What the club says: This 18 hole park land course threads its way through magnificent mature trees and provides a challenge that is mastered by few. Its unique Manor Clubhouse is surrounded by a 12th Century moat, occupied by two deceptively serene white swans.

The extended course was designed by Gaunt & Marnock and incorporates modern specification greens which provide excellent playing surfaces throughout the year.

Whilst not extremely long by modern standards the 6008 yards have stood the test of time.

Very good

A very nice course which is deceptively challenging (as you can see from my score!). Seriously it's a cracking course, in great condition & the greens in particular were superb.
It's quite tight in places & tree lined, so it doesn't take much to be off line & in a bit of trouble. There's also the odd blind drive which I know some don't like. However don't let that put you off.
I'd heard you could clearly see the difference between the old & new 9's but I disagree, I thought they were both very good.
It's a superb layout, it's a great test of golf & its in superb condition.

A hidden gem

2nd time playing this course and even better this time around. Beautiful setting and really well kept course. Some of the fringe rough is more like actual rough but that is really nit-picking. Fairways and greens lovely. Will play again!

early start at Wigan

Absolutely love this course, personally find the 1st 9 very challenging (don't know why). In superb condition, greens a little slow today with the rain but thoroughly enjoyed the round, great company (banter).

Nice course, worth playing

Played Wigan GC for first time in one of their open events. Well organised, friendly welcome in clubhouse. No pro shop on site. Good practice facilities. Course in excellent condition, greens true but not too quick. A few blind holes from tee, a couple of tricky par 3s, especially the 1st hole. A bit of walking between some greens and the next tee. Food and drink also good, nice outside sitting area overlooking the "moat" that runs around the elegant clubhouse. Well worth a visit for sure

Nice course, could of done with a slight cut on the greens, only short but very tricky! Ball has to be in the right place! Lots of run offs on the fairways and greens!

Nice course

Challenging layout and tight in places. Shot selection is important. Was a little disappointed with some greens though, clearly pitch marks not been repaired which is a let down for a private course

First impressions on visiting the course, hard to know where to go as a visitor as there is no pro shop and both door are keypad locked with no one around to ask or let us in, other than that the course itself is fantastic hard to follow in places as holes kriss kross just lacking a few signs but not to take anything away from the course lovely trek with testing holes certainly play harden in the summer months.

First time i'd played here. course in very good condition. work was being done to some fairways but didn't hinder play. greens running true although perhaps a little slow on some. Overall great value and nice little course. will definitely be back.

Golf Society opening venue

Played with a Society and although not the cheapest around the course was great and considering the recent weather the greens especially were in fantastic condition.
I would definitely recommend Hesketh GC.

Very average

Played after reading good reviews online, the condition was not bad for November but 2 winter greens for no apparent reason. The other greens bobbly.
Just a very average layout with no real signature holes. The new 9 are much better than the old 9 but that isn't saying much. Overall fairly short and easy.
Worth about 15 quid on teeofftimes but no more than that sadly.
