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.

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.

Lovely Course

Never disappoints. Lovely fairways and a real challenge. Couple of boring par 3s that I ironically struggle the most on as they are between Gap / PW but otherwise excellent.

Great course and friendly, welcoming members, staff and professional. One of the few courses not playing provisional greens, tee's or mats throughout the winter. I will definitely be back.

Well presented course. Good clubhouse facilities. Greens were not as smooth as I would have liked but that was due to winter scarring. All greens in operation.

Played in a Senior Open earlier this week and in great weather the course was in excellent condition. Off the yellow tees, if you drove reasonably well, a number of the holes can be reached with a short iron so not particularly demanding. Overall a golfing experience not to be missed. Food was very good too. Not sure if it is worth the rack rate of £65 though. The Open will be £26 in 2013, very much at the top end of the scale.

Superbly kept course, staff extremely helpful and friendly. Course undulates quite frequently and provides a good challenge but holes 10-14 suffer from midges due to the nearby lake.

Quality, even in autumnal conditions

Played on a Tuesday morning with a member, due to wet weather we were able to get out early 8:45-ish and were round as a three ball in under 3 and a half hours fairways were amazingly dry for the recent weather and greens were receptive though still quick and very true. Had looked forward to playing Sandiway for many years and was pleased that it met my expectations, now looking forward to a summer round.

Best inland course of North West?

Sandiway is an outstanding course. Every hole is different and very memorable. When you play for the first time, its the sort of place you’ll be able to recall every hole afterwards. It is a massive property - seems to meander through dense woodland for miles. By the time you are at the 14th Tee, you’re a long way from civilisation! The contour, shaping and elevation changes are stunning. Course is always immaculately presented. It drains like a links course and is hardly ever shut. In my opinion, this is the pick of the lot for inland North West courses.

Quality Cheshire Woodland Course

Although it rained throughout our round, the course was in and stayed in excellent condition.
Not a long course but really makes you think when playing numerous blind shots ....A must to play if your visiting the area.

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.

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.
