Fabulous course - don't miss it!
The first time I played Reddish Vale I was so impressed that I joined the club on the spot.
Eight years later I have no regrets. It is easily the best course in the South Manchester area and competes with Manchester GC as best in the whole region.
A roller coaster ride over ravines and gullies with no two holes the same, with the meandering river in play on many holes.
Beautiful surroundings in the middle of a Country Park.
Oh, and fantastic greens!
Great course, let down by recent weather
Played as a guest on a £12.50 deal after North Manchester closed. Though half of holes were winter greens and most winter tees ALL 18 holes were playable and all had interest of some sort. This is a course you could play over and over again and not get bored. Would love to play it when the course is at its full length but dry.
Friendly Cheshire welcome....
Played here as part of my first trip north of Birmingham on TSG and was pleasantly surprised. Firstly we were warmly welcomed but the Pro in the shop, who knew exactly who we were and who we were playing with (and knew all about TSG!).
The Clubhouse built in local sandstone has a rustic and traditional feeling about it and before heading out I had my first experience of the famous local 'Steak Canadian' baguette! (A minute steak with caramelised onions, very nice it was too). So on to the course itself... the first few holes and pretty straight forward and give you a chance to warm up without any fear of losing balls or straying into thick rough but then once you hit the Par 3 third, you can see the course is going to test you! Not overly long the course twists and turns through local woodland with some tees positioned on high plateaus, the aptly names 'needles eye' giving you a 228 yards shot with a 60ft drop - very testing!! You then cross to the seventh holes where things open up but don't be fooled, you will be tested to the full despite some open fairways, as most holes offer you some tight shots to the green. The rest of the course is pretty, established and very well looked after. However, whilst enjoying the contours of the course, save your energy for the steep climb up the 18th (a 45 degree climb which will leave even the fittest puffing!
All in all, a great venue for the start of our two day Cheshire Tour and one I would recommend you play if you get the chance! :-)
