Established at its present site since 1925 when the golf course was opened as part of the new Stanley Park attraction. The course was designed by the famous golf course architect Dr Alister MacKenzie who also designed such well known venues as Royal Melbourne, Cypress Point and Augusta National, home to the US Masters.
Renowned for its amazing location, great facilities and vibrant social side, both on and off the course, Blackpool Park Golf Club is most definitely more than just a golf course.
The course has always been run as a municipal facility by Blackpool Borough Council and the private members club attached to the course provides clubhouse facilities as well as a comprehensive golf programme throughout the year.
Numbers peaked in the 1970s when the course was amongst the busiest in the country with over 77,000 rounds per year played there.
The ideal hole is surely one that affords the greatest pleasure to the greatest number, gives the fullest advantage for accurate play, stimulates players to improve their game, and never becomes monotonous.Dr. Alister MacKenzie
A thoroughly enjoyable test of golf for all abilities
Stanley Park Golf Course is an undulating parkland layout with a variety of natural hazards such as dykes and grassy pits to negotiate as well as the carefully placed bunkers. Not the longest layout but a challenging Par 70 with only two par 5 holes.
Architect Alister MacKenzie has certainly produced a course requiring thought as well as skill to compile a good score.
