Stunning Golf Course & Great Value for Money

Really enjoyable fun golf course with 3 or 4 fantastic signature holes. Wind was up so a tough challenge. Incredibly welcoming and helpful clubhouse staff. Will certainly be back again

Very enjoyable.

Always enjoy playing at Stand gc, course in very good condition, fairways/tee blocks/greens etc, very good lay out, a bit hilly in places but didn't find it a problem.
Met 4 ex captain's who were a credit to their club, very friendly and informative guys.
Definitely recommend Stand gc.

Gem of a course!

Don’t let the yardage fool you. I played off the white tees and this course is challenging. Some holes are monsters if the wind direction is into. It is tight in the right places and beautiful rolling fairways means challenging second shots. Greens were immaculate with fair slopes.

This will be on my itinerary whenever I visit family in Oldham. Definitely playing here again. Got to try and match my chip in eagle on 12 and the 13th par three is such a good par three - I could easily stand in the tee with a bucket of balls!

This course would be perfect if there was slightly ‘nicer’ tee signage and better yardage markers from the fairway. But those are my ‘would like to see’ thoughts.

Friendly pro at the shop and everyone I played through were chatty and friendly.

Great round!

Hidden gem

1st time playing here and it’s a excellent course hidden away.
Wet conditions but greens superb. Imagine in nice weather they would be super fast. It’s a course that deserves to be enjoyed but the pace of play was incredibly slow to the point both my playing partner and I came away disappointed. May have just been bad luck on our part so will defo be going again as like I say it’s a great course and deserves to be played and enjoyed

Undulating course.

I have played this course a few times and it offers a good level of interest and variation.
There is very little water on the course, but there are plenty of other hazards to keep you interested.
The course is very undulating, especially the 4th through to 11th where shot selection off the tee often requires some thought rather than just pulling out the big stick every time.
The condition of the course was immaculate, as it is generally known to take water well.
I have played a few times in the winter, and only on one occasion was the 4th and 5th holes shortened to some areas of waterlogged fairways.

A wet and windy round.

A very wet and windy round but the course was in great condition. The greens were in great shape and the course was very tidy. Would recommend and will be returning on hopefully a dryer day!

delays

Been on this course many times and it was always ok till the last round,it took over 5 hours to play, with waiting on tee at every single hole ,phoned the pro at the pro shop who suggested if you want a quick round start playing in the week,which would be fine but having to work for a living cant be done .cant fault the course but unless you enjoy very very slow golf go elsewere,,they need to space out the tee off times better .

Enjoyable round

Played Stand about 20 years ago and had forgotten how good it was. The course was in really nice condition. It’s a good track. It is quite hilly in places but the elevation changes make many of the holes. Highly recommend playing a round here

Conditions Nearly Perfect!

Honestly can't knock anything about the course, greens were close to the best I've ever played on. Only issue I had was a couple of rude members,4 ball in front wouldn't let me play through and I was alone. Added about 90 minutes on my round for the sake of 2-3 minutes for them.

Anyways, Lovely scenic course with amazing views and challenging holes, I'm a 22 Handicapper and found it tough and very hilly!

Breathtaking Views

This is a championship worthy course. The design of the course is outstanding. The structure is such that it is possible to play a round without seeing another golfer. There are breathtaking views encountered during the round. The elevated tee holes are a joy to play. The course is a mixture of heath and parkland with undulating and sometimes difficult hilly sections. It was a memorable but tiring day for two seventy plus seniors. I just wished I'd played it in my younger and fitter days.
