I have worked in Manchester for 20 years and never had the chance to play Manchester GC previously - what have I been missing!Played it a couple of weeks ago in their festival week and was massively impressed.You would not believe you are less than 20 minutes from the centre of Manchester. This is a big, strong golf course that is long of the back tees and open to the elements (6500 yards) - I can imagine that it is a brute when the wind blows.Fantastic mix of holes, short par 3's to 200 yard +, short and long par fours (the SI1 is a brute) and par 5's that give you a chance if you are on your game. Great greens, well bunkered, fast fairways and tough rough if you get well of line. the last 4 holes will really test your game right to the end.Great half way hut (try the pies!), friendly clubhouse and all round great place. I will be back soon.
