Excellent course.
Really enjoyed our day at Vale Royal Abbey golf club.
The course it`s self is in excellent condition especially the greens which are fast and true.
The overall facilities are spot on.
All the staff from the lads in the Pro`s shop to the girls running the bar/food were friendly and helpful.
Would highly recommend a visit to Vale R A.

Utterly Brilliant
What a fantastic place to play golf! Fairways wide open, rough not long enough to hide your ball and slow down a round. Bunkers EVERYWHERE and big bunkers!!!!
The greens had been hollow tined the week I played and had healed up nicely and there was only a bit of SAND, take note our greenkeepers, SAND left on them. Perfect roll and FAST! Be careful when putting, read the green first. A few walks between holes. Toilets half way round but you need the code, so get from the Pro before setting out. Watch out for the 8th? with the lake on the left hand side. Play to the ridge on the right otherwise you may catch the steep slope off the left of the green and....lost ball. Top notch course. Give yourself a treat and go and play it. I paid £20 for the round due to it being "maintenance week". BARGIN !

Too many blind drives, heavy rough even in between the wooded area's. But bizarrely and the worst part, were large multiple bunkers smack bang in the middle of many fairways. For the price, there are many much better courses in the area, for a third of the cost. One to miss in my view.

Lovely course, some good challenges without punishing you too hard if you're a little off line. Plenty of bunkers & a nice smattering of water to keep you thinking.
The greens were excellent, flat, true & fast.
