What the club says: This stunning 18 hole championship course was designed by John Bealey and modified by ex-Ryder Cup player and top international course designer Dave Thomas to follow the picturesque contours of the natural landscape. He achieved this so successfully that today the Club is proud to be considered one of the most beautiful parkland courses in the UK.

Great track

First time playing Dunham Forest. Nice looking clubhouse, friendly welcome. Good practice facilities, well stocked pro shop. Food and drink all good. Nice par 5 start, tree lined opening few holes, need to be fairly straight off the tee. Opens out a bit on later holes. Greens true, quite quick and some difficult to read making 3 putts a very good possibility if wrong side of the hole. The course is a good walk a few ups and downs towards the end of the round. A very enjoyable day on a lovely testing course, one I will be returning to for sure.

A wet round

Very wet day but could have been worse. Lovely woodland course, tight in places but very enjoyable and would love to play again in the dry!

Too many distractions

Positives, played 30/12 and the course was in good condition, especially the greens. Downside, members of the public everywhere. Group of 12 ramblers walking across fairways, dog walkers letting dogs roam wherever they like, joggers stopping to pick balls up (that were our drives!)........

Fantastic condition

Very well kept course... greens and fairways in too condition considering the rain also .. only 2 temporary greens also .. great layout .. would recommend this course for night the beginner and the seasoned player as it is tough at times .. the cost per round is a little high but worth it.

Oh what a luck person I am. I had courtesy of the course owing to playing a team match at this great venue. Yet another person complaining about the weather but its the UK after all. Greens a nice sensible pace. Hitting fairways at a premium. Just miss and the ball will sit down. Only complaint are the newer holes 7-11. Just not bedded in to the same maturity of the other holes. May look to play here again if I get hold of some 2-4-1's.

One of the best courses in Greater Manchester, a mix of sweeping fairways through mature woodland and nicely designed newer holes. Greens and fairways in excellent condition, there are good deals here if you are flexible when you can play.
