What the club says: Over the years, the par 69 has matured superbly, with its manicured fairways and undulating greens, it has gained a reputation for being one of the most popular courses to visit in the North West. At just over 6,000 yards from the white tees, the course now represents a challenging test for golfers of all levels and ability, whilst offering mostly flat and easy walking from greens to tees.

Much improved under new ma5

Having been a member at Clays for over 10 years, it's great to witness the improvements that are being brought about by the new management, both on the course and in the clubhouse. Clays is a course that requires accuracy and provides an excellent test for players of all abilities. I would recommend anyone who hasn't played the course for a while to make a point of visiting in 2018 and see the improvements for themselves.

New Management

Out with the old and the new broom is sweeping clean
Lots of things changing at the club. Green staff have had their hands tied in the past. Greens are improving and come spring and winter out of the way and thete will be a stark improvement

Have played at Clays for the last 16 years and have always been able to play at least part of the course regardless of the weather. Greens have been up and down but the Last 12 months has seen a significant improvement despite some of the off course issues. The most contentious for members has been the rough which has been slowing the round down through having to search for balls. Under the new ownership this is being addresses and I look forward to another year on what is a challenging course.

IMPROVING

The Greens are in really good condition, considering the weather conditions and the course is looking a lot more tidy, as I gather it is under new ownership. It's a friendly Club.

I joined the senior section of this club a couple of years ago and thoroughly enjoy it. The course is a good balance between being too easy and too difficult for a high handicapper like myself. I have managed to par all of the holes at some point and even managed a few birdies. The practice facilities are very good - a driving range and a short game practice area with three target greens and bunkers.

Clays Golf Club review

I have been a member for over 16 years now as a member of the Seniors Section. I feel it is a great club with great members. Albeit there are days when after heavy rain some holes are closed but that does not matter. During the times when there are no problems one cannot fault the club or the course. All the staff are so helpful and courteous and the food is excellent. The Club is now under new management and I wish them all the very best for the future.

Much improved with new management

Played the course a couple of times this winter and it was much improved since last played in the summer. It is under new management and this is reflected in the improved condition of the course. Greens especially good for this time of year.

I would like to amend all those negative reports concerning Clays golf club. Now under new management things are changing rapidly. Greens are excellent. Hospitality second to none. Catering has now got a new cook and food has improved 100%\Come springtime new machinery will be arriving which will complete a major change around at the club.\Challenge all to come and see, you will not regret your visit

The course and club us now under new ownership, and it shows. The course is in great condition for the time of year. The rough has been cut back and greens are surprisingly true. A great round if golf followed by an excellent food choice from chef, Hayley, make for a great experience.

terrible condition

It's been a couple of years since I last played clays and my return found it in poor condition. The greens were desperately slow with scorch marks, barren areas and felt like moss in others. the semi was grown too long and had an abundance of white flower heads - I lost 6 balls! The tees were scruffy (1 tee is off a mat - in June), the bunkers had little sand and missing rakes and there were few yardage markers. Massively overpriced at £27 and they wouldn't match the teeofftime price of £17 even though there wasn't anybody behind us (except a 4ball Lady comp we waved through....while looking for our balls - AGAIN! We complained but instead of immediate action being taken, we've been offered to write to the MD.
