I can see The Pennines from here....
Played here on day two of my Cheshire Tour and once again was treated to a great test of golf and a friendly reception! Located 5 minutes from Altrincham (where we stayed at a very compact & clean 'motel' style accommodation - The Altrincham Lodge) this course has a been landscaped in a beautifully mature and pretty forest.
The first six holes are set in deep woodland with some fantastic oak trees lining every hole providing a foreboding atmosphere to the terrain. The course itself is reasonably flat but requires a lot of thought and you will need to pick your spots each time, to have a clear second shot to the greens. The fairways were well looked after with few divot marks spoiling the turf and the greens, despite the northern weather, had clearly held up well in a terrible summer. You can see The Pennines from the 7th, 8th & 9th holes, although they are someway in the distance but it adds to the 'vista' all the same.
Everything about the place suggests the members care alot about the course and The Clubhouse would sit happily in any affluent London suburb! I would certainly play here again and would happily recommend it to fellow TSGers, however at £30 mid-week, this may stretch some peoples budgets. However, would definitely play here again! :-)
