Varied challenge

Played for the first time - course in great condition, even though there is only 1 par 5 and 3 par 3s the course still gives a varied mix of holes with the additional challenge of undulating fairways and elevation changes. Great views too.

Very enjoyable with some challenging holes for high handicap players. First time I've played when summer tees used and much harder course..

Lovely course

Really enjoyed my first round at Bolton, super golf course, not long but a good test, lot?s of variety to the holes makes it interesting, short dog legs don?t need a driver , just good placement with a rescue club. Nice par 3?s and strong par 4?s, the greens were fantastic, the best I?ve putted on this year!

Bit wet but still a good day

Sadly the day I played (mid August) this course areas were still struggling with the summer deluge!
Most greens were in reasonable condition and had stood up to the test. Only one was flooded. The bunkers were suffering too.
Having said that I enjoyed playing here. There were some challenges with the ?dog legs? especially on a first visit.
I will go back and play this course and look forward to it.

Nice views and the course is much improved. Played my best 9 holes in a long time. Good things for the future. Very testing for an amateur but good if you can hit well of the tee.

Our second visit.

Visited with our society.
Warmly welcomed. Nice snack and coffee as part of the price.
Course was in good condition, apart from a few greens which had been treated . But it didn?t stop us having a good time.
The course has an elevation change , playing across a slope so controlling your shots is essential. It is a fair challenge with chances to score.

Lovely course, but oh the greens!!!

A lovely course well laid out , albeit very sloping , friendly helpful Pro shop. But the greens, oh dear, on every green lots of round bare indents of about 5cm across. Several times a short putt just turned right angles, we ended up agreeing anything 30cm from the pin was considered as putted in one. Will gladly return when we read the greens are recovered

Best Round

Played April 2019 (under a courtesy round) the greens were under repair and as such the course was not at its best. (I noted that the club charges less than £20 for a round due to this). However I could see past this and I enjoyed the course for its layout, challenging holes and the wind on top the hills (I played on a very windy day). I liked the variation of holes, hills and wind factor from hole to hole. The fairways were good and the tee boxes were all good, I will be back to play the course when the greens are better!

Greens shambolic

For a course that's apparently pitting it's wits with old links for Bolton's stand out golf course is for a hell of a long way to go. The general course conditions were average at best and the greens.... The worst I've played, unimaginably poor for how prestigious this course is meant to be.

Beautiful course

Bolton GC is in stunning surroundings and is very well laid out, with some challenging holes and a beautiful signature hole what more could you want, the practice area is second to none, club house looks wonderful and overlooking the 18th, pro shop is good and staff friendly.
Booked on tee off times paid ?18 but don?t think it?s worth the full ?40 a round.
