The 247 acres of Hopwood is home to an incredible array of wildlife that can be seen on our new gallery. We are fortunate that it flourishes thanks to the natural landscape, space afforded by the expanse of the golf course and the absence of any public rights of way.
The entire Wildlife Gallery has been photographed by Gordon Yates and provided with his compliments for members and visitors to enjoy. He hopes that everyone will enjoy the wildlife and will help us to protect the unique environment so that it continues to flourish. Long-time time member and wildlife enthusiast, Gordon has been studying and cataloging the wildlife at Manchester Golf Club for more than 40 years. He has been a member of the RSPB for over 50 years and is an Honorary Life member of three local wildlife groups in acknowledgement of his contribution to Wildlife Conservation. Gordon has won several still photography awards with BBC television, RSPB, Scottish Wildlife and the Scottish Ornithologist Club.
Enjoy the rich variety of species showcased and let us have any pictures you may capture while plating.
