Reddish Vale (Maybe 40 times this year so far)
Cavendish
Romiley
Worsley
Bramhall
Pleasington
Sandiway
Mere
Prestbury

Sean,

We need to see Manchester.

From what I understand it is almost entirely original Colt and was considered one of the top inland courses in the country 100 years ago.

My only visit was earlier this year in poor weather with most greens on temps. It was enough to confirm however, that this is a serious golf course of quality. Think of Cavendish on steroids - the moorland setting is similar but the scale is breathtaking.

I can only imagine that it is not better known or rated because it is wild, windswept, and not particularly 'pretty'. That was my impression in January, anyway. A sunny day in July or August might cause me to revise my view.

Let's do it!



PS Two other courses in this area that you should see are Sandiway and Pleasington. You would find an awful lot to like.

I will be honest, I wanted to play elsewhere, but I was overruled by my buddies and I ended up being pleasantly surprised. It was a FUN golf course. I grew up in CT (New Milford) so I try and get out there to golf with a buddy a few times per year. Here are a few pics....



These were my 2 favorite holes:

Not sure I should post this here or in the " how Golf lost the Millennials "

But I think Golf needs more Bunker Hills- a nice 9 hole course in Colorado.

I mean it encouranges walking- its an easy walk- but has carts-has some nice design- the fairways ran pretty quick for how green they were- the greens rolled perfect- it has some short holes and some longer holes so you can use a bunch of different clubs depending how good you are - seems like a course that a good golfer and/ or a beginner could play.

Pace of play for 18 holes - 2 hrs 20 mins walking.

Get this - I paid 18 bucks for the first nine - added additional 11 bucks for back nine, 2 waters and a snickers.
And the money goes to local veterens.
Oh - and friendly service- what a concept!
