• I often play this course, which is generally in good nick however, having played last Sunday, I feel I have to congratulate the green staff on the excellent condition of both the T boxes and greens. The fairways were a little worn in places however that can only be expected as a result of the amount of rain we had over the winter/spring. Some positive criticism: It would help if the 150 markers were more prominent on the fairways and, it might also be an idea to mark the damaged areas on the faiways as GUR to prevent some golfers walking over them therefore preventing their natural recovery. All in all a very well maintained,reasonably priced, course which I will continue to use on a regular basis

  • After a week of very heavy rain we arrived at the course expecting the worst. However what we found was a golf course in superb condition from tee to green, the fairways whilst appearing to be very generous punished any player who strayed from them and given the breeze on the course was easily done (the wind turbine visible from the course should have been a give away). Some great challeging holes on the course and none of the par 3's were as easy as the yardage would seem. A great day was had by all and we will be booking a return visit.

  • Considering the weather we have had the course has been excellent , our group has played here for the past four weeks and has been on normal greens throughout . I can only say that during drier times the course will be a gem

  • Quite a flat open track this one, but some long par 4's. Plenty of fairway to aim at on most holes but smallish greens make approach tricky - freezing rain killed any run so hard to tell how would usually play. Nice restaurant for all day brekkie after game.

  • Golf in England's north-west is dominated by links classics such as Royal Birkdale, Royal Liverpool, Royal Lytham and Hillside, but venture inland slightly and there are some great parkland courses that represent unbelievable value for money. Garstang is one of them. Built less than 20 years ago, this remarkably mature and testing layout is home to some of the country's best inland greens and excellent drainage that makes it playable throughout the year. Situated only 30 minutes from Blackpool, Preston and Lancaster, it is ideally located for visiting parties, and, thanks to the large Best Western hotel which is on site, it offers travelling golfers a handy play-and-stay venue. The course itself was designed by PGA captain and master professional Richard Bradbeer in 1992 and meanders along the river Calder and Wyre, offering superb views. Not overly long and quite open, it seems on paper like a walkover, but that is far from the truth as it's fast, undulating greens and low par of 68 offer lots of protection.
