    This delightful 18 hole park land course threads its way through magnificent mature trees and provides a challenge that is mastered by few. The Club dates back to 1898 and the historical Club House, Arley Hall, is surrounded by a 12th Century moat.

    As you leave Red Rock Lane and drive down Arley Lane, you know that you are arriving at a special place. Manicured fairways, beautiful greens, fantastic views, abundant wildlife, and the tranquility. The moment you catch a glimpse of the Club House you will be aware that Wigan Golf Club is unique in the golfing world.

    I play off 16.

    Visited with BGS on 26th August.

    The deal we got was the best a good club can offer. Great full English to start, 18 holes and a 2 course meal to finish, superb quality.

    Friendly staff and a good chat with the Captain.

    The course .... one of the toughest par 3 starts you will find(especially for a medal)

    The course is tree lined and you will get punished if you are off line. The course is well presented and has some great holes.

    The greens were not at their usual best although not too bad.

    I would highly recommend you visit and societies get in touch as Wigan are very welcoming with the best deals around.

    Wigan is a lovely golf course with a wonderful layout. It can suit both the long hitter and the thinking mans golfer with some holes being quite open and others being tight, requiring you to plot your way around.

    The greens have suffered slightly this year with the wet summer but overall still playing excellently.

    We had breakfast and a 2 course meal after the golf and the value was excellent. The staff are very welcoming. It has become one of our go to destinations and we will definitely be returning ASAP.

    Lovely tree lined parkland course that requires accurate tee to green play, you can't just go around spraying shots and getting away with it with more open courses, which is a welcome challenge.

    Practice chipping and putting area could be bigger and better presented for a reasonably large group turning up in one go, but for regular club golf or smaller groups, this wouldn't be an issue.

    Weather on the day was baking hot but had followed some heavy rain earlier in the week, which I think led to the fairways and greens not being as well / recently cut as we'd seen on previous visits but I've played similar or worse for a lot more money.

    Club staff couldn't be more welcoming and in terms of value for money I don't think we've seen better. I would visit again both as part of society or socially if suggested by friends.

    I think Wigan golf club provides the best value of any events for my society - Bunkers Golf Society.

    We enjoyed a cooked breakfast pre round and a very nice 2 course meal post round. Both meals were very nice.

    The course itself is a favourite of the society with a good mix of holes providing a good test of golf.

    On this occasion, the greens were not quite as good as they have been on previous visits. We have experience a poor summer weather wise and I presume this has taken its toll.

    Still, a venue you should visit if you have the chance.

    Another superb visit to this excellent parkland course in the company of my mates from Bunkers Golf Society. On arrival, our party was welcomed warmly by the club Captain. We were then served a substantial, tasty “Full English” then it was out onto the putting green and into the practice nets to prepare for our round.
    As usual the course was in fine condition - although one or two players did report discovering some waterlogged ground around the track. In fairness there had been some significant recent rainfall and the greens were not quite up to their usual standard. They might perhaps have benefitted from another cut with several putts bobbling sufficiently to take them off their intended line.
    Post round, you could not wish for a more relaxed setting....and time to enjoy the beer garden, wildlife, comfortable furniture.
    The simple, two course meal (Home made cheese burger with chunky chips followed by apple pie and ice cream) was First Class! The chef and service staff were very courteous and extremely skilled and efficient.
    All in all this visit offered us EXCEPTIONAL value for money and I can recommend this venue to golfers of all standards WITHOUT RESERVATION.

    This was my first time playing Wigan GC and with some good reviews from society members I was expecting a great course and it certainly delivered.

    The clubhouse is beautifully presented and very picturesque from the outside with the moat running right around and full of local wildlife. The clubhouse inside is again very nice and well presented.

    The course itself plays a tough test for any golfer. You have to be accurate down this tree lined parkland course or you will be in a touch of bother although not unplayable just makes life that little harder. The full course is very easy on the eye and very well spread about non of the holes feel like your playing on top of another hole (although the 18th intersects the 7th I think). The greens on the day probably weren't the best as they were quite bobbly and were tough too read due to the bobbles, but mid season maintenance can't be knocked. But they were cut fantastic and very easy on the eye from afar. Bunkers are well placed and well stocked on sand. The fairways had plenty of roll and were easy enough to hit off.

    All in all a great course very scenic with a stunning clubhouse. Would recommend to friends and budding golfers alike.

    I visited Wigan GC on 25th Aug 2019 with Bunkers Golf Society and play off 9hcp.

    I love visiting Wigan as it is always in great condition, the course is a wonderful layout and the day always offers great value. This visit was no different as we were looked after from start to finish both on and off the course.

    A tough par 3 start [175 yards with OOB on the right] welcomes you to the course and this continues with tight tree lined fairways and undulating greens. You need to position the ball well around the course to be able to score well and its a great test of golf - primarily because you can't just 'bully' the course with the 'big stick', you need to use course management well.

    The greens on this visit were a bit bobbly compared to previous years and looked to have been scarified or had mid season maintenance in the weeks previous [which is absolutely understandable given the poor summer weather in the UK plus the club needs to do this to make sure the greens play all year round - so its not a criticism, just a case of bad luck for us compared to usual years where they are always slick and smooth]. They were still more than playable and didn't effect the quality of golf on show!!! The rest of the course was delightful and as always, was very easy on the eye.

    The day offers superb value and we always get well looked after. I will continue to sing the praises of Wigan GC and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending it to any golfer. Get yourself down there!

    We took Bunkers Golf Society back to Wigan Golf Club on 25th August 2019 for our final Major of the season. This is our 5th consecutive season visiting Wigan and as always, we were superbly looked after from start to finish.

    Some clubs just know how to do things right and take care of visiting groups to ensure they return in future [with or without the group] and Wigan has always done this. From the office staff through to the caterers, bar staff and committee - we have always found them to be superb.

    The course is always in immaculate condition and is a fair test of parkland golf with tree lined, tight fairways and tricky pin positions on some well protected greens.
    For this particular visit the greens weren't up to the usual standard and seemed to have been through some recent maintenance but they were still in good condition comparable to other courses, but just not the usual smooth Wigan GC roll - and we can only review the club as we find it at the time.

    The fairways were lush and well manicured and despite some recent poor weather in July the course was beautiful on the eye and played well.

    The club house, surrounded by a moat is picturesque and a wonderful place to enjoy a few post round beers in the sun and the prices in the bar are more than fair. The day is superb value and is probably why Wigan is one of our members favourite venues each year.

    The pre round and post round food was plentiful and went down an absolute storm [as usual] and the whole day from start to finish was first class. We sign Wigan's praises year-on-year to other golfers and will continue to do so. If you haven't been before, get yourself booked in for a visit and enjoy it.

    I played this course with Bunkers Golf Society. The course is in great condition and is a thoroughly enjoyable track to play. The food both before and after the round was very nice and all the staff did a superb job in looking afterwards. Wigan definately offers value for money and I look forward to playing the course again in the future.

    The best golfing value in the country. The course is beautifully laid out and offers a stern test to all golfers. The fairways were in great condition and the green, whilst still quick, we’re a little bobbly and slightly disappointing. The food before and after the round was ‘simply lovely’. Great day enjoyed with some great lads. Thanks again to BarryTaylor @clarkes driving range for sponsoring the event.

    Played here 7th July with the Swingersgolf society. The welcome that we got from the club on our arrival was fantastic very well organised now with new owners. The course was in fantastic condition and can not make a fault on the whole day. The staff very welcoming and also the members of the club are great. Its nice to hear members complementing our society outfits. After the golf we headed upstairs for a 2 course meal in which the new chef made was fantastic. Massive credit on the course within a year. Only problem is no pro shop so make sure you head to your local golf shop for your stuff. Think if had a pro shop this would make more appealing. But never the less this course has a lot to offer for golf societies and will be on our calendar for next year. Thanks for having us

    Played here with the swingers society a couple of weeks ago! The course was in great condition despite the torrential rain! The back 9 is a later addition to the course and you can tell the difference in the greens and layout; both front and back equally enjoyable tho! Everything was well maintained with good facilities also! The thing that stood out the most the was value for money, our round included a 2 course meal! Would play here again!!

    Played here with swingers golf society a few weeks ago. It's the first time I've ever played there and managed to score my best of of the season, in really tough conditions too (heavy rain). The course is in top condition with fast, well kept greens. Lovely two course meal after a great game of golf to end the day. Would recommend.

    The 2nd time we’ve played this course as a society and I don’t know what more you could ask for, lovely course, lovely greens, a great warm up area. But best of all one of the best courses we visit in terms of value for money and a warm welcome. Food before and after. Staff really make a fuss of you and I couldn’t recommend highly enough. Even the torrential rain for the first hour didn’t put a dampener on our day

    On what turned out to be a day of torrential rain 20+ of us had a really great time at a course the held up to the conditions fantasticay well. The course is a little on the short side but that allows for a controlled iron shot off the tee which will then give golfers of all ability the chance to hit the greens in 2. The protection of trees and bunkers offers the challenge and with our scores ranging from 20-41 points showed that there was something out there for everyone. Hospitality was great. Value for money was even better and it’s a course I’d be happy for us to play again.

    Well setup course, pretty fair, we had some good scores in our group from players who hadn’t played there before even with the heaviest rain we have seen over this summer. Par 3 8th looks great, safe down the right or go for it over the danger?! Well looked after by the Manager, friendly club house, definitely go back again.

    Played this course with the swingers unfortunately can’t give it full marks as the weather was horrendous so I couldn’t really tell if the green were good or not, but the hospitality and facilities were spot on, to be fair just to get the golf course even playable was a Miri also it was that wet, I played rubbish again and came 21st out of 24 players but still had an enjoyable experience, thanks again Will for sure be back and let’s hope the weather is batter.
