Golf Course Review

Prestbury Golf Club is an 18 hole parkland golf course laid out over just 90-acres of hilly terrain. North of Macclesfield and south of Wilmslow, this Cheshire based golf course is the epitome of a Hidden Gem.

The golf course is relatively short by modern standards and especially to have hosted Open Qualifying. With only three Par 5's barely breaking the 500-yard threshold, there is obviously more at play. Four Par 3's are split evenly between the front and back nines which average 168 yards. The conclusion is: There must be some sturdy two-shot holes that provide the challenge! Natural green sites with severe surrounds can quickly turn an innocuous par 4 into a card wrecker.

The routing is of note. The back nine is routed around the front nine in a U-shaped formation. The highest point on the course is the 10th tee with the lowest point on the course coming on the 12th green. From the 13th tee, you gradually ascend to the crescendo of the 18th green.
