Course Information

Originally a Donald Steel design this Woodland par 71 course measures 6,251 yards. Offering some magnificent views across the Peak District this is a good test for golfers. Expect a climb as there are plenty of hills on offer. The signature hole comes at the 18th which is par 5 that dog legs around a fishing lake, a hole that can make or break a good round.

    Course in poor order

    Very wet of course in winter but greens tinged and filled with sand so hard to putt accurately. Lots of tractor marks and buggy marks on fairways. Unlike other courses I have played in the winter some tees are open and not winter ones and apparently no fairway mats so this ones not help the course to be acceptable in the winter. Trust the summer will improve the course. Seems to me that Shrigley are more interested in looking after the hotel side of things rather than running the golf course properly as other golf clubs in the area do.

    Slow play

    Played the course meany times and is a lovely course but pace of play is very slow. Played on Saturday 26th Novembe and it took nearly 3 hours for front 9 as we were stuck behind a society of 12 non golfers. We gave up after 9 holes as it would have been pitch black by the time we finish. This isn't unusual everytime I have played Shrigley it's been slow but this time was rediculous, maybe some vetting of golfers is needed or marshalling of course as no one is monitoring pace of play.

    Good value golf

    The course is in good condition for the time of year. Some improvements of signage necessary. Did not use a buggy but would concede it is a physically challenging round. Interesting variety of more challenging and easier holes, although a first round made a little more difficult by numerous blind shots. Some stunning views of the area and the hall.

    Stunning BUT....

    Stunning and truly challenging course. The course lay-out and degree of difficulty are awesome. However, it needs a lot of TLC. The fairways are too long, the cut grass were left uncollected, all the paths are so untidy, really messy with dried cuttings that looks like been left there 2 years ago. The tee beds are in very poor state, not well sign posted. Some of the greens are diseased and patchy in places. It's a great shame because all the holes are quite interesting and some can be intimidating. I enjoyed playing the course but I won't be coming back. The Pro shop is very difficult to find too. Tucked away deep in the most unlikely place, way too far from the car park in a building which can be accessed by walking through broken narrow road. Very depressing and unwelcoming sight indeed.

    Enjoyable, a few poor greens and annoying holes

    Two or three greens were rough, with high numbers of small sand areas so getting a ball to run true wasn't really possible from more than 3 feet out, the rest were better but then still only good municipal course standard. 4 or 5 holes have blind or blind ish tee shots where you cannot see the ball actually land, so you hit a good one, you all agree it's right down the middle but you don't find it, between 2 of us we lost 4 balls this way in two rounds, but we did find one of them from the first day on the second day a couple of inches off the fairway in the second cut. It's a tiring walk, but we did both days and got to chat and see the views, I'd suggest if you don't want your game to suffer towards the end because of fatigue you use a buggy. We enjoyed the walk. Get a map or guide if you don't know the course or risk wandering around trying to find the next tee a couple of times. Now the flip side, course is an interesting mix of style, undulating to start then really hilly, the ability to shape shots will really help you, it favors someone who fades or slices. Nearly all the course is well drained which was a nice change , I prefer not walking through water. We saw lots of ground keepers working, and you can see that they are working on the greens so I'd expect mid to late June greens could be back up to consistent standard. I'm 20 handicap , my wife 36+ , but we both enjoyed the course over all, some holes my wife had no chance on but still enjoyed, A 20 handicapper should have a good chance to bogey all except the 7th, Sub 10 handicap should do well if they are not greedy as non of the greens were the nasty type that throw you off the back or side if you come in from a distance. We enjoyed the course and would recommend playing it and we probably will go again next year. What is not obvious on the course website is that if you are going to stay you get resident rates which were cheaper than any other non member web based booking system, so if you are staying phone the club house to pre book a tee time. If you are staying just book a normal room ( four poster and deluxe from other guest comments are not worth extra ) and control yourself at breakfast as it is very nice and way to easy to over eat, hitting the spa after a round was very nice too. We were on a breakfast and dinner package and found we didn't need or want lunch and i'm not one to miss meals. You can order a nice good sized hot chocolate ( or other drink and sandwiches ) by mobile on the 8th to be waiting for you at the end of the 9th at an unexpectedly cheap price - bonus. We also got delayed on the 18th one day waiting for a herd of deer to get off the fairway.
