Nice tricky course

Can’t fault the course , the greens were bobbly so putting was difficult , we had a scratch handicap player who couldn’t make a birdy. Tough course , quite hilly but decent. Pro none too friendly and clowns on 18th messing around drunk why we played the hole was none too impressive, same as the drunken fools eyeballing us as we came off but a good track we thought

A Lancashire Gem

Course tough but enjoyable. Slight issue with signs for next tees and went astray on the 11th despite being warned. Everyone was friendly, in fact the friendliest course I’ve played..

I will play again

A Lancashire Gem

Started off with a friendly pro who took the time to give us some guidance on certain holes as we hadn’t played here before. Even the members would give a bit of advice on some of the blind shots. Some fantastic holes. Very fortunate to catch Darwen on a warm day with Zero wind!
Had a fantastic day & around in 3hr 40min.
Thanks you DGC

Workout for the thighs

Nice course, greens in good condition and a few nice par 3s. This is by far the hilliest course I have ever played and I was suffering. I recommend a buggy or at least an electric trolly.

Excellent Course

We played a fourball, the pace was good, no hold ups. Greens in excellent condition. It was a dry day with a cold wind. I think it will be lovely when we return in the summer. A hilly but well laid out course, not for lovers of flat courses

Good condition considering

Most courses around the north west are very wet at the moment but Darwen seems to drain pretty well considering. Couple of things to probably check before you book though as not made apparent when i booked. Only a random selection of 9 holes were open and all on temp greens. Also no guarantee you can play those 9 twice due to tee slots.
I'll definitely try to play again here when fully opened as looks like a nice course with some great views of the surrounding area.

Decent course

Few hilly holes on the back nine. All in all a good course. Unfortunately they were working on greens preparing for winter. Will definitely play here next summer.

Best value for money course in the area.

I got this tee on a hot deal for £10. I'd played here before and thoroughly enjoyed it. Playing here again I looked forward to even more especially with the nice weather.

Course is well looked after and always has green staff out working.

Only down side was no pro shop or clubhouse open at 8:30am for me to get a card and also to access clubhouse afterwards as it wasn't open.

Beautiful but challenging

2nd time we’ve been here, and we were just as impressed as the first time. The wind was blowing which made the longer holes more tricky. Set in wonderful surroundings, with a great clubhouse and friendly staff and members, what’s not to love!
