What the club says: Nelson Golf Club was founded in 1902 at Kibble Bank (9 holes). The Club then moved to Marsden Heights in 1917, with the official opening of the clubhouse early in 1921. The club is situated on a plateau overlooking Nelson and Burnley and visitors are able to reward themselves with the finest series of panoramic views of landscape it is possible to imagine. The late Dr. MacKenzie who laid out the course managed a design which has been skilfully planned to avoid any wearisome climbing. The course is laid out in two loops of nine and the 1st and 10th holes are very conveniently situated by the clubhouse. A large practice ground is available. On a visit to Nelson Golf Club, you will be assured of a warm Lancastrian welcome and be able to enjoy a challenging round of golf and then relax in the clubhouse and savour excellent catering.

This is one of the best value courses in the north of England. Got to play this gem for £20 on a Sunday through the clubs brs booking system. It has so much hole variation, and in my opinion has some of the best par 3’s around. We played after a full days rain the previous day and the greens were true but very quick I would be terrified playing on these greens in mid summer. All in all a great track and can’t wait to return.

Ive played lots of courses in the North East last year and this year back in the North West. Have to say this was one of the most enjoyable rounds Ive had. Every hole different and really interesting -course is in fantastic condition - played on my own and 4 groups of members let me play through - all very friendly both on the course and in the clubhouse afterwards. Cant recommend this course highly enough - one of my absolute favourites.

Excellent course, tee beds, fairways and greens in fantastic condition. Unfortunately a rather dated approach to clubhouse dress code slightly spoilt the day
