Nice course, shame some of the temporary tees are halfway down the fairways. Got stuck behind a fourball who I’m guessing were members for 12 holes!!! I know they dont have to let me through but Christ they were so slow and totally ruined the experience for me, so much so that it was so dark by the time I got to the 16th hole I couldn’t finish the round

Nice course in all conditions

We’d had a bit of rain the days prior and was naturally expecting a mud bath.
Wasn’t the case, had to use mats off fairway which are available at the pro-shop and all greens bar one was fully open.
Greens hallotined as expected for this time of year but on the whole ok.
Clubhouse also great and very welcoming with some really tasty food.
Will be returning over the winter 🥶

Enjoyable course with great views and in great condition

Really enjoyed playing Bolton GC for the first time on Sunday afternoon. Impressed with the condition of the course and softness of the greens. Great views of the surrounding area and added bonus. Just a small suggestion on having a sign post to the 5th tee (through the trees to the right of the 4th green).

Bolton Golf club

Beautiful course lovely fairways and greens. The only negative is the lack of signage for Tees on some of the holes. Got lost a couple of times and played the wrong hole until guided by a member. That said , a great course.

Fantastic Course

Amazing course, there are some really nice holes. Greens are in manicured condition.
The practice area is fantastic, putting, chipping and a range.
Staff in the pro shop very friendly too! I will definitely be back....

Top quality

Brilliant range of holes- uphill downhill dog legs set in stunning scenery.
Opportunities to open your shoulders but just as many where you have to think your way around especially 7-10.
Course in superb condition. Well worth a visit!

Disappointing

Very poor greens very bobbly and patchy..
tee off areas uneven and grass too long.
Won't be coming back any time soon in a hurry.
Was even warned my a member the greens are awful unfortunately after I'd already booked and paid up front.

Sunshine start

Winter tee boxes on some holes.
Tee housings in poor condition, struggled to get a tee to stand up in some bug overall a great day.

Standard

Considering this course charges £400 plus for a membership the standards need to imporove. All the greens where temporarily out of action with no notice prior to booking. So trying to improve my putting on a fairway with divots and holes the size of a bucket was next to impossible to see if my game is improving. I recommend that there is other course within the same distance much better.

Good but...........

Good points-course in great condition with super quick greens and short fairways

Bad points-entire course on a very steep gradient which was very tiring and frustrating to play with balls constantly running off down the hill
V poor signage if you've not been before, with winter and regular tees not clear at all so even more walking up amd down hill required!
Cant help thinking how easy it would be to print a signup and stick itn the ground to help. Matters
Overall good challenging course, but not for m es as too steep
