The Wilmslow Golf Club

The Wilmslow Golf Club offers an ideal blend of old and new, traditional and modern. Founded in the late 1880s, it is one of the oldest clubs in Cheshire and has occupied its present site for over a hundred years. The present course was opened in March 1903, but over the following years right up to today it has been modified and developed by a series of eminent golf course architects so that it still provides both a stern challenge for the most gifted of golfers and a fair test for all.

Located only a couple of miles from Wilmslow's busy town centre, the course nestles in wooded Cheshire farmland with a meandering stream crossed by four of its eighteen holes. It regularly wins awards and is recognised as a leader in the environmental and ecological priorities of golf course management.

Rated one of the finest inland courses in the North West of England, always in first-class condition and playable in all but the most extreme of weathers, The Wilmslow Golf Club is a perfect haven from the stress of business and the cares of daily life.

The Clubhouse occupies the site of the original Pownall Brow Farm, but it too has been developed over the years and provides excellent locker room, social and catering facilities in a peaceful rural setting.

The Wilmslow Golf Club enjoys the distinction of being the only course in Cheshire where it was once possible for European Tour professionals’ to earn Ryder Cup points. That was in the days when the club proudly hosted the Greater Manchester Open and the Martini International, two of the tournaments which heralded the arrival on the European scene of the great Spanish and German golfers.

In the late 70’s and early 80’s no fewer than six Ryder Cup captains of the future – Tony Jacklin; Bernard Gallagher; Bernard Langer; Ian Woosnam; Sam Torrance and Nick Faldo- tried to master the 6,635-yard par 72 course. And nine members of the European team that won the Ryder Cup in 1985, for the first time in 27 years, had played in the Martini at Wilmslow in 1983.

In more recent times Wilmslow has been a regional qualifying course for The Open and has been the venue for many county championships and inter-county matches. Located only two miles from Wilmslow town centre and within 10-15 minutes of the motorway network, the parkland course has a figure-of-eight layout and embraces a meandering stream which is a feature of the opening hole and three par threes. The greens and fairways are in excellent condition throughout the year.
