What the club says: Originally a 9-hole course and later extended to 18-holes in 2005 using USGA greens specifications, our course is playable from a selection of tees at yardages of 5,306 (Red), 5,996 (Yellow), 6,207 (White), and 6,427 (Black). Our course is challenging and fair and kept in great condition by our Head Greenkeeper, Chris Ainsworth and his staff. The course is well balanced with four par 5's, four par 3's and twelve par 4's. We have a brook that meanders through the course and further water hazards that come into play. In 2019 we were proud to appoint a new PGA Professional in Jack Horrocks. Jack is a young local professional who provides a friendly engaging service to members and visitors alike. He installed a golf simulator in the shop (2020) which has been a great success and he should be the first point of contact for all golf-related enquiries including visitor bookings, lessons, golf societies, golf days, simulator room hire, and golf merchandise sales. Jack can offer discounts on group bookings and green fees and we also intend to offer Early Bird (5.30am to 7.30am) and Twilight (6pm onwards) green fees in May, June, July and August of 2020. We are not an affluent club, we aim to provide a warm welcome, a very good golf course, and value for money for our customers - members and visitors alike. We hope to welcome you to Breightmet GC and for you to enjoy our course and experience the friendship yourself.

Up and Down.

Nice wide fairways and well manicured under the tree lines. Drives need to be of a decent length to reach safety on many holes and some final shots to the greens are over a ditch or/and uphill.Some holes are a bit up and down and similar.

Very nice course. Greens and fairways were in perfect condition. Quite forgiving off the tee but the greens are undulating and hard to read. Couple of tough par 5s, that played straight into a strong breeze, really ruined my round.

Great course.

A lot of time and effort have gone into this course since my last visit. It has a much nicer look about the whole place, they have tidied it up all over giving it a much nice look throughout. The young lady behind the bar is a real credit to the place and works really hard serving 2 bars at once and never has you waiting. Her father is a true gent and helps out if needed.

Stunning Breightmet

This course deserves to be played it a great layout with plenty of interesting & challenging holes. ..it's in top condition at the moment. ..greens are true & without a blemish on any of them. ..fairways are well defined. ..credit to the greens staff & a hart felt welcome in the pro shop. ..could do with a bit more signage coming off the 8th to fine the 9th tee & the same coming off the 10th to find the 11th tee...the use of a few buggies would have helped my playing partners but I'm sure they will feel the benefits in a couple of days time lol.

Probably played the course at it's worst time. It was extremely wet and very boggy in places. A course I would imagine in the summer, that tests golfers of all levels.
Hope to return when the weather picks up
