Our 18 hole par 68 course was designed by PGA master professional Richard Bradbeer in 1991 and has matured to be one of Lancashires finest courses. The course offers a challenge to all abilities without being too punishing on the wayward drive or your legs due to the flowing nature of the course.
Garstang Golf Course was built in 1992 and, alongside the hotel which opened for the British Open golf Chamionships at nearby Lytham, has now become a well established and respected golf facility for golf in the North West.
The course is playable all year round thanks to the excellent drainage and layout. The greens are amongst the finest of Preston golf clubs and Lancashire golf clubs and prepared to competition standards which has led us to being one of the most popular pay and play courses for golf in the North West.
The club house and adjoining hotel provides excellent catering facilities for our golfers and the location makes an ideal central hub for golf in the North West. Only 30 minutes from Preston, Lancaster and ‘The Golf Coast’ with Lytham and Blackpool, the course and its facilities attract keen and casual golfers for Blackpool golf, Preston golf and Lancashire golf.

In the early 1990’s after over 300 years of farming and caring for the land the family decided to close down the dairy farm and build a golf course.
After centuries of installing drainage and maintaining fields the change was not as big a jump as might first be thought. In 1991 the family set about designing the course with help from Richard Bradbeer who had already been Captain of the PGA and has since been awarded Master professional status. The designs complete the heavy machinery set about shaping the course, installing further drainage and setting the foundations for the greens. Late in 1991 the foundations where completed and the greens seeded.
This is the first clubhouse built in 1992, fondly know as the wood hut it contained a bar, pro shop and changing rooms
Early in the summer of 1992 the course opened and was immediately popular with queues around the old wooden clubhouse a common sight. With the tireless care and attention of the ground staff the course matured quickly and as the trees grew the courses reputation grew with them.
Every year since, the ground staffs have made improvements with either a new tee or bunker, moving a tree or reshaping a green. This has ensured the course is still as popular today as it was then.
