Great course

Lovely course. Some tricky holes. Can imagine it being a nightmare in the wind or rain but great conditions when we played and in great shape.

Great course to play.

Great course to play, if you stay on the fairways great but once you go in the second cut that's when it becomes challenging. Certainly will be going back now I know the layout.
Staff very friendly and welcoming, can't wait for the next round.

Been better.

Great day out at Burnley as always. Fantastic course with great views.

Having played there on a handful of occasions the greens at the present time are not the best. Very boobly which ruined the round a little. The greens are challenging at the best of time and with the ball not running true made it almost impossible.

Once the greens are better its definately one to put in the diary.

Very Hilly but brilliant course

My only negative feedback is this covid! Buggies aren't in operation snd its a very hilly course. Me snd my friends ran out of steam by the 15th hole. It was in brilliant condition though and I'd definitely play again. Very challenging but enjoyable

Windy when it’s not

Nice course, holding well to the wet conditions. Super greens. Due to elevated position, this course is windy when it’s calm. Very challenging in breezy conditions. Quite a few blind tee shots. Didn’t use the club house but I know it’s a nice bar etc under normal conditions.
Great views over Burnley.

Gem of a course

Played this course for the first time and will definitely be returning. The staff in the club shop were very accommodating, the course was interesting, challenging and in great condition all round. I would go as far as saying that it’s probably the best course that I’ve played this year. Absolute credit to everybody involved up there at Burnley, can’t wait to return.

A good challenge

1st visit to Burnley GC the course is dry & in very good condition impressive greens well maintained and plenty of subtle pins to challenge your putting, you need to be fit to cope with the slopes but every time you reach the top you get a great view of the surrounding area. There were a number of blind shots that made the round harder for 1st timers but would definitely recommend & I intend to play again soon.
Due to covid I booked online & didn’t visit the clubhouse.

Blind Alley!!!!

We revisited Burnley after playing with a society earlier in the year. Love the course. Great layout. The main reason for our return was that there was so many blind shots it was nice to know what was over the brows and dips. Even saying that we still got a few wrong but it just adds to the experience. It’s a good all year round course aswell. I myself played on New Year’s Eve one year and it was excellent. Well worth a visit!!!!
Descent practice area aswell!!!

Well worth the visit

Played this course over twenty years ago, and revisited it to find that it's as good as I had remembered it.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, would recommend this course for all abilities, tough but fair.
