What the club says: Fairfield is parkland course that’s set around a reservoir, so it enjoys quite a unique location compared to the other courses in the area. A great course for all levels of player, it demands accuracy as opposed to length off most of the tees and you’ll be required to hit the middle of the fairway on a number of holes if you want a shot at the green.

This is a testing and very enjoyable Par 70, 18 hole course of 6058 yards, with a standard scratch of 69.

Charity Day

I have played this course as a visitor over the last 6/7 years as an invited guest and this year the course really impressed me. The new clubhouse forced changes to the layout of the course but this has made for a fantastic finish, the 17th & 18th holes make for a fantastic ‘potential card wreckinng’ holes, a real challenge that you will remember the most.
The course is in great condition and has matured well. The new clubhouse and food in there were spot on. Thoroughly recommended.

Nice price to play, but.......

Decided to give this course a go on their "Happy Monday" deal and I was more than happy to pay a tenner on what looked like a decent track on paper. Friendly welcome in the pro shop, large practice putting green outside the modern looking clubhouse. Stood on the 1st tee looking towards the 1st green all looked good, however I soon found out how disjointed this course felt and became. Looks like they have had to do a little redesigning due to the adjacent housing development and not all of it has paid off in my opinion. There are some decent holes like the par 3 10th over water and the par 5 finishing hole towards the clubhouse, but there are also some annoying holes like the par 5 9th with little room for error and the par for 11th which is very patchy at best. One good feature are the greens which were quite true and a good speed when I played. Also there seems to be a very relaxed dress code as a few people were playing in football shorts and cargo shorts with shirts hanging out which gave it a look of a municipal type course, shame. Glad I tried it for a tenner but wont be rushing back.

Tricky course

The conditions weren't great after lots of heavy rain recently. Even so the course was in good condition. Fairways mats were needed, but I'd forgotten mine, so played from the semi rough. All but two greens were open, one of the temps being an easy par 3. Given the weather and it being late in the season, I'd definitely return to play in better conditions.
My only gripe and it's a small one, is because of the recent rains the greens were unable to have been cut, making the greens slow. But its fully understandable due to lots and lots of water falling in Manchester. Who would have guessed.
See someone with a tan in Manchester, it isn't a tan, its rust...

Excellent course. I wasn't expecting too much after reading reviews that the greens were not very good. The greens were brilliant, as was the whole course.
We came on a society day and if I had my
way we would play it all the time.
It's the best value for money course I have ever played. It puts some courses who charge double Fairfields fees to shame.
I can't praise it enough. You DEFINITELY need to play this course. Plenty of different type holes. It's great.

Shocking course,most par 4s are drivable and the greens are in a terrible state,it rained in the morning but was clear in the afternoon and the course was still waterlogged,only plus is the people are very friendly so if you want to play golf don't bother coming but if you don't mind someone down your ear for an hour talking about the old course then this is for you.

I haven't played this course since way back in the late 80's. In the meantime, the course has been redesigned to take into account changes to the area (The M60 motorway and a housing estate). Some of the old holes still remain and there are well planned and thought out new ones to test your mettle.
I had a very enjoyable day, the course is in exceptional condition and the newly opened clubhouse is a fabulous 19th hole. Steve, the club pro, was very welcoming and gave me some good tips. The members who were out on the course were all friendly too. It may have been a long time since I was last here, but it won't be long before I am back... The week after next to be precise, it's already been arranged.

Played here for the first time today. Course a little wet after the morning rain but conditions were still pretty good. Lots of nice challenging holes, especially the 17th and 18th! Could do with better tee markers if i'm being picky but a nice clubhouse and friendly staff so will definitely visit again.
