What the club says: Houghwood Golf Club has a parkland golf course on the edge of the Lancashire Plain with spectacular views over to the Welsh Hills. Large receptive greens used all year and wide fairways provide a good test of golf without spoiling your enjoyment. Head Greenkeeper works closely with the STRI to produce consistently true putting surfaces.

Interesting course

Fairly short off the yellows, but still a decent test of golf with some interesting holes. Course well manicured and good all round condition. Good value and would definitely recommend

Course in excellent condition. Greens well cared for, fairways nice & trim. Only small issues are bunkers need more sand & tee boxes need more care.

Love the course

Great track. Difficult start to the course. Then after the 4th opens up quite a bit to open out your shoulders. Greens are in superb condition. Bar staff very friendly. Food very good. I keep coming here because of the quality of the place. The only negative is that I would not say personally that this is a course that can be walked and played well.

Played here on a baking hot day in June. Course was in really nice condition with fast fairways and even faster greens. Food in the clubhouse was excellent as well.
Definitely one to hire a buggy at though as it's quite hilly

Shame about the weather!

Played for the first time as part of a society day - the weather was initially awful however it did calm & the curse did cope well with the excess water. Nice course, great views and as a lot of the fairways slope, a good challenge. Will go back soon, would like to experience a dry round there - well priced also.

GET A BUGGY!

If you don’t get a buggy you’ll be blowing by the time you reach the 5th tee , I don’t think I’ve played a course that is built on such a slope I think there is only 3 flat holes on the whole course.

It’s a great track mind and if your slightly off your in all sort of trouble as the ground lays away from you plenty of blind shots also so a few lost balls that were in play but as couldn’t see the bounce no idea landing spot.

Greens were very good.

Only downside bar was closed after we finished at 9pm during June ???????
