Excellent course to think your way around

Got a really friendly welcome from the guy in the shop. Which is always a great way to start a visit to a course for the first time. He warned us that the greens were quick, to which I replied overconfidently that we like it that way. What he didn't say was how undulating they were and the evil pin positions on some holes. Putting is the strength of my very below average golf game and I three putted three times and four putted once!

The course is made using the landscape that is there, the front 9 being quite hilly and there are a number of elevation changes and slopes to consider. But its not overly long. Think I played my driver for the first time on the 8th. You have to think your way around. The back nine is flatter with a few wide open fairways included back to back par 5's, the first reachable in two, the second probably not (unless you can carry the stream at 280). Some interesting short par three's which look simple from the tee but are well protected and require accuracy.

Really enjoyed the round and would recommend it and will return again. Harder than it looks on paper but in great condition, well planned and signed, (only the 17th tee was a guess, but if you pay attention earlier in the round you'll know exactly where to go). Enjoy the golf and the views over Bolton.

Augusta like greens

An amazing course - not long but great strategy required.
On the practice putting green you may be fooled into thinking your in for an easy ride - but after the first few easy holes, things begin to change!
Hilly first 9 with tremendous views, but by the time you've putted out on the 4th you'll be beginning to realise you are in for a challenging time.
Can't comment on facilities due to covid, but the pro and the members were superb. Heading back soon.

Soggy

Pretty good variety of holes to play, but the drainage on the course needs addressing (it looks like they’re working on this).
Friendly welcome - would like to play the course again in the dry - it’s pretty slippy and boggy in the wet.

Great, friendly and well maintained course

Course conditions were excellent, greens are well paced and maintained and the fairways very well looked after and are quite wide with the rough not too punishing allowing A lot of forgiveness.

The Front 9 is hilly with some great valley style holes and fab views out across the area, the back 9 is more level and has some water hazards.

Staff friendly and helpful and so was the local members we spoke with on course.

Would definitely recommend for all levels of golfers.

Good game good game

First time playing here and I enjoyed it very much. The course is while not too difficult can be quite demanding on the first 9 holes with gradual slopes and trenches in certain areas. The back 9 is flat and the fairways wide. The thing to look out for is crisscrossing of holes. All in all though, great value for money. Will definitely play this course again.

Pleasant round at Harwood

Played the course with my eldest son and have to say it was very pleasant, Holes 2 to 8 physically challenging for me but i’m 65, it’s a course of two different 9s Front nine quite undulating back nine flat but a few ditches to contend with, overall good test of positional play, will definitely play it again
