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 competitors. Manchester Golf Club was named as one of the top 3 venues to hold an England Golf event in 2017.
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 2019 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 Professional, Brian Connor, who has one of the best selections of golf equipment in the region.

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)’
