The Manchester Golf Course is a delight for every category of golfer

Set in over 240 acres (over one square kilometre) the Manchester Golf Course is predominantly moorland in character but with heathland and parkland features – when you play this course you will find yourself surrounded by scenic, rural views. Setting out from the elevated first tee, players journey across 18 holes, each of which seems set in its own space. 4 par fives, 10 par fours and 4 par three holes make-up a beautifully balanced course that challenges the very best. Blue, while, yellow, red and gold tees provide different the opportunity for everyone to enjoy our magnificent layout.

A golf course designed by a great of the game

The course was designed by Harry Shapland Colt, one of the foremost golf course architects of his time who participated in the design or redesign of over 300 golf courses (115 on his own) in all six inhabited continents, including those at Wentworth Club, Sunningdale, Muirfield, Royal Portrush, and Royal Liverpool. This ensures this Manchester golf course has a truly outstanding pedigree – our Photographic Galleries provide a snapshot of our 247 acres of golfing glory throughout the seasons.

If such an obstruction on or within two club-lengths of the putting green of the hole being played intervenes on the line of play between the ball and the hole, the player may obtain relief, without penalty, as follows: If the ball lies off the putting green but not in a hazard and is within two club-lengths of the intervening obstruction, it may be lifted, cleaned and dropped at the nearest point to where the ball lay which a) is not nearer the hole, b) avoids such intervention and c) is not in a hazard or on a putting green.
  4. The brook at all points, the open drains at the 6th, 9th, 10th, 12th and 15th and the hollows at the 10th and 12th are water hazards.
  5. Trees supported by stakes – if such a tree interferes with a player’s stance or the area of his intended swing, the ball must be dropped in accordance with the procedure prescribed in Rule 16.1 (immovable obstruction). The ball may be cleaned when so lifted.
