Best Western Garstang Country Hotel & Golf Club

Garstang Golf Course was built in 1992 and, alongside the hotel which opened for the British Open Golf Championships 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 and prepared to competition standards which has led it to being one of the most popular pay and play courses for golf in the north west.

The course winds its way along the Rivers Calder and Wyre on the front nine offering some pleasant distractions and challenges to play around. the back nine opens up with a few long par 4's and a par 5 to test your drive whilst asking the best of your putting game with some undulating greens.

The par 68 course is 6115 yards long and is designed to accommodate the beginner with open fairways and forgiving rough, the intermediate golfer is still met with a challenge with water and bunkers among the hazards strategically placed to ensure the course is no easy round.  Testament to this is that the course par is not often beaten.

The club house and adjoining hotel provides excellent catering facilities for 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.
