A guide to golf in and around Heaton Moor

Heaton Moor Golf Club
0161-432-2134

Heaton Moor is a 6000 yard par 70 parkland course open to societies and visitors. The course can be deceptive the first time you play, the fairways are narrow and tree lined, although its not a long course you will need to be accurate off the tee in order to produce a good score The front nine is short with opportunities to set up a good score that you'll then need to protect on the longer back nine. Green Fees are 26 during the week and 34 at the weekend, which although expensive is comparative to other courses in the area.
The course will suit the average golfer, who wants an enjoyable game with quite an easy walk, although there are challenges for the lower handicapper.

Reddish Vale Golf Club
0161-480-2359

Reddish Vale is a 6086 yard par 69 open to visitors with restrictions at weekends. For the average golfer one of the main challenges is the walk, the course isn't particularly long but it is very hilly, the steepest being the 18th which can be a challenge in itself after a long round. This is a course to think your way round, positioning off the tee can easily save you a handful of shots over your round. The course is a Mackenzie design, the same architect who designed Augusta National, which is an indication to the quality of the layout of the course. For the average golfer there are a couple of daunting tee shots over the back nine, however this course is well worth a visit, although slightly more expensive than other courses in the area during the summer, the winter green fee is just 15 during the week.

Houldsworth Golf Club
0161-442-1714

Houldsworth Golf Club is a 6209 yard par 70 open to visitors. The course makes good use of the space available, and can be deceptively tricky for the average golfer. The opportunities are there to score well, however the water can be punishing for the over ambitious. In order to play this course well you need to make par on the long par 3's and take advantage of the shorter par 4's. The clubhouse is modern and impressive, arguably the clubs best feature. This is definitely a course to play during the better weather, as some of the winter rules can affect your value for money. The green fees are 30 during the week and 36 at the weekend, although this is slightly expensive, good discounts are available for societies which are welcomed at the club.

Didsbury Golf Club
0161-998-2811

Didsbury Golf Club is a 6210 yard par 70 open to visitors. The course is a unique design with the opening and closing holes being par 3's, although this can be a card-wrecker for the less accurate golfer, due to the narrow first hole. A good warm-up before your round is recommended. Situated on the river Mersey the course was redesigned in 1973 by Peter Alliss and his partner Dave Thomas, although they faced some major challenges caused by the Manchester ring road, splitting the land. Overall the course offers quite good value for visitors and societies, the greenfees are 28 during the week and 32 at the weekend.
