Astbury Golf Course in Cheshire is looking forward to welcoming our members.
21 December 2022
Astbury is a picturesque yet testing parkland course situated amongst the beautiful South Cheshire countryside.
Founded in 1922, Astbury is a testing parkland course located on the outskirts of the quiet village of Astbury, in the beautiful south Cheshire countryside with views to Bosley Cloud, Congleton Edge and the Pennine hills. The course comprises tree lined fairways and unusually, internally, a route of the glorious Macclesfield canal. The 6,251 yard, Par 71 course fulfills many of the golf course design criteria established by Harry Colt, making full use of the natural features of the land. The signature hole of the golf course is the 12th, which is a strong par 5 requiring a long carry over a ravine from the tee. It is rivaled by the 3rd, which is a par 5 in the opposite direction. Water comes into play on 7 holes and the gently undulating terrain is a good test of the short game, whilst the positions of several large trees make drive and shot placement critical in achieving a good score.
The relatively flat course means that it is a pleasant, accessible walk which is not overtiring for the player. Since the 12th hole returns quite near the club house, golfers can opt to play a shorter 12 hole game when either time is short or a quick game is dictated by time or weather considerations. Locally, the club is renowned for its friendly welcoming members and staff, and now, with newly refurbished visitor's locker rooms, bar and function room, visitors to Astbury will enjoy a high quality experience.
Thursday is visitors day and tee times can be booked via the Club's website. For all other days please contact the Professional shop
