I play off 16.

A 3rd visit to this course with BGS, a regular on our calendar.

This is due to the hospitality and warm welcome. Good chat with the pro who always takes a great interest in our society.

This is another great parkland course with challenging holes.

It's a great layout and a good test. Some great views over Lancashire.

It's a course that I would revisit and I would encourage a little more work on the bunkers. This is the only negative but a little TLC and this will be resolved.

I re-visited this wonderful course recently with friends from Bunkers Golf Society...It was a joy to play once again.
The fairways and tee boxes were in excellent condition and although several of the greens might have benefitted from a cut they were all still rolling smoothly and at a pace which was quick rather than fast.
The bunkers were reported by my playing partners to be a little firm underneath the top surface.
The clubhouse is comfortable and the members were pleasant and helpful. Prices were reasonable too. The pro shop was very well stocked and provided a courteous service to us all.
I would be delighted to play this undulating course on a regular basis and can recommend to other golfers without reservation.

Played with the Bunkers GS 4 Aug 19 - Another superb visit to one of the friendliest golf clubs in the area. Well maintained practice facilities and excellent greens as usual. An eclectic layout it poses a decent but fair challenge. The only criticism would be the amount of the sand in a number of the bunkers. For a Sunday, it was refreshing to only take 3 hours 50 for a 4 ball. Well worth a visit.

Played Bolton on a warm August (4th august) Sunday afternoon. Course was in lovely condition following a lot of rain during the week. Course has some excellent short game practice facilities and a grass range, though I didn't use this. Course layout is great and being set in a hillside, there are a few holes that test your driving accuracy as you need to hit the right side of the fairway to stay on the fairway.

Fairways were well kept, tee boxes well presented mostly, a couple had slightly fluffy longer grass. Greens were receptive and true to put on.

Would recommend playing this course and hope it is retained on the society calendar.

This was one of our swingers majors competitions here last year in awful conditions and the club kindly gave us a free round for this years event which was fantastic.
The course was a lot better than I remembered from last year, greens where a bit slow and bobbly but with the rain. The fairways where in really good condition. Let’s hope the sun is shinning on next years outing.

Played this course with the swingers on Sunday. We played here last year and it rained all day so we didn’t get the full benifit of the course but the guys at Bolton offered us a free round this time around that I thought was a fantastic gesture on there part so have to say 10/10 for hospitality.

Anyway all was fantastic the only thing was the greens were a little bobblie but the course was very enjoyable and a great day all round can’t wait to go back next year.

Played here with swingers golf society and it is a great course, very well set out with good variety to the holes. Unfortunately on the day the greens were a touch bobbly but that was probably down the the conditions with it being a wet day. As a society we were very well looked after and I would highly recommend this course to any society

On arrival was greeted by nice friendly staff an food an coffee was with us within minutes. Out on the course your meet by a short par 4 to start we’re you can leave driver in the bag an as found out as we got further round there’s pleanty of holes you don’t need it with few dog leg holes position off the tee is key to a good round here. Fairways were in great condition as was the greens. Overall cracking course great value for money an great staff will be back again soon

We held one of our swingers majors here last year in awful conditions an the club kindly gave us 20 free rounds for this years event which was fantastic.
The course was a lot better than I remembered from last year greens where a bit slow but with the rain we had had that was to be expected I suppose fairways where really good. Hoping it’s third time lucky with the weather for next years outing

Played 2nd June 2019.
Lovely course that is well laid out and offers a variety of different challenges through the 18 holes. The welcome and hospitality you will receive is excellent. Greens were not in a great condition and were very bobbly. Shame and I would hope to put it down to being the end of half term after a period of heavy use.

Played here 2nd June 2019 with Swingers Golf Society.
This is a great course and i wish i could give it a better score, the greens was not in the best condition but this is due to un-repaired pitch marks which have left the greens in not the best condition.
I feel come end june/july this course will be in great condition, every hole is a great challenge even though its small course with only 1 par 5.
That said we will look back next year as the staff are very friendly and the course is a great little course.

I played here with Bunkers Golf society on 14th October 2018 and play off 9hcp.

Bolton is a lovely layout and no doubt it is a great course. However, just through pure chance, I have played it twice now in or after poor weather and towards the beginning or end of the golfing season. Thats not a fair way to review the course as I'm obviously never going to see anywhere in its prime.

That being said, I have to review it honestly based on my visit. The greens were slow and hollow tined [nothing can be done about this in October] but I can see that they are well cared for and would be lovely in the prime months.

The course is interesting and is a great mixture of holes to suit all styles and abilities of golfer. I would recommend a visit to anyone in the area and the club are very warm and welcoming of guests and societies. Get down there and see for yourself.

18th October, 2018, by Bunkers Golf Society

Bolton was a club we last visited in 2016 and we were unlucky enough to catch it on a horrendous day of heavy rain and strong winds. Despite this, members could see the potential in the course and we had been wanting to return as a group again to cast our eyes over it in better conditions. However, the UK weather being.....well, just that, meant that we came the day after yet another storm and despite being warned for heavy rain we were lucky enough to avoid the worst of it.

The course is quite a hilly track with the majority of the course being played with the ball above or below your feet - depending on which way you are heading. This proves a good test of golf as you need to adjust your game accordingly. However, it should be noted that its a fair walk for anyone of poorer mobility.

The greens had been hollow tined a week or two prior to our visit - so once again, we couldn't see them in their absolute prime [they are hand cut to STRi guidance in the summer months] but we accepted this may be the case when we booked to play in mid October. That being said, you could see the quality of the greens and drainage was superb given the heavy downpour the night before - they just rolled a little uneven and much slower that we suspect they would do a couple of months earlier.

The tee boxes were all flat and well tendered and the bunkers for the most part were well stocked with only the odd couple being a bit compacted and clay-like due to the rainfall.

The course itself is a lovely layout of 18 holes - none of which appear to be similar - which is always nice. There are holes that suit the bigger hitters but the majority of the course is designed to reward accuracy off the tee and game management. Its well kept and maintained and is a pleasure on the eye.

The day cost us £30 for golf only at 11am on a Sunday morning - which we thought was fair value without being exceptional and the food in the clubhouse that we paid for additionally was tasty, plentiful and served by attentive and pleasant staff.

All in all, Bolton Golf Club is somewhere we would like to return to once again - and hopefully, next time, in the middle of the summer on a gloriously sunny day [here's hoping!]

Great course layout with different shaped holes, (shame only 1 par 5) blind tees and some fairways on slopes means you need to think your way around rather than just whack driver off every tee. Course is decent condition considering awful weather few days prior and on morning of play, no real soggy patches or standing water.

Only let down was the greens. They had recently been hollow tined, but not all holes filled and grass was very long meaning putts where very bobbly and greens unreasonablely slow.

Would like to revisit in summer months when greens in better condition.

Our last event of the year held at Bolton Golf Club... great club set up in the hills. Great layout with some tough holes. Enjoyed playing the course, it was unfortunate that recently the greens had aeriation holes applied so putting was somewhat tricky. Would love to play the course in the summer months. Great value and well worth a try.

Played this course as our final major of the year with swingers golf society, unfortunately we picked a terrible day weather wise with torrential rain all day, regardless we still had a fantastic day. Really liked the lay out of the course with some picturesque views of the surrounding areas. The greens were very wet but still fantastic and would be great in dry weather. The staff were brilliant and looked after us from start to finish, even going as far as to make ya some custom closest the pin markers with our logo on which was a really lovely touch and much appreciated. Would highly recommend this course far any society looking for a great deal or even anyone looking for a friendly knock

A fantastic and friendly environment to play golf in. The guys in the clubhouse could not do enough for us.
Course was immaculate and greens pure, fast and true. The weather made the day a challenge for the "swingers" golf society`s final major of the year. Throughly enjoyed the course and all it challenges. Hats off to he green staff and the pro who was extremely helpful.

We will be making this a regular outing on our calender. A must play and to top it off the best bacon butties this year .

It started off with high winds and heavy rain and it didn’t stop - the course overall handled the weather conditions pretty well, a few greens were water logged but this couldn’t have been helped with the heavy down pours at times on the day - the staff and venue were amazing - well worth a visit

Had our last major of the year here 26/8/18 and unfortunately the the rain was torrential from start to finish so it’s hard to judge the course based on the conditions! However the welcome and hospitality we received was second to none. You could tell the course was well maintained and even with all the rain you could see if dry, they where great greens! We will be returning next year to play it hopefully in the dry!

We had our last major of the year here and it was just a shame the weather let us down. We had heard great stuff about the course going into it but tough to appreciate it when your getting soaked.
Aside from the weather you can tell the course and layout is lovely, some really testing holes and greens even with the downpour the greens was a lot better condition than I expected.
Team at Bolton Golf Club was fantastic with us an offered a warm welcome and really professional outfit putting our nearest the pin & longest drive with our logos out on the course.
We have booked to be back next year for our major and fingers crossed the weather plays it’s part because we know Bolton is a fantastic course
