Bolton Old Links GC
Bolton Old Links Golf Club, a fantastic Championship Golf Course, a challenging and most enjoyable Par-72 layout, contrasting of two loops of nine with the front half surrounded by the back half. Bolton Old Links is a lovely exposed moorland location, which means wind mainly contributes to the experience, along with our fantastic challenging greens.
The highest point of the course sits on the 12th hole, from where you can experience magnificent breath taking views of the four surrounding counties.
The Golf Club was first opened in1891 as a 9-hole course, the very first Golf Club in the Bolton area. In 1921, the course was developed into its present 18-hole layout by renowned golf course architect, Dr Alister MacKenzie, who was responsible for many wonderful courses worldwide, including Augusta National home of “The Masters” … As a result, we are very proud to have been granted membership of the MacKenzie Society.
Bolton Old Links was designed as a traditional old style or “Links” course, referring to the terrain, layout and ever-present windy conditions due to its height above sea level, rather than a location next to the coast.
The course has been selected as a venue for many professional’s events, including the European Satellite Tour, the Wilson PGA Championship, 1836 tour and more recently Home to the PGA Lancashire Open
A true test of golf, Bolton Old Links has 18 uniquely challenging holes, complimented by a welcoming clubhouse.
