Host to the Lancashire Amateur Championship 2011 and the Northern Counties Championship in 2013
In 2017 Manchester hosted the prestigious England Golf “Reid Trophy” an international field of 14 year old boys.
Festival Week is Manchester Golf Club’s opportunity to showcase the club and course at its glorious best. Guests travel from all over the region to play in this annual cluster of events – many will be returning in 2018 having taken part in Festival Week for a number of years.
The varied schedule has an event to suit every golfer and all events are played in the spirit of the Festival. Ladies, Gents, Seniors, Juniors and Club representative trophies are all fiercely competed for.
Participants are guaranteed a very warm welcome from the members of Manchester Golf Club. You are sure to enjoy the fantastic championship golf course which will test the skill of each and every competitor and also our choice of good hearty food and complement of drinks to follow. Manchester Golf Club rarely disappoints.
Buggies can be booked in advance through Golf Reception on 0161 655 3668 and our fantastic practice facilities are open to competitors throughout the week.
Prize winners will be delighted to hear that they can select prizes from our prize table on the evening or exchange them following the prize giving at our House of Golf professional shop which remains open late especially for your convenience.
