Explore the top golf courses in Cheshire

Cheshire offers a wide range of golf courses to suit all abilities, making it the perfect destination for your next golf adventure.

Delamere Forest Golf Course

Founded in 1910, tradition remains a consistent part of the Delamere golf course. The original designs by Herbert Fowler have remained untouched and full advantage has been made of the natural, severely-undulating contours of the heathland course and surrounding ancient woodland.

It’s not for the faint-hearted though, the opening 5 holes are notorious for their unforgiving, unapologetic difficulty. The 5th, in particular, is a true test of nerve, patience, accuracy and concentration. From an uphill tee shot, the approach to the green is left guarded by ponds in front of, and left of it, resulting in one of the hardest holes to play in the country.

Yards 6325, par 71.

Eaton Golf Course

Designed by Donald Steel, the celebrated golf architect, Eaton Golf Course was created as an enjoyable challenge for players of all abilities, immaculately presentated with contoured greens built to USGA standards, which are fast, firm, and true.

At 6,580 yards (par 72) for men and 5,642 yards (par 73) for women, the course offers a balanced test which will stretch the better player whilst remaining fully playable for those of more modest ability. There is also a BLACK course Par 72, SSS 73 – 6714 yards which provides a more serious challenge to low handicap golfers.

Beautifully situated beside the Shropshire Union Canal, the course features a wealth of mature oaks, a picturesque brook and several ponds and copses, all of which add to the golfing challenge and provide rich habitats for wildlife in abundance – hares, foxes, swans and now barn owls!
