"Sherdley Park has held a multitude of opens, charity competitions and the South Lancs championship, and still the course record is only seven under. The course is mostly well cared for, well presented and thoroughly enjoyable. In the height of summer, play the 14th hole and you will not believe you are only a mile or so away from an industrial heartland."
Exc. from Sherdley Park's own website
A delightful parkland course in the heart of the industrial North West? Are you kidding? Well, no actually. Sherdley Park is one of the best municipal courses I have played anywhere in the UK. The par 71 course sprawls itself over several acres of woodland with each hole having its own unique features. Generously wide fairways do not unduly punish the high handicappers, but even scratch players will do very well to finish under par. Two par fives, a sprinkling of par threes and some short (but challenging) and not so short (and still challenging!!) par fours make sure there is something for everyone. Big hitters beware - this course can bite. The course has held a multitude of opens, charity competitions and the South Lancs, and still the course record is only seven under. Blast your way around you cannot.The course can become boggy in winter, but on the whole it is a well cared for, well presented and thoroughly enjoyable course. In the heights of summer, I defy anyone to play the 14th hole and believe they are less than a mile away from an industrial heartland. Majestic.

A course I have played many times and still enjoy today. It gets a little boggy in the winter but is a joy to look at and play in the summer. The green staff keep the course looking magnificent all year. Matthew Dodd (Pre 2010)
