The Manchester Golf Club (which is also known as Hopwood) boasts one of the best golf courses in the region but we will soon have some of the best practice facilities of any private club in the county.

Our ambitious Academy project is transforming the existing driving range to create a 350 yard, beautifully contoured practice facility with open air and covered bays. These will sit alongside a large short game area maintained to the same standard as the course.

Scheduled for completion in Spring 2023, The Manchester Golf Academy will be available to members and their guests, visitors having lessons or playing the course and members of the Academy. Our Academy membership programme will be designed to encourage wider participation in golf with options to suit everyone from juniors to newcomers to the game. 

The redevelopment is an ambitious project cementing our commitment to maintaining our reputation and providing members and visitors with outstanding facilities.

This video provides a sneak preview of what is in store for members with a CGI flyover of the new facility. You can read more about this fantastic project.

Short Game Practice Area

At the entrance to the club feature two individual chipping greens built to course standard specifications with bunkers and marked flags. These greens offer the opportunity to practise a variety of shots from a number of challenging and different lies.

The 18 hole practice putting green at Manchester Golf Club is maintained to the same standard as the greens on the course and gives an opportunity to practise long and short, uphill and downhill putts.

The Hill

Manchester Golf Club members also benefit from a further practice area which is integral to the course. This area provides the perfect opportunity to practise all shots up to a maximum of fairway woods using the players own practice balls.

There is no doubt that these facilities are among some of the best in the region and perhaps one reason why we attract so many Category 1 players as members.
