What the club says: At 5982 yds it is not a short course and you need to pace yourself accordingly. Grass growth on the course is sturdy and there is an abundance of heather and gorse. As the course is quite open to the elements, the wind can often be a tough challenge, very similar to a links course with swirls, eddies and gusts that you would normally associate with a seaside venue. It is not uncommon to see a herd of deer whilst playing a round and encountering a number of pheasants is not unusual.

Given the contours of the land , built around hills, this is a well laid out test of accuracy.

Scary

Good Course ruined on the back 9 by the criss crossing narrow fairways. Balls being shot allover the place. My friend had one land within 3ft of where he was stood on the fairway. and several other balls coming quite close. Pace of play was very slow which caused alot of hold ups. Had 2 women hitting balls within short distances of us who must of also got frustrated with the delays. Took 4hrs 45mins in a buggy as a 2 ball just shows how long the delays where. Pro shop and staff very friendly.

Loved this course and the members.

A lot of improvements have been made to this course since I last visited it. Well worth a look, well done to all involved.

Top Heathland Course

Dunscar is a great heathland course, played on the side of the Pennines, there's hardly ever a flat lie.
It's a great challenges of golf, some lovely par 3's, a good mixture of par 4's & 5's. Greens looked superb, but were heavily sanded today, which made them a little bit slow, but they'll be superb in the summer.
The addition of the pond in front of the third tee is definitely a good move, it was a bit of an eyesore before.
Well worth a visit for some good golf & outstanding views.

I have grown to like this course more and more. They have spent quite a lot of time getting things right here and if you have not played it for a while you will be surprised on how well it plays now. The greens are great and the addition of a water hazard and a few extra bunkers have helped.

Good challenge

A really nice moorland course with a great variety of holes.
Be aware of the weather as there can quite often be a morning mist/fog that hangs around a bit.
It's picked out across the bottom of the pennines, so there doesn't seem to be a flat lie on the course.
The first hole a short par 4 lulls you into a false sense of security, but its amazing how often the farmers field out of bounds tight left gobbles up your ball.
It's a superb course & very often very competitively priced on Golf Now.
Well worth a visit.

Top heathland course

Dunscar is an excellent heathland course & is always in great condition.
It's a challenging track woven across the lower Pennine hills, which means you rarely have a flat lie. Therefore position off the tee can be crucial at times.
The rough isn't overly penal, but the coarse heathland grass can make it difficult to get out of at times.
The greens are superb, flat & true, even if some of them are like putting on the side of a hill.
The welcome is always friendly, all in all a great experience.

Cracker

Dunscar is a little cracker. It's up & down a bit, with a number of holes on the side of slopes, but it's a cracker. There are a handful of blind drives, but there's nothing too ominous on the other side, so you can go for the marker post.
It's tight in a couple of places with OOB markers, as I found to my cost!
There's hardly a flat putt on the course, but the greens are superb. Bunkers excellent too.
Top this off with great views, friendly staff & members & all for £10 at 7am on Golf Now, what's not to like?

First visit

Played on Sunday 7th July 2019. Quite a tight course but longer than expected and I found it very challenging (in fact it beat me up quite badly). The par 3's seem extremely difficult, but the par 5's slightly boring. I played in the evening so the Course was quiet but I did catch up the 3 ball ahead eventually. A lot of holes cross each other which is off-putting when driving, for fear of endangering people. Sadly there was a group of 5 playing together which eventually fed back to me and caused delays. They were also very loud, shouting and cheering and even throwing putters at missed Puts. I did enquire after the round (the bar had shut though and few staff) and was assured they were members who played regularly. They should know better then so a slight concern this sort of behaviour is tolerated. 9Iassume a 4-ball is still the Max?)

Good Value Course

Good value golf course which enjoys great scenery over the Lancashire Countryside. Front 9 is better than the back 9 which is a bit tight with a shared fairway although the Par 3 16th is a pretty and challenging hole. Good practice facilities and pro shop.

A cracker

A cracking course. Well laid out across the undulating terrain with lots of swales & hollows. Yes, there are a few blind drives, but it adds to the fun.
Greens are in superb condition, can't say the same for the bunkers.
Top this off with the views of the surrounding countryside & you have a course not to be missed.
