What the club says: The first nine holes, or new nine to the older members, was designed by the renowned golf course architect and 5 times Open Champion James Braid and lies north of the Clubhouse. It is situated on tree lined parkland surrounded by Dean Wood, presenting a gentle but pleasant introduction to the back nine. The second nine, which are the original nine holes presents a totally different challenge, demanding a high degree of accuracy and good shot making, with each hole consisting of sloping fairways and small undulating greens.

Out of bounds to the right on the first nine and left on the back nine, is a constant threat to the wayward golfer. Don't let this deter you, playing golf at Dean Wood is a challenge, but you will also be rewarded with some of the finest views of East Lancashire.

The front 9 holes let the course down and that you have to give way on the tee at several holes. The course was not full but we did have to wait on a several holes.

Course in pretty good condition. Greens were quite slow and varied in pace. Always a good course for a round of golf.

Course was a bit wet after all the rain we've had, but stood up very well. Greens ran very true and still quite quick.

Nice course, worth playing

Played Dean Wood on one of their open days, great value. Friendly welcome in pro shop and clubhouse. The course is quite impressive with some visually stunning holes from elevated tees. Some tricky par 3s especially 15th and 16th. Good layout with variety of holes. A little up and down in places but not exhaustive. Greens true and good speed. Will be back next year for sure.
