Team Teeuplo heads over to Wilmslow GC in Cheshire.

28/03/2014

A somewhat over used phrase when describing a golf course is 'hidden gem', but in the case of Wilmslow Golf Club it certainly fits the bill.

The Golf club is set in a wonderful Cheshire location just outside Wilmslow town centre. Upon arrival we were greeted in the pro shop by a very helpful and informative young man. The pro shop has an excellent range of golfing apparel and equipment, noticeably from all major brands.

The first note of quality was the teeing areas, they were absolutely stunning and better than some of the greens I have experienced over the years. The 1st tee takes a grand position above the 9th and 18th greens and provides a lovely elevated start to the round. Bunkers play a huge part in the course defences, every hole had a series of well placed and immaculately maintained sand traps. All bunkers were being hand raked by the green staff, providing a great consistency in each, and I had plenty of experience in them! It is likely that the fairways will take on greater definition in the months ahead as the rough was very low and allowed wayward tee shots to go unpunished, although maybe not such a bad thing!

The back nine is one of real quality, an excellent variety of holes with some great Par 3's to note. Holes 10,11 and 12 all require strategic placement off the tee to allow good access to the greens. The par 3 14th plays 180yds uphill surrounded by mature tree line, this hole is stunning. The finishing holes 15,16,17 are all a joy to play culminating with a great par 5 to finish.

Following our round we enjoyed a warm welcome in the club house from a very friendly membership and had a pleasant lunch. The club house sits in an elevated position with great views of the Cheshire countryside. Complete with a driving range that includes covered bays and the latest Trackman technology, this golf club has excellent facilities.

If you are planning for a day of golf then head over to Wilmslow, you wont be disappointed.
