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.

Very disappointing. Greens slow and bobbly compared to other courses in area. 3 of arguably the best par 4s turned into a pitch and putt par 3 of a winter mat. No mention of this on website and the pro told me it makes the course play better and that as I had booked on teeofftimes I had got a bargain. Yeah right pal won't be returning will stick to Chorley or north Manchester in future, both cheaper and much better. As is Bolton old links, bury and Hart common. Don't know why the pga is based here it's an ok course when it's fully open but nothing special and defo not the adverisesd 40 quid

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.

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.

Not great

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

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.

Nice course

Played a few times now - you need to understand the course to get the real benefits as many holes are on a slope, so learning where you need to place your ball reaps rewards. Nice mix of differing holes and a challenging ravine on 17 & 18 to carry, often into the wind on one of them.

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.

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.

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!

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.
