The SAS Emblem says "Who dares wins" Welcome to Lobden Golf Club.
Lobden sits high on the Lancashire Pennine Moor and its 9 hole layout will challenge every level of Golfer particularly if the wind is blowing. In fact if you can play to your handicap when the wind blows at Lobden you'll be more than pleased!! Sadly due to "charter" Lobden GC has to share its fairways with grazing live stock which sometimes has a detrimental effect on the condition and appearance of the course, nevertheless the members and green-keeping staff make every effort to keep the course in good condition. The Greens are protected and are usually excellent, but not to be taken for granted, it is also a very good idea not to stray too far off the fairways as moorland rough is the real deal. This is a place you must play at least once, so if you can put away your preconceived ideas that all Golf Courses have to be 18 holes and cosmetically perfect before you can enjoy a round then this challenging layout is just the ticket.
TIP Club House Opening times vary so do some research (e.g. Changing Rooms) web site is a good place to start. Honesty Box in operation. Members are "salt of the earth" and will welcome you with open arms so if you can play a round with a member it will be worthwhile. On a warm and clear day the views from the 6th Tee are spectacular.
