Great 9 hole course

Having lived in the area for the last 3 years I was really overdue a round at Gatley.

The course was in superb condition. Whilst the course is shorter than most, it still presents plenty of challenges off the tee.

Really enjoyed my round and will definitely play again

A little gem..

We discovered this course last year,if you time it right you can play it for around s tenner.
Gatley is a 9 hole course ,(we played 27 holes last year),small,compact,and is well maintained.
There are some really excellent holes on the property which will test your game.
There is a downer tho ,at this moment in time there isn't a Pro Shop,they've had 'issues' in the past so it's advisable to print some scorecards out beforehand (there's a telephone no to ring but sometimes there's no-one there)
So take all your own food and drinks because you won't get them there.
A little gem that you won't regret playing

Wouldn’t go back

Not a terrible course, but when I went it was registered as 18 holes, when it’s nine. Didn’t felt like I got my money’s worth. A very basic course that’s good for a beginner golfer

Gatley GC May 2021

Wanted somewhere local,quiet so I could practise and take my time,, inexpensive but still a challenge.
From playing here b4 many times I knew there would be no one around and I think I saw one other golfer and two greenstaff.
Course was in fantastic condition though pretty wet from all the recent rain
Vastly improved from 3-4 years ago this is a really interesting test of golf if only a nine holer..Last 3 holes are the highlight.
Definitely come back but if u want a Pro Shop and Changing rooms etc this is not the course for u.
9/10

Game with friends

Glad to be out on the course again. 4 ball in front of us were very slow. The course was very boggy due to the constant rain we've had. All in all great to be out again

Wet weather
Walked

Played during winter greens and COVID times.....

Holes 8 and 9 where closed....so that was a bit dissapointing as (both) holes looked the most challenging for the 9 hole course.....

Overall though, we considered it value for money

Bad experience

I tried calling this club for 3 days after I booked. We had some bad weather and tried calling 5 times on the morning of the session but again no answer.

We turned up and the golf shop is closed and the facilities are closed and there is no organisation of who is teeing off at what time.

Clearly people playing who hadn't booked a tee slot.

We decided not to play and went to another course.

Then read the reviews online and this seems to be the case with Gatley. Terrible reviews and the same bad experience.

Wouldn’t bother

I had been looking forward to playing Gatley and booked a round for the Sunday just gone on the GolfNow App. Turned up to find that the course was closed despite the booking being made and payment taken 24 hours prior to this. Very disappointing as we received no email or call to say the course was closed. A number of other people had the same problem. It didn’t help that there was nobody at the course to explain the situation. All other local courses seemed to be open. Won’t be coming back I’m afraid.

Mostly Enjoyable

Played here 4 times recently. I'm new to golf and have been enjoying the deals on this local course. It's a tight, compact course which is fairly challenging but good fun. Unfortunately the "inspector" was really grumpy and rude to me and basically said that he hates golfnow and the people that use it as it messes up the rotation etc. I felt a bit disheartened as a new player at being treated like this.

Nice 9 hole course

Nice 9 hole course but a bit slow on the second nine when it got busy.
It was in very good condition when we played but the pro shop was closed as was everything else.
Overall a nice course to play.

Good value

Good 9 hole course however on 2nd set of 9 holes the greens had been heavily sanded and some greens was like putting on a beech which spoilt it a little but overall good

Poor

Booked tee time for 10.40 and paid £12 for 18 holes only to find on arrival at 10 that the pro shop and clubhouse were closed and everybody else on the course obviously hadn’t paid. Played the 1st hole only to find that I had to play back down the 1st fairway on the second hole. Very dangerous. Railway runs through the middle of the course and it’s on Manchester airports flight path. Greens were terrible. Just disappointing and rubbish.
