1 Manchester course.  I have always enjoyed my golf at Hopwood and I first played there in 1991 in the first of  my 9 unsuccessful visits to the European Tour qualifying school. A young Lee Westwood and Darren Clarke were also qualifying that year and they both had a few lucky bounces to narrowly pip me by 15 shots.  

‘That is my favourite course we play on Maxitours’ said knowledgeable Russell Humphries.

The Hopwood event is just off the M62 and it attracts more Yorkshire players than usual.  

Neil Hailwood Golf Society May 2015

Just a quick note to thank your for help arranging last weeks golf society event.  Everyone who attended had a great day, which was helped by the friendliness of all the team we made contact with including the bar manager, bar staff and the professional in the Club shop.

Graham Barr 70th Birthday May 2015

‘Dear Steve, A big ‘Thank You’ to everyone at Hopwood Cottage especially to you for the terrific party you made for Graham’s 70th Birthday. You attended to every detail for us and it was a delightful evening.

The buffet was superb and you made everyone feel so welcome, a marvellous memory, thanks again – with kind regards, Pat and Graham Barr.’
