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 layout but fairways not very lush maybe due to not being watered and greens far too slow for this time of year.

A nice course with excellent facilities but felt the green fee of £65 was steep for this course.

Cheshire / Manchester Gem

Dunham Forest is a true gem in the Cheshire / Greater Manchester area.

A warm, welcoming club with fantastic facilities and amenities.

The course is typically in great condition owing to the sand base, allowing for better drainage (which helps in Manchester). Greens are particularly good, and have been known to be dialled up to be firm and fast.

Dunham offers a nice balance between playability and challenge. A higher handicapper can easily go out and enjoy a round without feeling like they got beaten up by the course, while a lower handicap can get a good challenge particularly from the white tees.

All in all a great course and club which I would recommend everyone try.

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.

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!)........
