DESCRIPTION:

The Heaton Park Golf Course is a picturesque Championship standard golf course, situated in the scenic grounds of Heaton Park. Designed by five times Open Champion J. H. Taylor it was opened to the public in 1911 and has been the host venue for many prestigious events, both professional and amateur. The main course at the Golf Centre is a parkland course, boasting spectacular views over the Pennines and surrounding countryside and offers several imposing tee shots. Three lakes in the park, play a prominent part in every round, especially on the 193 yard 11th hole. Being a long par-3 and signature hole to the course, J. H. Taylor designed a challenge for all golfers across a deep water filled ravine, to a raised plateau green. Indeed, former Open Champion, Henry Cotton once described this hole as "the toughest par-3 in England". Peter Allis described the 15th hole as one of the most scenic holes he'd ever seen. Amongst many, famous players Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen. Heaton Park was voted 'Best Municipal Golf Cours in Gt Britain 2005'. Visitors are welcome 7 days per week.

Heaton Park

If you are going to Play this course just be aware that on some of the holes you could be in for a wait to tee off. At one point there was 3 groups on the tee waiting. The course itself was in very good condition and the greens well kept but it does have a lot of hills to walk up but they do keep you fit. overall enjoyable round apart from the waiting around.
