The term "hidden gem" was composed for this course. Set back in a rural part of Cheshire, Delamere Forest is a throw back to the old days of golfing with a very prim and proper atmosphere with a shirt and tie policy in the Men's Bar. The course itself has a wonderful array of holes snaking through lines of ancient trees and frustratingly difficult heathland. In a nutshell, it’s a course that few know about and for my money that’s half its aura. Delamere is a delight to play whatever the time of year. It’s beautiful in the summer and always in great winter condition.
