What the club says: Its fairways are generous, but tree-lined with mature oak, beech and birch; the classic inland course trees predominate, and the picturesque back nine offers unrivalled views of Petty Pool, an old Cheshire mere, which forms a stunning backcloth, particularly on the eleventh and twelfth holes. The greens, although small by modern standards, are of the quality expected on a championship course.

Play the open comps

Played today in a 4 man team competition. Great value for £40 a man as the course was in excellent condition. We had a bacon sandwich on arrival and an excellent 2 course meal afterwards, the service was Superb. I will definitely be returning and can highly recommend this as a must play course.

ecovering From Hard Summer

A nice course but I am not sure it should be in the Top 100 (100th I think on Golf Monthly).
Still recovering from summer so a lot of bare and uneven patches and unsure on some holes where the fairway started / finished. Hard to get a decent strike when the ball is sat on a sandy and damp bare patch. I have played here before and it has not been in such mediocre condition in parts. Greens were excellent though to be fair.
In terms of layout there are two holes that let the course down. The 6th and 13th that were playing 135 and 115 today and seem to be fillers. If they could improve these two holes I believe the course would be a lot better for it. Some really good holes though and the first is as good as an opening hole as you will find in the area. I will definitely be back though to see if some water over the autumn rejuvenates the fairways. Only other thing lacking was that we arrived at 9 for a 10 tee off and had to go to a local takeaway cafe for a sandwich and coffee as the clubhouse wasn't open.

One of Cheshire’s finest. Every hole has a different character and all of them offer a challenge for all levels particularly for its undulating topography. Excellent Pro shop and clubhouse facilities.

Best in Cheshire

Played this last Monday and found it to be in wonderful condition. Fairways were immaculate despite the dry weather and the greens were quick,firm and a treat to putt on.
A warm welcome from the pro.shop and bar staff added to a great visit.
Strongly recommend a visit either as a 4ball or as part of a society.

Top class course

My second time playing this friendly course on one of their open events. Always nice welcome in clubhouse and pro shop. Course in great nick despite recent wet weather, Greens good for time of year. Tough track with some testing holes, mixture of blind tee shots and dog legs keeps you on your toes. Nice finishing par 3 from elevated towards clubhouse, watch out for OOB on the right though. Great food to finish the day. Will play again for sure

Absolute stunner

I have played Sandiway several times and always it is a complete joy to play. A course that has stood up well to the test of time and continues in my opinion to be one of the best in the North West. It is a gently hilly course with each hole being unique and with the longer holes having fairways that can give very undulating lies. Altogether a fantastic, challenging course to play. In the clubhouse afterwards the guest beer helped to wash down a very nice bacon and sausage bap.

What a course......

What a great course. There are 18 very different holes, with some real gems - especially the back 9 with views over the Petty pool. Greens are excellent, all the par 3's are very strong, you can see why a par 70 has an SS of 72. We had a really nice welcoming clubhouse and serve excellent food. The welcome from the pro shop is second to none. Superb practice facilities, it's well worth a visit either a green fee with friends, or one of the clubs Opens or even with a society! It's the sort of course you'll never forget, it's that good and you'll return time after time.

Played this course for first time in an open team event. Friendly welcome to club by all staff. Course very nice to play, surprisingly dry considering bad weather recently. Greens good, not too quick, hard to read. Course layout good, some interesting holes, some long par 4s. Would like to play in summer when trees in full bloom, proper test of golf.

So granted it was frosty but when I arrived with a member I was charged £20 for a round with 18 temps. Not even decent temps. Some of them are literally just a hole and flag plonked short of the actual green.
To my mind £25 is dear if you are being signed in. To only knock £5 off for 18 temps is shocking.
To top it off when we got to the 9th a 3 ball including a senior and junior and pair of ladies had hopped on ahead off us slowing us right down.
Nice brekky to be fair.

Sandiway is for me the best course in Cheshire, The presentation of the course is always immaculate, the greens are the truest of any you will play. I really love the way the course meanders through the dense ancient woodlands with the most perfect elevation changes the whole way - not too much, but enough to really add to the challenge (and treat the visuals). Some of the holes are v difficult - especially off the whites. Dont be fooled by the length of the course on the scorecard - first its a a par 70 (not 72) at over 6400, but second most of the par 4's are really long when you factor in elevation changes. So feels equivalent to at least 6600. Overall its a top top course.
