What the club says: The Club was formed in October 1891. Pleasington is without doubt one of the best tests of golf in the North-West of England, with a superb layout, being part heathland in character with some heather. This beautiful and picturesque golf course is within 2 miles of exit 3 of the M65 Motorway in Pleasington, a rural village area on the outskirts of Blackburn, with magnificent country views.

Not convinced

Always referred to as one of the best courses in the North West, but for me it doesn't deserve the hype. Never had a decent welcome in the pro shop ; the course has some forgettable holes (3, 11 & 17 as examples) and it's over priced. Clubhouse great and the welcome in the bar has always been great, but the course just doesn't blow me away.

Played beginning of Sept in light rain after wet spell the week before.
Played from white tees, didn't go into clubhouse which looked nice from the outside. Course is not overly long of particularly difficult, its defence largely in narrowish fairways and the greens which are not small but were in good condition and I suspect are quite quick and tricky in the dry. Lots of changes in elevation on parts of the course which is set in great scenery. Be prepared for a number of blind tee shots (a pet peeve of mine) which are a pain on first time of playing, especially the par 5 7th where i hit a drive straight at the marker post and lost the ball when 2 it needed a hybrid. Fairways and bunkers all in good nick, rough lush but fine.
I'm a member elsewhere and enjoyed the round but I'd say 3 things about paying a green fee as a member, only one of which is about this club.
1. I was allowed to play from the white tees but asked to play the par 3s from the yellows when there seemed ti be no good reason for that. This can only be because they want to preserve the white tees for comps (uo yours, visitors)
2. Even though it's the going rate, £50 is still a lot for 4 hours of golf on a decent golf course. This isn't Pleasington's fault and they probably don't need the money as much as some but this will price out many.
3. The club has a blue tee set but I wasn't given the opportunity to play from it. As a cat 2 golfer I'm not going to chew the course up and in 2020 more clubs need to be providing all their tee sets for competent visitors. I know this isn't a popular view but this needs to change.

4/5. Enjoyed my day and the course which I'd happily play again. 1 point deducted for being made to play from yellow tees on the par 3s.

Nice course, great greens.

Visited Pleasington for the first time early Jan. Nice varied mix of holes and surprisingly undulated course. The greens were very good, the Par 3s deserve mention as they were all very good. Not the warmest of welcomes from the young lad in the pro shop who was more interested in playing games on his phone than welcoming visitors!

Played this course in early October. I was expecting it to be wet and boggy after all the rain but it was anything but! Great course and the greens played true, you can tell that there has been investment in the course recently and it’s doing the trick. I’ll definitely be going back.

Lovely course with some interesting holes. Unfortunately there were strong winds and heavy rain for much of the round which retracted a little from the visit however I would definitely like to return hopefully with more clement weather.

Society Day

Even with recent bad weather the course was excellent, greens true and fairways well maintained. The staff looked after us and the food was great. For a society day cannot recommend higher. We were very pleased with our choice, give it a go!!

Cracking Lancashire course.

First time at Pleasington GC and had a brilliant experience.

Warm welcome in the proshop & club house to start the day - fantastic bacon sarnie!

The members we came across were as welcoming as anywhere I have played. The course was in fantastic condition from tee to green. The only gripe would be the difficulty as a first time player becoming unstuck on some of the challenging holes, not knowing the line etc, but never the less a great day out and excellent value for money.
