Houghwood Golf Club

Barely ten years old and, some say, still maturing, Houghwood is one of those courses that you simply cannot wait to play again. It enjoys a near perfect backdrop, with stunning views over the Lancashire Plains and Welsh Hills. With large USGA specification greens, this rolling, natural parkland course is a superb test of golf for all abilities. Houghwood was constructed in the mid-1990s amidst some 132 acres. A recent development is the construction of a permanent buggy track, to enable the fleet of buggies to be on course all year round. The specially designed stone clubhouse opened a couple of months after the course and houses a popular Spike Bar, ideal for some post-round respite.
