2014 is the 125th Anniversary of the Wilmslow Golf Club - Special anniversary offers will be available throughout the year.
The Wilmslow Golf Club enjoys the distinction of being the only course in Cheshire where it was once possible for European Tour professionals’ to earn Ryder Cup points. That was in the days when the club proudly hosted the Greater Manchester Open and the Martini International, two of the tournaments which heralded the arrival on the European scene of the great Spanish and German golfers.
In the late 70’s and early 80’s no fewer than six Ryder Cup captains of the future – Tony Jacklin; Bernard Gallagher; Bernard Langer; Ian Woosnam; Sam Torrance and Nick Faldo- tried to master the 6,635-yard par 72 course. And nine members of the European team that won the Ryder Cup in 1985, for the first time in 27 years, had played in the Martini at Wilmslow in 1983.
In more recent times Wilmslow has been a regional qualifying course for The Open and has been the venue for many county championships and inter-county matches. Located only two miles from Wilmslow town centre and within 10-15 minutes of the motorway network, the parkland course has a figure-of-eight layout and embraces a meandering stream which is a feature of the opening hole and three par threes. The greens and fairways are in excellent condition throughout the year.
The Wilmslow Golf Club is a member of the James Braid Association of Golf Courses and offers preferred green fee rates to members of other golf clubs within the association. Please contact the Professional or the General Manager's office for full details.
