Superb course

Play this course now regularly, one of the best in my opinion in the Northwest. A good test of golf, with different challenges on each hole. Absolutely love playing here.

Hilly but playable course.

This was the first time that I ventured over to Harwood and I did need my satnav to find it! However, it was an enjoyable eighteen holes despite a few climbs that would not please everyone. The fairways and greens were in excellent condition although the front nine did contain a fait few slopes? There were a few crossovers on the back nine but the fairways were somewhat flatter.

Cabbage greens

Greens were holllow tined instead of micro tined weeks ago and have not recovered. To say they're the worst greens I've ever played on would be an understatement - deadly slow, bobbly, look like broccoli, covered in sand and huge holes and indents from the tining. The member I played with couldn't stop apologising for the state of them. Poor.

Great Condition

Had a ring round local courses and chose this one as all 18 greens were in play. Mats on fairways and some tee mats in play but otherwise the course was in good condition for the time of year and has great views as the first 9 holes climb up the hillside. Greens in good condition.

A Course of Two Halves

Some climbing involved during the front 9 to get your pulse racing but you get some fantastic views. Flatter back 9 with two Par 5’s. Entertaining course, well presented with decent greens - will come back.

Great but tricky course

I've been a member of HARWOOD GC for just over 18 months now and have to say its a fantastic course not very long but not an easy course to play it will catch you out if you approach it thinking it looks easy well maintained by the green keeping staff friendly members and a great pro who,s always on hand to give advice also a nicely stocked shop for anything you need all in all a great golf course highly recommended.

Nice looking course. In decent condition considering the time of year, but a few holes on temp green which were unplayable really. Some nice holes, but also some drab holes. Lots of pressure from members behind meant we had to play very quickly, almost having to get to the ball, hit the shot and keep walking. Very rushed and felt uncomfortable the whole round really. The fact we got round in 2hrs 55 mins says a lot really. Shop closed all day Sunday. Nowhere to sign in or grab a drink/chocolate beforehand. Full price (£20) despite reduced facilities and temp greens. Wouldn't return.
