What the club says: The first nine holes, or new nine to the older members, was designed by the renowned golf course architect and 5 times Open Champion James Braid and lies north of the Clubhouse. It is situated on tree lined parkland surrounded by Dean Wood, presenting a gentle but pleasant introduction to the back nine. The second nine, which are the original nine holes presents a totally different challenge, demanding a high degree of accuracy and good shot making, with each hole consisting of sloping fairways and small undulating greens.
Out of bounds to the right on the first nine and left on the back nine, is a constant threat to the wayward golfer. Don't let this deter you, playing golf at Dean Wood is a challenge, but you will also be rewarded with some of the finest views of East Lancashire.
The back 9 holes of the course are awesome! Particualry 10,11,12 and 13.
1st 2 holes were pretty easy then after that out of bounds on most holes, tight fairways but pretty fair lots of bunkers but if you hit your drive in play it wasnt to bad on the front 9 but then from the 10th to 18th the course was superb hitting over valleys, water in play 2 190+ par 3's then the 18th was one of the hardest holes I have played out of bounds left & right tight fairway plus it was 50+ yard par 5.
Was well looked after in the pro shop very helpful & the food & clubhouse was superb. Would recommend a visit especially if the weather is nice & will be on our society calendar in the near future
