What the club says: Bolton Golf Club has been at its present location Lostock Park on the north western side of Bolton since 1912. The golf course commands panoramic views over the South Lancashire and Cheshire plains and enjoys an enviable reputation for its well manicured layout with fast and consistently smooth putting surfaces.
Most Helpful Review
I was slightly underwelmed by this course. Decent course with nice true greens. But nothing spectacular. Good practice areas including 40yard pitching area and well laid out driving range.
Very expensive for what you get. Much better value and course at Mottrham hall. I felt i was paying for its exclusivity rather than it being a top championship course.
Extremely helpfull pro and great clubhouse.

The course is great one of my favourite ones in the area but the greens today were awful which is a real shame. Will still play it again cause normally the greens are exceptional
(Round played: Apr 2018 - Score: 76 Handicap: +0.2)
Tough course, fast greens in the summer.
Great practice facilities.
Course slightly shortened in the winter.

Many thanks for the welcoming feeling from this club. 3 of us played the course today and all enjoyed the day. The course was in great condition even though we have had so much rain recently.
(Round played: Oct 2017 - Score: 96 Handicap: 15.3)
An excellent course, plenty of undulations & a testing course. Some great holes where you have to think before you hit, such as the quirky 7th.
Course was in great condition despite the very heavy rain we'd had, with great views across the surrounding area.
The pro in the shop was excellent, really friendly & helpful
(Round played: Oct 2017 - Score: 93 Handicap: 11.2)
I'd struggle to fault the course, well kept tee boxes, manicured fairways in very good order considering the golfing traffic & stunning greens in impeccable order, quite quick but very true - only negative was being stuck behind a very slow 4-ball & despite me showing the the courtesy expected they didnt show me any & would let me play through, what should have taken 3.5hrs took nearly 5hrs as a result & nearly spoilt the experience, hopefully this isnt a reflection on the vast majorityof the membership.
Course undulates quite significantly & those who are less able may struggle without a buggy but a very good test of your golfing skills; not the longest course but in lack of length it makes up for in technical & environmental challenges.

Some winter tees questionable, 200 yards down fairway on a couple of holes.
Staff and members all friendly and helpful.
Would play again.
(Round played: Nov 2016 - Score: 95 Handicap: 18.1)
The course itself is well designed with testing bunker traps guarding most greens (which themselves are the best putting surfaces in the area without a shadow of a doubt). There are stunning views to be had from most holes and whilst fairly hilly this did not affect the enjoyment, still walkable for the able bodied.
If anything the only gripe would be the variation of holes - 14 par 4s and only one par 5 got a bit repetitive although each hole was a unique challenge.
Would highly recommend especially if you can get a good deal online as we did.
