Open Events 2018
Hopwood is a popular venue on the North West Open Event circuit. The Hulbert Trophy is an annual qualifier for the Northern Order of Merit and the Club plays host to hundreds of visitors in its renowned Festival Week, when a series of Open competitions are played back to back over six days in late July / early August.
Ladies, Seniors, Juniors and Mixed are all accommodated in their own Opens during the course of the golfing season. The course consistently features in the ‘Best of …’ golf guides, has played host to various prestigious events, including the Lancashire Amateur Championship in 2011, PGA European Tour Qualifiers and The Player’s Tour, and is widely considered to be one of the finest inland courses in the North West of England. In 2013 the Manchester Golf Club played host to the Northern Counties Championship and in 2014 the England Golf Captains. In 2017 Manchester hosted the prestigious England Golf “Reid Trophy” and international field of 14 year old boys.
The members extend a warm invitation to golfers wishing to take part in Open Events at the Club in 2018 join us for a great day’s golf on our fantastic course.

Kevin Sykes played in our Seniors Open during Festival Week, this is what he had to say ‘I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for a most enjoyable day today at your Seniors Team Event.
All the staff at your club were most welcoming and friendly. The course was a credit to your green keeping team, it was very well presented and the greens were in an excellent condition. On completing our round, we sat down to a very nice meal in your clubhouse.
Please thank all concerned in making it a really enjoyable day and we look forward to making a return visit.
Best wishes for the rest of the golfing year. Kind regards Kevin Sykes (Wrexham GC)’
