What the club says: The undulating 18-hole parkland course, opened in 1973, measures 5912 yards, par 71 & provides a challenge to golfers of all abilities. It is one of the best kept municipal parkland courses in the North West and is open daily throughout the year from light until dusk.

Each hole has its own unique features. Generally wide fairways do not unduly punish the high handicappers, but even scratch players will do very well to finish under par. Two par fives, a sprinkling of par threes and some short (but challenging) and not so short (and still challenging!) par fours make sure there is something for everyone.

A bit boggy after a lot of rain
A great course with lots of challenging holes. The greens are always in great condition, even after heavy rain, as in this case.

Great course
Probably the best municipal course in the northwest of England
It has got a lot of character with interesting holes, it's a mature course.
There is a club house run by Sherdley park golf club which serves food & drink which is very good and value for money.
The thing that lets it down is the people that are running it... mainly the manager of the course ( he is very arrogant and rulesy)... the course being neglected with fairways not being mowed and bunkers neglected.
Society golfers are having problems booking tees which is stupid as it's money down the drain.
There are minimum amount of buggies available but a bit expensive compared to other golf courses in the area.
It's a shame as his type of management is losing the council ?????????? and customers
The council are actually taking bids from candidates to run the course... the sooner someone takes over the better as it could be a gem of a place with the right management

Simon Y rated 5 out of 5 - Aug 7 2017

A tale of two halves
Sherdley Park is a great municipal with two very different nines. The course is actually laid out as a ten hole stretch, then 11 and 12 are a bit of a walk back past the first tee with the last six holes over the road past the clubhouse.

The front 9 is very tricky as the par 37 suggests. The back 9 is very short but still full of interesting holes. It does get frequented by people that only play once a year. The four ball in front of us all sliced 50 yards into the trees but never once looked back to consider letting us play through even with a large gap in front. We ended up starting on 11 instead. They were in the rough on the tenth when we saw them again three hours later.

All in all a cracking course but allow 5-6 hours on a sunny Saturday.

Good condition
Greens were in brilliant condition, fairways were nice too.
Some of the cut grass in the rough made it difficult

Nice course but had bother with online booking as it was too misty to play and they claimed it was still open. Thankfully they allowed us to play a few hours later.

Played here quite a few times over the late summer months. It's a very well maintained course for a muni and the greens and fairways are consistently good. The bunkers have improved as the year has gone on. The course doesn't have much in the way of facilities but there is a driving range a short drive away (less than a mile) if you need to warm up. There's also one hitting net and a pretty ropey putting green. A basic club shop and a clubhouse of sorts completes the set up

The course itself is a decent challenge, especially the front 9, with the 6th being a particularly troublesome hole. The back 9 is classic risk and reward with several driveable par 4s

There's not much in the way of signage but it's a straightforward layout for the most part. The 4th hole tee box is back on yourself through a gap in the trees after you've putted out on the 3rd. To find the 11th & 12th holes it's back past the first tee and then up the hill in front of you. The remaining 6 holes are past the club shop and over the road

It can get busy at times and does attract all levels of golfer so be prepared to encounter hackers

There always seems to be buggies available but I don't often see people using them when I play, probably because they are a relatively recent addition (last couple of years maybe?)

Overall it's good value for money as the course is very good with the facilities in need of a little improvement. Some great promo deals available too at certain times

A good course with a testing front nine and a chance to score well on the way in. The greens are in good nick but the bunkers look like someone has stolen all the sand and left a few rocks in each.
