These are exciting times at Pleasington Golf Club as we have been included in the newly released Golf Monthly Top 200 Courses in the UK & Ireland listing for 2023/24
This is in recognition of our £1m investment programme under the guidance of renowned Golf Course Architect, Ken Moodie, and we’d love you to come and visit us.
The golf course is simply stunning, with breath-taking views across the Lancashire countryside and gives a real sense of tranquillity. Set in the rural village of Pleasington, the course is 5 minutes from the M65 and 10 minutes from the M6 Preston junction.
A Heathland Challenge
Our course is a 12 time Open Qualifying venue which is set in a rare area of heathland. This combines beautifully with some ancient woodlands. Backing on to the famed Hoghton Tower where the “Sirloin” was created when King James I of England knighted the loin of beef. The course is lucky to be based mainly on sand, with excellent drainage even in the wettest conditions with fabulous greens and beautifully defined aprons. Providing a real heathland challenge and of a Championship standard. Higher handicappers can also benefit from 5 different tee options to cater for all abilities.
Originally designed by George Lowe Snr and later extended by Sandy Herd. The layout offers the golfer a unique challenge whilst offering a wonderful variety of holes across different elevations. Following the building of the new bridge in 2014, the 5th and 11th holes were swapped. Par for the outward 9 nine is now 38. It has 3 par 5’s giving the golfer the chance to post a score including the famous 7th hole “Mill” with its split-level fairway (watch a video on how to play the Mill). Our back nine however has 3 par 3’s and 6 par 4’s. This indeed presents the golfer with very little room for error, including the tough 13th “Lodge” which can play over 450 yards and the dramatic par 3 12th hole “Owlets” played across a valley.
Pleasington offers the golfer the chance to play many types of shot. You can fly it all the way or conversely, play a more links style game. It is a great test of golf which is complemented by the beautiful views across the Lancashire countryside and real sense of serenity.
