Reddish first came to my attention many years ago in a book called 'Britain's most extraordinary golf holes' where it's 18th was featured. I finally got round to playing it in 2020. There's plenty of clubs to choose from in the area to the South of Manchester and while I think this is one of the better ones, I didn't enjoy it as much as some of the other reviewers.
The first 5 are on the same level as the clubhouse and feel a little crammed in but are still good. Par 3 4th has trouble everywhere and is an intimidating tee shot. At the 6th you come to a huge drop par 3 into the valley and these holes near the river were my favourites, 6, 7, 16 & 17.
The 13th is worth a mention also, a long par 4 where the second shot has to go over a big ridge to a small hidden green with a big hollow next to it and a pond not far away. I walked off thinking it was one of the hardest par 4's I've played. Well done to anyone who makes a par there.
