What the club says: Towneley Golf Club was established in 1932 and has been providing golf and clubhouse facilities successfully to the local area ever since. Featuring mature trees and some well placed ditches, this popular course provides a challenge to golfers at any skill level. Competitions are a regular attraction and tuition is available from the golf pro if you're looking to brush up your game.

Towneley is a municipal golf course located on the southern edge of Burnley within easy reach of the M65. It was originally established in 1932 as 9 hole layout, but was later expanded to the current 5834 yard, par 70 course. Set in mature parkland Towneley is a good test of golf despite its short length.

Work Golf

Played today with 4 work colleagues, weather was mixed with some heavy showers , despite this the course was in good condition, the back 9 is more pleasing on the eye than the front . Not the longest course but we’ll set out & looked after , some testing holes in places , an enjoyable afternoon helped by playing 4 under handicap !

Great condition for time of year. For a municipal it had a good variety of holes and was in very good condition.
Would definitely play here again. Thinking of bringing my golf society.
Great value for money. I’ve played many more expensive courses which were no way near as good as this.

I play this course regularly and it is always in good condition. It offers a fair level of difficulty for the average club golfer. Staff are very helpful & polite.

What A Course

Where to start, Towneley Golf Course is a stunning course to play up and down course with no buggies so it is a good walk to get round, the location is very picturesque, the fairways are in immaculate condition as are the greens there is a brook that runs through the whole course so beware the water, when i found out this course was a municipal i didn't believe it, one of the best courses ive played in a while. will return 100%

Nice track.

Nice course in great condition. Greens were terrific, credit to the greenstaff.
Course has a brook running through it which challenges you to risk/reward. Some holes are relatively short par fours however narrow entry to greens and bunkers await wayward shots.
Great three course meal afterwards, stewardess was very friendly made sure we all ate well.
Score 84, handicap 14

Local parkland course set on a hillside in grounds around Townley Hall.
Course can become waterlogged in lower ground areas but overall a good value for money course with ongoing developments to improve drainage.
