Situated in the beautiful Cheshire countryside just 15 miles south of Manchester on the outskirts of Macclesfield, Prestbury Golf Club is a Harry Colt classic ranked 74th in National Club Golfer magazine’s 2018 list of England’s Top 100 Courses.
Harry Colt is credited with the design, construction and remodeling of over 300 courses worldwide. These include some of the most famous layouts in the world such as Pine Valley, Muirfield, Royal Lytham and St. Anne’s, Sunningdale New Course, Swinley Forest, St George’s Hill, the Eden Course at St. Andrews, Wentworth (East and West Courses), Rye and Royal Portrush. Colt apparently saw it as his primary task to work with the curves of nature and to make courses appear part of the existing countryside. Founded in 1920, his work at Prestbury does just that as the course makes the most of the dramatic changes in elevation afforded by the hilly terrain. The nature of the site coupled with the sandy subsoil means that the course drains exceptionally well and, unlike many others in the area, hardly ever closes due to heavy rainfall.
The club has hosted many county and national competitions, including the English Seniors Championship and Open Championship Regional Qualifying. In 2020, our Centenary year, we will be proud to host the Reid Trophy (English Boys’ Under 14’s Championship).
The delightful village of Prestbury, along with nearby Alderley Edge, is consistently ranked as one of the most desirable villages in the UK and is located within easy reach of Manchester city centre, the M6 and M56 motorways, Manchester Airport (without being under the flight path!) and the stunning Peak District National Park.
We take great pride in describing ourselves as a true, traditional private members’ Club. Our focus is on golf and delivering the best possible service to our members.
