After yet another monsoon turned up to play on a soggy Sunday - nice little pitching range to get you pinging your wedges but sadly no tee pegs on the tee mat for your longer clubs in the driving net - putting green holes are really small so it's no wonder the course holes look like you seeing it like a dustbin lid !!!.
Straightforward opening 2 holes before that 3rd hole drive - it's a bit silly as you've got to carry it I reckon 205 which is beyond me but the problem is there's no bail out shot and you ain't got a clue whether you have made it or not even if you do hit a good 'un !! .
There are some nice holes which if we had a normal summer would be nice to play -Greens were really good lovely to putt on.
Got to agree with a tee boxes comment they were uneven which I'm not a big fan of but the cut and prepared was nice but with plenty of trees and rough stuff to make you want to hit it - All in all I enjoyed it wouldn't mind giving it another go in dry weather .....

This was the first time that any of our members had been to HG so it was a complete shot in the dark for us all. I was worried if the game would go ahead at all after the typically awful weather on Saturday with constant rain all day and night. However the course was fully open and they allowed buggies which is a must for our society as we have players can't play without one.

The pre-game bacon butties were very nice and served by an ever so friendly caterer! The welcome from the pro was also great! There is a nice practice area here with a 100 or so yard pitching area and a large putting green with strangely small holes in it!

You tee off on the first over the road into the course and as soon as you hit the fairway you realise how wet under foot the course is. Not their fault of course, just so frustrating for summer golf! The 1st has a ravine in front of the green but not much else to worry about. There's then a very straightforward par 3 with a couple of bunkers that were full of water, again not the courses fault.

The 3rd is an extremely tough par 5 SI 1 and a hole that I took umbridge with. You have to drive a huge carry over a wide brook through a narrow entrance to reach the fairway. The carry must be easily 200 yards to get on the fairway and in heavy conditions and such a tight target I feel it's asking too much of ordinary golfers. Only 1 of my 4 ball got anywhere near clearing it.

The next hole of note is the 8th, a very nice mid-length par 4 where a good drive leaves you the option of go for the green over the large pond or lay up. It would need a good shot past the hole to take it on as the green slopes back towards the water.

All of the holes on this course are tree lined and tight. It's not the tightest course you will ever play but it is tight and good use of trees make them a real hazard.

The 11th is probably the best par 3 on the course, playing around 170 yards down hill with a 2 tiered green.

The 15th hole is the best hole on the course and one of the best I've played in Cheshire! It's a par 4 of only 270 yards downhill so within reach of many, but it's protected front and left by a huge pond that must gobble up so many golf balls! All 4 of our group played it differently, me going for an easy 7 iron to the fairway then a big sand wedge to the centre of the green for a tidy par, thank you!

The 18th is very similar to the drive on the 3rd but not as big a carry. Then it's a very long second shot downhill then back up hill to the green that's right in front of the clubhouse, all under the watchful eye of a statue of Sir Allistair McKenzie! Nice touch! I suppose after Augusta Stockport is the next logical step.

Although the course was very wet under foot and some of the bunkers were temporary lakes, the greens were surprisingly excellent! Very dry and true with a good pace, undoubtedly even better in a proper summer!

Because of the very tough conditions with the course giving nothing back and the fact it's a tough track anyway we had a very low winning score which wasn't a surprise. For a narrow course it's quite long and in these conditions the ball stopped dead every time with no role, so it played very very long!

For me this course was OK. It's one of those I would happily play again but also wouldn't miss if we never came back. But in fairness others thought more of it than I did. Which is always a good thing. It will probably average 7/10 between us all.

Hard to give an accurate review as the course had suffered a deluge of rain the day before. The course therefore was very very wet and probably not typical for a summer's game.

Fairways had standing water, bunkers were like swimming pools. But remarkably the greens were in fine condition. A really nice roll, and I guess even if the course had been dry, these would have been the best part of the course.

There are some good holes, some of which are very intimidating off the tee, the 3rd and 18th spring to mind.

Clubhouse staff really friendly serving good food at reasonable prices.

All in all a course I would visit again but my eye would be on the weather.

No Lee today so I'm diving in with the first review for our society of Hazel Grove, 3 hours after playing.

The summer has been a wash out this year and the course has suffered. Standing water on 1 green and a few fairways, and just a general feeling of muddy ground underfoot. We were told preferred lies were in operation. In July! Some courses hold water ok but this one is struggling. Bunkers unplayable, and fairways were just collapsing under the club in some places, making iron strikes difficult. I tried to ignore this in my review score.

The course is ok, a bit bland with no real stand out holes. Maybe a 7/10 in good conditions. Tee boxes were too often not level, having to find a flat area to tee off from is a pet hate of mine. The greens were exceptional, however, among the best i've played this year, quick with a true roll, if you missed a putt it was your own fault.

I'd play here again in better conditions, review score may improve, may not.

The greens are the main protection of this course being very tough to read. Position off the tee and approach shots are important here.
Some challenging holes particularly the par 3s. Hole 11 is a hog back narrow green and very difficult to land. Hole 13 will indeed be unlucky for some as it is 200 off the yellows. On the flip side the par 5s can be reached in 2 especially hole 12 with a good birdie chance.
Clubhouse is a little dated but hospitality is good.
