Worth playing but tough walk

Mytton Fold has fantastic views but the course is a hard walk - However I recommend that people play this course - it has small greens so having a good short game is important. The top 3 holes have fantastic views and on a clear day you can see Blackpool Tower. Hotel is really good and welcoming.

Memorable scenery....

I attended the Grip Par Open in June 2018 with a few other TSGers at Mytton Fold, Lancs. a very long drive from West London, but worth it for the unforgettable scenery of the Pendle Hills/Ribble Valley.

The design of the course is very up & down, literally, with out of bounds on both sides of some fairways, always having to watch out for "FORE".... a bit of a pain., also having buggies as very hilly, is not my kind of golf courses for enjoyment, I prefer to walk the course even if steep climbs and descents.

The fairways were in excellent condition, but the Tee boxes and greens left to be desired, a shame as an excellent green makes the golf course far more enjoyable and one wants to return.

The water comes into play on quite a few holes, watch out specially so on the uphill or down hill lies when selecting your club.

One memorable hole for me:
The 13th, Par 5, named the Runway (maybe I liked this hole because of my work in the Aviation industry for 20 years!!!!!!):

HOLE is situated at the very top of the course where one gets the most fantastic & memorable views, there is a watch tower to see where the drives will end, fairways sloping to the left all the way to the green with sloping sides too. A hole I played well on the 2nd day if it was not for hitting a buggy in front of me ( should never have been parked there) and my ball went right instead of left as planned....

The weather was fantastic, the Hotel lovely with excellent breakfast, excellet food after the golf.
The company was pleasant.

The Clubhouse is nice and modern with a very pretty courtyard where one can relax after golf.

Friendly welcome in the Proshop which is at the back of the hotel with different routes for access if you are walking or driving a car or a buggy. A pleasant garden with chairs/tables by the 1st Tee/Proshop.

2 car parks: one for the hotel and a very large one for the golf at the back.

Would I return? probably not as far too far to drive & the course, although memorable, is not my kind of course for personal enjoyment.

Please do not let my personal views deter you for paying a visit to Mytton Hall GC as you will get a warm welcome & the hotel is very conmfortable.

THE END......

Actually, one more thing: I discovered something I have never seen on a golf course before: there were little green recyclable plastic Tee pegs which are used to secure the divots down stopping the birds from disturbing those replaced divots. Brilliant idea.

You will be tested...

Played here in Grip Par Open in aid of British Inclusive Golf charity... superb course, great food and rooms in the hotel and beautiful views across Ribble Valley...but if you like playing off flat lies, this is NOT the course for you!

However, if you like a challenge, beautiful scenery (that I will remember for a long time) and manicured fairways you'll love it. Alas, I didn't break 100 on either day here but I can't blame the course... leave your Driver in the car and play conservatively. The only negative here is the Greens, can't really dress it up any other way...but they need some love and water.

That said, they are suffering drought-like conditions at the moment so I am sure they are doing the best they can, in difficult circumstances... would definitely go back!

Fantastic Scenery

This visit was part of the BIG (British Inclusive Golf) GRIP Par Tournament. One of my playing partners was the ex club secretary so he did give me a clue where to hit on the Saturday. Paring the first and birding the second I had high hopes but once you started climbing the hills, the wheels came off my game. Some of the holes a simply brutal off the white tees. With the wind up on the heights holding the fairway can be almost impossible. The course is situated not far from Pendle in among the 3 Peaks. The scenery is simply stunning. On the ex secretary's admission investment into the course has be sparse in recent years. Some of the greens and tees were a bit ropey. It just look tatty in places. It needs a good manicure to bring it back to its best. The Hotel is very clean and the staff very welcoming. Food very good prices not cheap but reasonable for a Hotel. The practice facilities are pretty poor, just a driving net and chipping green. All in all a testing course in a wonderful setting. Its a 6+ hour drive for me from Essex up the dreaded M6. I would play it again but its not one of my Favorites. 3 of the Toughest holes would be 1 at very trick 130 par 3, 14 a long elevated par 4 and 18 a monster 220 par 3 up hill!!
