What the club says: Founded in 1892 Oldham Golf Club is literally on the edge of the town and at the foot of the Pennines. The course is part moorland and the views from 'top o' course' are quite magnificent, the Cheshire Plain and Jodrell Bank always visible and on clear days the Welsh mountains away to the west come into view.

Moorland course

Steep in parts and quite a few blind holes. Local knowledge a definite advantage.

Issue with booking and paying on line

The course was great but only after I had calmed after being given the third degree in the pro shop. I had booked and paid for the tee time on line through golf now. When checking in before teeing off the chap in the shop was very insistent that I tell him how much I had paid on line as the fees were set out in front of him which were considerably more than the price I had paid on line - the implication being that he was going to charge me extra. I refused to tell him how much I had paid and explained that if he wasn’t happy with the on line price he should take that up with golf now as I had booked and paid in good faith. So, beware if you are asked how much you paid for an on line booking - the chap was quite aggressive and the whole thing was totally unacceptable and so do not intend to visit this club again - even if it was for free.

Quirky but good

I have to be honest, I don't think Oldham will appeal to all golfers. It's short, it's quirky, there are no par 5's, there are a number of blind shots & you need to be a mountaineer in places.
However I loved it. It's in absolutely superb condition, the greens are fantastic.
It brings you in gently with a few short holes which are relatively flat, but still with some good tests of your strategy.
Then from the 9th hole it's a different golf course, it's steep, it's undulating & it's challenging. There are a few blind holes, but for me they added to the experience.
Stood on the 17th tee at the top of the course, the views across Manchester, Rivington & Darwen Tower are breathtaking.
I'll definitely be back.

Good course, very hilly with a lot of blind pins

Enjoyed this course. The front 9 is quite flat and easy going with minimal challenge (a couple of small gullies from the tee box to fairway). The back 9 is very hilly/steep with practically no flat fairways (sloping left to right and right to left). There are also a lot of bling holes so you will have to really know your distances or play pretty conservative.

Nice course with great scenery

First time playing Oldham GC, friendly welcome in pro shop. Good deals on green fees. Course was wet after recent bad weather but still playable. Gentle start as first 9 holes fairly flat, back 9 a different story and not for the faint hearted. A few blind holes even to par 3s like the 13th at 228yds of yellow a real tester. Need to play the course a few times to get to know it well. Some great views to be had though, overall enjoyed the experience.

Course was wet though still very playable. Quite steep climbs/descents so £7 motorised trolley offer worth taking. Many blind holes on back 9. Excellent views. Friendly staff and members. Ring direct rather than going through teetimes or teeoff as will ' do you a deal'!

A very hilly course front nine on lower level back nine on top level in layers. Back nine was like playing with one leg shorter than the other due to the slopes on the fairways. You need to be fit to play this course. Greens in good condition.
