Heaton Park Golf Club

Heaton Park Golf Club

Voted the “Best Municipal in Great Britain back in 2005”, Heaton Park Golf Club is another of Manchester’s little gems.

Situated in the grounds of the famous Heaton Park, the 18 hole parkland course is a municipal which over the years has held some prestigious competitions including a LPGA Tour event back in 1984. Heaton Park itself is famous for being the largest municipal park in Europe. Once a training camp for World War One battalions, the park is now most famous for holding large concerts including in recent years Oasis and The Stone Roses. The golf course is set in the North East of the park.

Heaton Park Golf Course was designed by J.H.Taylor and opened in 1911. Their signature hole is the Par 3, 11th hole, once described by former Open Champion, Henry Cotton as “the toughest par 3 in England”. Known as “Glen Bracken”, the hole is a challenge for any golfer. Golfers need to hit a long tee shot, over a water filled ravine, to a raised plateau green.

Heaton Park Golf Course has hosted some of the most famous golfers in the history of the game including Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen. Peter Allis once described the 15th hole as one of the most scenic holes he’d ever seen.

At peak points around the course, golfers can appreciate stunning views across the Pennines, Manchester, and beyond. I’ve not played the course since the early naughties, but am hoping to get out there this summer so that I can add a more detailed view, photo’s and videos to this article.
