Park Golf Club
The Heaton Park
Golf Course is a picturesque Championship standard golf course,
situated in the scenic grounds of Heaton Park. Designed by five
times Open Champion J. H. Taylor it was opened to the public in
1911 and has been the host venue for many prestigious events, both
professional and amateur eg 1983 PGA club Prof championship, 1984
ladies PGA tour event, Junior Nick Faldo Tournaments. The main
course at the Golf Centre is a parkland course, boasting
spectacular views over the Pennines and surrounding countryside
and offers several imposing tee shots. Three lakes in the park,
play a prominent part in every round, especially on the 193 yard
11th hole. Being a long par-3 and signature hole to the course, J.
H. Taylor designed a challenge for all golfers across a deep water
filled ravine, to a raised plateau green. Indeed, former Open
Champion, Henry Cotton once described this hole as "the toughest
par-3 in England". Peter Allis described the 15th hole as one of
the most scenic holes he'd ever seen. Amongst many, famous players
Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen.
