    i live within 15 min drive of this course and i have played it numerous times too many to mention,its a nice course, not very challenging, apart from the par 5`s, the 10th is tricky as you have a water hazard in front of the green and it is slightly raised too, overall, for a muni course its not too bad although ive played better courses, good value at £10.50, with a clear round( which is not very often) i can go round in 2 hours 40 mins

    Have to say when i played this course the other day it was one of the best days out playing golf ive had. Some of the holes are challenging, a couple of Par 3's and par 5's and the rest are par 4's all vary in length and difficulty. Some holes are covered in bunkers so there is a fair few obsticals to get through, as well as ditchs, streams, trees etc.
    Well made golf course and i would recommend to anyone, the green fee is now only £10, well worth it.

    I often look for balls on the course, as I am poverty striken. You will often find me in the tramps pond (in my underware) looking for balls. sometimes I have to totally submerge to extract a rellum from the excrement. 10 out of 10, what a course!!!!

    A well set out parkland course, established in the late 1800's. Altrincham Municipal Golf course is my home ground as it were, as I am fortunate enough to live within 5 minutes of the course itself.
    The first few holes are quite a gentle introduction, with wide, confidence building fairways. However, this is soon replaced by some fairly tricky tee shots with numerous hazards just a gentle fade away! The rough off the fairways is brutal and plays more like a hazard. If your tee shots are not well controlled you can find yourself losing more than one or two balls in the rough. Fortunately, most of the par 4's are relatively short from the yellow tees, averaging at around 360 yards so accuracy is much more important than crushing it. There are only two par 5 holes on the course, but they are both severe dog-leg left holes, both with a hazard right on the dog leg leaving you with the choice of either laying up or playing a heroic do-or-die on your second shot. Most of the water hazards on the course are in the form of a stream which runs through a good number of the holes and is positioned in the most inconvenient of places! For example, the 155 yd par 3 10th has the stream running just in front of the green, with the pin usually positioned just a few yards beyond. This classic "sucker pin" leads most players (myself included) to fall short and land one right in the hazard!
    The absolute best thing about this course though is not the well placed hazards, nor is it the pancake flat (for the most part) greens. It's the green fees! Yes, at a ludicrously low price of £8 per round during the week with 2 fore 1 offers between 2pm and 4pm and £12 per round at weekend with 2 fore 1 offers from 3pm onwards! Beat that! You and your playing partner can enjoy 18 holes of challenging golf for the price of a few beers! Fantastic!

    Course yardage is actually now 6400 yds. A really good test of golf off the back tees, overplayed, yet manages to hold up to the constant use quite well.
