10 reviews of Burnley Golf Club

Joined for the first time back end of last year. Firstly,i must stress how welcoming the members and staff are,very helpful and appeoachable. The course i am still trying to figure out after ten months!! Lots of blind shots,lots of wind,and lots of high scores. The condition is fantastic,the greens are a pleasure,and overall it is a very fair course. The food is very good,and the clubhouse is very relaxing.

standing on the 1st tee I was thinking, OH NO, this is kendal all over again,but after the climb to first green things got a bit easier,the views are fantastic,and the course is a good test,the wind will play a big part in how well you score here,the 18th from an elevated tee is one of them holes you could stand hitting balls all day.Very welcoming in clubhouse an pro shop.

I've played Burnley a few times and the one thing that you have to hope and pray for is good weather! Set on moorland above the town with some terrific views but little or no shelter, Burnley can be a real test of golf or, if I'm honest, it can be reduced to sheer farce if the weather intervenes. There are a lot of blind holes which make it very difficult for first time visitors to score well. Once you know your way around though it offers a fair test to any handicapper. I've always assumed the signature holes are 10 and 11 (from memory), an attractive dog leg par 4 which is driveable once you know where you're going, and a tricky par 3 where on the green you get above the flag at your peril! The greens are generally ok, though they have had problems with drainage over the past year which led to some work being done on them which adversly affected them for a period, but I believe that has now been rectified. The atmosphere and welcome at the Club is always freindly, and the catering side of things they have off to a tee.

One of the best courses i have played in a long time. The course is in excellent condition and some of the holes have the most spectacular views looking over Burnley and i will certainly be recommending this Golf Course to any Golfing friends of mine and i look forward to visiting again in the near future,

Lots of blind tee shots or approaches. In very good nick, friendly members and good value. Will certainly play again and should be a little easier now I know some of the lines.

I am a member at Burnley G.C.The course is a pennine moorland course , which when the wind blows - i.e. most of the time , can provide for a very tough round of golf.Club selection is very difficult and there are quite a few blind tee shots.On a clear day the course provides spectacular views across the Pennines and across to the Fylde coast.

I think that Burnley is the best golf course in the area with the exception of possibly Clitheroe. I played the course on several occasions and each time i have enjoyed myself immensly and i fully intend to go back in the foreseable futer. The greens are the best that i have had the pleasure of sampling and they run like a dream and the fairways are like velvet and as for the tees look like they have been through the lapping process they are that good

I think that Burnley golf club is of the highest calibre with the perfect fairways and the top quality greens. Burnley golf club is one of the top courses in the area and I can only advise you to visit when you are in the area or if you just want to play the course which is quite understandable because it is truely magnifisant. The greens at Burnley are of the highest calibre and again they are the best around and you just have to play on them to realise why they are thought so highly of by all who have been lucky enough to sample them. On the fairway front they are also extremely good and lush. They are at the standard that they are the best fairways that I have played on and the controll with the irons available is out of this world. Also the fairways are easy to hit woods off if you need to. The tee beds are large and flat and they could,nt be in better condition. To top that the course is kept in remarkable condition throught the year and the facilities are great with the added bonus of extremely reasonable green fees.

Burnley Golf Club is a great golf club with impecable fairways and greens and the club is great. I advise anyone to take on the challenge of the moorland supercourse. The proffesional is great aswell.

Burnley golf Club is one of the highest golf courses int the area so the wind is an obvious problem. The greens at Burnley are truely magnificant with a true well running surface and a soft receptive structure witch can catch out the unsospecting average golfer that is not used to being able to achieve backspin. The fairways at Burnley are very good and lush and a good iron player will definatly apreciate them and se them as a real treat. The course layout is very interesting and there are about 9 blind shots involved in a round but the par 4 10th and the par 3 11th more than make up for the blind shots. Afterall the par 4 10th has a blind carry over moorland to the green. The par 3 11th is sett in a gully surrounded by vegetation and at 112 yds requires nothing more than a well hit wedge to find the surface. Good players must watch out at this hole as it is very easy to spin your ball all the way off the miledly sloping green. The par 3 7th hole is off a hugely elevated tee while the green awaits further down the hillside. This hole can be a sand iron or a driver depending on the wind. The par 4 18th is an absolute beauty with a blind drive and a well reachable green and then you can enjoy the views as you decend towards the club house to the final green.
