Situated on the north side of Manchester, close to the beginning of the Pennine Way, the course occupies the northern and eastern slopes of Wharmton Hill and overlooks the villages of Dobcross, Greenfield and Uppermill.

Founded in May 1904 as a nine-hole course, a new 18-hole layout was devised in 1913 by Dr Alister MacKenzie the famous course architect associated with Augusta National, Cypress Point and Pebble Beach. The present 5th green is reputed to be one of the original MacKenzie greens. The clubs history has been chronicled by one of its trustees, Mr. Geoffrey Woodhead. Details of this limited edition publication can be obtained from the Secretary.

    I must have played Saddleworth over 3000 times, I never get bored with the constant variety the course offers, it is truly amazing.
    Now I have lived in Vancouver, Canada for nine years I still play Saddleworth GC in my head and my scores are a lot better than they used to be. Enjoy it as much as you can you lucky people.

    After playing Saddleworth golf course for the first time about a month ago - I can truly say that it was one of the most memorable golfing experiences ever. The scenery is beautiful and the club house very well equipped. The golf pro is particularly helpful - and also has a fantastically well stocked shop!
    All in all a grade A course!!!
