The beautiful and well-appointed parkland course at Hazel Grove Golf Club is characterised by several natural water hazards. Add to these the planting of a further 6,500 trees during the reconstruction of 1990 to supplement the existing ones and you can see why careful course management is required by golfers of all levels.
The course has a number of feature holes each presenting its own individual challenge.
The par 5 third is as testing as any and ranks amongst the best in Cheshire while the best of the par 3's is arguably the eleventh, both for its degree of difficulty and picturesque layout.
Equally, the eighteenth finishing hole with its backdrop of the chalet-style clubhouse ranks with the best on the course.
With so many outstanding holes, it's hard to highlight any one as a 'signature' hole. However, the fifteenth, dominated by a large sweeping pond which runs along the left hand edge of the fairway, and across the front and down the left of the green, must take the honour. At 285 yards, this par 4 represents the ultimate risk or reward hole. From the elevated tee the green seems within reach with a well struck drive, but your mind is further concentrated by the out of bounds which runs along the right edge of the fairway. The decision is yours - lay up, or take on the green.
Hazel Grove Golf Club is proud to be a tour venue on the roster of the EXEL Pro Tour and is also an official PGA qualifying course.
