Situated in Stockport where the Cheshire Plain meets the High Peak, the village of Mellor and its Golf Club are steeped in history, and the course is well known as one of Cheshire’s ‘Hidden Gems of Golf’.
Lying on the western hills of the Pennines where Derbyshire and Cheshire meet, Mellor is an interesting mixture of moorland and parkland golf. Magnificent views across the Cheshire plain and Derbyshire hills serve as a
backdrop for a course to test the skills of all golfers at all levels.
The opening holes, although not long, provide an immediate examination of shotmaking ability and are set among mixed woodland including oak and elegant silver birch. Holes seven to twelve now assume the true moorland character and the golfer who plays to his handicap on these challenging holes will be well satisfied. On the elevated tee of the 12th hole, enjoy views of up to 50 miles to Merseyside and the Welsh Hills before launching your tee shot at a green 350 yards away and a hundred foot lower!
The closing holes - now in a parkland setting include two par fives, both with water to negotiate and a 443 yard par four finish that demands two long accurate shots to find the well-guarded home green.
